Inside Gustavus (October 28, 2010)

Volume 43, Number 9

Faculty/Staff Activities

John McKay (music, emeritus) will repeat his piano recital of the music of Schumann and Chopin this Saturday, Oct. 30, at 7:30 p.m. at First Lutheran Church. The recital is free and open to the public. There will be a free-will offering to benefit Lutheran Missions.

Barbara Bjelland (chaplains' office) designed and illustrated the official commemorative poster for the inaugural Mankato Marathon (held Oct. 23). Barbara's poster concept was selected from among the submissions of several local artists. Her poster uses original artwork created with oil pastels to depict the beauty of running and the scenery and historic buildings of Mankato. The poster can be viewed and purchased online at mankatomarathon.com/store.html. More of Barbara's art and design work can be viewed at www.festaldesign.com.

Student Achievements

Athletic training majors Angela Koich and Megan Hoeft and adviser Kyle Momsen (HES) attended the "Ice Hockey Summit: Action on Concussion" at the Mayo Clinic Sports Medicine Center on Oct. 19-20. While at the summit they participated in a working group on Education and Prevention of Concussion across Sectors and drafted recommended guidelines as part of the summit findings. (The summit was written up in the Star Tribune; contact Momsen for further information.)

Gifts & Grants

Michelle Twait (library) and Jeff Jenson (library/archives) applied for and were awarded a Minnesota Historical & Cultural Grant in the area of Collections Care and Management. The grant will be matched with an existing endowment from the late Emeroy and Adeline Johnson to purchase and install archival-quality shelving in the College and Lutheran Church Archives. The new shelving will alleviate overcrowding; provide a safer and more secure environment; and facilitate increased accessibility to materials. This project has been made possible by the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund through the vote of Minnesotans on Nov. 4, 2008. It is administered by the Minnesota Historical Society. To learn more about the College and Lutheran Church Archives, please visit gustavus.edu/go/archives/.

Funding Opps

The Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations' weekly program or funding opportunity highlight:

From the President's Desk

Please join me and other members of the College community for the employee awards ceremony on Founders Day, Friday, Oct. 29, at 10 a.m. in Christ Chapel. We will recognize the contributions of three exemplary employees as well as the outstanding work of the many Gustavus employees across the campus. You also are invited to a reception in Alumni Hall in honor of the recipients following the award ceremony.

I am pleased to announce this year's honorees: The Augusta Carlson Schultz Award for the Outstanding Support Staff Employee of 2010 will be awarded to Todd Stolt, Campus Safety officer. The Eric Norelius Award for the Outstanding Administrative Employee for 2010 will be given to Bob Weisenfeld, assistant vice president for corporate and foundation relations. And, the Faculty Service Award for 2010 will be given to Eric Eliason, professor of English.

I want to say a special thank-you to the members of the Schultz Award, Norelius Award, and Faculty Service Award selection committees and to the many people who wrote such thoughtful and inspiring letters of nomination on behalf of their co-workers. The wonderful people who work at Gustavus are clearly the College’s greatest resource.

President's Cabinet Summary

The President’s Cabinet met on October 26, joined by Faculty Senate Chair Steve Mellema (physics) and Vice Chair Sujay Rao (history). The following topics were discussed:

  • Drs. Mellema and Rao reported on the recent activities of the Senate, including the following three motions regarding the implementation of top priorities identified in the Academic Strategic Plan: (1) the Compensation Committee was charged with developing a three-year faculty compensation plan; (2) the Faculty Development Committee was charged with developing a three-year professional development plan; and (3) the Academic Technology Committee was charged with developing a three-year technology infrastructure plan. They also relayed faculty members’ excitement about the progress of the new academic building and brought forward questions regarding the planning process for technology needs in the building. Provost Fienen and Vice President Westphal shared with the Cabinet that they will be meeting with the chairs of the academic departments that will be housed in the new building to discuss the needs.
  • President Ohle, VP Tom Young, and VP Gwen Freed reported on their recent trip to Sweden to further institutional advancement and international admission goals and to plan for the June 2011 visit to Sweden by the Gustavus Board of Trustees. The trip included an alumni gathering, visits with donors, and visits with contacts at the Sigtuna Boarding School, University of Uppsala, Nobel Foundation, Nobel Museum, Swedish Academy, and the Royal Court of Sweden.
  • The group discussed upcoming office moves and construction in the O.J. Johnson Student Union. The Center for Servant Leadership will be located in what is now Linner Lounge and the Center for Vocational Reflection. The current Community Service Center will be the new location for Linner Lounge. Construction will begin in late December, and project completion is expected by spring semester 2011.
  • A draft Fundraising Policy for Faculty, Staff, and Campus Organizations was distributed. Further discussion on its adoption will be held at the next Cabinet meeting.
  • The guidelines and purpose of a newly established GTS Advisory Committee were reviewed. The group will be convened for its initial meeting within the next several weeks.
  • Members reviewed a draft Americans with Disabilities Act policy that includes all faculty, staff, and students. The policy will be on the next Cabinet meeting’s agenda for review/approval.

