IPIC's Professional Development Sampler Fall 2012
Once again, we are very excited to invite you to our IPIC Professional Development Sampler Fall 2012. There’s something for everyone and all are welcome! This year we have done something different. We are offering tracks of workshops in three specific areas: Teaching and Learning (TL), College Programs and Policies(CPP), and Student Support Services (SSS). We have done our best not to have the tracks conflict.

  • For those of you interested in the Teaching and Learning track, we have a variety of courses that should appeal to everyone. There are sessions on the learning experience of an online student, the Curriculum Agenda, teaching writing in a non-English class, ethics, active learning, and Prezi, just to name a few.
  • Specifically for our language adjunct faculty, we have added a session that coincides with your trip to the campus for the Thursday evening Convocation: "Best Practices in Teaching Foreign Languages."
  • For those interested in our College Programs and Policies track, we have workshops on academic integrity, Project NASA, the Completion Agenda, fundraising activities, and an overview of what the Marketing and Communications Department can do to help you and a review of the new Style Guide.
  • Finally, for those of you interested in the Student Support Services track, we have an update on the "First 30", financial aid and the Advisory Commission.

Our IPIC Workshops are scheduled for Monday afternoon (8/20), Wednesday afternoon (8/22), Thursday evening (8/23), and Friday morning (8/23). We’d love to see you join us. Please visit the following link to review the many choices, check out the details, and register: http://teach.mccc.edu/ipic. We look forward to seeing you all there! If you have any questions, please call ext. 3551. Wishing you a restful summer filled with family and friends! On behalf of the IPIC committee, Theresa Capra and Alison Becker-Moses. More here.

Support "Jeans for Troops"
From Elaine Weinberg: Jeans for Troops Day is May 24, 2012. All of us know someone who is or was in the military. Coming home from war and reemerging into civilian life is difficult. The G.I. Go Fund is an agency that helps vets find jobs, go to college, get health care and find housing. It’s a 501©(3) non-profit organization that assists vets with their return from Iraq and Afghanistan. The day is in honor and memory of Lt. Seth Dvorin from East Brunswick who died Feb. 3, 2004, serving during Operation Iraqi Freedom. For those who would like to do our two most favorite things -- wear jeans to work and help others -- this is an opportunity to do both. Please fill out the attached form and send a check made out to G.I. Go Fund for $5. Send the check to Elaine Weinberg in MC142. Form here. Flyer here.

Thank You From Luci McElhenny
"Words cannot express how grateful I am that so many of you took the time to attend my retirement party. This will be the final week of my “Retirement Countdown.” It seems like May 1987, when I started at Mercer, was just yesterday. I began my career in the Continuing Education Office, then enjoyed working in the President’s area, with the Dean of Administration and Finance, in the Arts and Communications Division, and finally in the Transfer and Career Services Office. The friendships I’ve formed with colleagues and students over the past twenty-five years are very precious to me. Faculty, staff and administrators have always been so supportive of me through the years. The journey has been incredible, one that I will cherish the rest of my life. Now I am ready to move on to the next phase, spending time with Allan, the six grandkids, our dog Rocco, cooking, and just enjoying being home. Each one of you will always hold a special place in my heart. Thanks for twenty-five amazing years. I wish you all the very best. Luci"
