Ad Astra Cares for Hungry Students with Food Packaging Event
Ad Astra staff attended the 11th Annual Universities Fighting World Hunger Summit in Columbia, Missouri to gather with students, instructors, and leaders from all over the world to discuss strategies to mitigate food insecurity. Nearly 100 of those students spent two hours on the Friday night of the Summit with Ad Astra and The Outreach Program assembling dry materials to make up packets of macaroni and cheese. These meals were then donated to a local campus food pantry, Tiger Pantry. It was a fun and practical opportunity to engage with students and lead them in caring for students who struggle with hunger issues.
Ad Astra Regional Summits – This time is devoted to our valued clients — time to learn, explore, strategize, and brainstorm with their Ad Astra team and other higher education professionals who face similar work challenges every single day.
Designed to be a smaller gathering than our annual Users’ Conference, Aspire, Ad Astra’s Regional Summits are an excellent opportunity to receive one-on-one training; attend sessions; connect with Ad Astra staff; network with other higher education professionals, and develop scheduling best practices that advance student success.
