Discover learning and development opportunities for CCC faculty and staff!
Wright College’s very own Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) kicked off its Fall program series with professor Kurt Leslie’s presentation: “From the Cryosphere to the Amazon Cloud Forest: Endangered Species and Global Warming.” Prof. Leslie and participants engaged in a lively discussion about the challenges and potential solutions concerning the loss of Earth’s biodiversity.
