Appreciation at Work – Won’t You Participate?

Next Wednesday, February 5, the first session for two classes of Appreciation at Work is scheduled to begin.

Appreciation at Work is based on the book “The 5 Languages of Appreciation in the Workplace” by  Gary Chapman and Paul White.   Each participant will have the opportunity to take the MBA (Motivating By Appreciation) assessment which identifies the participant’s primary and secondary language of appreciation as well as the least preferred language.  This program is not about adding another thing you “have to do” to your already full day.  It is about doing things you already do with a more effective outcome – because you have shown your appreciation in the language most meaningful to those with whom you work.

The class meets for 2 hours/4 times on the following dates: Wednesdays, February 5 & 19, March 5 & 19.  There is one class in the morning from 10:00-Noon and another in the afternoon from 1:00-3:00p.

Registration has been light.  We need at least 8 participants in each class for effective learning.  Classes without the minimum number of participants will be canceled.

Have you considered participating in the Appreciation at Work program?  If you will participate in one of these classes please contact me at pbelcher@nwacc.edu no later than 3:00 p.m. Monday, February 3, to register.  In your e-mail please indicate which class you want to attend – morning or afternoon.

Appreciation at Work

The dates for the next four rounds of Appreciation at Work have been scheduled!  Thus far we have 41 completers of the program and we continue to receive very positive feedback from participants.

Our goal is to have all employees of the College participate in the training, which includes the opportunity for participants to take the MBA (Motivating By Appreciation) inventory which identifies the participant’s primary and secondary language of appreciation as well as their least preferred language.  The purpose of this program is for participants to:

  • understand that they are not being asked to add something else to their already full day
  • learn more about themselves and those with whom they work
  • learn and apply techniques to show appreciation in the language most meaningful to the recipient
  • achieve more effective outcomes when showing appreciation

Each round consists of 4 – 2 hour sessions – held in SCWT A201.

Please be aware:  If you tried to register for one of the Appreciation at Work classes by clicking on the links for the class you are interested in – it did not work.  A big thanks to Connie Bondurant for bringing this to our attention!  Instead, please register by sending an e-mail to Pam Belcher at pbelcher@nwacc.edu with the first day of class and the time you are interested in attending.   You may also call Pam at x2213.  Apologizes for the inconvenience and confusion this has caused.

Bookstore Extended Spring Hours

It’s that time again! Your NWACC Bookstore will be open some extended hours during January to ease with getting textbooks.

Hours for Jan. 6 – 17:

Monday – Thursday: 8:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.

Friday: 8:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.

Closed Saturday and Sunday 

** Please note: The NWACC Bookstore observes the same hours as the College when there is inclement weather. This includes closings, early dismissals, and late openings. ** 

Advising Center Walk-Ins: January 6th – 17th

To further accommodate students who still need to meet with an advisor for Spring classes, the Academic Advising Center at the Main Campus  in Bentonville and our Washington County Center in Springdale will be taking walk-ins January 4th through the 17th from 8am to 4:30pm (from 9am – 3:30pm on Fridays).

Further details are below:

  • Wait times will be the shortest between 8:00 a.m. (9am on Friday) to around 3:30 p.m. We recommend showing up as early as possible.
  • Due to the business of the season, walk-ins should expect some wait time. We will be working diligently to minimize the wait time as much as possible.
  • Don’t forget about the Washington County Center (WCC)! The WCC will be doing walk-ins during the same period as Main Campus. For those in Washington County, this is a more convenient option. You won’t have to drive long distances to get here!
  • The Advising Center will transition back to appointments only starting the week of January 20th.

For questions about this announcement, please contact the advising center at (479) 619-4324 or askyouradvisor@nwacc.edu.

Appreciation at Work

The dates for the next four rounds of Appreciation at Work have been scheduled!  Thus far we have 41 completers of the program and we continue to receive very positive feedback from participants.

Our goal is to have all employees of the College participate in the training, which includes the opportunity for participants to take the MBA (Motivating By Appreciation) inventory which identifies the participant’s primary and secondary language of appreciation as well as their least preferred language.  The purpose of this program is for participants to:

  • understand that they are not being asked to add something else to their already full day
  • learn more about themselves and those with whom they work
  • learn and apply techniques to show appreciation in the language most meaningful to the recipient
  • achieve more effective outcomes when showing appreciation

Each round consists of 4 – 2 hour sessions – held in SCWT A201.

The sessions will be held:

  • Wednesdays, Feb 5, 19, Mar 5 & 19 (all four dates) with two times available from which to choose:  10:00a-Noon OR 1:00-3:00p
  • Wednesdays, Apr 2, 16, 30 & May 14  (all four dates)  from 1:00-3:00p
  • Wednesdays, Apr 9, 23, May 7 & 21 (all four dates)  from 1:00-3:00p

Title III Grant Update

The Title III Institutional Grant is in its final year. Over the last four years, the STARS (Strengthening Academic Resources and Services) grant has been instrumental as an agent of change for the institution, as well as fostering a more unified approach to innovation and improvements that aligns with multiple national best practices for serving underprepared and underserved students targeted in higher education. Each project supported the grant’s objectives focused on college readiness and reinforcing academic interventions. Across the life of the grant both academic and support objectives fall within the scope of the goals for Title III projects. In this last year of the grant, the Title III staff will continue to persevere in doing the work needed to achieve grant objectives and strengthen the institution.

Please see the attached document for an update on projects planned for this year. For more information about the Title III grant or projects, please contact Dr. Patrice Whitley at pwhitley@nwacc.edu or 479-986-4022.
