Are you interested in seeing the Faculty Centers Advisory's two models? Do you want to make sure that your voice is heard as the Faculty Centers Advisory (FCA) continues to work towards making a final proposal for F&M's faculty center? If so, be sure to stop by October's Lunch on Learning, which runs from noon to 1:30 in the faculty catering suite on October 17. The FCA will present two models and will have have posters displaying all of your feedback from the September 8 Kick Off Event. This is the BEST time to make sure your voice is heard by every member of the FCA. Mark your calendars!
Below, you can see a summary of the two proposals the FCA will present at October's LOL. Use this information to prepare yourself for the LOL and to form some questions you know you will want to ask in advance. If you would like to take a look at the models the FCA examined to develop these proposals, head on over to the Kick Off Event page to take a look at what was presented there.
