Welcome Project

The Welcome Project, created by Associate Professor of Art Liz Wuerffel and Associate Professor of English Allison Schuette, collects oral histories about the complexity of living together amidst increasing diversity and difference. Students, faculty, and staff at Valparaiso University and members of the surrounding community tell stories that are captured in video or audio format by Professors Wuerffel and Schuette and their students.

The Welcome Project has collected more than 300 interviews and posted more than 230 stories to their website – welcomeproject.valpo.edu. For details and to find out how you can be involved, email allison.schuette@valpo.edu.

BECOME A SMARTER PROBLEM SOLVER

On campus, you’re best resource is the Office of Continuous Improvement (OCI). Its primary goal is to improve process efficiency and effectiveness at Valparaiso University. They are here to help not only departments, but also student organizations. Continuous improvement means evaluating processes regularly using proven methods and tools to ensure that expected outcomes are achieved in the most efficient way possible. While individuals make incremental improvements every day, rapid improvement that crosses departments can be difficult. To request an OCI consultation for your student organization go to helpdesk.valpo.edu.

OCI has a great resource list on its site, including an infographic charting the anatomy of a great meeting, and Six Sigma Toolbox. Go to valpo.edu/it/oci/oci-resources.
