On-Campus Professional Development Days
Our eleventh-annual NMC Fall Conference. Lunch provided.
Each year the CIE Board selects a book which has connections to the classroom, but that also has ties to our personal and professional acumen. The book for 2017-2018 will be Paying the Price: College Costs, Financial Aid, and the Betrayal of the American Dream. Temple University professor of sociology and higher education policy, Sara Goldrick-Rab, shows that college is becoming more and more important to future financial security and the dream of a middle-class lifestyle. At the same time, however, it is becoming harder and harder for students to afford it.
Faculty can get a copy of the book – free of charge. Please contact Rita Kucera (firstname.lastname@example.org) to request a copy. The book will be discussed during a session of the October Professional Development Day in the fall.
