Save the Date: Join CETL for the Fall Kickoff on Aug. 28
This year's CETL Fall Kickoff, in partnership with AVID, will be held on Aug. 28 at Lou's Place. Joe Cuseo, of AVID for Higher Education, will lead this year's Fall Kickoff with the theme "Student Success and University Quality: What's the Connection? What Really Matters?"
He will focus on seven principles that provide a foundation for strong, student-centered campus culture unified by common language and common practices that foster student success.
