Davis Library plotter and copier/fax changing locations

On Wednesday morning, November 21, the plotter located in Wilson Lab will be moved to the Davis Library public printer room 242. To make room for the plotter, the copier/fax in room 242 is moving downstairs to public printer room 142.  

The plotter relocation will alleviate the noise and disruption in Wilson Lab caused by the plotter printing. ITS Service Desk student consultants have been trained to perform basic plotter maintenance and troubleshooting. DLINQ interns are still available for application-specific support and training.

Coro Fellowship in Public Affairs

The Coro Fellows Program develops emerging leaders to work and lead across different sectors by equipping them with knowledge, skills, and networks to accelerate positive change.

One of the highest-rated leadership programs in the country, the Coro Fellows Program is a nine-month, full-time graduate-level fellowship that prepares young professionals for effective leadership in all areas of civic life. Fellows are equipped with Coro’s unique, hands-on leadership training, built on understanding complexity and solving problems across traditional boundaries. If you aspire to serve the common good, to connect people across divides, and to tackle some of the most daunting challenges our society faces, the Coro Fellowship in Public Affairs will give you the tools you need to make an impact.
Through the Fellowship program, Fellows learn by doing, gaining real job experience on project assignments through placements in a variety of sectors: government, business, political campaigns, and nonprofit organizations. In weekly seminars, the twelve Fellows develop high-level skills in self-awareness, group dynamics, critical thinking and decision-making. During Issue Weeks, Fellows work as a cohort to take a deep dive into a single topic, exploring critical and challenging dilemmas in public policy. Utilizing the city as a classroom, Fellows gain hands-on experience and a deeper understanding of complex public issues, organizations, and people. Fellows also benefit from a national alumni network of over 10,000 whose members include influential leaders from all sectors.

The application deadline is January 9, 2019. The application requires 3 essays, 2 letters of recommendation, and official transcripts.  So it’s probably a good idea to get started soon.
