“Getting It Done” — A Faculty Panel on Program Assessment
Assessment helps us to do our best work as faculty; through it we improve our teaching, our curriculum, student advising and more. In “Getting It Done,” a panel of three faculty members who help to lead assessment in their programs will share their experiences and best advice. Following the panel, attendees will be engaged in discussion of what’s working and ideas for improving assessment processes in their own programs.

WILDFIRE RELIEF EFFORTS
Donations and fundraising are the most effective assistance the LMU community can provide at this time in regards to relief efforts for those effected by the recent wildfires. It is best that you make monetary contributions, no matter how small, so that agencies on the ground can use these funds to meet the needs of the victims of the wildfires in the most-effective way possible.
The following agencies are on the ground and are already providing aid to those impacted by the wildfires in Northern California:
United Way-Bay Area and The United Way of the Wine Country both provide immediate and long-term recovery assistance to North Bay and Wine Country residents affected by the wildfires.
The Redwood Credit Union is raising funds to support those effected by the wildfires. You can select which county you wish to support.
The Sonoma Humane Society and Napa Human Society are providing shelter for animals that were separated from their owners or for pet owners who need a place to board their animals.
HURRICANE AND EARTHQUAKE RELIEF EFFORTS
Donations and fundraising are the most effective assistance the LMU community can provide at this time in regards to hurricane and earthquake relief efforts in Houston, Florida, Puerto Rico and Mexico. It is best that you make monetary contributions, no matter how small, so that agencies on the ground can use these funds to meet the needs of the victims of the hurricane in the most-effective way possible.
