News & Announcements

Historical Nobel Conference Display in Library... Each fall, the Nobel Conference at Gustavus has hosted brilliant scientists and Nobel Prize winners. A substantial collection documenting the event has been collected and retained within the College Archives. Materials consist primarily of planning documents and correspondence, but there are T-shirts, recordings, programs, and some photographs. A display was developed to highlight some of these historical materials. Displayed items include a brief history of the conference, a listing of topics by decade, and a selection of programs. The project was made possible by the Gustavus Adolphus College Archives, and these unique materials are available for consultation and study within the archives. This display is located in the Library near the reference desk.

Tenure Support Letters Due... Monday, Sept. 28, at 4 p.m. is the deadline for submitting letters on behalf of four members of the faculty currently being considered for appointments with continuous tenure: Brenda Kelly (biology & chemistry), Michele Koomen (education), Karl Larson (HES), and San Skulrattanakulchai (MCS). Letters should be sent to Provost David Fienen and should address the criteria for tenure as stated in the Faculty Manual. All members of the Gustavus community are invited to submit letters. Candidates will have access to their letters.

Last Chance to Change Gribly Listing... College employees who wish to have their photo and/or home telephone number EXCLUDED from the 2009-10 Gribly (online or printed version, or both), but who have not yet indicated so, should complete the bright orange form titled "Directory Information," which is available from the Human Resources Office, as soon as possible. The Human Resources Office is located in the basement (west side) of Uhler Hall (x7304). (If you filed this form in a previous year, your directions on that form remain in effect unless and until you change them.)

Visit Linnaeus Arboretum's Newest Garden... The Bird and Butterfly Garden, located on the south side of the Interpretive Center, was created this past July and is currently looking spectacular. Asters, coneflowers, milkweed, and several other species have been planted to attract butterflies throughout the summer and during fall migration. No less than seven feeders are attracting birds right now, and feeder activity will increase as the weather gets colder. Take a look!
