Getting ready to launch

As director of the Faulconer Gallery in Grinnell, Iowa (population 9100), I feel a deep commitment to the art and artists of the Midwest region. But--perhaps as a result--I also love to travel and discover the ways in which artists are connected to their places all over the world. In 5 days, I leave for Nanjing, China (population 6 million), where I will be teaching at one of the premier Chinese universities--Nanjing University--and exploring the art worlds of China.  Stay tuned for stories from my journey.

Campus Life as we see it

Our lodging is at the far end of Nanjing University campus.  The campus is divided into the dormitory area for the students (and we live in this part of campus) and the academic and teaching area.  Hankou Road runs through the middle of campus and divides the two sections.  Several times a day we walk through the dorms and see the students going about their daily lives.

In a few hours, we will be boarding our flight in Shanghai for the nonstop flight to Chicago. We are eager to be home, but not yet ready to leave China. Here are some final impressions.

Advising Records After Graduation

Fri, 2013-01-04 02:23 | By Anonymous (not verified)

When advisees graduate, advisers may choose to keep their files for a period of time to assist with reference requests. The adviser may then choose to shred the files or to return them to the Academic Advising Office for shredding. Permanent academic records for each student are maintained by the Registrar's Office. If you need information about a former advisee for the purpose of a letter of recommendation contact the Registrar's Office, x3450.

Changing Advisers

Fri, 2013-01-04 02:23 | By Anonymous (not verified)

Normally, a student's tutorial professor serves as the student's adviser until the student declares a major (by pre-registration in the fourth semester). Transfer students not in tutorials are assigned advisers in the department in which they have indicated an interest. However, if either the student or the adviser feels that the advising relationship is incompatible, he or she may contact the Dean for Student Success and Academic Advising about making a change. When faculty members go on leave they make arrangements for their advisees to be advised by another faculty member.
