In an effort to build strong community during quarantine and beyond, we have created a divisional site for people to share ideas, tips, and simply connect.

November 13 & 14, 2019
Innovation Lab is an exciting creative problem solving event designed for the staff of Enrollment Management. Participants will formulate teams to address very real challenges facing departments in our division. Teams will have 24-hours to develop a potential solution to the issue. The 2016 Innovation Lab resulted in improved communication means for newly enrolled international students. We look forward to the results this year! Click here to sign up! Questions?

TED Talk Tuesdays
TED Talk Tuesdays were developed as a creative way to build community and learn collectively. The sessions are an opportunity to join your peers in viewing inspiring, innovate, thoughtful and sometimes just simply funny TED talks; to connect with your colleagues and decompress.
Bring your lunch and come ready to chat! Please feel free to share this with those who may be interested.
Here are some previous selections:
