ASK: Alumni Sharing Knowledge

Alumni Relations and Career and Community Engagement launched a new program in spring 2014: ASK: Alumni Sharing Knowledge. Our goal is to provide free webinars facilitated by Naropa University alumni for the Naropa community. This is an opportunity to share the powerful expertise in the alumni community with Naropa alumni, students, staff, faculty and guests, online so anyone can access from anywhere! These 45 minute webinars are focused on professional and personal development, for the Naropa community, from alumni.
