Next Up!

Next up! is a regular feature on Sundays, showcasing HWC (and beyond) events in the coming week. Use the “Comments” section to provide updates and additions.

Welcome to Week 11.

Ongoing: Loop Players performances of 12 Angry Jurors. See here for the schedule and info. Also, there is the Transfer Career fair running all week (click here for more information), and Native American Heritage events start this week, too, including film screenings, lectures, and book discussions. More info on that when I have it. And don’t forget that the Chicago Humanities Festival is running all week, too, with many amazing, free events for students and teachers.

Monday, 11/1: Remind your students to vote on Tuesday, and be sure to ask them if they plan to attend any of the above.

Tuesday, 11/2: Vote. Ask your students if they voted. Ask them if they intend to on their way home. Also, come to the Faculty Council Special Meeting, that President Amanda Loos called to discuss all of the myriad things we have to discuss in light of the last week or two’s events (3:30pm, rm 1046).

Wednesday, 11/3: I don’t know what’s going on (other than the things listed above), so maybe today would be a good day to check out Blackboard 9.1 using Ephrem’s training video or do that electronic grade submission training that we have to do before November 19th.

Thursday, 11/4: Maybe think about going to this month’s Board meeting (9am @ 226 W. Jackson), if you happen to be free. And if you go, let us know what happened.

Friday, 11/5: The November Chair’s meeting happens sometime in the morning. The rest of us are not allowed to attend, but if you have anything in particular that you’d like your chair to say to the administration from you or your department, try to make sure they know it before 9 am or so.
