New Series: Did You Know?: Information About Resources on Campus

The Susan Bulkeley Butler Center for Leadership Excellence is unveiling a new series in the 2018-19 academic year: "Did You Know? Information About Resources on Campus." The goal of the "Did you Know?" series is to share information about campus resources and enable a broader discussion of scholarship that addresses bias, inclusion and retention among all constituencies on campus. These initiatives are intended to facilitate the success of faculty, staff and students, which in turn can contribute to the leadership pipeline.

Date: August 28, 2018

Time: Noon to 1:30 pm

Topic: Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities

Speakers: Linda Mason; Katherine Sermersheim, Jeff Stefancic, and Steven Yeagley

Place: Stewart Center, Room 302.

Registration is available online. Faculty, staff and students are welcome to attend. The event will also serve as the center's welcome back reception.
