2008

The first annual Best Practices Forum was held on Thursday, May 22, 2008 at the Norris Center.  The Forum served as a practical way for leaders across the University to share their own specific experiences and demonstrate practical examples of successful technology, process, and people solutions in their respective units.  The day fostered creative thinking and provided a forum for some of the best ideas being implemented across the University to be showcased.
