L4HSU events are quite diverse, well planned and easy to sign up. I loved Tableau Thursday, Camtasia workshop, book circles, graphic notes/meeting agenda, tea ceremony, West African music concert, walking with service dog, and sharing quality time with other HSU faculty, staff, students, and community members throughout the summer. I'm already looking forward to L4HSU 2016. Thank you!  --2015 L4HSU participant

L4HSU Mission:

  1. Connect programming offered over the previous year or for the future year in a coherent, organized, and planned summer series of “lunchtime” activities.
  2. Meet Personal and Professional Development needs of students (specifically student workers), staff, and faculty over the summer.
Dr. John Johnson and Dr. Renee Byrd provided one of the best workshops I have ever attended, titled BlackLivesMatter. They provided a brief history of African American history in the U.S., weaving together BlackLivesMatter movement, social justice, prison industrial complex, currently reality on HSU campus, and finally providing how we each can expand our knowledge and make not only HSU but the society better. It was a very emotional and meaningful workshop. Many want this workshop repeated so that more people can attend. Those of us who attended are going to stay in touch to follow up on what we've learned. --2015 L4HSU participant

I learned some new tricks in Camtasia Studio which will help me be more efficient when using the software. I also learned how to form a proper Haiku - and that there is a peaceful little pond behind the Rec building. And...I learned about a cool coding video game, and shared that with my techie teenagers (they loved it!). Thank you!!  --2015 L4HSU participant

Professional development is always wonderful on campus. There are so many people with so much experience and there are not many places where you are really able to tap into that vast knowledge. I also really enjoyed meeting people from other parts of campus.  --2015 L4HSU participant
