Our workshop will start at 10 AM on Friday April 9th 2010, to allow those flying or driving to arrive on that day. We will finish at 3:30 PM that afternoon, which will allow attendees to return home later that day, if desired.

The plan for the workshop is to start at 10 AM with the presentation by the two people from the STRIDE U-Michigan group, which will last until 12:30 PM. Then we will have lunch on the balcony overlooking the foyer of CSL, and then go go back for an extended Q & A session after lunch. The Michigan team thinks that the plans for implementation need to be individualized for each campus, as we have such different missions and populations. The workshop will end at 3:30 PM on Friday, April 9th.

Thursday evening, attendees are invited to attend a special lecture at FSU by Brian Greene, entitled "The Fabric of the Cosmos," at 8 PM at the Fallon Theatre on FSU's campus. Tickets are $10 each and can be ordered online. For more information go to this page.

Also please plan on recording a 10-minute presentation for GEOSET during your stay in Tallahassee. GEOSET Web site is in our grant as a form of dissemination. Visit this page for more information on scheduling the presentation.
