The Academic Staff Professional Development Program deadline is Dec. 1.
The Network for Excellence in Teaching Grants deadline is Dec. 1.
Guidelines for writing program proposals are available from Human Sciences and Services 161, by calling 836-3405 or online on the University Research home page.
Faculty/Academic Staff Forums
The Office of University Research will present the final Faculty/Academic Staff Forum for fall semester this week. The program will be held from 12:10 to 12:50 p.m. Wednesday in the Presidents Room of Davies Center. Bring a brown bag lunch or tray.

Household Moving Services
The contract with Metcalf-Mayflower for household moving services has been extended through Aug. 10, 1998. Employees and their immediate families are eligible for substantially reduced rates and additional services under this contract. Additional information is available from the Accounts Payable Office, 36-4528, or by accessing the UW System Financial Administration Web pages at www.uwsa.edu/fadmin/travel.htm
Just a reminder that holiday decorations can be purchased from state funds only for general reception areas for students and the public. These areas have been identified as lobbies in the Fine Arts Center (outside Gantner Concert Hall), University Centers, residence halls, Recreation, Health Services and the campus grounds.
Summer Orientation Advising Positions
The Dean of Students Office announces several part-time positions for faculty advisers in the university's 1998 Summer Orientation Program. Only current members of the faculty and academic staff will be considered for these positions. Faculty and staff members who have a commitment to advising and a sincere interest in working with first-year students are encouraged to apply.
One-day orientation sessions for entering freshmen will be held during the first four weeks of the eight-week summer session. Training sessions for advisers will be held June 15-16. Additional one-day programs will be held in August 1998 and January 1999.
Applications and related information may be obtained from Mary K. Ryan-Miller, associate dean of students, Schofield 240, Ext. 36-2003 (e-mail: RYANMK). Initial applications are due Monday, Dec. 1, 1997. Applicants may be asked to provide additional materials during the selection process.
Deadline for Scheduling Distance Education
The WONDER consortium requires that any summer or fall 1998 offering utilizing the WONDER technology be submitted by Dec. 1, 1997. Until additional facilities are available, WONDER offerings must originate from the Distance Education Classrooms (OL 1132 and NURS 114) and the conference room (OL 1130). For these reasons, it is necessary to implement an earlier UW-Eau Claire deadline for receipt of summer and fall 1998 requests for scheduling of the Distance Education Classrooms. That deadline is noon Wednesday, Nov. 26, 1997.
Any requests for offerings that utilize WONDER should be submitted by that date. Although requests to use the room for other delivery methods will still be accepted after that date, the room may already have been heavily scheduled for WONDER (offerings that have been confirmed with other institutions and thus cannot be changed).
