Spring Training for Faculty & Staff
Dear AU Faculty or Staff Member,
We’d like to invite you to our spring training for the Extended Support Network. This workshop is open to all AU faculty and staff members. In our fall semester training, we explored the experiences of international college students, identified their needs, and discussed how to assist them. The topic for our upcoming workshop is “Strengthening God's Circle of Love on Andrews Campus: Identifying & Helping Students who are Challenged, Broken or Lost.”
We will meet at Whirlpool Conference Room in Chan Shun Hall on Friday, March 7th, 2014 from 10:30am – 12:30pm. The presenter is Dr. Joy Alexander, Associate Professor of Counseling at Indiana University South Bend.
We are welcoming any faculty or staff member who is interested in this topic, but will give priority to current Extended Support Network members. The space is limited, thus reserve your space as soon as possible by contacting Dr. Luis G. Cruz-Ortega at firstname.lastname@example.org
Dr. Joy Alexander received her doctorate from Andrews University and is a licensed psychologist. She is currently an Associate Professor of Counseling at Indiana University South Bend. Having spent over twenty years on university campuses, Dr. Alexander has had the opportunity to assist many first generation college students, with the array of challenges they offer. Dr. Alexander has also facilitated workshops to church and school communities on issues pertaining to young adults in the college environment, academic difficulties, including sexual orientation, substance use, mental health, developmental tasks, and the interfacing of faith and life. Dr. Alexander has also taught in Canada, the Caribbean, and in South Korea.
