Charting the Future Gallery Walk to be held Oct. 28

Posted on October 21, 2014

Charting the Future (CTF) implementation teams in the areas of Student Success, Diversity, Comprehensive Workplace Solutions, and System Incentives & Rewards have spent the past several months researching and developing initial ideas that will better serve our students and communities across the state and strengthen our colleges and universities.  These campus-led teams are comprised of students, faculty, and staff from campuses across the state.

It is vital that the CTF implementation teams get your reaction to preliminary concepts and themes. One opportunity for you to engage in the process will be our campus’ upcoming CTF Gallery Walk on Tuesday, Oct. 28 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the CMU Ballroom. Students, faculty, staff, and the community are all welcome to attend this open-house style event to learn more about the work of the CTF teams and – most importantly – tell them what you think of the initial ideas.

If you aren’t able to attend, you can find more information and resources on the CTF Blog. You are encouraged to share your feedback and ideas by sending an email to MyIdeas@so.mnscu.edu or tweeting using @mnscu or #ChartingTheFuture.
