Academic Affairs Newsletter, Week of May 5

Lots of Opportunities for Funding to Support Your Reach and Teaching:

1. Water Resources Conference:

Registration is now open for the Water Resources and Policy Initiatives (WRPI) Annual Conference, taking place June 16-17 at San Francisco State University. Below is the registration link. Registrations are limited to three persons per campus (WRPI can reimburse trip expenses for these three individuals) and they will be accepted on a first come-first served basis. WRPI will also have about twenty-five student poster presentations, so please encourage students working on water-related projects to register as well.

2. Affordable Learning Solutions $$ (create free course materials for your students)

ATTACHED you will find a "call for proposals" for the latest opportunities in the Affordable Learning Solutions program.  CSUEB has received a grant for 2014-2015.  Part of that grant provides incentives for you to create an alternative learning solution for your course(s).  Please read the instructions carefully as they have changed slightly from two years ago.

If you have questions, please contact

3. $$Chancellor's Office Initiatives$$

Funds exist for you to participate in a CSU-wide learning community (esp. in Chemistry, Biology, Microeconomics, Finance)  OR to redesign a course.  Looking for ways to teach large classes better?  Check out:

4. Service Learning RFP

Hoping to put service learning into your course or create a new course centered around service learning?  Funds are available, please contact:  (deadline May 30)

5. THANK YOU, again, to all faculty and staff  who mentored students, helped with arrangements, or who participated as jurors last Friday and Saturday for the CSU Student Research Competition.  We had an excellent event and visitors really seemed to enjoy their time at East Bay.

Have a great week.
