Meridith Symons will have lunch tickets available for you to pick up in advance, and you may choose what you'd like to eat in Dillin. You may use the meal ticket before or after the presentation, but you might want to arrive a little early to get through Dillin lines prior to the meeting.

Currently we have a number of programs that champion the liberal arts, including the Linfield curriculum, the first year experience, PLACE, international studies, and diversity initiatives. Could these programs be integrated better to improve experiences of students and faculty, while doing more to promote the strategic position of the College? This FTLL will build on the SPUR feedback to generate a proposed blueprint for action that can be distributed to appropriate channels. Please RSVP early, as documentation will be sent out in advance of the meeting.

With the advent of free community college in Oregon, we have an unprecedented opportunity to see greater numbers of transfer students choosing to come to Linfield. Come and brainstorm a more proactive policy in attracting these students. Examples of questions that could be discussed are: What sorts of opportunities and challenges do these students bring, what might be some effective ways that faculty can help recruit them to Linfield, and how are they best supported once they are here?

At the end of Spring semester a group of faculty gathers to learn about integrating sustainability more fully into their courses and across the curriculum. Over the past three years, a Faculty Sustainability Learning Community has emerged and initiated a process to inventory the course catalog to determine which existing courses are potentially sustainability related or focused. Join this multi-disciplinary group of your peers to learn about the process of integrating sustainability into their respective courses and the development of the sustainability catalog inventory.
