C-StREAM Applications Deadline Extended

C-StREAM (Chesapeake Student Recruitment, Early Advisement, and Mentoring) is a new CRC-coordinated program that is intended to increase the workforce for environmental restoration by finding, inspiring, and mentoring talented college students – focusing primarily from previously under-represented groups – toward careers in environmental protection and restoration. The program strives to engage the student through extended involvement in interesting projects with multiple mentors — from both their home institution and one or more CRC members or other C-StREAM partnering institutions — in a program of longer-term advisement and assistance.

Application to a C-StREAM summer internship is open to undergraduates at any level of study, including post-baccalaureate.  Preference is given to


students from cultures and backgrounds that are typically under-represented in environmental science, engineering, and management (relative to watershed populations);(These include, for example, native Ameri…

MANRRS General Body Meeting

Thursday, March 28th   5:30 - 6:30 PM  Symons Hall 0118


"MANRRS is a national society that welcomes membership of people of all racial and ethnic group participation in agricultural and related science careers. MANRRS members are encouraged to be full participants in other professional societies for their basic disciplinary and career interests. However, MANRRS attempts to provide networks to support the professional development of minorities. It is a springboard for their entry into and advancement in careers where they otherwise could be lost in the sheer number and established connections of mainstream participants. For student members, MANRRS provides role models and networking opportunities. MANRRS also offers students opportunities to enhance leadership and organizational and public speaking skills, and to experience professional critique of scholarly worked in a “user-friendly” environment."

Call for Volunteers - Residence Hall Waste Audits

Call for Volunteers - Residence Hall Waste Audits
Facilities Management, Residential Facilities, and Dining Services are collaborating to conduct a series of waste audits of campus residence halls. At a University of our size, there is an enormous amount of waste generated. In order to better understand this waste, it is critical that we have reliable data to properly plan for, manage, and ultimately minimize all types of waste. We are holding a series of waste audits throughout the Spring semester to gather data for the evaluation and improvement of our waste program. Audits will be held on select Fridays from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. outside of Maryland stadium. The sign up link can be found below.
To support these audits, we are looking for student volunteers. Volunteers will be provided with the knowledge and the necessary materials to correctly identify, sort, and weigh waste items. Volunteers will also be given a swag bag for sustainable living.
We have created online forms to facili…

LAST DAY TO DROP WITH "W"

Dropping with a “W” – Spring 2019
FRIDAY, APRIL 12 is the LAST DAY TO DROP one class or 4 credits with a “W.” This means you could drop HEBR 112 (6 credits, but one class) or ENGL 212 and KNES 155N (4 credits, but two classes).
WHAT IF I NEED TO DROP MORE THAN 4 CREDITS? If extenuating circumstances are causing difficulty with your academics, please contact me because there is help available on campus, and academic procedures to be followed, should you need assistance handling the academic consequences of a personal situation.  It is better to “strategize” now, while you have options, than to wait and do nothing, hoping the situation will “right” itself.
WHAT IF I AM RECEIVING FINANCIAL AID?  Check with your Financial Aid counselor in the Lee Building NOW if dropping a course would put you below 12 credits.  Most aid programs allow this provided you began the semester with 12 or more credits, but there may be a few that do not – and it can be expen$ive to make an incorrect assumption.
