Mount Saint Mary’s University believes that learning extends beyond the classroom and lasts much longer than one’s years as an enrolled student. That is why the alumnae relations department provides the Mount community with lifelong learning opportunities to that focus on many facets of life.
The Mount has partnered with Alumni Learning Consortium to bring workshops and webinars to our entire community – for free. Faculty, staff, students and alumnae all have access to these resources.
The webinars are recorded, allowing people to access them afterward at any time, even if they had not initially registered for the event. The longer workshops are not archived.
“The webinars are usually one hour long and cover a wide range of topics from leadership, work-life balance, communications and parenting,” says Tom Arteaga, director of alumnae relations. “The three-hour workshops take a deeper dive into subjects, and the facilitators provide insights and next steps that can have an immediate impact on the professional development and personal growth of our alumnae.”
Upcoming events include “How to Make an Empowered Ask to Achieve Success, Fulfillment and Peace of Mind” on February 3, and “Listen Like You Mean It: How to Be a Better Listener from the Boardroom to the Dinner Table” on February 8.
Arteaga notes that the webinars and workshops are just one of the many resources offered to engage the community. “Our online resource library has articles, podcasts, videos and book recommendations that focus on career advancement, professional development, and health and wellness,” he says. “Alumnae can filter the resource library by work-life balance, recent grads, leadership, interviewing or career change categories to find the content that is most meaningful to them.”
Three to four new webinars and workshops are offered each month. Faculty, staff, students and alumnae can access webinars and the resource library at https://alums.msmu.edu/events/alumnae-events/.
