Dear students, faculty, and staff,
Good Friday morning.
As we wrap up the Summer Quarter and look toward the Fall 2020 Quarter, I’d like to turn your attention to some exciting new options we have for our undergraduate students – certificate offerings designed to help you excel in your future careers.
These certificates make a great addition to our established academic programs. For many of our students, they will require pursuing just a few extra courses. Our new offerings are certificates in:
- Audiology – College of Liberal Arts
- Criminal Psychology – College of Education and College of Liberal Arts
- Information Assurance and Cybersecurity Management – College of Business
- Lean Six Sigma – College of Engineering and Science
- Geographic Information Science – College of Applied and Natural Sciences
If you are interested in adding one of these certificates to your academic program, please contact your advisor or the College listed here. Our academic leaders can help you ensure your future courses meet the requirements to earn one of these certificates.
As a reminder, at 10 a.m. today, the Center for Instructional Technology and the College of Education will reboot Louisiana Tech’s Q&A Café. During this week’s training event, an overview of the Louisiana Tech Tools to Knowcourse, an overview of the tools we use for digital teaching and learning, will be provided.
Two other classes – Beginner Bootcamp: Getting Started with Moodle and Web 2.0 Tools – will begin today as well. Each week through Sept. 4, new courses will be added at training.latech.edu. For more information, please review yesterday’s email from Tech CIO Tom Hoover.
Searching for 2020-21 student workers
During the first weeks of the COVID-19 pandemic, Louisiana Tech University’s Career Center quickly pivoted its operations online. As we approach the new academic year, I’d like to encourage you to take advantage of one of the Career Center’s online tools to help our students search for on-campus jobs.
Handshake, Tech’s online job board, is used by outside companies and some departments on campus to find qualified students and graduates for their open positions. The tool is also used by many universities as a way to advertise student worker positions, creating a more positive experience for students looking for on-campus jobs and earn experience that is applicable for their future careers.
I encourage departments and offices within Louisiana Tech to use Handshake as a way to increase opportunities, equity, and access to career development for all our students. You can reach out to Caitlin Dartez (firstname.lastname@example.org) in the Career Center for instructions on how to post open positions in your office.
Thank you for your work this summer session. Please keep following my emails throughout the break as I will be posting important updates for the Fall Quarter.
Have a great weekend, and I look forward to seeing you all again.
