It's a truism that we must groan when we hear the words "committee work". Here's another point of view: working on committees can be a great opportunity to meet faculty across the campus while providing an opportunity to make a difference on campus policies and practices.
Susan Fritz, Associate Vice Chancellor for IANR and Interim Dean, Agricultural Research Division, Pat Dussault, Charles Bessey Professor and former chair of Chemistry, and Dave Sellmeyer, George Holmes Distinguished Professor and Director of the Nebraska Center for Materials and Nanoscience will discuss ways, means and benefits of campus service.

At a recent conference on undergraduate education (Reinvention Center, http://www7.miami.edu/ftp/ricenter/), the results of a survey of currently enrolled undergraduates reveals a prevalent, new attitude: “I pay my teacher’s salary through my tuition, therefore, s/he is my employee”.
There’s just no end of surprises and challenges from students as we teach intro to upper-level courses. Come and share experiences with Ted Pardy of the School of Biological Sciences, Gary Bailey of the School of Natural Resources, and Helen Moore of Sociology help you solve knotty problems with teaching. Ted hosts a regular mentoring session for faculty on teaching in SBS; Gary is coordinator for core courses in CASNR, and Helen will share a vast experience on the gender piece of being a college teacher.

Storm clouds Rising Above the Gathering Storm, Revisited: Rapidly Approaching Category 5 was released by the National Academies Press in Fall, 2010. It addresses the shortfall in the number of U.S. students in the science and engineering pipeline and a decline in overall science literacy in the U.S. Many more students arrive on campus interested in a STEM major than graduate with a STEM degree.
Cheryl Bailey, Assistant Professor of Biochemistry, and Thomas "Jack" Morris, Distinguished Professor of Biological Sciences, were appointed a National Academies Education Fellow in the Life Sciences for the 2010-2011 academic year. This honor was bestowed by virtue of their selection to and enthusiastic participation in the 2010 National Academies Summer Institute on Undergraduate Education in Biology that occurred in June, 2010 at the University of Wisconsin, Madison.
