Inside Gustavus (September 9, 2010)

Volume 43, Number 2

Faculty/Staff Activities

María Isabel Kalbermatten (Spanish) had the article "Humor in Verbal Irony" published by John Benjamins Publications this July as part of the book Dialogue in Spanish, edited by Dale Koike and Lidia Rodriguez Alfano (www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=DS%207). She also has another article, discussing the differences and similarities among verbal irony, sarcasm, and parody, that was published in Revista Latinoamericana de Lingüística #4 (2009), the journal of the Universitas Castellae, Spain (www.reviblin.com/).

On June 14-15 Darrell Jodock (religion) gave six lectures on "The Third Path—Exploring the Character of Lutheran Higher Education" during the first two days of a ten-day workshop for this year's cohort of 15 Thrivent Fellows. The workshop was held at the Heartwood Conference Center, Trego, Wis. The purpose of the Thrivent Fellows Program is leadership development for ELCA and LCMS colleges. Participants include program directors, deans, and vice presidents. In addition to participating in the workshop, each Fellow pursues an individual project during the academic year, and then the group meets again. On July 29, Jodock gave the opening address on "The Vocation of a Lutheran College and Religious Diversity" at the ELCA Vocation of a Lutheran College Conference, which met this year at Augsburg. The second plenary, on civil discourse, was led by Terry Morrow (communication studies). In cooperation with Chris Johnson (servant leadership) and with the help of other faculty, staff, and alumni, Jodock helped to organize and lead a four-day workshop in June and another day in August for 18 Gustavus faculty and staff. Each faculty participant developed a new course or revised an existing one to include a significant component on vocation. On August 7-9 Jodock and Mary Solberg (religion) represented Gustavus at the Convocation of Teaching Theologians, held this year at California Lutheran University. This gathering of ELCA and Canadian Lutheran theologians from colleges, universities, and seminaries explored the topic "What Does it Mean to Be the Church? The ELCA and ELCIC in the 21st Century."

Student Achievements

Junior biology major Ethan Degner has been awarded a $50,000 Environmental Protection Agency Greater Research Opportunities (EPA GRO) Fellowship for Undergraduate Environmental Study. Degner was one of 30 fellowship recipients selected from throughout the nation.

News & Announcements

Letters Sought for Tenure Candidates... The following members of the faculty are currently being considered for appointments with continuous tenure:

  • Thia Cooper (religion)
  • Kate Knutson (political science)
  • Baker Lawley (English)

Letters written on behalf of these candidates should be sent to Provost David Fienen and should address the criteria for tenure as stated in the Faculty Manual (see below). Letters are due by Monday, Sept. 27, 2010, at 4:30 p.m. All members of the Gustavus community are invited to submit letters. Candidates will have access to their letters. The specific criteria for tenure are as follows:

  1. Excellence as a teacher as reflected in quality of and enthusiasm for work, effectiveness of methods, interest in subject matter, concern for student learning, effective advising of students within and outside the major, and continued academic preparation and improvement.
  2. An emerging pattern of professional activities as reflected, for example, by publications, presentations at scholarly meetings or conferences, and, in the arts, by manifestations of creativity demonstrated through exhibits or performances; another example may be involvement in professional and/or public organizations, boards, and commissions related to one's academic fields or college assignments.
  3. An emerging pattern of involvement in the activities of the College.
  4. Continuing evidence of sympathy with the aims and purposes of Gustavus Adolphus College as stated in the Mission Statement of the College.

Gribly Announcement... Since the 2006-07 academic year, the Gribly has been available online to all members of the Gustavus community. The electronic directory offers photos and up-to-date directory information for all current students, faculty, and staff, along with basic and advanced search capabilities. It may be accessed from any of the College website's OnCampus Community pages (the page is displayed when clicking on Current Student, Faculty Member, or Staff Member on the home page). Look for "Gribly" in the left column.

