About 25 staff, faculty and students turned out for the director's visit to find out more about legislation that Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn Governor signed into public act on Aug. Claps discussed a new measure that requires universities and institutions of higher learning to display posters explaining sexual harassment laws and policies in prominent and accessible areas for all students.
The notice explains what sexual harassment is and what students can do about it. The amendment to the Illinois Human Rights Act calls for colleges, universities and institutions of higher learning to display posters in common areas including, such as residence halls, administration buildings, student unions, cafeterias and libraries. College campuses can also satisfy the posting requirement by providing each student an electronic copy of the sexual harassment laws and policies at the time that registration materials are emailed.

With a keen interest in traditional Chinese medicine, nursing student Breanna Closen of Peoria decided to take summer for a travel study project in the People's Republic of China right after her sophomore year at the Southern Illinois University Edwardsville School of Nursing.
Closen spent seven weeks in the Yunnan Province, mostly in the city of Kunming. She was among medical and nursing students from impressive institutions such as Harvard and Yale, but she held her own during the trip. During the China trip, Closen encountered an herbalist who was being studied by doctors from the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn. The doctor's research impressed Closen so much she chose the Mayo Clinic as her destination for a summer externship just after her junior year at SIUE. She wanted a chance to study Chinese medicine and Western medicine to make her a better nurse.
Which brings us to the Mayo Clinic. The Mayo Clinic paid for Closen's trip to Rochester and she spent 10 weeks immersed in classes about Western medicine and Chinese traditional medicine. The Mayo Clinic is actually part of three health care institutions in a cluster- the Mayo Clinic, St. Mary's Hospital and Rochester Methodist Hospital. But, when your liver is in danger and you are that close to death, you can''t rely on acupuncture.
Western medicine is still very necessary. But at the Mayo Clinic, there are researchers who are studying the Chinese methods to see how they can tie in to help provide more efficient patient care. According to Closen, Chinese traditional medicine involves a change in how we think about medicine. They also bled out the muscles in that shoulder and the blood was black. They explained old injuries tend to attract the blood to the muscles and the blood can stagnate.
It was quite amazing. Breanna is already at the cutting edge of learning and applying complementary health care initiatives. Indeed, she will have a dynamic approach to her patient care situations. Closen has returned to SIUE for her senior year of nursing study and she was recently accepted to the University's Undergraduate Research Academy, where undergraduates are able to do the kind of research usually reserved for graduate students.
We won't be able to change people's attitudes unless we start with educating healthcare students. There are 5, years of what you might call clinical trials in regard to Chinese medicine," she said. They might not work miracles every time or even work in a way that Western science understands, but they are important enough to learn about them and use them. If it's been around that long, there must be something to it. During her 10 weeks in Rochester, Closen learned much about the institution and found that it is a research institution on a level with, say, a Johns Hopkins.
It's all tied together. It represented the foundation of evidence-based practice. They focus on a professional team approach supported by evidence-based practice to improve patient care, and facilitate an academic environment," she said. Cordova described design-thinking as teachers "moving away from just designing the 'ideal lesson plan,' to viewing ourselves as creating multiple iterations of an ideal lesson plan.

The city of Edwardsville, named for territorial governor Ninian Edwards, began as a frontier fort and gateway to settlers. It became the seat of law and government for Madison County, which at that time encompassed much of the Illinois Territory.
The town was incorporated shortly after Illinois became a state in Readers of Edwardsville are given a nostalgic view of the town a hundred years ago with a stroll down Main Street, a walk through City Park, and a glimpse of the week-long Madison County Centennial celebration through the images preserved in early picture postcards of Edwardsville.

The site's visitors are asked to classify galaxies drawn from the robotic Sloan Digital Sky Survey, dividing those with beautiful spiral arms from the rest. With more than million classifications received to date, many users have built up stunning personal collections.
Microsoft Research's WorldWide Telescope WWT is an interactive virtual observatory that allows users to browse the results from some of the world's best telescopes, including the 1 million galaxies of the Sloan survey. The WWT team identifies galaxies as elliptical and spiral. Individuals have been able to use Galaxy Zoo to make these classifications.
Helping to provide a more accurate vision of the sky for all WWT users, the SIUE team hoped to provide Galaxy Zoo users with something special, said Luebbert, noting the students' intent is to encourage people to learn something new and have fun doing it. Working with Microsoft Research, they've made it possible for all of us to inflict our favorite galaxies on everyone in our lives.
This project would not have been possible without the help of Microsoft Research and the collaboration of the Microsoft staff with the students at SIUE, said Sands, adding: "Microsoft was very gracious to work with us. They provided us the tools we needed to allow users to explore their favorite Galaxy Zoo discoveries through a WorldWide Telescope tour.

