3.) CORRECTION: Safezone Training I
10 a.m. Oct. 18 Human Resources 103A

The university’s Safe Zone Project is a workshop designed to give faculty and staff the tools and resources they need to understand LGBT issues and create a welcoming, affirming campus environment for all. This fun and informative two-hour session can be tailored for any setting or group and focuses on basic information and understanding. You don’t have to be an expert in sexuality or gender identity/expression to attend, just someone who is interested in helping all members of the campus.
Additional Information: Register. Questions.

4.) Working Longer: Aging-in-Place
10 a.m. Oct. 24 Human Resources 103A
Free
As many Boomers work longer, into typical retirement years, the work environment should support the needs of older workers. (An older worker can be defined as someone as young as 40.) What changes do we experience as we get older, and how does our work environment support our aging process? Candace Roberts will talk about the aging process, the work environment and some products that are universal in helping to keep all workers healthy, including aging Boomers.
Additional Information: Register. Questions. Check out your instructor.

This workshop will focus on the distinctive demands of reading and responding to writing for graduate-level courses and research.

Join us for “Addressing Differences in Developmental Readiness among Students.” Every classroom is filled with students with a wide range of developmental readiness and skills they can bring to bear on the discipline. This session will explore how such differences can be addressed in the classroom. We will have dinner and explore new strategies, assignments, and activities which can address a range of developmental differences among students in the same class.
