SMART consists of:

S - Studentworks

StudentWorks includes scheduled professional development workshops roughout the academic year focusing on issues such as time management, study techniques, etc.  Students are encouraged, but not required, to attend at least one workshop per semester. Additional professional development opportunities, guest lectures, or convocations would also fit into the StudentWorks program.

  • Workshops focus on academic topics and wellness issues that can help the "whole" student find success. 
  • Professional development opportunities introduce students to continuing education that will be a part of their professional career. 
  • Workshops will be led by faculty and staff from the College of Pharmacy and the North Manchester campus.

The schedule for Spring Studentworks workshops is below; this schedule is subject to change. All workshops will be recorded and uploaded into the Desire2Learn learning management system. The spring schedule will be available later in the semester.
