Posted on 8/11/2016 9:04:56 AM

Members of the Office of Housing, Residential Living, and Dining completed a five-week Professional Staff Training program designed to orient, train, and prepare staff to empower residents as they find their success at IUP.

We are excited to welcome the paraprofessional staff (comprised of community assistants and academic success mentors) as they arrive Sunday, August 14, to participate in a two-week training program. This year’s curriculum emphasizes social justice/inclusion strategies, community and leadership development, crisis/behavioral management, and suicide prevention.

We wish to thank the array of campus partners who have graciously agreed to share their expertise with our staff throughout professional and paraprofessional training.
