Literacy has great importance to individuals not only for the sake of gaining education and attaining career aspirations, but it is also important for citizens to become life-long learners who will contribute to global development. A panel of faculty, headed by Kevin Woo (Metro), from across the state will address issues pertinent to this topic.
Online resources are available for this forum.
