Faculty/Staff Activities

Eric Dugdale (Classics), Julie Gilbert (Library), Yurie Hong (Classics), and Provost Mark Braun attended a workshop on "Information Fluency in Ancient Studies" sponsored by the Council of Independent Colleges on March 22-24. The team is developing programs for students to obtain a better understanding of information fluency in ancient studies and will also be working on ways to promote information fluency across campus.

Dennis Henry, Professor Emeritus of Physics, was recently promoted to the rank of Senior Member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE). Approximately 8% of IEEE's 416,000 members hold this grade, which requires extensive experience, and reflects professional maturity and documented achievements of significance.

Julie Gilbert (Library) has been named the 2012 recipient of the Minnesota Academic Innovators Award from the Minnesota Library Association. Read more about this honor online.

Lois Peterson (Art and Art History) has been awarded a $10,000 Artist Initiative Grant through the Minnesota State Arts Board. Peterson will use the grant to expand upon her understanding of minimalist expression by traveling to sites in the United States of well known minimalist art collections. Peterson will also produce 30 new drawings continuing her current work of minimalist/non representational drawings.

Virgil Jones, Assistant Dean of Students, was recently elected as the 2012-13 Chair of the Minnesota State Council of American College Testing (ACT). Jones has served as a member of the council since 2009.
