Upcoming Events

Professional Stress & Burnout

Mon., Sept. 27 @ 5:15 p.m.

We are excited to welcome Sherri Hill, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, to the Rowan Young Professionals for a networking evening and presentation. Sherri will help our young professionals with learning to identify and address the impacts of work life. After almost two years of virtual/remote work, we could all probably use this presentation!

The presentation will provide insight to recognizing signs of stress and how it can impact your professional growth and personal happiness. The key points discussed will help young professionals implement ways to reduce their stress level, institute boundaries, and create a healthy work life balance.

The event is being graciously hosted by fellow young professional Vincia Miller, Director of Alumni Affairs for Livingstone College. Refreshments will be provided.

Arrive any time after 5:15 p.m. and the presentation will begin at 6 p.m. Networking before and after the presentation.

DIRECTIONS:  When you arrive to the campus, you will be required to check in at the main gate, intersection of Institute Street and West Monroe Street. Tell the security guard you are there for the Young Professionals event and please have a valid driver's license (even if you are carpooling). They will also take your temperature. The event will be held in the J.W. Hood Building. At the gate they will direct you to the building and parking.
