first_imgThe beginning of the academic year marked a significant change in the administrative operations at Saint Mary’s. Due to the retirement of Susan Vanek, associate dean of advising and director of first year studies, Saint Mary’s divided Vanek’s responsibilities into three new roles, all which fall under the Student Academic Services division.Philosophy professor Karen Chambers has been hired as dean of student academic services, which is one of the three new roles. The other two positions, director of academic advising and registrar and director of first year experience and retention, have yet to be filled.“My position is new, but only because the person that was sitting here before — Susan Vanek — she had served the College for a really long time, and she was doing so much that they didn’t feel like one person could legitimately do it,” Chambers said. “So we reorganized a lot of the tasks she did.”Chambers’s duties center around developing College policy, serving on committees and advising on high-level advising issues, she said.“We’re doing a little bit of revision at the College to try to serve students better, and so this division is trying to pull together some of the services that we offer to students so that we might be able to do work across groups,” Chambers said.Another of Chambers’s responsibilities, she said, is overseeing the processes of other departments and their leaders, including the new position of director of first year experience and retention. This will enable smooth communication between the various organizations across campus, she said.“That’s going to be somebody who dual-reports to Karen Johnson, vice president of student affairs, and myself,” Chambers said. “So, [with the director of first year experience and retention] we’re going to try as one of the key points of bridging student life and student academics together so that there’s a cohesive first year experience, but also first year students have different kinds of concerns and crises and to sort of work together in a concerted kind of way to serve those students.”The College decided to add the director of academic advising and registrar in order to assist in making the two offices more cohesive.“We’re going to try to integrate these two offices more … so there’s less walking a piece of paper back and forth between the two offices and we can again work together so students aren’t being run around as much,” Chambers said. “We are just down the hall, but still. Sometimes they send you to the registrar and then they send you back here, and you know if we’re together we might be able to streamline some of those tasks a little more.”Chambers said she hopes combining these offices and their services will make it easier for faculty to assist students throughout their academic journeys.“If we’re not chasing things down and reminding each other of things so much, if we’re working as a unit, then we should have more time to advise our students, to work with our students and those kinds of things,” she said.Handling the challenges that may accompany such close and frequent work with students is one of the aspects of being the dean of student academic services that appealed to Chambers, she said.“There’s something new to think about or something new to learn,” she said. “So personally, that’s what I like. But I also am interested in trying to work with the administration on student-centered policy. So coming from the faculty and being at that kind of level discussion I think gives a different view of how we’re thinking about students and student services. So I think that will be useful for Saint Mary’s and that service to Saint Mary’s is enriching to me.”Tags: student academic serviceslast_img read more

The online lending scare

first_img 9SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr Could online lending cause the next financial crisis? While the odds seem overwhelmingly against it, the recent turmoil at LendingClub — a leading online lender — makes it hard not to ask the question. There are some disquieting parallels with subprime mortgages, which seemed beneficial until sloppy and fraudulent lending practices triggered a wider collapse of confidence. Are we about to repeat the cycle?In theory, online lending makes a lot of sense. Consumers and companies that want credit submit their applications electronically; their creditworthiness is evaluated electronically from data, including FICO scores and payment history, kept by credit bureaus or available from other sources. If prospective borrowers pass the tests, they get the loans. The process is straightforward and fast; the lack of bank branches cuts costs.Business has boomed, in part because some traditional banks retreated from consumer and business lending after the financial crisis. By one study, online lending in the United States totaled $36 billion in 2015, triple the 2014 volume. The increases have continued. In the first three months of 2016, LendingClub’s new loans rose 68 percent to $2.75 billion from the same period in 2015. Online lending was emerging as an alternative to bank and credit card loans. continue reading »last_img read more

first_imgTite was critical of his players after the game and asked them to give more on the pitch in their next game.“We were below what we can do. The squad played less than what it can play.  It was less competitive than what it can be. The squad can give more than this. This wasn’t a good game. We need to get results. When we don’t, criticism emerges and I have to be mature enough to absorb it,” Tite said at his post-match news conference.Neymar became the youngest player to earn 100th cap for Brazil, but the player struggled to impose himself on the game. Tite admitted the 27-year-old is still far from being 100 per cent having missed a few months through injury and transfer drama.“He is getting back to his normal patterns. We are also making adjustments for him in the 4-4-2 system, as we’re doing within the whole team,” he said.Meanwhile, Leicester City star Wilfred Ndidi has been talking tough ahead of the Super Eagles’ eagerly anticipated friendly encounter with the Selecao, with the midfielder convinced that Nigeria has enough in attack and defense to hurt their opponents on Sunday.Ndidi is optimistic that the team’s preparation will help them overcome the Samba Boys, most especially after watching them drew with Senegal on Thursday and Ndidi believes a few weaknesses observed in the Brazilian team could be exploited by him and his teammates.“We watched the game between Brazil and Senegal, it was a good game and we have been preparing based on that, plus working on our shape,” Ndidi said.“We have to find our solutions, while we’re trying to go deal with them, we are also mindful of our back.Corroborating the Leicester City midfielder optimism, former Nigeria goalkeeper Emmanuel Babayaro, who described Sunday’s friendly against Brazil as a good test for the Super Eagles suggested the Samba Boys are no longer the invincible team they used to be, and Nigeria have a chance of getting a good result against the five-time world champions if they get their acts right on Sunday in Singapore. “I think it is a good test for the Super Eagles even though I don’t see this present Brazil team as the same as we used to know,” Babayaro told Goal.“Since after the World Cup they hosted,I have not seen Brazil do anything quite spectacular but the fact still remains Brazil is Brazil any day and they have quality players like Neymar and the likes in their team, so they would definitely be a good test for our team but we can get a good result against them if we get our acts right.”With the season still very young across the globe, Babayaro suggests that players may likely be cautious during Sunday’s game so fans might not see the very best of performances.“In games like this, you might not get the very best from players because they would not want to go back to their respective club injured, most players tread cautiously in this kind of in-between season friendly games,” Babayaro continued.While reflecting on the 1-1 draw recorded between Senegal and Brazil on Thursday, Babayaro – a member of the Nigeria U17 team that won World Cup in 1993 – said it may influence Sunday’s game.“The result from Thursday’s game could rub off on how Sunday’s friendly will go,” he added.“After drawing against Senegal in their last outing, Brazil can either come all out to make sure they win against Nigeria and also the Super Eagles can also draw inspiration that if Senegal can hold the Brazil team, they can do same if not better.”Nigeria are set to face Brazil in an international friendly match slated for Singapore on Sunday, with kickoff billed for 1pm Nigerian time.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram •Ndidi  Says Taranga Lions game will help Eagles beat SelecaoBrazil’s Coach Tite has called on his players to step up and deliver a good performance when they face Nigeria in Sunday’s international friendly at the Kallang National Stadium; Singapore after the Selecao drew 1-1 with Senegal on Thursday.Brazil are now on their longest run without a win since 2013, after drawing 2-2 with Colombia and lost 1-0 to Peru in last month’s friendlies.last_img read more