The EAC's reaccreditation covered degree programs in civil, electrical, computer, industrial, manufacturing and mechanical engineering. ABET is the recognized accrediting agency of college and university programs in applied science, computing, engineering, and technology. ABET accreditation demonstrates a program's commitment to providing its students with a quality education.
Accreditation is a voluntary, peer-review process that requires programs to undergo comprehensive periodic evaluations. The evaluations-conducted by teams of volunteer professionals working in industry, government, academe, and private practice within the ABET disciplines-focus on program curricula, faculty, facilities, institutional support as well as other important areas.
One of the key elements of ABET accreditation is the requirement that programs continuously improve the quality of education provided. As part of this continuous improvement requirement, programs set specific, measurable goals for their students and graduates; assess success at reaching those goals; and improve programs based on assessment results. In addition to providing colleges and universities a structured mechanism to assess, evaluate, and improve programs, accreditation also helps students and their parents choose quality college programs, enables employers and graduate schools to recruit graduates who are well-prepared, and is used by registration, licensure and certification boards to screen applicants.

A recent public hearing to address cuts to the state's Monetary Assistance Program MAP funding this spring drew personal stories about the importance of the money from student perspectives. About a dozen students offered public testimonies about the relevance of the funding in helping them achieve their goals of earning undergraduate degrees. The public hearing was held prior to a meeting on campus of members of the Illinois Student Assistance Commission ISAC, which is the group that administers the funding.
ISAC recently launched saveillinoismapgrants. Wednesday, Sept. Starting at pm, the ceremony will include a ribbon cutting. At p. Redmond Collection at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, will focus on the poet, educator, performer, and best-selling author Maya Angelou. The exhibit will open at the library Monday, Sept. The exhibit is a testament to the rich and enduring friendship between Ms. Angelou socializing with fellow artists, performing poetry, celebrating achievements with friends and family, and entertaining guests at her home in North Carolina.
The vibrant versatility of facial expressions, body language and hand motions that Dr. Angelou assumes in the photographs confirms Dr. Redmond's notion about the plus "moods of Maya. Redmond, who was in the vanguard of the Black Arts Movement of the s, said he has had an enduring friendship with the author-poet. So, I'm excited because we have known each other four decades, and now we will share this ritual ground together again. Maya Angelou was born April 4th, , in St. Louis, spending part of her childhood there before moving to Stamps, Ark.
Over the years, Ms. Angelou increased her interest in the arts, taking up dance, acting, singing, and creative writing. In , her bestselling autobiography, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings , was published; since then she has authored dozens of other celebrated books. Redmond Collection is one of the greatest post-civil rights collections of African American culture ever assembled," Rambsy said. Speaking about the collection, Redmond points out that SIUE is a fitting place for his work to reside because the University has always been his home, first as a student and then many years later as a faculty member.
Redmond was named poet laureate of East St. He also is founder of the Eugene B. Redmond Writers Club in East St. Poco, credited with starting the country rock phenomenon, will perform at p. Richie Furay and Jim Messina formed Poco after the break-up of the popular Buffalo Springfield, which also included Stephen Stills and Neil Young who went on to forge their own musical legacies. Messina and Furay asked Rusty Young, the newest member of Buffalo Springfield, to join the newly formed group. Also added were bassist Randy Meisner and drummer George Grantham.
A few years after that, Meisner became a founding member of the Eagles and Jim Messina left in to team up with Kenny Loggins. But it was Poco's blend of harmonies and instruments of country music along with rock-n-roll rhythms that paved the way for the country rock supergroups. Enthusiasts of the genre agree that Poco sparked a musical phenomenon that can still be heard in many groups today.
Throughout years of personnel changes, Poco continued to record albums, releasing Legend in which produced one of their signature songs, Crazy Love , in turn becoming a crossover hit on the rock and country charts. In , the original members reunited to record the album Legacy in , which produced the Top 40 hit, Nothin' To Hide. Poco is led today by early members Rusty Young, Paul Cotton and Jack Sundrud, along with drummer George Lawrence, who continue to do about concerts annually.
Last year, the group marked its 40th anniversary. Ticket information, subscription rates and ticket sales are available through the Web site: artsandissues. The brochure contains information about the events and subscription sales for the season.
