Oakwood’s administrators, school deans, faculty and staff have returned from the second Faculty Development Summer Institute, which took place May 14-20, 2017. The purpose of the Institute was to equip and empower the scholar-teacher to deliver biblically based advising for academic and career success.
The Institute was organized with the aspiration that at the end of the week, each faculty attendee would be able to:
- Describe the biblical foundations for career success.
- Use the Advisor’s Toolkit.
- Use GEMConnect to guide students to the 21st Century Career Pathway.
- Describe career placement functions of the office for Career Placement and Student Success.
While in Jamaica, members of the president’s council decided to make a detour from the beach and visited two of our Adventist schools on the island, Falmouth SDA School and St. Anne’s Bay Academy. PC members brought the children bright blue backpacks from the University, socialized with the young students, and talked to them about Oakwood.
