How do I access the University?
Due to the pandemic, all interaction will happen within a virtual campus. The virtual campus is currently (and temporarily) located within a FaceBook Group titled “Upskill University.” Click here to request access the current virtual campus location.
In late March of 2021, the permanent virtual campus home will open its doors and welcome lifelong learners and experts. At that time, all subscribers, FaceBook Group members, and social media connections of Upskill University and Dr. Tracy Shroyer will be notified and provided instructions on how to create their log-in for the new virtual campus. In addition, member kick-off webinars and micro learning modules (providing clarity on how to access and navigate within the virtual campus) will be available to all learners and experts.
