New Emergency Notification System... The College is enhancing its emergency notification system and is seeking cooperation from the campus community to do so. All employees (faculty, administrators, and support staff) and students are asked to go online to the electronic Gribly ( to update their information and provide additional information, particularly cellular/mobile telephone numbers. In the event of a major emergency, the College will need this information to contact you through a new emergency notification system that maximizes a variety of channels, including land lines, mobile phones, text messaging, and e-mail. Our success with this advanced, multi-layered system will depend, in large part, on the accuracy of the contact information provided (and which you will update as needed in a timely manner).

Create an Online Profile... Faculty and staff are now invited to create professional profiles online via their web browser (e.g., Firefox). Log in at to get started. Add your background information and photo, list your areas of interest and expertise, and upload your complete CV. Edit and save your profile at any time and the changes will be immediately reflected online. Your profile may appear in various spots throughout the Gustavus website—department pages and elsewhere—so some degree of customization is highly recommended. Take a tour of currently available profiles at or contact Web Services ( or x6365) for more information.

Residency in Historical Keyboard Instruments...

Using his replica 17th-century Flemish harpsichord (modeled after Couchet) and replica late 18th-century fortepiano (modeled after Stein), Stephenson will perform music by Scarlatti, Handel, Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Haydn, and Schubert. Stephenson's residency at Gustavus begins on Friday morning from 9-10:30 a.m. with a lecture/demonstration exploring the dramatic shift in aesthetics, beliefs, and conceptions of sound that occurred during the 18th century as the harpsichord was popularly supplanted by the fortepiano.

This event is made possible in part by a local association grant from the Music Teachers National Association and is co-sponsored by the Mankato Area MTA, Sioux Valley MTA, the Minnesota Valley MTA, and Gustavus. For more information, contact Rebekah Richards, or 507-934-9117. The residency activities and the recital are free and open to the public.

Digital Humanities Start-Up Grants should result in plans, prototypes, or proofs of concept for long-term digital humanities projects prior to implementation. There are two levels of funding depending upon the stage of the project: Level I grant awards range from $5,000 to $25,000, while Level II grant awards range from $25,001 to $50,000. Up to 20 percent of the total grant may be used for the acquisition of computing hardware and software. The two deadlines for this program are Oct. 16, 2007 (for projects beginning in March 2008), and April 2, 2008 (for projects beginning in September 2008).
