ECM website offers space overviews: Event and Classroom Management (ECM) oversees a large number of spaces on behalf of Arts, Sciences & Engineering, including classrooms, conference rooms, computer labs, and event spaces. ECM also provides service to a number of locations that the office does not directly manage including spaces in the Campus Center (Wilson Commons and Douglass Commons), Rush Rhees Library, the Interfaith Chapel, and others. Visit Rochester.edu/college/ecm/locations/overview.html to learn more about the features of each available space, including photos.
The ECM Help Desk provides on-call assistance, deliverable items, and additional training to support audio-visual technology in classrooms and event spaces across AS&E. See additional information and resources for faculty, including a video about the Help Desk.
ORCID research resource available: ORCID—of which the University is a member—has become a global standard for disambiguating authors and for sharing information across the research information ecosystem. The resource takes advantage of linked data to limit the amount of time one needs to manage their scholarly identity. For example:
- A researcher can use their ORCID profile to streamline the creation of a NIH Biosketch by automatically importing publication information.
- If a researcher submits an NIH grant and includes their ORCID, the NIH will automatically update their ORCID profile when they receive the grant.
- If an author submits a manuscript using their ORCID, a participating publisher will automatically add that paper to their ORCID profile once it’s published.
Contact your AS&E subject librarian if you require assistance with establishing your ORCID profile.
Use first-year student instead of freshman: In an effort to avoid gender bias and be more inclusive in our writing, the College will be using the term “first-year” instead of “freshman/freshmen” wherever possible on its web pages. Content writers and editors (for the web and print) are asked to use the same. Examples: A group of first-year students convened on the quad or A group of first-years convened on the quad; She is a first-year student. Note: phrase “first year” (no hyphen) refers to a year, not a student. Example: Incoming students participate in orientation during their first year at the University. Questions?
