REACH Training
Spring 2022

Spring 2022 Tutor/PAL/SLA Training Canceled

This was a tough decision to make, especially with the potential to move forward remotely. Obviously the snow and cold temperatures make meeting in-person tomorrow an unwise decision, but meeting remotely is undesirable given the amount of interaction we had planned, especially for our new student staff.

If you have any questions about how to proceed when classes begin on Monday, please contact your direct supervisor.
