America Reads Program Recap

We are excited to share the data recap of our 2019-2020 America Reads Program.
 
The federal program, started in 1996, was built off the Department of Education's work-study program. The program provides part-time employment for college students who tutor preschool, elementary, and middle school children in math and reading.
 
When the COVID-19 pandemic closed schools in March 2020, the program adapted to the change and began filming videos of the Wichita State students reading books and posted them on the Wichita State Career Development Center's website.
 
Teri Robertson, Office Manager for the Wichita State University Career Development Center, has taken on the role of America Reads program coordinator for the past two years, and has done an excellent job expanding the program on campus. If you have questions or want more information, contact Teri at ext. 6131 or teri.robertson@wichita.edu.

Diversity and Inclusion Career Resources

The Career Development Center is committed to serving students, alumni, and community members of diverse backgrounds and seeks to provide comprehensive career services that reflect multicultural awareness. We are excited to launch these new resources that are designed to provide information that can assist in career preparation and job search.

Visit our Diversity and Inclusion Career Resources page for career information, legal resources and job boards. 

Follow our Diversity and Inclusion Career Development page on LinkedIn for up-to date news articles, content and conversation. 


Shocker shout-out to Margarita Baez, Career Development Specialist for spear-heading this effort, researching and gathering content. 

 

Applied Learning Highlight: Sierra Hernandez

Sierra Hernandez, a graphic design major from Wichita, Kan. is interning at GoCreate this summer as a Graphic Design Intern. 

Hernandez assists in the continued development and advancement of the GoCreate communication plan. She also designs quality materials for print (brochures, flyers, posters, etc.), develops social media content, and even helps GoCreate’s members with graphic design related tasks.
 
“GoCreate has given me the opportunity to exercise my design skills in a creative environment. This experience has helped me prepare for client work while also allowing me to express my creativity," said Hernandez.
