Faculty Professional Development Day will be held on Thursday, March 29 in the CMU. Please register by 4 p.m. on Friday, March 23 so we can get an accurate count of participants. The following link will take you to our brief registration survey.

The morning plenary sessions will feature Anna (Andi) M. Johnson, Director of Hendrix Clinic and Counseling Center and Tory Morseth, Assistant Director of Recreation at the Russel and Ann Gerdin Wellness Center.

Andi will present on “Managing Mental Health on a College Campus.” She will share information on trends in student mental health both nationally and at MSUM and will offer her perspective on the mental health of our students, how the MSUM CARE Team follows up with students, and how faculty can respond to the mental health challenges and concerns that many of our students are facing.

Tory will be presenting on “Wellness: Now Showing In 7-D.” This interactive presentation is focused on providing a framework that faculty can use to improve their overall health and wellness.

There will also be workshops on a variety of topics in the afternoon following the plenary session.
