Irvine Valley Faculty Colleagues
From: Susan M. Cooper, Ed.D.
Dean, Irvine Campus
Welcome to the Irvine Campus! We are pleased that you are joining us while we experience tremendous growth in student enrollment. We now have freshmen and sophomores as well as our upper division, graduate and credential students. In addition, we welcome our Irvine Valley College faculty and students in Accounting, Anthropology, Humanities and Mathematics. For those who teach on Saturday, please be reminded that your classes start on January 18.
Dr. Dorota Huizinga is our Director of Special Projects. She has been working with me on several Irvine Campus needs such as strategic planning, WASC, faculty development and grants. We will be hosting several “Conversations with the Dean” this semester that will involve informal luncheons on campus. We will provide invitations soon. In addition, Dr. Huizinga may be approaching you about grant opportunities and projects involving undergraduate research.
To assist us with the planning of new programs for our new building at 1 Banting, the Provost’s Office has engaged Rodgers Associates to interview internal and external stakeholders, review the submitted proposals, create possible budget scenarios for future growth and prepare a report for the President and her cabinet. This will take place this semester so you may be asked for comments regarding the future of our campus.
Please remember that CSUF students in your classes may take advantage of free and reduced cost software such as Mat Lab, Front Door, Windows, MS Office, Lynda.com and Adobe Creative Cloud by visiting the ARC in Room 127 with their Titan Card.
Please check in with Nadine Dillon at the front desk to get your keys, copy code, office number and voice mail box. She will direct you to your mailbox as well as have you complete a faculty information form. If you need any help with the technology in your classroom, please call Dan or Mo at the IT helpdesk at x1610.
If you want to learn to use the laser pens for the interactive data projectors, please ask them for a training session. Scantron, Xerox and Par Score machines are located in the faculty lounge in Room 202.
Our Titan Bookstore will have a supply of your requested textbooks, Scantron forms, copy packets and instructional materials. Please be sure you do not request students go to Fullerton to pick up their class materials. We have vending machines as well as food in the bookstore. We also have a Starbucks coffee machine in the Titan Lounge. Please contact Robert Flores at x1658 for DSS accommodations for your students. If you want to set up a study group for your students, please talk with Marsha Daughetee at x1655. If you plan to claim mileage, please contact Tanis Fields in room 125 at x1604. She can provide the policy and appropriate forms. If you need to report an absence, please call Tanis at x1604 or Nadine Dillon at x1601. If we do not get a call or email notification that you are not holding class, we will expect you to hold class on campus.
I hope that you enjoy your semester with us. Please let us know if we can do anything to assist you.
