SIUE Selected as Peace Corps Site

2017-04-25 09:55:00 SIUE.edu

Southern Illinois University Edwardsville is now a Peace Corps Prep site. This partnership agreement, signed by Chancellor Randy Pembrook on behalf of SIUE and the U.S. Peace Corps, is available only to students at participating partner schools.

 “This program provides an opportunity for students at SIUE to contribute to international peace, social justice and the development of full human potential,” said Mary Weishaar, executive director of International Affairs. “It supports and helps develop the SIUE values of citizenship, excellence, inclusion, integrity and wisdom.” 

Peace Corps Prep helps prepare undergraduate students in four core competencies – sector specific skills, foreign language competency, intercultural competence, and professional savvy and leadership – that are key to fieldwork as a Peace Corps volunteer. Beginning fall 2017, undergraduate students can apply for the program through the study abroad advisor in the SIUE Office of International Affairs. 

Peace Corps Prep creates an individualized map for students to build these competencies within existing coursework and with additional hands-on experiences. After completion of the program, students receive a certificate from the Peace Corps, which could add a competitive edge when applying for Peace Corps service. 

“Students with an interest in the Peace Corps will find that many of the requirements for the certificate can be met by courses they are already taking or service work they are already doing,” said Kim Browning, study abroad advisor.

Completion of the program does not delay student progress toward graduation. Sorin Nastasia, program director for International Studies, and Huaibo Xin, program director for Public Health, will serve in the faculty advisory committee for the program.

For more information, contact Kim Browning at 618-650-2419 or kbrowni@siue.edu.

Historic Scale Model of Campus Plan on Display in Lovejoy Library

2017-04-25 09:35:00 SIUE.edu

University Archivist Steve Kerber admires the original scale model of the SIUE campus on display in Lovejoy Library.The original scale model of the SIUE campus is available for viewing on the first floor of Lovejoy Library through the spring commencement ceremonies being held Friday and Saturday, May 6-7. The model features the intended design and appearance of the Edwardsville core campus, and was on exhibit during the campus groundbreaking in 1963.

The display coincides with the upcoming presentation of an SIUE Distinguished Service Award to Gyo Obata, the external architect of SIUE, during the Spring 2017 commencement ceremonies.

University Archivist Steve Kerber, and Library and Information Services Reference and Instruction Specialist Tiffany Dvorak, have organized the display that also includes support materials detailing the architectural history of SIUE.

“The model is amazingly true to the eventual construction of the campus,” Kerber said. “It shows the original buildings in counter-clockwise order, the manner in which they were built. It emphasizes the unique and amazing accomplishment that was the creation of SIUE.”

“Because we get so much foot traffic in the center of the Library, this display offers the community an opportunity to become familiar with its campus history,” he added. “We welcome visitors to stop by to see this historic piece.”

Obata will not be present at commencement, but will be featured in a video produced by University Marketing and Communications. Obata is a St. Louis native and a co-founder of HOK, the largest United States-based architecture-engineering firm.
