SA IN NEED OF ADVISOR
The Student Association has traditionally had a faculty or staff advisor to assist them in a variety of ways. SA has been unable to locate one thus far this year. If interested contact Paula M. Knudson, at 726-6278 or by email email@example.com.
The Center for Community and Regional Research
(CCRR) has again received funding this year from the Center for Urban
and Regional Affairs (CURA) in the Twin Cities. Therefore, proposals are
invited for cooperative research projects involving community-based public
sector or private non-profit agencies. Research topics must fit into a
broadly defined Community and Regional Studies curriculum and provide
opportunities for student involvement. Eligible projects typically focus
on topics originating in the social sciences and humanities (especially
urban studies, geography, sociology, political science, women's studies,
history, American Indian studies, economics, anthropology, psychology,
social work and related disciplines), although projects originating in
the natural sciences are also fundable.
Each project must involve students and applications must be made by a faculty or staff supervisor from UMD. Additional details pertaining to kinds of projects eligible for funding, as well as instructions for preparing proposals, can be obtained by contacting the Center's Director, Lawrence M. Knopp, Jr., at firstname.lastname@example.org or by visiting the Center's website at http://www.d.umn.edu/ccrr.
PIZZA WITH THE PROF SEMINAR SERIES
The UMD Honors Program invites faculty of the university to present their research and have a pizza lunch with UMD Honors students in the Spring 2005 semester. Talks should be 20-30 minutes, with 15-20 minutes for questions and answers afterwards. Please contact Beth Matson at email@example.com or 726-8548 to schedule a time this coming semester.
