News & Notes

Friday Morning Coffees Update

Regretfully, we have cancelled our
Friday Morning Coffee sessions for the
remainder of the Spring semester.
Response to this OER initiative has been
quite low. We will revisit the question of
whether to reinstitute them in the Fall
semester, in conjunction with other
continuing and new services, in
consultation with the Research
Advisory Committee of the Faculty
Policy Council. We will continue to
serve you by focusing on faculty and
doctoral students training sessions for
the remainder of the academic year.
Look out for those in future ORBs!
