Sara Spins Again with Wheelchair for Another UC Student

From UC Magazine:
Sara Spins again with wheelchair for another UC student

UC put on "Ballin' for Abilities" to raise funds for next student's chair

by John Bach

A second University of Cincinnati student is powering her way across UC's hilly campus in a brand new wheelchair thanks to Sara Spins, a nonprofit named for freshman Sara Whitestone.
Whitestone's friends helped her start Sara Spins in 2012 and fund the $12,000 power-assist chair she needed to maneuver her way to class. Once on campus, her story spread (thanks largely to this popular video), and Sara Spins quickly grew much bigger than its namesake.
Nobody can appreciate that fact more than Abbey Hunter, the interior design freshman in UC's College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning who received the nonprofit's second power-assist chair Dec. 28, 2012.
"I don't know how to describe how I felt at the moment I found out Sara Spins had raised enough money to cover my chair," said Hunter. "So many people that I don't even know were willing to help me so that I could study at college with ease. I am ever so grateful."
Funding for the second chair was made possible in part by an October Ability Olympics event on campus sponsored by Sara Spins, Alpha Chi Rho and UC Disability Services. 

Ballin' for Abilities 

Sara Spins and UC's Student Government, which kicked in more than $1,200, put on Ballin' for Abilities Jan. 20, 2013, at the UC Campus Recreation Center basketball courts.
At the event, teams of seven donated $50 to compete in wheelchair basketball. Besides raising funds for Sara Spins, the event was designed to raise awareness for disabilities, a larger goal Whitestone helped accomplish by speaking in front of UC's Board of Trustees about her organization in the fall.
Ironically, both Hunter and Whitestone share far more than their need for a power-assist wheelchair. They were also both diagnosed with Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome or POTS, a condition that causes chronic fatigue that often leads to fainting.
"It was amazing to meet someone at a big college who had the same rare condition," said Hunter. "I now know God put me here at UC for a reason."
Whitestone said she and Abbey met the very first day of fall semester, as she was rolling up UC's Mainstreet in her new power-assist chair.
"I can't imagine how much she struggled to get through last semester with her POTS," said Whitestone. "I really believe the wheelchair will help her tremendously. She's such a hard-working and talented student, and I'm so glad Sara Spins was able to support her to be able to stay here at UC."
Whitestone pointed out that student organizations on campus — particularly Pi Kappa Phi, Alpha Chi Rho and Alpha Sigma Phi — are starting to see their donations at work.
"I am extremely hopeful that we will continue to make our campus equal and inclusive to those with disabilities."

The ACM@UC wishes to bring together members of the community and nation in order to share ideas and encourage continued innovation in all aspects of life. Our mission is to improve campus life through crowd sourced ideas and collaborative efforts. Thus, the Association for Computing Machinery and the University of Cincinnati Student Government will conduct a competition of ideas proposed by UC students: Innov8 UC. The ideas’ are aimed to improve all interactions between entities of the university and its students - the UC campus life.
Ideas can range anywhere from UC technical issues to UC resident hall problems.  Each idea will be judged on the following values:
Values -- The criteria which innovative ideas will be judged; characteristics we promote.
  • Creativity - The unconventional element to the idea
  • Feasibility - Unconventional is great, but is the idea possible and plausible?
  • Impact - What is the range of the change? Who does it effect and how?
  • Delivery - The pitch. A curve, a knuckle, or a two seam heater?
  • X Factor - The ability to change to an adapting environment; are both the idea and the presenter sustainable?
In order to find the perfect solution Innov8 UC will be broken down into the following four competition rounds:
Round ONE"Online Idea Submission": February 1st, 2013-March 13th, 2013
APRIL 7th:
Round TWO“The Elevator Pitch”
Round THREE“Closed Judges Panel”

Gay Men Who Came Out in Graduate School Sought for Dissertation Research

Via the SJTI Listserv:

I am currently carrying out a research project and would like you to consider sharing this information with current or former students/colleagues.  I am studying the coming out experiences of gay men who first publicly disclosed their sexual orientation while attending a graduate program in student affairs/higher education administration.  
The purpose of the study is to understand the experiences of gay men coming out, factors that lead to a student’s decision to disclose their sexual orientation, influence of their graduate program on their decision to come out, and how that decision to disclose their sexual orientation impacts their work today. Those who choose to participate, will be asked to participate in two interviews. 
The first interview will last 90-120 minutes and will focus on individuals lived experiences. To frame the conversation, individuals will be asked to draw a timeline indicating significant life milestones, events, and decisions prior to coming out.  The second interview,  lasting 60-90 minutes will focus specifically on their time in their graduate program and the coming out experience.  Based on availability, interviews will be conducted face-to-face or via Skype.
To participate in the study, participants must 18 or older self-identify as gay man, first disclosing this identity during graduate school (between the years 2008 and 2012) in a masters level student affairs/higher education academic program. Participation in this study is entirely voluntary and participants can withdraw from the study at any time. Individual’s participation in the study will also remain confidential. While the results may be published, individual’s identity will be protected. Those who meet the criteria of the study, and elect to participate, will receive a $25.00 gift card upon completion of the study
I encourage you to share this information with others in your professional network.  I am happy to answer any questions potential participants may have about the study. You, or others may contact me at 301-641-9472, ordepierre@uga.eduIn addition potential participants may contact the principle investigator, Dr. Diane Cooper, faculty member at the University of Georgia, College of Education, Department of Counseling and Human Development Services at or by phone at 706-542-1812.

