Faculty/Staff Activities

Paula Swiggum (nursing) presented a poster with collaboration colleagues on her research, "Student Nurse Thinking during Medication Administration," at the Midwest Health Educators Conference in Grand Forks, N.D., May 23-24. The poster won first prize in the Research category.

Carolyn O'Grady (CICE) has been selected as a 2010-11 AIEA Presidential Fellow by the peer-review panel assigned by the Association of International Education Administrators. The fellows program is a program of mentorship for senior international officers, with preference given to those who have been in their position for less than three years. The number of annual fellowships offered is limited, with one person per year selected from each of three categories: applicants from public teaching-oriented institutions, applicants from Ph.D.-granting public and private research universities, and applicants from private, four-year liberal arts colleges. Each fellow is matched with a mentor at another institution, spends several days at the mentor's campus, and designs an individualized plan of action for professional development during the fellowship period.

Briana Hewitt ' 09 and her faculty supervisor, Stephanie Otto (HES), recently submitted and were invited to present their research at the 57th annual American College of Sports Medicine conference in Baltimore, Md. The project was titled "Nutritional Practices of Coaches in the Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference."

A solo dance work created by Melissa Rolnick (theatre & dance) was presented at the World Dance Alliance Global Dance Event held July 12-17 in New York City. The event was hosted by the World Dance Alliance-Americas in affiliation with the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the NYU Steinhardt School's Dance Education Program. Performances and master classes took place at one of the most prestigious venues for dance art in the United States: Dance Theater Workshop. Rolnick's solo, titled Mine Heart Weeps to Belong, choreographed in 2008, was performed by Jennifer Walker of Contemporary Dance Wyoming in a concert/showing at Dance Theater Workshop on July 15.

Jane Coleman (nursing, emerita) presented her research on "Spring Forest Qigong: Hope for Chronic Pain" at the 30th annual Conference of the American Holistic Nurses Association held this year in Colorado Springs, CO. on June 3-6. She also co-presented at Grand Rounds at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester for the Integrative Medicine Group on June 7, for which her topic was "Spring Forest Qigong: Making a Difference."

News & Announcements

Once More unto the Breach... Welcome to a new academic term, the 149th at Gustavus Adolphus College. With the beginning of a new school year comes Inside Gustavus, the campus's weekly, online, internal newsletter. Inside Gustavus will be posted online each Thursday except during academic breaks. Here's some technical stuff that you'll want to keep in mind regarding submissions and publication:

  • How should items be submitted? Fill out an online news submission form (, click the Inside Gustavus box, and finally click the submit box.
  • What is the deadline? All submissions must be received no later than 4:30 p.m. on the Tuesday prior to publication. (Due to the Nobel Conference on Oct. 5-6, the deadline for that week's edition will be 4:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 4.)
  • Who may submit items? Anyone who has pertinent news or information for the campus community. Keep in mind that the newsletter is not a vehicle for personal thank-yous or a market for local businesses, and the editor retains the right to edit material and refuse material deemed inappropriate.
  • How many times may an item run? Generally, twice, so plan your event and promotion accordingly. Sometimes, we can run an advance notice (perhaps 6-8 weeks out) and then run two closer to the date of the event. Notices of academic processes and deadlines (e.g., the appeal for support letters for tenure candidates) are exempt from the “two times” rule and can appear additional times upon request.
  • When is the newsletter distributed? Each week of the academic year except during the week of Thanksgiving, the weeks of Christmas break, Touring Week, and the week of spring break.

A New Academic Year... Gustavus begins its 149th academic year with approximately 2,375 full-time students and 35 part-time. Around 645 new students (first-year, degree-seeking international, and transfer) are enrolled at the College this fall.

Parking Enforcement... All parking rules and regulations go into effect Tuesday, Sept. 7. Vehicles without a valid parking permit will be ticketed beginning at 7 a.m. on Sept. 7. Parking rules and regulations may have changed, so be sure to read the parking and traffic regulations. A complete list of rules may be found at policies/traffic.php. New parking stickers, which expire 8/31/2013, are available in the Campus Safety office and must be displayed on any employee vehicle prior to September 7. Contact Lisa Octigan at (x8809) with any questions.

In order to park on the street on Capitol Drive, a parking permit must be obtained and displayed; permits will be issued only to residents who live on the street. Beginning Friday, October 1, cars will be ticketed if they are parked on Capitol Drive without proper parking stickers/permits.

How to Submit a Calendar Item... As we begin a new academic term, the Marketing and Communication staff reminds the community of the process for submitting events for the online College Calendar. Departments, student groups, and individuals may submit events to the online College Calendar to keep the campus updated on events and activities offered throughout the year.
