Meeting of the Minds presents:
Spring 2021 Virtual Training Series
Meeting of the Minds is a regional prevention and health education conference for college and university peer educators, their advisors, administrators, and campus and community law enforcement. However, due to COVID-19, we are unable to gather in person. Therefore, this year the Meeting of the Minds Conference is sponsoring a nine week training series, featuring 5 tracks, a leadership weekend for peer educators and their advisors, and a Fraternity/Sorority Life Leadership Day.
The five tracks included in the training series will be Alcohol, Tobacco and Other Drug Prevention, Law Enforcement, Mental Health, Interpersonal Violence/Title IX, and Health and Well-being. The Peer Education Leadership Weekend will be an opportunity for peer educators and their advisors to gather virtually to advance their understanding of health and well-being issues on campus and how to implement evidence-based interventions to address key health concerns on campus. During the Fraternity/Sorority Life Leadership Day, join FSL professionals, student leaders, and their collaborators on campus to learn more about strategies for assessing, improving, introducing, and implementing evidence-based strategies for addressing health on campus.
Over the nine weeks, some of the best training and education will be offered to the students and professionals from college and university campuses. Some of the brightest experts in college health and campus safety will present effective strategies, model programs, and best practices for you to implement on your campus and your community.
The training series will kick off with a keynote event on March 5, 2021 and end on May 7, 2021. Live sessions will be available between March 5 and May 7. Check out the training series schedule here!
Please mark your calendars for the sessions you would like to attend and plan to logon to the app about 10 minutes before the session. Similar to an in-person conference, conference sessions may fill quickly and sessions may be closed if we reach our maximum number allowed in each session.
