Dr. Susan Aglukark will be at Augustana to present session 1 of her 4 part Holistic Mentoring Program! Developed and facilitated by Dr. Aglukark, the Holistic Mentoring Program addresses a series of challenges that students may face over the course of their programs.

Created primarily for Aboriginal students, this session will focus on the emotions or actions evoked by the statement:

I can’t believe I’m here!? – "Initially, we are so excited about a change in our lives that we are excited, sometimes overwhelmed, but mostly just taken in by everything around us. The Holistic Mentoring Program begins with a discussion about these emotions (excitement/nervousness)."

Dr. Susan AglukarkThis program is based on Dr. Aglukark’s personal experience in the recording industry. The session will begin with an introduction after which Dr. Aglukark will open the floor for discussion and questions.

All are welcome!

Please feel free to bring a lunch; light refreshments will also be provided.

If you have any questions, please contact Petra in room F213, phone 780-679-1562 or email aso@augustana.ca.
