(Register here for a Spring-Summer program). In August, 2013, eleven more SMC faculty and staff completed a 5-day train-the-trainer program, joining ranks with six veteran facilitators who’ve been delivering this highly interactive program since its inception in 2009.  Provost Beth Dobkin, lunch guest at the August 2013 COD facilitator training, with Gloria Sosa, Sunny Bradford and Michelle Dimmett
