The Office of Student Affairs is pleased to announce a series of training for faculty and staff during the 2018–19 academic year as part of the Illinois Tech CARES initiative. Please share with those who might be interested. Below is information about the training for the month of January:

Understanding Our College Students and Their Families

Wednesday, January 30 from 3–4:30 p.m.

John T. Rettaliata Engineering Center, Room 121

When talking with colleagues who work with college students, we often hear the expression that while we get older, our students get younger. We also have noticed an emerging trend that our family members are more engaged with their students’ academic experience. This presentation is to help faculty and staff members better understand the current generation of college students and their families. In this presentation we will discuss theories relating to our college students, understanding first-generation college students, best practices, and how to work with students’ family members.

RSVP here.
