IECC Students First! Co-Curricular Retreat serves as a cornerstone in the Students First! Initiative. Reporting assessment results, plans, and challenges are the highlights of the retreats which help encourage and sustain assessment efforts across the institution. Participants network and have a little fun along the way. Various topics are presented and discussed between department personnel. Members of the administration and a faculty representative attend the retreats which allow knowledge and experience to be shared in an open, informal atmosphere.
