Engaging students for success, from orientation through graduation. massmail http://www.uic.edu/uic MassmailFeed Tue, 01 Sep 2015 17:51:05 -0500 Tue, 01 Sep 2015 17:51:05 -0500 [INFO] Capacity and Privilege in International Education Colleagues:<br /><br />The Study Abroad Office recently hosted a workshop for college advisors: “Strengthening Capacity and Partnership for Enhanced Student Success through International Education Pedagogy, Curriculum Integration, and Process”. At the end of the presentation, an advisor asked: “Do you have a limit on capacity of the number of students who go abroad?” Soon after, a faculty member asked: “Can you talk about the role privilege plays in study abroad?” <br /><br />While the first question was intended to understand the dynamics of why so few students study abroad [the UIC cohort follows the national statistic of < 2% of the undergraduate population], the second was about humanizing the data. And that data is a significant challenge to much of the mythology about study abroad that too often is a deterrent to internationalization efforts that need to include our students. <br /><br />In AY 2014-2015, 212 UIC students were registered to study abroad. Participation of under-represented students by race/ethnicity continued to increase and reached 49% of the total cohort. There was a dramatic increase in Pell eligible students to 48% of the total – double what it was two years ago, and 43% identified as 1st generation college students. Additionally, UIC students accessed over $350,000 in scholarship and grant funding ranging in individual awards from $250 to $12,000 making study abroad tuition/fee costs highly competitive to those on-campus. $59,000 of the award total was from the nationally competitive Gilman International Scholarship. All of these markers are counter-intuitive to the mythologies about access to study abroad. These cohort demographics are not duplicated at any Big Ten institution.<br /><br />Curriculum integration efforts are also increasingly successful with 45% of credit earned abroad approved by colleges, faculty, and/or advisors to be applied toward the student’s major or minor. This coincides nicely with Study Abroad Office data reports that clearly indicate that study abroad does not interfere with retention/graduation, i.e. those students who study abroad have graduation rates at almost double the rate of those who don’t. Study Abroad is a high impact activity.<br /><br />We have just ended our first week of advising for the Fall term: just over 50 students….and the demographic is as strong as ever: 66% underrepresented, 59% 1st generation, 79% receive financial aid, and they are from 6 colleges across 11 majors. And they come with diverse worldviews, cultural attributes, and experience: 58% speak a language other than English at home [including Cantonese, Arabic, Romanian, Norwegian, Vietnamese, Tagalog, Croatian, Spanish, and Polish]; 48% have travelled outside of the US.<br /><br />Capacity? There is no limit on the horizon but we need those who spend the most hours in a day with students – in the classroom, in advising sessions, or through mentoring - to engage with students in a way that makes an international academic experience a valuable and accessible option.<br /><br />Privilege? Many groups of individuals have had historically low rates of participation in study abroad, including those from underrepresented minority groups; first generation college attendees; recent immigrants; students with disabilities; those who identify as LGBTQ; students from low income backgrounds; and even students who study in particular fields, such as the sciences, IT, engineering, mathematics, health professions or other technical areas. All of these attributes are substantial elements of the UIC undergraduate demographic and the university’s study abroad cohort.<br /><br />Thank you in advance for helping students understand the personal, academic, and career benefits of an international experience as part of their four year plan.<br /><br />Regards<br /><br />Chris Deegan<br />Executive Director<br />Study Abroad<br />deegan@uic.edu <br /> massmail http://www.uic.edu/uic MassmailFeed Tue, 01 Sep 2015 15:45:13 -0500 Tue, 01 Sep 2015 15:45:13 -0500 [INFO] Job Announcement - Visiting Clinical Research Coordinator - Medicine Department of Medicine<br />Infectious Diseases<br /><br />Visiting Clinical Research Coordinator<br />The Department of Medicine at the University of Illinois at Chicago is seeking to fill a Visiting Clinical Research Coordinator position.

UIC URBAN FORUM - REMAKING THE URBAN SOCIAL CONTRACT: Health, Energy and the Environment - September 17, 2015 2015 UIC URBAN FORUM<br /><br />REMAKING THE URBAN SOCIAL CONTRACT: Health, Energy and the Environment<br />Thursday, September 17, 2015<br />9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.<br /><br />UIC Forum<br />725 W. Roosevelt Road<br />Chicago, IL<br /><br />The politically tumultuous 1960s and early 1970s in the U.S. resulted in national, state and local governments promulgating policies designed to address a host of societal issues, including a degrading environment (e.g., National Environmental Policy Act of 1969), unaffordable health care for the poor and elderly (e.g., Medicaid and Medicare in 1965), and energy conservation (e.g., fuel efficiency standards in 1975). Although a broad commitment to meet these societal issues created a broad social contract among the people, the contract is becoming unraveled and contested even as important advances in these three areas have been undertaken in the past decade. The challenges to the old social compact are most visibly played out in the nation’s metropolitan regions, which generate 85% of the gross domestic product. Attacks on government regulation of health, energy and environment issues coupled with the recent contraction of the economy and challenges to the validity of sc ie ntific inquiry have created a political situation in which metropolitan regions and cities are grappling again with redefining, revising and remaking the social contract that prevailed for nearly half a century. With particular emphasis on the social contracts and political agreements on health, energy and environmental policies of the last 40-50 years, the 2015 UIC Urban Forum focuses on the substantive and philosophical shifts in the urban social contract and examines the remaking of urban social contracts today. <br /><br />Admission is complimentary for all Chicago-area teachers, faculty and students with valid ID. Tickets are $25 for the general public. Registration required for all guests. Lunch will be provided. <br /><br />Visit www.uicurbanforum.org for registration information, agenda and speaker updates. <br /> massmail http://www.uic.edu/uic MassmailFeed Tue, 01 Sep 2015 14:39:33 -0500 Tue, 01 Sep 2015 14:39:33 -0500 [INFO] GenEds To Shape Tomorrow Inherit yesterday.
