Congress to Campus: Webinar Program
The Congress to Campus: Webinar Program is a new pilot program from FMC which is tailored to, but not limited to, the structure of community colleges. Through a partnership with iCohere, a company from California which provides alternative educational experiences with technology, the Congress to Campus: Webinar was provided free to its audience.
