Photos from the Debate Needed. The development office is putting together a video about the Debate to show to major donors and trustees at an event at the end of January and we are in need of some photos. In particular, we would like to have photos that show Centre students interacting with either of the two candidates (Ryan and Biden) or any photos of current Centre students posing or interacting with any journalists, politicians or dignitaries.
If you have a photo and would be willing to share it, I’d love to have it! If it’s on your cell phone, I’d need for you to DOWNLOAD it to your computer and email it to me from your hard drive. Also always save them as “actual size.” Video files need to be as large as possible.
Email them to email@example.com and then you can also email a copy to firstname.lastname@example.org. It’s more important that Kim, our producer, get them as quickly as possible.
Thanks for any help you can provide. We will glad give you a photo credit at the end and your very own copy of the Debate video as a keepsake!
Poverty-Focused Summer Internships. Centre College has joined the Shepherd Higher Education Consortium on Poverty, a network of 20 leading colleges and universities that integrates academic study of poverty and direct service to disadvantaged communities. The program prepares students in any major or career path for lives aimed at diminishing poverty and enhancing human capability through professional and civic efforts. Centre's participation aligns us with a national movement to expand poverty studies at colleges and universities through collaboration among member institutions.
Central to the program is the integration of poverty-focused summer internships with course work on Centre's campus. We are pleased to announce the opportunity to apply for the first summer of eight-week internship placements. Selected students will live with interns from other Consortium schools in social service settings. The internship includes a modest stipend. Transportation to and from the site and housing for the summer will be covered by the College and the Consortium.
Interested students may apply online through the Shepherd Consortium website. The site will direct you through the application process and ask you to indicate your top three choices. Application deadline is January 25. The campus committee will review the applications on January 28 and invite students to campus interviews on February 7. Selected interns will be notified of acceptance March 25-29. Summer placements begin June 7-9 with an Opening Conference in Lexington, Virginia and end with a Closing Symposium in Lexington, Virginia from August 3-5. Selected students must also agree to take either Sociology 120 (Social Structure) or Religion 340 (Poverty and Homelessness) in 2013 or 2014. If you have any questions, please contact Rick Axtell, Patrick Noltemeyer, or Mindy Wilson.
