Classified Staff In-Service Day

On behalf of the Classified Training and Development Committee, we invite all classified staff to a workshop focused on the importance of student completion and how non-faculty members can play a role in assisting students towards that goal. February 7, 2019 will feature two options for attending this workshop: 9a-10:30a and 1-2:30pm (supervisors: make note that, while areas should remain open, employees should be given the time to attend one session). Below is a little bit of information about our day’s facilitator, Erin Jones!
