In this 3 credit graduate-level course, students will learn evidence-based practices for creating a more positive working environment.  They will identify why workplace gossip starts and strategies to prevent it from eroding trust and collaboration.  In addition, they will polish communication skills to further enhance student and staff connection.  By the end of this four week course, students will have a better understanding of personality types and how to manage conflict.  Finally, students explore the causes of burnout and develop a plan to enhance workplace culture.

  6. Identify strategies and collaborate with peers on how to build better connections with students.
