  • Connect with your Co-Chairs!

    Hi SPSP CoP!

    Erin and I are looking to connect with some members of our Community of Practice who are interested in sharing their ideas of what would be helpful to them! 
    If you have thought about taking on a role with a CoP but are already pulled 349758345 different ways but you have a great idea to share we want to chat with you!  
    If you have an idea for a webinar/event that you want to see happen, but don't have time to run it - this is the perfect time to delegate that task (yes...delegate!) to  your co-chairs! 
    If you're looking for ways to engage with our programming but are frustrated that it seems all the Ontario schools are taking over - we want to hear from you!  
    Erin and I are listening.  All you have to do is fill out the quick doodle poll (with your first and last name) and we will be in touch!
  • Follow up from the 2018 CACUSS Conference

    Can you believe it has been almost a month since many of us were en route to the 2018 CACUSS Conference? It was a delight to have met so many of you in Charlottetown, and re-connect with colleges from across the country. For those of you who were unable to make it, you were missed. 

    @Brigitte Wiebe and I wanted to thank all of you who attended the Advising CoP meeting and shared your feedback and hopes for the upcoming year. We are excited to work with many of you and engage with the CoP membership.

    At the meeting, we asked members a number of questions to get insight into how we can best support needs and increase engagement. For anyone who was unable to make it, or would like an opportunity to provide feedback there is a google form you can complete with the questions we asked in the meeting. 

    If you can complete the survey by July 24th that would be appreciated so that we can compile the feedback from the meeting and survey to share with all of you at the end of the month.  ​
