Take Back the Night @ Beaumont Tower
Apr 10 all-day
Take Back the Night @ Beaumont Tower | East Lansing | Michigan | United States

Take Back the Night is an annual event dedicated to shedding a light on the prevalence of domestic and sexual violence, with the intent of transforming culture and breaking the silence around these forms of abuse, in the hopes of empowering more survivors to come forward. Such an event is especially relevant and necessary on a college campus recently ravaged by a sexual abuse scandal.

This event is a collaborative effort between members of MSU and the Greater Lansing area. Anyone can attend and the event is free.

This is an all-day event. More details on the activities of the day will be posted as the day of the event approaches. Mark your calendars for Tuesday, April 10th.

Ethical Issues Related to Fundraising from Grateful Patients

Healthcare institutions are becoming increasingly deliberate about philanthropic fundraising given the need to sustain their missions in the face of decreases in governmental research funds and lowering reimbursement for clinical care. Donations from grateful patients constitute 20% of all philanthropic contributions to academic medical centers, totaling nearly $1 billion a year in recent years. Little evidence exists to guide the ethical practice of grateful patient fundraising, and concerns exist regarding privacy and confidentiality, patient vulnerability, and physicians’ conflicts of obligations in this context.

Measuring ESL learners’ language profiles: An individual differences approach @ B135 Wells Hall
Apr 11 @ 1:30 pm – 2:30 pm
Measuring ESL learners' language profiles: An individual differences approach @ B135 Wells Hall

Presenter: Dr. Aline Godfroid

In this presentation, I give an interim report on a research project designed to chart the English knowledge of English as a Second Language speakers studying at Michigan State University. The specific aims of the project are to develop lab-based language tests that allow researchers and teachers to distinguish two types of linguistic knowledge (explicit and implicit) that differ in their usefulness for everyday communication. I will discuss what the different tests measure and focus specifically on the implicit knowledge tests, as these are key for measuring fluent language use during spontaneous communication. I will also consider the cognitive profiles of students that show a propensity for learning implicitly. Interested individuals will have the opportunity to try out some of the individual differences measures in the second half of the presentation.

Apr 11 @ 3:30 pm – 5:00 pm
The Heavy Lift of Institutional Change: Cultivating Strategies for Equity @ Kresge Art Center, Room 108 | East Lansing | Michigan | United States

Dr. Kris De Welde’s remarks will focus on key patterns of systemic and intersectional inequities in higher education as well as strategies for overcoming the exclusionary practices, inequitable policies, and micro-level biases that leverage unequal outcomes in faculty careers. Drawing on her co-edited/co-authored book with Dr. Andi Stepnick, “Disrupting the Culture of Silence,” she will provide insight on the varying levels of academic life – structural, cultural, climate – that must be addressed for lasting organizational change to occur.
