President's Cabinet Summary

The President’s Cabinet met on Tuesday, Oct. 27, and discussed the following items:

  • Scheduling Homecoming, Family Weekend, and Nobel Conference was discussed. Consensus was that on major institutional milestone occasions (inaugurations, historic institutional anniversaries, capital campaign launches, etc.) Homecoming, Nobel Conference, and Family Weekend activities will be held in an overlapping timeframe.  Otherwise, preferable timing (in order) for these three major events is as follows: Homecoming, Nobel Conference, Family Weekend.

    Fall 2010 Events:
    Homecoming Week - Sept. 19-25
    Nobel Conference - Oct. 3-6
    Family Weekend - Oct. 8-10

    Fall 2011 Events (beginning of Gustavus’s Sesquicentennial celebration):
    Homecoming Week - Sept. 25-Oct. 2
    Family Weekend - Sept. 30-Oct. 2
    Nobel Conference - Oct. 2-5
  • Vice presidents were requested to prepare progress reports by the end of the calendar year on the Board-approved 2009-10 institutional goals, as presented to the campus community at the President’s Colloquium on Sept. 2.
  • The agreed-upon enrollment goal for Fall 2010 is 700 incoming students (first-year and transfer). Discussion of this 40-student increase over 2009’s goal included continuing to engage the support of faculty, staff, and alumni to assist in reaching this goal.
  • The spread of influenza-like illness (ILI) appears to be slowing on campus. Unless circumstances dictate otherwise, the Pandemic Advisory Committee will not meet this week.
  • Discussion was held concerning a request for the College to consider offering childcare facilities and services on campus.  Given the availability of local childcare, limited space on campus, and other factors, it was decided that the College would not pursue this option at this time. However, President Ohle will continue to discuss this issue with the St. Peter Public Schools and City of St. Peter leaders.
  • Preliminary discussions were held regarding the Music Showcase, a biennial Twin Cities concert of Gustavus’s main performing ensembles. Given considerations, including venue availability and timing, the Cabinet agreed to continue the discussion at an upcoming meeting.
  • A Dining Service replacement position was approved.

His talk will consider the proliferation of images of windmills in Dutch art of the 17th century, allowing comparisons to be drawn with contemporary wind turbine artworks that are becoming more prevalent today as wind power is embraced as an important part of the solution to the global energy and climate crises. Wheelock's appearance is supported by the Lecture Series of the College and is presented in conjunction with the Hillstrom Museum of Art's current exhibition, "Winds of Inspiration, Winds of Change" (on view through Nov. 8), which explores wind turbines.

Pompeii: Fact vs. Film... Martin Winkler, Ph.D., University Professor of Classics at George Mason University and an internationally recognized expert in classics and film studies, will visit Gustavus to present a lecture titled "The Last Days of Pompeii: From Fact to Fiction to Film." His lecture is scheduled for Sunday, Nov. 1, beginning at 7 p.m. in Alumni Hall.

Medical Whistle-Blower Is Wallenberg Lecturer... The Fall 2009 Raoul Wallenberg Memorial Lecture will be held on Monday, Nov. 2, at 7 p.m. in Knut Wallenberg Auditorium, Nobel Hall of Science. Steven H. Miles, M.D., of the University of Minnesota Medical School, will speak on "Oath Betrayed: America's Torture Doctors." Dr. Miles became an international figure when he spoke up about the complicity of medical professionals in the torture of prisoners at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq. What surprised him most was that the doctors and nurses did not speak up about the abuse, but rather were co-opted into the process and became active participants. Miles will speak about his extensive investigation into America's use of torture and the violations of the medical profession's oath to do no harm. Miles is a professor of medicine and bioethics and also an affiliate faculty for the Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies at the university. His lecture is sponsored by Peace Studies and is free and open to the public.

In 2008, Johnson, an opthalmologist, led a medical team of nine to Ilula Lutheran Hospital in Tanzania, where more than 700 patients were screened and 62 cataract surgeries performed. Following the public lecture, a reception will be held in Linner Lounge. Johnson will also be the Chapel homilist on Tuesday, Nov. 3. The following day he will visit with classes and meet with students interested in the health professions.

'Sacred Steps' Exhibition in Chapel... "Sacred Steps on the Camino," an exhibition of 39 photographs, paintings, and sketches by eight North American artists that collectively reflect on the experience of pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela, Spain, opens on Wednesday, Nov. 4, at 7:30 p.m. in Christ Chapel with readings, reflection, music, and viewing. Free and open to the public, the Sacred Steps exhibition can be viewed from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily in Christ Chapel between its opening on Nov. 4 and Wednesday, Nov. 18. The Camino de Santiago de Compostela, known in English as the Way of St. James, is a vast network of pilgrimage routes that, in many cases, created the highways of medieval Europe. They all have as their final destination the cathedral city of Santiago de Compostela in Galicia (northwest Spain), purported home to the remains of St. James the Apostle. The cathedral has been one of Christianity’s premier pilgrimage sites for centuries. A series of events, including the opening devotional service, daily Chapel homilies, and a labyrinth walk, have been scheduled to complement the presence of Sacred Steps at the College and to provide the Gustavus and surrounding communities with opportunities to explore the many paths of personal and spiritual pilgrimage. A complete schedule of events can be found at Sacred Steps is an initiative created by medievalist professor George Greenia at the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia. The exhibition’s display on the Gustavus campus is made possible by support from the Program for Cultural Cooperation Between Spain’s Ministry for Culture and U. S. Universities; the Xunta de Galicia and its Xacobeo Foundation for pilgrimage studies; and by the Chaplains’ Office and the Department of Modern Languages, Literatures, and Cultures at Gustavus. The traveling exhibition, administered by the Spanish Embassy in Washington, D.C., opened two years ago at William and Mary.
