Dear 2nd-year Advocate,
For the next two class sessions (Sept. 27 and Oct. 4), we will have split
class for colloquium.
The general breakdown for *this time* (it may be different next time we
have split class) is as follows:
Theme: "Crime & Risk" group
[Advocacy Projects groups DON'T come, but SEE NOTE BELOW*]
Theme: "Family Issues" group
Theme: "Education" group
Advocacy Projects groups
If you are not sure about any aspect of this, please come on Sept. 27. I
should also have a list of who is in what group on the web as soon as
tonight, if you want to check that (http://www.umd.edu/afc).
*NOTE to Advocacy Projects groups: Please turn in your proposal by THIS
Friday, Sept. 29, including a description of what you plan to do, who the
other team members are if you're working together rather than alone, and a
brief report on any progress you may have already made at this point. You
may put it in Al's mailbox in Cumberland 1130 or slip it under the
Advocates office door (1120).
Note to Ryan & Henry: The faculty have discussed your Service-Learning
proposal again and have decided to approve it. Please come on Sept. 27.
I'm sorry I couldn't get this information to you sooner, but because of the
campout (and other factors) it has been difficult for the faculty to confer
on and decide on this matter until this morning.
BTW, a big thanks to everyone who came on the campout and helped make it a
success by taking a leadership role (this turned out to be all the
sophomores who came, in one way or another).
