Don't forget that a $200 award is up for grabs for the student who can do more push-ups than Environmental Science and Natural Resources Professor Dr. Bill Mader. Dr. Mader said he's confident a millennial wouldn't be able to beat him in something that requires physical activity.
For any student wanting to participate, a table will be set up at the NTU Wellness Center today, April 24, 2019 where a recorder will track how many push-ups you are able to consistently do (set up from 9 am - 4 pm, break at noon). The top 5 students will then have a day to rest, and then go head to head at 9:30 am on April 25th at the 2019 Diné Maker Nation Faire in the NTU Wellness Center.
The winner of the 9:30 am heat will then go against Dr. Mader at 10:30 am. This is a FREE event and any student may sign up. They must show a current NTU student ID. Please spread the word about this amazing opportunity to gain an easy $200 (only for the student who beats Dr. Mader

The sessions will be informal and will be set up gallery style. Each session will allow faculty, students, staff, and community members to give their feedback on the goals that were identified during the first round of feedback we received last fall semester. In total, we received input from 107 individuals. The priorities that emerged from those sessions included:
1. Institutional Advancement
- Operations (Finance/Purchasing, Safety and Security, Communication)
- Infrastructure (Housing, Information Technology, Campus/Site Development)
- Planning (Community Engagement, Data and Assessment, Personnel)
2. Academic Advancement
- Academic Excellence (Quality, Resources, Support)
- Retention (Tutoring and Mentorship, Student Services, Onboarding)
- Graduation (Advising, Online Education, Job Placement)

On Monday, April 22, 2019, NTU will be participating in the Crownpoint community clean up effort. A canopy will be set up at the entrance of campus and NTU's Maintenance Department and the Navajo Club will be coordinating efforts. The goal is to clean up on the extremities of campus and along our fence lines. Other agencies working on the clean up include: IHS, the Crownpoint Chapter, Workforce Development, Behavioral Health, and 4-H.
Attached is a flyer for the Crownpoint Chapter's cleanup. In addition to focusing our clean up on April 22, we'll also be doing extra clean up on Friday, April 26, 2019. If you'd like to participate, we'll have our canopy set up by 9 AM at the entrance of campus on Monday morning. We'll have bags, water, and gloves ready for distribution.
