Researcher Seeking Participants
You are invited to participate in a study being conducting to better understand students’ experiences related to the Education Library renovation project. Participants will be asked to meet with the researcher for a one-on-one interview about their experiences that will take no more than 60 minutes.
Your responses will inform future decisions about the Education Library. There are no perceived risks of your participating in this study. Every participant will receive a $10 gift certificate (up to 12 participants).
Participation is voluntary and has been approved by the University of Florida IRB 201800327. Any personally-identifiable information collected will not be shared and will remain confidential.
If you have questions about this study, your participation in it, or wish to participate, please contact Rachael Elrod at (352) 273-2627 or email@example.com.
The UF Human Subjects office can be reached at (352) 273-0433 for questions about research participation rights. Thank you for participating!
FREE TUTORING SUPPORT for Students Working on Papers or Graduate Applications
The University Writing Studio, in 302 Tigert Hall, offers free, one-on-one writing help to all UF students. We work with undergrads and graduate students, from all fields of study, on documents from one-page memos up to dissertations. Our experienced tutors are mostly grad students, but we’ve also got undergrad honors students who work mostly with undergraduate writers. We can help with clarity, structure and style, as well as sentence-level patterns of error or weakness. Although we don’t purely proofread papers — our goal is to help you become a better writer, rather than just to copy edit a specific paper — we will help you improve whatever document you bring in.
We are open from M-F 9:30 – 3:30 in 302 Tigert Hall, and M-R evenings from 5:00 – 8:00 in Library West. You can schedule an appointment through our website: www.writing.ufl.edu. Please bring a paper copy of your document to your appointment. If you have any questions, please email the Director, Martin Simpson, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Student Conduct Committee
Student Conduct and Conflict Resolution in the Dean of Students Office is currently recruiting faculty, staff, and graduate students to serve on our Student Conduct Committee. Student Conduct Committee members hear all types of cases involving alleged violations of the Student Honor and Conduct Codes, and play an integral role in educating students about their rights and responsibilities as members of the UF community, in addition to upholding community behavioral standards. Those who are interested in becoming members will be required to attend a training, with the next one occurring on Friday March 23, 2018 from 9:00 AM – 1:00 PM in Criser 201A – L. Vernon Voyles Presentation Room. If you or someone you know may be interested, or if you have any questions please contact Amanda Campbell at AmandaC@dso.ufl.edu. This is a volunteer role.
