End of the quarter

To participants leaving the program at the end of the quarter (fall, winter, or spring) - you need to:
1. Choose a date during weeks 9 and 10 to present your work in class and email us at nasprogram@evergreen.edu
2. Write an academic essay in the 3rd person describing your work and addressing the credits you have worked for and email it to
nasprogram@evergreen.edu as soon as possible and better yet before evaluation week (this exit document does not have a formal format and is not
a hard copy, it is just an email message).
3. Write your formal self-evaluation and take it to Registration during evaluation week. (As a courtesy - send a copy to nasprogram@evergreen.edu)
4. Write your formal faculty/program evaluation and take it to Pam Udovich in 1st. Floor Lab I during evaluation week.

We suggest all participants who plan to stay in the program the entire year, to write an academic essay in the 3rd person at the end of every quarter and
email it to us as a report; then at the end of the year, you can just use the three pieces for your final essay or write an entire new piece for the whole year. This is a strong recommendation for those participants who have chosen not to post their responses to the 4 questions for the program list or for the web crossing site.

When a participant does not respond or meet the end of quarter deadlines, we honor the decision to receive no credit for the quarter(s) and it is filed with the registrar.

If you need to have a conference with your Team or with one of your faculty, we are available every Tuesday or Thursday from 1pm on. If your schedule
doesn’t fit this, email us and make an appointment.

Participants whose projects will extend over the summer, can register in the Heritage: Summerworks program in May. They will just present a report in
Spring and make a final presentation at the end of the summer quarter. They will need to submit their exit documents at the end of the spring for the
regular year, and at the end of the summer for their summer quarter work.

If you have questions email us to nasprogram@evergreen.edu

Your Team

Subject: [heritage] Aniversary of the Tlatelolco Massacre

Hey everybody,

On October 2, 1968 the Tlatelolco Massacre took place in Mexico City where
an estimated 200-300 students and innocent civilians were killed while
protesting for human rights. Of Course the governments death toll estimate
is dramatically less. One claim of the Mexican government made was that a
protestor shot the first bullet, but when video footage is reviewed, it
shows the first shot came from an official government building.

Two days ago was the anniversary of the Massacre. I would just like
everyone to be aware and to remember these people.

I watched an amazing documentary called "Tlatelolco Las Claves de la
Masacre" subtitles included.

For a brief explanation visit:

Another good site for alternative Mexican news that is in Spanish, but you
can have google translate it is.


Type in Tlatelolco Massacre.

Subject: Fall 2006 Media Services Update

Media Services staff would like to welcome you to another exciting year at Evergreen!

This year is even more special since all the Media Services areas and folks have moved into our newly remodeled Library spaces.  There is a brand new Multimedia Lab, Digital Imaging Studio, as well new B&W/Color Darkrooms, new spaces for Electronic Media, Photo Services, Media Loan and the Sound and Image Library.  For locations, phone number, hours of operation, etc. please go to our newly updated web site at:   http://www.evergreen.edu/media/home.htm

The Library building also has several new AV classrooms -- these will be coming completely on-line in the next few weeks, so please bear with us while we work out the final details and get all the equipment up and running.  For AV classroom questions and support, please call Electronic Media at x6270.   You can also call that number for Lecture Hall support.  Zena Vergara (x5517) is still your main contact person for SEM II classroom support.

We're very happy to have Kathryn Ford back at Media Loan.  She returns as our Media Loan Front Desk Supervisor.  Angela Goldenstar is now in charge of evening Media Loan support as well as the college's Advanced Production Services (3 chip video/16mm cameras, animation support, etc.)   Dave Cramton has moved into the Electronic Media Producer Video position.   

Ryan Richardson moved up from Colorado to join our "ever developing" Photo Services team.  Ryan is the new lab manager and IT support go to person. Martin Kane has left us for greener pastures in North Carolina, so Jon Huey, will be our temporary campus photographer until a permanent hire can be made. (Please see the e-mail that Steve Davis sent out regarding what's new in Photo Services and Rob Rensel's e-mail with your IT Quick Reference Guide for more fun updates.)

Media workshop/resource requests for your programs still go thru our wonderful Stephanie Zorn at x6249 or zorns@evergreen.edu    Stephanie and I can also sign off on any individual contracts that need media support.  And, of course, you can always contact me at x6271 or via e-mail with any of you Media Services questions.  My office is now located inside Media Loan, L2504, so please stop by and I'll show you our new digs!

Have a wonderful year!

We have received the following message from Academic Advising.

Please read, print (you may ask in AA for this form) and fill out the forms below and make an appointment with the indicated AA staff.

Subject: 1-1 advising for first year students
Greetings  Faculty Teams,
As we did last year,  we are writing to all faculty teaching core and all-level programs this fall to ask if you will be conducting one-on-one check-ins with your first-year students early (weeks 1-3) in the quarter.  Faculty who have these conversations early in the quarter report increased engagement by students.  The sessions help them identify potential concerns as well as make early connections with their students.  There is also quite a bit of data (Evergreen-specific and from national research) that suggests that an early connection with a faculty or practitioner can positively influence a student's decision to persist at the college.
We believe the most meaningful connection is with the student's faculty member(s).  However, if having 1-1 check-ins is not built into the structure of your program, Academic Advising will arrange for another faculty or staff to conduct this outreach with your first-year students.
Attached are a couple of sample inventories you can use (or not use) for the 1-1 sessions.   If you have any questions about this outreach effort, please don't hesitate to ask. I'm at x6377.
Please let us know by September 18 what your plans are by responding to this email with your response checked below.
____ Yes, our program is conducting 1-1 check-ins with our first-year students early in the quarter.
____ No, our program is not conducting 1-1 check-ins with first-year students early in the quarter.
Thank you,
Terry Ford
Member of the Faculty
