Winter Warmer...

Soup and sandwich lunch costs $12 ($10 for members). Advance registration was required by Feb. 25, but you still might sneak in if you call right away.

They regularly perform for festivals and music educators' conventions, including the International Association for Jazz Education, the University of Northern Colorado Jazz Festival, and the New York State Band Director's Association Conference last year.
     Wednesday's concert will open with the Gustavus Jazz Lab Band, under the direction of Steve Wright. The Lab Band has just returned from a performance at the Minnesota Music Educators' Convention. The Jazz Knights then take the stage with a program that includes works by Thad Jones, Jon Fedchock, Slide Hampton, and Rodgers & Hammerstein, as well as compositions and arrangements by current members of the band. Tickets are not required, and there is no charge to attend this concert. Doors open at 7 p.m.

Feel free to arrive any time after 4:15 p.m. The abstract for this and future talks may be viewed at gustavus.edu/events/shoptalks/.

Visiting Lecturer Complements Newly Mounted Native American Art Exhibition... Jaune Quick-to-See Smith, a nationally acclaimed Native American artist, activist, and curator who served as a juror for the exhibition Migrations: New Directions in Native American Art, currently on view at the Hillstrom Museum of Art, will visit the campus to present a public lecture Sunday, March 8, at 3:30 p.m. in Wallenberg Auditorium, Nobel Hall of Science. Her lecture, titled "A Survey of Contemporary American Indian Art," is sponsored by the Hillstrom Museum of Art, with support from the Shakopee Mdewakanton Dakota Community as well as the Gustavus Lecture Series, the Gender, Women, and Sexuality Studies program, the Department of Art and Art History, and the Ethel and Edgar Johnson Endowment for the Arts. It is open to the public without charge.
     Quick-to-See Smith, an enrolled Flathead Salish member of the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Nation, is considered one of the foremost contemporary Native American artists. Her works are found in the collections of the Smithsonian Institution, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, D.C. She has lectured widely, and, among many other honors, was given a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Women's Caucus for the Arts. Elaborating on her Native American worldview, her work addresses human rights and environmental issues, as well as today's tribal politics, with a keen sense of humor and insight.

'Building Bridges'... Gustavus Adolphus College will host its 14th annual "Building Bridges" Conference Saturday, March 14. The conference, whose theme is "Liberation through Education," will focus on educational inequality in the U.S. and abroad and the important influence an education has on an individual’s future. Erin Gruwell, the real-life hero portrayed in the 2007 film Freedom Writers, and Maria Reyes, one of Gruwell’s first students and an original Freedom Writer, are the keynote speakers.
     The schedule for the daylong conference is as follows:

  • 9 a.m. - Registration in the C. Charles Jackson Campus Center
  • 10 a.m. - Opening: "I Am...We Are" social justice theatrical performance; keynote addresses in Christ Chapel
  • 12:30 p.m. - Lunch (on your own)
  • 2-5 p.m. - Workshop Sessions in the C. Charles Jackson Campus Center
  • 5 p.m. - Interactive literacy action piece in the Lund Forum: 70 local first through fourth graders will be invited to take part in a number of activities themed around the popular book The Very Hungry Caterpillar to encourage literacy. Volunteers and participants will read, make crafts, build a book, and make caterpillar bookmarks. Healthy snacking and physical activities will also be promoted. Parents who would like their children to participate may contact the co-chairs of the conference via e-mail at BBCo-Chairs09@gustavus.edu.

     The conference is open to the public, but tickets are required and may be purchased in advance. Tickets are $8 per person, but are complimentary for college students, high school students, and Gustavus students, faculty, and staff with a valid I.D. For more information and to register, visit the conference website at gustavus.edu/diversity/buildingbridges or contact the Gustavus Diversity Center at 507-933-7449.
     "Building Bridges" is a student-led, student-initiated diversity conference dedicated to addressing today’s pressing social and global issues. The conference works to increase awareness and action, promoting mutual respect and understanding about diversity. In addition to planning and running the March 14 event, the "Building Bridges" Conference committee also organized a book drive on campus and in the communities of St. Peter and Mankato. The book drive ran from October through January and collected 26,000 books that were then sold online with the proceeds going to the non-profit group Invisible Children.

Extraordinary People

Pamela Kittelson (biology) and biology grads Monica Paulson Priebe '03 and Phil Graeve '03 had their article, "Ant Diversity in Two Southern Minnesota Tallgrass Prairie Restoration Sites," published in the Journal of the Iowa Academy of Science. They collected a total of 3,523 ants and found significantly higher ant species richness in prairie remnants with higher plant diversity. Their study also found 10 new ant species records in Le Sueur and Nicollet counties. This student-faculty research collaboration was funded by the Gustavus chapter of the Sigma Xi Society as well as the Rockefeller Brothers Fund for Environmental Studies. Monica is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in conservation biology at Indiana University. Phil is a fire effects manager for the National Park Service.

Mike Ferragamo (biology) has an article, "Calcium-dependent, source specific modulation of the plasma membrane calcium pump in hippocampal neurons," in press in the Journal of Neurophysiology. The work applied laser microfluorimetry to visually quantify calcium-mediated biochemical signaling pathways as a way to evaluate whether specific proteases could protect the brain during stroke events or neurodegenerative disease like Alzheimer's. Ferragamo was supported by an award from the NSF. His University of Minnesota co-authors are Dr. Stan Thayer and undergraduate student Jessica Reinhardy.

Births

  • Chris and Julie Gilbert (political science and library) are thrilled and delighted to announce the birth of their son, Sam Julian, who was born on Feb. 13 in Las Vegas and officially adopted by Chris and Julie on Feb. 16.

Funding Opps

The Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations' weekly program or funding opportunity highlight:

  • NIH Research Grants Available... The National Institutes of Health (NIH) offers Academic Research Enhancement Award (AREA) grants to support research at undergraduate and other institutions that have not been major recipients of NIH research grant funds. These grants support small research projects in the biomedical and behavioral sciences, either for feasibility studies, pilot studies, or other small-scale programs that would provide data preliminary to a traditional research project grant or as support for an ongoing program of research. The maximum project award is $150,000 in direct costs, plus facilities and administrative (indirect) costs, and is available for a period of up to three years. The deadlines are June 25, Oct. 25 and Feb. 25. For more information, see grants.nih.gov/grants/funding/area.htm, which includes a link to frequently asked questions.

For more information on grants or proposal preparation, contact Bob Weisenfeld in the Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations (x7049 or bweis@gustavus.edu).

Safety and Security Snippets

Stay Safe—Be Seen... Throughout the year, several pieces of heavy equipment (skid-steers, forklifts, loaders, etc.) are routinely used around campus. What many people may not realize is that there are a number of blind spots affecting the operator’s view. During normal operation, an operator’s view can easily be 50-75 percent obstructed, depending on the piece of equipment and load it is carrying. For your safety, keep as much distance between you and the machine as possible when walking or driving by. A minimum distance of 50 feet is recommended. If you cannot maintain a safe distance, stop and wave to get the attention of the operator. DO NOT move closer until the operator has stopped work, made eye contact with you, and motions you past. Additionally, most of the machines have backup alarms installed. If you hear a loud pulsating beep, look around and make sure heavy equipment is not nearby. For more information, please e-mail jstratma@gustavus.edu or contact a Safety Committee member at https://gustavus.edu/security/osh/.
