The Academic Affairs Division will hold its spring meeting on Monday, March 23 at 1:00 p.m. in the Grupp Fireside Lounge. Sara Morris, PhD, will use the first half hour to provide updates from academic affairs, including recently approved and developing programs, professional development opportunities during the summer, the most recent information about the coronavirus and campus planning related to it. There will also be an opportunity for questions from the audience.
Similar to the fall meeting, we will hold a workshop for the remainder of the time that is open to all faculty and staff. The workshop is focused on microaggressions, an area for professional development subject requested by many people on campus. There will be a reception at the end of that workshop, so we ask that you RSVP in advance.
