Morgan (UIC East Campus). Our next WoRD (Women’s Reading and Discussion) Club selection is: Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking, by Susan Cain. You are welcome to bring your lunch.<br /><br />WoRD Flyer: http://www.uic.edu/depts/ccsw/committee/flyers/WoRDNovember2014.pdf<br />(If your browser brings a copy of a previous selection, just copy and paste the link above on the address bar of your internet browser)<br /><br />Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking will be available for purchase for at a 20% discount at the UIC Bookstore on East Campus and UIC Medical Bookstore on West Campus. The book can also be obtained at the UIC Library through the library’s I-Share catalog—contact the library for more details!<br /><br />In Quiet, author Susan Cain charts the rise of the Extrovert Ideal in the twentieth century and explores its far-reaching effects. She questions the dominant values of American business culture, where forced collaboration can stand in the way of innovation, and where the leadership potential of introverts is often overlooked. She draws on cutting-edge research in psychology and neuroscience to reveal the surprising differences between extroverts and introverts. She also introduces successful introverts, and offers advice on everything from how to better negotiate differences in introvert-extrovert relationships to how to empower an introverted child to when it makes sense to be a “pretend extrovert.” Quiet strives to change how we see introverts and, equally important, how introverts see themselves. <br />(From http://www.thepowerofintroverts.com/about-the-book/)<br /><br />Susan Cain is the co-founder of Quiet Revolution LLC. Her writing has appeared in the The New York Times, The Atlantic, The Wall Street Journal, and many other publications. She received Harvard Law School’s Celebration Award for Thought Leadership, the Toastmasters International Golden Gavel Award for Communication and Leadership, and was named one of the world’s top 50 Leadership and Management Experts by Inc. Magazine. <br /><br />The WoRD (Women’s Reading and Discussion) Club was created by members of the UIC Chancellor’s Committee on the Status of Women (CCSW) for the purpose of reading and discussing books related to employment and professional/personal growth and development, particularly as they relate to women.

Mermelstein, PhD, as the Chancellor's Committee on the Status of Women’s 2014 Woman of the Year. Dr. Mermelstein is a full Professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of Illinois at Chicago, since being recruited as an Assistant Professor in 1987. In 2008, Dr. Mermelstein was offered the responsibility of Director of the Institute for Health Research and Policy. Through Dr. Mermelstein's leadership, the Institute for Health Research and Policy is the largest research institute of the University of Illinois at Chicago and in 2014 the Institute was awarded more than $18 million in external research funding, ranking it among the top UIC campus departments for research productivity. Dr. Mermelstein has dedicated her research career to women's health, with her main focus falling broadly in the area of tobacco use, with studies ranging from longitudinal examinations of the etiology of youth smoking to cessation interventions for adult smokers.<br /><br />The Woman of the Year award was established in 1992, this annual award honors a UIC woman who has consistently worked on women's issues beyond the call of duty and who is an exemplary role model. The award criteria include providing service to women at UIC while on the job, responding to issues affecting women, and offering service to women through voluntarism and public support of women's programs.<br /><br />The Woman of the Year Reception will be held on Thursday, March 5, 2015, 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., Student Center West.<br /><br /><br />EXHILARATING WOMEN’S BASKETBALL PRACTICE<br /><br />CCSW members and their families were invited by Coach Regina Miller to the Women’s Basketball Practice on Saturday, October 11, as the team prepared for the upcoming season. Meeting the players, a high school visitor and her mother, and a picture with Coach Miller were among the highlights of that day. The exhilarating part of the day was, indeed, team fundamentals, practices and drills.<br /><br />As we observed the various drills, you could feel your own body move with the ball and players. Their energy and concentration seem to flow to those watching in the stands. We came away with a new appreciation for the stamina and focus needed to perform at a championship level. I think each visitor acquired a better understanding of the mechanics and strategies involved in the game of basketball which will make watching the season’s opener on Friday, November 14, at the Pavilion that much more interesting. Overall, what a delightful and exhilarating day at the Practice Center.<br /><br /><br />RECRUITING MEMBERS AND LEADERS TO CCSW<br /><br />Are you interested in issues that affect women on campus? Would you like to meet new people, promote women's professional development at UIC, and expand your leadership skills? Consider joining the CCSW!

