As an institution affiliated with The United Methodist Church, we want to continually affirm our call to initiate and promote better relationships between Christians and people of other faiths based on informed understanding, critical appreciation, and balanced perspective. Interfaith discussions can make religion a bridge and not a barrier toward a peaceful world. The University of Evansville is committed to religious diversity and interfaith dialogue as we continue to serve an interconnected, global society.

Kiggins’ research has been accepted for publication in the peer-reviewed journal International Studies Perspectives, and in peer-reviewed edited volumes published by the University of Minnesota Press, Ashgate, and Springer-Verlag. In addition, local ABC and CBS affiliates in Lafayette, Louisiana have relied on Kiggins’ expertise during news reports on international political events including the Arab Spring and the overthrow of Mummar Kaddafi.

* Topic of September Andiron Lecture - Talking to Molecules with Lasers

The next University of Evansville Andiron Lecture is set for Wednesday, September 4 at 4:00 p.m.in Eykamp 252, Ridgway University Center A social gathering with beverages begins at 3:45 p.m.

Professor of Chemistry Bryan Lynch will be the guest speaker. His topic: "Talking to Molecules with Lasers: A Sabbatical at MIT."

For some 50 years, scientists have used lasers in their efforts to understand the complex behavior of molecules. Some molecules readily reveal their secrets while others adamantly refuse to do so. This lecture will explore the lengths to which scientists go to “talk” to molecules within a laser experiment; it will also examine the types of behavior observed and their importance to chemists and to society in general.

Lynch earned both BS and PhD degrees in chemistry from the University of Pittsburgh, and completed his postdoctoral training in magnetic resonance at Cornell University. Since 1994, he has taught courses in both general and physical chemistry at the University of Evansville.

In 2001, he received the Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Chemical Research, presented by the Department of Chemistry at Indiana University. In 2009, he was awarded the University of Evansville Sydney and Sadelle Berger Award for Scholarly Activity and the Dean’s Outstanding Teaching Award. His research interest is the study of the structure and energetics of small molecules using laser spectroscopy. He has completed two sabbaticals in this field of research at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

* Kimberling's Encyclopedia of Triangle Centers Highly Recommended by American Library Association

Clark Kimberling, professor of mathematics, has a website recently ranked in the Highly Recommended category by the American Library Association. The site, called Encyclopedia of Triangle Centers (ETC) started at UE in 2000 as an extension of Dr. Kimberling's book, Triangle Centers and Central Triangles. ETC presently described more than 5000 special geometric points. The first four are the ancient Greek centers (centroid, incenter, circumcenter, orthocenter) and many of the others have been discovered by geometers around the world since 2000.

The Highly Recommended status comes at the conclusion of a Choice Card, sent by the American Library Association to thousands of academic libraries. You can read about ETC at Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Encyclopedia_of_Triangle_Centers) or download it from http://faculty.evansville.edu/ck6/encyclopedia/ETC.html. The international impact of ETC stems from worldwide interest in geometry; during the past 12 months, new entries in ETC have come from England, Japan, Poland, France, Spain, Greece, China, Venezuela, Russia, Germany, and the U.S.

* UE Men's Hoops Adds Mislav Brzoja

Always an attractive program for foreign student-athletes, the University of Evansville men’s basketball team has announced that Mislav Brzoja, a native of Zagreb, Croatia, has transferred to the school and will be eligible to play for the Purple Aces beginning in 2014.

"Mislav is an outstanding perimeter player who brings great size and skill level to our program,” Evansville head coach Marty Simmons said.  “His international play as well as the experience of playing in the Big East is something that we are excited about.  Most importantly, he is a better person than a basketball player."

Brzoja comes to Evansville after playing for Villanova last season where he saw action in 17 games as a guard for the Wildcats.  He played an average of 2.4 minutes per game while recording six rebounds.  Standing at 6-4, Brzoja has the ability to play at either the one, two or three position on the floor and can be utilized in several different ways. 

He brings experience in the state of Indiana was he played at Traders Point Christian Academy prior to his year at Villanova.  The academy is located in Whitestown, Ind., which is a suburb on the northwest side of Indianapolis.  Brzoja played a pivotal role in leading the academy to a 24-3 record and the Indiana Christian Title in 2012.

Over the past two summers, Brzoja has returned home to play for his native Croatia.  This summer, he played for the FIBA U19 team where he averaged 12.7 points per game over the course of nine outings.  That tournament is the most prestigious He registered double figures in six of those efforts, including 22 points versus Spain and 21 against Korea.  In the summer of 2012, he represented his country in the U18 European Championship.  Over the course of eight games, he averaged 15.0 points and 2.9 rebounds to lead Croatia to the gold medal. 

Already enrolled in classes at UE, Brzoja will be able to practice with the team this season before being eligible for game action in 2014.  In his recruitment out of Traders Point in 2012, Brzoja had interest from several institutions including: Northwestern, Vanderbilt, LSU and Marquette.

* Aces travel to North Carolina Central Tournament

After an offseason of preparation, the University of Evansville volleyball team will open up the regular season this weekend with a trip to the North Carolina Central Tournament.

First-year head coach Manolo Concepcion begins his tenure with seven matches on the road before returning home on Sept. 13. 

“We have a tough preseason schedule as we are away for a long time,” Concepcion said.  “We will be mentally tested as we perform in front of new fans.  Opening a new season always provides some unknowns as there is no information or scouting report out on us and the same is true for our opponents; we are just very excited to get started.”

