August 30th, 2014 by Melissa Anderson

Provost Andrew Feinstein announced on Aug. 29 that Dwight Bentel Hall (DBH) will reopen on Tuesday, Sept. 2. Classes that were temporarily relocated last week will return to their originally scheduled classes in DBH. Faculty and staff who requested temporary office space in other buildings on campus can also return to their regular work spaces in DBH.

CASA Interim Dean Alice Hines sent out a college-wide email notice Friday evening to faculty alerting them that their classes will resume in DBH next week, including a spreadsheet with the original classroom assignments, which is also attached here. Faculty members were directed to send out notices on Canvas to their students alerting them that classes will be moved back to DBH.

The CASA Dean’s Office staff will post notices in the temporary classrooms on Tuesday morning to ensure that all students and faculty are aware of the reopening of DBH and the location of their original classroom.

Nursing student elected to Delta Sigma Phi Grand Council

Felix Navarro, a student in the College of Applied Sciences and Arts’ Valley Foundation School of Nursing, has been  elected to the Grand Council, only the second person from San José State University to represent Delta Sigma Phi on a national level. The council consists of nine members, two of whom are undergraduate students, who serve on the fraternity’s national board of directors.

Felix Navarro, a student in the College of Applied Sciences and Arts’ Valley Foundation School of Nursing, has been  elected to the Grand Council, only the second person from San Jose State University to represent Delta Sigma Phi on a national level. The council consists of nine members, two of whom are undergraduate students, who serve on the fraternity’s national board of directors. “I will be serving as one of nine board members that help guide the direction and overall growth of Delta Sigma Phi,” he said, via email. “Several key goals I would like to accomplish during my two-year term are to improve national communication for subsequent chapters and to improve alumni retention and involvement across the country.” Navarro has been a member of Delta Sigma Phi since he was a freshman in 2010. This year marks his fourth year with the fraternity. “Being a part of Delta Sigma Phi has been the gift of a lifetime,” he said. “In addition to the many transferable skills the organization has taught me with its numerous leadership programs, I have been able to create everlasting bonds of friendship with my chapter brothers. Making great memories and serving the SJSU community with these gentlemen is my favorite part of being a lifetime member.” As a student, Navarro said the skills he’s learned from the leadership activities have helped him on the hospital floor when he interacts with staff and patients during the clinical rotations required of nursing students. “Being part of the Grand Council will allow me to further sharpen these skills and meet many different people from across the country,” he said. “Working and interacting with these diverse individuals can and will only make me a better nurse, especially as a California nurse, where most patients are from a variety of different backgrounds.” He said he also hoped his role as a national board member would help to focus some positive attention on San Jose State University. “I believe that having an SJSU student serve on a national board of directors for a multi-million dollar nonprofit organization shows what kinds of leaders San Jose State is building,” he said. “It shows the kind of leadership qualitied and capabilities the College of Applied Sciences and Arts – especially Nursing – instills in its students.” Many of the members of the Grand Council are presidents, vice presidents or partners at their firms. In addition to his leadership role in Delta Sigma Phi and the challenging course load of the Nursing program, Navarro works as a peer advisor in the College of Applied Sciences and Arts’ Student Success Center.

Dwight Bentel Hall closed for construction; students to meet in SU ballrooms

August 25th, 2014 by Melissa Anderson

Due to ongoing construction, classes scheduled in Dwight Bentel Hall on Monday, Aug. 25 and Tuesday, Aug. 26, 2014 have been relocated to the Student Union, Ballrooms A and B. Students can check in with their faculty at tables labeled with their classroom number and instructor. The ballroom in the new student union is upstairs and can be accessed by entering the Student Union through the Seventh Street entrance. Signs will be posted to direct faculty and students to the ballrooms.

Interim Dean Alice Hines has directed faculty to go to the Student Union ballroom at their scheduled class time to meet with their students. Faculty members will be using the first meeting with their classes to:

1.  Have students on roster check in to claim their seat in the class.

2.     Take waitlist names if seats will or may be available

3.     Provide instructions for class reading or other assignments.

4.     Be prepared to send roster messages to students to notify them of any changes or updates.

5.     If using Canvas, make assignments and instructions available there.

Academic Scheduling will be looking for alternative locations for classes to meet after the first two days of instruction. They will notify faculty and students as soon as locations have been assigned.

CASA Dean’s Office staff have posted signs to notify faculty and staff of the relocation of classes to the Ballroom. They will be available at DBH and in the new Ballroom to redirect students and faculty.
