The Office of Student Activities would like to highlight two programs that may be of interest to the LS faculty. They will be hosting Jabali Afrika on Saturday, February 4 and Step Afrika on Saturday, March 25. Jabali Afrika will feature traditional African costumes, rhythms, and dance. Step Afrika attempts to illustrate how traditional African rhythms have been transformed in recent years into a new art form.

Call for Student Summer Research Projects
Last month, all students received this letter announcing a call for proposals to conduct research or developing an artistic composition/performance while working with faculty member this summer. Academic Affairs encourages faculty to help students identify projects. Generous gifts from the the Lindstrom Foundation and the Eli Lilly Foundation provide funds to support stipends for student research of up to ten weeks in the summer. Faculty mentoring these projects will receive a $500. reimbursement account to be used for any professional expenses. The expectation is that most projects will occur on campus, and campus housing will be provided with all summer fellowships. While all proposed projects must be guided by a faculty member, proposals must be written by the student. A letter from the faculty guide must accompany all proposals. Projects must incorporate significant opportunities for conversations between the faculty mentor and the student about the broader significance of the research. Deadline: January 31, 2006.
