College Retreat Series- Spring 2024 | Friday, April 14th  

We would like to invite all staff, students, and faculty to join us for an exciting day of brainstorming, planning, and collaboration as we develop a comprehensive education master plan for our institution, on Friday, April 14, 2023. This retreat will be an excellent opportunity to share your ideas, hear from others, and help shape the future of our educational programs. We will be exploring a variety of topics such as curriculum development, technology integration, student support services, and more. 

At the retreat, you will have the opportunity to work in small groups with other members of our community to identify key priorities, establish goals, and develop strategies to achieve them. Our experienced facilitators will guide us through the process, ensuring that everyone's input is valued and included. 

We believe that this retreat will be an important step in creating a stronger and more effective educational program for our institution. We hope that you will join us for this exciting day of learning, planning, and collaboration. See you there!
