coffeebreakTour the Civil Rights Museum
On Saturday, Feb. 16, the office of student engagement will be sponsoring a trip to the International Civil Rights Center & Museum in Greensboro, N.C. We are looking for a chaperone to attend this with the students and to drive the Averett van. We'll leave Averett at 12 p.m. and return at 5 p.m.

Please email Lesley Villarose if you would like to help, lvillarose@averett.edu.


coffeebreakHelp Our Students Stay
Every day, we have students who are at risk of leaving our University for a variety of reasons. Many times these students are simply seeking solutions to issues, assistance, resources, or support and advice in order to persist. Each of us has an opportunity to help our students stay (remember, it takes a village).

For any student you encounter who may be struggling, please contact Dr. Mary Vanderlinden, director of student success, immediately to share the student's name and information (ext. 15754 or mvanderlinden@averett.edu). We can't help a student if we don't know and can't intervene. Thank you for helping our students stay!


coffeebreakLearn to Teach Online
Are you interested in teaching an online course at Averett? Participate in "Best Practices for Facilitating Online Courses," a three-week, asynchronous online seminar facilitated via Moodle by Instructional Technologist Kim McMurtry. Participants will apply Knowles' theory of andragogy to online teaching strategies, explore online learning theories and student-centered teaching, learn to enhance student engagement and build online community and understand how to establish virtual presence in online courses.

Offered monthly, the next seminar begins Feb. 25. Please click here to register today. If you have questions about this seminar or other technology workshops, email Kim at kmcmurtry@averett.edu.


coffeebreakSummer Series of Something
The cold of winter might seem like it will never leave. But summer isn't that far away. And summer means that it's time for the annual Summer Series of Something for staff and faculty.

If you have an idea for this year's series, contact Kathie Tune, director of human resources at ktune@averett.edu or ext. 17106, and share your thoughts.


coffeebreakWho's Who Nominations
Each year faculty and staff are asked to nominate students they feel are eligible to receive the Whos Who Among Students in American Universities & Colleges acknowledgement. This acknowledgement is based on academic ability, community participation, academic and co-curricular leadership, citizenship, service, and future achievement potential. Students who have earned a 3.0 or higher and have 80 or more academic credits are eligible for nomination.

There are two ballots – one for traditional undergraduate and IDEAL students and the other for GPS undergraduates. Instructions are included on the forms. Completed forms must be returned to Bill Woodward, dean of students, by Friday, Feb. 8.

Nominated students will receive an invitation to complete the application for recognition. The completed applications will be reviewed by the Student Life committee for selection to receive this acknowledgement.

Thank you for your participation in selecting students for this annual award.


coffeebreakCoffee, Coffee, Coffee!
