The workshop will take place from 9-10 a.m. Friday in Rothwell Hall room 308. Participants are encouraged to bring coffee with them. Cakes will be provided. All faculty and staff are invited.

Topics will include a review of previous assessment workshops and the one-page assessment summaries that departments across campus are developing.
