We will be holding a brief conversation about the professional inquiry cycle as we prepare to engage the cycle again this year. Those who did not participate in TIP last year will be given a chance to share their professional history with their mentors.
Finally, we are pleased to announce that all of our sites now offer wifi accessibility, so please bring a device that will afford access to the online classroom if you’re able. We suggest that candidates also have last year’s ILP stored locally on this device.
