Comprehensive Immigration Reform

Be sure to join US Congressman Scott Peters and a panel to discuss immigration reform on November 7, 12:15-1:15pm in Hahn UC Forum B.

You can also check out USD's Comprehensive Immigration Reform website for more information.

Women of Impact Nominations Due

The Women’s Center is now accepting nominations for the 2013 Women of Impact Awards. Members of the university community are invited to nominate female students, faculty, administrators, and staff who have had a profound impact on the USD community through their work and connection with others.

All nominees will receive an invitation to attend the Women of Impact Luncheon on Friday, December 6th where they will be honored as strong women exhibiting leadership and positively influencing the USD community.

A diverse group of USD community members will review the nominations and select one student, one staff, one administrator, and one faculty member to receive this year’s award. Recipients’ names will be displayed on a plaque that hangs in the Women’s Center.

The Women’s Center encourages you to participate in the tradition of honoring USD women by submitting a nomination. The nomination form can be found at under “Women of Impact”. Nominations are due by November 4th.

Thank you for your support of this important tradition!

Content Management System

Starting this semester, the USD Web Team will be transitioning all USD websites from Contribute to a new content management system (CMS) called Cascade. If you are a website manager, please note that in order to retain managerial access to your website(s), you will need to take the Cascade training that the Web Team is offering.

More information regarding student trainings will be available soon.
