A. CEPS PROGRAM AREA NEWS

————————————————————-

 

A.1. The School of Education is in the process of hiring a new dean and students are invited to meet with the candidates who are coming in for onsite interviews.  The first candidate, Linda Irwin-DeVitis, will be here on Wednesday April 3rd and will be meeting with students from 3pm-4pm in Lewis Towers room 1030.  All CEPS students are invited and encouraged! to attend.

 

A.2. All graduating students (and current students!) please make sure to sign up for the CEPS group on LinkedIn “Loyola University Chicago CEPS Students and Alumni” Group on LinkedIn. The hope is that this will provide a useful forum for current students and graduates to stay in touch with one another and to exchange resources and interact with one another. We have set this up as a members-only group and Molly McSweeney, a 2012 CEPS MA grad, is serving as the moderator of the group. If you don’t have a LinkedIn account they are easy and free to set up — then, you can send a request to join the group via LinkedIn or you can “connect” with Molly directly on the site and follow-up by sending her a note on LinkedIn saying you’d like to be added to the group.  If you are graduating this May please make sure to also sign up for the CEPS Friends / Alumni listserv since you’ll no longer receive this electronic newsletter to your Loyola student email account.  Signup info at: http://lists.luc.edu/listinfo/ceps-alumni

 

A.3. As announced earlier, Beth Wright, a CEPS PhD student, has joined Loyola’s Writing Center as a volunteer graduate writing tutor who will specifically work with graduate students in the CEPS program.  Tutoring sessions will be scheduled between 3:30 and 6:30pm on Tuesdays are available to anyone, regardless of your writing prowess or your stage in the writing process.  This is not a place for copy-editing, but rather for conversation about your ideas and how to communicate them.  Whether you consider yourself a writing expert or novice, love writing or hate it, tutoring sessions seek to push your ideas and your writing to new levels.  In order to sign up for a tutoring session, students need to go to https://luc.mywconline.com/ to first register an account, and then sign in. Whenever students sign in, they should select Corboy Law, Room 700, Graduate from the pull-down menu. This will ensure that they can sign up with a graduate writing tutor rather than an undergrad. When they sign in, they’ll see a weekly calendar. You may (always) sign up to work with any tutor, but if you’d like to work with Beth please look for her name in the left column and sign up for an available slot on Tuesdays between 3:30 and 6:30.
