2015 GPPA Chicago-Kent Sophomore Entry (6/1 application deadline)

The Office of Special Scholarship Program is seeking applications for the GPPA Kent College of Law program. Students who are completing their freshman year and going into the sophomore year at UIC can apply.

The link to the application: https://uofi.uic.edu/fb/sec/1081171

Students in the program must complete a bachelor’s degree at UIC prior to entering the Chicago-Kent College of Law.

The IIT Chicago-Kent College of Law’s history dates to 1888. The law school developed from the merger of the Chicago College of Law and the Kent College of Law. A 1969 merger made it part of the Illinois Institute of Technology. The law school has earned many accolades including being ranked 6th nationally in Trial Advocacy and 10th in Intellectual Property by U.S. News & World Report (March 2014). It is also considered a Best Value private law school by the National Jurist (October 2013), and its faculty ranks 52nd in the nation based on scholarly impact (Sisk et al., 2012). The bar passage rate for Chicago-Kent law graduates in 2013 was 93%. For more information about Chicago-Kent College of Law visit http://www.kentlaw.iit.edu/

We are excited to offer this prestigious pathway to a career in law to our students.

Additional requirements for the program apply. Conditions of Acceptance for the program can be viewed at http://gppa.uic.edu/current-students/conditions-of-acceptance/

SSI Credit Accumulation Initiative Information Sessions being held next week at 3:00 p.m. on May 20 and May 21

The Student Success Initiative (SSI) Credit Accumulation Initiative is hosting two information sessions next week:

Wednesday, May 20, 2015
3:00-4:00 p.m.
Location: Lincoln Hall 210

OR

Thursday, May 21, 2015
3:00-4:00 p.m.
Location: Lincoln Hall 210

Topic:

As part of the SSI Implementation project (studentsuccess.uic.edu), a project team has been working on the question of student “credit accumulation” for the past few months. The project team was charged with addressing this issue: students who do graduate at UIC tend not to graduate in four years, even though nearly every major has an academic map that articulates a pathway to do so. Clearly, if students take fewer than fifteen credit hours per semester, it is impossible for that student to graduate in four years. In Fall 2013, for instance, nearly a third of first-time full-time students attempted fewer than 15 credit hours. There are academic, social, and financial implications of students not efficiently completing their degree.

At this meeting, Tom Moss, the Project Team Leader, will discuss the team’s initial findings and preview a campaign to encourage students for whom it is appropriate to attempt at least fifteen credit hours per semester.

The Project Team includes: Eileen Doran, Lillye Hart, Elsa Soto, Philip Vasquez, and Josephine Volpe.

Please RSVP at the following link for the SSI Credit Accumulation Initiative Information Sessions being held next week:  http://go.uic.edu/ssicreditaccumulation.


ALEKS Math Placement Fall 2015 Update

UIC will no longer pay for learning modules or math placement test retakes for students in placing in Math 075/090/118; however, students will still have the opportunity to take the test twice.

Students can take the ALEKS (Math) test twice. There will be a charge for the second test. The student must pay $30 for the learning module.  Students placing in Math 075/090/118 will have access after reaching 70%  mastery of the Learning Module and can retake the test after paying $10.  Students placing in Math 121/125/165 or STAT 101 are also required to pay the $30 for the learning module but will have access to the retake by paying the $10.00 fee without reaching a specific mastery level.

Please contact Florencio Diaz (fdiaz4@uic.edu) if you have questions.

Academic Advising and Social Justice: Privilege, Diversity, and Student Success NACADA Webinar Follow-up Discussion

Wednesday, April 29th 12:00pm to 1:00pm
2550 University Hall (UH)

Webinar Overview (more information is available here: http://tinyurl.com/lapgp6f): Academic advisors and advising administrators must understand social identities in order to identify the challenges students face when interacting with various campus systems. However, advising professionals are often untrained in dealing with issues of privilege and diversity. In this Web Event, sponsored by the NACADA Diversity Committee and led by NACADA Technology in Advising Commission Chair Julie Larsen, our panelists will share information and strategies that can help advisors form stronger relationships with students, identify specific challenges and roadblocks facing students, and create individualized solutions to increase success and retention. In addition, they will discuss ideas for re-conceptualizing advising around issues of social justice which can foster both the ability and the responsibility to be voices for change at our institutions.

Feel free to bring your lunch and light refreshments will also be provided.

For more information or questions, please contact Melissa Tag (mtag@uic.edu).

Lavender Graduation recognizes that barriers exist for LGBTQ people and celebrates the academic and personal achievements of LGBTQ and Allied students in undergraduate, graduate and professional programs at UIC.
