Now you know

If you live in or grew up in Wisconsin, home is probably where the supper
club is. More than just a place to gorge on prime rib and hoist an Old
Fashioned, the Wisconsin supper club has a glamorous and storied past.
Brenda Bredahl of the University Communications office shares some supper club history and gives us a glimpse of what the future holds for our beloved cultural institution in the summer 2009 issue of Wisconsin People & Ideas magazine, published by the Wisconsin Academy of Sciences, Arts and Letters.

Chancellor Van Galen is hosting a series of listening sessions with various campus constituencies over the next few weeks to gain greater insight into issues and values members of the UWRF community believe are of greatest importance. Classified staff participated in the first listening session held Monday in the UC. Above, Angela Whitaker  (center left), marketing specialist in Outreach & Graduate Studies, shares her idea. A second listening session for classified staff (for those who missed Monday's session) is scheduled for today, July 21, at 1 p.m. in the Kinnickinnic Theater, UC.

An open request to campus

Our State Council on Affirmative Action has made available two awards for recognition of individuals and programs that encourage the recruitment, retention and promotion of a diverse workforce. 
The first of these awards is named after former Chancellor Ann Lydecker, and is intended to recognize the achievements of individuals. The second award is the Diversity Award, and is intended to recognize the achievement of programs or initiatives of a particular institution. In 2003, our campus was a recipient of the Diversity Award and again in 2008, bestowed upon our own CAFES.
I am asking you to consider the good efforts of your organization and the individuals or programs who may qualify for these awards. Please submit nominees, using the candidate information outlined, to Craig Morris, Room 117, North Hall, on or before Saturday, Aug. 1.
After receipt of your nominations, I will forward my recommendations to the State Council for their review and final determination of the award recipients. Information about these awards is located at the Campus Inclusiveness and Diversity Web site found at http://www.uwrf.edu/inclusiveness/awardsrecognition.html
With your help and leadership we will continue to build a diverse and inclusive campus. Thank you in advance for your attention to this matter.
