Karen Obringer, Ann Livschiz, and Jill Parker
Faculty Liaison Award
Since 2006, Career Services has developed partnerships with nearly every department on campus through their Faculty Liaison program. 
Faculty Liaisons have been especially supportive this year, and Career Services decided to acknow-ledge one individual for their outstanding advocacy of and support for Career Services.  
The nominees were Wilson Liang (Manufacturing & Construction Engineering Technology and Interior Design), Christopher Bradley (Sociology), Kathy Pollock (Accounting and Finance), Irwin Mallin (Communication), Mark DeLancey (Theatre), Ann Livschiz (History), and Ron Friedman (Chemistry). Based upon her work with Karen Obringer on the new History department internship program, Professor Ann Livschiz was selected to receive the 2010 Faculty Liaison Award and was presented a certificate and cash award.

IPFW Construction Update Mastodon and crane
The Walb Union loading dock was relocated May 10 to its new permanent location at the construction area adjacent to Parking Garage 2. The access road to the existing Walb and Gates docks is closed. Access to the Gates loading dock is closed at this time. Traffic signs with directions will be posted. Deliveries to Gates should be coordinated with Greg Justice.
Parking Lot 11 adjacent to the Gates Center is now closed. Access to Gates will not be available from the east side this summer. Patrons should park in the garage and use the construction route around the south side of Walb to access Gates.
