Conference Information

Dear Higher Education Colleague:

The Institute on College Student Values will host its 16th annual meeting on February 2-4, 2006, at Florida State University. Over the past two decades, the Institute has become a national gathering for higher education administrators, teachers, researchers, and students who are especially interested in how colleges and universities encourage moral, civic, and spiritual development. The 2006 Institute will examine how colleges and universities promote the holistic student through the theme of “Finding Wholeness: Students Search for Meaning and Purpose in College.”

Featured speakers and presenters include Marcia Baxter-Magolda, professor of Education Leadership at Miami University; Rebecca Chopp, president of Colgate University; Alan Wolfe, professor of Political Science and director of the Boisi Center for Religion and American Public Life at Boston College; and Scotty McLennan, Jr., dean of Religious Life at Stanford University. Arthur Chickering and Liesa Stamm will serve as faculty in residence. Invited presenters include Peter Laurence, co-director of Education as Transformation, Bill McDonald, VP Student Affairs at Presbyterian College; and Jennifer Lindholm, director of Project on Spirituality. More information about the program and registration along with the Institute brochure are available at www.Collegevalues.org/Institute.cfm.

The Institute will examine college programs that strive to assist students as they search for wholeness. Spirituality, leadership, involvement, and scholarship are just a few ways a student can work towards this goal. Speakers will discuss the roles that values and spirituality play in this success and why spirituality and authenticity are so important. As in the past, the 2006 Institute will provide participants with information on the character development initiatives of leading colleges and universities, current research on moral, spiritual and civic learning, and opportunities to learn and share with colleagues from across the United States.

Should you have questions about the 2006 Institute on College Student Values, please contact us at values@admin.fsu.edu.

Hello all,

There is a need for mental health volunteers now and for the foreseeable future in Mississippi. This information is from discussions I have had with a number of people in Mississippi over the past several weeks. They very much appreciate us helping them in their coordination efforts. The Mississippi Department of Mental Health and representatives from State Boards of Psychology, social work, counseling, and community mental health agencies (in consultation with federal agencies and national
groups) have coordinated to be able to better use much-needed volunteers. The first several weeks after Katrina, there were often a surplus of mental health (and other) volunteers at certain sites with nothing to do and no volunteers at others. There is a lot to do and this should allow us all to help. You do not have to be licensed, nor do you have to commit to a longer period.

Below is the information for those of you who might want to volunteer in Mississippi. Most of the need right now is at Disaster Recovery Centers in the coastal areas. At this point State of Mississippi has no funds to help with your expenses. You also need to be self-sustaining in terms of places to stay, etc. There is no minimum time commitment.

Individuals do not need to be licensed but should have some background in mental health...masters students in counseling or doctoral counseling psychology, etc. students are more than welcome. There is much to be done including outreach and giving basic information as well as counseling.

If anyone wants to volunteer, contact Kris Jones, LMSW (see message below). If you are licensed, they would also like you to contact the appropriate licensing board first (Kris or someone at Project Recovery can direct you).
