Inside Gustavus (October 1, 2009)

Volume 42, Number 5

Faculty/Staff Activities

On September 28, Lisa Heldke (philosophy) presented two talks at Indiana University/Purdue University of Indiana (Indianapolis), as part of that university's 2009-10 Common Theme, "Deep Economy." Her talks were sponsored by the departments of philosophy and American studies, as well as several community food organizations.

Rob Gardner (theatre/dance, emeritus) is performing in Foxfire with the Iowa Theatre Artists Company in Amana, Iowa. The production was described by the Cedar Rapids Gazette as "a gem of a show." Rob and his co-star, Meg Merckens, were compared to Hume Cronyn and Jessica Tandy (who originated the roles of Hector and Annie Nations) and the writer went on to say, "Gardner embodies the patriarch Hector with a roughness hewn from hard labor and traditions handed down through the generations."

John Lammert (biology) was recently elected to the board of directors of Minnesota Life College, Richfield, Minn. The not-for-profit school prepares young adults with autism spectrum disorders and learning disabilities for independent living. The curriculum emphasizes development of social skills and attaining financial self-sufficiency.

Yurie Hong (classics) delivered her paper "Collaboration and Conflict: Discourses of Maternity in Hippocratic Gynecology and Embryology" on Sept. 28 at Washington University (Mo.) and at the University of Minnesota's annual colloquium series on Oct. 2.

David Fienen (provost/music) was guest artist-organist for a Festival of Jan Bender concert at St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Des Peres, Mo., on Sunday, Sept. 27. Fienen was joined by the adult choir, school choir, congregation, and an 18-piece instrumental ensemble, conducted by the resident director of music, Mark Bender. This event celebrated the centennial of Jan Bender's birth and featured entirely his music. Jan Bender (1909-1994) was composer-in-residence at Gustavus from 1979 to 1981.

In the Media

Here are some noteworthy Gustavus-related stories that recently appeared in print or broadcast media locally, regionally, or around the nation:

  • The St. Peter Herald printed a story about Gustavus's preparedness plans for H1N1 in its Thursday, Sept. 24, edition. Heather Dale (health services) was quoted in the story.
  • The St. Peter Herald printed a story about John McKay's (music, emeritus) piano recital in its Thursday, Sept. 24, edition.
  • The St. Peter Herald printed a story about the Hillstrom Museum of Art's participation in Museum Day in its Thursday, Sept. 24, edition.
  • The Mankato Free Press printed a front-page story about Gustavus alumni Travis '00 and Nathan '02 Dahlke on Sunday, Sept. 27. The Dahlke brothers started a volunteer, non-profit farm to benefit local food shelves this summer.
  • The Mankato Free Press printed a story about Reading-in-Common author Sonia Nazario's visit to campus in its Tuesday, Sept. 29, edition. Nazario was quoted in the story and Gustavus students Claudia Martinez and Jasmine Porter were mentioned.

President's Cabinet Summary

The President's Cabinet met on Friday, Sept. 25, to review progress on Gustavus's website redesign. Vice President Freed opened with a reminder that the project's goal is to extend the College's new brand messages and graphic elements to the College's institutional Web interface. Given the aesthetic focus of the project, structural enhancements are limited only to consolidation of some redundant links and the addition of several minor new features including social networking links from our homepage. Site navigation is outside the scope of the project. Gustavus Technology Services Director Bruce Aarsvold and Web Communications Coordinator Jerry Nowell made an in-depth presentation of the redesign work in progress. The Cabinet responded very favorably to the work, giving its approval to continued efforts. Aarsvold and Nowell explained that by Oct. 10, Gustavus will go live with a redesigned home page and several landing pages. Complete website redesign will be a yearlong project as the Web team works to update tens of thousands of pages overall.
