Dear Colleagues,

     Through the month of September, the BRIDGE Committee will host a series of workshops organized around the theme of design. The intention of these workshops is twofold: first to provide the community an understanding of the basic conceptual tools and framework with which and in which the redesign of general education will unfold and, second, to provide members of the community an opportunity to meet other individuals interested in participating on design teams.

     The BRIDGE Committee is pleased to announce that the first of this series of workshops will be held on Wednesday, 7 September 2005 from 9.30-11.30am in the Abbot Auditorium of Lovejoy Library and from 2-4pm in the Main Dome of the Religious Center . The title of the workshop is “BRIDGE 101: A Foundation for Re-imagining General Education.” We are holding the workshop twice on 7 September to encourage maximal community participation.

     At this workshop, we will provide:

     Most importantly, the community will have an opportunity to express its questions, concerns, interests, and passions to the committee.

    I look forward to seeing you on Wednesday, 7 September.
