February- “Making Contact.”
This session will be an opportunity to connect with professionals in the area and to continue building a professional network, especially as it relates to identifying opportunities moving forward.
- May be at a location in the GR community-transportation will be provided if so
March- “Award and Recognition”
This will be an opportunity to recognize students who have successfully completed the BPS program for the year. They will be recognized with a certificate of completion. Students, at this point, will also be eligible to serve as mentors and will have the option of being included in next year’s programming.
To receive your certificate of completion for 2013-2014, you must:
-Attend at least 4 of 6 CORE BPS programs.
-Attend at least 2 additional professional development programs outside the CORE BPS programs.
-Set up and hold meeting with at least one “Mentor” from the list during the year (includes faculty, staff, alums, and others willing to serve in this role the 1st year).
-Provide a brief reflection on your experiences and impact that it has had (to be uploaded to site).
For students completing these requirements, there will be a celebratory reception in March where they will receive a certificate of completion and will be offered the opportunity to serve as a mentor the following year. Students will also be included in the program planning for the following year. Core event attendance will be gathered. Other programs and mentor meeting will be verified and discussed in reflection.
