Description:
Grouper is an enterprise access management system available at CSU. It allows for distributed access management of applications and other resources. You can set up groups, roles, and permissions for many purposes, such as populating and administering standing committees, ad hoc research teams, departments, or classes. Key collaborative applications -- mailing lists, wikis, calendars, etc. -- can use this group, role, and permission information to make authorization decisions. This session is an introduction to Grouper.
Goals and Target Audience:
This session is an overview of Grouper's capability for anyone needing to manage group access to resources. You will learn about Access Management, the capabilities of Grouper and using the Grouper UI.

Session Length:
2 Hours
Room:
312 LSC
Description:
Life is unpredictable. If something unexpected happens, who will speak for you? When an accident or serious illness occurs to your loved one and they are no longer able to speak for themselves, will you know what care they would want? Did you know that in the State of Colorado, there is no default medical decision maker? During this class, presenters will discuss Colorado laws regarding emergency and ongoing medical care following an accident and why everyone 18 and older needs to complete an advance care directive. The various documents that communicate wishes regarding medical care (advance care directives) will be explained by our panel. You will spend the first hour learning how to prepare yourself, and your loved ones, for addressing these complex issues. During the second hour, representatives for each community program, will be available to answer questions. They will also be able to assist, on an individual basis, anyone interested in completing their documents, including providing witnesses and notarization.
Goals and Target Audience:
Goal: Although, the documents are important, the conversation about end-of-life preferences and goals is also critical. This presentation will include instructions and suggestions to facilitate 1) having a conversation about end of life with family and other loved ones, 2) identifying the person or persons best able to communicate a patient’s wishes regarding medical care when they cannot communicate and 3) gaining familiarity with advance care directive documents that allow choices and wishes to be properly and effectively recorded and preserved. Target Audience: In Colorado no one is automatically authorized to make medical decisions for another adult. Therefore, advance care planning can and should begin at any age or state of health. It is about planning for the ‘what ifs’ that may occur across our lifespan. We welcome adults 18 years of age or older.

Seeking Funding from Private Foundations
Presenters:
Samuel Ernst,Peter Hartman
Category:
Fundraising
Date:
Wednesday, January 11th 2017
Start Time:
11:00 AM
Session Length:
1 Hour
Room:
312 LSC
Description:
Private foundations are one resource that many people consider as they seek to diversify funding streams for their projects. Some foundations have regimented proposal submission processes more in keeping with government grants, while others have very loose requirements. Since the processes vary from foundation to foundation, writing a grant proposal for a private foundation can be a somewhat intimidating process for newcomers. The Office of Foundation Relations, in collaboration with development officers throughout the university, is a great resource when it comes to approaching private foundations. In this session, we'll provide an overview of foundation grantmaking trends, highlight the resources available for those seeking foundation funding at CSU, and finally use some case studies to illustrate the do's and don'ts of writing proposals to private foundations.
Goals and Target Audience:
Goals: The goals of this session are threefold: 1) to provide an overview of the world of private foundations and their grantmaking processes; 2) to provide an introduction to the services offered by the Office of Foundation Relations that can be of benefit when seeking funding from private foundations; and 3) to look at a few real-world examples as case studies to learn how proposals can be optimized. Targeted Audience: CSU Faculty and Staff

Students were invited to move-in early to their residence hall to participate in this program. After moving into the halls, students participated in small groups with faculty and peer mentors discussing the book. Dr. Temple Grandin delivered an engaging lecture discussing the value of diversity and learning. The next day students participated in a service event at various locations in the Fort Collins area. The program was a huge success and created a foundation for learning and engagement for students and faculty in the Honors Programs. This PDI will provide an overview of the overall effectiveness of the Honors Early Move-in and Welcome Lecture program.
Goals and Target Audience:
• Explore the benefits of a Common Reading Program. • Discuss innovative ways to create academic engagement with students. • The value of collaborative partnerships on campus. Faculty, Administration, Student Affairs

Symphony -- A Complement to Kuali
Presenters:
Jim Jensen,Jeff Fotsch,Andy Crane
Category:
Research
Date:
2017
Start Time:
10:45 AM
Session Length:
1 Hour
Room:
312 LSC
Description:
We would like to present Symphony, a complement to Kuali, which provides accurate account balances as well as access to Kuali detail information using any internet capable device. Initially the primary audience was PIs, Researchers, and Research Administrators but, since the launch of the product, we have been able to extend Symphony’s capabilities to include every account type within the University. The interface is extremely intuitive, allowing PIs, Researchers and Administrators access to the information they need without special training. Since the launch of our platform in July 2015, we have been able to extend Symphony’s capabilities through a host of enhancements — including modules for Co-PIs, subaccounts, account delegation, and labor distributions capabilities. We are now building a forecasting tool to further streamline how we do business. While we have shown this to many throughout the University, we thought that having a PDI for those who haven't seen it would make a lot of sense.
Goals and Target Audience:
Financial Managers, PIs, and Department/College Leaders.

Session Title:
The Skill of Impact
Presenters:
Darrie Matthew Burrage,David D'Alessandro
Category:
Diversity
Date:
2017
Start Time:
3:30 PM
Session Length:
1 Hour
Room:
312 LSC
Description:
Conversations on topics surrounding social justice often mention a now well-known concept referred to as “intent versus impact.” The heart of this model is that our intentions, no matter how honorable, may result in a negative experience for another. “Intent versus impact” has been a powerful tool for us to arrive at an awareness (or a reminder) of how we significantly affect the experience of those around us – intended or unintended. Although this model has done well in having us, possibly, gain new knowledge, the current conversation on “intent versus impact” has yet to yield guidance on how we can respond to the impacts we experience, witness, or may cause for others. In this practice-based session, we will spend some time expanding our framework of “intent versus impact” to include “response to impact” as a critical component needed for social change. In addition to this expansion, we will practice customized actions that can be taken when impacts occur in our everyday lives.
Goals and Target Audience:
The goals of session include: (1) problematizing popular notions of “intent versus impact”, (2) have participants learn that both awareness (knowledge) and action (skill) are needed for the changes we desire in society and in our everyday relationships, and (3) generate possible actions that could be taken to respond to the impacts we encounter.
