Turf Campaign

Template #5: General Student

DRAFT 1.03.2014

Dear INSERT NAME, 

Every student knows that sometimes it’s a good idea to get out of the classroom and onto the playing field, whether you’re an intercollegiate athlete, an intramural athlete – or just someone who enjoys cheering for your friends. That’s why I hope you’ll join me in supporting a project that’s all about teamwork. 

Last fall our Student Council voted to fund 75 percent of the cost of installing turf at Allgood-Bailey Stadium and the intramural field with student activity fees. I’m proud that our student body has stepped up to help Missouri S&T create first-rate facilities for our student-athletes and intramural program.

The $2.4 million turf project has three funding sources:

$1.8 million from student activity fees

$300,000 from the university (Geothermal Energy Project reinvestment funds)

$300,000 from private donors (the balance we still need to raise)

I’m excited to share that four alumni from Tulsa (Keith Bailey, ME’64, Steve Malcolm, CE’70, Kristie Gibson, EMgt’74, and John Gibson, EMgt’74) were so impressed with the student commitment to this project that they established a $150,000 challenge match encouraging other alumni and friends to contribute. The Tulsa Turf Team Challenge is matching every dollar donated to the turf project until we reach our $300,000 goal. This means we can get there in half the time – at twice the speed!

I’m asking you as a fellow Miner to consider a gift to support this project. Every gift makes a difference – and every gift will be matched thanks to the Tulsa Turf Team Challenge. Please visit give.mst.edu to make an online gift, or complete the attached form and return it with your contribution.

Please join us in this Miner Nation project.

Course Renumbering Initiative (cont.)

  • Motion approved by Graduate Faculty:

“Graduate students will by default be allowed to count a maximum of 6 credit hours of 3000 level courses towards their graduate degree programs, and no credit hours of 1000 or 2000 level courses. Individual departments may further restrict the number of 3000 level courses and specific 4000 level courses counting towards their graduate degree programs.”

Departments need to submit DC forms as appropriate in light of this policy change.

slide37

Department Chairs Subcommittee August 2013

Summary of Recommendations:

1. Keep common exams.

2. One hour across the week should be reserved for common exams. Suggested times: 7:00 am, 12:00 pm (MWF), and 5:00 pm. Need at least three days a week.

3. If a class is scheduled during a common exam time, the instructor of the class that conflicts with the common exam should be prepared to accommodate the students taking the common exam.

4. Flagging the conflicts as prerequisites are flagged in order to send information to students and instructors is not feasible. This also would require that the instructors and students resolve the issue on a case-by-case basis.
