CommUnity University learning series

CommUnity University

Lakota is proud to offer the Family & Parent CommUnity University hosted by Lakota’s Outreach, Diversity & Inclusion (LODI) department, in partnership with Miami University Voice of America.

The monthly learning series, led by expert Lakota staff and community partners, is designed to provide training and resources to parents, relatives, staff, community members and others who play a role in helping educate our youth. 
While one of the goals is to share information and expert guidance on different issues affecting our youth, it’s also about building stronger relationships and encouraging open dialogue.

The initiative builds upon Lakota’s long-standing efforts to increase parent involvement in our school communities and empower parents to be active in their child’s growth and development. 

Sessions range from mental health and digital competency to diversity training, state testing and health and wellness. The curriculum has been shaped by a review committee represented by parents, staff, local employers and agencies, as well as other community partners. Interviews with other similar efforts nationally and a survey offered to the Lakota community also helped develop the learning series.

Each monthly session will be live streamed and includes breakfast, compliments of Overhead Doors, and free childcare provided by student volunteers. The sessions are free and open to the public, but registration is encouraged.
