The Student Affairs Professional Development Committee presents…
SPRING BOOK CLUB
You asked for exciting dialogue and we will deliver! Join members of the student affairs division as we delve into some “hot topics” that face professionals in our field every day. These are some of the most hotly debated issues of our field and we are looking forward to some juicy conversation.
Topics slated to include the following questions and topics from the book:
- Allowing students to fail in order to learn
- Social Networking – Friend or Foe?
- Overly Involved Parents – can’t live with ‘em, can’t live without ‘em!
- Toe-may-to, Toe-mah-to, Residence Hall or Dorm. What’s the big deal about language?
- Is it me or them – Mental Health Issues
- Social Justice Issues – more than just buying organic coffee
- Accountability – can’t I just say it’s good?
- Do we still need Identity Centers?
Come for one topic – or come for them all! We will be meeting in RCC 212 the following Fridays. Bring your lunch – come after lunch; we promise to be a “free and easy” group of peers trying to explore the best and toughest of Student Affairs.
Remember, you’re not in the trenches alone!
Feb. 15, March 1 and 22, April 5, May 10 and 24 from 1 pm – 2 pm
