Student Veterans

Christie Theatre, October 22nd, 2pm - 3pm

Our purpose is to educate faculty, staff, and students about the unique strengths and challenges facing student veterans. We hope to promote understanding about military culture; increase awareness about common psychological and physical conditions among Veterans; address faculty/staff/student concerns and provide helpful resources. A panel of student veterans will be available to tell their stories and answer questions.

Teaching Without a Textbook

Vista (MAC 301) October 31st, 9am - 10:30am

Have you ever complained about textbooks? Too dense, too expensive, too much content for the course, students don't read them (maybe they don't even buy them)? This session describes the experiences of one faculty member who teaches three management courses without using a traditional textbook: Management and Organizational Behavior, Organizational Leadership, and Business Strategy. Come and find out more about the rewards and challenges of teaching without a textbook (and what students think about the experience too). The session will include sample syllabi, course design and teaching tips and a Q&A period.

Disability Awareness

November 20th, 2pm - 3pm

Did you know that approximately 20% of U.S. adults have a disability? A guest panel of students, employees and experts in disability issues will answer questions regarding their experiences and on how to request disability related accommodations. There will also be a brief overview of disability related law as it relates to the University.
