Are you interested in social issues and social justice activism? Do you want more skills for workplace involvement? More understanding of workplace and global changes? Are you a union representative? A community activist? A person concerned with solving social problems? Are you older and thinking of returning to college but afraid of the workload, schedule or expectations?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, this is your opportunity to visit the Labor Studies and Swingshift College departments at IU Northwest during the annual Open House on Thursday, August 21 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Lindenwood Hall, room 120. Food and other refreshments will be provided. Faculty and staff will be on hand to explain available degree programs, answer questions, discuss career opportunities and provide individual academic counseling.
The Division of Labor Studies offers students a wide variety of degree options, training programs and opportunities to attend international conferences. The Swingshift College program offers classes that are repeated twice in one day to accommodate the shift worker and others with non-traditional schedules. Students can earn an associate or bachelorís of science degree in labor studies, general studies or obtain many of the basic courses required by other undergraduate programs.
The college provides special counseling and assistance on basic study skills, and also videotapes classes for home use. Interested persons can also learn more about the union education program, which holds short courses on a broad range of union-related skills and issues, and will design programs especially for your group or local union.
