Marty's Message

Last year when meeting with individual faculty members, the most frequent suggestion offered was to create more opportunities for CPS faculty and staff to get to know each other better. One specific suggestion was to have an afternoon coffee break, where faculty could gather, share ideas and build collaborations. Well, I am happy to let you know that our Teaching Partners program is responding to your suggestion by sponsoring a series of “CPS Café Chats.” These chats will come with a short, informal presentation and plenty of time to socialize and consider collaborations. Be sure to take the short survey in today’s Monday Message to help us organize the chats.
