2. Faculty Association & Friends Wine and Cheese Event: Last year, the FA&F hosted a wine and cheese pairing event. It was a sell-out!

Thursday, March 20th from 4:00 to 7:00 PM. See flier Wine and Cheese Event.docx for more information, price, location and RSVP requirement.


3. Flex Day Gender Diversity Training Opportunity: Scheduled for Friday, April 25th. See attached flier DiversityFliero2 14.pdf for all the information on this offering.
