Residential Academic Initiatives: Faculty-Student Interface
Speakers: Dr. Carl Krieger, Director of Residential Education; Dr. Mark Ward, Associate Professor of Statistics & Associate Director, Actuarial Science, and Undergraduate Chair; Dr. Jonathan Manz, Associate Director of Residential Academic Initiatives
For the past two decades Purdue has offered Learning Community options for new students to engage with an academic topic as a cohort inside and outside of the classroom. Two years ago Residential Academic Initiatives was formed to add to the Learning Community program and support faculty in their efforts to pair a co-curricular experience with academic engagement. The Learning Community program is now only one of the programs supported within Residential Academic Initiatives. This panel will discuss two new initiatives, the Amelia Earhart Faculty-in-Residence program and the Data Mine community, as well as highlight other ways faculty mentorship and co-curricular programs can be supported by Residential Academic Initiatives.
This event will kick-off the Spring 2019 Program and we welcome all faculty, staff and students to attend. Lunch provided, RSVP is required. Registration link to be emailed. Registration link will appear in Purdue Today one week prior.
