Call for Posters: EWU Strategic Planning Conference

Dear Campus Community:

EWU will host its 2nd Strategic Plan Conference on Sept. 26, 2013, on the Cheney Campus. This year’s conference, titled “A Big Start – An IncREDible Future,” will be a time to celebrate the outstanding progress that has been made in the first year of the Strategic Plan and look ahead at year two actions.

“A Big Start – An IncREDible Future” will begin with a luncheon featuring our keynote speaker, followed by breakout sessions and an open-house reception with poster presentations from faculty, staff and students.

Application for Poster Presentations

The planning committee is seeking staff, faculty and students to submit an application to participate in a poster presentation on an important action from the strategic plan that was accomplished or where significant progress was made in the first year.
