LINK Event on Sustainability
The ESSP Department together with the UND Center for Community Engagement is organizing the LINK Event on Sustainability. This is a networking event/meeting that puts together students of a specific discipline with the professionals in Grand Forks in the same specific discipline. This event is a good compliment to Earth Day and is being held at the Gorecki Alumni Center with a panel/debate from 3:00-5:00 pm.
Program Goal: Link students with professionals in the same discipline to encourage career awareness, learning, mentorship, project support and resources, networking, and strengthening university/community collaboration and support.
Program Agenda: Gather community professionals and unversity students that will allow students and professionals in the same discipline to meet and discuss career opportunities, ideas, and goals. Each month a new discipline will be chosen. Community professionals in that career field will be invited along with students from the corresponding major or minor.
Outcomes - Students: 1) Create better awareness and understanding of available careers in Grand Forks, keeping new graduates in our community, 2) Allow for guidance, collaboration, and/or mentorship on student projects, 3) Networking to create potential internships or employement upon graduation, and 4) Improve students' professional development.
Outcomes - Professionals: 1) Obtain student assistance and input on projects, 2) Serve to the youth of our community and university, and 3) Obtain pool of potential new employees/interns.
