Objective of All College Day 2014:
In keeping with the stated mission of the All College Day Committee, the Spring 2014 All College Day will create opportunities for faculty, staff and administration to learn about multiple aspects of campus life in an engaging, enriching, and cross-disciplinary environment. When participants leave the event, they will know the mission statement, the date of the accreditation visit, and what role they play in a successful accreditation visit.

Through a guided search, participants will learn how the library can help them have a successful accreditation visit.
