Career Self-Efficacy Brown Bag Presentation

In early May, Krista Soria hosting a brown bag presentation related to junior and senior students' career self-efficacy at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities.

The purpose of the presentation is to highlight the results of surveys administered to juniors and seniors in fall 2014. We collected data from 600+ juniors and 575+ seniors who responded to the Career Decision Self-Efficacy scale, completed items from the Thriving Quotient, and answered additional items related to their engagement on campus. The information shared in the presentation may be helpful to advisers and career counselors seeking to understand more about students' efficacy in completing career-related tasks across the University.

The brown bag presentation will be held on Friday, May 8, from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. in McNamara Alumni Center 235.

Campus Climate Brown Bag Presentation

The Office of Institutional Research is hosting a "brown bag" presentation and discussion related to undergraduates' perspectives of campus climate at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities.

The session will be held on Friday, April 24, from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. in McNamara Alumni Center 235. Presenters include Bob Utke, Laura Gorny, and Krista Soria.

The purpose of this presentation is to highlight campus climate data from undergraduates at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities. Utilizing Student Experience in the Research University (SERU) data from 2010 to 2014, we will highlight longitudinal trends in students' perceptions of campus climate, reveal previously under-analyzed data points, and outline differences in students' experiences based upon their social identities. Our hope is to utilize SERU data to better inform practitioners about students' perceptions of campus climate and to inspire practitioners to engage in thoughtful and reflective dialogue around students' experiences.

Please RSVP to the session and share this announcement with your colleagues.
