Faculty and staff are invited Friday for New Student Convocation, featuring Chancellor John M. Dunn. A part of the Saluki Startup kickoff, the event is the formal welcome for all new students and their families to campus.
A guide to important, student-related policies, information and resources is online as a reference for all faculty, staff and students. You can access the "2019-2020 Guide to Important Information for SIU Carbondale Students, Faculty, and Staff” on the Office of the Dean of Students website.
The Sustainability Office is accepting members for working groups aimed at identifying collaborative campus-based solutions across academics, operations, research and campus life. This is an excellent opportunity to engage with campus sustainability and collaborate with others across campus in helping to reach common goals.
