1. Deadline to verify your directory entry is tomorrow
To ensure accurate information in the 2007-08 Campus Directory, full-time faculty, administrators and staff are asked to verify their listings for the Campus Directory by noon tomorrow, Aug. 31. Go online and search by name.
If your entry is not accurate or not listed, click the "Report Correction" link on the results page or contact your area’s Campus Directory keeper.
Marquette is using a new data source for the directory, the HR Oracle system. The Campus Directory publication will be delivered in early October.
2. Faculty invited to participate in Honors Program
Opportunities are available for regular and adjunct faculty to participate in the Honors Program curriculum for 2008-2009.
As a university-wide program, students from all colleges participate in the Honors Program and proposals from all disciplines are welcome. Lower level honors seminars involve stipend while upper level seminars involve a course "buy out."
One area of particular need is HOPR 135, the Honors Undergraduate Research Seminar. HOPR 135 is a cross-disciplinary seminar that provides students with a humanities-based critical exposure to university research as a foundation for their own original summer research project.
The deadline for course proposals is Friday, Sept. 21. For more information or a copy of the proposal invitation, contact Maria Cooper.
3. Smart Classrooms added and upgraded
The Smart Classrooms project for summer 2007 has been completed, resulting in seven classrooms that were converted to Smart Classrooms. Sixteen other Smart Classrooms were upgraded, from screen repairs to replacement of all components in a room. Campus infrastructure, such as room security, was also enhanced to support the rooms.
Immediate Smart Classroom support is available at 8-2577. For additional information contact the IT Services Help Desk at 8-7799.
