Serve as a Hornet Helper!

We are looking for dedicated individuals and organizations to serve as Hornet Helpers as our students move into the Residence Halls on August 16th.  This is a great opportunity to help first-year students get settled in their new home at Emporia State and assist returning residents who are coming together as a community once again.

As a Hornet Helper, you will welcome students and their families, assist residents with moving items into the residence halls, and answer any questions they may have about life as a Hornet.  We also need Team Leaders to serve as “go to” people for volunteers and ensure that shifts run smoothly.

We will need assistance for three shifts:

7:15 a.m. to 9:45 p.m. at the Towers Complex

9:45 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Towers Complex

11:30 a.m. to 1:45 p.m. at Morse Hall

If you would like to serve as a Hornet Helper or Team Leader, please contact Amanda Meek in the Department of Residential Life at 620-341-5264 or ameek@emporia.edu.  You may sign up for multiple shifts if you’d like!

Thank you for playing a role in giving our students a warm Emporia State welcome!

Maura Cullen: Taking Adversity out of Diversity

August 18, 2013 at 1:00 PM until 2:30 PM

Posted under: Diversity/Cultural

 

We are incredibly lucky at Emporia State to have Dr. Maura Cullen speak at Orientation. This event will be open the entire Emporia Community free of charge!

Dr. Cullen has been referred to as being the best there is at simplifying the complex issues of diversity in an entertaining and educational manner. Since 1987, Dr. Cullen has been capturing the hearts and minds of people, with her dynamic seminars and speaking engagements throughout the United States, Canada and Australia. Maura is considered one of the foremost authorities on issues of diversity and leadership having worked with over 500 organizations with audiences ranging from 8 to 8,000 people.

Participants continually remark that Maura is “down to earth” and genuine, and though some may have initially resisted attending her program, they ended up enjoying it immensely. As one participant noted, “I was required to go to Maura’s session and without question I will never see things the same way again. It is a defining moment in my life.” She offers participants concrete ideas to make immediate and significant changes in their lives.

Below are some of the many accolades she has received from people across the country:


"Maura is one of the most outstanding diversity educators I have ever witnessed. I call Maura the Lily Tomlin or Whoopi Goldberg of the diversity circuit. You will laugh one minute and be teary-eyed the next. Your school or organization will be forever changed because of her presence."

-Dr. Andrea C. Kandel Executive Director, National Conference for Community and Justice

 

“By far this is the most enjoyable diversity training I have EVER attended!” 

- Andy Weinkauf, Resident Assistant, University of Wisconsin-Platteville, WI

 

“I have been doing diversity work for over 20 years. There is no one that I respect more, or would recommend more highly as a trainer, facilitator or speaker than Maura Cullen. Her style, skills and knowledge make her one of the best in the business.”

- Rev. Dr. Jamie Washington, President, The Washington Consulting Group
