CALL FOR PROPOSALS:
Employee Development Day is back! The Passport to Excellence: Develop U themed day will be held Wednesday, May 20th in the W. A. Franke College of Business and Rolle Activity Center. A great way to participate in this important day of development is to be a presenter and share your knowledge. We are hopeful that you will consider facilitating a workshop. We hope to attract workshops which address various topics on a personal or individual level and workshops which address a variety of topics on a professional work-related level. The purpose of this day is to offer workshops for our employees to further their development (personally or professionally) or learn a new skill in a variety of areas.
The conference format is designed for participants to join us for
a half-day – either the morning or the afternoon for three one-hour sessions.
Each workshop will be offered one time in the morning and one time in the
afternoon. Therefore, we are asking for a time commitment of two 60-minute
