Professionals will have the opportunity to share best practices for building manager training and gain additional skills around student supervision and engagement. Students who work in union operations or serve as building managers will further develop
their skill set to perform tasks in their current role on campus and serve them as leaders in the future.

Students will learn customer service and networking skills, taking initiative and ownership, supporting inclusivity, conflict management and compassionate intervention, and building their future. Professionals will learn facilitation and management skills,
critically assessing and influencing inclusivity, empowering student staff to handle the unexpected, and training best practices.
