2 new sections of Intensive Writing courses just opened for Summer 2020 (online)
The Department of Criminal Justice has added two online 400-level Intensive Writing courses for the Summer 2020 term. One is a second section of CJUS-P 414 for the first 6 weeks term, while CJUS-P 407 is being offered during the second 6 weeks.
CJUS-P 414: Adolescents and the Law
This course examines the place of adolescents in American law and policy. Students explore the foundations of adolescents’ rights, their limits, and their relationship to changing sociocultural images of adolescents. The course focuses on the ideological conflicts between the proper role of adolescents, parents and communities in ensuring adolescents’ rights. The conflicting ideologies are addressed specifically from the perspective of adolescents themselves. Students who do well in this class (1) will have learned how the social sciences generally approach the period of adolescence, (2) will be able to articulate different myths about the period of adolescence and their influence on the manner society regulates adolescents, (3) will understand how the legal system regulates families as well as adolescents, (4) will appreciate the importance of civil rights in addressing issues relating to criminal justice as well as broader justice, (5) will understand how to read case law as well as develop a working knowledge of key legal issues such as the right to privacy, due process, equal protection, seizure, punishment, as well as how the legal system generally approaches constitutional rights.
CJUS-P 407: Terrorism
Terrorism is a serious challenge today and its policing demands varied responses. In this course we study how terrorists evolve and carry out their operations. The course will analyze police responses and debate the issues of legal boundaries and systems of checks and balances using case studies.
Both sections are open for all students, so the seats could go quickly!

Online Chemistry Tutoring – Spring 2020
Chemistry tutoring is moving online!
Each semester, the Department of Chemistry offers free tutoring services in the library which support general chemistry and organic chemistry courses. If you have not used this service in the past, perhaps you will in future semesters when we are back on campus.
At present, tutors will still be available for your questions from March 30 – April 29 (week 15). No tutoring services are available during finals week in any semester.

The official list of all Intensive Writing sections offered in Fall 2020 is posted here. However, as of 4/15/20 at 8:30 a.m., the link is mislabeled as Fall 2019. If you click on Fall 2019, it’s actually Fall 2020 (as the header of the next page makes clear). This has been reported and will undoubtedly soon be fixed.
So go to that page , click Fall 2019, and then click the Intensive Writing Courses link. This is a list of all Intensive Writing courses offered in Fall 2020, with available seats updated as of midnight last night showing in the far right column.
The other way to find Intensive Writing courses is to use iGPS Course Search and click the filter for COLL Intensive Writing Sections. Important: once you get a preliminary list of results in iGPS Course Search, always click into the actual course itself, and after you choose one, make sure your specific section has Intensive Writing credit listed in the course notes.
Amidst COVID-19 resulting in the shutdown of schools and businesses, many individuals are stuck at home, out of their normal routine.
Phi Delta Epsilon, a co-ed, pre-med fraternity at IUB, has launched a program called “Quarantine Buddies,” in which students, professors, and anyone else interested can be matched with someone similar to them (ex: similar interests, similar areas of study) to help combat the increase in depression, lack of motivation, and overall loneliness that is a byproduct of social distancing.
Whether it be weekly video calls or daily texts, it is fully at the discretion of each pair how the communication occurs. Anyone interested can fill out the form in the link provided below. They will receive a short introductory email and then be responsible for staying in contact with their match.
This pandemic is easier fought together and no one should be alone.
