News & Announcements

New VPs Announced... President Jack Ohle has announced the appointment of two individuals already familiar to many in the Gustavus community to fill leadership positions in the Gustavus administration. Mark Braun, Ph.D., currently senior vice president for academic affairs and dean of the college at Augustana College in Sioux Falls, S.D., has been named provost and dean of the college, and JoNes Van Hecke, Ph.D., currently vice president for student development and dean of student life at Central College in Pella, Iowa, has been named vice president for student life and dean of students. Braun had previously served Gustavus for 17 years (1990-2007), first as a faculty member in the Department of Communication Studies and later as associate dean of the college. Van Hecke, a 1988 graduate of Gustavus, was with the Gustavus administrative staff from 1994 to 2003 as director of student activities and then assistant dean of students. Both will assume their new posts on June 15, 2011.

Sexual Misconduct Prevention Training... The insurer that covers sexual misconduct liability risks for Gustavus, Educational and Institutional Insurance Administrators, Inc. (EIIA), has seen a recent increase in preventable claims on the campuses it insures. This increase in preventable claims is rapidly escalating insurance premiums. Fortunately, EIIA has offered to stabilize deductibles and premiums for Gustavus if the College institutes sexual misconduct prevention training for all staff and faculty. Without this training, the Gustavus insurance deductible would double from $25,000 to $50,000 per claim and the College would be charged a 10 percent surcharge. Please join with other community members on March 28 or 29 at 9 a.m. or 2:30 p.m. in the Campus Center Heritage Room to learn how you can help prevent costly sexual misconduct claims on our campus.

Women's Self-Defense Classes Scheduled... Korean ho sin sul and other self-defense techniques for women will be demonstrated and taught in Alumni Hall on Tuesdays from 5:30 to 6:20 p.m. Classes will be held on March 15 and 22, April 5 and 12, and May 3 and 10. Women are invited to attend some or all of the classes; no sign-up is necessary. The classes, which are sponsored by the Dean of Students Office and the Womyn’s Awareness Center, will be led by Karen Larson (anthropology, independent studies), a 3rd degree black belt, and student assistants. Come in comfortable clothes, ready to move.

Vacation Donations Being Accepted... Employees who would like to donate vacation hours for a Gustavus employee who will be on an approved FMLA leave and will run out of paid-time benefits should complete and sign a request for transfer of vacation hours available at the Office of Human Resources (x7304).

Gold Award... Gustavus has received a Gold Award in the direct mail category of the 26th annual Educational Advertising Awards. The award is for the Admission Office's "Count Series," a sequence of 17 postcards that describe everything from the College's rankings to traditions to what we mean when saying "Make Your Life Count." The Admission and Marketing offices along with the College's branding consultants, BD&E, developed the content and design of the postcards, and the Admission Office created a matching set of e-mails and a website, which you can view here. The Higher Educational Advertising Awards are the largest educational advertising awards competition in the country, receiving over 2,500 entries from more than 1,000 colleges and universities.

Guild of St. Lucia Seeks Nominations... The Guild of St. Lucia was established in 1958 to honor women who have achieved academic success, displayed leadership qualities, and provided service to the College and others. Fifteen juniors are elected in the spring of each year to be a part of the following year’s Guild. Please send names of nominations, with a brief explanation of your nomination, to Barb Larson Taylor at btaylor@gustavus.edu by March 25 (before spring break).

Peace Studies Awards Information Night... Please encourage students to apply for the annual Peace Studies Awards. An information night for students will be held on Monday, March 21, 5:30-6:15 p.m. Students will learn about applying for the awards and hear from past award recipients Kareen Getfield, Annabel Landaverde, and Joelle Paulson. A taco bar dinner will be served. Applications may also be obtained from Mimi Gerstbauer (political science, peace studies); they are due April 15.

Free Childcare on March 18... Need a night out with your special someone or some friends, or just some time to run some errands? Alpha Phi Omega, the College's service organization, is offering childcare to the Gustavus community! The service is being offered Friday, March 18, from 5:30 to 10 p.m. in the Dive for children ages 2-12. APO volunteers will have fun activities for the kids to do all night, including movies (Despicable Me, How to Train Your Dragon, Finding Nemo, and Kung Fu Panda), crafts, games, and air hockey. Snacks (popcorn and lemonade) will be provided. Send an e-mail to Kate Mathison (kmathiso@gustavus.edu) to indicate your interest and the number of children that you plan to drop off.
