Navigating Re-Entry: 
An LTCP “Open Mic” Night

After eighteen months when many of us hardly set foot on our campuses, let alone our classrooms, the fall 2021 semester finds us returning to many (if not quite all) of the patterns of campus life that were so easy to take for granted before March 2020.
 In this roundtable discussion, we will share our own experiences of “re-entry” in the past weeks. 

Come ready to share with others in a supportive and collegial environment.
