For COACHE partners who have their results in hand and those that are preparing to survey in the spring, spend the afternoon at Harvard with our team to "workshop" your COACHE communication, dissemination, and engagement strategies. You will learn how to interpret your report, avoid pitfalls, and plan your academic year as a data-driven process of institutional improvement. There is no fee to participate, but only representatives (individually or in teams) of COACHE partner institutions may attend. An optional dinner in Harvard Square will follow.
