Vol. 17 No. 22 - Feb. 25, 2013

Features

  • Visiting Author to Discuss Ownership

    Visiting author and Tellus Institute fellow Marjorie Kelly will give an all-campus talk at 3:30 p.m. Feb. 28 in Violette Hall 1010.

    Kelly’s presentation is entitled “From English Major to Ownership Design Consultant: How I found my way from Hemingway to narrative nonfiction to business consulting, and made a living (and had a blast) along the way.” It will be followed by a signing of her latest book, “Owning Our Future: The Emerging Ownership Revolution.”

    Kelly’s insights are the result of study at the University of Missouri School of Journalism and a 20-year presidency of the Journal of Business Ethics. Both realistic and revolutionary, conscientious and exceedingly relevant, author Michael Shuman declares that, “anyone who cares enough about capitalism to save it from its worst excesses should read this book. Marjorie Kelly demonstrates convincingly that ownership by employees, community residents, and mission-driven charities, rather than by absentee shareholders, is the key to world class performance.”

    Stocked with solutions both ethically and fiscally profitable, Kelly emerges as an example of ingenuity in an increasingly competitive market and world.

    This event is sponsored by the School of Business, the departments of English and Linguistics and Interdisciplinary Studies, and the Writing Across the Curriculum Committee.

  • Human Trafficking Documentary to be Shown March 1

    There will be a free campus-wide screening of the documentary “Sex and Money: A National Search for Human Worth” at 7 p.m. March 1 in the Student Union Down Under.

    The documentary focuses on the topic of domestic minor sex trafficking and the modern-day abolitionist movement fighting to stop it. Five young photojournalists gathered information for the film by traveling to more than 30 states and conducting more than 75 interviews with federal agents, victims, politicians, activists and psychologists. The film hopes to educate viewers on sex trafficking as an issue that greatly affects the United States, and is not just an international concern.

    Following the screening, there will be an open discussion panel in which students can ask questions, discuss their reactions to the film and receive information on how they can take part in the movement to end modern-day slavery. 

    The screening of this film is funded by the Multicultural Affairs Center and sponsored by Residence Life.

  • Faculty Forum Returns Feb. 26

    The Faculty Forum will continue at 7 p.m. Feb. 26 in the Baldwin Hall Little Theatre when P. Joan Poor and Jeanette Snowball present “Campus Built Heritage and Institutional Loyalty.”

    Research has shown that the racial diversity of college/university student populations improves social tolerance and academic performance. However, it has also found that students of color are more likely to drop out than their white counterparts, and to feel isolated and excluded from campus life.

    One possible reason for such feelings is the built heritage on campuses, particularly those with colonial-era style, which is often used in college marketing and recruiting.

    This research uses student survey data from St. Mary’s College of Maryland in the U.S. and Rhodes University in South Africa to investigate student attitudes towards, and knowledge about, campus built heritage and their perceptions of its impact on student loyalty.

  • FAFSA Applications

    Remember to file the 2013-2014 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) located at fafsa.gov to determine Title IV federal aid eligibility (Pell Grant, SEOG, Perkins Loan, Work Study, Stafford Direct Loans, PLUS Loans). FAFSA results are also needed for some other federal, state, University and private programs. The state’s FAFSA filing deadline for the Access Missouri Grant Program is April 1. Do not delay due to late tax filing – the FAFSA allows the use of estimated information – just update the FAFSA record after the 2012 income tax figures are finalized. Later FAFSA filing may result in more limited funding options. Contact the Financial Aid Office (McClain Hall 103, 660.785.4130) for additional information.

    How Does Truman Measure Up?

    Truman uses assessment data to allow the University to get a clear picture of where Truman students and faculty are excelling as well as where they need more assistance. In an effort to remind the campus of what is assessed at Truman and where they can find the assessment results, the assessment committee will be highlighting several of assessment topics in the next few weeks.   

    The first assessment topic is the Student Interview Project results. In 2012, “multiple back-to-back assignments and tests in different classes” was the No. 1 cause of academic stress for Truman students, with 88 percent of students reporting that it caused high amounts of stress. Specific data related to this interview project, as well as other interesting facts about how Truman is doing via the Assessment Almanac, can be accessed at assessment.truman.edu/almanac/index.asp.
