As the semester draws to a close, faculty are asked to take a moment to reflect on freshmen and sophomores who might be strong candidates for University-endorsed awards, such as Fulbright grants. The Office of Undergraduate Scholarly Engagement’s Talent Identification Program (T.I.P.) uses faculty to help identify high achieving students early in their careers, marking them as potential candidates for various fellowships, grants, and scholarships. Once identified, undergraduate scholarly engagement personnel will meet and work with these students to identify goals for their upcoming years, identify potential scholarship opportunities, and assist in applying for appropriate awards.

The School of Education will present “Neuroeducation: The Road to Inclusive Practices,” a full-day conference dedicated to answering the question, “How do we learn?” through a neuroeducation lens, on Saturday, May 16, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., in Mago Hunt Center. All are welcome; a $15 fee includes lunch and the opportunity to receive .5 CEU graduate credit.
For the past six years, the School of Education has been providing neuroeducation classes designed to triangulate the sciences of language, neuroscience, and cognitive psychology into a translational science for effective inclusive practices. Participants of this conference will receive an overview of how students learn based on these sciences and then, throughout the day, they will select from numerous break-out sessions conducted by educators who are on the road to changing their practices to become more effective inclusive educators. Speakers will include educators from elementary, middle and secondary content education; special educators; support personnel; Catholic and public education; alternative education; and administration.
