Items to Note from CTL

There is a great deal going on at the university.  Here are a few items of note:

  • First, it’s time to consider those students who have already lagged behind the rest.  The easiest and most effective way to deal with this issue is the Early Alert System.  If you observe a student is experiencing academic difficulty or dealing with other problems, you can flag the student for early intervention. Access the Early Alert System through UIS and click the “Faculty Services” tab, then click the “Detail Roster with Photo” button.  If you are on MySJU, use the “UIS” tab. If you need immediate contact, call the University Freshman Center at 718-990-5858.
  • Ambassador Riva Ganguly Das, Consul General of India will be speaking on September 12 at 1:50 pm on the Queens campus.
  • Carla Peterson, author of Black Gotham: A Family History of African Americans in Nineteenth-Century New York City, will speak on September 15 at 7:30 pm on the Staten Island Campus.
  • Accent Modification Training is available at reasonable rates for employees from the St. John’s Speech and Hearing Center.
