About the CPL Campus Roadshow

The first roadshow convened on April 7, 2023, at Minnesota State University, Mankato. There were several accomplishments, including staff members being able to talk through process questions and learn what other campuses were doing. Staff further began to visualize additional CPL processes on their campus and identify a couple of easy changes/additions as their next steps. During faculty round-table discussions, 14 external assessment evaluation decisions were documented. As a refresher on CPL Campus Roadshows, please refer to the CPL Campus Roadshow Overview video.
