News & Announcements

'Multicultural Day'... The Admission Office is hosting "Multicultural Day" on Saturday, Nov. 1. There will be about 200 prospective students and their families visiting the campus. If you see visitors looking lost or hesitant, make them feel welcome with a smile or hello, and offer any assistance they may need as they navigate campus.

Recycle Your Batteries... At the request of the Greens, the campus is now collecting used rechargeable batteries and cell phones from the Gustavus community for recycling. The service is being offered through Rechargeable Battery Recycling Corporation (RBRC) out of Atlanta, Ga. RBRC supplies collection boxes free of charge and even pays for shipping. Batteries that can be accepted for recycling are as follows: Nickel Cadmium, Nickel Metal Hydride, Lithium Ion, Small Sealed Lead. All batteries must weigh less than 2 lbs. Cell phones are also accepted. To have your battery or cell phone recycled, go to one of the collection stations that have been set up, at the Book Mark in the Jackson Campus Center or at GTS on the first floor of Olin Hall. Place your battery or cell phone into a clear plastic bag (located at the stations), seal the bag, and deposit it into the collection box. Student Safety and Security workers will be managing the collection stations weekly. If you have further questions regarding the recycling program, please send an e-mail to jstratma@gustavus.edu or eoctigan@gustavus.edu.

Conversations about High-Risk Drinking... In response to the national call for discussion and debate about a culture of high-risk drinking on college and university campuses known as the Amethyst Initiative, conversations will be initiated soon at Gustavus and within the St. Peter community. The conversations will focus less on the ways and degree to which high-risk drinking among some students gives rise to negative results but rather will focus more intently on realistically assessing and enhancing strategies for reducing or eliminating the high-risk consumption of alcohol in our community.
     Although about a quarter of Gustavus students don't consume alcohol (ACHA Survey, 2006) and many others who do do so responsibly, an increasing number of students in recent years have engaged in alcohol use that is dangerous and is often accompanied with other negative consequences (sexual assault, physical injury, etc.). Beginning in November and extending through February, a core group of Gustavus students, faculty, and staff will host “listening sessions” on campus and within St. Peter to discuss high-risk behaviors with alcohol evident among a subset of our student population, to critically examine and evaluate various strategies currently used in response to these behaviors, and to consider whether and how strategic changes might contribute to greater success in addressing the problem. The Office of the Dean of Students encourages you to participate in these conversations according to your interests and as your schedules permit.

Vacation Donations Being Accepted... 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).

Ushers Wanted... Ushers are needed for Christmas in Christ Chapel services (for any or all of five services: Friday, Dec. 5, 7:30 p.m.; Saturday, Dec. 6, 3:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.; and Sunday, Dec. 7, 3:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.). Those who volunteer are asked to be at Christ Chapel 90 minutes before the service starts and may stay or leave after the service begins. To volunteer, contact Dana (x7550 or dlamb@gustavus.edu) at your earliest convenience.

'Dancing with the Profs'... "Dancing with the Profs 3" will be held on Saturday, Nov. 1, beginning at 7:30 p.m. in Alumni Hall. Based on the popular TV show Dancing with the Stars on ABC, “Profs” gives five teams of students and professors/staff just a few short weeks to learn a swing dance and perform it in front of a live audience. What is truly special about the show is that it is a benefit for the Saint Peter United Way. In 2007, the event raised more than $5,000 for the charity organization.
      This year's contestants are Andrea Gross (theatre & dance) and sophomore David Kreft, Brian Johnson (chaplains' office) and sophomore Kimberly Braun, Cassandra Nelson (student activities) and senior Kevin Horn, Jeff Rosoff (MCS) and senior Alicia Cameron, and Kyhl Thomson (Dining Service) and senior Marissa Schon.
     Tickets for this year’s event are $3 for students, faculty, and staff and $5 for other members of the community. Tickets are available Oct. 27-31, from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the entrance to the Evelyn Young Dining Room, as well as at the door on the night of the show. A coin drive will also be taking place at the ticket sales table, and donations will also be accepted at the door. There is also a raffle with 15 prize packages valued between $20 and $55. Raffle tickets will be sold at the same time and location as tickets to the show and cost $2 each, 3 for $5, or 7 for $10. Winners will be drawn after the show and notified by e-mail. Dancing with the Profs is sponsored by CAB, GAC TV, and Gustavus Swing Club.

