Welcome to the Circle Ten Council University of Scouting!
On behalf of Circle Ten Council and the 2012 University of Scouting team I welcome you to this year’s event at Southern Methodist
University in Dallas, Texas.

The University of Scouting courses are designed to help YOU improve your skills and increase your knowledge about Cub Scouting,
Boy Scouting, Varsity, Venturing, Commissioner Service and related subjects. We have organized a single day packed with a year’s
worth of fun, program ideas, and information – the largest single training event for adult leaders in Circle Ten Council! In addition,
you’ll have the opportunity to meet and share ideas with other Scouters throughout the area. We encourage you to use your time
between classes for Scouter networking – meet up with old friends, make new friends, enjoy a great lunch (subsidized again this
year by Jason’s Deli). Don’t forget to visit the University Midway throughout the day for great Scouting ideas, information and
products.

Of course, we could not do this without the exceptional dedication and support of many volunteers. From instructors to the
administrative staff, I thank you for your efforts to make this a spectacular event.

We are pleased to host our event at Southern Methodist University again this year and are very fortunate to have access to an
exceptional facility. The staff and administration of the Lyle School of Engineering and Cox School of Business have spent many hours
working with us and have been gracious in their assistance to our staff.

New for 2012 is the creation of the College of Venturing and College of General Studies. All Colleges have added several new courses
and we have expanded from the Cox School of Business to the Bobby Lyle School of Engineering. We have also established a
University Midway to highlight our partnerships with our local vendors and charitable organizations.

This document has all the information you need to plan your day and to be prepared. Please take a few minutes to review, learn
how to read the schedules and understand how you can pre-plan your classes so when it comes time to register online you will have
all the information you need. Should you still have any questions please feel free to contact me by sending email to
chancellor@c10univ.org.

A friendly reminder to all participants including staff: You MUST check in at the registration hall regardless if you have pre-
registered. Please refer to the section below on Location, Facilities and Parking on page 4. Check-in tables will be clearly marked.

Please be sure to review the Participant Responsibilities and Code of Conduct sections on Page 6.

Participant check-in and walk-up registration begins at 7:00am. As you might imagine, with over 600 expected participants, lines can
become quite long and rooms crowded. Please don’t wait until the last minute to check-in and register. Be sure to join us in the
Hillcrest Foundation Amphitheatre, located in the Lyle School of Engineering courtyard behind Caruth, at 8:00am for our opening,
announcements and updates.
                                                                               2012 University of Scouting Administration

Vision, Mission and Organization
Our VISION is to provide you with the best possible opportunity to improve your capability as an adult Scout leader and improve
your productivity so that you may accomplish more in less time. The motivation is our desire to provide the highest possible quality
Scouting experience for our youth.

To accomplish our vision our mission is to provide North Texas Scouters a distinctive educational experience including a broad array
of introductory, supplemental, and advanced training for all Boy Scouts of America (BSA) adult leader positions in support of every
youth program area including Commissioner Science activities. As such, we hope to provide the most comprehensive range of
training courses of any BSA training venue in the region.

The Circle Ten Council University of Scouting (UoS) course offerings are organized into five colleges. Each college provides unique
support of their respective area and is led by a Dean who is responsible for courses and instructors in their respective area.
Additionally, the UoS hosts a University Midway where participants will find organizations (profit, not-for-profit, service and
community based) which support the Boy Scouts of America.

For the year 2012 we have the following areas:

              1. College of Cub Scouting                                  4. College of Commissioner Science
              2. College of Boy Scouting and Varsity                      5. College of General Studies*
              3. College of Venturing*                                    6. University Midway*
                                                                                                                  *New for 2012


Registering for the University of Scouting
Pre-registration is a must for all participants due to the anticipated attendance. Pre-registration is available online only through
CampMaster, via http://www.c10univ.org, and will run from November 1, 2011 until December 12, 2011. The pre-registration
discounted fee is $25.00 which includes all course materials, lunch, commemorative patch, and a pre-printed personalized schedule.
Pre-registration will close December 12, 2011.

Walk-in registration, the day of the event, is $40.00. Walk-ins will receive course assignments based on availability of space and
instructors. Lunch and the commemorative patch will be available based on the number on hand. Due to time constraints, walk-in
registrants may be unable to complete registration in time to attend a course scheduled for the first period. In other words, we
strongly encourage you to pre-register to have the best opportunity to get into the classes you wish. Walk-in registration will take
place in the Fincher Building located in the Cox School of Business. Please refer to the Location, Facilities and Parking section on
page 4.

Class sizes are limited so please pre-register early to ensure your spot in the courses you wish to take. Although we will do our best
to accommodate all registrations, due to instructor availability, class limitations and circumstances beyond our control we may find
it necessary to reschedule or cancel a class.

