Lance'Sense of direction': College of Southern Idaho student leaders create first-ever strategic plan
TWIN FALLS - For the first time ever, College of Southern Idaho student leaders have a road map for how to improve their classmates' school experience.

The 16-member Student Senate began creating a strategic plan from scratch this fall. They wrapped up shortly after spring semester began in January.

The organization represents more than 7,000 students taking classes through the college's main Twin Falls campus, and off-campus centers in Burley, Hailey, Gooding and Jerome. They're the voice of the student body and make decisions on their behalf.

"I believe that as student senators, we're the leaders for students," said student body president Lance Teske, a Twin Falls native and Canyon Ridge High School alumnus. But "we didn't really have a sense of direction," he added, and initiatives were stagnant.

The plan - which will be in place for two to three years - is designed to help students feel more plugged in at CSI, for student clubs and organizations to have more resources and support, and for better communication with faculty members and administrators about what students need.

Copies haven't been distributed or posted online yet, but the Student Senate is working on it so students and community members can view the document. The new plan creates a foundation for future student leaders, too.

"When the next Senate comes in, they'll modify it, and continue to grow and develop it," Teske said. Right now, "we're hitting the reset button every time there's a new Senate elected."

CSI's dean of students Jason Ostrowski and vice president of student services Michelle Schutt weren't available Friday to comment on the plan.

The plan includes three core themes: students, working with clubs and councils, and building relationships with faculty and administration. A team of student leaders will be devoted to each theme.

Student leaders will streamline the process of creating a club and getting assistance, and will talk with their peers to get feedback about their needs - whether academic or campus life - to pass along to faculty members and administrators.

And "things already offered on campus," Teske said, "will be clearer and better."

DiversityFREE Cultural Training Class Now Available

My coworker at Purdue University created this training for the last year, and I'm excited that it's now offered as a MOOC for free. 

Learn how to create a more inclusive world
Many things contribute to an individual's identity, including race, ethnicity, gender, age, appearance, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, education, and political beliefs. These things, and more, are what make each of us different. So how can we learn to embrace these differences, and celebrate them? Or to put it in a different way - how can we explore and welcome diversity?
This course will help you develop your knowledge and understanding of diversity, equipping you to create more inclusive and open environments that are welcome to all.
What topics will you cover?
  • Phases of diversity dexterity
  • Attitudes, skills, and knowledge supporting diversity
  • Unconscious biases
  • Ethnocentric and ethno-relative mindsets
  • Elements of diversity and inclusion
Here is the link: https://www.futurelearn.com/courses/diversity-inclusion-awareness/1 I have signed up to take it. I think it's a great opportunity for learning about diversity and inclusion.

When: March 3, 2018 (Saturday)

Time commitment: 4-5 hours (breakfast, lunch and gift of thanks will be provided)

Why do it? Judging is an interesting way to connect with students, support your community, and learn about history! Come and be inspired by Idaho students!

SustainabilityLights Out for Earth Hour and Recycling Numbers for the College
Chris Anderson wanted to let everyone know about the 10th Anniversary for Earth Hour! Earth Hour is a world-wide movement that is held annually to encourage everyone to turn off all non-essential electric lights for a just one hour. This event happens March 24, 2018 and will be at 8:30 pm to 9:30 MST. This is a commitment to the planet in a moment to conserve energy and to enjoy an hour of reduced light pollution. Currently 187 countries and territories participate in this event. If you want any more information search Earth hour on the W.W.W. or just check with our very own resident expert Chris over at the Planetarium.

Over the years we have been keeping track of the numbers of how much we have been recycling here at the college of Southern Idaho. The chart below shows how much we improved our efforts of keeping items out of the land fill and giving second life by recycling products. 665,560 pounds or 332.78 tons have been kept out going directly to the land fill giving it an extended life and giving our planet's resources a second chance.

Your CSI Employee Wellbeing Program is committed to everyone having a pain-free workplace! That's why we offer FREE ergonomic assessments provided by the Center for Physical Rehabilitation (CPR) to employees experiencing pain, numbness, or other general discomfort at your desk or other type of work situation. 
Your first step is to share your issue with your supervisor to let them know of the problem and start a discussion about changes that could improve your situation. If you agree to continue with an assessment, either one of you may contact your Wellbeing Coordinator by email to  jheatwole@csi.edu  with your best contact information and we will have CPR schedule an appointment with you directly. Once you have met with a member of their team, please share your results with your supervisor to discuss next steps. Usually easy changes can effect a quick and helpful remedy.

February 21 - 24 & February 28 - March 3
7:30 p.m.
CSI Fine Arts Theater

Once again, the plays of William Shakespeare give us insight and commentary on events in our own culture. Join the CSI Theater Department as we explore the roles of gender in our culture, and how they relate to mercy, hypocrisy, and the abuse of power. The city of Venice is one overrun by brothels and a loose set of morals. The Duke, unwilling to use his authority to institute change departs, leaving Angelo in charge. Angelo, initially reluctant, soon starts to reinstate older, harsher laws to force morality on the city and close the brothels. The changes highlight the hypocrisy of the ruling elite, and the temptation to abuse power. Tickets: $10/adults or $5/seniors or students. CSI students are free.

Registration Information

Each year the Herrett Center for Arts & Science hosts around 100 third, fourth, and fifth graders for a Science Camp-In. This year we have changed our Science Camp-In to our S.T.E.A.M. Camp-In. During this event, participants will travel around campus to attend workshops in the fields of science, technology, engineering, art, and math. Participants also have the opportunity to visit the Herrett Center's planetarium and observatory, as well as participate in other fun activities. Snacks will be provided in the evening and after a night of fun and learning, participants will spend the night sleeping in the galleries! A light breakfast will be served in the morning before participants go home.

Registration for S.T.E.A.M. Camp-In is now open! The S.T.E.A.M. Camp-In will be $50 per participant. Registration is on a first come, first served basis and participants must have a completed registration form and a received payment in order to hold a position in the camp-in. More information about the Camp-In can be found here: http://herrett.csi.edu/exploreherrett/
