Breakthrough

If you know a currently enrolled college student with LD/ADHD who is experiencing challenges in their academic studies, you can help them “get back on track” this semester with a unique Breakthrough Semester at Beacon College.

If their undergraduate record is currently compromised by their learning difference, we can help determine if the Breakthrough Semester is a good fit. During this semester-long program, they’ll pursue a course of study and targeted plan of action that will give them new skills, perspectives, and ambitions — and help them secure or regain solid academic footing.

As a Breakthrough Semester participant, they’ll learn how to:

  • Make the most of their intellectual talents;
  • Identify their own personal learning style and strengths;
  • Activate and reinforce core academic skills and habits;
  • Forge a course of action for future college success;
  • Reset their academic and career trajectory;
  • Build basic academic skills; and
  • Thrive as a valued member of Beacon’s welcoming living-and-learning community.

Please forward this email to parents of students you believe may benefit from Beacon College’s innovative and transformative Breakthrough Semester. For more information or to request additional materials to share with students and families, please contact the Office of Admissions at 855-220-5376 or email admissions@beaconcollege.edu.

Many thanks for your assistance.

University of Evansville Announces Institute for Public Health

The University of Evansville has announced a new Institute for Public Health, which will facilitate partnerships that provide hands-on experiences to students while addressing community needs in the area of public health.

The mission of the institute is to “cultivate multidisciplinary partnerships among faculty, students, and community members in ways that support the planning and development of evidence-based programs and sound policy.”

“The community is where we work,” said William McConnell, PhD, JD, MPH, director of the Institute for Public Health at UE. “The institute will provide UE students and faculty a platform to come together with the community to solve real public health issues.”

The institute’s first major project has been leading and collaborating with 11 hospital systems around the state of Indiana to conduct a 39-county Community Health Needs Assessment. Projects like this not only connect the University with communities and leaders in health but also provide a range of opportunities for student and faculty collaboration and research. For more information or to request consultation on a public health issue, please visit our website.

The Psychology Department Welcomes New Faculty to UE!

Vinn Campese, PhD
Assistant Professor of Psychology

Vinn Campese earned his PhD from the City University of New York Graduate Center. His thesis project examined the neural substrates involved in context-specific memory. He has been a postdoctoral research scientist in the LeDoux lab since 2011, where he has pursued questions about how associative learning contributes to motivation and memory. His work has focused on how maladaptive anxiety or fear-related defensive responding is eliminated by prior experience with avoidance learning. His long-term goal is to identify brain mechanisms that control defensive responding and promote active coping. Vinn Campese

Campese will teach Statistics, Introduction to Neuroscience, and Introduction to Psychology in Fall 2018. Future classes may include Learning, Sensation and Perception, and Neuroscience Research Methods.

Jason Pitt, PhD
Assistant Professor of Physical Therapy

Jason Pitt earned his PhD from Northwestern. His thesis project examined the neural mechanisms of Alzheimer’s disease. His postdoctoral research examined the roll of the basal nucleus (ganglia) in learning and motor skills. He is joining the physical therapy department to teach graduate courses in neuroscience and will contribute to courses in the biology and neuroscience programs.

These courses may include developmental neuroscience, molecular neuroscience, and seminar courses in his research area.

Jason Pitt

Both new faculty members will be on campus August 2018. They are eager to engage with UE students in the classroom and in research!

University of Evansville Announces New Minors in British Studies and Race and Ethnicity Studies

The University of Evansville announces the addition of two new minors: British Studies and Race and Ethnicity Studies.

British Studies Minor
The British Studies course has been the cornerstone of the Harlaxton College curriculum for at least 25 years and, by extension, has served as a common experience for thousands of UE undergraduates and alumni. Harlaxon College, UE’s living, learning center in Grantham, England, is a popular study abroad location for many University of Evansville students.

“The addition of this minor further integrates and strengthens the academic options for UE students,” says Michael Austin, executive vice president for academic affairs at UE. “Most visibly, it will create a curricular pathway that students can follow from admission to study abroad to graduation, making British Studies a central feature of the academic experience rather than a one-off study abroad option.”

The interdisciplinary nature of the program should make it intellectually attractive to students from across the University, and we envision the program being accessible to virtually the same range of students that are attracted to Harlaxton now.

Visit our website to learn more.

Race and Ethnicity Studies Minor
The minor in Race and Ethnicity Studies is an interdisciplinary program in which students critically examine the complexity and constructions of race and ethnicity in different socio-historical and cultural contexts. The program at UE includes experiential education in which fieldwork, an internship, or research involving racial/ethnic issues is supported by critical analysis.

Students complete a common core and work with an advisor to select from a range of elective courses, which include options in the humanities, social sciences, education, and public health.

The minor prepares students from a wide variety of majors to engage an increasingly diverse world as informed, ethical citizens.

Visit our website to learn more.

Meet Our Admission Counselors

Laura Burton
Territory: Michigan, Missouri, and Ohio

Laura is a life-long resident of Evansville and loves to share her enthusiasm for the community. Her advice to high school students is, don’t be afraid to turn in information request cards to get on mailing lists. This is a great way to start collecting information important to you. Apply to and visit as many schools as you can. Keep an open mind and do the research. This takes time so start early.

Laura Burton
With summer just around the corner, I want to remind you that most universities have their admission office open all summer long. If you have students that will vacation over the summer, encourage them to make a university visit while they are away. It is a great way to see colleges all over the nation and not incur an extra expense! Our monthly newsletters will return in August. Have a great summer!

Sincerely,
Shane Davidson, EdD
Vice President for Enrollment and Marketing

We’re offering two week-long sessions for Grades 4 through 8, from July 16th – 20th and July 23rd – 27th at The Sycamore School in Arlington. Parents can learn more at Camp Pursuit – Virginia. I have also attached a flier. If there are any questions, please call 240-570-9037.

 

Hampden-Sydney College (VA): Summer program for HS males

Hampden-Sydney College wants to help young men become a better leaders. That’s why we’re inviting them to apply for the Shelton Leadership Challenge—an intense and selective six-day residential summer camp for young men.
During the SLC, we guarantee that participants will be challenged—physically, mentally, and psychologically. They will take on leadership positions and participate in team-building activities (like ropes courses and focused discussions). They will tackle a service project with other campers and further develop their leadership potential.
The SLC is a selective program for male students who have a 3.0 or higher G.P.A. (un-weighted). The program will take place from June 24 through June 29, 2018, on the Hampden-Sydney College campus near Farmville, VA. Cost to attend the program is $650 for the week; this cost covers room, board and all activities.
We truly appreciate your support of Hampden-Sydney College.  We thank you, too, for suggesting the Shelton Leadership Challenge as a possible summer opportunity for the young men at your school.
