ITLC Welcome
August brings us another round of news, students, and faculty. It also allows us to put some of our leadership skills into action with the busy time of the year. Read on for some great opportunities for growing your leaderful behavior and expanding your relationships.
We also want to make sure everyone feels welcome in the community and comfortable communicating with others. We should welcome the folks from the MOR Associates ITLP cohorts of CIC 2015 and IU ITLP 5. Additionally, the 7th IT Leaders Bootcamp graduates are eager to put their new knowledge to the test.
