IdeaPOP! 2017 Preview No. 2

IdeaPOP!, the division’s annual in-house conference, is set for Wednesday, May 17 at the Russell House University Union.

This year’s conference will focus on the theme “Embracing Change” and will feature a keynote address from DeAngela Burns-Wallacealong with more than a dozen concurrent sessions. Each Monday between now and the conference, we’ll give you a sneak peek of some of them.

Be sure to RSVP so you don’t miss out, and check back next week for more previews of ideaPOP! sessions.

Going Backwards to Move Forward
We want to take initiative and move our work forwards. However, before we can make an intentional change we need to go backwards to understand what has always been. Join Ashley Byrd-White, Office of the Career Center, to take a closer look at the steps to make lasting change and leave our mark.

Lessons about Change from Mom
The pace of change can be overwhelming and seemingly unending.  To survive the changing times and develop strategies for adapting, being resilient and staying relevant, I turn to my 80 year young Mom for guidance.  Join me, Helen Powers, Division of Student Affairs & Academic Support and University Advising Center, and Beverly (mom), as we discuss change and transition using Bridges’ transition framework.

Should I Stay or Should I Go
Face it–Most of us didn’t grow up planning to become higher education professionals!  We had experiences during our undergraduate career that propelled us to pursue the field. Join Alex Blauvelt from USC Connect to identify values they deem important and reflect on work experiences and consider changes for their future.

Be sure to RSVP so you don’t miss out, and check back next week for more previews of ideaPOP! sessions.
