15th Annual Faculty Day!!!

Thursday May 7, 11:30 a.m. -- 12:50 p.m.

Engineering Meadow, between Bldg 9 & 17

We're continuing the Faculty Day tradition!  Meet new people and spend some time with old friends, listen to a little music, have lunch, and just take some time to think about and enjoy the reasons we all became faculty:  big ideas, passtionate students, and incredibly smart colleagues.  ALL faculty are warmly invited, full-time and part-time, retired, and new!  Come as you can -- leave when you need to -- and bring a faculty friend.

No need to register, just come on over to the Meadow!

Accessibility FAQ

Thursday May 21, 12:00 -- 12:50 pm, Faculty Center 1-228

What does it mean when you get a letter from the DRC that you have a student with a "print disability?  Why can't the DRC tell you what's really going on with the student?  Why isn't the publisher's assurance that their online content is accessible good enough?  Why are faculty involved at all? Tracee Passeggi and Jimmie Flanagin of the DRC answer these and other questions about faculty's role in making educational materials accessible for students with disabilities.
