From UCSPE
The following announcements are from the Office of University Center, Student Programs and Events.

Seeking Emerging Leaders Participants
Have you participated in CUA's Emerging Leaders (EL) program as a past presenter, facilitator or student?  Or maybe you recall a student who participated and can connect him or her with the UCSPE staff. If so, your feedback is valuable to us!


Initiatives to establish a future leadership development program are ongoing. One goal is to incorporate past EL participants and facilitators into the program. If you are interested in leading sessions, facilitating conversation or serving as a mentor to future EL participants, please get in touch.  We currently are developing a post-test data collection instrument to gather past information about the program. If you are willing to be involved in this program which may consist of surveys, correspondence with UCSPE and focus groups please contact us.

For more information, contact Kim Timpany, associate director for student programs, at 202-319-5291 or timpany@cua.edu.

Seeking Family Weekend Steering Committee Members
UCSPE currently is looking for students, faculty and staff interested in being involved as volunteers or committee members for Family Weekend 2005 scheduled Oct. 28-30.

If you have a talent related to event planning, decorating, graphic design, etc., or if your department/organization would like to contribute a program or service that will make family weekend more exciting and inviting for guests, contact Kim Timpany at 202-319-5291 or timpany@cua.edu.

Volunteer Advisers for Student Organizations Wanted
Attention CUA administration, faculty and staff: Are you looking for new ways to share your talents with CUA students? If you said 'yes,' UCSPE would like you to consider advising a student organization at CUA.
Each year a number of student organization adviser positions become vacant, and those organizations seek talented faculty or staff members to fill them. The UCSPE student programs staff hopes to connect students in the groups with qualified, interested and motivated advisers. 

The adviser serves as a resource for student organizations by giving advice, sharing ideas and showing support. Other major functions of an adviser include:


1. Promote the growth and development of students and the organization.

2. Facilitate the organization's continuity.

3. Be knowledgeable of pertinent university protocol and guidelines and keep the organization well-informed of them.

4. Encourage the organization to adhere to its mission and purpose.


The adviser serves as a resource for the organization, aids in the growth and development of the organization and its members by guiding them in their decision-making process, is a consistent and supportive presence for the student organization, challenges the group and motivates them in their endeavors, and serves as a liaison between the organization and the university. 

The role of the adviser may vary depending on the needs of the organization. Following are some advisory roles (adapted from The Leadership Center at Washington State University):  teacher/mentor, consultant, continuity, link, observer, resource, financial adviser/supervisor.

To learn more about the organizations in need of an adviser, visit http://universitycenter.cua.edu/students/. For more information, contact Kim Timpany at timpany@cua, or Regina Howell, program coordinator, at howell@cua.edu, or call 202-319-5291.