News & Announcements

Construction Congestion... Starting today (Thursday, Oct. 28) the south lane of Campus Center Drive (the drive that leads in from Campus Drive—the "ring road"—to the circle on the west side of the Jackson Campus Center) will be blocked as wall panels for the middle section of the north side of the new academic building are off-loaded from a truck. This will necessitate closing the south lane of the road, but access beyond the entrance to the Lund Arena parking lot will be maintained during the off-loading utilizing the north lane. The contractor will provide personnel to control traffic when the unloading is occurring. This partial road closing is anticipated to occur periodically through this week and next week. Installation of the exterior stone panels began earlier this week; a few are up already on the northwest corner of the new building, and they really are striking.

Give Blood... Sign up at the table outside the Evelyn Young Dining Room to donate blood for the American Red Cross Memorial Blood Drive that will take place at Gustavus Nov. 3 & 4. This has been an award-winning blood drive due to the continuing spirit of service and responsibility exhibited by the Gustavus community. If you have questions about eligibility, call 1-866-236-3276 (press 3).

Flu Shots Still Available... Did you miss the employee flu shot clinic? Health Service still has vaccine available and continues to recommend the flu shot as the best way to prevent H1N1 and seasonal influenza this year. Employees will need to bring their insurance cards or may choose to pay $25 by cash or check. If you have health insurance through the Gustavus plan, your flu shot will be covered at 100 percent. The Health Service regrets that they are unable to vaccinate retired employees or current employees with Medicare coverage. If you have any questions, contact Health Service at 933-7630 and ask to speak with Tracey or Rebecca. They ask that you call ahead to schedule your vaccination in advance.

Bible Study Fellowship for Faculty, Staff, Administrators... You're invited to join a Christian fellowship group that will meet on Tuesday, Nov. 9, from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in Linner Lounge to discuss being a Christ follower at Gustavus. If you can't join the group in November, they'll be meeting again on Dec. 14. (Bring your lunch if you like.)

Feel free to arrive any time after 4:15 p.m. The abstract for this and future talks may be viewed at gustavus.edu/events/shoptalks/.

Piano Trio Features Music of Beethoven & Dvořák... The piano trio of Kenneth Freed, violin, Sharon Mautner-Rodgers, 'cello, and Yumiko Oshima-Ryan, piano, will take the Björling Recital Hall stage on Sunday, Oct. 31, at 1:30 p.m. for a concert that includes two major piano trios: Ludvig van Beethoven's four-movement Piano Trio in C minor, Op. 1, No. 3., and Antonin Dvořák's Piano Trio No. 4 in E minor, Op. 90, widely recognized by the title "Dumky." As individual musicians, Freed, Mautner-Rodgers and Oshima-Ryan are well-known to music lovers in the St. Peter/Mankato area: Freed, a violist with the Minnesota Orchestra, has served as music director of the Mankato Symphony Orchestra since 2006. Mautner-Rodgers, who teaches in the Gustavus Department of Music, is principal 'cellist with the Mankato Symphony, a member of the South Dakota Symphony, and a substitute with the Minnesota Orchestra.

'Exploring Religious Questions' Series Continues... Session 4 of "The Dead Sea Scrolls, Jesus and Judaism" will be held on Monday evening, Nov. 1. Alex Jassen, professor of early Judaism at the University of Minnesota who served as the academic adviser for the Dead Sea Scrolls exhibit at the Science Museum in St. Paul, will present a lecture on "The Scrolls and First-Century Judaism."

Mixed Blood Theatre Here on Nov. 2... The Mixed Blood Theatre will present Theory of Mind at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 2, in Alumni Hall. Written by veteran company member Ken LaZebnik, the play tells the sensitive yet unsentimental story of a young man with Asperger's syndrome whose outing with a young woman becomes a memorable, insightful look at the tugs, shifts, and about-faces found on the autism spectrum. The presentation is underwritten in part by Legacy Amendment Funds, which will bring Mixed Blood to the Gustavus campus for two different performances during the 2010-11 academic year. The activity is also made possible by a grant provided by the Minnesota State Arts Board, through an appropriation by the Minnesota State Legislature from the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund; it is sponsored on campus by the Diversity Center, CAB, and the Office of Student Activities. The production of Theory of Mind is free and open to the public; a post-show discussion of autism will follow the performance. For more information about this collaborative effort, contact Virgil Jones (Diversity Center) at vjones@gustavus.edu or 507-933-7449.

Fall Warmer Set for Nov. 7... The Friends of Linnaeus Arboretum is sponsoring a Fall Warmer at 12:30 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 7, 2010. A lunch (and short meeting) precedes the presentation, "Without Geography We're Nowhere." The presenter, Christian Gilbert '98, is an eighth-grade geography educator and avid mountain climber. He is also co-founder of G4theSummit, "an online learning environment geared to serve learners of all ages in order to provide a deeper understanding of world places and culture." The event will be held in Alumni Hall; admission including the luncheon is $10 for members, $12 for non-members, and $5 for students (free admission for lecture only). To register, or if you have questions, call 507-933-6181 or e-mail shirley@gustavus.edu.

Jo Ellen Fair, Ph.D., professor of journalism and mass communication at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, will give this year’s Raoul Wallenberg Memorial Lecture on Monday, Nov. 8, at 7 p.m. in Wallenberg Auditorium. Her talk is titled "Not a simple story: Mass media and mass violence, the African case," and will address American media images of conflict in Africa. The lecture is sponsored by the Peace Studies program at Gustavus.
