Updates regarding Undergraduate Research & Research/Arts Fellow Transcript Notations (Sujaya Rao)
Blue cord to wear at Commencement
Transcript Notation Form A – for students who do thesis. Does not include as much narrative about the thesis since that is already documented elsewhere. Sujaya is trying to add notation to the form for programs that already require a thesis (e.g. Physics, CEOAS majors, etc.)
Transcript Notation Form B – includes written project description, etc.
Difference between Research Fellow and Arts Fellow is still unclear. In years past, students have been allowed to apply for both.
Sujaya would like to hire an Ambassador from each College. They will give presentations at recruiting events (welcome week, U-engage, etc) promoting the program. They will also be trained to do some peer mentoring.
Summer Research Symposium – intended to capture students who don’t have any other opportunity to present (e.g. URISC). Hoping to use LInC.
Alcohol EDU/Haven (Leslee Mayers)
Both modules are two-part and are advertised during START.
Haven required of ALL students on all campuses.
AlcoholEDU only required of Corvallis students.
Part 1 takes 90-120 minutes
Sep 7 – all new students receive email notification about this requirement.
Reminders are sent regularly to those who haven’t completed the modules
Sep 21 – module completion is due. Failure to complete leads to Grade-Viewing Hold (not a registration hold)
Part 2 takes 10-20 minutes
Oct 21 – email reminder for part 2
Nov1 - module completion is due. Failure to complete leads to Grade-Viewing Hold (not a registration hold)
Community Module – timeline is still in development so we don’t have much info. It will be online.
Chemistry Updates (CH 231math perquisites and more) from COS (Tyler DeAdder)
Math PREQ for CH 231
Un-linking CH 231 and CH 261
Guidelines for Placement in CH 231 (see handout)
Progressor Students in the Fall (Leslee Mayers)
Progressor Advisor (Madison Lamb?) has told students who don’t attend June Progressor Day that they should attend the FY/TR START session on September 19th (even though they should actually be attending the INTL START on Friday, September 16th ). Many have made travel arrangements based on this misinformation – estimate is 60 Progressors who will be at FY/TR START.
September STARTs (Leslee Mayers)
We need to schedule our own rooms for September sessions:
9/16 INTL START
10:45 – 11:45 academic presentation
9/19 FY/TR (and Progressors)
9:45 – 10:45 academic presentation
Election of Academic Advising Chair elect
Nick Fleury (Agricultural Sciences) elected

COS Head Advisor – Heather Arbuckle
COF Advising moves to Snell 4th Floor on June 15th
