IDC Coming to the College

$26,000 in IDC is coming to CEAS this year. These funds will rollover until expended. Thank you to our faculty members who generate more than 10% in IDC, which is the threshold for the college receiving IDC. Individual faculty members will be contacted to alert them of specific IDC amounts allocated to them in support of their grants. Much gratitude to our faculty who have generated funding so that the college can support prospective and ongoing research and creative activities.

Flowers to the Strategic Planning Committee and CEAS Community

Everyone should get their flowers – a popular statement in sports these days. The members of the Strategic Planning Committee put together another solid JEDI experience for the college. We talked about our own power in using counter-narratives to challenge stereotypes, bias, racism, heternormativity, and the like. Yet again, all attendees showed amazing courage and vulnerability as they worked through their own experiences. Thank you. Next First Friday Forum is December 2nd, led by Dr. Kate Strom.

Staff Spotlight

I want to acknowledge all of the staff for putting together a warm and engaging Staff Luncheon. Whoever chose the caterer is a saint! The food was awesome. The decorations and set up were on point. The conversations that I had were so engaging and fun. You are an amazing group of staff and you deserve to be centered and celebrated. Please join me in celebrating our awesome staff!

SWEET (Staff Wellness, Enrichment and Engagement Team)

Please take a look at a recent November 8th announcement from President Sandeen, where she announced the formation of S.W.E.E.T. Dr. Sandeen is committing time and resources to boost morale and center our staff in that effort. Look for more actions that come out of that committee.

Quick Acknowledgement

Thanks to the more than half dozen KIN faculty and the three staff members that I incidentally encountered while taking my afternoon walk. I find it energizing to have random conversations that I hope connect us to one another. Also, thanks to Becky Beal for allowing me to visit her upper-division class and just say “hi.” That was pretty cool.

The McNair Scholars Program is BACK!

Congratulations to Jenny O for bringing the McNair Scholars program back to Cal State East Bay! This is an incredibly competitive federal grant to win. And I will say it for Dr. O – Perfect score! This grant along with her work in the Center for Student Research will provide enormous support for our students, especially those that need it the most. And this grant seamlessly connects to other work being done in the college, such as the Kinesiology Research Group. The CSR and McNair Scholars are housed in Robinson Hall. Congratulations!
