In this proposal for a National Service Learning Academy and complimentary Action Research Program, several curricula configurations are put forth. The first is a full-blown action research major that partially dictates the appropriate courses to take fulfilling the A&S core requirements and the majority of free electives. The second is a minor/certificate in action research. The third is an alternative set of core courses that would replace the credit hours traditionally reserved for the A&S core requirements, enabling any student to tack on the action research experience to their chosen major while still having credit hours available to pursue other minors, certificates, or electives. The fourth is an alternative core that is based more heavily on applied courses and knowledge.
The current debates revolving around 5G, Huawei, and how they are resolved, are highly visible indicators of the technology based shifts in the global order which are setting the tone for the 21st century. Currently, it seems that many in the US and the PRC are using Cold War and Thucydides Trap paradigms, with a zero-sum mentality. At least in the case of 5G technology, the UK seems to have taken a more nuanced approach.
This article comes as the UK prepares its new National Cyber Security Strategy, reviewing the 5G and cyber security debates surrounding Huawei in a highly interdisciplinary manner, and directing readers to a rich variety of resources. In addition to its analysis of issues and solutions often absent from the discourse, this article’s feature contribution is the argument that the UK can be more than an example of a middle way. Specifically, if the UK scales up and internationalizes its Huawei Cyber Security Evaluation Center, perhaps by creating an International Cyber Security Evaluation Center, it can lead its allies and the world in 5G, 6G, cybersecurity, and international relations, filling a vital leadership vacuum.
This is a preprint of a to be submitted paper that demonstrates that: (1) many important food allergens (eggs, milk, peanuts, tree nuts) induce the unfolded protein response (UPR) in intestinal epithelial cells; (2) induction of the UPR, in turn, stimulates the expression of pro-Th2 cytokines (IL-25, IL-33, TSLP) that are required for the induction of food allergy by these cytokines; (3) egg allergy is suppressed in mouse models by the UPR inhibitor, metformin (a drug widely used to treat diabetes mellitus); and (4) metformin appears to have a protective effects in humans who have alpha-gal syndrome, which is a form of food allergy.
The first webinar for the 2019-2020 RDAP year occurred on Oct 30th from 3:30 to 4:30 EST was “Ask me Anything” town hall meeting “Thriving as a Data Information Professional”. A panel of experienced data informational professional shared experiences and expertise answered questions about daily work as a data information professional. Panelists were:
Wendy Mann - Geroge Mason (director of digital scholarship center)
Lynda Kellam - UNC Greensbro, now at Cornell
Megan Sapp Nelson - Purdue (data information literacy)
Jon Wheeler - New Mexico (data curation librarian)
Christie Ann Wiley - U of IL (research data services librarian)

Architecture has a unique responsibility to anticipate and shape the future. Buildings and spaces designed today will not be completed for years, then are expected to remain relevant for decades or indefinitely. For this reason, design must always look forward to anticipate what changes in society and technology may bring and conversely what elements remain timeless. This studio sought to investigate one facet of the future that has already gone through many rounds of radical change, human work and the space that supports it.
Abstract: Can a library support an overseas program with a full-time librarian position? Can this position provide distant services successfully through e-learning techniques, social media and other methods? The answer is yes. As many American universities enroll students through a shared or global campus, librarians can play a vital role as the primary information and library services provider. The University of Cincinnati (UC) and Chongqing University, China (CQU) established the first shared engineering programs in China with mandatory co-operative education, the Joint Co-op Institute (JCI), in 2013. Students primarily receive on-campus instruction in China from JCI instructors; however, no UC librarian is onsite to provide dedicated support. In response, UC Libraries developed the new Global Services Librarian position as the lead presence for support of the Libraries’ growing global engagement and partnerships, especially with the JCI. This Librarian provides a full range of services, mostly at a distance, including instruction, outreach, and faculty support. This presentation will describe the development of the Global Services Librarian position, its roles in supporting the JCI, lessons learned in the first year of this position, and how this role could be adapted for other library environments.
As the opportunities afforded by globalization expand, colleges and universities are committed to providing students with academic opportunities on a global scale. This has led academic libraries to focus efforts on meeting the needs of students and faculty at global campuses and study abroad sites. In this panel, we’ll be discussing the similarities and differences between our global library services programs and the opportunities and challenges we’ve faced, with practical advice on working with partners on-campus and overseas. This will be an interactive session where the audience will work towards formulating and refining global initiatives based on institutional needs.
If your organization is interested in establishing and developing a joint international program in
China, it is inevitable to face both manageable risks and unpredictable changes. There are
mainly three types of challenges.
● Political impact on travel and visa application: the 2017 re-election in China and
leadership change in the United States affect how efficient for both sides to visit each
other and stay for work.
● Technology restriction on teaching and communication: While the fast internet speed
and open internet are taken for granted in the US, technological difficulties in China can
be a barrier for effective teaching and communication.
● Censorship: In China, censorship is always a challenge, especially in the current state.
Be proactive to work effectively within the constraints.
The presenter is intended to share some experience and best practice based on a successful
joint institute between University of Cincinnati and Chongqing University. As the first coop based
program in China, the program continues to be a leading model in international engineering
