 Re:  Workshops for New Academic Administrators

I am pleased to provide further details of the workshop and seminar series for Academic Administrators for 2010-11.

1. The Breakfast Club

Once again this year, we will be holding two breakfast sessions, one in the fall semester and one in the winter semester. The first will be hosted by the President with the Vice-Presidents in attendance and the second by the Provost with the Vice-Provosts in attendance. The breakfasts are an opportunity for new and experienced academic administrators to meet in an informal setting, enjoy breakfast and discuss key issues of the day with the President and Vice-Presidents and the Provost and Vice-Provosts.

The breakfast sessions will be held in the Faculty Club from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.
  • November 3, 2010 - President and Vice-Presidents
