Guidance for military service students who must miss class Jan. 14
Time: n/a
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
The University is a “Veteran Friendly” institution and recognizes its obligations to our students who serve in the military, including the National Guard. Although there is a University-level expectation that all students will attend their classes at the designated meeting times, syllabi should clearly outline specific attendance policies for each course.

For students who currently serve in the military and will miss classes for short-term military leave or for military-training exercises, we recommend that they contact their instructors as soon as they become aware so that arrangements can be made.

In the rare case that unresolved issues arise due to absences from a course because of service in the military, we recommend that the student first contact the chair of the department through which the course is offered. If the student is still unsatisfied with the result, he or she should speak with the dean of the college and, if necessary later, with the Office of Academic Affairs.

As always, the Military Services Center is open in Simmons Hall 120 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, to assist. Students are also welcome to contact the center by telephone at 330-972-7838 or by e-mail at veterans@uakron.edu for assistance with any issues encountered here at UA.

Big Brain Theory, a team of six girls from North Canton Middle School led by Heidi Cressman, director of UA's Women in Engineering program, has designed an innovative shoe for senior citizens that fastens itself to a wearer's foot at the tap of a toe.

The team won the Research Award for its design of the shoe, known as the BBT Shoe, at the FIRST Lego League (FLL) competition held at UA in January. The young inventors have also filed a provisional patent and are in talks with Reebok regarding material selection and style.

Now, the team is competing with its BBT Shoe in the FLL Global Innovation Competition and it needs your vote in this worldwide competition. The top team will receive $20,000 to progress the winning innovation. Visit FLL Global Innovation online to vote for these young inventors. You can vote once a day until March 1.

Students – Take advantage of Peer Mentoring Services by The Office of Multicultural Development! Feb. 20 - March 7
3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
The Office of Multicultural Development provides a variety of academic programs and services to help support the University’s goals of recruiting and retaining multicultural students, and promoting a culture of student success.

Peer Mentoring Services strives to provide students with a welcoming and supportive environment that models and encourages excellence. Mentoring is a one-on-one relationship between an upperclassman University of Akron student (mentor) and a new first-year student (mentee). This relationship develops over a one-year period of time with clearly defined roles and expectations. The upper-class student (mentor) is knowledgeable, experienced, and willing to share his/her time, energy, and talents with their student mentee. We are proud to accept any willing student in search of becoming a mentor. Through regular meetings and activities, mentors will help their mentees discover the potential within themselves to succeed in their personal, academic, and professional endeavors.

We encourage you to sign-up to become a Peer Mentor today! The Office of Multicultural Development strives to help students develop a sense of belonging to our campus community and an increased level of motivation and pride. This will enhance the overall college experience and, ultimately, prepare students for success in the classroom and beyond.

For more information, two informational Sessions will be held on:
Friday, February 1st from 3:00 - 4:00 pm
Thursday, March 7th from 11:30 am - 12:30 pm
Both meetings will be held in Simmons Hall Room 101

Please consider becoming a part of this great program! Students can sign-up to apply for a Peer Mentoring position online at https://www.uakron.edu/webforms/peer-mentor-app.dot. For questions, contact Autumn Frampton at ext. 8660 or autumn@uakron.edu.

Do you have a meal plan that leaves you with too many meal swipes to use up at the end of the week? Are you unsure of what to get, but don't want to waste you hard earned college funds? Well if so, here is the solution!!!

Serving with Swipes is a non-profit student organization in which you can use your unused meal swipes to donate food to the nearby food pantry. This is a great way to help those who are less fortunate while also learning not to be wasteful.

Just use your extra meal swipes at the Zees stores to purchase nonperishable, canned, or boxed
foods. Drop them in the boxes located in the Zees stores at Exchange, Rob's Cafe, Quaker Square,
or the Student Union.

Serving with Swipes-A great way to give back to the community and help those who are less fortunate.

Berkshire will discuss the ramifications of a universe without gods and free will, where evolution reigns supreme. Is life worth living? How do we derive meaning and purpose in our lives? What does this say about ethics, cooperation, altruism, praise, blame, responsibility, crime, punishment, rehabilitation, and revenge? Should we be optimistic or pessimistic about the future?

August Berkshire is president of Minnesota Atheists and a past vice president of Atheist Alliance International. He has been an atheist activist since 1984 and is the author of numerous pamphlets.

Zach Wahls, a 20 year-old University of Iowa student and son of two mothers, had no idea that his heartfelt testimony before the Iowa Legislature would spread like viral wildfire, and land him on the Ellen DeGeneres Show. After appearing on numerous television programs, and his testimony airing on MSNBC, ABC, CBS, and CNN, Zach has written a book called “My Two Moms” and is now touring college campuses with a game-changing lecture called “What Makes a Family?” He shares a story that has never been told and offers a fresh bold perspective on an always contentious issue: gay marriage.

DURING THE MONTH OF MARCH, ATHLETIC TRAINERS ACROSS AMERICA ARE BEING RECOGNIZED FOR THEIR COMMITMENT TO HELPING PEOPLE PREVENT INJURIES AND STAY HEALTHY AND ACTIVE. ATHLETIC TRAINERS ARE HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONALS. THEY ARE HIGHLY EDUCATED AND DEDICATED TO THE JOB AT HAND. ATHLETIC TRAINERS CAN BE FOUND IN HIGH SCHOOLS AND COLLEGES, CORPORATIONS, PROFESSIONAL SPORTS, THE MILITARY, PERFORMING ARTS AND CLINICS, HOSPITALS AND PHYSICIAN OFFICES.

CELEBRATE NATIONAL ATHLETIC TRAINING MONTH WITH THE CERTIFIED ATHLETIC TRAINERS AND ATHLETIC TRAINING STUDENTS ON CAMPUS BY GETTING TO KNOW MORE ABOUT THE PROFESSION:

• ATHLETIC TRAINERS ARE HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONALS WHO COLLABORATE WITH PHYSICIANS TO OPTIMIZE ACTIVITY AND PARTICIPATION OF PATIENTS.

• ATHLETIC TRAINING ENCOMPASSES THE PREVENTION, DIAGNOSIS, AND INTERVENTION OF EMERGENCY, ACITE AND CHRONIC MEDICAL CONDITIONS.

• ATHLETIC TRAINING IS NOT THE SAME AS PERSONAL TRAINING. CERTIFIED ATHLETIC TRAINERS WORK WITH MORE THAN JUST ATHLETES. THEY CAN BE FOUND JUST ABOUT ANYWHERE THAT PEOPLE ARE PHYSICALLY ACTIVE.

REMEMBER, IF YOU ARE SIDELINED WITH AN INJURY, MAKE SURE YOU CONSULT A CERTIFIED ATHLETIC TRAINER, WHO SPECIALIZES IN THE PREVENTION, ASSESSMENT, TREATMENT AND REHABILITATION OF INJURIES AND ILLNESSES. AVOID INJURY AND STAY ACTIVE WITH AN ATHLETIC TRAINER.
