A New Academic Year... Gustavus begins its 146th academic year with approximately 2,580 degree-seeking students. Around 670 first-year students are enrolled at the College this fall.

Nominations Sought for Presidential Search Committee... The Administrative Council seeks nominations from the Gustavus community for administrative and hourly staff representation on the search committee for a new president. The A.C. will convene on Friday, Sept. 7, to select the representatives from that slate of nominees, paying close attention to the overall make-up of the committee to ensure broad representation. With the announced  retirement of President Jim Peterson, the Gustavus Board of Trustees will conduct a national search for a new president. The board will meet initially on Sunday, Sept. 9, to formalize a process and committee membership for the search, which is anticipated to follow the pattern of previous searches. The committee will likely include a number of board members, 2 students, 3 faculty members, and 2 members of the administration (1 vice president and 1 additional administrator), and 1 member of the hourly staff. Nominees should have a broad perspective of the College and the confidence of the community, as well as the ability to represent the College's mission and breadth of constituencies, and to maintain strict confidentiality throughout the process. Send or bring administrative and/or staff colleague nominations, or self-nominations, today (Thursday, Sept. 6, by 5 p.m.) to Shanon Nowell in the Office of the Provost.

Attend a Meeting on Strategic Planning... The College is moving forward with a formal strategic planning process. Faculty and staff are invited to attend one of the following meetings in Alumni Hall:

  • Friday, Sept. 7, 10:30 a.m.-noon (faculty)
  • Monday, Sept. 10, 10:30 a.m.-noon (open)
  • Thursday, Sept. 13, 1-2:30 p.m. (faculty)

RSVP to Shanon Nowell by Thursday, Sept. 6, to indicate which meeting you will attend, so the size of discussion groups may be planned accordingly. All members of the community should read the Strategic Planning Draft sent by PDF on Sept. 4 in an employee-l message and attend a meeting if possible. This semester the community will focus on Format II, the statement of Vision, Goals, and Strategic Initiatives; tactics will be discussed next term. The focus questions will be: 1) Do the Goals and Strategic Initiatives ring true; 2) What is missing?

Gribly Announcement... Effective with the last academic year, the Gribly has been available online to all members of the Gustavus community. The electronic directory offers photos and up-to-date directory information for all current students, faculty, and staff, along with basic and advanced search capabilities. It may be accessed from any of the College website OnCampus Community pages (the page is displayed when clicking on Current Student, Faculty Member, or Staff Member on the home page). Look for Gribly in the left column.

  • The electronic version of the Gribly is password-protected and its use restricted to current faculty, administrators, and staff; currently enrolled students and graduates for approximately one year following their graduation; and emeriti faculty and staff requesting a password.
  • The electronic version is designed to honor all student and employee privacy requests much like the printed version in past years. Therefore, some photos or other information about particular students and employees may not be accessible.
  • With the advanced search features, students can search for faculty by department or building, and faculty can search for students by residence hall, hometown, and even class e-mail aliases. For example, an advanced search will allow individuals to build complete class and student organization photo rosters with a single search.
  • Questions about the electronic version, search capabilities, access problems, and the like should be addressed to Bruce Aarsvold (x7020 or aarsvold@gustavus.edu).

While the online Gribly should cover the great majority of the community's queries, some community members may not have easy access to the College's website at all times, and some others may want or need a record of current enrollment for reference in future years. To handle these and similar situations, a printed version of the Gribly will continue to be produced on demand for departments and offices whose requests are approved by their vice president, and at a cost of $10 per copy for all others. To reserve a print copy (if not already included in a vice president's request), click here to print and complete the form and send it to Steve Waldhauser (Office of Marketing and Communication or waldo@gustavus.edu).

Vacation Donations... Employees who would like to donate vacation hours for a Gustavus employee who will be on an approved FMLA leave and will run out of paid-time benefits should complete and sign a request for transfer of vacation hours available at the Office of Human Resources (x7304).