UC Strategic Planning Update

Dear UC Community,
Since my first days in office, I have been working with many of you to think critically and creatively about the strategic direction of the University. Looking back, all of us should take pride in how effectively and efficiently we worked together on UC2019 and the Academic Master Plan (AMP). A visioning document, UC2019 speaks to why we are here—namely, to transform lives, transform education and transform knowledge. An organizing document, the AMP details what we intend to do—from enhancing the research enterprise to ensuring excellent teaching to fully integrating the regional campuses into the UC experience. Looking ahead, we must now develop a framework for moving from the why and what to the how—that is, from aspiration and ideation to implementation.

As our focus shifts to implementation, it is essential for us to recognize that UC2019 and the AMP are living documents meant to be adapted to the University’s evolving needs, interests and capabilities. The recent changes in leadership and the start of a new year present a logical opportunity for us to revisit our ideas, test our assumptions and recast our efforts accordingly. In this vein, I have charged Provost Johnson with taking a fresh look at the AMP to further align our efforts; sharpen our focus; clarify our aims; and enhance our momentum.

CCM Announces New Community Engagement Initiatives

From UC News:

CCM Announces New Community Engagement Initiatives Fueled by 2012-13 ArtsWave Grant

By partnering with several area organizations, UC's College-Conservatory of Music looks to provide under-served communities with new opportunities for education and participation in the performing arts.

Date: 1/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
By: Curt Whitacre
Phone: (513) 556-2683

UC ingot   The University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music (CCM) is proud to announce several new collaborations supported by a grant from ArtsWave. Awarded in June 2012, CCM’s $50,000 ArtsWave Community Partnership grant was designed to develop mutually beneficial projects that will advance both organizations’ goals for the community and the arts sector.

ArtsWave’s generous support will help CCM enhance its current collaborative relationship with the School for Creative and Performing Arts (SCPA) and will also allow CCM to formalize new partnerships with several community outreach programs, almost all of which were initiated by CCM faculty, students or alumni.

These partnerships are designed to provide under-served geographies and populations in Cincinnati with direct access to CCM faculty and alumni, along with students, staff and administrators. The initial community partners include:

• SCPA – ArtsWave funding will allow CCM to expand its collaborative relationship with SCPA, creating new opportunities for SCPA students to:
  • receive assistance from faculty members of both CCM and the CCM Preparatory Department (CCM Prep), who will help guide students through college application requirements, prepare for auditions and more.
  • audition before a “mock” panel of CCM faculty and administrators to help students prepare for college entrance.
  • collaborate with CCM on joint performances.
• The Cincinnati Out Reach (COR) Music Project – ArtsWave funding will help CCM support the COR Music Project’s teaching artists.

ARC International Humanitarian Law Peer Education Program - Applications Due Feb 1st!

From the American Red Cross:

IHL Peer Education Program 2013

What is IHL?
International Humanitarian Law (IHL) is the body of law that places basic limits on how war is waged. It
aims to protect human dignity during times of armed conflict, and to prevent or reduce the suffering and
destruction that result from war.

The IHL Peer Education Program is a new initiative from the American Red Cross to
to provide chapters with a model to disseminate IHL through direct outreach to young people, who in
turn will reach out to other young people. This year’s program is a pilot program with only nine other
chapters in the country participated. Through this experiential learning method, the goal is to expand,
broaden and diversify the reach of the ARC in teaching the American public about the laws of war and
why they are important.

The IHL Peer Education (“IHL Action Program”)
This program involves IHL Team Mentors which consist of a pair of young people ages 18-25, who
support (2) Team Members or other young people ages 13-17 or to learn about IHL and then to apply their
learning through a project.

UC Grad Writes, Directs Best Cutting Edge, Religious Film

From UC Magazine:

UC grad writes, directs best 'cutting edge,' 'religious' film

by Deborah Rieselman
Creative-writing alumnus Matt Dunnerstick, A&S '01, received eight film-festival awards for writing and directing his first independent feature film, "The Custom Mary." That seems to be enough acclaim that the movie will soon be released internationally.
In January 2013, the new film writer and director made a particularly impressive showing at the San Diego Black Film Festival (SDBFF), one of the country's largest black film festivals, with a win for Best Cutting Edge Film and Best Religious Film. The two genres seem a little odd for a single picture until one reads the movie synopsis:
"When a young Latina in East Los Angeles meets an African-American lowrider mechanic and aficionado, she struggles to reconcile her faith and blossoming love affair while becoming dangerously involved in a religious attempt to clone Jesus."

Dunnerstick describes the picture as "not really religious yet deals with religion, set in the parts of L.A. most films don't get to show, steeped with logic and humor and magic and science and sheep and DNA."
The film premiered at the HBO New York International Latino Film Festival in 2011, but made great strides in the 2012-13 film-festival circuit. It is now available for viewing through

In the end, Dunnerstick says, "I think it's been worth the ride."
