This fall has seen the debut of ResNet, the new campus program to wire student residence halls with Internet connections. This Web page is a good first step in researching any questions you may have about ResNet. Frequently asked questions, a good outline of support services, and "quick links" to technical information are some of the helpful resources on this page.

R4 Recycling Program


Do you know where you stand in the "enviro-conscious continuum"? If you're "environmentally aware" or an "earth sage," you probably already know what the 4 R's are, but if you're still a "fledgling," you can learn about this and a lot more by visiting this page from the Office of Environmental Services. Even earth sages might be surprised at the wide range of materials now handled by the campus recycling program, and they will certainly enjoy learning how to start or expand recycling programs in their departments. Hint: You can also reach this page by clicking on the small recycling logo on the UC Davis Home Page (http://www.ucdavis.edu/).

Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research


Research is one of UC Davis' major missions, and various campus resources and policies pertaining to research fall under the administrative umbrella of the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research. Important and timely information can be found here, from funding sources to policies and procedures. (Did you know that the University of California has a new patent policy, effective October 1, 1997?) Also available here are downloadable forms required for research administration -- both campus forms and links to some Federal agency forms.

Quick Resource Guide for Advising Students


Advising students is an important faculty function, and this page can help. Academic and career advising are covered, and faculty advisors will find information about research and internship opportunities as well as advice and policies regarding various difficult situations which may arise.
