Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to attend the whole day?
No. The event is designed with various activities spread throughout the day to allow attendees to arrive and depart as needed. We realize that many DePaul programs hold Friday events. Some attendees in past years have slipped out for an early afternoon meeting and returned to the Summit while barely missing a beat.
Is the event for staff or administrators only?
Absolutely not! While we encourage university staff members and administrators to attend, the focus of the event is on the peer tutors, advisors, and mentors at DePaul. We invite any office involved in tutoring, advising, or mentoring to encourage their student staff to attend, whether the professional staff is attending or not.
Does it cost anything to attend?
No. The event is free to all attendees thanks to funding provided by the Summit partners, the Division of Student Affairs and the Office of Academic Affairs.
Will I have a chance to share information about my program?
Yes! After all, that's what the event is for. The day is filled with opportunities for networking and information sharing, including the round robin sessions. Breakfast and lunch is also a great way to network with tutors and mentors from other offices .
What is a round robin session?
Round robins are interactive 20 minute "mini-workshops" similar to conference roundtable sessions. You choose a topic related to the theme and your work and facilitate participants' discussion and reflection.
Does my office have to prepare a round robin in order to attend?
No. While every office is encouraged to submit a proposal for a round robin session, this is not required in order to participate in the event. The day is set up to allow every office to share their experiences and ideas whether they host one of these sessions or not.
