Tech Day





Tech Day 2018 was held Thursday, October 4, 2018 in the Lavin Bernick Center, 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM. This year's Tech Day topic was centered around re-imagining the university experience. Participants and representatives from Information Technology gathered to share thoughts on how teaching and learning should evolve to take advantage of emerging technologies.
