Building Social Capital on Campus – Train the Trainer Workshop

Join your colleagues for a workshop on Building Social Capital!

Why Attend?

  • If you would like  to teach your students how to gain new skills by developing and maintaining social capital to effectively boost their careers, this training is for you!
  • If you personally would like to learn how to develop and maintain social capital and why now more than ever, such skills are critical to “getting ahead,” this training is for you!

Most people, including our students and ourselves, tend to believe that they know everything they need to know about networking. However, social capital is more than just networking.  Social capital refers to the strong and weak relationships among people who live and work together and the value of those relationships in a world where human capital is as valuable as financial capital.

  • Describe the benefits of social capital
  • Explain how to build and maintain social capital
