UIC Massmail http://www.uic.edu/uic/feeds/massmail.rss Campus announcements en-us Fri, 17 May 2013 18:52:23 -0500 60 UIC Massmail http://www.uic.edu/favicon.png http://www.uic.edu/uic Campus announcements [INFO] Honors College Opportunities for Faculty Dear Colleagues,<br /><br />How often do you get to teach a specialized course on a topic of your choice to a small group of highly motivated students or mentor an outstanding student in your field of interest? The Honors College offers these opportunities and I invite you consider becoming a Faculty Fellow or teaching a 3-credit Honors Core course or 1-credit Honors Seminar for the Honors College.<br /><br />The Honors College is an undergraduate-only college that draws almost 1,800 students from colleges and departments across the campus. We strive to provide a small liberal arts college experience within a large research university by offering small seminar-style classes, hands-on advising, and access to grants and scholarships. Our courses cover a wide range of topics centered in different academic disciplines.<br /><br />Honors Core courses are mandatory, 3-credit hour General Education courses for Honors College freshmen. All have low enrollment limits, are usually taught in a seminar format, and provide both a challenging and intimate learning experience for Honors undergraduates. These are typically compensated with $8,000 paid directly to departments for faculty replacement. Adjunct and emeritus faculty are compensated directly.<br /><br />Honors Seminars are elective, one-credit hour courses open to all Honors students, but usually taken by sophomores and juniors. The seminars are graded on a Satisfactory (S) / Unsatisfactory (U) basis. Teaching an Honors Seminar is an opportunity for you to share a favorite topic with a small class in a one-hour-per-week meeting. It is also a great way to workshop an idea you are considering developing into a course at a later date. Faculty from every UIC College have enjoyed teaching our students in a seminar, many more than once. The compensation is $1,000 per seminar.<br /><br />Faculty Fellows: The Honors College Faculty Fellows program gives high-achieving students and faculty the opportunity to develop a relationship outside the classroom. Beginning with the sophomore year, Honors students are assigned to Honors College Faculty Fellows in their discipline or a related area. Fellows serve as sources of information about the department, the campus, graduate school, or careers, and provide an opportunity for students to receive mentoring from leaders in their fields. Each fellow is asked to meet with their students at least once a semester. The amount of interaction you have above and beyond that is really up to the fellow and the student. We assign each fellow no more than six advisees so that it is a good experience for both fellow and student, and not an undue burden for the fellow. As a Faculty Fellow, your time commitment need not be great, but your impact is huge.<br /><br />I welcome your participation in the Honors curriculum. I appreciate that you have numerous teaching, research, and service commitments, but I hope you will consider working with our Honors students in some capacity. If you are interested, please email Michele McCrillis, Assistant Dean for Curriculum and Outreach Programs, at mmccrill@uic.edu. Feel free to contact her for further information.<br /><br />Best wishes for the new semester,<br /><br />Ralph Keen<br />Dean<br />UIC Honors College<br /> <br /> massmail http://www.uic.edu/uic MassmailFeed Thu, 14 Sep 2017 16:29:39 -0500 Thu, 14 Sep 2017 16:29:39 -0500 [INFO] 2017 Health Ethics Symposium: "Health Care Disputes in the United States: A Physician's Exposition": Free Tickets Available You are invited to our annual event:<br /><br />"Health Care Disputes in the United States: A Physician's Exposition"<br /><br />The 2017 Integritas Health Ethics Symposium<br /><br />5:30 -8:00 PM, Monday, October 16, 2017<br /><br />Buffet Dinner Included<br /><br />UIC Thompson Rooms, Student Center West, 2nd floor<br /><br />828 S.

