11:30 am - 1:00 pm    Mindset

Workshop / Student Affairs

From earliest childhood, we establish a fixed or growth mindset. Those who foster a fixed mindset believe their abilities are limited and worry excessively about meeting the expectations of others, living in fear of judgment. They under-perform due to perfectionism and anxiety and avoid or make excuses. Those with a growth mindset believe anything is possible with effort. They are willing to take healthy risks and view challenges as opportunities. They perform to their ability and often exceed the expectations of others, but aren’t afraid to fail, viewing mistakes as key to learning. This workshop will outline the characteristics of the growth mindset; provide examples from academics, the arts, athletics and business; and summarize activities conducive to the development of such a perspective.

5:30 pm - 8:30 pm    If These Halls Could Talk-Film/Diversity Dialogue with Director, Lee Mun Wah

Special Event / Access & Diversity Center

Director Lee Mun Wah brought together 11 college students to discuss what it is like on campuses across the country today. The students shared the frustration and anguish of trying to be understood and acknowledged on campuses that are predominantly white. Their stories are starkly emotional and raw, filled with incredible tenderness, courage and pain. The issues that they challenge us to look at are equally provocative, begging to be heard and confronted. If you've wondered why students/faculty of color are leaving our campuses, if you struggle to understand students from other cultures, if you don’t know what to say or do when a conflict occurs around diversity issues, this film will help model for you what it will take to have conversations on diversity that are both authentic and life-changing. This film will provide a glimpse into what is still missing and what is needed if we are ever going to come together in our classrooms, on our campuses and in our communities.

Parasites and pathogens are among the most common forms of life on earth, and only in the past few decades have ecologists come to recognize the fundamental role these organisms play in the ecology and evolution of their much larger animal hosts. Microscopic parasites are often important determinants of fundamental macroscopic processes of interest to most wildlife ecologists (e.g. behavior, competition, predation). In this talk I discuss how the inclusion of parasites and infectious diseases in ecological studies is enhancing our general understanding of the ecological and evolutionary dynamics of wildlife populations.

Lecture & Readings / Ecology Center

Dr. Vanessa Ezenwa (University of Georgia):“From host immunity to pathogen invasion: linking helminth co-infection and microparasite dynamics.” Interactions between parasites co-occurring within a single host can have profound effects on the host response to infection. Although key immunological mechanisms underlying these within-host interactions between co-infecting parasites have been described, the ecological consequences of these interactions are poorly understood. In particular, it is unclear if and when interactions between co-infecting parasites can alter population level patterns of infectious disease. In this talk, I discuss how immunological processes underlying parasite interactions within individual hosts can scale up to affect the population level dynamics of disease. The study provides insight into the role that within-host processes can play in the distribution and spread of infectious diseases in the wild.

Arts & Entertainment / Outdoor Recreation Center

Before resorts, lift tickets and overpriced pizza, there was adventure in skiing. Before the mountains were harnessed with lifts, bound with ropes and scarred with designated runs, they were wild. Actions with consequences were chosen and the individual was held responsible. No liability forms or waivers. The lifts came and made the mountains small, tame and, in time, boring. We were sold that THIS is skiing. And we obeyed. With this resurgence into the backcountry we look for real adventure beyond the tightly wound, firmly stretched orange and black ropes that “protect” us from knowing freedom.

The benefits of livestock grazing in Utah are often unseen or misunderstood. Cattle and sheep are more than just a source of local food.

Livestock ranching continues a family tradition in the West that strengthens communities with jobs and economic activity. Come see how these cows are considered the best friends of hundreds of bird and wildlife species in Northern Utah. Presenting will be Bill Fenimore, a leading Audubon Society Council leader in Utah, Bill Hopkin, a former manager of one of Utah’s largest cattle ranches, and USU Economics professor, Dr. Paul Jakus.
