Session Descriptions

Monday, August  14th
North Lake Strong…Moving Forward
Time: 1:00pm
Location: NLC Central Campus, A206
Getting back to routine is our new normal, is a deliberative act that takes into account the steps we took to heal personally and collectively as a college.  Postvention programming aims to support us in mourning and helps us process the tragedy while also helping us return to routine to the greatest extent possible.  Getting back to routine is an essential part of the healing process.  This is our window of opportunity to transition from postvention (back) to prevention (forward).  Our North Lake College memory of grief becomes part of who we are, and becomes our new normal as we move forward. The AIMS team,  has facilitated this presentation at local and national levels.

Go Global, Go Green: Pathways for Employee and Student Success
Time: 1:00pm-2:00pm
Location: C224
Student success stems from a combination of curricular and co-curricular activities, and linking student experiences to real world issues. The SAGE Scholars (Sustainability Awareness and Global Education) program is a faculty-driven initiative to incorporate real world issues in assignments focused on themes of Global Citizenship and Sustainability and encourage students to participate in volunteer Service Learning projects on campus or in the global community.  This workshop will highlight examples of assignments and volunteer activities from your faculty peers in an open discussion format. Faculty who participate in SAGE achieve two of six SLOs and are recognized with a Green Honor Cord by President Dr. Slejko, the same cord students receive at graduation for completing SAGE Scholar requirements.  Learn more about SAGE Scholars online, www.northlakecollege.edu/SAGE, and watch the new SAGE Student Video by North Lake College Global Citizenship Faculty and Student Fellows.
