Southeastern’s ‘Let’s Talk: Art’ continues with April lectures
The second and third lectures in the spring series of “Let’s Talk: Art,” sponsored jointly by Southeastern’s Department of Visual Art + Design and the Friends of Sims Library, will be held April 17 and April 24, at 5 p.m., at Southeastern’s Contemporary Art Gallery. Both lectures are free and open to the public.
     On April 17, art history student Blair Gallon will present “Hildegard: An Artistic Identity,” discussing how artistic identity became relevant during the Middle Ages through the work of German mystic, illuminator, composer and abbess Hildegard von Bingen. Irene Nero, Southeastern associate professor of visual art, said the presentation will show that before von Bingen’s time artistic identity was rare and deemed improper and that Von Bingen broke the mold as an artist and holy person. 
     On April 24, graduating senior Lacie Barbour will present “Faith Ringgold: ‘Dancing at the Louvre.’” 
     “Ringgold was ‘an outsider’ in American art in the 1980s, and as a black woman, she had ‘no place’ in the dialogue created earlier by the male-dominated Abstract Expressionists,” Nero said. “With few women artists, and no other black women artists working, Ringgold offered a personal view of life in Harlem, New York, executed in a quilt-like style.”
     For more information, contact Nero at 549-2193.

Southeastern hosts Residency Interview Day 
Southeastern’s Department of Teaching and Learning hosted its annual Residency Interview Day March 21 and 27.
     It is always a delicate game of balance when pairing mentor teachers with year-long resident student teachers. Due to the many different strengths, weaknesses, learning and teaching styles, and personalities of individuals, Southeastern takes great care in placing resident student teachers with strong, qualified mentor teachers.
     Southeastern’s Residency Program is currently partnered with five school districts: Ascension, Livingston, St. Charles, St. Tammany, and Tangipahoa. Each school district was involved in planning meetings preparing for the 2018-2019 school year. Each district participated in a Residency Interview Day, where all 68 potential resident student teachers chose their top two districts for their clinical experience.
     Following interview day, each district analyzed their workforce needs and used this data when confirming their selection of residents. The ultimate goal is to achieve the best fit for both the district, their regional needs and also for the resident in their final year prior to graduation.

LCWTA holds successful Easter basket drive for area children
The Louisiana Child Welfare Training Academy, a program within Southeastern’s School of Social Work, held its first ever Easter basket drive during the month of March.
     The goal was to create 100 Easter baskets for local children in foster care, said Program Coordinator Connie Riddle.
     “The LCWTA team was able to triple their goal, thanks to the generous donations of the Southeastern organizations, students, faculty, staff and the surrounding Hammond community,” she said. “The final count was 346 baskets.”
     Riddle said the age range for the baskets started at newborn and went up to 17 years old.
     “It took over 30 hours and 20 volunteers to assemble the baskets. Each basket was filled with books, puzzles, toys, crafts, toiletries, school supplies, and sweet treats,” she said. “The LCWTA initially planned to distribute the baskets in Tangipahoa Parish, but were able to donate to Washington and St. Tammany parishes as well.”
     Southeastern organizations that contributed to the drive included the Family and Consumer Sciences Department, Health and Human Sciences Department, the Social Work Club, College of Business, Association of Latin American Students (ALAS), the Center for Faculty Excellence, Phi Kappa Phi, Phi Mu, and the Honors Club. Contributing community organizations included St. Tammany Hospital and Laboratory and District 62, Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development, located in Hammond.
     The Louisiana Child Welfare Training Academy (LCWTA) is a partnership between the Department of Children and Family Services, the Pelican Center for Children and Families, and the University Alliance, comprised of seven university partners within the public schools of Social Work in Louisiana.

Raul Diaz

Southeastern’s Science on Tap presents lecture on the Science of ‘Jurassic Park’
Southeastern’s Assistant Professor of Biology Dr. Raul E. Diaz, Jr. will present the next Science on Tap presentation titled “A Chameleon’s View on Body Modification and Jurassic Park.”
     Diaz will discuss the intricacies of modern genetic technology.
Sponsored by the Department of Biological Sciences, the presentation is scheduled April 10, at 7 p.m. at Tope La Catering, 113 East Thomas St. in Hammond, and is free and open to all ages. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. with food and beverages available for purchase.
     “The idea that large vertebrates, like those depicted in Jurassic Park and seen in natural history museums, existed is absolutely mind blowing! But how realistic is bringing one of these creatures back to life using modern genetic technology?” asked Diaz. “We will explore the science of ‘Jurassic Park’ and whether we can use an evolutionarily close living relative that has proven incredibly useful in developmental genetic work in the lab (the chicken) and what else we can learn from other new lab models like the veiled chameleon.”
     For information on this or future Science on Tap presentations, contact the Department of Biological Sciences at 549-3740.

UL System Day

UL System Day at the Capitol
On Wednesday, April 11, Southeastern, along with the other institutions in the University of Louisiana System, will be participating in ULS Day at the Capitol. We are inviting available faculty, staff and students to participate as we travel to Baton Rouge to advocate for higher education on the lawn of the Capitol.
     Our state and system leaders will be attending to bolster the support we are seeking from our state legislators for our universities.  The system is planning a festival atmosphere with activities, performances, and demonstrations. Also, free lunch will be provided for everyone in attendance. All Southeastern attendees are asked to wear GREEN.
     Transportation will be provided for any faculty or staff member who wants to  ride on the Lion Traxx. They can sign up by clicking here: Faculty/Staff Registration for ULS Day. Faculty and staff only need to register if they are planning to ride the Traxx. Those driving themselves do not.
     We hope to see you this Wednesday, April 11. LION UP!


