|Welcome to November!|
It is amazing how quickly the semester seems to be going. Many thanks to everyone who participated in the various SACSCOC accreditation site visit meetings last week. I know I appreciated hearing from other faculty on my campus, and I know that your expertise and experiences helped the site team understand our college and community more.
I encourage you to pay close attention to the Associate Dean, Faculty Center for Learning Innovation position announcement below. If there is a teaching and learning champion who has had a positive impact on your own teaching, consider reaching out to them to share the opportunity.
And a quick shout out to everyone who is answering “just hanging in there” this week when someone asks how you are doing. You are not alone in this feeling! I’m sending ya’ll strength.
