Faculty/Staff Activities and Student Achievements

Each year in early February the Consortium for Mathematics and Its Applications (COMAP) conducts the Mathematical Contest in Modeling (MCM), "an international contest for high school students and college undergraduates. It challenges teams of students to clarify, analyze, and propose solutions to open-ended problems." This year's team from Gustavus Adolphus College with members Zachary Brown, Viet Dao, and Charlie Fossey earned a "Meritorious Winner" designation with their submission "Measuring the Evolution and Influence in Society's Information Networks using the Logistic Equation."

By earning the "Meritorious Winner" designation Zach, Viet, and Charlie placed in the top 20% of the 5025 teams that competed in the 2016 MCM. Of the 864 teams who completed the same problem as them, they were one of the top 6 U.S. teams and the only one of these from a liberal arts institution.

The team was coached by Marian Frazier and Tom LoFaro of the mathematics, computer science and statistics department. All three were students in MCS-358, Mathematical Model Building, this past January which was team taught by Professors Frazier and LoFaro.

News and Announcements   

Leadership ISLO Volunteers Needed…We seek volunteers for the working group on the assessment of our institutional student learning outcomes (ISLOs) on LEADERSHIP. The working group will ideally be comprised of at least two faculty members, two students, and two administrative/staff representatives. The College Assessment Committee has already identified the "Socially Responsible Leadership Scale" (SRLS) as the instrument for this assessment. The task of the working group will be to meet once in May 2016 to advise the Director of Institutional Research and the College Assessment Director on planning associated with such details as subject sampling and instrument administration timelines. The Working Group will then gather next year to aid in the analysis and dissemination of the data. Please send expressions of interest to Provost Mark Braun (mbraun@gustavus.edu) by April 20, 2016.

For close to two thousand years, Jews have marked the first night or two of Passover with a ritual meal called a seder, filled with prayer, song, special ritual foods, and a fabulous meal. Come join with us for a traditional Jewish seder, enjoy the ritual, the food, the company, learn some new songs, and gain an appreciation of this ancient and modern tradition.

Horwitz is Charles A. Dana Professor of Economics at St. Lawrence University in Canton, NY and an Affiliated Senior Scholar at the Mercatus Center in Arlington, VA.

He is the author of three books, Monetary Evolution, Free Banking, and Economic Order (Westview, 1992), Microfoundations and Macroeconomics: An Austrian Perspective (Routledge, 2000), and Hayek's Modern Family: Classical Liberalism and the Evolution of Social Institutions (Palgrave Macmillan, 2015).

2016 Moe Lecture..."From Rosa Parks to Sandra Bland: Does the Arc of Struggle Bend Towards Justice for Black Women?"
Feminist legal scholar and critical race theorist Kimberlé Crenshaw has been at the vanguard of intersectional theory since coining the term over 25 years ago. Her scholarship and activism have spurred a paradigm shift in the way we think about power and injustice. Intersectional theory reveals how common forms of oppression (such as racism, sexism, homophobia, classism, and others) act in interrelated ways to create deep systems of oppression at the “intersections” of identity categories.

Crenshaw’s recent work shines light on the current state of affairs for black women and girls in an era of mass incarceration, institutional violence, and #BlackLivesMatter. Her lecture will examine our important contemporary moment in its historical context as we contemplate the future trajectory of justice for black women and girls…and for us all. The Moe Lecture is free and open to the public and begins at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, April 22 in Alumni Hall. No ticket is required. For more information visit https://gustavus.edu/gwss/moe/.

Saint Peter’s FRC Team Nordic Storm competed in the Minnesota 10,000 Lakes Regional Tournament last week and came out winners, earning an invitation to the world championships held April 27-April 30 in St. Louis, Mo. The team, consisting of 12 students from Saint Peter, Mankato, and Lake Crystal, had six weeks to build a 120 pound robot to compete in this year’s challenge, FIRST STRONGHOLD. An alliance of 3 robots work together in the medieval castle-themed game to breach the competing alliance's defenses and storm their castle by shooting boulders (foam balls) into high or low goals to weaken the opposing alliance tower and then surround or scale the tower at the end of the round. As a community team, Nordic Storm relies on the generosity of their sponsors for entry fees, travel and other associated costs. The team is grateful for the support Gustavus provides, including space in the basement of Beck Hall to design, build, and test its robots. More information is available at saintpeterrobotics.org or by contacting one of the mentors, Matt Dobosenski, Chuck Niederriter, or Tom Young.