If you prefer not to receive massmail postings update your preferences: https://www.uic.edu/htbin/cgiwrap-auth/bin/news_options <br /> massmail http://www.uic.edu/uic MassmailFeed Thu, 30 Oct 2014 15:36:27 -0500 Thu, 30 Oct 2014 15:36:27 -0500 Vote for your Right to Vote! GET OUT THE VOTE!<br /><br />The 2014 general elections will be held on Tuesday, November 4. Polls are open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. on November 4, and you must vote at your polling place. Early voting ends November 2. In order to find your polling place for voting, visit http://www.elections.il.gov/VotingInformation/RegistrationLookup.aspx <br /><br />Most Illinois voters are not required to show ID in order to vote, but if you registered by mail without an ID then you need to bring two of the following forms of identification with you to the polls: Illinois state ID, driver’s license, photo ID, current utility bill, current bank statement, recent government document, paycheck with your name and address, or a current college ID card. Also, first time voters may register to vote at their polling place on Election Day with these same two valid forms of ID. <br /><br /><br />WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO VOTE?<br /><br />We encourage you to become engaged and informed citizens. It is important to be active and engaged because your vote matters. By voting, you are voicing your opinion on important issues that affect your community. It is also important to be informed and to know your rights as an American citizen. Know your rights, fight for your rights, and vote to keep your rights.<br /><br /><br />HAVE YOU HEARD ABOUT VOTER IDS AND VOTER ID LAWS?<br /><br />Voter ID laws require voters to present certain forms of identification to allow them to vote at the polls on Election Day.<br /><br />These forms of identification are often times expensive and not always available to everyone, especially to those citizens of lower socioeconomic class and/or members of certain racial or ethnic groups. Therefore, voter ID laws result in the disenfranchisement of people who do not have the means of obtaining those specific forms of ID. Moreover, the majority of those people without the forms of ID are people of color and/or lower socioeconomic status. Voter ID laws may prevent these individuals from exercising their constitutional right to vote.<br /><br /><br />DO YOU KNOW ABOUT THE VOTER DISCRIMINATION MEASURE? <br /><br />On this year’s ballot, there is a proposed amendment to the Illinois Constitution that will prevent the passage of any legislation that would deny anyone their right to vote in an election based on race, color, ethnicity, status as a member of a language minority, sex, sexual orientation, or income. This legislation would prohibit voter ID laws, which have been passed in the thirteen U.S. states. In Texas, for example, nearly 600,000 voters have been disenfranchised because of the state’s voter ID laws. If voter ID laws were to be passed in Illinois, nearly one in every ten voters could be denied their constitutional right to vote. Illinois does not currently require voter IDs, and passing this amendment would keep it that way. Voting yes for this amendment will prevent any discriminatory voter legislation from ever being passed in the state of Illinois whereas a no vote leaves the state constitution as is, with no explicit language to protect all Illinois voters from dis crimination or voter suppression. <br /><br />It is important that you vote on this discrimination measure because doing so will help others retain their right to vote. <br /><br /><br />IF YOU SEE OR EXPERIENCE ANY DISCRIMINATION AT THE POLLS THIS ELECTION DAY, YOU MAY REPORT TO THE CIVIL RIGHTS DIVISION OF THE UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE AT 1-800-253-3931.