Leading Edge Newsletter - December 2004
Volume 9 - Issue 5
The Student Senate meeting this Sunday, Dec. 5, will be at 4:30 pm in the Union Ballroom West. If you have a pending SAC budget request this will be the meeting in which it will be discussed. An automatic consent of SAC allocations is done upon the approval of the Senate Agenda, unless a senator pulls a group from the package. One person from your group should be in attendance to answer any questions a senator might have. The budget portion of the agenda may be passed without any discussion. Once the budgets are passed you are free to leave or stay and watch the rest of the meeting.


Starting December 6, 2004 UWM will implement the PantherProf web tool to help students learn from other students about their course experiences. This is a communication tool for students, not an evaluation tool for faculty and teaching staff. It will not replace the current course evaluation process. It does replace Pick-A-Prof. All enrolled students will receive an email inviting them to voluntarily complete the PantherProf online survey for any and all of their courses. They will be able to input responses up until December 17, 2004. The site will operate like PAWS in that when students sign in, all of their courses are highlighted with a survey link. Following the final date for posting grades, reports will be available to anyone with a UWM login. If you have any questions e-mail pantherprof@uwm.edu. More information can be found on the SA website www.sa.uwm.edu.

Join an informal group of student leaders and staff who provide programming and events to students on campus. The group meets bimonthly to share ideas and information about upcoming events, solicit support and co-sponsorship for programs and plan programs collaboratively. The group also maintains a reflector for sharing information. The next meeting of the programming@uwm.edu group will be THURSDAY, DECEMBER 9 at 12:30pm, in the Union, Room 340. This will be a brown bag lunch, to include information sharing and planning for spring, 05 and planning Game Night. Please join us! For more information about the group, please contact Cindy Petrites at the Women's Resource Center at petrites@uwm.edu or 229-2852.
