There was a nice article for HWC and the CCC Physics program from the most recent edition of the American Physical Society newsletter. http://www.aps.org/units/fed/newsletters/fall2013/upload/fall13.pdf The article is regarding a recent APS Committee on Education meeting hosted by HWC. The article mentions Professors Anthony Escuadro, Jaime Millan, and Phillip Vargas by name. Also attending the meeting were Profs. David Zoller (Olive Harvey) and Joshua Odalipo (Malcolm X), who deserve equal praise for their representation of CCC Physics. Read more here https://hwcollege.wordpress.com/faculty/faculty-service/

New guidelines for hiring outside speakers:
$1,000 is considered as a reasonable stipend to pay speakers, but does require a justification.
$1,000 – $2,000 will need a very strong rationale
Over $2,000 would be considered excessive and need an extraordinary justification.
Have a great weekend!
