The CBU Community Convocation for faculty and staff is being held online this year on Thursday, August 13. We will include a time for reflection with the Mission & Identity team, the annual Career Services Faculty Appreciation “Breakfast”, and a time to hear a virtual address from President Jack Shannon and Vice President of Academics, Paul Haught.

9:00 a.m. Reflective Gathering

As we enter into another academic year, we invite all faculty and staff to join for a brief time of reflection and inspiration led by Brother Patrick Conway and members of the Mission & Identity team, including Campus Ministry.  This event, “How We Walk with Each Other,” will include the opportunity to talk with your Lasallian colleagues in small groups as we reflect together on the challenges of the past few months and the hope we have for our shared future.
