Public Affairs Convocation – Tuesday, October 20
“The chilling truth is that his story could have been mine. And the tragedy is that my story could have been his, ” says Wes Moore. His best-selling book, “The Other Wes Moore,” reflects on his youth and that of another man who shares his name. While they grew up in similar circumstances, their adult lives are remarkably different. Moore’s book chronicles their journeys and choices; it’s intended to spark discussion about the influences and expectations that shape young people. In addition to being a best-selling author, Moore is a youth advocate, veteran and founder of BridgeEdU, which provides support to students as they begin their college careers. He will share his journey during this semester’s Public Affairs Convocation.
When: 7 p.m., Oct. 20, 2015
- Where: John Q. Hammons Arena
- Who: Wes Moore
- Tickets: Free and open to the public
- Sponsor: Public Affairs

- Curriculum Innovation Projects 2015-2016 Call for Proposals – The FCTL Advisory Council invites project proposals for the 2015-2016 Curriculum Innovation funding. This funding opportunity is to provide support for innovative teaching strategies that focus on student engagement, active learning, and student success. While the FCTL Advisory Council welcomes all proposals, we encourage those that intend to demonstrate deeper learning outcomes and have the potential to be applied to other disciplines. Projects will be funded up to $5,000 and proposals should include a statement of the problem or a goal statement, projected itemization of expenses, approach and planned methodology for the project and any findings, and dissemination of these results to peers both within the university and beyond in terms of publications or professional presentations. Proposals must detail how active teaching and learning strategies will be implemented and evaluated. Faculty interested in submitting a proposal are required to schedule a pre-grant meeting with the FCTL to review the application process and review measurable outcomes. To schedule meeting contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Proposals should be submitted electronically to the Faculty Center for Teaching and Learning email@example.com no later than October 31, 2015.
