Family Workshops

Every month, Human Resources brings in local experts to present a variety of family-friendly workshops topics for parents and individuals caring for family members. Workshops are open to all family types, but each topic focuses on a specific group.

Family workshops are open to faculty, staff, students and spouses. Attendees are encouraged to bring their lunch to eat during the presentation. Time for asking questions and networking with others is offered as part of the workshop. Registration is required for each workshop and is available up to the day prior to the workshop. Online registration is available for all workshops.

Human Resources is pleased to make these presentations available in WebEx, as well, as a response to feedback. The addition of WebEx will make these workshops available to anyone in the Purdue system. WebEx links are provided in the description for each workshop.
