EAP Topic: Adapting to Change

As part of the Employee Assistance Program, our provider ERC will present a session on the topic Adapting to Change next week.

When: Wednesday, March 4, 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
Where: Warch Campus Center – Cinema

Facebook Event: https://www.facebook.com/events/494432461215751/

Synopsis:
Change is everywhere. Our health, family, or work environment are all potential areas where change happens. This change can dramatically influence how we cope day in, day out. At times it seems other people can handle change well and we ask ourselves, how are they able to handle it all? Through this session attendees will learn key strategies for understanding the response to change and fundamental ingredients necessary to effectively manage change.

Presenter: 

Nancy Krueger, MA, LPC

Nancy has a rich and varied career, starting with her graduation from Simpson College in Indianola, Iowa, with a bachelor’s degree in religious issues and her subsequent Master of Divinity degree from Yale University. Nancy then worked for a rural county newspaper in Lancaster, Wisconsin, before moving to Milwaukee and taking another master’s degree, this time in industrial and labor relations. Nancy served as the personnel coordinator for Juneau County and later worked as parish pastor at a seminary in Dubuque, Iowa. She earned a third master’s degree from Lakeland College in Sheboygan, this time in counseling. Nancy worked at The Samaritan Counseling Center of the Fox Valley before joining ERC in 2015.

Food Pantry and Plastic Collections

The Staff Connections Committee is holding two collections at the upcoming All Staff Meeting on Thursday, February 27.

Food pantry donations will benefit Lawrence’s own student food pantry. Items can either be brought to the All Staff Meeting or to Sabin House. Here are the items most needed at this time:

  • instant coffee packets
  • tea
  • instant oatmeal
  • full size shampoo and conditioner
  • chapstick
  • lotion
  • ramen (esp. chicken and veggie)
  • cleaning items

The plastic collection is being done in partnership with Trex – if Lawrence collects at least 500 lbs or 40,500 pieces of plastic film/bags within 6 months, Trex will create a recycled plastic bench to be donated to a local organization of our choice (to be finalized soon). Click here for a guide of qualifying plastic items. There will be a collection bin at the All Staff Meeting, and there is also a bin located in Brokaw Hall.

Thank you for your support! Together, we can make an impactful difference in our community.
