The Council on Undergraduate Research will be waiving their membership fee and allowing free access to all of their services until April 30th.  Setup your account here 

CUR, a membership organization that works to increase the undergraduate research capacity for faculty and students at campuses across the country, are aiming to provide greater assistance to both students and faculty during this difficult time. The organization provides an online community for support and collaboration. The membership also grants access to many journals and online resources 

This access comes at a great time in the semester, as final papers and projects are right around the corner. For students, the CUR membership could provide a plethora of resources to complete these assignments. It could even assist in finding a journal to submit a paper to for publishing.   

Be sure to take advantage of this opportunity 

Science Education and Civic Engagement: An International Journal (SECEIJ) is calling for submissions to be part of a special issue honoring the life and legacy of Dr. David Ferguson, Distinguished Service Professor and Provost’s Scholar at Stony Brook University, who died unexpectedly in July 2019. David was one of the first individuals involved with the National Science Foundation-funded SENCER (Science Education for New Civic Engagements and Responsibilities) Project and became a senior leader in that community. In addition to chairing the SENCER Leadership Fellows program, David was a long-time member of the editorial advisory board for SECEIJ.

In keeping with the themes that were important to David during his career, we invite submissions on the following topics:

  • diversity and inclusive excellence in STEM
  • engineering for social good
  • faculty development/leadership
  • applied math and quantitative literacy

Submission guidelines can be found at http://new.seceij.net/submission-guidelines/. Please note that for this special issue, submissions do not need to fall into one of the categories described in the guidelines. All submissions should be sent to Marcy Dubroff, Managing Editor, at mdubroff@fandm.edu. The deadline for submissions to this special issue is April 15. Questions about this special issue can be directed to either of SECEIJ’s co-editors in chief, Trace Jordan (trace.jordan@nyu.edu) or Matt Fisher (matt.fisher@stvincent.edu).

The Community Engagement and the Arts Faculty Learning Community (FLC) is nearing the end of its calendar year of work, after having met consistently for the year 

The many members of the FLC, led by Leslie Jacobson, Professor Emerita of Theatre, have centered much of their discussion on how to facilitate greater community engaged scholarship in the arts at GW. More recently, they have focused on learning about better ways to ‘tell our story’ through assessment methods that accurately capture the depth of the work done through community engaged arts. They are currently in the process of determining a way to share their work with the GW community.  

If you are interested in getting involved with a FLC that will be convening for the coming year, check out more information here
