- Victimization and Bullying Among School-Aged Children
Coordinator: Michelle E. Schmidt, Ph.D., Associate Professor and Chair of Psychology, Director of Academic Leadership Programs
What is the nature of peer and friend interactions at school? Why do kids bully each other? Why do they let themselves be bullied? These questions will be explored along with suggestions on what children, parents, and teachers can do to deal with the problem. Data from a public school district and an independent school will be used to show what bullying looks like in different school environments. Media responses to bullying trends will also be discussed. And, be forewarned, we will dive into the topic but not have nearly enough time to cover everything!
- Meaningful Participation in the World
Coordinators: Katie Dantsin, Director of Center for Leadership and Service & Amy Saul, Director of Career Development
Explore hands-on learning opportunities offered to students through the Career Center and Center for Leadership and Service. Internships, volunteer service, job shadowing, leadership programs, and mentor programs prepare students for meaningful participation in the world. Presenters will discuss programs and activities such as e-Portfolio, Backpack to Briefcase, On Campus Recruiting, Liaison Program, Career Connections, LeaderShape, Community Fellows, Emerging Leaders, The 1742 Experience, United Student Government (USG), as well as club and organizational leadership.
