Campus Kudos

Kudos to the UW-Whitewater Sales Team for taking first place in both divisions on Oct. 6 in Muncie, Indiana, at the Ball State Regional Sales Competition. Henry Bernhagen and Nick Rasmussen took first and fourth place, respectively, in the Advanced Division and Kayla Agostini took first in the Developmental Division. Noelle Butski led and coached the team.

Kudos to the UW-Whitewater Police Department, which received the Extraordinary Employer Support Award, which recognizes sustained employer support of the U.S. Army National Guard and Reserve service.

Kudos to UW-Whitewater students who presented their undergraduate research at the Wisconsin Sociological Association conference on Oct. 20 at Marquette University. Camille Deller, criminology major, presented "Women in Law Enforcement and Officer Involved Deaths." Theodore Hawver, criminology major, presented "The Creation and Adherence of the Prisoner Identity" and also served as Presider for the paper session titled "Identity." Leah Selby, sociology major, presented "Examining the Corporate Social Responsibility of Board and Brush: A Case Study."

Sexual Misconduct Panel Discussion and Training Program

UW-Whitewater will offer a panel discussion and training program, "Handling a Sexual Misconduct Case from A-Z," intended for all campus community members who are interested in learning more about sexual misconduct and what to expect during the internal complaint and disciplinary process. The training is 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 13, in the Summers Auditorium in the University Center. It will include a panel discussion from university officials and representatives who will discuss their role in every step of the complaint and disciplinary process from start to finish. Counselors will be available during and after the training program to engage in a confidential conversation with any student who would like to talk. Counselors may also be reached by calling 262-472-1305 at the UHCS.

UW-Whitewater looking for memorabilia

Materials may be donated if desired. If you have questions, please connect with Paul Waelchli, director of the Andersen Library, at waelchlp@uww.edu or 262-472-5516.
