  • 2024 Virtual Academic Conference Recordings

    Park University's 2024 Virtual Academic Conference was held on Friday, January 19, 2024 from 11am to 1pm CST via Zoom. The annual conference featured keynote Dr. Lisa Nunn, author of College Belonging: How First-Year and First-Generation Students Navigate Campus Life (2021). We explored ways to intentionally foster a sense of belonging for every student in their classrooms--no matter their discipline or modality--and at Park.


    All Park instructors and faculty can also download College Belonging for free as an ebook through Park Library. Also, don't forget to register to participate in the College Belonging book club!
