UMAS y MEChA Potluck ~ Tues. March 1st 6:30pm

UMAS y MEChA will be hosting what we hope will become a yearly event, a potluck (March 1st @ 6:30PM ENVD 134) to have all students and organizations of color unite and learn more about each other. Through this we hope to create one big, strong community. We also hope that students that are not a part of an organization can come and find an organization they can relate to, to be active on campus. I hope all professors of color can come to this event as well so that students get to meet you all. Attached is the invitation for the event and more details! Please forward!!

Thank you.

Health Professions Info Fair ~ Tues & Wed, Feb 22nd & 23rd

Every February, the Pre-Professional Advising Office hosts representatives
from over 50 different health care schools and programs, including
allopathic and osteopathic medical schools, dental schools, PA programs,
PT programs, nursing programs, optometry programs, MD/PhD programs, and
more. We offer events spanning two days so that students can meet with the
admissions representatives from these schools and programs.

On the evening of Tuesday, Feb. 22, from 6:15 pm to 8:30 pm, we will host
panel discussions with the representatives, so that students can meet in a
small-group atmosphere to learn more about topics such as admissions and
student life. These groups will meet in various rooms on the 2nd and 3rd
floors of the UMC. Volunteers will be present to direct attendees to the
correct rooms.

On Wednesday, Feb. 23, between 10am and 2pm, the Glen Miller Ballroom will
be filled with representatives of these health care programs. Please
encourage students to attend and to explore all the programs that appeal
to them.

Fri. April 1st: Due date for Sociology Department Internship Class application

For Sociology Majors:

Applications for the Sociology Department Internship class are due FRIDAY, APRIL 1, 2011 by 5p in Leith Lombas’s mailbox in the copy room next to Ketchum 219.

The application and information about the internship class are available at http://sobek.colorado.edu/SOC/Undergrad/internship.html

Typically, the Fall semester receives applications from more students than can be enrolled in the course (enrollment is capped at 35). Priority is given to:

– those who have secured an internship already
– graduating seniors
– those with a higher GPA & who have completed more sociology courses.

Review of the applications will begin on April 8, 2011. Leith will email you to inform you if you’ve been enrolled in the class. If your registration time arrives before Leith emails you, please register for as many credits as you need (you can drop a class to make room for the internship class if you need to).

Mon. March 28th: Due date for the Boulder Police Department’s, Victim Advocate Volunteer Team application

The Boulder Police Department is currently accepting applications to become a part of the volunteer Victim Advocate team. BPD Advocates work closely with police officers, providing support and assistance to community members who have become victims of crimes, accidents, natural disasters or other critical events. Boulder Police Advocates help over 400 people a year. They respond to fires where people have lost their homes or irreplaceable possessions; They sit with grieving family members who have just lost a loved one; and they assist victims of assault, robbery and theft. They help people re-establish their support systems, provide valuable information and referrals, lend a supportive shoulder and a listening ear.

A required 40 hour training to prepare volunteers to become Victim Advocates is provided. The training, which starts April 6th, is a great learning experience that covers a wide variety of subjects. Crisis intervention skills, community resources, active listening and information about emotional responses to grief and trauma are just a few of the topics discussed.

If interested in this valuable opportunity or becoming a part of this volunteer service, contact Susan Townley at Townleys@bouldercolorado.gov or 303.441.4048. You can also visit the Boulder Police
Department website.
