Learning at Lawrence

Each day we see students’ lives enriched thanks to the role you play here at Lawrence. We value learning at Lawrence and we value you. We are excited to introduce a new informational series for staff and faculty called Learning at Lawrence. This series will offer sessions throughout the year on a variety of topics to help each of you learn more about what you need to more effectively do your job, resources available on campus, what various departments do to support our overall mission, tours, and more! The average session will last 40 minutes, allowing travel time to and from to keep your time away to one hour. Optional Q & A and/or tours may be offered beyond this timeframe.