<br /><br /><br />This message has been created by four students as an Intergroup Collaborative Project for the Honors 140: Dialogue Race and Gender curriculum. Honors 140 establishes a framework for meaningful dialogue while exploring social group identity and multiple identities. It also opens our minds up to others’ experiences and deepens our understanding toward them. Through Honors 140, we explore the differences/commonalities between groups as well as the concepts of privilege. We identify conflicts between different identities and examine controversial issues dealing with intergroup relationships. Lastly, gaining empowerment and personal growth are the main goals that Honors 140 wishes to accomplish. The purpose of our Intergroup Collaborative Project is to further educate our peers about a topic relating to race/racism or gender/sexism. Our personal project is to encourage people to vote, which prevents them from being discriminated against themselves.<br /><br /><br />FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT VOTER IDS, VISIT: <br />http://billmoyers.com/episode/fight-right-vote/<br />http://igpa.uillinois.edu/ontheissues/voterIDlaws<br /><br />FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT VOTING AND YOUR RIGHTS, VISIT:<br />http://www.chicagoelections.com/en/voting.html<br />http://uofi.uic.edu/cms/4043/voter_guide.pdf<br />http://www.elections.state.il.us/infoforvoters.aspx<br />http://chicagovotes.com/blog/#1439<br /><br /><br />REMEMBER TO VOTE AND KNOW YOUR RIGHTS! <br /> massmail http://www.uic.edu/uic MassmailFeed Thu, 30 Oct 2014 15:19:51 -0500 Thu, 30 Oct 2014 15:19:51 -0500 New GPPA Partnership with Chicago Kent College of Law The Honors College at the University of Illinois at Chicago is pleased to announce a partnership with the Chicago-Kent College of Law that will provide guaranteed seats for UIC graduates in the law school. This Guaranteed Professional Program Admission initiative (GPPA) will join 23 other GPPA programs in 11 colleges that allow new first year students to be admitted to UIC with guaranteed admission to one of several graduate and professional degree programs. For the first time, however, the GPPA Chicago-Kent College of Law program will also extend admission to current undergraduate students. <br /><br />Specifically, starting in the 2014-2015 academic year, the Honors College’s Guaranteed Professional Program Admission initiative will offer two options for entrance to the program: <br /><br />1) Prospective incoming freshmen will be able to apply through the Common Application; <br />2) Freshmen students completing their second semester at UIC, who meet the minimum eligibility requirements, will be able to apply starting in summer 2015. <br />3) This year only, we are allowing UIC sophomores currently in their 3rd semester of study at UIC to apply by December 1, 2014 at https://uofi.uic.edu/fb/sec/1081171<br /><br />Students in the program must complete a bachelor’s degree at UIC prior to entering the Chicago-Kent College of Law. <br /><br />The IIT Chicago-Kent College of Law’s history dates to 1888. The law school developed from the merger of the Chicago College of Law and the Kent College of Law. A 1969 merger made it part of the Illinois Institute of Technology. The law school has earned many accolades including being ranked 6th nationally in Trial Advocacy and 10th in Intellectual Property by U.S. News & World Report (March 2014). It is also considered a Best Value private law school by the National Jurist (October 2013), and its faculty ranks 52nd in the nation based on scholarly impact (Sisk et al., 2012). The bar passage rate for Chicago-Kent law graduates in 2013 was 93%.<br /><br />We are excited to offer this prestigious pathway to a career in law to our students. Special thanks to those at UIC and Kent who championed the formation of this partnership:<br /><br />Bette L. Bottoms, Dean, UIC Honors College<br />Harold Krent, Dean, IIT Chicago-Kent College of Law<br />Lon Kaufman, UIC Vice President for Health Affairs<br />Tula Georgopoulos, Scholarship Specialist, Office of Special Scholarship Programs, UIC Honors College<br />Beth Powers, Director, Office of Special Scholarship Programs, UIC Honors College<br />Nicole Vilches, Assistant Dean, IIT Chicago-Kent College of Law <br />Josephine Volpe, Interim Director, UIC Undergraduate Success Center <br /><br />Additional requirements for the program apply.
