Inside Gustavus 

October 10, 2013 | Volume 46, Number 6

Faculty/Staff Activities

Kathy Lund Dean (Economics & Management) published an article titled, “Religious accommodation in the workplace: Understanding religious identity threat and workplace behaviors in legal disputes” in Employee Responsibilities and Rights Journal. Kathy and her co-authors Scott Safranski (Saint Louis University) and Scott Lee (Idaho State University) examined religious accommodation disputes (resulting from Title VII violations) that had been adjudicated by the U.S. Circuit Courts for a 12 year period. Among other findings, results indicated that American managers still significantly struggle to accommodate Muslim employees’ religious practice requirements. They also found that even though Title VII protections do not include sexual orientation, the courts’ decisions indicated de facto protection for gay employees. The article can be read online.

Mike Ferragamo (Biology, Psychology and Neuroscience) published "Studying Temporal Properties of Stimulus-Evoked Responses in the Ventral Nerve Cord of Insects" in the peer-reviewed Journal of Undergraduate Neuroscience Education. It was the second article from an NSF funded project to develop technical and analytical approaches to physiologic systems-level questions for an undergraduate laboratory setting. Ferragamo wishes to thank the 200 or so Gustavus students who provided feedback data and assessment.

Thia Cooper (Religion and LALACS) was an invited speaker at the Transhistorical and Interdisciplinary Approaches to Slavery Conference at Purdue University, Sept. 26-27. Her lecture was titled "God, Sex and Slavery".

Student Achievements

Gustavus was well represented at the Midbrains Undergraduate Neuroscience Conference on October 5 at Carleton College. Neuroscience students Andrea Blom '14, Kendyl Greimann '15, Travis Sigafoos '16, Brianna Titus '16 and Grant Walters '14 all made separate presentations of their original scientific research to an audience of faculty and students from across the Midwest.

The Gustavus forensics team placed first at the Great Minnesota Get Together on Oct. 5-6. Nine teams from Minnesota, South Dakota, and Nebraska came to Gustavus to compete in the inaugural tournament. Six Gustavus team members earned individual championships including Brittany Knutson in After Dinner Speaking, Shelby Wilds in Communication Analysis, Jalen Gray in Dramatic Interpretation, Kate Spaulding in Impromptu Speaking, Karin Nordin in Persuasive Speaking, and Kelsey Abele in Prose Interpretation.

News & Announcements

A Royal Affair Invitation...Gustavus Library Associates invites you to join friends, family, and alumni for an evening of merriment, creative auctions, wonderful food, music, and dancing on Saturday, November 16, 2013, at the Radisson Blu Mall of America in Bloomington. Please make reservations online or by calling the Office of Marketing and Communication at 507-933-7550. For more than three decades, GLA's primary mission has been to raise significant funds for acquisitions and endowment purposes in an effort to make the Folke Bernadotte Memorial Library one of the premier libraries in the Midwest. Your presence at the gala will make the difference as GLA strives to support our students and showcase the value of a Gustavus education.

Coca-Cola Educational Partnership Grants...Application materials for the $20,000 annual Gustavus Coca-Cola Educational Partnership grant funding are now available. Funding is available for projects initiated by departments, programs, campus-wide initiatives or advocacy groups that focus on enhancing sustainability and community health. Priority will be given to student-focused initiatives achieving the greatest impact on community well-being, broadly understood. While the highest priority will be accorded to campus initiatives, the committee will also consider projects involving Gustavus students in partnership with the surrounding communities. Eligible applicants include existing student groups whose staff or faculty advisors agree to provide project oversight; classes and their instructors; individual students working with faculty or staff supervision. Other categories of participants, representing a variety of campus initiatives, may be eligible; check with the committee. A grant review committee composed of Gustavus faculty, students, and administrative staff along with representatives from Coca-Cola Refreshments began accepting applications beginning May 1, 2013.  Review of applications will begin on November 1, 2013. Announcement of awardees may begin by November 15, 2013. Detailed funding materials including application information, grant categories, budget forms, and submission-reporting contact information can be found online.

Emergency Communication System Test...Between 1:15 and 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 15, Gustavus will conduct a routine test of its emergency mass communication system. You will not need to take any action in response to the test communications that you receive. If you have shared your emergency contact data with the College, you will receive automated voice and text messages via landline phones, mobile phones, and e-mail. Your off-campus emergency contacts will not be included in this exercise. If you have not already done so, please take this opportunity to enter or update your contact information in Gustavus's password-protected emergency communication database.

We will be offering these to Gustavus employees on a first-come-first-serve basis starting Friday, Oct. 11 after 4 p.m., and continuing through the weekend until it is gone. The price will be $1.00 for each 50 pound bag. The salt will be located just outside the Physical Plant gate and can be picked up anytime. An "honor system" payment, cash or personal check, will be made in the drop box mail slot inside the office vestibule. This transaction is entirely self-service and is intended for Gustavus employees only.
