HSU Professional Development Newsletter - July 2018

This month inside HSU Professional Development Newsletter: 

  • L4HSU - More than 300 staff, faculty, students, and community members attended our first three weeks of L4HSU events! As one of the participants said “Events like the Learning Lock-In enable folks from across the campus to come together and build community.” This is extremely important because it fosters an environment in which the entire campus can work towards supporting our students.


This month inside HSU Professional Development Newsletter: 

  • L4HSU - Staff, faculty, students, administrators, and community members are invited to join the Library Lifelong Learning Lounge (L4HSU) professional development programs. This year we have over 60 programs in which you can be involved. 
  • Data Communication and Visualization - The final step in the data science pipeline is to communicate the results or findings.
