Communities of Practice

In 2017-2018, we’ll be offering regional communities of practices for professionals and faculty to work with peers on common challenges and opportunities. We are currently seeking co-chairs for these communities. Co-chairs will facilitate throughout the year and receive a stipend. Find out more and apply by April 17.
