Frederick to lead development of student engagement initiative

Posted on Thursday, April 16th, 2015

Bob Frederick, Director of Career Services and Community College Relations, will guide the development of our new student engagement initiative. Work on the project will begin immediately and will involve most units in our division and, ultimately, many others across campus. Thanks to all for participating in the processes that have led us to this point: the division strategic planning effort in 2010; more recent directors retreat and two half-day “concept” sessions with staff from programming units across the division; and the most recent consideration of who should lead the effort.
