Psychology students, professors receive awards
The Mid-American Association for Behavior Analysis recently honored four UW-Eau Claire psychology majors and two psychology professors with awards for scientific research at the MABA meeting in Kalamazoo, Mich.
     
Seniors Mikhail Koffarnus, Katie Solberg and Cassie Welch and assistant professor of psychology Kevin Klatt earned first place with their presentation titled "The Effects of Deprivation and Satiation on Preferences of Typical Children."
     The group explained that the amount of exposure children have to a particular toy before an assessment is made should be taken into consideration when making the assessment.
     Junior Carla Lagorio and associate professor of psychology Gregory Madden were awarded third place for their project "Preference Between Equivalent Unit Priced Alternatives."
     Through their research, Lagorio and Madden found that consumers show a preference between equally priced commodities — a finding not predicted by the economic demand law.
     The four students were competing primarily with graduate students from other schools. According to Madden, only one other poster at the conference was presented by undergraduates.
     UW-Eau Claire's Office of Research and Sponsored Programs provided support for the research and travel costs for the presentations.

Information from the INS
The U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service has provided UW-Eau Claire with notification of new information for non-citizens related to travel, address change notification requirement, and registration requirements for males over the age of 16 who are nationals or citizens of Iran, Iraq, Libya, Sudan or Syria who do not currently hold U.S. permanent residency.
     Please pass this information along to faculty and staff in your department or unit. Please also post this notice.
     Thank you for your assistance in getting this information out to all non-citizens.
1. INS issues notice requiring certain non-immigrants to register by Dec. 16, 2002.
     Aliens required to register: Effective Nov. 15, 2002, all males who are over the age of 16 and who are nationals or citizens of Iran, Iraq, Libya, Sudan, or Syria who do not currently hold U.S. permanent residency are required to register with INS. To register, all described individuals must appear by Dec. 16, 2002, before an immigration officer (for those in Wisconsin, they must go to the Milwaukee INS office).Failure to register could result in deportation.
     
Information to be provided: Individuals registering under this notice must answer questions under oath before an immigration officer, present travel documents, including a passport, an Arrival-Departure Record (Form I-94) issued upon admission, and any other forms of government-issued identification; proof of residence (such as lease or rental agreement & proof of employment); and other information requested by the immigration officer. Covered aliens must also be fingerprinted and photographed by the immigration officer and must appear before an immigration officer annually to answer questions under oath.
     2. Documentation and change of address notification for all non-citizens (including permanent residents) after 9/11.
     • The Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) requires every non-citizen over the age of 18 to carry and have in possession any certificate of alien registration or alien registration receipt card issued to the non-citizen. Non-citizens are required to carry the appropriate "alien registration" documents at all times; this is especially important when traveling.
     • All non-citizens (including permanent residents) are required to notify the INS within 10 days of any change of address. The form to use in reporting an address change is AR-11 which can be downloaded from the INS Web site at
www.ins.gov/graphics/formsfee/forms/ar-11.htm.
     Failure to comply with this requirement may result in misdemeanor charges, fines, imprisonment for up to 30 days, or even deportation. INS has indicated that as a result of the government's efforts to combat terrorism, the completion of this form is now an expectation of all non-citizens. In addition, an alien who has a petition pending with INS must notify that INS office of the change of address via a letter.
