Volunteers Sought for Color Run

It's getting close to the beginning of the Fall Semester and the Keweenaw Color Run committee welcomes all students and faculty alike back to Michigan Tech.

As we enter into a new school year, we remind everyone that in less than a month, Sept. 18, hundreds of people will finish the 2nd Annual Keweenaw Color Run.

Want to help make this event awesome? Well, then you're in luck. The 2nd Annual Keweenaw Color Run is looking for volunteers.

You can sign up to volunteer online. Volunteers will be provided with free food and beverages the day of the event and a free event T-shirt.

The positions are diverse and people of all ages and backgrounds are welcome to register to volunteer. This event is only made possible by our community's support, not only by participating in the event but by participating behind the scenes and helping everything run smoothly.

Thank you and we hope to see you on Sunday, Sept. 18 at the 2nd Annual Keweenaw Color Run.

Continuous Improvement Connection

It's Orientation Week. With students flocking to Michigan Tech from all over the globe, this can be a chaotic time.

Fortunately, the Office of Continuous Improvement has the resources to help you find ways to manage the increased activity.

Shoot us an email to learn more about tools and methods to get organized and prioritize your to-do list, check out our blog, or come check out a book from our lean library to gain another perspective.

"Our Iceberg is Melting" by John Kotter is a story about how to change and succeed under any circumstance.

With chaos engulfing campus this book will help in guiding the way along a path with many factors that are causing havoc.
