2 English minors

Happy sunny, autumn day.

I’ve attached two flyers for two different minors that we offer in English. One is a fairly unrestricted English minor, a minor that allows students who are interested in literature and writing to choose pretty freely from most of our coursework (There are a few restrictions listed on the the flyer.).

The other minor is more specifically a writing minor, focusing on a series of writing and rhetoric courses taught in the English Department.

Please get in touch with English Advising if you have any questions at all about our minors, or send your students our way if they are interested. And thank you so much for letting your students know about these options.

Bring the Classroom into the Field with Wildlands Studies: Thailand, Tasmania, Ecuador, Chile!

Greetings from Wildlands ~

We’re excited for fall term to begin. And even more enthused that over 1000 students have joined our field study teams in the past five years. The consistent feedback is that field-based learning brings classroom studies to life. It’s an experiential layer that contributes to a deeper understanding of a student’s major and adds depth and meaning to what they’re learning in the classroom.

This coming year we will teach field courses in 10 locations over 13 countries. Our programs are perfectly suited for undergraduates who want a field study to complete their degree, and know this will improve their ability to get a job and into graduate school.

We invite students to apply for our Winter 2018 programs in Ecuador, Tasmania, Thailand and Chile, or our Spring 2018 programs in Costa Rica/Panama, South Africa and our newest program to Northern Europe (a comparison of landscapes, brown bears, lynx and wolves across Scotland, Norway and Sweden).

Applications are on our website:

Field program information:

Wildlands Studies creates academically rigorous, rich, immersive learning experiences that connect students with the natural world, and complement what they learn in the classroom.

Please share with your students and encourage them to consider a field based program with us.

Best regards, Leslie

Director, Wildlands Studies

DACA Support

As you know, Mayor Murray announced $150,000 in new city funds to support DACA recipients. We’re moving quickly and working with community partners to get the word out about free workshops throughout September to help eligible DACA recipients renew their status before the October 5 deadline announced by the Trump Administration. Can you help us get the word out? Please see the attached flyer we put together “5 Things You Need to Know”. The flyer is available in 10 languages. We also have an infograph for social media in English and Spanish.

List of workshops providing free legal assistance and information can be found here:

Also, we got confirmation last night that the Mexican consulate is offering to pay the $495 DACA renewal fee for Mexican nationals. This is huge because a super majority of DACA recipients are from Mexico.

Univision is giving us and the consulate air time next Wednesday to talk about the free workshops and the scholarship support.

Registration is Open For EPA’s Sixth Annual Campus RainWorks Challenge

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is launching its sixth annual Campus RainWorks Challenge, a design competition that is open to colleges and universities across the country. EPA seeks to engage with students to foster a dialogue about responsible stormwater management, and showcase the environmental, economic, and social benefits of green infrastructure practices.

Registration for the 2017 Challenge is open from September 1st through the 30th. Student teams must register in order to submit their entries by December 15th. Winners will be announced in the Spring of 2018. Each first-place team will earn a student prize of $2,000 to be divided evenly among student team members and a faculty prize of $3,000 to support green infrastructure research or training. Second-place teams will win $1,000 for student teams and a $2,000 faculty prize.

Water pollution associated with stormwater runoff requires infrastructure solutions that are innovative, resilient, and affordable. Today’s scholars are tomorrow’s design professionals. The Campus RainWorks Challenge will harness their creativity and knowledge to jointly advance the agency’s mission to protect public health and water quality.
