Deadline for New Course Proposals for Spring 2018

The deadline for proposals for new courses to be offered in the Spring 2018 Semester is Friday, September 1. APSC must take those course proposals to the October Faculty Meeting in order to secure approval for their offering. The new course proposal form, available as a Word document on the committee Website at (http://www.dickinson.edu/info/20061/academic_program_and_standards_committee/771/curriculum_revisions) should be completed and returned to Bonnie Lehman (lehman@dickinson.edu) no later than September 1. An electronic copy should be sent as an e-mail attachment to apsc@dickinson.edu.
Faculty may experiment with a new course by requesting that it be considered a "one-time-only" offering. Such courses require only the approval of APSC, not the entire faculty. In order to give the Committee sufficient information about these courses, however, faculty should fill in the pertinent information on the course proposal form, marking "one-time-only" prominently on the top of the form.

College Farm and Sustainability

Barn Concert at the College Farm

Join us at the College Farm for an intimate barn concert on 8/25 with Society of Broken Souls, a Folk Noir songwriting duo of multi-instrumentalists. Dennis James and Lauryn Shapter perform their own brand of American Roots Music and write unflinching songs that confront our shared, raw humanity while celebrating the beautiful mosaic of the human experience. Having performed in 25 states from coast to coast over the last decade, their live show features seamless harmony vocals and a wide array of instruments and sounds. From stripped down, bare-bones acoustic arrangements to a denser and edgier electric sound, their songs invite the listener to walk through the fire with them — and to find freedom, strength and courage on the other side.

Suggested donations between $10-$20 are most welcome with opportunities to make a contribution at the event. For more information on Broken Souls, please go to https://www.societyofbrokensouls.com/. Music will commence at 7:30pm. More details to come - STAY TUNED!

General Announcements

Out@Dickinson - List of LGBTQ+ Identified FAS

The Office of LGBTQ Services has been compiling a list of “out” faculty, staff, and administrators to showcase on our website: http://www.dickinson.edu/homepage/997/out_dickinson

If you are interested in being added to the Out@Dickinson list of LGBTQ+ identified faculty, staff, and administrators, please complete the following form: https://forms.office.com/Pages/ResponsePage.aspx?id=VbAyYrl2E0ybiLVirn22-4r47NfNlQNIgNDsk4E_FtpUREEyUUw3V0FKUk1ZTVlVNjRNOVcyMUhJWS4u

While appreciate our allies, this list is meant to be for those who identify as LGBTQ+.

The goal of this campaign is to provide increased visibility and awareness of LGBTQ+ FAS on campus.

A few notes…
1. An individual must personally elect to be added to the list. No one will be added by Office staff unless we receive a specific request from an individual.
2. FAS will be asked to describe their identities in their own words.
3. This list will be maintained on the Office of LGBTQ Services website and, thus, could be found via search engines such as Google.
4. There will be a note on the website that this list is not exhaustive of all FAS who may identify as LGBTQ+ and individuals may elect not to be added for various personal reasons of which we will respect and honor.

Tune in Friday! Professors Boback and Zwemer on Discovery Channel

Man-Eating Python, a one-hour special premiering Friday, Aug. 25, at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Discovery Channel, will feature biology professors Scott Boback and Chuck Zwemer conducting an experiment to demonstrate the extraordinary stealth, speed and power of pythons as they attack prey.

Produced by Icon Films, which reached out to Boback and Zwemer—published experts in the field of constriction—the special looks at the recent death of a young man in Sulawesi, Indonesia, whose body was discovered in the belly of a massive python.

Boback and Zwemer test the constricting power of a 23-foot reticulated python—the descendent of a wild-caught python from Sulawesi. The results amazed even Boback, whose research has debunked myths about the way constrictors kill their prey and proven that pythons are capable of consuming multiple mammals in a short period of time.
