2018 COPLAC Annual Meeting, June 19-21: High-Impact Educational Experiences


Photos of President Suzanne ShipleyWelcome to MSU Texas and our first opportunity to host the COPLAC summer meeting.  We hope that our exploration of high-impact practices will move us all forward toward more effective learning experiences for our students.  This meeting provides us all with time to get to know a new COPLAC campus and share in enjoyable activities that support the important relationships that guide our work together; in addition to welcoming Chief Executive Officers and Chief Academic Officers, we especially invite all staff and faculty committed to implementing undergraduate research, first-year experience, and capstone project programs--as well as any other high-impact practice initiatives--to this meeting.  I hope you benefit from our Texas hospitality and the exciting program developed by our COPLAC colleagues.

Welcome to Wichita Falls!
