On August 4 – 5, over 170 students, faculty, and staff for across our colleges and universities participated in a two day change leadership workshop. Leadership of all bargaining units and the student associations also attended.
The sessions provided attendees with tools that will improve engagement and communication as Charting the Future work continues to move forward. Attendees had an opportunity to work together as a campus team and to interact with colleagues from across the system. Teams also had a chance to debrief at the end of the workshop, to share key take-aways, and to identify the key learnings they will be sharing with campus colleagues and leadership.
