I want to take this opportunity to update the campus community on changes that are being made to the Cashiering office’s hours and services.

Due to recent staffing changes within the College’s Cashiering Office, located on the 3rd floor of the Campus Center,  the office will be closing effective Wednesday, July 15th.   As a result, the College has entered into a service agreement with CFCU in which CFCU will be providing certain services on behalf of the College.  We are working diligently with CFCU in an effort to finalize the specifics around the services they will provide and what services will be handled out of the Financial Services Office located on the 14th floor of the West Tower.

Laura Kuo, Health Sciences Librarian, and Jana Waller, Clinical Instructor/Fieldwork Coordinator/Assistant Chair in the Department of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology, recently had a manuscript accepted for publication in Contemporary Issues in Communication Science and Disorders (CICSD).

In their article, Teaching Evidence-Based Practice and Information Literacy in an Undergraduate Speech-Language Pathology Program: A Student Reflection, Kuo and Waller highlight the benefits of collaboratively teaching undergraduate students information literacy (IL) skills for finding evidence-based information. The publication is based on a study they conducted to assess teaching evidence-based practice (EBP) and IL skills through an active-learning library workshop in an undergraduate speech-language pathology (SLP) capstone course.
