HONORS OFFICE ANNOUNCEMENTS

1.	EVENT: Honors Hosts Education Scholar Diane Ravitch:
The Honors Program is hosting renowned education scholar, Diane Ravitch, on Wednesday, January 22 at 7:00pm in the University Auditorium (next to Century Tower). 

Diane Ravitch is a research professor of education at New York University and a prolific writer, who has published more than 500 articles and reviews for scholarly and popular publications on the subject. Ravitch is internationally acclaimed for her expertise on past and present education.

Drawing on her over 40 years of research and experience, Ravitch has become the champion for public schools across the country. She offers critiques of today's most popular ideas for restructuring schools, including privatization, standardized testing, punitive accountability, and the multiplication of charter schools, and offers a clear prescription for improving American public schools.

Just last week Ravitch was listed as the second most influential university-based education scholar according to Education Week's RHSU Edu-Scholar Public Influence Rankings. The metrics recognize university-based scholars in the U.S. who are contributing most substantially to public debates about education.

The event is free and open to the public, although tickets are required. The Honors Office will have a limited supply, available on a first-come, first-served basis in 343 Infirmary starting today. Tickets may also be available the evening of the event on a space-available basis. 

This event is co-sponsored by the Bob Graham Center for Public Service and the UF College of Education. Facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/555406151209978/

6.	STUDY ABROAD: Transitions Colloquium:
Returning from study abroad can be a confusing, emotional, and even exciting experience. This semester, the UF International Center will again be offering Transitions, a study abroad re-entry colloquium. This 6-session colloquium is an opportunity to explore the different aspects of returning from study abroad, including exploring feelings about study abroad re-entry, career assistance, civic engagement, exploring paths to go abroad again, academic reintegration, and connecting with others going through the same process. Any student who studied abroad during the Fall 2013 semester is eligible to apply. 

Colloquium sessions will be held on six Wednesday or Thursday afternoons (depending on applicant availability) from 3:00-4:00pm. Applications are due January 31 and can be found at http://www.ufic.ufl.edu/SAS/ReEntryColloquium.html. Contact Tessly Dieguez at [log in to unmask] with questions.




LEADERSHIP AND VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

7.	LEADERSHIP: Graham Center to Offer Training Program with Leading Business Executive (NEW POSTING):
Brown & Brown Insurance is one of the largest independent insurance intermediaries in the U.S. and is well-recognized for its commitment to developing young talent through an exclusive leadership training program. Hyatt Brown, chairman and former CEO of Brown & Brown Insurance and one of the most creative leaders in the insurance industry, will be on the campus during the months of February and March and will bring that elite training program to UF. During the program, students will examine their future aspirations and Brown will help participants chart the course with feedback and mentoring.

The Bob Graham Center will select 21 UF students to participate in the program. Students will be placed in three groups of seven and will be required to attend two, two-hour meetings and a concluding dinner. Meetings will be held from 4:00-6:00pm in Pugh Hall, 210. Dates are as follows: Group 1: February 11 and 13; Group 2: March 11 and 13; and Group 3: March 18 and 20. The group dinner will be held on March 20 at 6:00pm.

8.	VOLUNTEER: Be a MUSE At the Harn Museum of Art at UF:
For creative, energetic and dynamic students, the MUSE program offers the opportunity to share your love of fun and passion for art with others. MUSEs (Museum University Student Educators) are one-semester volunteers who create and present interactive and engaging experiences for museum visitors. 

Each Fall, Spring & Summer term, a select group of 10-15 students from diverse academic backgrounds is selected to work together to imagine and produce programs unlike any others at the museum. MUSE programs have included Art off the Wall, when MUSEs shared their interpretation of works in the Harn collection through costumes and drama, surrealist story-telling, and interpretive musical presentations. In other words, as a MUSE you get to reinvent how we look at art and experience the museum!

MUSE planning meetings are Thursdays 3:30 to 5:00pm, and MUSEs take the stage on Museum Nights, the second Thursday of each month.
 
Download an application at:  http://www.harn.ufl.edu/education/MUSEApp.pdf (apply now, applications considered until the program is full)