Letters Sought for Tenure Candidates... The following members of the faculty are currently being considered for appointments with continuous tenure:

  • John Clementson, Education
  • Patricia English, Communication Studies
  • Patric Giesler, Sociology & Anthropology
  • Deborah Goodwin, Religion
  • Elizabeth Jenner, Sociology & Anthropology
  • Jeffrey Jeremiason, Chemistry/Environmental Studies
  • Yumiko Oshima-Ryan, Music
  • Matthew Panciera, Classics
  • Alisa Rosenthal, Political Science
  • Esther Wang, Music
  • Janine Wotton, Psychology

Letters written on behalf of these candidates should be sent to Provost Mary Morton and should address the criteria for tenure as stated in the Faculty Manual.  Letters are due by Friday, September 28, at 4 p.m.  As a reminder, tenured faculty members in a candidate's department are expected to submit letters.

Nobel Conference 'Heating Up'... This year’s Nobel Conference, “Heating Up: The Energy Debate,” to be held on October 2 and 3, 2007, in Lund Arena, will focus on the looming problems of declining fossil fuels and the global warming that results from burning them, and present a hardheaded examination of proposed alternative forms of energy and the likelihood that they will be effective and affordable. 1997 Nobel laureate in physics, Steven Chu, director, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory opens the conference on Tuesday morning and, following a longstanding Gustavus tradition, will receive an honorary degree. On Tuesday evening, the “Minnesota Energy Forum” is scheduled to complement the conference lectures. Will Steger, noted polar explorer, conservationist, and educator will be the featured Nobel Conference banquet speaker on Wednesday evening. Click here to read about the presenters and for more information on the conference. Faculty and staff are welcome pick up their complimentary ticket at the Office of Marketing and Communication, or contact Lorie Siebels by e-mail or by telephone at x7520. Tickets for students will be available at the Ticket and Information Center of the Jackson Campus Center beginning Monday, Sept. 17.   

Cancer Support Group... Gustavus has its very own cancer survivors club. Why? To support survivors in any way it can--no one needs to be alone for this journey. Members share their experiences, talk about new treatments, encourage follow-up treatment for the reluctant, but most importantly laugh, live, and learn! The first meeting of the academic year will be Wednesday, Sept. 12, at noon in Linner Lounge. Please call (7556) or e-mail (straub@gustavus.edu) if you have any questions.

President's Corner

Welcome to the new academic year. Welcome, especially, to those who are new to the Gustavus community. I wish you all the best this year. It’s good to have an opportunity, in this space, to remember our purpose for being here, our mission. The abbreviated form of our statement of mission is "to prepare students for fulfilling lives of leadership and service to society." With that mission in mind, we will be working on some important efforts this year. Below are five of them.

  • Continue to enhance the academic program--building on academic strengths, building a stronger base of resources--for a number of purposes, such as building up the emerging leadership initiative with student affairs, building up the undergraduate research program, building up the Kendall Center, and building plans for additional new and renovated academic facilities.
  • Continue in the direction of fostering integrated interdisciplinary program areas--interdisciplinary centers organized around ideas where we want to create more energy and focus. Some of these will be current programs that need and deserve more support. Some will be new ventures like the Johnson Center for Environmental Innovation, the Kendall Center, and a center or an integrated program for faith and vocation. This is "Education at the Intersections"--the intersections of academic interests and disciplines, of organizational boundaries and relationships.
  • Develop further our positive and productive relationships with the church and its congregations. We will think more about the life of faith on campus and how that plays out in an increasingly diverse campus community. Thanks to Darrel Jodock for agreeing to lead this work and to the chaplains, CVR, and Office of Church Relations and others for their active participation.
  • Build our emphasis on engaging with the broader world and internationalizing the campus --with long term goals of more students from abroad here on campus, more Gustavus students studying abroad, more faculty here from different countries and cultures, and--I hope--new emphases in the curriculum as well. This, together with continuing commitments to creating and supporting all forms of diversity across the campus, will also support another of our strategic directions--cultural competency.
  • Build an initiative of environmental stewardship across the campus and beyond. I expect that energy conservation efforts will take an especially prominent position in our work together as a community this year. We’ll be looking seriously at how to better manage our environmental footprint and the influence that this will have on future campus development.

This fall, you will be hearing much more about these initiatives from Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs Mary Morton, along with the invitation to participate in their further development. Please accept her invitation when it comes.

