Education Abroad Program opening for associate director for Academic Affairs
The Education Abroad Program (EAP) is seeking an associate director for Academic Affairs (ADAA). The ADAA provides leadership in the generation of academic policy, development of new and revision of existing instructional programs, and the administration of academic personnel processes.
The ADAA must be a tenured member of the UC Academic Senate.
The appointment is for a two-year term, subject to a possible renewal for a second
two-year term. The appointment is for the academic years 2000-01 and 2001-02, and
begins July 1. The application deadline is February 1.
Over the past decade there has been a rising incidence of outbreaks of meningitis reported on college campuses. This has prompted the American College Health Association (ACHA) to recommend that college students "consider vaccination to reduce their risk for potentially fatal meningococcal disease." There is a vaccine available against meningococcal disease that is 85 percent effective against many, but not all, of the subgroups of meningococcal bacteria. The Student Health Service is following the ACHA recommendation of making vaccination and information available to students. Students can make an appointment for vaccination by calling (831) 459-2500. Immunization costs $65, plus the injection fee. Most health insurance, including the campus undergraduate and graduate plans, does not cover the cost of this preventive measure, but charges can be billed to the student's university account. For more information on meningococcal disease, go to the American College Health Association Web site.
Nominations for Regents' Professors and Lecturers sought
The Committee on Regents' Professors and Lecturers is soliciting nominations for the 2000-01 academic year. The program was established to bring distinguished men and women from nonacademic careers to the university. The program has limited funding for stipends and travel only. Sponsoring units should be prepared to cover other expenses such as housing, transportation, etc., during the individual's visit to campus. Regents' Lecturer appointments may be for two weeks or more, but less than a full quarter; Regents' Professors may serve for a quarter and the individual may be assigned a course to teach. Full information on the program is in the Academic Personnel Manual. Nominations should originate from academic units rather than individuals and should provide detailed information on how the nominee would be utilized. The deadline for submission of nominations to the committee is November 30. Requests for additional information should be directed to Linda Mueller, Academic Human Resources, at (831) 459-4689, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
