2014 Fall Conference
August 25, 2014
Dear Faculty and Staff:
To celebrate the launch of the 2014-15 academic year, you are invited to attend the Fall Conference General Session on Monday, September 15, at 2:30 p.m. (Yes, this is a different time than previous years.) It will be held in Harman Hall of the Christopher Cohan Performing Arts Center, and it will be followed by a reception from 4:00 p.m.-6:00 p.m. in the Rossi Grand Lobby.
You will notice some other changes with both the General Session and the reception. For instance, this year the General Session will be emceed by Academic Senate Chair, Gary Laver, and ASI President, Joi Sullivan. As usual, the reception will feature food from University Catering. In addition, there will be food and beverages from local purveyors, all of whom have ties to Cal Poly.
Supervisors should make every effort to facilitate attendance; however, critical operations should not be impacted. If you are unable to attend the General Session in person, it will be streamed live and then archived online.
Faculty and staff are being asked to avoid parking in the Grand Avenue Parking Structure and the G1 and G4 lots on Grand Avenue on Monday, September 15, and Tuesday, September 16. Campus Housing expects those lots to be full all day, both days, due to freshman move-in. The greatest impact is expected to be during the mornings of Monday, and Tuesday; however, there will be students moving into the residences all day on both days.
The General Session will begin promptly at 2:30 p.m. Please try to arrive early.
I am excited to start the new year with these events, at which we will honor and celebrate our accomplishments and make plans to surpass them in 2014-2015. I look forward to seeing you for the General Session on September 15 at 2:30 p.m.
