The first submission of the BCaP Report Deck is due this week! Frank Center tutors will be running two workshops this week to help you do your best. The workshops will take place on Tuesday, March 22 and Wednesday, March 23, both in W401 PBB at 2 PM. There will be lots of time for individual questions. The same material will be covered on both days. See you there!

Tutors Wanted!

The Frank Center is still recruiting tutors for 2022-2023! Tutors get course and RISE credit and a scholarship that begins in their second semester of tutoring. The experience looks great on a resume, too, and many of our graduating tutors note that Center experience helped differentiate them from other candidates in internship and job interviews. Plus, it’s fun! Contact meredith-ringel-ensley@uiowa.edu by February 28.

Tutors Wanted – Deadline Extended!

Do you enjoy helping other students? Did you think the BCaP report deck was kind of…fun? Apply to be a Frank Center consultant! Consultants tutor other Tippie students in writing, presentation, and design assignments. They get course and RISE credit, as well as a scholarship after the first semester. For more information and to apply, contact meredith-ringel-ensley@uiowa.edu. Deadline extended until March 4!
