First Friday report will come out this week
President Wyatt's First Friday report for October will be distributed this coming Friday, Oct. 8.  Dr. Wyatt plans to focus on the recent campus dialogue concerning strategic enrollment management.  Because he has a meeting scheduled this week with consultant Dr. Jim Black, he decided to postpone the report so that he can include his latest information.

Seminar on growing edible vaccine is Wednesday
Dr. Michael E. Horn of ProdiGene Corp. will present a seminar entitled “The Molecular Farming of an Edible Vaccine” on Wednesday, Oct. 6, at 4 p.m. in Room 107 of the ASU Biosciences Institute.  This seminar will cover his research on the development of transgenic plants for the production of edible vaccines that target the HIV virus, which causes AIDS.

Upcoming change will help manage e-mail 'blasts'
While an e-mail message is still the quickest and cheapest way to distribute information to the entire campus community, it is rarely relevant to every recipient.  Information and Technology Services is developing a new system through which campus "blasts" will be distributed in a digest format.  The advantage will be that everyone will still have access to timely information, but users will receive fewer e-mails.  Implementation is anticipated later this month.
