We are excited to announce the following InclusiveU Seminars for Fall 2019. These seminars are open to all InclusiveU students including Access, OnCampus, interns, Campus Mentors and Peer-2-Peer Partners, and matriculated SU students. Seminars are offered weekly and you are encouraged to attend as many different ones as possible. Click here for additional seminar guidelines.

First year students will begin the First Year Forum and Positive Choices 101 (if required) the week of August 26th. All other seminars will begin the week of September 9th.

Current Seminar Topics:

  • Health Matters (Mondays, 2:30-3:30pm in 320 HH): Exercise and nutrition are important components in helping people to gain control over their health. Having healthy literacy skills helps people to share personal health information with health care providers, engage in self-care and illness management, adopt new health-promoting behaviors such as exercising or healthy eating, and act on health-related news. In this seminar, students will work to understand health and exercise, and how to make decisions about their own personal well-being. Facilitated by Bud Buckhout.
  • Personal Budgeting (Tuesdays 11am-12pm in 320 HH): Want to learn more about how to manage your money so you can pay for things you need and things you want? This seminar will be facilitated by Thom Dellwo from the Cooperative Federal Credit Union who specializes in working with teens and young adults to develop good financial management skills (http://www.cooperativefederal.org/youthlifeskills)
  • Hot topics: (Tuesdays 2:30-3:15pm in 320 HH): A discussion seminar led by the students, facilitated by peer trainer, Jared Khan-Bagley on what’s “hot” in students’ lives right now. One session could be about sports,  another music, another life, food, friendships, jobs, resumés, families, etc. The dialogue shifts from funny to serious, to everyone learning and finding value with one another.
  • My Stories: Photography and Video (Wednesdays 2:30-3:15pm in 320 HH): Join your friends in InclusiveU and Peer2Peer as we create pictures, videos, stories, art, songs, and much more. This is a great way to create and share about your own experiences and the stories of your life. Facilitated by Dr. Beth Myers.
  • Successful Dating and Relationships (Thursdays 11am-12pm in 335 Huntington Hall): This seminar provides information, discussion, and exercises on the self-esteem and confidence as they relate to dating, relationships, and sexuality. You will learn skills to help with interpersonal skills, proactive approaches and problem-solving strategies that  build self-esteem, create healthy boundaries, foster confidence, and promote healthy relationships. You will learn insight and practical tools to increase self-esteem and confidence, break through perceived barriers of disability, and empower the pursuit of nurturing relationships with healthy boundaries. Facilitated by Kathy O’Connell
  • Conflict resolution  (Fridays 11:00-11:45am in 320 HH): Wherever there are people, there is going to be conflict! While you can’t control other people, you can do a lot to manage YOU- your feelings and your responses when your social life gets complicated. Learn strategies to communicate better, think more sensibly, and deal with rumors and “drama”.  Facilitated by Dee Katovitch
