* Sympathy to Family and Friends of William F. Louden

It is with great sadness that we share news of the death of our friend and colleague, University Librarian Emeritus William F. Louden.

Bill Louden was a fixture of campus life at the University of Evansville for more than two decades.  He was a native of New Castle, Pennsylvania, and was a loyal alumnus of Mount Union College in Alliance, Ohio, from which he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1969.  He was awarded the degree Master of Divinity from Duke University in 1973, and the following year he earned the degree Master of Library Science from the University of Pittsburgh.  Prior to coming to the University of Evansville, Bill served as a professional librarian at Heidelberg College in Tiffin, Ohio, at Baylor University in Waco, Texas, and at the University of Cincinnati.  In 1994 he joined the University of Evansville where he served as University Librarian for 21 years.

Bill was a great believer in the value of a liberal-arts based education: he was devoted to the UE Libraries, to the library staff, and to the library’s many friends among the UE community.  He held in special esteem the many students whose lives he touched through his years of teaching in our First Year Seminar program, and before that, the World Cultures sequence.

Bill had only just retired from the University Libraries in May of this year.  He was preceded in death by his parents, Jean R. and William L. Louden of New Castle, Pennsylvania.  In accordance with Bill's wishes, there will be no visitation or funeral service.

Friends wishing to make a gift to the UE Libraries in Bill’s memory should contact Abigail Werling at (812) 488-2272 or by email at am275@evansville.edu.

* UE Theatre Opens 2015–2016 Season with The Royal Society of Antarctica

The University of Evansville announces a dynamic start to its 2015–2016 season - The Royal Society of Antarctica by Mat Smart, a 2001 UE alumnus, opening Friday, Sept. 25, at 7:30 p.m., in UE’s Shanklin Theatre. Additional performances are at 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 26, Oct. 1, 2, 3, and at 2:00 p.m. on Sept. 27 and Oct. 4.

“This really impressive new play succeeds partly because of its highly distinctive setting at the bottom of the world, partly because Mat Smart knows how to forge a metaphor about a community of needy misfits all running away from something, partly because it is penned with real wit and affection, and mostly because it brings together a collection of highly distinctive and lovable characters in whose fate we find ourselves strikingly invested.” - Chris Jones, The Chicago Tribune

Amy Attaway, guest artist and 2001 UE alumna, directs The Royal Society of Antarctica. Department chair and associate professor of theatre Eric Renschler serves as the scenic designer; Caitlin McCarthy, a senior from Los Angeles, Calif., is the costume designer; Aaron Curry, a senior from Glendale, Ariz., is the lighting designer; Benjamin Phillips, a junior from Fort Worth, Texas, is the sound designer; and professor of theatre Diane Brewer is the dramaturg.

The twelve-member cast features sophomore Joseph W. Schwalb, from Milwaukee, Wis., as Ace; senior Samie Johnson, from Denver, Colo., as Dee; junior Chris Brumley, from Louisville, Ky., as Jake; junior Kit Bulla, from Springhill, Tenn., as Miller; senior Devin Fluker, from Las Vegas, Nev., as Pam; junior Rachel Woods, from Franklin, Tenn., as Tamara; sophomore Davis Cowart, from Bronwood, Ga., as UT Tim; senior Dylan Crow, from Danville, Ky., as UT Tom; freshmen Matt McDonald, from Carmel, Ind., Daniel Stewart, from Fort Worth, Texas, and Justin Lyons, from Evansville, Ind., as Jano 1, Jano 2, and Jano 3, respectively; and senior Henry Ragan, from Herndon, Va., as Hank (voiceover).

Ticket prices are $15 for adults and $13 for senior adults, students, and UE faculty and staff. UE students may obtain one free student rush ticket beginning at 12 noon on the day of the performance they wish to attend.

Subscriptions for the four-play Shanklin Theatre season are still available for $44 for adults and $38 for senior adults, students, and UE faculty. Including the play The Royal Society of Antarctica, a season subscription also includes the musical Big Fish, book by John August and music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa, Nov. 13 through 22; Lily Dale, by Horton Foote, Feb. 19 through 28; and Richard III, by William Shakespeare, Apr. 15 through 24.

Tickets may be purchased by calling (812) 488–2031, Monday through Friday, noon to 5 p.m.

* Andiron Lecture on October 7

Matthew Hummel, UE alum and paralegal for the Vanderburgh County Public Defender Agency, will be the speaker for the Andiron Lecture on October 7. All the lectures in the series are at 4 p.m. in Eykamp 252 in Ridgway University Center, preceded by a social hour at 3:45 p.m. with beverages. All the Andiron lectures are free and open to the public.

Hummel's topic will be “The Antithesis of Justice.” The abstractness of justice does not stop people from having some sense of what it is, even without really considering it. There exists a great rift among the varying conceptions of justice today. This lecture describes and looks at significant evidence of an antithesis of justice—a communicatory event brought on by epistemological crisis and characterized by counter-rationality and antagonism—which poses a considerable, unyielding threat to conceptions of justice grounded in rational debate. It also outlines suggestions for adapting the antithesis of justice into social philosophy as well as measures for coping with its effects.

Hummel graduated from the University of Evansville with bachelor’s degrees in criminal justice and philosophy. He earned a Master of Arts in liberal studies with a focus in ethics and values from Valparaiso University Graduate School and is finishing up some post-graduate work in humane education. Presently, Hummel works as a paralegal for the Vanderburgh County Public Defender Agency and teaches a series of life skills classes at the United Caring Shelter. He is married to fellow UE alumna Caitlyn Prosser. Hummel has been published twice in the Blackwell Series of pop culture and philosophy books. He is also a regular performer with the Evansville Civic Theatre.

