Upcoming Session

October 13 – “Optimize Your LinkedIn Profile to Promote Your Expertise and Build Credibility”

If you are not using LinkedIn to tell your personal brand story, you’re missing an opportunity to establish your credibility and promote your expertise in front of colleagues, staff, faculty, college leadership, students and future employers.

Learn how to use your profile to paint a picture beyond your resume of who you are and what you bring to the table and help you gain the credibility you need to get buy-in from the audiences you need to influence.

Personalizing Your PLate

March is National Nutrition Month! This year, we’re focusing on “personalizing your plate” because there is no ‘one size fits all’ when it comes to healthy eating. Learn about ways to build a balanced diet that fits your lifestyle, and explore ways to sustain a healthy eating pattern on a busy schedule. To help us learn about how our colleagues personalize their plates, this session will include a healthy recipe swap.

Guest Speaker: Lauren Smith, RD, LDN
