CAHSS Friday Announcements for October 18, 2013

October 18, 2013



Please remember to check the CAHSS portal pagelet for ongoing events and announcements as they occur. Eventually, we’ll only post announcements on the portal (your myHumboldt) as they occur so you have more timely messages.



Put Names to Faces in Your Classes--Update


Actually, it’s a non-update. The pictures in PeopleSoft are from when students ordered an id card. It could have been the first week of their freshman year, it could have been last week when they had to get a new card because they lost it while fishing.


ITS has enabled a fantastic new feature for faculty and advisors. We can now view photos once we login to the faculty center. You can see photos of your classes. Just bring up the roster, click on one student's photo, then select "view all" to have it bring up in list view your students' photos.

Book Ordering Deadline—Oct 25, NEXT FRIDAY


With fall semester underway, we at the bookstore are looking towards next semester and beginning the spring adoption process! Submit your textbook requests through email or by telephone by October 25st. Submitting your course materials requirements before the October 25st deadline ensures the university is in compliance with the 2008 Higher Education Opportunity Act, which requires the full cost of a class to be available prior to registration; including all texts and supplies needed for the course. We work with several organizations, including the Department of Veterans Affairs, the Department of Rehabilitation, the campus Student Disability Resource Center to fulfill these students’ needs, with many of these students relying solely on the bookstore for their textbooks each semester. Getting your textbook requests in before the October 25th deadline directly affects our ability to help these students, as well as the campus community.       

The bookstore serves a diverse student population; each student comes in with a different need and situation. Your early submission helps us develop practical solutions for these students and your courses needs, whether it’s locating hard to find books, creating custom content such as bundles and course packets, or pursuing cost saving avenues, such as our popular rental program. 

Thank you,

The HSU Bookstore

HSU Graduate Student Film Screening


Humboldt County native, and HSU Theatre Arts graduate, Maria Matteoli will screen her award-winning, feature-length film “The Wine of Summer” at the Eureka Theatre this Saturday, October 19.


Matteoli wrote, directed and produced the film, the majority of which was shot in and around Barcelona in the fall of 2011 (along with several HSU TFD students and faculty member Jody Sekas). The film wrapped up three days of shooting right here in Humboldt County.


The film stars an international cast including Eureka’s own Bob E. Wells and Academy Award-winner Marcia Gay Harden. Ethan Peck (grandson of Gregory Peck) stars as a would-be actor whose life collides with a famous play-wright, played by Wells, in Barcelona.


For this “Director’s Cut” screening, doors will open at 6:30 p.m., and the film starts at 7 p.m., followed by a Q&A with Matteoli and members of the cast and crew. Tickets are $10 and are available online at

Serivce Learning Faculty Fellows Program—Applications due Nov 1

(This will go on the portal as a separate entry to provide the multiple page back up documentation.) The HSU Service-Learning Faculty Fellows Program has two major components for faculty engagement: 1) service-learning course development (re-designing an existing course or perhaps a new course to integrate service-learning within the identified course), and 2) participation in a four-part faculty development service-learning series of workshops. The dates of the actual training sessions will be determined by the participants themselves. One to two meetings Fall 2013 and remaining sessions will be held Spring 2014.


Funding is available for the 2013-2014 academic year. Funds are for course(s) development which integrates quality service-learning pedagogy and participation in the Service-Learning Faculty Fellows Program. The awards are in the amount of $500.00 (these are state funds- for Service-Learning) to be utilized for curriculum materials, supplies and materials to be used with students/community partners, operating expenses, and travel.


To apply for the Service-Learning Faculty Fellows Program, submit an original copy and one copy via email (to Service-Learning/ Academic Internships Advisory Committee, Center for Service Learning and Academic Internships, Gist Hall 122), and email to
