Annual Institute Reminders -- THIS FRIDAY AND SATURDAY!!!

The CAES Annual Institute is this Friday and Saturday. We have a few important helpful details and reminders for parking, navigating the campus, and locations of events below.
  • It is a bit of a walk from the parking lot to the Campus Center. Here are some more specific directions:
    • Walk through the Dutch Commons and cross over W Center Drive where you'll see a set of stairs. Go up the stairs.
    • At the top of the stairs, you'll see the Social Science building in front of you and the Writing Center on the right hand side. Turn right and continue straight until you reach the campus center. There is a fountain in front of the campus center. Go in the campus center doors and the ballroom is at the top of the stairs.
  • The Friday morning board meeting will be held in the Campus Center Rm. 307.
  • Please bring things for the Emporium.

As we approach the time for the Annual CAES Institute, I wanted to remind everyone of the various scholarship opportunities that are available for the Institute. 
THE DONNA CADWELL SCHOLARSHIP FOR THE ANNUAL INSTITUTE is awarded to a first time CAES Institute attendee or to an attendee who has not attended in the past 5 years to defray the Institute expenses. Up to $250 may be awarded annually to each recipient and up to four recipients may be selected.

The registration fee will be reimbursed for up to ten recipients. Preference is given to the first applications received, new attendees, and CAES members. You may reapply every two years. The recipient(s) must agree to attend the entire conference, including the Banquet and CAES Business Lunch.
We are also still looking for nominations for the following awards:
