Meetings cover a broad array of topics that align with CNI's interests as reflected in the current Program Plan -- a snapshot of plans and priorities for the year as of early November.
The South Asian American Digital Archive (SAADA) aims to "create a more inclusive society by giving voice to South Asian Americans through documenting, preserving, and sharing stories that represent their unique and diverse experiences." Readers may like to begin by reading the excellent short essay, "An Introduction to South Asian American History," which can be located under the Resources tab. From there, readers may browse the site by Theme, Subject, Collection, Source, Time Period, and other options. Tides, the online magazine of the archive, is another interesting feature of the site. Here readers will find articles that examine such issues as growing up South Asian in Queens, the effects of the 1965 Immigration Act, and the yoga scare that swept the nation in 1927.

These interactive learning objects focus on concepts that cover a broad-based electromechanical program. The majority of these objects have been created for electronics, but during the next three years (until 2008), at least 300 more objects will be built that will focus on other topic areas such as hydraulics, pneumatics, mechanical design, and process control (see complete list on the left side of this page). Instructors from Fox Valley Technical College and other colleges in the Wisconsin Technical College System are creating these objects. FVTC has partnered with four other colleges throughout the United States that will be contributing to this repository. The effectiveness of learning objects was demonstrated in an evaluation conducted at FVTC during the 2004-2005 academic year. A brief summary of the evaluation can be read by clicking on the Assessment button on this Home Page. These objects can also be found on the Wisc-Online digital library at www.wisconline.org. Learning objects are available to be used at no cost by teachers and students worldwide via the Internet.
