2021 Meeting of the Minds Training Series

Meeting of the Minds is a regional prevention and health education conference for college and university peer educators, their advisors, administrators, and campus and community law enforcement. However, due to COVID-19, we are unable to gather in person. Therefore, this year Partners in Prevention is sponsoring a nine week training series, featuring 5 tracks, a leadership weekend for peer educators and their advisors, and a Fraternity and Sorority Life Leadership Day.

On behalf of the Missouri PIP staff and MOM planning committee, who have worked tirelessly to make this training series a reality, we are thrilled that you chose to join us in this virtual format. This year’s virtual training series format includes a variety of great breakout sessions designed to help you learn more about effective prevention strategies and health, wellness, and campus safety topics. We are also excited to provide two focused, virtual leadership experiences for professionals and students – our Fraternity and Sorority Life Leadership Day on March 12 and the Peer Education Leadership Weekend April 9-10. Our goal is for this format to be flexible and fit your schedule.

We hope you enjoy looking at the great lineup of sessions on our website and in our conference platform. Each breakout session is identified by “tracks”. We have organized our tracks to occur on the same weekdays throughout the nine-weeks. This is meant to be a guide as you select breakout sessions- you are welcome to attend as many or as few sessions live as you wish. Most live sessions will be recorded and placed in the conference platform for later viewing. We also have some great on-demand content of pre-recorded sessions.

Once again we are excited to be joined by the Central College Health Association for their annual training. We welcome those attendees joining us from CCHA and hope that you enjoy your Meeting of the Minds experience! We are also pleased to be partnering with the Missouri Eliminate Tobacco Use project for our Alcohol, Tobacco, and Other Drug track in the training series.

We look forward to the future when we can gather in person to share in professional development and training. Mark your calendars for our 2022 event: April 7-9 in Kansas City, MO!
