The Alumni Association will honor distinguished alumni on Friday, Oct. 17, at the annual Alumni Awards evening as part of the university's week-long homecoming celebration.
     The Alumni Association will present its Distinguished Service Award to Ken and Bettye Magee of Hammond and the L.E. Chandler Award to Dalzire "Dollie" Hebert-Crouch.
     They will be recognized along with the 2008 Alumnus of the Year, Hammond attorney Kenneth L. Ross, retired U.S. Air Force brigadier general and chief of staff of the Louisiana Air National Guard.
     The Distinguished Service Award recognizes "those who have generously donated their time and talents to the betterment of the Alumni Association," said Alumni Director Kathy Pittman. The L.E. Chandler Award, sponsored by the alumni Past President's Club, is awarded annually to a faculty, staff or an alumnus who has assisted students in their efforts and accomplishments in extracurricular activities.
     "The Magees have been supportive of the university and Alumni Association in many ways and have served on numerous committees," said Pittman "For instance, they have religiously supported our football team, flying all over the country to attend the games. I don't think they have missed a single one."
     Bettye Magee received her master's degree from Southeastern in 1995. She taught at Southeastern Lab School for many years and was recognized as teacher of the year during her tenure. She is an active member of the FE-Lions and has served on a number of its committees, including Champagne Bingo.
     A 1962 Southeastern graduate, Ken Magee is a former football coach and director of career services at the university. He is a member of the Former Football Players Association and was active in the return of the football program in 2003.
     Hebert-Crouch, who received her bachelor's and master's degrees from Southeastern in 1990 and 1992, respectively, is director of Southeastern's recreational sports and wellness. She regularly works with faculty, staff and students through the Pennington Student Activities Center, American Cancer Society Relay for Life, the American Heart Association's Heartwalk, and intramural sports.
     "Dollie is one of a few individuals who has served on and/or chaired both the Homecoming and Rock n' Roar Committees for 12 consecutive years," Pittman said. "Her dedication to the university and willingness to be involved are unparalleled."
     Tickets for the awards event, scheduled for 7 p.m. at Twelve Oaks, are available from the Alumni Association, 985-549-2150, 1-800-SLU-ALUM.

     CUTL on course portfolios: The Center for Faculty Excellence is offering a new Certificate for University Teaching and Learning (CUTL) on course portfolios. CUTLs are offered by the center to assist you in meeting and documenting your professional goals. This program allows faculty a structured, concentrated way to expand the practice, art and scholarship of teaching and learning. These certificates may be included in your professional portfolio as evidence of your continued professional growth in your commitment for teaching excellence.
     Why Course Portfolios? The portfolios will allow you to explore what is really going on in your classrooms. Is what you want to happen really happening? Teaching requires a lot of intellectual work. Why not make your work visible through a course portfolio?
     The 2008-2009 CUTL will allow participants to create a course portfolio over a series of four workshops led by Southeastern faculty who have attended national training and created their own course portfolios. The workshops will divide the creation of the course portfolio into a four-step process. To create a course portfolio, participants will describe a particular course, gather evidence from the course, reflect on the teaching and learning outcomes, and share portfolios.
     For your convenience the workshops are offered at two different times during the week. (Another set of workshops will be offered in the spring, dates TBA).
You may attend one, two, three, or four sessions. Faculty successfully completing all four steps will receive a CUTL.
     Step 3: Documenting and Analyzing Student Learning -- Tuesday, Oct. 28, 9-10 a.m. or Wednesday, Oct. 29, 2-3 p.m.
     Step 4: Sharing and Celebrating Your Work -- Tuesday, Nov. 18, 9-10 a.m. or Wednesday, Nov. 19, 2-3 p.m. Step 3: Documenting and Analyzing Student Learning.

Keith FinleyFinley authors book on civil rights and the South, Delaying the Dream
A new book by Southeastern history instructor Keith Finley, assistant director of the university's Center for Southeast Louisiana Studies, describes how U.S. Senators thwarted the civil rights struggle for decades by the wily use of "strategic delay."
      Delaying the Dream: Southern Senators and the Fight against Civil Rights, 1938-1965 was issued this month as part of LSU Press's "Making the Modern South" series.
     While many historical accounts of the civil rights era focus on the ferocity of white resistance, Finley points out that adversaries also employed less confrontational tactics to deny equal rights to black Americans. "Delaying the Dream" examines how the south's national spokesmen -- its United States senators - continually used delaying tactics to block legislation.
     Finley said he became interested in the topic while working on his graduate thesis at Southeastern. He received his master's degree in 1999 and also holds a doctoral degree from LSU and bachelor's degree from Gettysburg College.
     "I was researching Lyndon Johnson's role in the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1957," he said. "I noticed that all of my preconceptions regarding the nature of southern tactics in the Senate were incorrect. The senators offered well-reasoned legal critiques of the bill that appealed to a national rather than a sectional audience.
