President Johnson emphasizes major achievements and the path ahead for the University
Nevada Day Observed Friday, Oct. 27
No classes; campus closed
In the wake of Charlottesville, members of this University have engaged in heartfelt public comment and honest conversations about bigoted behavior on our campus. Administrators, faculty and students have come together to create a wide variety of programs to raise awareness and educate ourselves as we strive to be a more equitable and inclusive university. One effort is a film series on diverse topics related to race, social justice, gender identity and class. The next film is “Get Out” which will be shown Wednesday evening, Oct. 25, 7:30 p.m. in the third floor theatre at the Joe Crowley Student Union. Paul Mitchell will lead a discussion about issues raised in the film. All faculty and students are welcome. Additional films: • The Interview – Wednesday, Nov. 8, 7:30 p.m. in the JCSU Theatre; • Lion – Wednesday, Dec. 6, 7:30 p.m. in the JCSU Theatre.
International Opportunities for Faculty & Staff With USAC
The University and USAC invite qualified faculty and staff to apply for a Faculty International Development Award (FIDA) and/or a Visiting Professorship (VP). Both programs provide an excellent opportunity for professional development while experiencing a USAC study abroad program first-hand. The FIDA program invites faculty and staff to apply for a grant to participate in a USAC summer program like a student while the Visiting Professor program invites faculty to submit proposals for teaching abroad in one of USAC’s summer or semester programs abroad. To learn more and ask any questions you may have on either program, an info session is offered during International Education Week (IEW) next month. Stay tuned for further announcements on the details. IN the meantime, to request an application, please contact the following: -FIDA application: firstname.lastname@example.org; -VP application: email@example.com.
