In recognition of its 5th year on the UNI Campus, UNI-National Coalition Building Institute (NCBI) is launching a new, shorter workshop entitled “Controversial Issues” on October 28, 2014 from 1-5 p.m. The workshop will apply NCBI principles to develop leadership skills to constructively navigate potentially divisive, tough situations and conflicts. I would encourage anyone available to participate. One need not have attended previous NCBI workshops to participate in this one.
The Department of Educational Leadership and Postsecondary Education and the Division of Student Affairs are proud to announce the fifth annual Student Affairs Preview Day will be September 19, 2014.
