News & Notes

OER Happenings

A year filled with transitions and
sacrifices is almost gone and new
challenges are sure to come. We are
heartened that in spite of these
struggles, the OER's mission is alive and
well. We continue to thrive because of
committed and active faculty who avail
themselves of our services and on many
occasions have helped us to better serve
you by volunteering to provide
training, brown bag sessions, and
grants expertise. Thanksgiving is come
and gone and the semester is almost
over. We are hopeful that good things
will come with the New Year. We want
to extend our gratitude to all of you who
have supported our efforts throughout
this year, and to invite those who have
yet to visit with us to do so in the future.

Best wishes to each of you for a peaceful
and joyful holiday season...
