In Focus Sessions

Launched in late 2021, the In Focus Sessions started as monthly sessions for staff to learn more about featured topics, goals and achievements, new services being offered, key changes or projects that are underway in the Division of Administration. Past sessions can be seen below.

After collecting feedback, the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Administration is launching the fall 2022 sessions which will include topics and areas both within and outside our division. We are embracing the opportunity to gather in person and will be hosting “behind the scenes” tours and incorporating virtual sessions when appropriate.

Please register below for the In Focus Sessions you plan to attend. When you register for a session, you will receive details including the meeting location or Zoom webinar link, as well as reminders leading up to the date of the session. We will use the registration process to estimate the size of the tours and will follow up if we need to make any adjustments.

In Focus Sessions are open to anyone in the division. We will announce sessions as they are finalized through divisional newsletters, area leaders and on the website.
