Steering Committee

The Praxis Program is fortunate to have a committed and action-oriented group of faculty, staff and students on its Steering Committee.   Now in its 11thth year, the Steering Committee advises the ongoing development of the PraxisProgram and advocates for community-based learning within the College.  It is a group where faculty, students and staff work collaboratively and where leadership is shared.  The Steering Committee meets two times a semester and also hosts the Praxis Faculty End-of-Semester Lunch Meetings and the Praxis III Poster Presentations.