With good wishes for the coming school year,

Jim

'Soft Opening' for Art Students League Exhibition... The first art exhibition of the 2007-08 season in the Hillstrom Museum of Art officially opens on Monday, Sept. 10, when doors open on "The Art Students League of New York: Highlights from the Permanent Collection," which will be exhibited concurrently with "Selections from the Hillstrom Museum of Art Collection." However, to accommodate the many visitors anticipated on campus this weekend for stadium dedication festivities, the exhibitions will be open to the public starting Saturday instead of waiting for Monday (the latter being the publicized date). The museum will thus be open its regular hours this weekend. The Art Students League exhibition reflects major trends in American art and features more than 70 paintings, drawings, and sculptures from students, instructors and patrons of what became the most prominent art school in the country. Hillstrom Museum of Art events are open to the public without charge; museum hours are 9 a.m.-4 p.m. weekdays and 1-5 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.

Learn about Trees... Wish you could identify the trees in your backyard, or the kind of wood in your grandmother's rocker? Or maybe you have a love of trees and just want to learn more about them. Cindy Johnson-Groh (biology) will be conducting the first of three Continuing Education workshops on trees on Saturday, Sept. 8, from 9 a.m. to noon. The first workshop, "Tree: Identification," will help you learn to identify the common trees in southern Minnesota. No prior experience with plant identification is necessary. You will learn some of the tricks of identifying trees in all seasons (with or without leaves) and learn how to use identification keys to identify other trees. Two related workshops, "Tree: Growth, Wood Characteristics and Uses" and "Tree: Poems, Prayers and Promises," will be held later in the fall. Non-Gustavus individuals can sign up for all three at a discount or individually ($12 per class or $30 for all three classes) at the St. Peter Community and Family Education office in the Community Center. It is free to Gustavus employees and students (but call Shirley Mellema at x6181 to reserve a place). Participants should be dressed to be outside.

Mass Violence in America is Topic of Continuing Education Presentation... Mass violence in America is an ongoing challenge to both American security and the American psyche. Whether the violence is perpetrated by foreign terrorists, as in the case of 9/11; by domestic terrorists such as Ted Kaczynski, Tim McVeigh, or John Muhammad; or in American schools or workplaces, as recently exemplified by the shooting spree of Cho Seung-hui, it is clear that the relationship between American culture and mass violence must be considered and addressed. On Tuesday, Sept. 11, at 7 p.m., Karen Larson (interdisciplinary studies) will present a Continuing Education class on "Mass Violence in America" at the Interpretive Center. Pre-registration is required through the St. Peter Community and Family Education office in the Community Center; cost is $8.00 for the public. Gustavus employees and students may attend at no cost but should call Shirley Mellema at x6181 to reserve a place.

Shop Talk... Joyce Sutphen (English) will present the first Faculty Shop Talk of the 2007-08 academic year.  Her talk, titled "About Poetry," will be presented on Friday, Sept. 14, at 4:30 p.m. in the Interpretive Center.  Feel free to arrive any time after 4:15 p.m.  The abstract for this and future talks may be viewed at http://gustavus.edu/events/shoptalks/.

Tour Linnaeus Arboretum... The Linnaeus Arboretum staff is offering three opportunities for the campus community and their families to attend a guided tour with arboretum naturalist Emily Hoefs. Tours will be offered on three days at a variety of times to maximize the opportunity for all to attend. Tours will last about an hour and will be held Wednesday, Sept. 19, at 7 p.m., Friday, Sept, 21, at noon, and Tuesday, Sept. 25 at 4:30 p.m. Come enjoy the beautiful fall weather and learn about the many ways you can utilize this special place.

Noted Theologian to Deliver Lefler Lecture... Theologian John Haught, who was a featured speaker at the 2003 Nobel Conference, returns to Gustavus to deliver this year's Lefler Lecture on Wednesday, Sept. 26. Haught, a Roman Catholic theologian and the Landegger Distinguished Professor of Theology at Georgetown University, is considered one of the nation's leading experts on the evolution versus creation debate.

Artist Series Brings Ladysmith Black Mambazo to Campus... The 2007-08 Artist Series is bringing the Grammy Award-winning South African vocal group Ladysmith Black Mambazo to Gustavus on Friday, Sept. 28, for a performance in Christ Chapel at 8 p.m. Twenty years ago, Joseph Shabalala and his Ladysmith Black Mambazo introduced an international public to South African vocal music, thanks to their collaboration with Paul Simon on his album Graceland. Since then the ensemble has performed at two Nobel Peace Prize Ceremonies, a performance for Pope John Paul II, South African presidential inaugurations, the 1996 Summer Olympics, and many musical award shows from around the world. Now, with over 40 recordings, six million in sales worldwide, and concerts across the globe, Ladysmith Black Mambazo has become the musical voice of traditional culture in South Africa, perhaps for all of Africa. The September 28 performance marks the ensemble's first performance on the Gustavus campus. More information and tickets for each event are available online or by calling 507-933-7590. Tickets remaining at concert time will be available at the door.

