The series focuses on a student progressing through the BG@100 PeopleSoft Campus Solutions System (CSS). The presentations will provide participants insight into the process from the perspective of the student as well as that of a BGSU staff or faculty member.

This second presentation in the series focuses on Campus Community. Items to be discussed include what kind of information is being captured for students and where it can be viewed, what the “three Cs” are, and the definition of checklists and “to-do” lists and where they can be seen. Also explained will be whether it is possible to create and store a comment on a student's record, what happened to holds, and positive and negative service indicators.

ADHD is topic of Ullman Conference on Children’s Mental Health

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a chronic mental health disorder associated with impairments in children’s relationships with teachers, parents and peers. With a prevalence rate of 2-9 percent, ADHD is a major public health problem in the United States and abroad.

The ninth annual Douglas G. Ullman Conference on Children’s Mental Health will provide an overview and specific information about evidence-based treatments for ADHD and how to implement those treatments.

Titled “ADHD Comprehensive Psychosocial, Pharmacological, and Combined Treatments,” the conference is scheduled for 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. March 12 at the Stone Ridge Golf Club. The event is offered by Continuing and Extended Education and is sponsored by the Children’s Resource Center.

Dr. William E. Pelham Jr., the featured presenter, is a Distinguished Professor of Psychology, Pediatrics and Psychiatry at the State University of New York at Buffalo and director of its Center for Children and Families. Pelham’s summer treatment program for children with ADHD has been recognized by the American Psychological Association as a model program and is considered state-of-the-art treatment for ADHD.

The conference will cover the societal significance of ADHD, as well as discuss evidence-based diagnosis and assessment. Primarily, it will cover the most advanced, evidence-based interventions, including psychosocial, pharmaceutical and multimodal treatments. The emphasis will be on dealing with ADHD in school, home and peer settings.    

The conference series honors and continues the innovative work of the late Dr. Ullman, a professor of psychology at BGSU and a founding member of the Children’s Resource Center. The center is a comprehensive, multidisciplinary community mental health program.

BGSU to host Women in Science, Math, Engineering and Technology

Technology, engineering, math and science are just a few of the in-demand career fields for women today. High school girls from around the region will be able to participate in hands-on activities while learning more about these fields at the annual Women in Science, Math, Engineering and Technology program.

The 2009 program for girls in grades 9-12 is scheduled for 8:15 a.m. to 1:50 p.m. Friday (March 6) in the Bowen-Thompson Student Union. The event is sponsored by Continuing and Extended Education and the Center of Excellence in Science and Math Education (COSMOS).

What began as Women in Science in 1988 was expanded to include math, engineering and technology in 1999. More than 500 young women in grades 7-12 attend junior high and high school programs each year to learn from successful professionals about the exciting and rewarding careers open to them.
