Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. – Psalm 119:105


Elder Service Partner Program receives designation

Generations United has proudly announced that Elder Service Partner Program in the Department of Human Development and Family Sciences has been designated a Program of Distinction within the intergenerational community. The mission of the Elder Service Partner Program is to link the lives of college-aged students with those of older adults in an effort to enrich both by building meaningful intergenerational relationships while serving together. Dr. Raeann Hamon’s application went through a rigorous outside review process and was only one of six to be recognized this year. Congratulations!

Information for Highlights brochure needed

The Office of Marketing and Communications is again producing a Highlights brochure to promote the public events occurring on campus during the fall semester. In an effort to bring more people to campus, we will mail the brochure to more than 5,000 homes in the community in early September. To ensure your public event is included, i.e. a concert, recital, play, lecture, conference, performance or any other event at which you would welcome the general public, please send the event, date, time, place, contact name, admission charge (if any) and contact phone number to Karen Garlinger at no later than Wednesday, July 22.

The Highlights brochures have been very well received in the past and demand for them has been high, both on and off campus. If you would like to order a quantity for your own department’s use, please call Karen Garlinger at ext. 7342. There will be a charge of $12 per 100 brochures (12 cents per copy) to cover the additional printing costs.

Please take the time to read our latest minutes – you could learn something! Also available on this channel is a list of current Committee members and a link to a Safety Suggestion Form.
