Opening Day 2022

About this event

This year’s theme is Reconnect. Renew. Return. We plan to hold Opening Day in person on Thursday, August 25, 2022, from 8:00 am – 3:30 pm.

The focus of Opening Day this year will be about reconnecting with our colleagues, our campus, our community, and our students. We will celebrate our return to campus, being mindful that our return may require a reimagining of how we teach, lead, and work. By rethinking how we serve our students, we will be better equipped to prepare them for a changed educational and professional landscape as we all continue to heal as a community. With that in mind, our goal is for the workshops to provide an immersive experience, emphasizing innovative teaching, mental health and wellness, and inclusive practices. We will also incorporate art into the program as a restorative practice for healing.

ELAC encourages persons with disabilities to participate in its programs and activities. For disability accommodation requests and/or general information, please contact the Office of Professional Development ( by August 15th.

Please indicate if you would like vegetarian/vegan food. Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate other dietary restrictions.
