Local certified life coaches Rock and Junice Rockman, owners of Champions Life Coaching, will conduct the workshop.

“They are going to focus on how to build and maintain positive relationships,” said Caroline Bizot, assistant director of multicultural recruitment and retention.

The workshop will address such areas as maximizing academic and professional relationships, attracting the relationships you want and understanding different personality types.

Bizot explained that the Scholars Academy is a student organization supported by the Office of Intercultural and Diversity Affairs. Academy members meet weekly throughout the year, participating in workshops on topics such as financial planning, applying for internships and etiquette.

“So our program really focuses on building our students up as leaders and building them up as young professionals,” Bizot said.
