What is Hawk Power Hour?

Hawk Power Hour sessions are designed to be quick learning/refresher sessions that focus on functional skills across campus.

We have partnered with campus Subject-Matter-Experts (SMEs) to help you build your skills and knowledge of key tasks and systems. Using a targeted approach, each session will focus on one main task or system only.

Whether you are new to the task or need a refresher, you are welcome at any of our sessions.
