Volunteers sought to help with move-out

As more than 7,400 students prepare to move out of the University Residence Halls, the Division of University Housing is asking for volunteers to help residents and their families say goodbye sustainably to items they no longer need. From May 6 – 13, recycling/donation locations will be located near residence halls to allow convenient access to donation and recycling opportunities. In 2016, more than 170 volunteers provided more than 600 hours of staffing at donation/recycling locations. You can sign up for shifts online, or email Breana Nehls at or call 608-262-5537.

Applications due soon for Blend@UW summer sessions

Blend@UW offers one-week sessions in May, June and August to provide instructors with the knowledge and peer support necessary to design blended courses that inspire active student engagement with content and facilitate deeper learning. Faculty and instructors can apply online by May 5, 2017, for these sessions, which are offered at no cost. The benefits of blended learning extend to students, instructors and the entire university. A recent Blend@UW participant noted: “By blending (my course), I have carved out time to work with my students to understand how I want them to think about the material, and we have meaningful discussions wherein they are creating their own understanding.”
