On The Spectrum, the Autistic Support and Advocacy Group at Syracuse University - Next Meeting is November 2nd

A group of graduate and undergraduate students who identify as Autistic / being on the Autism Spectrum have formed a support and advocacy organization by and for Autistic individuals, including alumni and other community members.  Being Autistic / on the Autism Spectrum can be an isolating experience, particularly on a college campus.  But, given Syracuse’s size and autism’s prevalence, we know there are quite a few of us out there!  If you identify as Autistic / on the Autism Spectrum, we will be holding our next meeting on Thursday, November 2nd, at 5:00 p.m. in 230 Schine Student Center (the Disability Cultural Center).  This is a private and confidential group.  Interested people do not have to be formally diagnosed or at any specific “point” on the spectrum.  Feel free to contact Chris Damon (cdamoncr@syr.edu  ) or Justin Robbins (jarobbin@syr.edu  ) if you have questions.  If you need to request accommodations, please email by Monday, October 30th, by 5 p.m.

All Syracuse graduate students are invited to the upcoming FPP Seminar on Media Outreach and Relations.

Mr. Bolt and Prof. Niebuhr will then lead graduate students in a practice exercise in pitching a news story.

You are invited to a Farewell Reception for Tiffany Gray; November 2nd

Thursday, Nov. 2, 4:00-5:30pm

Jabberwocky, Schine Student Center

 

Please stop in to say goodbye and wish Tiffany well, as she leaves SU after a 5-year LGBT Resource Center affiliation to become the new director of the LGBTQA Center at West Chester University outside of Philadelphia.

 

At Syracuse University, Tiffany served as Associate Director and Director, leading the Resource Center through revisioning and strategic planning processes. Additionally, she has been a vital part of many initiatives and collaborative efforts that center diversity, inclusion, and social justice. A few of these include: Safer People, Safer Spaces training; LGBT RC’s allyship statement; Fusion discussion group for LGBTQA students of color; Qolor Collective (SU’s first and only LGBTQA organization for queer and trans students of color); the Chancellor’s workgroup (and now, Council) on Diversity and Inclusion; the Division of Student Affairs’ Diversity and Inclusion Council, C.A.R.E. dialogue circles; the Sexual and Relationship Violence Taskforce, the Senate Committee on LGBT Concerns, SU’s preferred name committee, SU’s bathroom signage committee, and the Academic Strategic Priority workgroup 6 “one university” committee, to name a few.

Whether developing programs and relationships, facilitating deeper conversations, advising students, leading initiatives, or adding her wisdom to workgroups, Tiffany brings expertise, passion, and clarity to everything she does. We have appreciated, and will miss, her unwavering advice to ‘give people grace,’ while also challenging us all to grow. Tiffany’s last day at SU is Nov. 3.

NAGPS Pre-Conference Graduate Research Skills Seminar; Two November 2nd Events

Systematic Reviews: What Are They and Why Should I Care?

Anita Kuiken and Emily Hart, Syracuse University Libraries

Thursday, November 2

9:45-10:30 a.m.

Bird Library 114 (Peter Graham Scholarly Commons)

 

Systematic Reviews are a type of research methodology that use evidence from the literature to establish the best intervention for a desired outcome. Unlike other research methodologies, however, Systematic Reviews follow an established research protocol, are team-based in approach, utilize pre-determined criteria aimed at being comprehensive in nature, and account for bias. Attendees at this session will understand the strengths of systematic reviews, how they are developed, and why they are important to the information landscape.

Cool New Tools: An Introduction to REDCap, DMPTool, and Open Science Framework

Paul Bern, Syracuse University Libraries

Thursday, November 2

12:45-1:30 p.m.

Bird Library 114 (Peter Graham Scholarly Commons)

 

Finding the right tools for your research needs can save countless hours over the course of a graduate program or research project. But with new tools, products, and upgrades entering the fray on a seemingly daily basis, it can be hard for the already overworked grad student to stay on top of what's out there and evaluate their usefulness. In this session, Syracuse University Data Services Librarian Paul Bern will provide an overview of three powerful, free tools that can help grad student researchers conduct their research and data analysis more effectively and efficiently: REDCap, a secure web application for building and managing online surveys and databases; DMPTool, which simplifies the task of making data management plans; and Open Science Framework, a tool for managing collaborative research projects.
