He conducted an attitude awareness exercise that challenged the crowd of 50 attendees to grade their own attitudes, and provided action steps to improve approaches in working with others.

The event started with an update on the academic and construction initiatives at the land grant institution from SDSU President Barry Dunn. He discussed the university’s new strategic plan and goals associated with moving the university forward for the future.
