Wednesday Nov 08, 2017

Whether it’s a published article, book, prestigious award or speaking engagement, members of Indiana University Northwest’s faculty and staff continue to share their wealth of expertise. We applaud the most recent top achievers that have made a name for themselves and IU Northwest.

HelenMarie Harmon, assistant director and participating faculty for the School of Business and Economics, recently presented at two conferences during the month of October, including the 24th National Conference on Students in Transition, held in Costa Mesa, Calif., with her session: “Polishing Professional Presentations:  Connecting Senior-Year Students with Local Employers.”    

The other was a poster presentation titled, “From Day One to Day Done!:  Sharing Student Stories for Support Throughout the Journey, at the 2017 National Mentoring Symposium in Indianapolis.  Three business student mentors (Alyssa Hart, Brandon Gale, and Chase Lowden) from the STARS Peer Mentor Program accompanied Harmon to this symposium where they won for best overall poster presentation.
