Question, Persuade, Refer Training  |  Presented by Molly Wiemann, Central Minnesota Mental Health Center

Each year thousands of people, like you, are saying “Yes” to save the life of a friend, colleague, sibling, student or neighbor.

Keynote Presentation  |  Presented by Kristopher A. Oliveira

Explore opportunities on becoming an ally, what to do if someone comes out to you, or struggling with their identity. Gaining knowledge and awareness, we are empowered to be supportive and respectful people.

Personalized Learning Styles  |  Presented by Amanda Larson, SCTCC Academic Advising

Personalize your student success by discovering your own learning style and catering your study skills and strategies to your style. Although we are all a combination of visual, auditory, and hands-on learners, often one is stronger than the others. By finding out your own strength, you can then explore specific skills and strategies for reading, studying, and test-taking to maximize your success, both in and out of the classroom.
