Southeastern athletic training program re-accredited
The Southeastern athletic training education program has been nationally re-accredited for the maximum five years.
     The Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE) issued its approval of the program with no sanctions following a comprehensive evaluation earlier this year that included a self-study and an on-site visit by independent reviewers.
     "A determination of accreditation is a sign that a program is in compliance with nationally established standards," said Tammy Bourg, Southeastern interim provost and vice president for academic affairs. "It is a stamp of approval that recognizes the quality of the program and the strength of its faculty, curriculum and clinical partners."
     Southeastern's athletic training education program is one of several degree programs offered through the Department of Kinesiology and Health Studies, said Eddie Hebert, department head.
     "The program is designed to provide a comprehensive educational and clinical preparation for a career in athletic training," explained Hebert. "Students receive considerable training on injury prevention, evaluation and assessment of patients, immediate care, treatment and rehabilitation, and professional development."
     Karen Lew, program director, said athletic training students have the opportunity to experience working in the profession in a number of clinical settings, including working with professional athletic trainers in Southeastern's athletic programs and at the university health center.
     Students also intern at North Oaks Health System, several orthopedic and sports medicine clinics and in athletic programs at several area high schools. Orthopedic surgeon Dr. Reiss Plauche of Covington serves as medical director of the program and provides opportunities for students to observe medical and surgical procedures.
     Lew said that following completion of the curriculum, Southeastern students are immediately qualified to take their certification examination. Currently, approximately 90 Southeastern students are enrolled in the program
     According to CAATE, the standards used to evaluate athletic training education programs were developed with the support of the American Academy of Family Physicians, American Academy of Pediatrics, American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine and the National Athletic Trainers' Association, Inc.
     For more information on the Southeastern Athletic Training program, contact Lew at 985-549- or at

Dance presents 'A Cause to Move'
The Department of Music and Dramatic Arts will present Moxie Dance Project's "A Cause to Move" Oct. 16 in Vonnie Borden Theatre.
     Directed by Southeastern dance instructor Dana Brewer-Plazinic, "A Cause to Move" features student choreographers Heather Brown of New Orleans and Bridget Lyons of Ponchatoula. Guest choreographers include Beth Fagan, owner of Main Street Dance Studio in Hammond, and Southeastern alumnus Keith "Skip" Costa of Coremovement Project and NYLA Dance. Faculty choreographers include Brewer-Plazinic and fellow Southeastern dance faculty member Janet Neyrey.
     The genres for the 7:30 p.m. concert include ballet, modern, lyrical and pointe dance.
Brewer-Plazinic said that she is presenting two modern pieces - a touching and playful duet about childhood friendship and a lively group piece to Cajun music.
     Costa is presenting a new work specially choreographed for Southeastern dancers as part of Costa's guest residency at the university.
     "Eight dancers were chosen to work with Skip on the piece, which is about the causes behind the various colored ribbons for cancer, AIDS, etc., seen on vehicles, shirts and other items," Brewer-Plazinic said. "It is an emotional and personal piece that has touched the performers."
     Brown, a graduating senior, will present a dance piece about serenity, while Lyons, a freshman, will present a lyrical group piece set to music by Natasha Bettingfield.
     Neyrey's pieces include a large group ballet created as part of a contemporary dance workshop course and a pointe solo danced by Carly Hyde of Ponchatoula.
     Tickets -- $4, general admission, and $2, non-Southeastern students, senior citizens, and Southeastern faculty and staff -- go on sale one-hour before the show in the D Vicker's lobby. Southeastern students are admitted free with university I.D.

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 2: Describing Your Course Activities -- Tuesday, Oct., 14, 9-10 a.m. or Wednesday, Oct. 15, 2-3 p.m.
