Topic: Making Money and Making Meaning
Date: Wednesday, February 8th
Time: 12:30 pm - 1:20 pm
Location: Indiana Room, 346 IMU

College can be expensive. Often students find on campus employment to help fund their tuition, books, and living expenses, but working on campus has more benefits than just making money! Join Josh Frahm from the Office of Student Employment and UI Step Program and Crystal Stockdale from the Pomerantz Career Center to hear more about HireAHawk and how students can learn and grow through student employment on campus.

Topic: Family Ties: Working with Parents & Families
Date: Wednesday, March 8th
Time: 12:30 pm - 1:20 pm
Location: Indiana Room, 346 IMU

Each year, the University welcomes over 5,000 new first-year students. What that number doesn’t include is the 10,000+ family members that support their students and that many of us will interact with throughout the student’s time. Sara Moninger, editor of Parent Times and Bret Goethe, Director of Strategic Communication & External Relations and Director of the Parent & Family Network will share what the University is doing to partner with families and parents. We will also explore ways we can positively collaborate with our familial constituents to support student success.

Topic: Campus Confidential: Iowa's Confidential Resources
Date: Wednesday, April 12th
Time: 12:30 pm - 1:20 pm
Location: Indiana Room, 346 IMU

In our work in higher education, many of us know the importance of privacy because of FERPA, but how is privacy different than confidentiality? In this session, you will hear from Paula Keeton from University Counseling Service, Linda Stewart Kroon from the Women’s Resource and Action Center, Bronwyn Threlkeld-Wiegand from the Employee Assistance Program, Susan Junis from the Rape Victim Advocacy Program, and Cynthia Joyce from the Office of the Ombudsperson to learn more about their offices and how being confidential impacts their work. We will also explore ways non-confidential faculty and staff can partner with their office to best support students.
