Each workshop and the assignment that grows out of it will count for 3 service hours. Attending all sessions and assignments will equal 30 community service hours this semester, half of what is required.
Tomorrow's session is an overview of the CHC Social Service program. Though social service is required of all who receive a CHC or IUP scholarship, it is essential for every student to commit to something larger than themselves in college. This program will acquaint you with all the resources to find sustained meaningful service at IUP and in the Indiana community.
You can access the fall schedule for the workshops at http://www.iup.edu/honors/page.aspx?id=96931.

I realize some of you will not be able to attend due to a science lab, ROTC or a music practice. Please let me know if you cannot make it tomorrow due to a permanent schedule conflict on Wednesdays and I'll schedule a meeting to discuss how to proceed.
Let me know if you have questions.

Not sure what law school you want to go to? Want to find out more about what law school admissions officials are looking for in applicants? Then you'll want to make time to stop by IUP's 24th Annual Law School Fair. Admissions representatives from several law schools are coming to IUP to talk about their schools and to answer your questions.
The presentation is open to all faculty, staff, and students and the community. Attendance vouchers will be available and refreshments will be served.
are pleased to announce that the annual IUP
MAJORS FAIR (sponsored by the Advising and Testing Center/Major and
Career Exploration Center, 214 Pratt Hall and co-sponsored by the Career
Development Center) will be held on Thursday,
October 7, 2010 - from 6:30-8:30 pm in the Crimson Event Center (Folger Hall). This is a "walk-in" event - you do
not have to arrive right at 6:30. You can come as late as 8:00 pm and
still have time to ask questions of the representatives.
The Majors Fair is ideal for students wanting a "one stop" to explore majors, double majors, minors, graduate school majors, etc. MOST of our undergraduate departments are represented at the Fair. Because our faculty/departments make such a tremendous effort to support this "one stop" approach to allowing students to explore majors.
Activities in celebration of International Education Week (IEW) will take place the week of October 4-8, 2010. These activities are sponsored by IUP's Office of International Education in collaboration with the Lively Arts Series.
All events are free unless otherwise noted and open to the public. Vouchers will be available for classes encouraged to attend events.
International Education Week is a joint national initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education.
We are pleased to announce the National Security Education Program African Languages Initiative. This initiative will offer Boren Fellowship applicants the opportunity to deepen their knowledge of, and proficiency in, African languages and cultures. We seek applicants who have had exposure to Bambara, Swahili, Yoruba, or Zulu, and can demonstrate proficiency of novice-high or above.
Specifically, this pilot initiative will provide the opportunity for Fellows to enhance their Boren Fellowship with additional language study in the United States and overseas. Beginning summer 2011, Fellows will have the opportunity to enroll in domestic university-based summer intensive courses in the targeted languages. The summer U.S. programs will be followed by intensive language and culture study programs during the fall semester at specific language centers in Mali (Bambara), Tanzania (Swahili), Nigeria (Yoruba), and South Africa (Zulu).