That start will take place on Friday at 3:30 p.m. CT as UE will face Murray State.  The Racers were 6-20 a season ago, including a 3-0 UE win at the Carson Center.  They return four starters from 2012 and welcome five newcomers.

On Saturday, Evansville will play a pair of matches, beginning with a matchup against Hampton at 10 a.m. CT.  A solid 19-14 team last year, the Lady Pirates return 11 letterwinners and five starters.  The duo of Krista Kraskura and Bibiany Fonseca earned Preseason All-MEAC honors as the Lady Pirates were picked to finish atop the Northern Division of the league.

UE wraps up the weekend with a 12:30 p.m. CT contest versus host North Carolina Central, who went 8-22 in 2012.  The Eagles play in the South Division of the MEAC and also had a pair of players named to the preseason team as Kalin Russell and Christine Anthony were recognized.

Evansville returns the nucleus of its 2012 squad, including junior Ashley Ring, who ranked third in the Missouri Valley Conference in kills.  The senior class, which consists of Katie Klages, Jenn Murphy, Lauren Seyller, Rachel TenHoor and Caitlin Wickes, will be depended upon for their experience.

Klages has established herself as one of the top liberos in the MVC as she was fourth in the league in digs a season ago.  Murphy stepped right into a regular role at the setter position as a junior, finishing in the top ten in the MVC in assists.  Seyller has played a total of 198 sets in her first two years in the program, notching 147 digs and 157 kills as a junior.

TenHoor has been a force in the middle for the Aces and was the leading hitter last season while Wickes is walking on to the team after playing her freshman and sophomore years.

* Men's Soccer Opens Season at The Hotels at Grand Prairie Classic

The University of Evansville men’s soccer team will open its 2013 regular season this weekend at The Hotels at Grand Prairie Classic in Peoria, Ill. The Purple Aces open the weekend with a 4:30 p.m. match against Massachusetts Friday, before taking on New Hampshire Sunday at 10:30 a.m.

Evansville earned a win and a draw in its two exhibition matches, defeating Belmont, 3-0, before playing Indianapolis to a scoreless tie. Senior Brandon Causey led the Aces with three points on a goal and an assist in the win over the Bruins, while junior Patrick Hodges and sophomore Mark Anthony Gonzalez combined for the other two UE goals.

In the draw with UIndy, juniors Joel Craig and Nick Schroeder, and freshman Jared Robinson all attempted three shots to lead Evansville offensively. Junior goalkeeper Eric Teppen earned the clean sheet against Belmont and recorded a save in his 65:46 between the posts against the Greyhounds.

Massachusetts returns 13 letterwinners, including six starters from its 2012 squad that finished 5-11-2 and 2-7-0 in the Atlantic 10. The Minutemen return their top scorer in Josh Schwartz, who led the team with 12 points, five goals and two assists last season. In addition, Schwartz was named to the preseason Atlantic 10 All-Conference Team by College Sports Madness.

New Hampshire finished 7-7-6 overall in 2012 and posted a 2-3-2 record in the America East Conference. The Wildcats return 20 letterwinners from last season, including leading scorer Robert Palumbo. Palumbo appeared in 19 games for UNH and tied for the team lead by scoring three goals and recording a pair of assists for eight points. Goalkeeper Travis Worra also returns after an impressive 2012 campaign, where he finished 7-4-6 with a .821 save percentage and 0.81 goals against average.

* Aces Host UT Martin Friday Night

After opening its season by splitting a pair of matches last weekend, the University of Evansville women’s soccer team will be back in action Friday at 7 p.m., when the Purple Aces host UT Martin at Arad McCutchan Stadium.

Evansville (1-1-0) split a pair of games with Murray State and Tennessee Tech last weekend, falling to the Racers, 1-0, before rebounding with a 2-1 win over the Golden Eagles. Freshman Emily Griebel got UE on the board in the 37th minute and senior Stephanie Thompson netted the game-winner in the 49th minute in the victory at TTU.

Defensively, junior Taylor Brand was named the Missouri Valley Conference Defensive Player of the Week, as she led an Evansville defensive unit that allowed just five shots on goal this weekend. The Aces surrendered just four shots on goal against Murray State and only one at Tennessee Tech.

UT Martin (0-1-1) opened its season with a narrow, 1-0 loss to Oklahoma State, before playing to a scoreless draw with Middle Tennessee State. The Skyhawks held OSU scoreless for over 84 minutes, before conceding the eventual game-winning tally in the 85th minute. UTM goalkeeper Mariah Klenke made seven saves and Hannah McGowen led UT Martin with two shots.

In the draw against MTSU, the two teams combined for 33 shots, as the Skyhawks took 17 shots to the Blue Raiders’ 16. Ellie Myrick led the team with five shots and three on goal, while Klenke collected nine more saves in net.

UTM returns 16 letterwinners and eight starters from last year’s team that finished 13-6-3 overall and won the Ohio Valley Conference regular-season title by going 8-1-1 in league play.

Friday’s match will mark the fourth in series history between Evansville and UT Martin. The two teams are tied in the all-time series at 1-1-1, as the Aces and Skyhawks played to a 2-2 draw in their last meeting in 2011.

* WBB in need of Managers and Male Practice Players

The women's basketball team is in need of team managers and male practice players. Being a manager is an opportunity to work for the team and their day-to-day operations.

Male practice players are also needed for the season. Being a practice player is a great way to stay in shape, receive some cool UE gear, and get the opportunity to continue playing basketball in a structure fashion.
