Inside Gustavus (January 6, 2011)
Volume 43, Number 16
Debra Pitton (education) recently had her book, Developing Pre-Service Problem Solving Skills through Case Studies, published by Rowman and Littlefield. The book provides case studies for education professors to integrate into courses as well as case-study methodology.
The Gustavus Jazz Lab Band, under the direction of Steve Wright, has been invited to participate at the prestigious Notre Dame Jazz Festival in South Bend, Ind., March 3-5. The Notre Dame Festival is the oldest collegiate jazz festival in the United States, and each year bands from across North America audition to perform. For the first time, the Gustavus Jazz Lab Band has been invited to participate in the festival; the ensemble will perform at 9:15 p.m. in Washington Hall on Friday, March 4. This honor adds to a number of accomplishments by the ensemble in recent years, including performances at jazz festivals in the Twin Cities; a concert tour in 2010 to New York City and Washington, D.C.; a live appearance on A Prairie Home Companion broadcast from Gustavus; and a number of top-three finishes at the Eau Claire Jazz Festival.

'Gustie Breakfast'... The Gustavus community is invited to engage with other friends of Gustavus and learn something about the College at the new St. Peter "Gustie Breakfasts." With the success of the Twin Cities Gustie Breakfasts over the past three years, the organizers have decided to expand the event's reach. The on-campus breakfasts will be held at 7:30 a.m. on the second Wednesday of each month in a campus banquet room. This month’s breakfast, scheduled for Wednesday, Jan. 12, features Thomas Young ’88, vice president for institutional advancement. Upcoming breakfasts will feature Thomas Crady (admission) on Feb. 9 and Kate Knutson (political science) on March 9. Reserve your spot by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org or call 507-933-6664. Cost is $8 for an individual or $15 per couple, payable at the door. Visit Gustie Breakfast for more information.
Kathy Allen's Retirement Reception... You're invited to join the Career Center staff in celebrating Kathy Allen's 29 years of service to Gustavus at a retirement reception in the Career Center on Wednesday, Jan. 12, from 2 to 4 p.m.
Bernard LaFayette Jr. to Present Martin Luther King Jr. Day Lecture... The College will celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Monday, Jan. 17, with a public lecture by civil rights activist Bernard LaFayette Jr. and a performance of African America by Minneapolis’s Mixed Blood Theatre. LaFayette will present the College’s Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Lecture at a 10 a.m. convocation in Christ Chapel, with a question-and-answer session following. The lecture is sponsored by the Gustavus Peace Studies program, the Diversity Center, and the Office of the President. LaFayette, who co-founded the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee in 1960, played a leadership role in several key Civil Rights Movement events in the early 1960s and was chair of the Consortium on Peace Research, Education, and Development at Gustavus—the forerunner of the College's Peace Studies program—in the mid-‘70s. The performance of African America by Mixed Blood Theatre will take place at 7 p.m. Monday, Jan. 17, in Alumni Hall. In this insightful look at the modern African diaspora in Minnesota, the unexpected appearance of a magical African man leads a modern interracial couple to a better understanding and appreciation of the experience of immigrants to Minnesota from Liberia, Ethiopia, and Somalia and helps them consider how to connect with and celebrate one’s heritage. The presentation of African America is free and open to the public. No ticket is required.
Register for 'Reading Scripture through Other Eyes'... Gustavus will be a partner site for Trinity Institute's 41st national theological conference on January 19, 20, and 21. The national conference, titled "Reading Scripture through Other Eyes," will focus on how we read scripture. Do we read scriptures on our own, deciding what to believe? Do we read them as part of a group of people with a similar mindset? Do we read them with a world view? Often in times of change, we find our grounding in reading scripture, but what we read and believe may be different from what others around the world read and believe. The conference will be a live Web broadcast, with keynoters Walter Brueggemann, Mary Gordon, Teresa Okure, and Gerald West. Facilitated small-group discussion will address questions in a theological context. Register now to reserve your place. (Attendees may qualify for two CEUs—information is available from Marilyn Beyer.)
- Marion Edward Gardner, father of Rob Gardner (theatre & dance, emeritus) died on Dec. 14 in St. Peter at the age of 102. A memorial service is planned for later in the spring.
To inform the campus community of the death of a current student, employee, or trustee; an emeritus professor or trustee; or an immediate family member of a current employee, contact the Office of the President (x7538 or email@example.com). Death announcements and funeral notices for students, current and emeritus faculty and employees, and trustees will be sent to the community via written notice from the president, posted on community-l, the official campus-wide e-mail list, and published in the Inside Gustavus or Summer Scoop. Notices for immediate family members of current employees will be published in the Inside Gustavus or the Summer Scoop unless they occur during a publication break, in which case they will be posted on employee-l.
Partners in Education... Grady St. Dennis (church relations) will present "Questions of Meaning and Purpose" on Sunday, Jan. 9, at Bethany Lutheran Church in Minneapolis. Partners in Education is a program coordinated by the Office of Church Relations in which participating faculty and staff members prepare topical presentations for adult forums, workshops, and seminars in congregations of the ELCA.
Retreats... The Gustavus Adolphus College Association of Congregations Retreat Center, coordinated by the Office of Church Relations, will host a staff retreat for Our Savior's Lutheran Church from Circle Pines, Minn. The Office of Church Relations will host a confirmation retreat for St. Barnabas Lutheran Church from Plymouth, Minn., under the leadership of Pastor Wayne Peterson '77 and Dennis Manson.
Music in Worship... Any Gustavus music ensemble or soloist is welcome to perform in congregations. For more information, contact Marilyn Beyer (x7001).
Library Hours for the January Interim... Monday-Thursday: 8 a.m.-10 p.m.; Friday: 8 a.m.-6 p.m.; Saturday: 10 a.m.-5 p.m.; Sunday: 11 a.m.-10 p.m.
Profiles... Your profiles are an incredibly important part of the Gustavus website. Needless to say, they give your department some personality and allow people to get to know you. Make sure your profile has a good photo and a biography. All employees can edit their own profiles, or if you prefer, the Web Team can do that for you—just send them what you want on there. Profiles have been quite successful at Gustavus. Departments that have utilized them on their website have reported students coming in who feel like they already know the people there. Some faculty have even been invited to present at events because of their profiles.
Attention, Gustavus Knitters... "My name is Katrina Siebels and I am a senior at St. Peter High School. We are required to complete a senior project as a graduation requirement. The senior project is a year-long independent study in which all 12th graders engage in academic research, create a project related to their research, and present their findings and project at the end of the school year. My project is about cancer patients and their recovery process. As a service component, I am collecting hats for oncology patients at the Pediatric Hospital at Mayo Clinic. As a former cancer patient, I can attest to the importance of a warm hat, especially during the winter months. The hat supply at St. Mary’s is always changing and a new selection of hats will certainly brighten the day of an oncology patient. There are so many patterns of hats available and any one you choose will be fine. I am hoping to collect a variety of sizes but I think the greatest need is in the 12-16 year old age group, both for boys and girls. If you would like to help me by knitting or crocheting a hat, it can be sent to my mom, Lorie Siebels, in Marketing and Communication, by campus mail. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions."
"Plugs" is maintained as a forum by which members of the Gustavus community may offer goods and/or services to others in the community, or seek the same from them. It is not meant to accommodate ads or announcements from area businesses such as real estate agents or retailers, although from time to time such announcements may be published when deemed to be of particular interest to the community.
