Update on Adjunct Professional Development Grant recipients
The following UST faculty received an award from the Adjunct Professional Development Grant. Applications are still being accepted.
In an ideal world, none of our students would feel uncomfortable because of their race, cultural background, or gender in our classrooms.

Watching Myself Teach
I am not typically impressed by new gadgets. Although I do still love my first-generation Kindle, I have only had a smartphone for a few months, and I do not own an i-Pod or i-Pad or any device with a lower case “i” in front of it.
But I am impressed by Swivl.
