If your students had a chance to tell you what they think about how faculty and academic staff matter to student mental health, what might they say? As a follow-up to a discussion with faculty by leaders of the Active Minds student group at UP, this week’s installment of the mental health series on the Teaching and Learning Community blog offers some thoughts and tips from students on how the way we structure our classes, our advising, and even our office hours matters for student well-being.

- Minimum 3.0 G.P.A.
- Demonstrated financial need
- Junior or senior student standing in the 2018-19 school year

Providing global learning experiences for students in the UP community has taken many forms since the development of the strategic plan, according to Kimberly Ilosvay, education. Under the umbrella of CISGO, all of the professional schools and the College of Arts and Sciences are developing experiential international learning opportunities in partnership with Global ADE, a non-profit organization founded in Portland by Kenny King ’12, ’17, and Kurt Berning when they were Entrepreneur Scholars at UP. Global ADE’s mission is “to strengthen and support education in developing countries by funding programs driven by local community leaders.” If you want to know more, visit their website at this link or consider attending this year’s Global ADE fundraising dinner at UP on Saturday, March 24. The dinner is really fun and also a great way to learn more about this amazing organization. You may also contact members of the executive board of CISGO: Eddie Contreras, Lisa Reed, Kimberly Ilosvay, Mark Kennedy, Casey Shillam, and Laurie McLary.

All research involving human subjects should be submitted to the Institutional Review Board (IRB) for review. The IRB will meet during the second week of each month during Spring semester 2018. Proposals requiring a full board review will be reviewed at the next scheduled meeting if submitted by the end of the prior month. A response to submitted proposals will be sent within a week of the IRB meeting which reviewed the proposal.
A reminder: The IRB does not meet as a full board during June and July. Please plan accordingly and submit any proposals that may require full board review by the end of March, so the proposal may be reviewed at the April IRB meeting and, if revisions are needed, can be resubmitted for review in May.
Proposals should be submitted by emailing the completed Request For Review form and associated documents to firstname.lastname@example.org. Additional information and the Request For Review form can be found on the IRB website.
