About Celebration of Learning

Celebration of Learning is a bi-annual event designed to help faculty and staff learn new ways to innovate, engage, collaborate and align with the college's goals inside and outside the classroom. The event kicks off with an opening session in the Performing Arts Center at the beginning of fall and spring semesters and is followed by a series of breakout sessions hosted by peers that focus on one of several tracks: Innovation, Engagement, Collaboration, and Alignment.
