REAL FOOD LABELS ARRIVE ON CAMPUS


/bs_col]
Noticed a little white sticker on your recent campus food purchase? If you have eaten at Mom’s Café and Mom’s Pantry at the Marriott Library, or at the Counsel Café in the S.J. Quinney College of Law, you may have purchased an item with one of these Real Food labels. The Real Food labels are round icons on a white background, about the size of a quarter. The labels indicate whether your food is humane, eco-friendly, local, and fair, the four criteria needed for an item to be considered “real food.” The University has taken the Real Food Challenge, a commitment to offering 20 percent real food on campus by 2020. These labels help campus reach our goal by promoting the purchase of real food. Learn more about the Real Food Challenge and look for food with these stickers across campus.

Implementation of the labels is supported by the Real Food Challenge, the Sustainability Office, Chartwells, the Sustainable Campus Initiative Fund and the Office of Undergraduate Research.


EXCELLENCE IN GLOBAL EDUCATION AWARD
Deadline: March 6, 2017

The Office for Global Engagement (OGE) has established this award to recognize faculty and staff contributions to the university’s global dimension and those who have demonstrated excellence in facilitating student global learning and intercultural understanding. This may include international partnership development that engages students, curriculum revision to include global learning outcomes, advancement of the learning of languages, and other initiatives that provide significant opportunities for global learning either on campus or abroad. It may also include providing exceptional support or mentoring to international students and students participating in learning abroad programs. One faculty member and one staff member will be awarded (two awards).

This is an annual award for which OGE seeks nominations each spring semester. The award selection and ceremony is held in early April each year

U faculty, submit your textbook adoptions to the University Campus Store for the upcoming 2017 summer or fall semesters, it’s not too late.

If you need assistance in submitting your textbook information, please contact Dave Nelson at 801-581-8321 or dnelson@campusstore.utah.edu.

The prompt submission of textbook adoptions by faculty each semester enables the Campus Store to stock the necessary books in a timely manner. This increases the chances of offering used textbooks, eBooks, and rental textbooks, all of which help students save up to 50 percent off of new book prices. The Campus Store relies heavily on your timely response, so please don’t delay.
