Dr. Arnett conducts team-building exercises with IMPACT group

Gearing up for the spring semester, Dr. Harold Arnett, Cowley College's vice president of academic affairs, conducted a workshop on team-building with employees in the IMPACT Student Support Services TRIO program Thursday morning in the Underground.

Dr. Arnett used experiential learning activities to help the group get to know each other better.

“I love this kind of learning approach and mining insights out of the group,” Dr. Arnett said.

The group took part in a blindfolded jigsaw puzzle activity, a tarp challenge, and a Houdini escape challenge.

“There were problem solving elements in each activity, so communication was a critical piece in every challenge,” Dr. Arnett said.

Individuals that took part in the team-building exercises were, Roxanna James, Dianne Flickinger, Kim Martin, Mike Rosales, and Loretta Waldroupe.

The IMPACT Student Support Services TRIO program is an academic program designed to help students graduate from Cowley College and/or transfer to a four-year university. The program offers a variety of free services to help students be successful and meet their educational goals.
