ON CAMPUS INTERVIEWS
Many employers conduct interviews on campus for full-time and internship positions. Each semester we host local and national organizations of all sizes and sectors. Employers interviewing this fall include: Allstate Insurance, Ameriprise Financial, General Mills, Insight Global, Kohl’s Department Stores, Macy’s Inc., Northwestern Mutual, RSM US, Securian Financial Group, Target Stores & Distribution, Wells Fargo & Company, Willis Towers Watson, and more. Check the ‘Interview on Campus’ section on GoldPASS often as new schedules are added regularly!

“Thank a Teacher” Project
We call it the “Thank a Teacher” project and it’s easy. Students go to the website, write a note of thanks and we take it from there. Students can say what they like and choose to be anonymous, if they prefer. All notes are reviewed before being printed and sent to instructors.
The Thank a Teacher project is a great way for students to express their gratitude for their instruction, and teachers at the University really appreciate hearing these unsolicited comments. The project has been around since around 1998.
Heritage Society Dinner
The annual Presidents Club Heritage Society Dinner will take place on June 14. This event honors Heritage Society members and welcomes new members to the Heritage Society. The event hosts more than 400 guests, provides a platform to celebrate the inspiring work being done at the University, and stewards donors who walk away feeling motivated about their future giving to the University.
This year’s event will host 4 to 5 discovery stations featuring U of M student projects focused on the theme of sustainability. The keynote faculty speaker will be highlighting his work in precision agriculture and agricultural sustainability.
Students would showcase their project/creation during the reception and interact with event guests interested in finding out more. Students submit a presentation proposal, and if selected, I believe also receive a cash award.
The AACE Project is a student support initiative from the new Asian American Native American Pacific Islander Serving Institution (AANAPISI) grant that the of U of M recently received from the US Department of Education. The AANAPISI grant provides federal funding for resources and support with Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) student success on campus.
The AACE Project just launched this semester and we have a range of resources, programs, and activities aimed at fostering academic success, personal and professional growth, and providing advocacy for AAPI student voices at the U of M.
We are currently implementing our support programs out of our new center located in room 430 Wulling Hall on the East Bank.
We have Math and Science SMART Commons Peer Learning Consultants in our center, Mon-Thur; from 10:15am-2pm.
We also have Writing Consultants in our center, Tue-Thurs; from 2:30-4:30.
“Practice” Focus Groups
Penny Edgell and a few graduate students are working on a focus group project over the summer, and are looking to set up a few “practice” focus groups for some of the grads on the project to practice on before going out to do the real focus groups.
We can offer $10 and some snacks for participation.
The focus groups are an extension of the Talking About Social Controversies study that Penny and Kathy Hull did a few years back. Participants will be asked to read a vignette about a social controversy and discuss potential perspectives and solutions. The three vignette topics include: prison ministries, sanctuary churches, and parental religious freedoms. The practice groups will be pre-test to the vignettes and a way to practice running focus groups before the study is launch in June.
Locations are TBD, but here are the four times we’ll be running the groups. If you want to participate, but can’t make these dates/times, let me know and I’ll keep you on the list in case we need to add additional times.
Saturday May 13, 10am-12pm
Monday May 15, 6-9:30 pm
Tuesday May 16, 12-1:30 pm
Friday May 19, 9-11 am
