Dear Respective Department Heads / Coordinators,



I placed this e-mail note below on *Messenger* yesterday, but realize many may opt not to read and/or give minimal attention to *Messenger*.



Please forward this to your faculty advisors.



Thanks.



Steve Hicks





Dear Faculty Advisor,



Good day to you!



I have included a link below we crafted last spring to help some faculty advisors who are new to advising at NSU. I sent this to all department heads in March ‘13 and ACE has used this resource continually. It is a good guide to use prior to and during advising sessions.

Additionally, I have pasted the 2013-2014 Academic Advising Handbook link below. It has a couple important updates from last spring:



http://ace.nsula.edu/assets/assets/AcademicAdvisingHandbook-2013-2014.pdf <http://ace.nsula.edu/assets/assets/AcademicAdvisingHandbook-2013-2014.pdf>



* Adult Learners – Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) –see page 9.

* Change in core social / behavioral sciences (6 credits still required, but all 6 may now be at the 1000-level) – see page 18.

* Course equivalencies between NSU core and Louisiana Scholars’ College core – see page 20.



As always, feel free to contact me if you have any questions.



Thank you for your commitment to student success.



Sincerely,



Steve Hicks

Executive Director

Subject: Faculty Forum and Sr. Day Thanks
Hi All,

First, I want to say thanks for all your great work this weekend with Senior Day. I spoke with many parents and students both during the day and at the Football game, and they were impressed with all that Northwestern has to offer. Several were delighted to have gotten to spend time with Department Heads and Faculty on Friday and Saturday. At Parents’ Panel, many indicated that their students had really enjoyed the day’s events. Thank you for making these folks feel so welcome.



I’d like to have a Faculty Forum this week at 2:00 on Wednesday, location tba to share some information from ULS and Regents.



Again, thanks so much and see you soon,

Lisa

Subject: Travel to campus
All,
If you cannot safely get to campus due to street flooding, please do not jeopardize your safety. Please work with your supervisor in order to submit appropriate civil leave if you are delayed getting to campus.
Thanks,
Lisa

Subject: Caspari entrance
Hi All,
Just spoke to University Police, Caspari Drive, near the Natatorium and the Student Union is flooding. The parking lots behind the Union/University Police are accessible, but Caspari cannot be used as a through street at this point. Please use another campus entrance unless you work/teach in buildings around that area.
Thanks,
Lisa
