Meeting Info

Online Only: Register Via Zoom


    1. Call to Order
      • CAP encourages everyone to make personal decisions and take individual actions that maximize the safety of themselves and our community, wearing a face covering, including getting vaccinated and boosted, and staying home if you aren’t feeling well. However, one of the great pleasures of serving on the Council of Academic Professionals is participating in the vibrant community and dialogue. Moving forward, it might be valuable to re-establish the on-campus monthly CAP meeting. The current plan is to meet as a hybrid group until June 2023 and reevaluate at that point.
