OneCCRI: Building Solutions Through Community

On Friday, April 5, 2019, CCRI staff and faculty gathered for a redesigned professional development day experience called OneCCRI. Diverse teams of staff and faculty came together to learn about the intersection of diversity and innovation and how to apply these principles to key issues facing the CCRI community and to their day-to-day work.

Over the summer, the OneCCRI Planning Committee will work with other stakeholders to create a process and plan for supporting and implementing ideas that came from the OneCCRI event. Stay tuned for more information!
