Our largest annual meeting, the SENCER Summer Institute provides professional development and networking opportunities over the course of four days to formal and informal educators, administrators, students, representatives of non-profits and agencies. SSI 2018 will be hosted by Santa Clara University in CA from August 2 - 5.
The retreat, held on September 15-16, 2017 in Chicago, Illinois, brought together leaders and change-agents interested in strengthening leadership that is rooted in educational values and mission. The retreat was interactive and participant-driven, with experienced chairs, deans, and professional development specialists acting as facilitators and guides leading focused discussions and problem-solving activities.
Our nine regional SENCER Centers of Innovation (SCIs) host two yearly meetings on topics relevant to their local areas, including environmental health and restoration, big data, undergraduate research, sustainability, and improving the STEM pipeline.
Some sixty faculty members, researchers, and academic leaders from the Mamelodi Campus of the University of Pretoria, the University of Johannesburg, Tshwane University of Technology, and the Academy of Science for South Africa and others attended the SENCER Symposium held at Hatfield, the main campus of the University of Pretoria in South Africa.
