From the President's Desk

On behalf of the President's Cabinet, we want to first thank the entire community for making Nobel Conference 48 and the Royal Visit such a success, and to everyone who was involved in the many activities surrounding the Conference and the Visit.

Regarding the Nobel Conference, we especially want to thank Dr. Chuck Niederriter for his leadership as the Director of the Nobel Conference and to the Conference's co-chairs this year, Professors Julie Bartley and Joel Carlin.  We heard comments from the presenters, who expressed their deep appreciation for the planning that went into the Conference. We talked to individuals who attended their first conference as well as those who have attended all 48 conferences. The feeling of gratitude was universal.  We also want to thank all those who coordinated the logistics for the Conference and our faculty and students who hosted the presenters and to those who helped coordinate the visits of our distinguished guests.  We now turn our attention to Nobel Conference 49, and know everyone will now help Professor Mellema and his committee, as we have Professors Bartley and Carlin and their committee. 

Regarding the Royal Visit, words cannot express how much we appreciate all that Dining Service, grounds, security, Marketing and Communication, student leaders, our Chaplains, those faculty and students who participated in the Royal Seminars, the Festival Worship Service, and Royal Luncheon did to make the day so memorable.  Their Majesties enjoyed their day on campus and were especially thankful for the opportunity to visit the College during the celebration of our Sesquicentennial.  

As a community, we should be proud of the activities of this past week.  Now we can look forward to a fantastic Homecoming and the celebration of the end of our Sesquicentennial.  

News & Announcements

Be U--Wellbeing Coaching Groups...The following is a note from Associate Dean of Students Stephen Bennett:

I hope this note finds you well. During this celebratory time at Gustavus, as we continue to celebrate our Sesquicentennial, I want to offer a different kind of celebratory opportunity--the chance to celebrate your own personal wellbeing by participating in a Be U--Wellbeing Coaching Group. Wellbeing is about action and coaching is a powerful catalyst for this action!!  

What is Coaching?

Coaching is a relationship-based practice in which a person is dedicated to serving the long-term development of wellbeing in the other.  Coaching can be done one on one or in a group.  Coaching occurs through the practice of connection and communication that views each individual as healthy, whole, wise, and the ultimate expert in their own life's journey toward optimal wellbeing.  By identifying values, setting priorities, designing goals, developing skills, and determining needed resources, an individual being coached connects their life experience to the wellbeing of their mind, body, and spirit, and chooses a path for achieving their desired outcome.

Background to Group Wellbeing Coaching at Gustavus:

As many of you know, this past June 2012 we held a Wellbeing Campus Kick Off Event to share with our community information about our new Gustavus Wellbeing Initiative, and provided individuals an opportunity to take a Wellbeing Self-Assessment, as well as an invitation to participate in a Be U--Wellbeing Coaching Group.  

18 faculty and staff took us up on the offer to put wellbeing into action and joined one of the 4 coaching groups offered over the summer.  The summer coaching groups were facilitated by Gustavus faculty and staff who were trained in June 2012 by a experts from the Center for Spirituality and Healing at the University of Minnesota. The feedback from Gustavus faculty and staff who participated in the summer coaching circles was very positive. The average ratings from participants on their personal satisfaction in the coaching groups was 3.6 on a scale of 1 to 4 with 4 being "Extremely Satisfied."  Some of the comments from participants in the Be U Coaching Groups were:

"I felt very supported by this group and I appreciate being listened to."

"Thankful for the authenticity and honesty."

"This group helps me feel grounded.  I feel affirmation that I'm doing okay and gain energy and intention about going forward."

"Today helped me realize I am thinking in the right direction and need to move forward."

"Overall, this is a fabulous opportunity to keep employees/students engaged with each other.  It builds a sense of community that could be very useful in any work environment.  Thanks for this opportunity!"

A New Opportunity to Participate in a Coaching Group:

A new round of Be U--Wellbeing Coaching Groups is being offered to any Gustavus faculty, staff, or administrator. We have openings for a total of 12 participants and will take employees on a first come first serve basis. Groups will be co-facilitated by Gustavus staff members at set times for a total of 6 weeks beginning the week of Oct. 15 and ending the week of November 26. Groups are an hour long and will be held on campus. Participants are asked to commit to all 6 group meeting times.  

