|Every Semester Needs a Plan|
Facilitator: Kerry Ann Rockquemore, PhD
Then join us for a hands-on planning workshop! We offer this planning workshop at the beginning of each semester so that you can take time out of your schedule to identify your personal and professional goals, create a strategic plan to accomplish them, and identify the types of community, support, and accountability you need to make this your most productive and balanced semester ever!
If you are unable to attend the workshop live, don't worry. Just download the slides, transcript, and/or click play on the mp3 player below for the audio and you can have the full workshop experience at your convenience.
