Curious about LEAN?

Are you curious about Lean and continuous improvement? Want to find a way to boost your resume? Looking for a new way to be more productive and organized? Well, here is your chance. Mark your calendars.

Students, we are hosting an information session for you on from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 25 in the East Reading Room of the Library. There will be food, refreshments and a learning opportunity or two. You may not know much about lean right now, but employers do, and it is a valuable professional skill that could help you land your next interview or job. This information session is a great way to be introduced to the skills in an informal setting, and to find out about other opportunities for you, on campus, to increase your skills.
