1.    Ph.D. Committee work (attachment) – message from Dean Antczak

The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences values the work of those serving our students’ education needs beyond GVSU.  If you are serving on a Ph.D. committee and your department is willing to support your endeavors, I will match department commitment up to $250. These funds will support the travel costs associated with service on this committee. This is a one-time commitment per doctoral committee. Please use the attached document to notify us of your assignment and outline the process for re-imbursement.

2. This and That from Mary Schutten

 

This 1: Continued thanks for providing feedback regarding MyPath programming. Please be sure to get the data for AY 2010-11 to Jerry Montag by the end of April. [Please continue to work on the preceding years, 2003-2010, so that this can be launched in August, 2010]

This 2: Please feel free to share the strategic plan alignment table with others in your department. Suggestions to improve the document should be directed to Mary Schutten schutmar@gvsu.edu by April 30.

 

That: CLAS has been asked by the Provost's Office to data gather the service learning, internship, field experience, and/or co-curricular efforts. Your faculty was sent a request from Associate Dean Schutten for this information. Please encourage your faculty to reply in a timely manner [Course #, # of students, # hours/student] so that your unit's good work is represented. This data is used by the Provost's Office to document the University's efforts in regard to high impact practices and apply for the President's Honor Roll.
