Faculty SafeZone training March 3
Scott Jones, associate dean of student life, and Sarah Webb, assistant dean and assistant director of student life, will host two SafeZone trainings for faculty from 1:30-3 p.m. and 3:30-5 p.m. Thursday, March 3, in the K-State Student Union's Little Theater. In both sessions, Jones and Webb will inform faculty about ways they can reduce the costs for students in the classroom. Jones and Webb also will share some original research about financial stress felt by K-State students.
In addition, representatives from the Open Alternative Resource Initiative will be in attendance to share information about e-textbook scholarships. Faculty will have a chance to place orders through Follett. K-State Libraries also will be in attendance to share information about their textbook affordability group.
These workshops would be beneficial for faculty and staff to attend as they contain valuable information about current trends in student finances. Please share this information with your faculty members, or register to attend.
