CoRE Summit Follow-Up Actions

May. 23, 2013

Before the spring semester ended, the CoRE steering committee met, reviewed and summarized CoRE summit discussion records for each topic (renewable resources, sustained and emergent learning technologies, urban/social issues, gaming/IT/data security, health, and blue sky). The Steering committee was impressed with the breadth and quality of ideas reflected in the CoRE summit discussion records and agreed that a convening meeting for each topic area should take place in the fall. Each of these meeting will vary slightly, but all will have the expressed goals of providing (a) faculty from diverse disciplines with the opportunity to meet others with like interests and (b) provide substantive content specifically intended to facilitate the organic development of collaborative initiatives among attendees. 

Over the course of the summer, small sub-committees will meet and plan the fall CoRE campus convening meetings. These convening meetings have been tentatively scheduled as listed below. Please mark your calendar accordingly and watch for further campus communication that will provide an official invitation and RSVP.
