* Katie Ciccarelli to Lead Institute for Global Enterprise

The University of Evansville and the Schroeder School of Business are pleased to announce that Katie Ciccarelli will become the executive director of the Institute for Global Enterprise, effective August 1.

Ciccarelli replaces Dan Miller, the Institute’s retiring executive director.

The Institute for Global Enterprise, a part of the Schroeder School of Business, exists to create opportunities and challenges that prepare students to contribute and succeed in a global economy. Additionally, IGE serves as a partner to regional business by providing ongoing education and external resources that enhance a company’s ability to grow, expand, and successfully compete in a worldwide marketplace and environment.

“I have immense enthusiasm for the future of the Institute for Global Enterprise under the leadership of Katie Ciccarelli,” said Steven Standifird, PhD, dean of the Schroeder School of Business. “Her background, experience, and perspectives make her uniquely qualified to guide this initiative into the future. Katie will build on the foundation laid by Dan Miller, and will expand the Institute’s mission of creating valuable global opportunities for both students and regional businesses."

For the past year, Ciccarelli has served as the director of program development for the Institute at UE. Her role has included developing executive education programs, leading study abroad opportunities, and participating in shaping the vision for the future of the Institute. Prior to relocating to Evansville, Ciccarelli was associate director of the Ahlers Center for International Business at the University of San Diego, where she was also an adjunct professor of international business. She has worked, taught, and studied in Italy, Thailand, France, Portugal, and Brazil.

Miller, a 1970 UE graduate, will continue to be involved in the Institute as its first-ever global executive in residence, a role that will allow him to contribute to the Institute’s mission on an ongoing basis.

The Institute for Global Enterprise at UE is funded by a grant from the Lilly Endowment.

* New Marketing Object Codes

The Office of Fiscal Affairs and the Office of Marketing and Communications have developed new marketing expense object codes for use by your department when charging expenses that are funded by your budget and are associated with marketing projects. The new expense object codes are to be used effective immediately.

The link to a list of the new codes is:

The new codes start with “552” and will be pooled to your 55000 services budget. You should use these new object codes as appropriate for pcard purchases, requisitions, mail, and copy services requests, etc.

With respect to existing object codes, the 55001 object code for advertising will be inactivated.

You may continue to use the existing 55065 object code for printing of routine internal forms such as parking tickets, vacation forms, travel forms, etc., but you will need to use the new 55245 code for printing costs associated with marketing projects.

Speakers associated with lecture series events open to the public should be charged to 55230 instead of the existing honorarium code of 55045.

The 55045 code will continue to be used for non-contract payments to faculty, administrators or staff and speakers for classroom purposes.

Promotional items to be given away, such as t-shirts, key chains or similar items with the UE logo should be charged to the new code 55205 for ad specialties. These types of items should no longer be charged to supply object codes.

If you have additional questions, please call the Office of Fiscal Affairs at ext. 2183.
