At least for the immediate future, we expect to be able to provide a light lunch for faculty who RSVP, though economic conditions may force us to discontinue this practice. Lunch will only be provided for those who RSVP. You may RSVP for any of these sessions by contacting Glenda Rink in the CTE: g.rink@csuohio.edu , or 216-687-5502.
