Note: These are the big meetings. During the semester, we will be happy to hold smaller meetings by request. Perhaps you want to group with other faculty teaching the same class? Or, you want to plan a meeting focused for your department or college faculty? Just ask! Contact Stephanie Foster at email@example.com.
Post-assessment meetings are scheduled to review the Western Civilization/World History and Global Understanding assessment results. Faculty are welcome to bring interested colleagues.
