:: Complete the Self-Study Survey

As you well know, Antioch College is undergoing a multi-year, multiphase accreditation process with the North Central Association of the Higher Learning Commission. As part of the process, the College embraces an extensive and rigorous self-study process in preparation for a site visit for candidacy in Nov. 2013.

The self-study process is an opportunity to evaluate our educational programs and services—with particular attention to student learning and achievement—and determine how well these programs and services accomplish the College’s goals, fulfill its mission, and meet the Commission’s standards.

Your participation in the self-study process is vital for generating systemic evidence and providing a deeper evaluation of our strengths and challenges. Future staffing, resources and policies will be informed by the results of a survey that will be distributed today via email to students, faculty and staff.

Please check your Antioch College e-mail address for the survey link.

Thank you for your participation in this most important process!

:: Flu prevention information

It’s that time again...flu season! There are also two other bugs going around besides the flu: a nasty stomach virus and an upper respiratory ailment. Please protect yourself and the community by doing what you can to stay well in this challenging time.

Here are some tips:

  1. Wash your hands and make liberal use of hand sanitizer.
  2. Use sanitizing wipes on computer keyboards, copiers and other shared resources.
  3. Get your rest! Nothing runs down your immunity like too little sleep. Eight hours and then some.
  4. Speaking of immunity: boost your immunity by exercising, taking vitamin C and eating right.
  5. Don’t share cups and utensils.
  6. If you do feel ill, call Community Life, tell your RLM, make a doctor’s appointment, stay in and rest.

:: Faculty and Staff 401(K) information

:: Meme: Seeing is Receiving

There will be a performance on Thursday, January 24, at 7:00pm in the Herndon Gallery by three artists who are currently represented in the exhibition titled Meme: Culture in Transmission. The artists in the exhibition were invited to explore the concept and the phenomenon of memes, considering their origin, evolution, mechanisms, and role in contemporary society. The performance is free and open to the public.

The title of the performance is Seeing is Receiving: Performing the Meme and will present the work of Will Davis, Chris Shea, and Rodney Veal. Will Davis is an award-winning storyteller who works in the literary, visual, audio, and live arts. Chris Shea is a theater professional currently residing in Dayton. He is the founder of Dayton based Free Shakespeare!, a company devoted to making the works of Shakespeare accessible to all. Rodney Veal is an independent choreographer and interdisciplinary artist, and serves as adjunct faculty for both Stivers School of the Performing Arts and Sinclair Community College. His recent projects include a solo multimedia performance exhibition at the Springfield Museum of Art, Reveal: Five Zones of Beauty in the summer of 2011.

Meme: Culture in Transmission is guest-curated by Susan Byrnes, independent curator and sculptor who lives currently in Cincinnati. The exhibition will be on display at the Herndon Gallery in South Hall on the Antioch College campus until February 15th. Exhibition hours are Tuesday-Saturday from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. For more information, call Dennie Eagleson, creative director of the Herndon Gallery, at 937-768-6462, or write to deagleson@antiochcollege.org.
