Intelligent Catholicism: Sexuality, Dating and Chastity September 2nd, 7pm at the USC Caruso Catholic Center

Intelligent Catholicism is a series of discussions at the USC Caruso Catholic Center led by Fr. James Heft, S.M., president of the Institute for Advanced Catholic Studies at USC. We get together and talk about some of the controversial issues facing the Church and the world today that can help us better understand and live out our faith. Catholics and non-Catholics are all welcomed to join us! Light refreshments will be provided.  Event dates: September 2nd, 23rd, October 7th and 28th, November 4th and 18th, and December 2nd.

Our next discussion: September 2nd – Sexuality, Dating and Chastity. What is the wisdom of the Catholic Church on these matters? Is there a better question than “how far can I go?” Does being chaste have to mean being a prude?

Undergraduate Research Positions – USC Health, Emotion & Addiction lab is looking for undergraduate research assistants.

Assistantships are available as part of a Directed Research Course or can be done on a volunteer basis.  Assistants work on studies examining the role of emotional factors that influence tobacco, alcohol and drug use, as well as other behaviors that impact health (e.g. exercise and diet). Undergraduate assistantships are a great way to gain initial exposure to research in preparation for medical school and graduate school in psychology, neuroscience and public health. 

We are currently looking for research assistants who are either fluent in Spanish or have a full day of availability in fall 2013.  To get a better understanding of our lab, please check out our website (http://heal.usc.edu). 

If you are interested, we’d appreciate if you could answer some questions by clicking on the following link (https://redcap.sc-ctsi.org/surveys/?s=uvh5oL). Please contact Bree Geary at bgeary@usc.edu for more information!

Volunteer opportunity, Western Political Science Association, Hollywood, CA, March 27-Saturday, March 30.

Professor Christian Grose is looking for students willing to volunteer for an upcoming political science conference that is being hosted by USC and being held at the Loews Hollywood hotel. The conference will involved thousands of political scientists, professors, and students from across the United States. Students who volunteer are able to be registered to attend the conference for free (which normally costs $75 for students who do not volunteer). Many of the conference participants will be presenting cutting-edge research on panels and roundtables on a variety of political science topics, and those who volunteer are welcome to attend these panels once the volunteering is complete. Scholars will present work on comparative politics, American politics, international relations, political theory, political philosophy, environmental politics, law and politics, race/ethnicity and politics, and many other areas.  Information on the conference and the panels and events are here: http://wpsa.research.pdx.edu/meet/

Students who are interested in volunteering should email Professor Grose at cgrose@dornsife.usc.edu and he can provide more details. The volunteer work will consist of sitting behind a desk in the hotel and registering incoming attendees at the conference, many of whom will be professors or occasionally practitioners you may have read or heard of from your classes. Other volunteers will be responsible for maintaining the book room, where new books are sold to attendees. All volunteers are welcome to attend panels and otherwise participate in the conference during the times in which they are not volunteering.

Students will sign up to volunteer for a 3-hour shift on either Wed. Mar. 27; Thurs., Mar. 28; Fri, Mar. 39; or Sat. Mar. 30. Student volunteers are responsible and liable for their own transportation to the Hollywood Loews hotel (it is one block from the Hollywood/Highland red line train stop). This opportunity a good one for any student, but may be particularly of interest to students with strong interests in political science, international relations, law or those students interested in attending graduate school in the future.

Grace Ford Salvatori Community Service Tuition Scholarships

The Salvatori Community Scholars program provides support to advanced graduate students who are doing community-based research whose experiences with community-based organizations can lead to new opportunities for service-learning students at USC.

Scholar(s) work with JEP’s Associate Director for Research and Academic Affairs, USC faculty, and one or more community organizations to develop service-learning projects for undergraduate USC students. Projects are to be jointly determined by the needs of the community, the academic goals of the service-learning course, and the abilities and interests of the Scholar, and might include participatory action research or direct service activities. All projects must involve undergraduate students in work that builds their knowledge and skills while supporting the Scholar in a community-centered project. Ideally, the service-learning project will closely correspond to the scholarly activities of the Salvatori Community Scholar.
