Faculty sought for New Student Welcome Weekend

Faculty are asked to volunteer for small group discussions to serve incoming students during Fall 2006 Welcome Weekend. This is a great opportunity (alongside a well-trained Student Ambassador) to facilitate a small group discussion with incoming new students on the Saturday before fall classes begin. Together, you'll answer questions regarding academics, UND and college life in general. This is an opportunity for faculty to impact the academic experiences of new students -- providing general academic direction by setting helpful expectations that will guide students through the first steps of their UND education. All faculty participants will also receive a free UND T-shirt.

We ask faculty to participate in a brief training Thursday, Aug. 17, from 1 to 1:30 p.m. (optional free lunch provided at noon). The event is held Saturday, Aug. 19, and we're asking participants to volunteer for one of two sessions, either 12:45 to 3 p.m. or 2:45 to 5 p.m. Faculty who participate tell us it's a highlight! Please consider joining this important activity and contact Heather Kasowski at heatherkasowski@mail.und.nodak.edu or 777-6468.
