Week of 10.09.2017 – What’s Happening

Below are the learning and professional development opportunities being offered next week.

Monday, October 9th:

In 2016, the Governor of Vermont signed a proclamation to redesignate what was once Columbus Day as Indigenous Peoples Day. This year, that day falls at the start of the week of October 9-13, and Champlain College will celebrate the indigenous heritage of the region with drumming, crafts and film.

The college is closed on Monday, October 9th in recognition of this holiday.  There are no traditional undergraduate classes on October 10th.