Please Note: Support staff and hourly staff are encouraged to participate in the Be U Coaching Groups and will not be required to use PTO time to attend but they must seek the approval of their direct supervisor. Please check with your supervisors about participation. If you have questions about this please contact Steve Bennett directly.

Groups will meet on the following days and times:

Mondays 2:30-3:30 p.m. beginning October 15

Tuesdays 9-10 a.m. beginning October 16

Fridays 10:30-11:30 a.m. beginning October 19

Please contact Steve Bennett (sbennett@gac.edu) or x7739 to reserve your spot in a Be U--Wellbeing Coaching Group. If you know of other colleagues that might be interested in this opportunity please feel free to pass this along.

*Note: We are planning a second round of Be U Coaching Facilitator Trainings during the 2012-2013. A prerequisite for acceptance is participation in a coaching circle.  If you think you might be interested in being trained as a Be U Group Coaching Facilitator please contact Steve Bennett. Dates are TBD.

Gustavus Seeking National Distinction...An integrated team of faculty and staff will begin initial deliberations on Tuesday, Oct. 16 to identify and formulate the process by which Gustavus will seek the 2015 Carnegie Foundation’s Elective Classification for Community Engagement. The Classification is an elective, voluntary distinction that requires considerable effort on the part of institutions to achieve. The classification evaluates the degree to which community engagement is integrated and institutionalized, and the benefits to receiving institutions rest upon the credibility and prestige associated with the excellence embodied within the classification’s criteria. Eligibility for the classification allows institutions to apply every 5 years, with the next round in 2015. Once “classified,” an institution holds the distinction for 10 years, with only abbreviated applications required thereafter. Currently, more than 300 institutions hold the classification nationwide. In 2010, 115 institutions were classified and 28 of those were baccalaureate colleges. Current Minnesota “classified” institutions include: Macalester College, Augsburg College, Metropolitan State, St. Cloud State, University of Minnesota – Twin Cities, University of St. Thomas and Winona State University. More information about the Carnegie Foundation’s Elective Classification for Community Engagement is available online.

Special thanks go out to team members who will serve for a 2-year period until the application is submitted in April 2014. They are: Dr. Paula O’loughlin, Dr. Darrin Good, Dr. Kristian Braekkan, Dr. Ana Adams, Virgil Jones, David Newell, Sara Sletten, and Jeffrey Rathlef.

St. Lucia Nominations...The people of Sweden honor St. Lucia for her service to others and standing up for what she knew was right. You are asked to nominate Sophomore women who are similarly a light to others and exemplify these qualities: Courageous Leadership, Service to Others, Strength of Character, and Compassion. Please note that these women do not have to have any Swedish connection or the ability to sing. You may nominate as many women as you wish. Please provide the name of the nominee and the reason for your nomination to stlucia2012@gustavus.edu. The Festival of St. Lucia will be celebrated on Thursday, December 6 during the morning Chapel Service.

More Nominations...Nominations for the Augusta Carlson Schultz (outstanding support staff employee) and the Eric Norelius (outstanding administrative employee) awards should be turned in to the Office of Human Resources by Oct. 19.

Looking for Health Fitness Study Participants...We are Health Fitness majors here at Gustavus and we are doing a research project on the effects of high intensity interval training (HIIT) versus traditional training. HIIT is a new fitness method that is proven to improve your cardio faster than traditional training. We are looking for staff members from the age of 30-50 years old to participate in our study. Our study is an 6-8 week program, consisting of 3-4 workouts per week. Workouts will be 20-40 minutes long on the treadmill. It will consist of a pre- and post-test that will test your maximal oxgyen uptake and your heart rate. Email Lexi Quale (aquale@gac.edu) or Chelsey Richardson (crichar2@gac.edu) if you would like to participate in the study. Please let us know by October 16.

Peace Studies Discussion...Interested faculty and students are invited to a discussion about the future of the Peace Studies curriculum and major/minor from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 15 in the President's Dining Room. Conversation will be hosted by the Peace Studies committee, and snacks will be provided. Contact Mimi Gerstbauer, Director of Peace Studies, with questions (x7421 or mgerstba@gustavus.edu).
