You're invited! Please join us on Tuesday, September 26th at 12pm (ET) as Missy Gutkowski (Assistant Dean for Experiential Learning) and Bethany Slear (Program Director, Experiential Learning) showcase their career readiness initiative, BisonReady.

BisonReady is the app that keeps students on track! The BisonReady platform encourages participation in co-curricular activities that are crucial to their personal and professional development. With the BisonReady mobile app, students can choose opportunities and plan their experiences based on the competencies they want to build. The app makes it easy to track their development from orientation through graduation.

Students can earn badges by completing high-impact practices and attending events. Activities include attending a university lecture, studying abroad, or holding leadership positions. BisonReady is equipping students with the necessary skills, tools, and experiences to prepare them for the competitive job market.

This event will provide:
- Overview of the platform and the BisonReady competencies.
- A breakdown of the program structure and how students complete it.
- Key strategies behind the BisonReady design and growing student engagement rate.
- A realtime Q&A portion with Missy and Bethany!

There is no cost to attend, and a post-event recording will be sent out to all who register.
