March 11, 2016: It's Time for Action, We Need Your Participation!
Dear Students, Staff, and Faculty --
We would like to remind all community members of our invitation to participate in cross-constituency round table discussions on Friday, March 18. The final deadline to sign up is Monday, March 14th. The roundtables will offer opportunities to converse and propose ideas that respond to the concerns expressed in the College Self-Study.
Our goal? We can build a stronger, more equitable, and more supportive campus environment for all persons who live, work, and study here.
Three different round table discussions will be held in Upper Tarble:
- 7:00am-8:30am (breakfast provided)
- 12:30pm-2:00pm (lunch provided)
- 2:30pm-4:00pm (snacks/coffee provided)
Sign up for the Roundtables here: https://srp2014.wufoo.com/forms/z1rwj1un1gntebs/
Email Betsy Durning ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) if you want to volunteer to be a facilitator; let her know which session works for you.