As of 2015 there were 21.3 million refugees worldwide, and on average 33,972 people are forced to flee their homes every day (UNHCR). While we are experiencing a global refugee crisis, the political climate in the United States (US) is currently in transition towards less friendly refugee policy, including suspended admittance and increased vetting of refugees (Executive Order, 2017). In our current political climate it is more important than ever to learn from refugees’<br />experiences.<br /><br />Higher education may offer refugees a route to economic advancement and improved quality of life in countries of resettlement. It also benefits society in the long-term, as community education has wide-reaching implications. Yet, few refugees attend and graduate from college. There is limited research on refugees in higher education and on what factors can influence the nature of refugee students’ experiences and successes in college.<br /><br />This is your opportunity to help address this question! Emily Bray, a graduate student in the Community and Prevention Research Program in the Psychology Department, is conducting a research study to investigate the experiences of refugee background undergraduate students.<br /><br />You are eligible to participate if you:<br />- Are an undergraduate student at a college or university in Chicago<br />- Are at least 18-years-old<br />- Were born outside of the US<br />- Left your home country because of persecution, war, or violence (legal status not important)<br />- Fluent English speaker<br /><br />Participants will be asked to participate in one audio-recorded interview (taking 1-2 hours).<br /><br />Participants will receive $25 as compensation for their time.<br /><br />Participants are also invited to continue on in the research process with Emily to offer feedback and to work with Emily to share the results from the study and help make beneficial change for other students.<br /><br />If interested, please contact Emily at StudentSuccessUIC@gmail.com or text/call (872) 228-6392 for more information or to see if you are eligible to participate. <br /><br />Eligible students will be interviewed on a first come first serve basis, as only a maximum of 25 students will be able to participate in this study.<br /> massmail http://www.uic.edu/uic MassmailFeed Wed, 13 Sep 2017 16:10:57 -0500 Wed, 13 Sep 2017 16:10:57 -0500 [INFO] Research Participants Wanted DO YOU SMOKE OR VAPE?<br /><br />Our research group is looking for smokers, who have also used e-cigarettes and would be interested in helping us learn more about how, when, and where people use e-cigarettes. We want to learn more about smokers’ experiences with non-cigarette tobacco products and how their use fits into their daily lives.<br /><br />Participants in the study will complete interviews daily on a handheld computer for 7-days on two occasions over a 12-month period; participants will also complete two questionnaires and brief email surveys as part of the study. Study visits will be held at the Institute for Health Research & Policy at UIC.

Megan joined UIC as the Director of the Gender and Sexuality Center in January of 2011. Since then, she has created dynamic programs and leveraged essential resources to make a significant impact on the campus and with many partners throughout Chicago. Her approach to education and culture has expanded campus conversations about LGBTQIA+ issues and created affirming and innovative spaces for learning at all levels.<br /><br />Among her many valuable accomplishments were the organization of the Bayard Rustin Centennial Conference, the hosting of the National Tiny Homes Summit, and the year-long celebration of the GSC's 20th anniversary. She was responsible for moving UIC’s Lavender Graduation ceremony to the National Hellenic Museum and introducing the FlexSpace in BSB as a hub for dialogue and art exhibitions. Her work on policy and education included workshops through the Safe Zone program, introduction of gender affirming health care under CampusCare, the system-wide inclusion of “preferred” names, and the recent inclusive restroom policy. She has served on the Provost’s Diversity Advisory Committee, the Social Justice Initiative Coordinating Committee, and the Chancellor’s Committee for the Status of LGBTQ People and Allies.<br /><br />Megan also served as the Interim Director of the Women’s Leadership and Resource Center from March 2015-August 2016. During that time, she introduced a new permanent position of Education Outreach to support the efforts of the Campus Advocacy Network and led the relocation and design of their new home on Taylor Street. Please join me in thanking Megan for her important service and wishing her well with this new opportunity.<br /> <br />An announcement concerning the leadership transition for the GSC is forthcoming pending board approval.<br /> <br />Thank you,<br /> <br />Charu Thakral, Ph.D.<br />Interim Associate Chancellor and Vice Provost for Diversity<br /> <br /> massmail http://www.uic.edu/uic MassmailFeed Wed, 13 Sep 2017 10:00:13 -0500 Wed, 13 Sep 2017 10:00:13 -0500 [INFO] Accepting TRP 2017-2018 Award Applications Dear Colleagues:<br /><br />The Office of the Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs is pleased to announce the 2017-2018 Teaching Recognition Program (TRP).
