Inside Gustavus (November 19, 2009)

Volume 42, Number 12

Faculty/Staff Activities

Jill Fischer (CICE) attended an International Educators' professional conference in Istanbul, Turkey, Nov. 11-15. The conference, sponsored by CIEE: Council on International Educational Exchange, was titled "Cultivating Culture: Local Foundations, Global Perspectives." Jill participated in a pre-conference workshop, "Advising Identity in Education Abroad," made a site visit to Koç University, one of Gustavus's approved study-abroad program sites, and attended a variety of conference sessions on current education-abroad research and theory, as well as best practices in the field.

Chad Winterfeldt (music) performed a noontime organ recital at St. Barnabas Lutheran Church in Plymouth on Thursday, Nov. 12. The half-hour recital was sponsored by the St. Barnabas Center for the Arts, a ministry of the church. Part of the half-hour program featured works by Dr. Paul Manz, who died Oct. 28. Chad will return to the Twin Cities on Tuesday, Nov. 24, to perform a noontime recital at the Church of St. Louis, King of France, in downtown St. Paul. The program will feature selected movements from La Nativité du Seigneur (The Birth of Our Lord) by Olivier Messiaen; this program is especially suited to the French-style instrument housed in the historic space.

Bob Weisenfeld (corp. & foundation relations) has accepted an invitation to serve on a six-person Leadership Team to plan the 2010 national CASE (Council for the Advancement and Support of Education) Conference for Corporate & Foundation Relations Officers, to be held in San Francisco in June 2010. Other members of the Leadership Team include colleagues from Cal-Berkeley, Cornell University, Lewis & Clark College, Stanford University, and UCLA. At the 2009 CASE conference in New York last June, Bob was co-facilitator of a half-day Affinity Session discussion involving colleagues from liberal arts colleges throughout the country.

News & Announcements

No 'Inside Gustavus' Next Week... Due to the Thanksgiving holiday on Nov. 26 and 27, Inside Gustavus will not be published on Thursday, Nov. 26. The next publication date is Dec. 3.

'Attention, Market Place Shoppers'... No, not a "Blue Light Special" in Housewares . . . but sort of related. The Dining Service is trying to track down about 400 white stoneware coffee mugs that have wandered away since Sept. 1. Replacements have been ordered but won't arrive before Thanksgiving, so if you happen to have a mug or two in your office, in your apartment, in your residence hall room . . . kindly return it/them to Evelyn's Dining room so they can be used by others (and you) again. And, as long as you are dropping off the mugs, how about grabbing the GustieWare too? Some 3,000 sets are "somewhere" other than in the Market Place. That's a $12,000 investment—replacements aren't being ordered anytime soon, so let's each do what we can to put the program back in play.

Call for Ushers... Ushers are still being sought for all Christmas in Christ Chapel services (Friday, Dec. 4, at 7:30 p.m.; Saturday, Dec. 5, at 3:30 and 7:30 p.m.; and Sunday, Dec. 6, at 3:30 and 7:30 p.m.). Volunteers need to be at Christ Chapel 90 minutes before the service starts and may stay for the service or leave once the service begins. This is a great option for getting into a service if you forgot to order a ticket. If interested, contact Dana (x7550 or dlamb) or Lorie (x7520 or lsiebels) at your earliest convenience.

A Holiday Baking Assist... The Dining Service is once again offering to help Gustavus community members with their Thanksgiving baking. To order pies, breads, and rolls, pick up a form in the Market Place. Orders and payments were to be received at the Dining Service office by Wednesday, Nov. 18, but you still might be able to place an order if you sweet-talk Steve (or return some GustieWare—see above). Students may pick up ordered items between noon and 3 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 24, from tables set up outside the entrance to the Evelyn Young Dining Room; faculty, administration, and staff may pick up their orders between noon and 3 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 25.

New 'Make Your Life Count' Website and Facebook Page... Gustavus has created a new "Make Your Life Count" website that includes a variety of feature stories exemplifying the College's new brand position launched last month. The stories celebrate Gustavus students, alumni, faculty, staff, programs, events, and organizations. The website may be accessed from the Gustavus homepage by clicking on the "Make Your Life Count" brandline (in the upper right hand corner) or by visiting makeyourlifecount.blog.gustavus.edu. The Make Your Life Count stories are also posted on a new Facebook page. Consider becoming a fan or even sharing your own Gustavus story. When new feature stories are published, they will be communicated on the Gustavus News Twitter and you may also subscribe (on the Make Your Life Count website) to receive e-mail updates. To submit a Make Your Life Count story suggestion, click on the "Submit your story" link or e-mail the Gustavus Office of Marketing and Communication at marketing@gustavus.edu. Contact Stacia Vogel (stacia@gustavus.edu, x6395) with comments or questions.
