2019-2021 Brown Teacher-Scholar Fellowship Announced

The Brown Center for Faculty Innovation and Excellence is pleased to announce that the 2019-2021 Brown Teacher-Scholar Fellowship has been awarded in Public History. Public historians are committed to representing community and group histories from a wide range of perspectives and to broadening public understandings of historical narratives.

The proposal for a Brown Teacher-Scholar Fellow in Public History was spearheaded by chair of the History Department, Dr. Emily Mieras, in collaboration with her colleagues, Dr. Mayhill Fowler and Dr. Kimberly Reiter. This proposal supports a growing curricular innovation in the Department of History with the goal of developing additional community-based public history research projects and meeting key curricular needs. The fellow, who will join the Stetson faculty in 2019, will collaborate with faculty to meet these goals.

“We are thrilled to have this opportunity to bring an expert in Public History to campus to share their knowledge with our students and with us. This concentration has already had wide appeal, and the fellow’s expertise will help us develop new courses and applied research projects, not only for our majors, but for any students interested in how history emerges in public spaces and cultural conversations,” Mieras said.

IT Reaches 100,000 Ticket Milestone!

IT recently closed its 100,000th Zendesk user request since the ticketing system (to track requests) was implemented in October of 2012! As we continue to support you, we’d like to share some advancements facilitated by Zendesk.

The system has enabled us to streamline the management of over 60,000 user accounts and 18,000 requests per year. This is based largely on the ability provided within Zendesk to document solutions for challenges faced by users. We also routinely leverage our internal knowledge-base for the multitude of specialized systems and software packages utilized by the University. This has proven to be an invaluable reference tool in upgrading and maintaining our systems as well as supporting users. Moreover, by proficiently assisting prospective students with their accounts and other technical questions, we are able to make a positive first impression of the University. 

Following the One Stetson-One IT initiative, Zendesk was deployed across all four campus locations — working together more effectively, efficiently and economically.

We encourage you to continue to utilize the post-ticket feedback and comments offered by Zendesk, as they are very helpful to us and much appreciated.
