WAIVE YOUR FEES WHILE ABROAD!!!

If you are studying abroad during Maymester or Summer and will not be registering for any other classes during these sessions, you can waive your transportation, health, and Ramsey fees when you register for study abroad classes.

Registering for a class coded REGT will NOT automatically waive these fees, but will ALLOW the student to do so.   If you do not waive them, you will be charged them.

The technology fee cannot be waived. If you have any questions about waiving fees for study abroad, contact the study abroad office or the bursar.

SUMMER CREATIVITY COURSES IN EUROPE

 

Professional Development Opportunity: Summer Creativity Courses in Europe 2007. An inspiring way to learn and travel. Participants are eligible to earn 3 graduate or undergraduate university credits for taking the workshop. You can choose from Crete, Prague, Bruges, Florence, Barcelona or Dublin and Spring Workshops in New York City.

 

 Participants do exercises in sense perception, collaboration, free form writing and drawing, associative thinking, constructive daydreaming, visualization, and relaxation technique. We teach from the point of view that people are by nature creative and that creativity, like DNA, is unique to each individual. We believe that creativity is best served in a playful, nurturing, and non-competitive environment where freedom and focus go hand in hand. We concentrate on creative process rather than product and on the idea of creativity as a way of viewing and appreciating life. Most of all, like the imagination itself, the Creativity Workshop is fun. The Workshop is designed to help you and your students find new sources of inspiration, break through creative blocks, give yourself the permission and time to do creative work, and develop a daily practice to accomplish these goals. The only requirements for the Creativity Workshop are curiosity about the creative process and a sense of playfulness. Class size is limited. Reserve your space in advance. Classes meet 3.5 hours per day. You can obtain 3 University credits for taking any of these workshops. Contact us for details. Workshops in Europe start at $1,700 for tuition and 9-night accommodations. Airfares are not included: http://creatingandexploring.net Regards, Vivian Glusman Creativity Workshop Administrative Associate 1-866-217-1980 (Toll-Free) 1-212-922-1555 [log in to unmask]

SERVICE-LEARNING INTEREST GROUP

 

Please join us from 10:00-Noon, April 23, 2007 in the Center for
Teaching and Learning's North Conference room for our last
Service-Learning Interest Group meeting this academic year. Our special
guest will be Dr. Robin J. Tricoli, UGA's new Associate Provost for
Institutional Strategic Planning, who will be speaking about "Engagement
Across the University."  Dr. Tricoli will talk about what engagement
means at UGA as well as provide information on the strategic planning
process and what this means for service-learning.  Dr. Tricoli is very
interested in hearing from each of you, so this is an excellent
opportunity for conversation about the exciting work you are doing in
your departments, programs, and communities, and how such innovative
work can be fostered at UGA.

For more information about Dr. Tricoli's extensive background in
strategic planning and citizen engagement, please read the recent
Columns story announcing her appointment -

As always, the Service-Learning Interest Group is open to all faculty,
staff, students, and community partners who are interested in issues
related to service-learning and community engagement.  Please bring a
