2. Protecting Confidentiality of Student Work – Mary Schutten

As we begin another semester, a reminder to safeguard student work is appropriate. While it seems efficient to place graded student work in the halls, this practice breaches confidentiality procedures. Please remember that all student work should be returned in a manner that ensures confidentiality and reduces the likelihood of student theft of the graded work of other students.

 

3. Grant Writing Workshops (attachment)

The Office of Sponsored Programs is offering Grant Writing Workshops with David Bauer for GVSU faculty and staff. Please see the attached registration form, and share this information with anyone who may be interested in attending.
