Campus Connections in the Classroom

Faculty are invited to request a presentation to enhance student's knowledge of various campus resources and make connections to improve their well-being. The presentation can be used as an alternative to cancelling class or as a supplement to the scheduled learning. This initiative is a collaboration between a variety of campus partners to offer interactive presentations centered on student success, health and wellness, life skills, safety and more. Topic experts from each area will visit the classroom (in-person or virtually) to deliver the requested presentation. Faculty do not have to be present during this presentation.

All sessions are free of charge and require at least 2 weeks advance notice. Topic presentations can range from 20 minutes to 1 hour, depending on faculty need. Presentations have set learning objectives and an evaluation will be provided to the students.
