Important Note: Public Safety will also be hosting Safety Emergency Responder Training in the WBT building on the Western Campus the day of Colloquium. The training will involve Parma, Parma Heights, S.W.A.T, Tri-C and other surrounding police departments that would respond to the Western Campus in the event of an active shooter. The entire WBT building will be used for the training and access to this building and parking lot C will be prohibited, except for these officers. The Colloquium sessions will occur in buildings WSS, WHTC, WHCS, and the Field House. Parking for Colloquium is designated in lots A and D. Please park only in the lots A or D and enter through the Field House entrance.
Please note that in an effort to offset some of the costs for lunch, we will be collected $5.00 from participants on the day of Colloquium as we have in the past. This year’s menu will feature a pasta bar with marinara and alfredo sauces, grilled chicken, sautéed broccoli, salad, garlic bread and an assortment of desserts. When you register in TEC for Session A, you will be asked if you plan on attending lunch.