Association of Congregations Presents 2008 Service Awards... The Association of Congregations Service Award recognizes alumni and former students of Gustavus who have made distinctive commitments and contributions to the service of others. On Monday, Nov. 3, Mary Ellen (Tordsen) Kitundu '65 and Dr. Dennis Lofstrom '51 will receive this award during daily chapel at 10 a.m. Please come and help in honoring these two individuals.
     Kitundu is currently the president of International Health Partners (IHP) in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. Her career centered on practicing nursing and teaching, including in the Gustavus nursing department, and sharing her love of art both in nursing and in congregations. As president of IHP, she has developed three projects in the Nyakato Lutheran Hospital in Mwanza, a pediatric hospital working with victims of HIV/AIDS in Dar es Salaam, and worked with St. John's University Nursing School, Iowa. The scope and depth of her work far exceed her love of nursing, creatively including art as a tool for the exchange of knowledge and sharing of cultures. She and her husband Peter continue to live in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. Dennis Lofstrom, M.D., is vice president and chief operations officer of IHP of the United States and Tanzania. He has worked at three hospitals in Tanzania, one of the poorest countries in the world. Most recently at Nyakato Health Center, he steers a project to create a self-sustaining health care system that will provide ongoing care of the best possible quality in this developing country. In a recent three-month period, he made 80 presentations and traveled over 12,000 miles working to raise funds for this project, and to selflessly bring the light of healing to a land that he loves. He lives in Tanzania with his wife, Paula.

Chill Out... The eighth annual Gustavus Chill Out and Wellness Fair is slated for Thursday, Nov. 6. Put on by the Center for Vocational Reflection and many other contributors, this event provides what every member of the Gustavus community needs half-way through a busy first semester: a chance to chill out. There will be as many as 100 vendors there offering everything from educating people on healthy relationships and sexual assault awareness to back massages, DDR, free food, and so much more. The fair runs all day in the Jackson Campus Center banquet rooms.

Ceramic Demonstration and Lecture... Holly Anderson Jorde, ceramic professor at UMD, will be on campus Thursday, Nov. 6, and will be demonstrating her art and speaking 1:30-4:30 p.m. in Schafer Fine Arts Building, Room 105.

Extraordinary People

Doug Huff (philosophy) has recently published two articles: "Wittgenstein and the Lure of Mysticism," in Revisiting Mysticism (Cambridge Scholars Press), and "Wittgenstein and the Paradox of Consciousness," in Suvidya: Journal of Philosophy and Religion (June 2008).

Barbara Fister (library) moderated a panel on supporting undergraduate research at the Oberlin Group Library Directors annual meeting in Clinton, N.Y., on Oct. 17.

Helena Karlsson and Roland Thorstensson (both Scandinavian studies) recently attended the annual Conference for North American University Teachers of Swedish, this year held at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, B.C. Topics ranged from theories about second-language acquisition and teaching to the Swedish presence in Canada. The most thought-provoking discussion was led by Swedish writer Johan Tell, whose recent book on sustainability, "Moderation—100 Ways To Save the World," is a interdisciplinary study of what the average person can do "to save the world."

During the chapel service on Oct. 30, three members of the Gustavus community were honored with service awards. The Augusta Carlson Schultz Award for the Outstanding Support Staff Employee of 2008 was presented to Judy Waldhauser (admission). Virgil Jones (diversity development) received the Eric Norelius Award for the Outstanding Administrative Employee of 2008. And, the 2008 Faculty Service Award was given to Florence Amamoto (English).

Mark Bjelland (geography) presented a paper, titled "Incorporating Watershed Studies into the Gustavus Environmental Studies Curriculum," at the Geological Society of America's annual meeting, held on Oct. 9, 2008, in Houston, Texas. Bjelland's paper drew upon the work of Gustavus colleagues Jeff Jeremiason, Joel Carlin, and Laura Triplett and students Laura Pierce, Linda Kanne, and Katherine Ladig. Back at home, Bjelland also led a workshop studying the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America's social statement on the environment. The workshop was part of a retreat held at Gustavus for a men's reading group from Incarnation Lutheran Church in Shoreview, Minn.

Athletics Director Al Molde will be inducted into the Western Michigan University Athletics Hall of Fame on Friday, Oct. 31, in Grand Rapids, Mich. Molde, a 1966 graduate of Gustavus, was the head football coach at Western Michigan from 1987 until 1996. During his time at WMU, he earned the fifth-best overall winning percentage (.568) in program history among coaches with at least five years in the position. Molde is tied with WMU Athletic Hall of Famer William Spaulding for most wins by a coach (62) and coached 22 of the 100 players on WMU’s All-Century team. He led the Broncos to the program’s only outright MAC title and a berth in the California Bowl in 1988. That same year he was named MAC Coach of the Year. Molde is the 13th WMU coach to be inducted into their Hall of Fame. More background may be found in a story that appeared on a Western Michigan area website:

The National Science Foundation’s Major Research Instrumentation (MRI) program seeks to improve the quality and expand the scope of research and research training in science and engineering, and to foster the integration of research and education by providing shared instrumentation for research-intensive learning environments. This program assists in the acquisition or development of major research instrumentation that is, in general, too costly for support through other NSF programs. The maintenance and technical support associated with these instruments is also supported. Awards for instrumentation range from $100,000 to $4 million. Proposals requesting less than $100,000 will be considered only from non-Ph.D. granting institutions, and from the disciplines of mathematical science or social, behavioral, and economic science at any eligible institution. Proposals requesting more than $2 million only support the acquisition of a single instrument. The next deadline for this annual competition is January 22, 2009. For more information, please see http://nsf.gov/publications/pub_summ.jsp?ods_key=nsf09502.
