Leaders Lab

Akin to "group office hours" for leaders, this is an unstructured time for drop-in conversations and networking among academic leaders. It's a regular opportunity to share successes, challenges, ideas, and encourage each other in ongoing leadership development. Held on the 3rd Tuesday of every month, from 1:00-3:00pm.
