Spring 2020: FW5110 Climate Change and Management

We have some outreach items for the FW5110 Special Topics class, Climate Change and Management in Great lakes Forested Ecosystems, to share with you.  I’ve attached a flyer about the course, which also includes a link to a webpage with more information (https://forestadaptation.org/fw5510).
This class provides an overview of climate science, effects on forested ecosystems, and adaptation options for natural resource management in the Great Lakes region.  The Northern Institute of Applied Climate Science climate adaptation framework will be used to develop climate change adaptation plans for real-world forested ecosystems, and you will learn how to communicate these climate change projects and plans with others.
Thanks so much,
Kailey Marcinkowski

Apply to Become a University Innovation Fellow

Students interested in becoming agents of change are invited to apply to become University Innovation Fellows! UIF students work on improving the innovation and entrepreneurial ecosystem here at Michigan Tech. We are looking for creative, action-oriented students who are passionate and excited about innovation, entrepreneurship, or making positive change.

We will be accepting applications starting December 10, 2018 at 8 am until January 25, 2019 at 8 pm. The application can be found here: bit.ly/mtu-uif2019. Interviews will take place from 6-8 pm on January 27, 2019.

The University Innovation Fellows is a 6-week training program administered by Stanford University’s d.school (about the commitment of a 1-2 credit class at Michigan Tech). Through the fellowship, undergraduate and graduate students from across the nation are charged with cultivating a culture of innovation and entrepreneurship at their university. Fellows gain skills, tools and the networks crucial for their mission through online training and video-conferencing sessions. Fellows hone their leadership and communication abilities and broaden their understanding of experiential learning, design thinking, interdisciplinary education and, most importantly, student innovation and entrepreneurship.

Upon completion of training, Fellows may have the opportunity to attend a 4-day retreat at Stanford University and Google. The fellowship is an opportunity to enact meaningful change while being part of a national movement. Current fellows at Michigan Tech have been working on many exciting initiatives and can’t wait to have your help in creating the future here on campus!

Last day to add/drop spring courses

The last day to add Track A and full semester courses (without instructor approval) is Friday, January 19.
Beginning Monday, January 22, students will need to have the green filled section/late add form signed and brought to the Registrar’s Office in order to be added to a full semester or Track A course or change sections.
Full semester courses may be dropped on MyMichiganTech (Banweb) through Wednesday, January 24, 5:00PM. That date is also the 100% refund date for dropping a full semester course, but with plateau tuition this would only apply if students go below fulltime or are currently part time.
