Complimentary Webinar: Strengthening Institutions Through Innovation

2:00-3:00 ET

These are challenging times for smaller, independent higher education institutions in the United States. The webinar will share lessons learned from 30 years of innovation attempts at the University of Charleston in West Virginia. The lessons come from both successes and failures, so the webinar is not a brag fest. It is, however, a testimony that even small schools can change what they do and the collegiate environment in which they do it. 

The webinar will be held with GoToWebinar. 

System Requirements: 
PC-based attendees 
Required: Windows® 7, Vista, XP or 2003 Server 

Macintosh®-based attendees 
Required: Mac OS® X 10.4.11 (Tiger®) or newer 

All AGB webinars are recorded. A copy of the recording will be provided to all registered participants 24-48 hours after the live webinar.
