This week of NCSAM we offer suggestions for protecting your cyber persona.

Social Networks
Social networks such as Facebook and Twitter are becoming a larger and larger part of students’ lives, and employers are already aware of this, including social media as part of their pre-employment checks. Instead of warning you as to what they may look for or giving you a history of Facebook’s changes in security policy (by the time we finished writing that, they’d have changed behind our backs already), we’ll give you an overview of where to optimally set your privacy settings.

ACCOMMODATING OR PANDERING: A Frank Discussion with Student Disability Services
Monday, October 22, 2012
4.00 - 5.00 p.m.
Center for Faculty Excellence, Gannett Center 316
Light refreshments provided.

Do accommodations for students with disabilities give an unfair advantage in the classroom? Do such accommodations lower academic standards? Are we doing students a disfavor by offering what might not be available when they go out into the “real world?” At what point do accommodations cross the line and become unreasonable?

This session is intended to be a frank and open dialogue among faculty members and Student Disability Services staff members Linda Uhll, Robin Dubovi, and Jean Celeste-Astorina.

Registration is encouraged, but not necessary.
