As Penn State DuBois has adjusted to remote learning, faculty and staff have remained equally committed to the mission of helping students apply their education to launch rewarding careers. Recently, a Virtual Career Fair was held, affording students the opportunity to gain experience in interviewing for jobs and in presenting themselves in a professional setting.
Director of Student Affairs Rebecca Pennington has received the inaugural Penn State DuBois Staff of the Year Excellence Award. The award is extended to a staff member who goes above and beyond their normally assigned job responsibilities in resolving a particularly difficult dilemma, being exceptionally creative, or being responsive to others.
Penn State DuBois Lecturer of Human Development and Family Studies Marly Doty was added to the University-wide Student Engagement Network’s Faculty Academy as a fellow this spring. She will create a model to help freshmen students be informed in their journey as they participate in a first-year seminar or first-year experience course.
Across Pennsylvania, the Invent Penn State innovation hub network has pivoted to deliver needed programming and services online, by providing online mentoring, webinars, virtual speaker series, and a Virtual Idea TestLab.
Penn State DuBois is teaming up with Penn State York to offer a remote learning opportunity for those seeking the Assisted Living Administrator, 15-hour training. This training prepares those who are planning on taking the licensing test, or qualifies as the required 15 hours of Continuing Medical Education for those completing training to maintain their current license.
