Jacobson Center Telegram
Issued in early fall and maybe in the winter, too, the Jacobson Center newsletter is aimed at the entire college community of staff, faculty, and students. Its aim is to update the community on the accomplishments of the Jacobson Center staff, to notify it about upcoming events, to offer news specifically for faculty, and to feature a short perspective on writing or the work of the center. Read the Fall 2023 issue here.
