Wednesday, July 29, 2015

Senior Fellows are NSU faculty members, NSU administrators or members of the larger Hampton Roads community whose primary function is to help raise funds for and awareness of the Honors College and to support its goals actively and enthusiastically.

Senior Fellows are invited to attend Honors College events both on and off campus plus weekly Honors Cafés at the Midrise Honors College Residential Hall in order to interact with students under the leadership of the Dean of the Honors College. Attendance at one Honors Café or event per month is expected; attendance at other Honors-sponsored events is encouraged as it is practicable for the individual Fellow. Fellows may be asked to speak at such gatherings, and/or to offer students shadowing or internship opportunities. Senior Fellows (approximately 35 in number) are appointed by the President for a renewable term of two years. NSU faculty members will receive credit on their faculty evaluations commensurate with their service; preference will be given to faculty who are currently teaching Honors courses, have taught such courses, or are willing to teach them in the future.

Faculty may self-nominate by sending a cover letter and curriculum vitae to Dr. Page Laws, Dean of the Honors College, who will forward it to the Provost and President. The deadline for self-nominating or nominating others is August 7, 2015. Call ext. 8208 for more information.

Printing Request

Friday, July 24, 2015

Attention Campus Community, we are nearing the end of our lease agreement for multi-functional digital devices (copiers). Canon has been selected once again as the vendor to meet the copying, scanning and faxing needs of the campus. We will begin receiving copiers on the campus on Monday, July 27, (approximately 20 per day).  During this transition period, we are asking that you house the old and new units in your office until the new copiers are properly networked (in order to have minimal down time). This should take approximately two weeks.
