OMA&D Academic Counseling Services

The American Diabetes Association has a volunteer opportunity for you!  Every year, the ADA organizes a week long summer camp for kids with diabetes.  It is a very unique camp because it is integrated into a traditional summer camp with kids who do not have diabetes.  The ADA’s role is to manage all of the medical care for the diabetic campers so they can enjoy summer camp!  We plan to have 75 campers this summer, out of about 250 kids total.  It takes a lot of volunteers to make this camp
happen; we are very interested in involving students who are going into the healthcare field and who want to learn more
about taking care of kids with diabetes.

The ADA Diabetes Camp is held at Camp Sealth on Vashon Island.  It will be from Monday August 3rd to Saturday August 8th, 2015.  Volunteers need to be able to stay at Camp Sealth for least 3 days but are welcome to stay for the entire week. Room and board are provided. Volunteer duties include helping kids check their blood glucose levels and managing them if they are too high or too low.  No prior experience with this is needed, although it is helpful, as there will be training before camp to teach you everything you need to know!

If you are interested in helping out, please email Karlie Hailstone

at the ADA for more information. She can be reached at KHailstone@diabetes.org.

The Office of Community Standards and Student Conduct is currently seeking new student members for the University Disciplinary Committee (UDC).  The University Disciplinary Committee is comprised of students and faculty who hear disciplinary cases on behalf of the University. Students who have allegedly violated the Student Conduct Code can appear before the University Disciplinary Committee or may choose to have an informal hearing with a Community Standards and Student Conduct Hearing Officer.  Additionally, the UDC hears appeals of cases in which a student may have been found responsible for a violation of the code but the student disagrees with the initial finding or sanctions.

New student members will begin their one-year term in January 2015 and will complete their term at the end of December 2015. In order to serve on the University Disciplinary Committee, students must be enrolled full-time (either undergraduate or graduate) and be in good academic standing. Additionally, students must be able to commit to meeting as a committee 5-7 hours per month and should be interested in gaining leadership skills through serving on this University Wide Committee.

Students are selected at random from those students who identify an interest in the University Disciplinary Committee and then training is provided for those selected. This year’s first required training for all new UDC members will be held at the beginning of Winter quarter in January and details will be provided to selected students.

If you are interested in submitting your name for random selection of students to serve on the UDC, please email me directly at jadraper@uw.edu. In your email, please include your name, major, college or school, and year in school. This is the only information I need prior to randomly selecting students. The deadline to submit your name for random selection is 5pm on Monday, November 10th. Students will be notified via email whether or not they have been selected by Tuesday, November 18th.
