Details of Event:
This semester, Joe Pratt will be conducting a 6 week lecture series on life skills at the University of Connecticut. Graduating from Stevens Institute of Technology in 1966 with High Honors, Pratt spent the next 33 years with Sikorsky Aircraft. His responsibilities there included substantiating the structural integrity and aerodynamic performance of helicopters. Responding to the tragedy of aircraft accidents, he transitioned from test to research in diagnostics and health / usage monitoring systems, eventually directing the group responsible for the development of advanced diagnostic and usage monitoring systems. He also helped develop the profit center in focused aftermarket maintenance support for improved aircraft availability and safety. Married for 36 years and the father of two daughters with careers in music education and fashion design, Pratt has made it his mission since retirement to pass on the wisdom of his years through pastoral work and counseling college students.
The series will cover how to manage time, health, energy, money, relationships, and communication. The focus will be on skills that students need to be successful in the academic and working worlds, but may not necessarily gain through coursework. Pratt has prepared over 110 pages of material as the basis for the lectures which will be distributed to attendees in their choice of print or PDF. Sessions will occur every Thursday from February 7th through March 14th at 6:30PM in Austin Building (formerly known as CLAS) Room 162. See the attached flyer for specific weekly topics.