  • The electronic version of the Gribly is password-protected and its use restricted to current faculty, administrators, and staff; currently enrolled students and graduates for approximately one year following their graduation; and emeriti faculty and retired staff requesting a password.
  • The electronic version is designed to honor all student and employee privacy requests much like the printed version in past years. Therefore, some photos or other information about particular students and employees may not be accessible. (If you are new to the faculty or staff and wish to suppress your photo or home phone number, or if you wish to change your preference, fill out the "Directory Information" form available from the Human Resources Office.)
  • With the advanced search features, students can search for faculty by department or building, and faculty can search for students by residence hall, hometown, and even class e-mail aliases. For example, an advanced search will allow individuals to build complete class and student organization photo rosters with a single search.
  • Questions about the electronic version, search capabilities, access problems, and the like should be addressed to Bruce Aarsvold (x7020 or aarsvold@gustavus.edu).

While the online Gribly should cover the great majority of the community's queries, some community members may not have easy access to the College's website at all times, and some others may want or need a record of current enrollment for reference in future years. To handle these and similar situations, a printed version of the Gribly will continue to be produced on demand for departments and offices whose requests have been approved by their vice president, and at a cost of $10 per copy for all others. Assembly begins once official enrollment figures are released following the tenth class day. Copies should be available in mid-October. To reserve a print copy (if not already included in your vice president's request), click here to print and complete the form and send it to Steve Waldhauser (Office of Marketing and Communication or waldo@gustavus.edu). NOTE: As mentioned above, if you wish to have your photo and/or home telephone number excluded from either version of the Gribly but have not already indicated your wishes, you must complete the bright orange form titled “Directory Information,” which is available from the Human Resources Office, as soon as possible.

Bicycle Registration... All students, faculty, and staff who wish to park a bicycle on campus must register it with the College. Registration of bicycles is accomplished in person at the Campus Safety Office located in the basement of Norelius Hall Room A35, or you can also register online. There is no fee for registering a bicycle. Bicycles parked on campus must be locked with a chain and padlock or other locking device to a bike rack. Bicycles secured improperly or left unsecured will be confiscated by Campus Safety or Physical Plant personnel. A storage fee of $10 (non-registered; $5 for registered) per day will be applied.

Emergency Communication Notice... As part of its ongoing and proactive emergency preparedness planning, Gustavus has a multi-layered emergency communication system that enables campus administrators and security professionals to reach out to all members of the Gustavus community within minutes—through phone calls, e-mails, and text messages—with information and updates during unforeseen events or emergencies. To make it most effective, ALL students, faculty, and staff must enter and regularly update their emergency contact information online. To do so, go to the online campus directory at gustavus.edu/gribly. After logging in, click the “Your Profile” tab and proceed to the “Emergency” tab to fill out or change your contact information. All contact information will remain secure and confidential. The system will only be used for emergencies or other unforeseen urgent communications. If you are already in the system, please follow the same steps to make any necessary changes. The system will be tested during the school year; such tests will be announced in advance. Questions may be directed to Director of Campus Safety Ray Thrower (x8888 or rthrower@gustvaus.edu) or Vice President for Marketing and Communication Gwen Freed (x6355 or gfreed@gustavus.edu).

Seeking Dancers... The Campus Activities Board invites participants or nominations for the Fifth Annual Dancing with the Profs! Dancing pairs will have the opportunity to select a local charity or non-profit they wish to raise money for. This will give the pairs the chance to invest themselves in the fundraising process and support a cause they have a strong interest in supporting. The commitment to participate in Dancing with the Profs is 2-5 hours a week beginning early October through the event, which is Saturday, Nov. 6, 2010. These hours are flexible and students will work around your schedule and commitments. In the past four years, Dancing with the Profs has been wildly successful on campus, drawing crowds of 500 and raising more than $10,000. If you or someone you know on campus is willing to take the risk and dance in front of your favorite colleagues, students, and community members to help a cause you are passionate about, contact Ashley Neaton, CAB Co-executive, Special Events at aneaton@gustavus.edu.
