Do I have to purchase books?
Each learning community has an extensive collection of professional literature relevant to areas of interest and the core program concepts. The choice of professional, quality titles allows learners to choose resources that are relevant for their learning and that will deepen their understanding of the core program concepts. Learners often identify key resources/research that they want to add to their own professional library and then purchase them.

What if I have to miss a day of class or an entire weekend?
While we highly encourage your attendance at all class meetings, we understand that on rare occasions this is not possible. You will need to contact your facilitators in advance of your weekend and make arrangements with them about your makeup work. This usually involves reading and writing to make up for the content and discussion missed.
