coffeebreakBreakfast for Alumni Employees
The alumni office and Liberty Mutual are hosting a breakfast for Averett alumni who work at the University on Friday, April 27 from 8-9:30 a.m. in Jut's Café. This is a chance to recognize those who serve Averett as both an employee and an alumnus.


coffeebreakFaculty Survey of Student Engagement
Recently, a number of our students participated in a national survey (NSSE) that asked them about their college experience, how much time they spend studying and the types of interactions they have with faculty.

To gain information on the faculty perspective on these issues, Averett will be participating in the Faculty Survey of Student Engagement (FSSE), which is designed to measure faculty expectations for student engagement.

The web version of the survey will be available at www.fsse.org in a few weeks. For more information about FSSE, including copies of the surveys, please visit www.fsse.iub.edu.


coffeebreakAwareness Walk to End Violence
April is awareness month for elder abuse, sexual assault and child abuse. In an effort to bring awareness to these causes, the YWCA of Central Virginia and HAVEN of the Dan River Region will hold an Awareness Walk to End Violence this Saturday, April 28 from 10 a.m.-12 p.m. The walk will start downtown in front of the Courthouse and up Main Street to Averett where walkers will rest and have a snack before heading back to the courthouse.

Anyone interested in walking or volunteering during the event should contact Karen Ingram, Danville/Pittsylvania County domestic violence victim's advocate, at kingramywca@yahoo.com.
