Faculty Readiness Site
An Initiative of the CBU Center for Digital Instruction (CDI)
What You Will Find Here
Pandemics. The beginning of the 16-week semester. Week-long power outages. The beginning of the second 8-week term. Ice storms. Both planned and unplanned, stuff happens. And when stuff does happen, we need to always be ready to provide students with an excellent education. This site is designed to help you to do just that.
