Inside Gustavus (April 22, 2010)
Volume 42, Number 29
Chris Gilbert (political science) was an invited speaker at the ELCA Church & Society unit staff retreat, held at the Lutheran Center in Chicago on April 14. He presented a talk on "Congregations as (Political) Communities" and led several discussion sessions with participants.
Julie Bartley (geology) and colleagues from the University of West Georgia published "Making chemistry relevant to science and engineering majors," a chapter in a new book titled Making Chemistry Relevant. This contribution outlines ways to integrate science learning objectives across the first-year curricula of science and engineering majors within the context of an interdisciplinary first-term seminar.
The Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations' weekly program or funding opportunity highlight:
- National Endowment for the Humanities Summer Stipends... The NEH Summer Stipends program provides individuals with an opportunity to pursue research in the humanities that contributes to scholarly knowledge or to the public's understanding of the humanities. Each stipend provides $6,000 for two consecutive months of full-time independent research and writing.

Bob will follow up in July with those interested regarding the nomination process.
For more information on grants or proposal preparation, contact Bob Weisenfeld in the Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations (x7049 or firstname.lastname@example.org).
Twitter as a Tool... President Barack Obama used it to help get elected, actress Demi Moore used it to help save a life, and now the Library of Congress wants to use it for research. What is it? Twitter. Recognized by some social media thought leaders as a pot of gold, Twitter is an almost instantaneous communication tool that’s quick and easy to use to pass along bits of information (140 characters at a time to be exact). To engage in one or more of Gustavus’s Twitter accounts, visit http://twitter.com/gustavus/. There you can sign in and choose to follow Gustavus News, Athletics, Alumni, the President, and more.
For more information on social media, or to make a suggestion, contact Stacia Vogel in Marketing and Communication (x6365 or email@example.com).
