Innovation Town Hall

May 15, 2014

The purpose of the Innovation Town Hall being held during the May 15 AHS College Meeting is to identify opportunities for enhancing our excellence in teaching, research and service. Using the college’s strategic plan as a starting point we want to identify and explore innovations in how we achieve our mission and vision.

A clear theme emerged from the May 15, 2014 Innovation Town Hall. That theme was interdisciplinary. Interdisciplinary cut across the ideas about research, teaching and community engagement discussed at the Innovation Town Hall.
