Each of the six new Collegian Centers is envisioned as a disciplinary/interdisciplinary environment that strengthens studentsí commitment to scholarship and academe, and provides them with a sense of belonging. The Centers will address studentsí needs for more personalized assistance in their disciplines and provide opportunities for internships, research, and other intellectual activities. This semester, the Collegian Coordinators are developing the Centers, enlisting the support of other faculty as mentors, developing a Web site, and planning a spring reception to launch the Centers.

Each of you has an opportunity to be part of the development of the Collegian Centers and contribute to their success. For more information about the Collegian Centers and how you can participate, talk with one of the Collegian Coordinators, or call Verna Teasdale (0767).
