A Message from Kathleen Plinske, President, Osceola, Lake Nona, and Poinciana Campuses
This Veterans Day, Monday, November 11, 2019, we will not have classes, but full-time faculty and staff will report for a workday. With supervisor approval, you can take the opportunity to participate in a professional development workshop to gain a better understanding of how to support our veteran students.
Professor of History Mike Szalma, a veteran of the U.S. Army, will offer a three-hour professional development course, called “Meeting the Needs of Military Students” (INDV2256). This class will meet face-to-face from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. on Veterans Day, Monday, November 11, in Building 4, Room 311, on the Osceola Campus, and will be geared toward both faculty and staff. It will have a “Lunch and Learn” format, so attendees should bring their own lunches.
This is a wonderful opportunity to learn about how we can assist our military veterans in our respective educational settings, whether in a classroom, an administrative office or the learning support center. To register, click here.
