Bi-Annual Meetings

Offered on a rotating schedule, groups typically meet every other year to discuss substantive issues related to curriculum revision, integration of technology, instructional innovations, student success and supports, and discipline updates. Peer group meetings are organized by a planning committee comprised of individuals in the discipline or peer group and are grouped by related programs or discipline. Budget permitting, these meetings are supported with minimal travel costs for college faculty and staff.
