A University of Northern Colorado faculty member was recently honored as a rising young professional at a national leadership symposium.
Travis Boyce, assistant professor of Africana Studies and Social Sciences, was honored as one of 100 rising young professionals in academia, government and industry during the 20th annual national symposium of The Leadership Alliance, a consortium of 32 institutions of higher learning that includes leading research and teaching college and universities.
The designation recognizes fellows from the alliance's Summer Research Early Identification Program who have earned a Ph.D. or an MD-Ph.D. degree. The program encourages students from groups traditionally underrepresented in the sciences, social sciences and humanities to consider research careers in the academic, public, or private sectors.
The symposium was held on July 27 in Hartford, Conn.
Boyce was a 2001 Summer Undergraduate Research Fellow at Yale University. He finished his Ph.D. at Ohio University and joined the faculty at UNC in 2009.
"The Leadership Alliance taught me the importance of maintaining a research agenda and showed me the various career opportunities one can pursue with a Ph.D.," Boyce said. "Today I incorporate these ideals in my pedagogical approach and encourage my students to use issues and literature raised in class to write research papers for professional presentation and possibly publication."
More information about The Leadership Alliance is available on its website at http://www.theleadershipalliance.org/Default.aspx.
A memorial service for Tyler Roggy, a UNC student who passed away July 29, will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 4, at Christ Community Church, 1301 15th St., in Greeley. Additional information is available in an online memory book.

If you have new employees starting work in August, the UNC Card Office and Information Management and Technology offer the following suggestions to help make the process go smoothly:
Technology ResourcesYou can request access to technology resources such as email, computer network access and Banner/Ursa as soon as a new employee has a Bear Number, even if they don't begin work until next month.
A PDID (Personal Digital ID) form can be submitted by navigating to the Technical Support website, clicking on the "Request Support" tab and then selecting the Submit a Ticket option. On the Submit a Ticket screen, select PDID Form from the drop-down list in the Website Request Types field and then complete the other fields with the new employee's information.
Submitting the form as soon as possible will help ensure that all requested access is available prior to the start of the fall semester.
If you have any questions, contact the Technical Support Center at 351-4357.
UNC ID CardIf you have a new staff or faculty member who needs their picture taken for his or her UNC ID card, send an email to Cindy Vetter, Donna Steffins or Cherise DeKraai. If you're sending it securely, include the employee's name and Bear Number.
If you're not sending it securely, just include the name and be sure the new employee brings his or her Bear Number with them to the Card Office in case the number isn't in their system.
Having the email in advance facilitates quick and prompt service to our new employees.
For office hours or questions, contact the UNC Card Office at 351-2821.
Building/Room AccessThe UNC Card Office only issues UNC identification cards and not authorization so that the card can be used to access appropriate buildings or rooms. For authorized building access, a new employee should contact their supervisor to arrange for Facilities Management to grant you either building and/or smart classroom access.
Access request cards can be sent to the Service Center at campus box 57. Please include a copy of your UNC ID Card and a Key Request Card signed by both you and the authorized signer.
Call 351-2446 if you have any questions.
