Constitution Day 2016

Posted by
In observance of Constitution Day on Saturday, September 17, 2016, please visit the following link to learn more about The United States Constitution.

​CONSTITUTION CENTER

The Constitution of the United States of America

On September 17, 1787, the Founding Fathers (John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Alexander Hamilton, John Jay, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and George Washington) signed the most influential document in American history: the United States Constitution. This document established the framework of our government and the rights and freedoms that “We the People” enjoy today.

 

What is Constitution Day?
Constitution Day became a national observance in 2004, when Senator Robert Byrd lobbied for a bill designating September 17 as the day for citizens to commemorate the signing of the U.S. Constitution and learn more about our founding document. Senator Byrd once said, “Our ideals of freedom, set forth and realized in our Constitution, are our greatest export to the world.” He added the Constitution Day clause to his 2004 federal spending bill because he believed that all citizens should know about their rights as outlined in the Constitution. This clause mandates the teaching of the Constitution in schools that receive federal funds, as well as federal agencies.

 

One of the rights and freedoms afforded to US citizens was the right to vote.  Please remember to register to vote and take part in the election process this year.  Student Government Association is hosting voter registration days on Monday, October 3 and Tuesday, October 4, 2016. Don’t let this critical election cycle go by without lending your voice.  Your vote counts!!!

Mandatory Compliance Training

Posted by
Mandatory Compliance Training is an online course that all Martin University administrators, full-time and adjunct instructors, staff and most importantly students must complete.  
Access the course by clicking “eThink”.  NOTE this course must be accessed via Firefox NOT Explorer. You will find the compliance course easy to navigate.
Check your Martin student e-mail or employee e-mail for specific login information and for instructions on completing ALL test requirements.
Why must I take this online course?  This course is designed to ensure the Martin University is in compliance with TITLE IX.  Title IX is a federal law that prohibits discrimination based on sex with respects to educational programs and activities. It prohibits gender based discrimination that includes harassment, both verbal and nonverbal, physical aggression, intimidation and/or hostility. This law requires all educational institutions that receive federal funding comply.  The Department of Education Office of Civil Rights (OCR) has indicated that an institution who fails to comply can face serious sanctions which can include the loss of federal funding.  Note, for most institutions, the loss of federal funding could lead to that institutions closing its doors. The underline purpose of this law is to ensure the safety of all individuals within the University community, especially the students. This is why it is important for everyone in the University community to complete the mandatory compliance training.
If you have questions regarding access, contact Andy Gothreau at agouthreau@martin.edu.
Let’s make this school term a safe and enjoyable for everyone!
