The Each One Reach One group of the Frederick Douglass Institute for Intercultural Research invites the university community to join us in a Poster Making Session to raise awareness about hunger and food insecurity on campus and in the broader community.  The Poster Making Session will be held in the 2nd floor lounge area of the Humanities and Social Sciences Building on Wednesday, April 25, 4-5 pm.  Supplies will be provided and all are welcome to participate.

The Poster Making Session will not only be a relaxing social event during a stressful time of the semester, but will also support efforts to inform the community about work the Each One Reach One group has done to establish a campus food pantry for IUP students.  Completed posters can be donated for possible use in a future food pantry space.

This event will be immediately followed with a presentation by Amanda Cross Brown of the University of Pittsburgh who will be presenting the results of a research study on food insecurity on college campuses in Southwest Pennsylvania.  IUP students participated in the study, and it provides a revealing snapshot on the challenges and struggles many students in southwestern PA face as they pursue their educations.  A Q/A session will follow the presentation.

Please join the Each One Reach One group as they wrap up a year of engaging with these important issues!

Dear Student Teachers,

It is hard to believe you are more than halfway through your student teaching semester! We hope you are engaged in dynamic learning opportunities. The Mandatory Professional Day Meeting for Spring 2018 student teachers will be held on Wednesday, April 25 at 8:00 a.m. in the Ohio Room of the HUB. Please inform your cooperating teacher and supervisor of this excused absence from student teaching.

At this meeting you will receive information about the Pennsylvania certification process; adding on certifications, applying for certification outside the state; and applying and interviewing with prospective employers. Additionally, the staff from the Registrar’s Office will be at the Professional Day meeting. This will be an opportunity to check your degree information and to make sure that any minors and/or concentrations are represented on your transcript. You will also be able to purchase your cap and gown at the Co-op Store on that day.

Act 36 letters will be distributed at the end of this important meeting. These are the letters which verify your degree completion and pending certification to school districts. These letters are the required document for day to day substitute teaching following your graduation. Please do not contact our office prior to April 25 to request these letters. Some departments have additional activities planned for their students on this day as well.  We advise you to contact your department about any departmental activities that are planned for that day.  We look forward to seeing you and talking with you about your student teaching experience!
