Temple University is hosting a conference on student food and housing insecurity in about 2 weeks. The University is looking for volunteers to help out in 3 hour increments. If you volunteer for one of the shifts, complete the volunteer commitment and write me a 1 page reflection on your experience of what you learned and how MIS can be applied to address the challenge, I will offer 4 pts extra credit to your Exam 1.
Sara Goldrick-Rab reached out with a plea for her help yesterday. She is hosting the #RealCollege conference on October 23rd and October 24th. The conference is bringing leaders from around the country to develop solutions around student housing and food insecurity. They are overwhelmed by the interest in the conference and could use some volunteers on October 23rd and October 24th. Must submit paper and proof by Oct 26th.

This year we have challenges from QVC, Pfizer and NBCUniversal. The challenge begins on October 1 with entries due on October 31, 2017. Last year, we had over 400 students participate from six different schools and colleges. The first place winners last year were a graphic design major from the Tyler School of Art and a Kinesiology major from the College of Public Health.
We will be giving out $12,000 in prizes! MIS majors also receive points for participating! Maybe a discussion on extra credit?
We have workshops throughout the month of October to assist the students with the challenges as well as a number of mentors that hold office hours just for this. More information can be found at http://analyticschallenge.temple.edu
