During the PAIU 2021 Annual Conference, there will be a number of activities for conference attendees to partake in following our conference theme of Kindness: The Key to Our Neighborhood, where we will celebrate the legacy of Fred Rogers.
To help spread our theme of Kindness: The Key to Our Neighborhood, Westmoreland IU is looking to include the voice of students at the PAIU Annual Conference. To showcase our diverse population of students from every IU, we are asking for your involvement in this special project. Please consider participating by submitting a Video message of kindness, following the parameters on the flyer. The “Messages of Kindness” will play throughout the conference to inspire and share the meaning of kindness according to the students we serve. Learn more.
