PC on Wednesday at 7 pm, 103 GPB
Email agenda topics by Tuesday night by midnight.
EX com Friday Sept 29 5pm, Starbucks on Center!
Run for the Homeless- Melanie Schoeppe will have more information at the next PC.
Ideas that came up from the dyads:
Transition Binders/ wisdom sheets
Overlap of training, sufficient training, consistency, role playing, awareness of resources, shadowing, clear description of roles, advice on what works and what does not work.
Networking with more groups on campus
Transition committee for departing core faculty members
Steinbach is retiring/cutting back on his responsibilities for JMP program, after next semester he will no longer teach Wednesday class. Make a list of what has previously been done in Wednesday class, what worked and what did not work. Next semester Steinbach will bring in the new faculty member to transition them.
Should we form a committee to take over the responsibilities of Steinbach (in general not just in regards to Wednesday class), to preserve the knowledge about Suitcase that Steinbach has? He has been around in Suitcase for a long time and is the first person we turn to with questions regarding clinic. Would this be temporary or long term?
Will he be staying on as an advisor?
Transitioning the new faculty member will be essential!
How will the new faculty member be chosen?
JMP Board- Robert Ratner, Alan Schwartzberg, others, they are the reason why our class is not just a decal.
Jessea is affiliated with JMP (570 University); deals with class administration stuff, reserves room, deals with enrollment for class.
Faculty Advisors- Schwartzberg and Dr. Steinbach
Admin, Class (including newsletter), General, Youth, Women, SPEAC (Student Project for Education and Advocacy), SHARE
Wednesday class is where the people who run Thursday class learn small group facilitation skills from Dr. Steinbach
All of these issues can be topics for discussion at PC! Email if you want to talk about anything specifically.
Dyad- effective leadership! What makes a good leader?
