Dear Colleagues –
Welcome back! We hope your break was restful and restorative. Here are some Resources and Reminders for the upcoming weeks:
Attendance forms are due to Registration and Records no later than Friday of week one (Jan 8). Don’t forget that students can continue to add and drop programs throughout the week. They may do this using a registration form or, if you are a program coordinator, you can enter an override online which allows admitted students to complete their registration through my.evergreen.edu until 4 pm Friday. Please help students find and process the resources they need.
Registration Closes on Day 10 (Jan 15), so if you have a student who is not thriving, please direct them to an academic advisor as early as possible (at email@example.com). Sometimes getting out of a program is better—academically and financially–than staying in. Please help students land in a learning environment that works for them.
Responding to Students: Responding to student inquiries can be a powerful form of recruitment and retention. When students – and potential students – email or call with questions, please try to get back to them in a timely manner. For those of you with underenrolled offerings, we hope you will continue admitting students through the end of the week.
Dates and Deadlines:
• Fall quarter student evaluations were due January 4, 2021. Please turn in your evaluations, if you haven’t already! Delays in posted evals can mean holds on financial aid, or graduation and career delays, and more, which are very stressful for students. If you are still awaiting late work from students who have otherwise completed your fall program, be sure to post an “incomplete” with a due date if you have not yet done so.
• Please turn in your syllabus and community agreement through my.evergreen.edu by Friday, January 15th.
• A reminder that the full afternoon of Wednesday, January 6 (1-5) is designated for faculty curriculum planning. Please use this time for your program/course planning, including making decisions about your 2022-23 schedules. Please note that 2022-23 program summaries are due January 15, 2021 and 2022-23 catalog copy is due April 2, 20201 (through my.evergreen.edu)
Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowships (SURF) faculty applications are due January 25, 2021 at 5:00pm.
Kutter Fund for Microbiology Research applications are due January 29, 2021 at 5:00pm
Plato Lecture Series Award applications are due February 5, 2021.
(Apologies for delays in website updates on these due dates. Working on it! Please go by these due dates)
Thanks for all you do, and good luck with your winter quarter!
