Reserve a Dedicated Study Space on Campus



Need somewhere on campus to study, do homework, or log into your virtual or online course?

SEATS is an online software tool that reserves a dedicated, quiet, and comfortable space for you to use on campus. Instead of wandering around looking for space, we encourage you to use the SEAT registration app. On-site registration is available, but we encourage reserving your seat ahead of time.

Visit weber.edu/coronavirus/take-a-seat.html to learn more and reserve a space at either our Ogden or Davis campuses.

Walker Institute Statement on Violent Protest



Violence and destruction is never acceptable when protesting. What we've seen starting last year, and culminating last Wednesday at the US Capitol, is an egregious display of dangerous actions that should not be repeated. At the Walker Institute we will continue to promote civic education and constructive involvement in the political process, which can (and often does) include peaceful protests. We will also continue to foster a politically engaged campus, which includes respect for the vibrant political diversity on the left and the right, demonstrated by our students, faculty, and staff. We invite you to read the Op-Ed linked below and let's all focus this new year on building something positive that will create a lasting legacy.

Nominations for John A. Lindquist Award



JOHN A. LINDQUIST AWARD

Spring 2021

EXPLANATION OF AWARD

The John A. Lindquist Award is given annually to a current Weber State University faculty or staff member who has demonstrated sustained and outstanding commitment to mentoring WSU students in learning through community engagement.  It recognizes university-community partnerships in support of students’ learning and honors John A. Lindquist’s devotion to education and community.

Learning through community engagement is a dynamic and collaborative process wherein students immerse themselves in situational problems of a social, economic or environmental nature.  They consider possible outcomes and create potential solutions that benefit communities.   As students apply their skills, knowledge and research to community issues, they in turn develop civic leadership.  Frequently, they are models of how an education can improve and sustain the well-being of individuals in their communities.

CRITERIA

The recipient of the John A. Lindquist Award must demonstrate that she or he has provided an excellent education to WSU students and has addressed needs in surrounding communities.   

Describe the faculty or staff member’s accomplishments according to the following criteria:

  1.          The nominee has demonstrated sustained (minimum of five years) and outstanding commitment to mentoring WSU students in learning through community engagement.
  2.          The nominee’s Community Engaged Learning projects have made a demonstrable impact on both the student and the community. Actions taken are making a positive difference on the campus, in the community, regionally, and beyond.
  3.          The nominee has succeeded in making a sustained, long-term commitment to campus and community service as well as evidence of consistent positive performance reviews. 
  4.          The nominee has used sound pedagogy that combines research, theory, community action, self-reflection and assessment in planning learning objectives and community engagement activities for students. (This criterion is primarily applicable to faculty nominees.)
  5.          The nominee’s projects involve a strong relationship with the community partner(s) based on a foundation of mutual ownership and commitment and address complex and important community issues.
  6.          The nominee has been able to integrate community engagement with her or his own continued research and teaching.  Teaching may be through a mentoring relationship or in the classroom.  Preference will be given to those individuals who have shown evidence of embracing the institution’s commitment to community engaged learning through association with the Center for Community Engaged Learning. 

In summary, the committee will evaluate candidate packets against the following criteria:

  • Breadth of community engaged work geographically -- locally or internationally
  • Longevity in community engaged learning
  • Sustained and varied community partnerships 
  • Demonstrated impact on community members and organizations
  • Work with CCEL or other promotion of CEL among faculty and staff
  • Demonstrated impact on student learning and their relationship to a complex and diverse world 
  • Reflection on his/her own transformation as a faculty/staff member

AWARD

$8,000 cash (less benefits and withholding taxes)

RESPONSIBILITY OF RECIPIENT

The recipient of the John A. Lindquist Award will give a presentation to faculty, staff, and students regarding his/her work with WSU students and the community.  This presentation is expected to occur within a year of having received the award.  Additionally, the recipient must continue to be employed at WSU for a minimum of one year after receiving the award.

NOMINATION PROCESS

Submit via email a 1-2 page letter of nomination that addresses the award criteria listed above to Dana Gibson (danagibson@weber.edu) no later than January 29, 2021.

If a nominee accepts the nomination, he or she will be responsible for submitting the following additional information to Dana Gibson (danagibson@weber.edu) by February 16, 2021:

  1. A cover letter (maximum 2 pages) addressing the award criteria and reflecting what community engagement means to the nominee
  2. A 2-3 page resume reflecting a community engagement focus
  3. Three 1 to 2-page letters of reference. One reference should be a community member with whom the nominee has partnered to mentor WSU students through community engaged learning.  One reference should be a student (current or former) who has personally benefited, or been involved with, the person being nominated. Students’ letters should include how community engagement enhanced their learning and reflection in meaningful ways. The final reference should be a colleague who is familiar with the work of the nominee. 

A selection committee consisting of two college representatives from Academic Affairs, the dean of students, provost, vice president for Student Affairs, Associate Provost for High Impact Programs, Executive Director of Student Affairs Strategic Initiatives, Student Association vice president for service, and two community partners will be appointed by the offices of Academic Affairs and Student Affairs.  A member of the Lindquist family will also serve on the committee.  The selection committee will review the nomination materials and select the award recipient.

Virtual Seminar — Observational Astronomy: Socially Distant Since 13.7 Billion B.C.E.



 

Presented by Dr. Stacy Palen
Physics Department, Weber State University 

Date:  Wednesday, January 20, 2021
Time:  1:30 pm - 2:20 pm MDT


Join Zoom Meeting:
https://weber.zoom.us/j/99165662493?pwd=Ui9CcWs3UWJDVkROMDhDcXJRcVZYQT09
Meeting ID: 991 6566 2493

Abstract:

This has been a tough year for everyone, and astronomers are no exception.  However, there are some bright spots!  For years, I have been struggling to make an Observational Astronomy course match up to the dreams that I had for it.  I will talk about how the shut-down last March, and the push to prepare to go all online in the Fall of 2020, finally led to the maturation of the Observational Astronomy course as a focused course for non-specialists.  This involved working with a whole host of people all around the world, to quickly solve a huge number of problems over the summer, and even while the course was in session.  I will discuss the equipment, the software, the assignments, the compromises and the successes that made possible a course that brought 10 students from "zero" to "observer" in eight short weeks, and resulted in four publication-quality papers.  Several of these students are now working at home, gaining experience as Telescope Operators for the KTP Observatory.
