The Coyote Learning Circle is intended to promote your professional and personal development at CSUSB through community learning and discussion that is relevant to areas of growth. You will be exposed to a variety of resources that emphasize opportunities for growth like communication, interpersonal relationships, diversity & inclusion, and leadership development.
Each month throughout the year we will launch a circle featuring a new topic for discussion. Bring your lunch and come prepared to learn, grow, and discuss professional development topics with fellow colleagues.
