Two students walking on snowy sidewalk.The benefits of teaching students how to work across disciplines in preparation for post-graduation careers are well-known. To learn more about creating exciting interdisciplinary experiences for students in the 2021-22 academic year, faculty members are invited to join the College of Health and Applied Sciences’ Interprofessional Education Committee for a pair of informal Lunch and Learn events.

Lunch and Learn events

March 15, noon-1 p.m.

April 14, noon-1 p.m.

Please RSVP to Karen Meyer, assistant to the dean, CHAS, to attend.

The events will include an overview, resources and a panel discussion that highlights the benefits of interprofessional experiences for students and overcoming barriers to implementing them.

Faculty panelists will represent the Departments of Aviation and Aerospace Science, Human Services and Counseling, Journalism and Media Production, Marketing, Nursing, Social Work and more.

The Interprofessional Education Committee will develop future activities and events to help faculty members learn about and develop more collaborative opportunities for students. This will include “matchmaking” but also developing structural suggestions for adjustments to current processes. With questions about how to become a panelist or general Interprofessional Education Committee goals, please email Jess Retrum, Ph.D., associate professor and chair, Social Work, or Terry Buxton, Ph.D., chair, Nursing.
