Campus Seminars

We offer on-campus 1 day seminars to LAC affiliates.

LAC will provide you and your guests with an agenda tailored to the needs of your campus and its climate. Discussions will build off of experiences at the U and focused on action steps that can bring you to our office and institution’s goals. Speak to your institutional relations contact if you are interested in exploring this opportunity.
