FALL 2006

Dear Members of the SCS Community:

We have celebrated some monumental anniversaries during my tenure as dean–the School’s 40th anniversary in 2002 and my 10th in 2005–but the excitement generated by the birth of the non-credit program, Think Again, has proved to be a defining moment in our development and so clearly exemplifies our mission: To Enrich Lives and Careers. I want to particularly acknowledge the efforts of Dr. Patricia Johnson Brown for her original concept for both the program and its implementation. Dr. Brown arrived on campus as associate dean in 1995 specifically to develop a non-credit curriculum that would mirror our successful evening school credit programs, with an emphasis on the liberal arts.

Special Thanks

From an initial offering of 12 courses that enrolled 72 participants, the program has grown to hundreds of offerings with more than 5,000 enrollments annually. Our creative and diligent staff has expanded the programming to fall, spring and summer editions, under the auspices of the Office of Community and Professional Education, directed by Pam Johnson.

As we celebrate the 10th anniversary of Think Again and our non-credit programs, we’d like to give special thanks to Dr. Patricia Johnson Brown, Associate Dean, for her original concept for both the program and its implementation.

The publication has brought enormous recognition to the School and to the University, for which we are grateful. But, most importantly, Think Again provides learners of all ages with an opportunity to engage in the continuous pursuit of learning. Please join me in this celebration year, with special events on October 7 for the entire community. On behalf of the faculty and staff, we want to thank you for your generous and committed support, and we look forward to your participation during the next decade. And, special thanks to Pat, Pam and the staff of OCPE for their devotion to this awardwinning program that has become such an integral part of the School of Continuing Studies. Sincerely,

James L. Narduzzi, Ph.D. Dean

Every fall, residents of the United States and Canada marvel at the annual migration of colorful Monarch butterflies—but where are they going? Professor Lincoln P. Brower and his graduate students at Sweet Briar College know; they have conducted research at the overwintering sites of this butterfly in the central highlands of Mexico since 1977. Learn how some researchers think monarchs find their way to Mexico, and how the high altitude rain forest serves as blanket, umbrella, and hot water bottle for millions of monarchs. Dr. Brower will examine threats to this fragile migration cycle, from forest exploitation to the devasting 2002 storm in central Mexico that killed a quarter of a billion monarchs, and will share promising conservation initiatives by the World Wildlife Fund of Mexico, and by the US, Canadian, and Mexican governments. Course fee includes admission to the Garden. As a special touch, students from Crestwood Elementary School, a Monarch Watch school, will join us for their charming and touching “Monarch Dance”!

Continuing Education Units Some courses in this catalog qualify for CEUs (Continuing Education Units). CEUs are a way of measuring and officially recognizing the time and effort you have put into your education for your job or profession. The Office of the University Registrar will maintain a record of your CEUs and provide you with a transcript upon request. So, what do you do with a CEU? As you update your credentials, are in line for a transfer, promotion or evaluation of your current position, or want to make a vocational change or explore a new career, the CEUs demonstrate the time, energy and interest you have shown in broadening your horizons.

Registration Deadlines It is extremely important that you register at least one week prior to the start of the course. Registration deadlines have been put in place to allow for an accurate enrollment count needed for planning classroom needs, course materials, and food or travel logistics related to the class. If you submit your registration after the deadline, we cannot guarantee that you will receive a space in the course.
