MSDC: Workshop Guidelines
The Meis Student Development Center provides professional development opportunities to help prepare students to enter the work force. It is up to faculty to determine how many events are required and what weight they hold in their syllabus.
Coming soon for Spring 2018 - Download a version of the MSDC calendar (PDF format, includes descriptions of the workshops and MSDC guidelines)
Students will be denied entry into a workshop without their student ID. If a student present’s another student’s ID as their own, they will be referred to student judicial at ISU. This is a serious violation of the student code.
Students will only be counted for attendance for events recommended for their grade level. Recommended class levels are listed on the Meis Center event list and in the descriptions in the Outlook Calendar.
Students will not be admitted to workshops if they arrive more than 5 minutes past the start time.
NEW THIS SEMESTER: some workshops will require work to be done prior to attending the event. Everything that is required before an event is listed on the event handouts, the calendar on Outlook, the Meis Center website, and in the weekly email updates I send to all students. There will no longer be workshops with things to turn in after but workshops will be more interactive, require participation, and some work will need to be done ahead of time.
Students must bring a laptop to all events. Moving into a more interactive workshop model will require more work to be done on your laptop.
The Meis Center* has capacity for 30 people. Workshops tend to fill up quickly towards the end of the semester. Students should not wait until the last minute to meet their Catapult requirements. However keep in mind that if students are attending workshops toward the end of the semester, it is advised to arrive early. *Other venues (FD 223 and the Career Center) have their own capacity regulations.
Most workshops are 50 minutes long.
We have no specific dress code requirements, except to “invitation only” events – i.e. Executive Dining Experience.
Unless indicated on calendar, no advance registration required/accepted for our events.
