Discussions for Deans

CCAS will continue our ongoing series of online discussions for the CCAS community to help support and guide us through this hectic time; no registration needed, no fee. All sessions will be held from 4:00-5:00 Eastern time via the same Zoom link. Check here frequently for additions and schedule changes based on speaker availability.

NOTE ABOUT RECORDING: Unfortunately, we cannot record the discussions in order to ensure a safe environment within which all can participate. Many deans are precluded from being recorded and additionally, we need to provide a space for candid discussion and reflection.