Registration Fee
The pre-registration fee is $25.00 and the walk-in registration fee is $40.00 regardless of the number of classes taken. Instructors are
entitled to a discounted fee. This per person fee includes attendance to six courses, lunch, commemorative patch, certificate of
attendance, course handouts and covers liability insurance recovery and administrative costs. Please pre-register and save $15.00.

Basic Schedule
The University of scouting will run from 7:00 am until 4:30pm. Walk-in registration will begin at 7:00am and schedule updates will be
posted. Each participant will receive a printed personalized schedule of classes the day of the event. Classes are 60 minutes in
duration with 10 minutes between classes. Lunch is 30 minutes.

With over 180 classes to schedule we will be using most of the available classrooms in all six buildings. Each classroom is easily
accessible to another within the 10 minutes allotted between classes but do be prepared to travel between buildings as your day
progresses. Directions and schedules will be posted throughout the immediate outdoor campus area as well as within buildings.
Please send email to facilities@c10univ.org if you have any medical or accessibility requirements. We have done our best to
minimize travel times but do understand part of the “fellowship” of the University of Scouting is meeting others during classroom
changes!

Emergency Procedures
In the case of a life threatening or severe emergency please dial 911. Although we never anticipate any issues please be prepared. A
first aid kit for minor scrapes, cuts, etc. is available in the Ernst and Young Gallery (“Check-In and Registration Hall”) located on the
second floor of the Fincher Building in the Cox School of Business.

Check-in, Materials Pickup and Walk-in Registration Location
All participants and staff will need to check in at the Ernst and Young Gallery “Check-In and Registration Hall” on the second floor,
room 220, of the Fincher Building. Participants will pick up a materials packet if pre-registered and to register if a walk-in. You may
not attend a class without registering. The Registration Hall will have staff on hand throughout the day to assist you with any
questions. Einstein Bagels has a small shop one floor below the Registration Hall where you may purchase coffee, bagels and other
items for a quick morning snack.

Included in your materials packet will be a pre-printed class schedule (for those who pre-registered), evaluation forms, maps, and
handouts. Please keep all of your materials with you throughout the day.


Lunch
Boxed lunches will be prepared again this year by Jason’s Deli and are included in your fee. Upon check-in you will receive a packet
which contains your lunch ticket and pick-up directions and location(s). Please turn in your lunch ticket at one of the pick-up
locations to receive your boxed lunch. Walk-in registrants will receive a lunch ticket depending on availability. Although Jason’s Deli
typically provides a variety of sandwiches please consider bringing your own lunch should you have any special dietary needs.
Unfortunately, partial refunds are not available should you bring your meal.

Course Evaluations
Please turn in all course and University of Scouting evaluations at the Registration Hall where you checked in. The 2012 University of
Scouting commemorative patch and your “Certificate of Completion” will be handed out to those who turn in their course
evaluations. We strive for excellence and your constructive feedback will ensure we do better next year!

University Midway
Circle Ten Council recognizes there are a number of companies in North Texas who work hand-in-hand with the Boy Scouts of
America. We have invited a number of these companies to attend and will provide an opportunity for you to visit with them, learn
about their mission and, in the case of retailers, have an opportunity to purchase their products. Community-based and service
organizations will be on hand so you may learn how you or your scouts may partner with them to serve the needs of the
communities in North Texas.

Visit these various profit, not-for-profit, service, and community-based organizations in two locations: The Mary Alice and Mark
                                        nd
Sheppard Jr. Atrium located on the 2 floor of the Caruth Building in the Bobby Lyle School of Engineering and also in the The
                         st
Atrium location on the 1 floor of the Cox School of Business located near Einstein’s Bagels.

Be sure to visit both locations including the BSA Scout Store which will have several products available for purchase and the latest
and greatest in BSA official gear, uniforms, gifts and other merchandise. It would be great if we could buy them completely out of all
their merchandise!

What to Wear
Adult scout leaders should wear the field (Class “A”) uniform of their respective program. Adults who are not uniformed leaders
should wear business casual attire. January is a dynamic weather month in Texas. Please be prepared for inclement weather.

Participant Responsibilities
Thank you for your dedication to effective Scouting. Your participation in this training event illustrates that you care about the
quality of the Scouting program that you are able to deliver for the youth whom you serve. The ability of Scouting to make a
difference for our youth depends on volunteers like you who participate in training programs to seek broader knowledge and
continual improvement. This event provides the broadest variety of Scouting course offerings under one roof available for Scouters
in our area.

Please enjoy your visit with us today. Absorb all that you can, and then relay what you have learned back to your units, districts, and
councils. This is your primary responsibility as a University of Scouting participant.

But please don’t stop there. Scouting needs you to help our program be even more effective next year. There are three key ways
that YOU can help. As a University of Scouting participant, we have the following requests to ask of you.

Request One: Feedback is a gift

Your feedback for each class taken and for the university as a whole helps to guide the staff to further improve the program for next
year. Any and all feedback is greatly appreciated. Tell us what you liked and what you didn’t. The gift of your feedback enables us
to ensure that we continue to meet your needs as a Scouting leader.

