USC Connect: Integrating Within and Beyond the Classroom Learning
USC Connect provides a comprehensive learning initiative that supports students in making the most of their education by integrating learning within and beyond the classroom. Through this presentation, instructors will learn about the components of USC Connect that are important to first-year students and the many resources available to support integrative learning.

Garnet Gate: Get Your Students Connected
Garnet Gate is an online portal for student involvement. This site not only helps connect students to all student organizations on campus, but it also highlights events and other ways to get involved. This system also helps students start to track their involvement beyond the classroom. Join staff from the Leadership and Service Center to learn more about how to encourage students to get connected!

Navigating the Academic Bulletin and Self-Service Carolina
This session will help instructors understand how to access and find information in the Academic Bulletin and how to navigate, from a student perspective, Self-Service Carolina. Specifically, participants will be given an overview of the functions of the Registrar’s Office, will learn about academic policies and procedures most relevant to first-year students (grade forgiveness, academic probation/suspension) and, in preparation for a student’s advising appointment and subsequent registration, how to navigate Self-Service Carolina. Students often have questions about the class schedule, course restrictions, holds, etc. This workshop will prepare U101 instructors to answer those questions.

Help Your Students by Making Appropriate Campus Referrals
During this session, staff from the Student Success Center and Behavior Intervention Team (BIT) will teach instructors to recognize early signs of academic difficulty and transitional challenges. Instructors will learn how to make appropriate referrals to Success Connect and BIT, including how to support students through the referral process.

Anne Frank House: Diversity Workshop - *RSVP is required
USC is one of the largest growing colleges in the USA. More and more participants from out of state or even from abroad are attending. Diversity trainings are a key tool to address tensions between different groups on campus. By understanding some key tensions and problems, instructors, staff and peer/graduate leaders can have an important role in promoting diversity and mutual respect between participants. They can learn skills for creating a safe space and through that help students and staff to adjust to each other and the academic environment they live, study and work in. But most of all, they learn how to deal with diversity and people from different backgrounds.
