Writing Center Announces New Online Editing Chat Sessions!

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks
Emily Weber, Aleda Johnson, and Jenna Enright thought it might be helpful to let freshman (and upper class students) know about the new online tutoring sessions being offered by the IUP Writing Center.  HC students very rarely take advantage of the Writing Center, most likely because they are either too busy or embarrassed to seek help.  Online tutoring makes it very convenient and provides a safe and supportive context for this interaction - your home.  Now there are no excuses for not getting help writing your papers.  There is some lead time required for tutors to read and edit your paper before your online appointment, so check out the process at:

First Wednesday Freshman Workshop Tomorrow

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
The first of ten Wednesday Freshman Workshops will run from 11am to 12 pm in the Great Hall tomorrow. The rationale for this program is simple, "What should you know in your first semester about CHC and IUP to use college well over the next four years?"

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

An overview of tomorrow's session can be found at

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.

IUP Majors Fair

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

We 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.

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).
