Make your work count with faculty workshop

In its Jan. 15 workshop, "Developing a Strategy to Document Your Community-Engaged Scholarship Using Research Metrics and Qualitative Evidence," the Center for Service and Learning will equip faculty with the tools to share the products of their hard work with the community. The workshop will also cover topics like managing your digital identity, engaging with different audiences, and gathering evidence to support professional and project goals. You can get more details on the event page or register to attend the event, which will take place from noon to 1:30 p.m. in University Library's Room 1116.

Nominate colleagues who go beyond the call of duty

Faculty are invited to nominate their colleagues for the 2018 Glenn W. Irwin, Jr., M.D. Experience Excellence Award. Established in 1984, this award was created to recognize those individuals whose service to IUPUI goes beyond just doing their job. All full-time faculty members who have worked for IUPUI a minimum of 12 months are eligible, and you can nominate until Feb. 9. Don't miss this opportunity to recognize those who make IUPUI a place that matters!

Honor Martin Luther King Jr. through service

Staff, students and community members across IUPUI will be coming together for the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service on Monday, Jan. 15. The legacy of one of the greatest freedom activists of all time will be honored as participants spread to sites throughout the Indianapolis community, ready to make a change.

Registration is closed, but a waitlist is being maintained for those who are interested in contributing to their community through the day of service.