Southeastern Marketing Breakfast to feature retired Navy Chief Petty Officer
Kimberly KingA retired Navy Chief Petty Officer will serve as the guest speaker at Southeastern’s annual Marketing Breakfast on Tuesday, April 17.
     Kimberly King, a 1985 Southeastern marketing graduate, will speak at the event at 8 a.m. in the Southeastern Student Union Ballroom. The breakfast is sponsored by the Southeastern Marketing Association, the marketing faculty and G. Dean Brunson, CPA, of Richmond, Va.
     The program is open to students and the general public. Tickets are $12 and can be ordered and prepaid online at or at the door.
     King joined the Navy right out of college after researching possible companies to work for as part of a senior thesis in marketing. That year, King said, “Forbes Magazine” had an article about top companies for employees, and the Navy was listed in fourth place.
     King originally joined the Navy as an Aviation Maintenance Administration man, but later transitioned to the Aircrew program. As a Loadmaster, King flew on C-130, C-9B, and DC-9 transport planes. Her mission was fleet logistics support worldwide, and she flew for nearly her entire 22 years of service.
     “My job included loading cargo and passengers on board the plane and doing the math to make sure it all worked. It was a good, very challenging job at times, and I truly loved it,” she said. “In our capacity, we flew all over the world, supporting every type of mission you can imagine and flying every sort of thing from nuclear weapons, to animals, to hazardous materials. The old slogan, ‘It’s not just a job, it’s an adventure,’ really applied.”
     King said the greatest success she had as a veteran was in doing a job that very few women would ever consider doing. She was also eventually able to work as an Aircrew Evaluator and to write procedures to better the job of aircrewmen and fleet logistics support as a whole.
     For more information on the lecture, contact the Department of Marketing and Supply Chain Management at 549-2277.

Southeastern Alumni Association unveils new council for young alumni
The Southeastern Alumni Association is seeking young alumni to serve on its newly formed GOLD (Graduates Of the Last Decade) Council.
     Executive Director of Alumni Relations Michelle Biggs said the GOLD Council is a leadership organization composed of Southeastern alumni from all over dedicated to fostering and sustaining relationships with graduates from Southeastern of the last decade to keep them engaged and actively involved with the university.
     “The GOLD Council advises the Office of Alumni Relations and assists with developing programs and communications tailored to the newest alumni,” said Biggs. “The council also acts to shepherd the development of volunteers and future leaders in ways that deepen their commitment to Southeastern and prepare them for active alumni leadership roles.”
     Biggs added that membership on the council has its advantages.
     “GOLD Council members will experience professional networking and the ability to connect with other recent graduates in their community, meet other Southeastern alumni they might not have known while in school, and serve as advisors to Alumni Relations through feedback and ideas to help shape the future of the alumni program,” she said. “Most importantly, council members will have the opportunity to give back to the university that gave so much to them. Almost all students received some type of aid while attending Southeastern, so now it’s time to pay it forward to future Lions.”
     Biggs said in order to be eligible to serve on the board, individuals must have graduated from Southeastern within the last ten years; demonstrate leadership ability or potential; possess an infectious Southeastern spirit; complete the GOLD Council application; and have given or pledged an active-level donation to an Alumni Fund (minimum $50) for the year in which the GOLD Council application is submitted, as well as their elected term years.
     Council members are also asked to attend at least two in-person meetings each year, plus participate in conference/online calls.
     GOLD Council applications are due to the Alumni Association by April 20. Applicants should submit a resume along with the application, Biggs said. Applications are available at
     For more information, contact the Alumni Association at 549-2150.

Writing Project at Southeastern seeks applicants for Summer Institute 
The Southeastern Louisiana Writing Project (SLWP) at Southeastern is now accepting applications for its Invitational Summer Institute in Teaching Writing.
     The institute will meet June 26-July 19. Nine days of writing workshops, roundtables on current issues in teaching writing, and teaching demonstrations take place from 9-11:45 a.m. on Southeastern’s campus. The week of July 10-12 (Tuesday-Thursday) is spent in the French Quarter at a “Teacher as Writer” writing retreat, where participants join other SLWP and National Writing Project teachers.
     The program, said SLWP Director Richard Louth of the Southeastern English Department, “is designed for teachers who use writing in their classrooms, are eager to share their knowledge, and wish to learn from other experienced classroom teachers.”
     Approximately 500 local teachers have attended SLWP institutes since the Writing Project began at Southeastern in 1992.
     “During the institute,” Louth said, “selected kindergarten through college teachers from across the curriculum will write, study the teaching of writing, reflect on their own teaching, and share their best teaching practices with each other.”
     Louth said participants will also have the opportunity to work on personal and professional writing, to publish, and to develop workshops on teaching writing suitable for delivery as inservices to local schools.
     Participants pay their own tuition and expenses to enroll in English 646, a graduate seminar in the teaching of writing, and receive three hours of graduate credit. Registration at the Writing Retreat is free to Summer Fellows. Applications are considered until the institute is filled.
     Applicants should submit a resume; a page containing name, address, phone, e-mail, W#, and school and grade level where the applicant currently teaches; and a brief description of a writing activity used in their classroom. Applicants are interviewed as part of the process.
     Applications can be sent to Louth at or SLU 10327, Hammond, LA, 70402.
     Additional information is available at or by contacting Louth by e-mail or at 549-2102/ 2100.
