Seminars and Webcasts

In coordination with other important offices and resources across campus, the College is working to provide a series of online workshops, seminars, and webchats to provide on-going engagement for our parents and families around the world. The goal is to offer live, recorded, and on-demand information that can be viewed online and, whenever possible, to offer opportunities for two-way engagment with staff and administrators from across campus.  Creation of content for this area of the new Parent and Family website is on-going, and we will keep you updated on future programs and videos through our quarterly Parent Connection newsletter and through occasional email updates. 

Upcoming topics include the student health insurance program, career development opportunities, efforts to promote health and safety, dealing with stress, and discussions with administrators in the College.  Additionally, information sessions from Family Orientation and other events will be recorded and posted here for your on-demand viewing.  Along the way, we encourage you to submit your ideas for future webcasts and seminars so we can continue to provide programming that will best meet the needs of our prents and families.
