The Office of Inclusive Excellence presents its second installment of the Civility Development Workshop (CDW) series called "Understanding and Eliminating Implicit Bias" on April 13 in the MSU Donahoo Lounge at 11 a.m. 

Implicit bias is the result of a variety of messages introduced into our subconscious from an early age. Many of these biases are deep down in our unconscious and often influence how we act toward one another in our organizations, communities and relationships. Learn how race, sex, age or other characteristics influence how we see and treat people when we are genuinely trying to be unbiased. Also, you will explore ways to identify hidden bias and create ways to reduce the bias effect.

Dr. Julie Ancis, associate vice president, Office of Institute Diversity, Georgia Tech, will facilitate the workshop. To register for the workshop, please click here

The concert will feature a variety of environmentally-themed music from composers like Eric Whitacre, Daniel Elder, Paul Carey and many more. The concert will also feature a work entitled “When spring comes…,” composed by Dr. HyeKyung Lee, associate professor of music at Denison University in Granville, Ohio.

“Seeing already Dr. Flory’s conducting last November at Denison, I know it’s going to be a great performance. I am totally honored,” Lee said. This will be the second performance of this piece, and Lee will rehearse with the University Chorus and attend the concert.

The concert will feature an assortment of selections, performed by University Chorus, Women’s Ensemble, Max Noah Singers and The Cat’s Meow. In addition to Dr. Jennifer Flory, several students will conduct. One such work is “Peace on Earth…and lots of little crickets,” which will be performed by Women’s Ensemble and conducted by Stacy Henderson, a music education graduate assistant .

“It has been a lot of fun to work with the Women's Ensemble,” Henderson said. “They are a hard-working, fun-loving group of women, who are extremely talented and pick up new pieces quickly.”

Admission is free, but a $5 donation is encouraged.   All proceeds benefit music scholarships or the music department through GCSU Foundations, Inc.

For more information, please contact Dr. Jennifer Flory, professor of music and director of choral activities at jennifer.flory@gcsu.edu or 478-445-4839.

Dr. Donovan Domingue, professor of physics and astronomy, will participate in the Harlow Shapley Visiting Lectureship Program of the American Astronomical Association. He will present Monday April 3 at the University of Houston- Clear Lake. Domingue’s presentation is titled “Pre-Merger Galaxy Pairs as Star Formation Benchmarks in the Local Universe.”
 
The Harlow Shapley Visiting Lectureship Program is a program of two day visits by professional astronomers who bring the excitement of modern astronomy and astrophysics to colleges of all types. Shapley Lecturers contribute to the host institution's academic program and intellectual environment in many different ways. They must give at least one presentation that is free and open to the general public, the Harlow Shapley Lecture, but they may also engage in a variety of other activities while there.

The office of Academic Affairs invites you to a panel presentation by 2016 recipients of the Faculty Scholarship Support Program Awards. Dr. Susmita Sadhu, assistant professor in the Department of Mathematics, and Dr. Clifford Towner, director of band activities and assistant professor of music, will present a discussion of their research on Wednesday, April 5 at 5 p.m. in Arts and Sciences Room 2-51.

Sadhu’s presentation, “Recurrent Population Outbreaks Through Mathematical Lenses” will appeal to multiple disciplinary perspectives with its discussion of the population cycles of pest insect species and the economic and ecological consequences of sudden large changes in population densities. Sadhu will demonstrate how the mathematical model she studies reproduces several characteristics of naturally occurring population cycles and, thus, may have application for preventing pest outbreaks. 

Towner will share his experiences creating a textbook for pre-teachers and music educators (with a focus on band directors) that outlines a method for finding, evaluating and programing quality wind band literature.   

After these two brief presentations, the audience will be invited to engage the presenters in a discussion of their work. Please don’t miss this opportunity to recognize, learn from, and support the work of our colleagues.
