The other position will be more general with the assistant helping with undergraduate programming, conducting research, and carrying out special projects.

Ideally all candidates would have some working knowledge of and interest in multicultural affairs.

Hi all

Dr. Linda Subich and I are pleased to announce that the Collaborative Program in Counseling Psychology at the University of Akron is hosting the 2007 Great Lakes Conference!

This year, with our theme "Counseling Psychology: State of the Art and Science", we highlight the cutting edge of counseling psychology science, practice, and training, as well as the benefits to be found in collaboration. For example, (and as specified in more detail on the attached Call for Programs page) we will be giving priority to symposia proposals that involve persons from more than one Great Lakes institution, and that comprehensively cover the cutting edge of science, practice, and training aspects within a particular domain of interest in counseling psychology (e.g., vocational psychology). Of course, as always, we welcome student presentations in all venues!

Please join us for this special 20th annual Great Lakes conference on March 30 - 31, 2007! Details on registration, accomodations, and the conference schedule will soon be available from our conference website; we are finalizing two potential pre-conference workshops prior to posting our pages to the web. Please feel free to contact the conference coordinators, Drs. Loreto Prieto (lprieto@uakron.edu) and Linda Subich (subich@uakron.edu), for answers to any and all conference related questions.

Thanks!

CSPP Announcements

Dear Colleagues,

The College Multicultural and Diversity Committee would like to announce a new college-wide grant opportunity. The Multicultural and Diversity Grant is designed to provide travel and registration fee support for multicultural and diversity-related training and research opportunities for members of the College of Education and Human Development. The purpose of the grant is to encourage faculty, staff, and students to take advantage of professional development, training, and research opportunities that will have an immediate and direct impact on the college's multicultural and diversity efforts.

Information about applying for the grant can be found at http://intranet.education.umn.edu/Committees/MCDC/. As you can see, grant awards may be made for up to $1,000, but we anticipate that most grants will be much smaller. Priority will be given to individuals who either a) have limited access to departmental or collegiate resources or, b) have increased the reach of these funds by obtaining matching funds from their departments or centers.

We would like to invite you to apply for the grant if it meets your travel or training needs. Please alert your students to this opportunity as well.

If you have questions, please e-mail me at turne047@umn.edu.

Sincerely,
Sherri Turner
Chair, CEHD Multicultural and Diversity Committee
