Early Alert Orientation – a few days away

Standard

Hi LFS TAs, 

 
Hope all is well. This is a friendly reminder that the Early Alert Orientation is a few days away. Below is a description of the event. 
 
UBC strives to build a caring community, in which we all reach out and offer support when we notice signs of difficulty in others. Early Alert helps facilitate this by helping staff, faculty and TA’s better support students who are facing difficulties that put their academic success at risk. This training is an introduction to the Early Alert program, and includes information about how to submit an Early Alert and how to access resources that will be useful when you are concerned about a student.
 
Event: Early Alert Orientation 
Date: Friday, March 29
Time: 3:30-4:30pm
Location: FNH 300
Registration: (Register here)
