ICoP November Meeting – Thank-You’s
Our ICoP November meeting was another success with inspiring speakers, new and familiar participants, and great discussions! We would like to reiterate our appreciation for the guest speakers, Dr. Hillel Goelman and Kevin Mehr representing the Interdisciplinary Studies Graduate Program (ISGP) and the Interdisciplinary Graduate Student Network (iGSN) respectively, as well as for those who came to the meeting. We highly recommend those of you who couldn’t make it to the meeting to check out these vibrant and resourceful interdisciplinary groups, if you don’t know them yet.
ICoP Co-Facilitator Position Open
Because of the lively discussions at the meeting, we ran out of time to make an announcement about an ICoP co-facilitator position. Because Hanae’s role as an ICoP facilitator has been interim, we are looking for an interdisciplinary enthusiast to work with the other co-facilitator, Jackie. This role will offer you great opportunities for leadership, facilitation, networking, and more. Please check out the Cofacilitator role description for details and contact us with interest or questions. Our contact is in the document.

Please note that the proposal submission deadline for the Out of the Box conference is approaching on November 30th. The conference will be on March 21, 2014 at the Liu Institute for Global Issues, UBC.
ICoP February 2014 Meeting
Please mark your calender for our next ICoP meeting on Wednesday, February 12th, 2014, 2:30-4:30pm. Please watch out for more details to come. In the meantime, please contact us with a suggestion or idea for our future meeting in February or after, and we wish you the best with the rest of the term and happy holidays!
Jackie Davis & Hanae Tsukada, ICoP Co-Facilitators