Off-Campus Events of Interest

VINE Waffle Feed Slated for Sept. 23...  Dad's Belgian Waffle Feed will be held from 8 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. on Sunday, September 23, at Trinity Lutheran Church in St. Peter. Tickets are $7 at the door, but $6 advance tickets are available from Lynn Boehne (x7686 or lboehne@gustavus.edu) in the Office of Admission. All proceeds benefit VINE Faith in Action, an interfaith volunteer caregiver program serving St. Peter and rural Nicollet County.

Extraordinary People

Former College vice president and interim president Dennis Johnson and professor emeritus of religion Robert Esbjornson will release their book, titled Esbj! The Heart and Mind of a Professor, on Oct. 13 during homecoming festivities at Gustavus. The two will be present for a book signing in the Book Mark on that day. Times for the book signing have yet to be determined.

Allen Learst (English) published two pieces in the past year. The first piece, a nonfiction called "The Blood of Children," was published in the Water~Stone Review at Hamline University. "The Blood of Children" was displayed at the Minnesota Arts Board in their Art of Recovery Exhibition, which focuses on art by people who are victims of a crime. Learst also gave a reading for this event on April 27, and in May he gave a sensitivity talk to graduating St. Paul Police Cadets about how to treat victims of crime. The Art of Recovery Exhibition can be found at http://www.arts.state.mn.us. The exhibition is also being displayed in Northwest Technical College, 905 Grant Avenue SE, Bemidji, from Aug. 27 to Sept. 28. His second piece, titled "Where Water Breaks from the Shore," was published in Passages North at Northern Michigan University.

On July 26, Darrell Jodock (religion) spoke at a symposium at Adath Jeshurun Congregation (a conservative Jewish Synagogue) in Minnetonka.  The topic of the symposium was "End of Days: Jewish and Christian Perspectives." The other speakers were Rabbi Barry Cytron and JoAnn Magnuson. Rabbi Cytron sketched the diversity of Jewish views; Jodock represented a more "mainline" Christian vision of the future (involving hope based on promises, not a blueprint or a timetable), while Magnuson represented a more "evangelical" view, which expects certain predictions about Israel to come true.

Approximately 70 ELCA theologians gathered at Lenoir-Rhyne College in Hickory, N.C., on Aug. 12-14 for this year's Convocation of Teaching Theologians. The topic was theological issues related to bio-ethics. From Gustavus, Mary Gaebler, Mary Solberg, and Darrell Jodock attended.  Solberg gave one of the seven plenary presentations, and Jodock preached the sermon for the Monday evening service and served on the committee that planned the program. In the previous week (Aug. 6-11), Jodock had attended the Churchwide Assembly of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America as a "faculty resource person." He had been chosen to fill this position by the Association of Teaching Theologians of the ELCA. This is the first year a ELCA college faculty member has served in that capacity.

The Lilly initiative at Concordia-Moorhead invited Florence Amamoto (English) and Julie Johnson (academic advising) to present "Gustavus as a Mentoring Community" to a faculty workshop on "Advising for Vocation" Aug. 15.

Jane Coleman (nursing emerita) co-presented a pre-conference workshop at the annual American Holistic Nurses Association gathering held in Tahoe City, Calif., June 7-10, 2007.  "Dying Consciously" was a workshop developed from the book Living Consciously, Dying Gracefully by authors Nancy Manahan and Becky Bohan, with a forward by Mill Manahan, MD (Coleman's co-presenters at the workshop). The book is based on the 5.5 year cancer challenge encountered by fellow nurse educator and friend Diane Manahan, and is both an inspirational and educational story. There will be a workshop, book reading, and signing in St. Peter this fall.

Student News

Nathan Erickson '08 presented a talk, "Computational and spectroscopic investigation of 7-azaindole: Solvation and intermolecular interactions," at the 9th Midwest Undergraduate Computational Chemistry Symposium hosted this year by the University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana on July 31. This talk was based on Nathan's computational chemistry research with Jonathan Smith (chemistry).
