What past participants are saying about the Academy Accordion Closed
“It was a great experience. One that was both beneficial professionally and personally, and I recommend it to anyone looking to grow as a person and a leader.”
“Anyone who supervises anyone should participate!!”
“This is a useful and meaningful program that supports the growing responsibilities and careers of people working at NAU. It is a handy tool box of tips, and methodologies, and it is a fascinating way to share common problems and processes from very divergent areas of campus.”
“Such a great experience overall. This kind of work and exposure is so important for NAU as a whole and for the individuals who work here. The opportunity to collaborate and interact with people across the university in this effort to grow, understand and improve was valuable, too. Good people, great information and such a nice way to spend time.”