Request Two: Get the word out

Did you know that it takes almost the same time for the staff to prepare this event whether we draw 100 or 1000 participants? Or
that it takes our instructors the same time to prepare whether 1 or 125 participants register for the class? Therefore, the
effectiveness of this event to have a positive impact on Scouting is directly proportional to the number of seats filled in the
classrooms. YOU are our best channel for promotion. We anticipate that your experience with us today will be positive and
rewarding. Please share that with your Scouting colleagues and encourage them to come with you next year.

Request Three: Share what you know

What’s the difference between a faculty or staff member and a class participant? NOTHING! We are all Scouting volunteers. All
staff members have “real” Scouting jobs just like you. Okay, maybe there IS one difference – the faculty or staff member stepped up
to share their Scouting experiences or other talents to help the rest of us be more successful. YOU could be a part of this team.
There are always positions open for instructors, registration, facilities, food service, midway, communications, administration, and
on and on. Want to be part of this highly motivated, highly effective team? Contact the Chancellor for more information on
potential opportunities. We’re sure we can find a good fit for you on our staff. Or maybe you have a great idea for a course you’d
love to develop and present. Whatever your talent is we can probably put it to good use here at the University. Our program and
participants will benefit, but so will your leadership and communication skills.

Planning for the 2013 University of Scouting has already started.                     Contact the University of Scouting Chancellor at
chancellor@c10univ.org to become involved in this adventure.

Code of Conduct
All participants, staff and guests are expected to conduct themselves in accordance with the principles set forth in the Scout Oath
and Law. Tobacco, alcohol and use of illegal drugs are strictly forbidden. Although SMU will not be in full session please understand
SMU faculty and students will still be in the area and that we are guests and would like to be welcomed back next year. Scouts (and
scouters) always leave their environment better than they found it and we encourage everyone to clean up after themselves and
others.
                    On my honor I will do my best to do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law;
                 to help other people at all times; to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight.

         A Scout is: TRUSTWORTHY – LOYAL – HELPFUL – FRIENDLY – COURTEOUS - KIND - OBEDIENT - CHEERFUL - THRIFTY – BRAVE – CLEAN - REVERENT

Can I Earn a Degree?
Those enrolled in the College of Commissioner Service work toward a Bachelor’s, Master’s or Doctoral Degree as this is an accredited
curriculum. For College of Commissioner Science “Pre-requisite” and “Requirements” information please download the forms DCS
Award Requirements and DCS Knot Tracking Worksheet as shown below. Please complete and bring with you to the college to
present for the degree plan you are working on.

http://www.c10univ.org/files/DCS_Knot_Tracking_Worksheet.xls

For all other Colleges, there exists neither a Boy Scouts of America National Council curriculum nor standard which supports an
“official” degree in the other Colleges. A degree awarded based solely on attendance was available in the past but this has been
discontinued. It is possible that consideration will be made to offer a Circle Ten Council “Degree” but much work will be need to put
in place to develop a curriculum in each College to define core courses, electives and requirements in each degree program and to
maintain strict attendance and completion records. If the Boy Scouts of America National Council institutes a University of Scouting
degree program we will adhere to their guidelines.

How to Use the Course Catalog
The purpose of this Course Catalog is to help students to plan their day and is organized to include a schedule and course listing for
each College. The course listing provides the course number, name, description and length of each course if longer than one hour.
The schedule matrix indicates what courses are offered at what time of day. In some instances courses are offered multiple times
per day. Use the schedule matrices to mark which classes you are interested in in each College and then select the one you are most
interested in for each class period. Finally, use the personal schedule below which you may fill in and use as a guide when you
register online.

Adult unit leaders and Commissioners should start their course review in their specific colleges, but don’t stop there – be sure to
review ALL available courses in all colleges. Please note the College of Commissioner Science follows a BSA National Curriculum and
has specific prerequisites and leader registration requirements. Again, be sure to check out the College of General Studies for a wide
variety of interesting courses that apply to all programs.

Class Identification
Each class is designated by a PROGRAM , a COURSE NUMBER and a .SESSION. For example, CUB058.1 is a Cub Scout class, course
number 058 and is the first session of that course during the day.

Please note there is a difference between a class that have multiple sessions and a class that may last multiple hours. BOY039.1 is a
single six hour class in the same classroom with the same instructor. However, CUB025.1, CUB025.2 are two different one hour
classes and could be at different locations or even the same time with different instructors.

Classes in the College of Commissioner Science follow a BSA mandated naming convention and therefore have a slightly different
format where the first letter designates a class supporting a (B)achelor, (M)aster or (D)octorate degree program or a (A)ll degree
programs.

Course Schedule Fields
Each block on the course schedule has the class identifier and a short title. If there are continuation markers as denoted by the “>”
character to the next block then that means the classroom activities continue to the next period.
