Crucial Conversations
8:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Consider these questions:

Does your department suffer from taboo topics, deference, disagreement, analysis paralysis, information hoarding, office politics, or alienation?  Is your department battling slow productivity or low morale? Are you a supervisor who struggles with having difficult conversations with employees?  Then you, your team, or your department needs Crucial Conversations training.

Crucial Conversations is a two-day course that teaches skills for creating alignment and agreement by fostering open dialogue around high-stakes, emotional, or risky topics – at all levels of the organization.  By learning how to speak and be heard (and encouraging others to do the same), you’ll surface the best ideas, make the highest-quality decisions, and then act on your decisions with unity and commitment.

The CU Boulder Department of Human Resources has teamed up with VitalSmarts to offer this important course to CU Boulder employees. Based on the national best-selling book Crucial Conversations: Tools for Talking when the Stakes are High, the Crucial Conversations course teaches participants to speak persuasively, not abrasively; foster teamwork and better decision making; build acceptance rather than resistance; and resolve individual and group disagreements. See the attached document for a detailed description of the course.

Who Should Attend: Crucial Conversations training is appropriate for employees at all levels of the organization. Supervisors, managers, and executive leaders will find the course to be particularly relevant to their work.

Cost: $210 (The course fee includes a Crucial Conversations Toolkit, cue cards for each lesson, a Crucial Conversations model card, a copy of the New York Times bestselling book, Crucial Conversations: Tools for Talking When Stakes are High, the Crucial Conversations audio companion MP3 download, and a course completion certificate).

(If you were to take this course directly from VitalSmarts, the cost would be $1,395. But because we have certified CU Boulder trainers to deliver the course, we are able to offer it to CU Boulder employees for $210! Don’t miss this opportunity to receive this incredible training that is transforming organizations around the country!)

Tuition Classification 101: Emancipation
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Location: Regent Administrative Center, room 1B60 (lower level)

Anyone interested in petitioning for Colorado residency may attend an on-campus Tuition Classification 101 session; attendance is required for students needing to prove emancipation.

Sessions are scheduled monthly on the second and fourth Monday and the first and third Thursday from 2 to 3 p.m. (excluding holidays) during the semester. Seating is limited, so please reserve your seat by clicking the Register icon. An email with specific directions to the session will be sent out prior to the event.

Attending one of these sessions is the only way to obtain a residency petition for emancipation.

Algebraic Multigrid (AMG) for Graph Laplacian Linear Systems: Extensions of AMG for Signed, Undirected and Unsigned, Directed Graphs

Graph Laplacian linear systems are often used to model relationships between objects.
Often the data is modeled as an unsigned, undirected graph due the nice properties of the resulting graph Laplacian, but information may be lost if certain attributes of the graph are not represented. This talk presents two generalizations of AMG solvers for graph Laplacian systems for different graph types:  applying Gremban’s expansion to extend unsigned graph Laplacian solvers to signed graph Laplacian systems and generalizing techniques in Lean Algebraic Multigrid to a new multigrid solver for unsigned, directed graph Laplacian systems.

Signed graphs extend the traditional notion of connections and disconnections to include both favorable and adverse relationships, such as friend-enemy social networks. Gremban's expansion is used to transform the signed graph Laplacian into an unsigned graph Laplacian with twice the number of unknowns. By using Gremban's expansion, we can extend current unsigned graph Laplacian solvers to signed graph Laplacians. The numerical stability and applicability of Gremban's expansion is analyzed and it is proved that the error of the solution of the original linear system can be tightly bounded by the error of the expanded system.

In directed graphs, information flows from a vertex to another vertex in one direction, such as hyperlink graphs, biological neural networks, and electrical power grids. A new algebraic multigrid algorithm, Nonsymmetric Lean Algebraic Multigrid (NS-LAMG), is proposed, which uses ideas from Lean Algebraic Multigrid, nonsymmetric Smoothed Aggregation, and multigrid solvers for Markov chain stationary distribution systems. Low-degree elimination, introduced in Lean Algebraic Multigrid for undirected graphs, is redefined for directed graphs. A semi-adaptive multigrid solver, inspired by low-degree elimination, is instrumented in the setup phase, which can be adapted for Markov chain stationary distributions systems. Numerical results show that NS-LAMG out performs GMRES(k) for real-world, directed graph Laplacian linear systems. Both generalizations improve the ability to include more realism and/or detailed attributes in modeling decisions for graph Laplacian systems.

Event Image Lecture: "Rule of Law vs. Equity in the Lawcourts of Classical Athens"
4:30 PM - 6:00 PM

Professor Sara Forsdyke, University of Michigan at Ann Arbor, will lecture on the "Rule of Law vs. Equity in the Lawcourts of Classical Athens." There has been a long-running debate about the extent to which the ideal of the rule of law determined the decisions of the courts of democratic Athens. Forsdyke attempts to resolve the debate by breaking down the concept of the rule of law into its central components and then demonstrating that the Athenians ascribed to some but not other components of this ideal. Most importantly, she demonstrates that the principle of Legal Certainty--a central component of most modern concepts of the Rule of Law—was significantly undermined by the value the Athenians placed on considerations of equity.

The event is sponsored by Graduate Committee on the Arts Humanities; Center for Western Civilization, Thought and Policy; and the Department of Classics.
