The Deans’ Office is pleased to announce that a new, enhanced version of the Credit Analysis Report is now available through the e-Portfolio.

ePortfolio login > Student Portfolio > Wesleyan Career > Credit Analysis Report.

The Credit Analysis is a review of the academic record that monitors progress towards meeting graduation requirements with regard to semesters in residence, GPA, earned and enrolled credits, and oversubscription.  It flags potential problems that may affect completion of graduation requirements, but it does not track completion of major requirements (the Major Certification Form is used to do this).

Enhancements to the new version include:

  • Academic Career-in-a-glance layout.  The first page of the report is designed to present a concise summary of progress towards meeting the graduation requirements.  Warning messages flag potential problems towards meeting these requirements.
  • Student Type tracking.  The report knows whether you are a First-Year Entrant or Transfer Student.  If you are a Transfer Student, it knows whether you are a Sophomore, Mid-Year Sophomore or Junior Transfer.
  • Semesters in Residence tracking.  The report calculates how many semesters remain to meet the residency requirement and is aware of the different residency requirements for first-year entrants and transfer students.
  • Oversubscription Calculation.  The report calculates total oversubscription to provide “Total Useable Graduation Credits.”  It also calculates oversubscription at the department and category levels and displays the number of remaining or oversubscribed credits at these levels.  The report is aware of special exceptions for students who double-major in ARHA and ARST or MATH and COMP and recalculates oversubscription limits accordingly.
  • Complete Crosslisting information.  The report identifies every department and credit category in which a course is crosslisted, regardless of the selection that may have been made during the course registration process.

The Credit Analysis is updated every evening to reflect changes in course enrollment status (drop/add transactions, withdrawals, etc.).  In addition, courses in which you are pre-registered are included in the credit analysis.  More information about the oversubscription regulation and how oversubscription is calculated can be found at http://wesleyan.edu/studentaffairs/facguide/oversub.html.

If you have questions about the Credit Analysis or if you believe your report is in error, please contact your class dean immediately.

eisnerOffered by the distinguished journalist Jane Eisner, Wesleyan’s first Koeppel Fellow in Journalism.

GOVT 190 meets Thursdays 7:00-9:50 in PAC 421.  Students may register online, the course is open to students from all four class years.

Course Description:
In this weekly writing seminar, we will explore how journalists exercise their roles as citizens, and, in turn, how journalism affects the functioning of our democracy. Using historic and contemporary examples, we will examine how, at its best, the media exposes inequity, investigates wrongdoing, gives voice to ordinary people, and encourages active citizenship.

Instructor Bio:
Jane Eisner, a pioneer in journalism, became editor of the Forward in June 2008, becoming the first woman to hold the position at the influential Jewish national weekly newspaper. Eisner held numerous executive editorial and news positions at the Philadelphia Inquirer for 25 years, including stints as editorial page editor, syndicated columnist, City Hall bureau chief and foreign correspondent. In 2006, she joined the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia, where she served as vice president for national programs and initiatives, with responsibility for all adult programming, the Liberty Medal, and the Peter Jennings Project for Journalists and the Constitution. Since 2002, Eisner has been a senior fellow at the University of Pennsylvania’s Robert A. Fox Leadership Program, as well as an adjunct professor in the school’s political science department. In 2006, she was one of three women chosen to be the first fellows of the new Katharine Houghton Hepburn Center at Bryn Mawr College, where she led conferences and workshops and was the college’s 2007 commencement speaker. In 2009, Eisner was selected to be one of 20 fellows in the Punch Sulzberger Executive News Media Leadership Program at the Columbia School of Journalism. Her book, “Taking Back the Vote: Getting American Youth Involved in our Democracy,” was published by Beacon Press in 2004. In addition to her Inquirer column “American Rhythms,” which was syndicated to 100 newspapers, Eisner has contributed articles to a number of Jewish publications, including The Reconstructionist, Ma’ayan and the Forward. She has also written for the Washington Post, Newsday, Brookings Review and Columbia Journalism Review, and served as a regular panelist on the WPVI television talk show “Inside Story.”

An active member of her local community, Eisner is a board member of the Jack M. Barrack Hebrew Academy, a past president of the Pennsylvania Women’s Forum, a former trustee and secretary of The Philadelphia Award, and a mentor with Philadelphia Futures. Nationally, she is a member of the Columbia School of Journalism Alumni Board, the National Conference on Citizenship’s advisory committee, and the Encore Leadership Network. Eisner received a master’s degree from Columbia University’s School of Journalism and graduated from Wesleyan University cum laude in 1977, where she was the first female editor of the college newspaper and was a member of the board of trustees. She recently was the first woman to win Wesleyan’s McConaughy Award for contributions to journalism and public life.

Good news! If you missed the pre-registration deadline for the advanced creative writing workshops (ENGL 326, 337, and 342), please note that there is now a second deadline: January 18, 2010, the Monday before the semester begins.

Please submit these materials electronically in a single attachment to the professor who is teaching the course (see below) by 10 a.m. on Monday, January 18, 2010. Please use either Microsoft Word or rich-text-format for your attachment.
