PIU at the Small Business Expo

SAMSUNGYesterday afternoon and evening we went down to the Hyatt Regency to represent PIU at the Guam Chamber of Commerce Small Business Expo. We saw several friends there and were able to make many new friends. Our booth was right next to our friends and PIU partners at Triple J Enterprises. Nino, Samantha, Jamie and I had a good chance to raise community awareness about PIU and how we can help with some of the businesses’ educational needs. As a small private college we have some flexibility in how we can work to meet needs in the business and wider community. This was a SAMSUNGgood opportunity to get that word out.

There was interest in all our programs, including the biblical and religious training. Samantha was able to distribute several of our brochures and student applications and, even, one faculty application packet.  We especially focused on our experience in working with remedial English and acculturation training for people coming to the island for employment or higher education. We also mentioned our non-academic lifelong learning programs. We made a lot of good contacts and I am hoping that we will be able to work with many of our new friends.
