As many of you know, This Week In CAS (TWIC) launched its first edition in October 2010. TWIC is part of an effort by Aldemaro Romero, Dean of SIUE’s College of Arts and Sciences (CAS), and his staff, to diversify the way the CAS communicates the stories, adventures, and successes within the CAS community, as well as the local community and the wider world.
During the 2010 academic year, the editors of TWIC posted well in excess of 200 stories about CAS faculty, staff, and events. The topics ranged from academic papers and presentations, art exhibits, awards, new faculty, staff, and department chairs, university museum exhibits, and the list continues.
Although the new year is upon TWIC and the CAS community, the editors would encourage each of you to take some time to search through the article archives. Take a few moments to search for your fellow faculty or your favorite department. Use the TWIC site as a resource for your courses and students.
This year’s TWIC editors hope to build on the success of last year’s staff, improving on the breadth and depth of the stories that were covered last year. The editors will be in contact with each department chair, collecting story ideas for this year. Share your academic endeavors with your chair. They will pass the stories to the TWIC editors. We look forward to sharing what you have accomplished with the CAS community.
Also, the editors would like to encourage you to share TWIC with your friends, colleagues, and family. The TWIC site is fully interactive and has RSS capabilities and can connect with Facebook. Sign up as a user and share your thoughts and opinions about the site and the stories. There is also an Iphone app available for download.
With that being said, Welcome back to SIUE CAS and TWIC.
