Based on a suggestion by a previous year's participant, we will also have an additional "Challenge" table where faculty can bring up for discussion and brainstorming other topics related to pedagogy. You will be invited to provide your prompts and questions of interest if you sign up for the challenge table.
For Unit Heads
The recent meeting held for the further development of Inclusion Advocates included the reminder from the Office of Inclusion and Equity that search plans should include job ad placement in an appropriate veterans' job listing site.
