Faculty and Staff Volunteers Needed for Move-In Weekend

The energy of campus elevates when we welcome our new students and their families to campus each year. We invite faculty and staff to join us for the 16th year of the Move-In Volunteers initiative. We need you to help welcome our new students to campus. Move a couple of crates, give directions or be a friendly face for incoming Huskies and their families.

Volunteer shifts for faculty, staff and students are available on Aug. 18 and Aug. 19. Please register by Aug. 11 to volunteer. You can choose to be a move-in helper or greeter, or provide traffic flow support. If you have the availability, feel free to volunteer for more than one shift.

You will also be asked to provide your contact information and T-shirt size. In keeping with the University's sustainability efforts, we will have a similar Welcome Crew shirt design as in past Move-Ins, so you may wear a previous year’s shirt if you have one.

Additional information about your Move-In volunteer shift will be emailed the week of Aug. 13. If you have any questions, contact the Waino Wahtera Center for Student Success at success@mtu.edu or 906-487-3558. Thank you in advance for supporting our new students!

Safe and Inclusive Off-Campus Research Plan Workshop

The Office of the Associate Vice President for Research Development (AVPRD) invites researchers to a workshop on developing safe and inclusive off-campus research (SAI) plans. These plans are required when any MTU researcher develops a funding proposal that will include the collection of data, information and/or samples at an off-campus research site, including urban, rural and remote locations or other organizations' facilities. The two-hour session will provide background information and an opportunity to develop a strong and effective plan with feedback from experienced peers.

The workshop is scheduled for Aug. 2 from noon to 2 p.m. Lunch will be provided. Questions can be directed to Sarah Atkinson at sjbird@mtu.edu or Kathy Halvorsen at kehalvor@mtu.edu.

Please RSVP to Research Development’s Sarah Atkinson at sjbird@mtu.edu by Wednesday (July 26) if you would like to attend.

In the News

Michigan Business Network picked up a press release from U.S. Sen. Gary Peters that mentioned Michigan Tech. The press release was about funding legislation passed by the Senate Appropriations Committee that could bring $250,000 to MTU. The funds are intended to help the University create a small business accelerator “to support research and jobs related to advanced materials and critical minerals used in the automotive and defense industries."


A blog post written by Steven Elmer (KIP) and Ph.D. student Isaac Lennox (kinesiology) was published on the I Spy Physiology Blog, the blog of the American Physiological Society. The topic was the health benefits of pedaling a stationary bicycle with one leg instead of two, which decreases the demand on the heart and lungs and allows more oxygen-rich blood to be sent to the working leg muscles.


Michigan Tech was mentioned by Lake Superior Magazine in a story about notable residents of the region with Finnish heritage. Former MTU hockey players Tanner Kero and Blake Pietila were listed among the famous Finns who made it to the National Hockey League.


WJJQ Northwoods 92.5 of Tomahawk, WI mentioned Michigan Tech in a story about undergraduate student Cody Scholz (civil engineering), who will be running the Wausau Marathon to raise funds for families who have lost a family member in active duty military service.
