Autumn Core Programs
The UW Graduate School’s Core Programs sends out relevant events, resources and opportunities directly to current graduate students and postdoctoral fellows bi-weekly. (GPA/GPCs: No need to re-post to your students, unless you want to emphasize a particular item!)

Custom-built tools for UW students!

In an effort to help students accomplish their work, we’re spreading the word about three mobile apps built by UW-IT in response to student needs: SpaceScout, MyUW Mobile, and Notify.UW.

  • SpaceScout helps students find campus study spaces that meet specific criteria, and has just released a new feature–real-time display of computer availability. No more waiting around for a computer!
  • MyUW Mobile gives students on-the-go access to information they need most: class schedule and location, textbook info, and husky card balances.
  • Notify.UW lets students sign up to be notified (via email or text) about openings in specific courses.

You can help students learn about these apps by distributing the text below in an email message or announcement on your department’s web page. Traffic on the apps is especially heavy at the start of the quarter, as students adjust to new schedules, add and drop classes, and find their way around campus. Your “just-in-time” reminder can be a great help to students.

If you know of other advisers who might be willing to help us get the word out, please feel free to forward this email.

We appreciate your assistance, and encourage you to check out the apps as well. Please let us know if you have any questions.

Many thanks,

Tenure Track Assistant Professor: Environmental Studies/Science

The Environmental Studies Department at The College of Saint Benedict/Saint John’s University invites applications for a tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant Professor to begin in fall 2014. Ph.D. in interdisciplinary environmental science, Earth system science, or a related field is preferred (ABD considered). Undergraduate teaching experience required. Preference will be given to candidates with expertise in applied, interdisciplinary environmental science emphasizing Earth systems, environmental geology, or a related geoscience field. Teaching assignments will include shared responsibility for an introductory environmental science course based in Earth system science and an intermediate topical environmental science course, developing a new upper-division environmental science course in the candidate’s area of expertise, and other interdisciplinary courses supporting the Environmental Studies major as needed. Applicants should be willing to participate in field-based courses, supervise undergraduate research, integrate campus and local sustainability issues into their teaching, and contribute to the institutions’ Common Curriculum.

Saint John’s University, a liberal arts college for men, and the College of Saint Benedict, a liberal arts college for women, are located four miles apart in Central Minnesota just outside St. Cloud and 70 miles from Minneapolis. Both are Catholic colleges in the Benedictine tradition, which emphasize quality teaching and a commitment to intercultural learning. Together, the College of Saint Benedict and Saint John’s University offer a common undergraduate curriculum, identical degree requirements, and a single academic calendar. The colleges offer the distinct benefit of two nationally recognized Catholic, undergraduate institutions and one exceptional education. For further information, see http://www.csbsju.edu.
