An afternoon of team building at UNH’s Browne Center for Innovative Learning has become a NH-ME LEND annual tradition. On September 8, 2023, this year’s cohort and faculty gathered from across their home states of Maine and New Hampshire and headed into the woods of Durham, NH for an afternoon of team building. Setting the stage for a full year of leadership development, this year was no exception to the history of energy and enthusiasm permeating this unforgettable day.
Trainees and faculty laughed together and supported each other through numerous challenges (including a dramatic thunderstorm!) presented by the Browne Center staff. Large group activities helped the cohort gel as a complete unit and laid a foundation of respect, inclusivity, reflective communication, and respectful collaboration. The trainees were also introduced to their LEND teams and began to identify the values that will be important for their group. Together, they named their interdisciplinary teams, shared their individual talents, and identified the supports they felt were needed to be successful in their leadership journey together.
Welcome to the 2024 NH-ME LEND cohort! Go Teams!
