A note of appreciation from Associate Dean Windsor

Thank you, 8th Annual Open House and collaborating on recruiting Class of 2015 a great success

On behalf of the Office of Undergraduate Programs, I am writing to express our sincere gratitude and appreciation for your assistance with our 8th Annual Open House for admitted CLA students and their families.  

On Saturday, March 26th we had 743 students and 1388 family members on campus for us to showcase first-hand the College of Liberal Arts experience. Your willingness to participate and volunteer your time, talent, and expertise was critical to our success.  The feedback from student and their families was extremely positive.  They praised us for our organization of the event, programming options, and the opportunity to meet and talk with faculty members.
Your participation and outreach helped make Open House a big success.  Thank you for collaborating with us to recruit the Class of 2015.

Jennifer Windsor
Associate Dean for Undergraduate Programs

Vacation Donation Program; policy, procedure, appendix, forms

The Administrative Policy: Vacation Donation Program for CS and Union-Represented Staff has been revised.  The policy and procedures were rewritten to improve the clarity of the provisions and to make the process easier to understand and follow.  No substantive changes were made.  New Q&A's were added to guide interpretation and application.  An appendix was added to provide "Immediate Family" definitions as applicable to sick leave for civil service and union-represented staff in accord with this policy.  The forms were revised as well.

Please familiarize yourself with this policy version and share this information with others as appropriate within your campus, college or administrative unit. 

This revised policy is available through the OHR or the University Policy web sites.

How to avoid death by PowerPoint: Tips for giving better presentations

Wednesday, April 27, 2011
Networking and registration: 3 pm
Program: 3:30 - 4:30 pm
3-180 Keller Hall

Nowadays, just about everyone with access to a computer is creating presentation slides using PowerPoint, Keynote or similar software. But is the message being lost in the mix of templates, animations, logos, clipart and way too much text? Basic design principles can be employed to create clearer, more powerful presentations. Todd Reubold is the director of communications and public affairs at the University of Minnesota's Institute on the Environment.

Over the years he has studied presentation design and worked with a range of topical experts to help them become more effective and engaging communicators. During this program Todd will discuss a range of design principles and best practices aimed at building better presentations.

Members: Free to UMCF members.
Non-Members: $10.00
