Student Achievements

Two Gustavus Nursing Students, Joshua Heinzen and Madeline Randall, recently presented their independent nursing research projects at the Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing Annual Research Forum in Mankato. Joshua and Madeline were selected through a competitive abstract process as the only students to present a podium session. Madeline's presentation was titled “An Exploration of the Perceptions of High School Students Related to the Profession of Nursing” and Joshua's presentation was titled “Compassion Fatigue in Rural Midwestern Nurses”. Joshua co-presented with a student researcher at St. Olaf College and her faculty advisor, Nicole Beckmann '05. Lynnea Myers, Assistant Professor of Nursing, serves as the students' faculty sponsor.

News & Announcements

The Gribly is Back...The bound print version of the College’s student and staff directory was not produced last year, a victim of budget cutting, but entreaties from the Staff Personnel Committee and other staff and faculty have caused us to rethink the situation.

The 2013–14 Gribly has been produced as a PDF document and linked to the Office of Marketing and Communication’s homepage, from where it may be viewed or downloaded to be printed at your discretion. In addition, a limited number of spiral-bound print copies (around 200) will be available on a first-come, first-served basis for those who need the print record or who are without easy access to a personal computer. However, we are forced to charge $7 each for these copies, as we remain without a budget for the project and must recoup our print and production expenses.

You have three options:

  • The online directory continues to be a good resource, especially for looking up random lists of individual students and employees;
  • If you wish to use the PDF version of the Gribly, just click on the document link on the Marketing and Communication homepage to read it, or download it to give you the option of printing part or all of it; and/or
  • Send an interdepartmental funds transfer for $7 per directory, with department and budget line number filled in (or bring in $7, check or cash), to Steve Waldhauser or Lorie Siebels in Marketing and Communication to obtain the spiral-bound printed booklet version.

Submit Questions for All-Employee Meeting...An all-employee forum will be held at 11 a.m. Friday, Nov. 1 in Alumni Hall. Questions for President Ohle or any of the cabinet members can be submitted ahead of time via email to Vice President for Marketing and Communication Tim Kennedy at tkennedy@gustavus.edu.

Softener Salt Available...Because of changes to the city water treatment, Physical Plant finds itself with surplus softener salt. We will be offering these to Gustavus employees on a first-come-first-serve basis starting Friday, Oct. 25 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.

Academic Support...Laura Lindell is the English Learning Specialist for the Academic Support Center. She holds consulting hours for multilingual students who need extra help with academic English. She’s available for appointments or walk-in meetings Sundays-Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:30-8:30 p.m. in Library 203A, and on Wednesdays from 4-8 pm. in the Diversity Center. Multilingual students have different strengths in different languages, so students may consult about specific assignments or choose to work on more general aspects like practicing what to say in class. They can make appointments by calling the ASC office, (507) 933-7027, or by emailing Laura at llindell@gustavus.edu.

Perry is Peeking Out...The Corpse Flower housed in the College's greenhouse, affectionately known as "Perry", is showing signs that it will soon bloom for the third time in the last six years. You can track Perry's progress thanks to a live webcam that can be accessed online at https://gustavus.edu/biology/titanarum/. Students and staff should stay tuned for possible oppotunities to volunteer during public visiting hours once Perry opens up.

Reading in Common Suggestions...The Campus Activities Office is in the beginning stages of selecting our Reading In Common book for the next academic year! We'd love to hear about books you've read that you feel would be a great fit for the program. Here are a few things to consider as you make a recommendation:

  • Is the book a manageable summer read for students 18 years of age?
  • How does this book relate on a variety of levels to students in transition?
  • Is the book shorter than 300 pages?

Please complete the recommendation form online.

Employee Award 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. 18.

Input Requestion on College Policy...The President's Cabinet is seeking comments on the following proposed policy regarding Employee/Student Rooming: "Employees of the College are prohibited from sharing private sleeping accommodations, including but not limited to hotel rooms, dorm rooms, tents and similar accommodations, with students while traveling unless the employee and student are immediate family such as parent, guardian, brother, sister, or spouse."
Comments may be submitted to Kirk Beyer in the Department of Human Resources at kbeyer@gustavus.edu.

Condolences Policy Approved...The Human Resources Office asked the Cabinet to review a policy regarding the use of college funds for expressing condolences and to recognize individuals. After much discussion regarding current practice and appropriate use of college funds, an all-college policy was approved at the October 15 Cabinet meeting as a reaffirmation of current practice. A copy of the policy can be obtained through the Human Resources Office and will soon be posted online with other all-college policies.

Plugs

Librarian and lab still homeless in St. Peter...I'm still looking for a reasonably priced room, small apartment, or the like (perhaps even a house that is for sale that needs someone to keep an eye on things, especially over the winter months) in which I and my one year-old black lab can stay a few nights a week to cut down on commuting miles. The dog is very sweet, house-trained, non-chewer, and crated when left unsupervised. I’m nice too and an accomplished snow shoveler. If you know of anything or have some ideas, please contact me, Mary Anderson, at mander23@gustavus.edu.

"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.