* Come Try Out the Lightboard!

Faculty, have you ever considered flipping your classroom? Or, on a smaller scale: have you ever traveled to a conference and had to miss class? Did you wish there was a good way to still get content to your class that day? Had you thought about recording a video of lecture content, but stopped short? Were you concerned about how much time would be required, in preparation or post-production?

Please consider giving the lightboard a try! This powerful new lecture capture tool has arrived on campus thanks to the collaboration of many generous people who gave of their time and talent to make it possible. It dramatically simplifies the process and lowers the barrier to easily and quickly generate high-quality video-lecture content that can be as dynamic and engaging as you are.

While it is true that many lightboard users at other universities are often in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) disciplines, the applications to other disciplines abound! Whether it is from diagramming sentences, outlining or reverse–outlining written work, or to other potential applications, the ways in which you could use this tool are limited only by your imagination. You could even have your students use it for presentations, collaboration, or group work!

Please, take a look at the video(s) linked in the second paragraph above and contact Mike Slade (ms579; x2056) in the Department of Chemistry to request access or for more information.

* CBS Sports Network to televise MVC MBB Slate

CBS Sports Network will air a 10-game Missouri Valley Conference men’s basketball television package, including the State Farm MVC Men’s Basketball Tournament semifinals as well as eight regular-season games, Commissioner Doug Elgin announced today.

Additionally, CBS Sports will continue to televise the Arch Madness title game, which it has aired for ten consecutive years.

Evansville is set to have at least two games televised on the CBS Sports Network. The first will be the Jan. 19 home game versus Loyola while the second will be the Feb. 11 home contest against Illinois State.

“Gaining the ability to have a second national partner televise our men’s basketball contests was a key element in our negotiations with ESPN, and we recognize ESPN and CBS Sports for their continued willingness to spread the Conference brand through a sublicense agreement,” said Elgin, who is in his 28th year with the Conference.

“Our postseason tournament begins the final week of men’s basketball coverage leading up to Selection Sunday, and we are grateful to have heightened Arch Madness broadcast exposure from CBS Sports,” said Elgin.

The regular-season package of games on CBS Sports Network reflects the success of The Valley, which saw two teams represent the league in the final Associated Press rankings in 2015 -- Wichita State (14) and UNI (11) -- as a well as a run to the NCAA Sweet 16 by Wichita State, which marked the sixth MVC team to reach the Sweet 16 in the past 10 years.

Of the seven pre-determined league match-ups, Wichita State will appear in three games, while Evansville, Illinois State, Loyola and UNI are slated for two appearances each.  The CBS Sports Network package, which features contests on Saturdays and select mid-week nights, begins on Jan. 9, with Wichita State visiting Southern Illinois at SIU Arena in Carbondale, Ill., in a 3 p.m. Central telecast.

The men’s basketball regular-season package in January also features Loyola at Evansville (Jan. 19), and Loyola at Wichita State (Jan. 27).

In the month of February, telecasts include UNI at Drake (Feb. 6), Illinois State at Evansville (Feb. 11), Missouri State at Wichita State (Feb. 18) and Illinois State at UNI (Feb. 20).

The February lineup concludes on Saturday, Feb. 27, when ESPN and CBS Sports Network will utilize the Wildcard Selection process to choose from five games -- Illinois State at Wichita State, UNI at Evansville, Missouri State at Southern Illinois, Loyola at Drake and Bradley at Indiana State.

The wildcard games selected to air on ESPN and CBS Sports Network will be announced on Friday, Feb. 12.

CBS Sports’ coverage of the 2016 State Farm MVC Men’s Basketball Championship -- the league’s 26th consecutive postseason tournament in St. Louis -- will include the semifinal games on March 5 on CBS Sports Network. The title contest on March 6 will air at 1 p.m. Central on CBS Sports.

* Aces Volleyball to open home MVC schedule Friday

For just the second weekend of the season, the University of Evansville volleyball team will be at the Carson Center as the Purple Aces open up the Missouri Valley Conference portion of their home schedule on Friday evening against Loyola.

The Aces and Ramblers tangle at 7 p.m. on Friday with Bradley making its way to the Carson Center for a 6 p.m. match on Saturday.

Saturday evening saw the Aces put together their top conference performance in recent memory despite falling by a 3-2 final at UNI. It marked the first time the Aces and Panthers went to five sets since the 1997 season and was just the fourth time since 1997 that the Aces have pushed the Panthers past three sets.

Evansville opens up its home conference schedule this weekend with matches against Loyola and Bradley. Last year, the Aces completed a weekend sweep over the pair, earning its first home conference weekend sweep since 2010. Interestingly enough - the Aces did record a weekend conference sweep each season from 2008-10.

A 40-kill performance by Kim Deprez set the University of Evansville program record on Saturday versus UNI. Her final tally was the second-most in the NCAA this season and was the top MVC tally thus far. Deprez has averaged 5.33 digs per set this season and is solidly in the top 15 in the NCAA.

The performance against the Panthers marked the most digs by a player in UE history. It broke Julie Sylvester’s record of 38, which was set in 2009. Her total was the 8th-most in a match in conference history and was the most that a league player recorded since 2013. She was also strong in the MVC opener at Drake, posting 20 kills in just three sets against the Bulldogs. Deprez leads the MVC with 5.33 per set and is even better in two league outings, posting 7.50.

Aces sophomore Genesis Miranda is ranks near the top of the NCAA in several key statistics. Her highest rank is 3rd in the nation in total points with 318.5. That translates into 5.06 per set, 15th in the country. When it comes to attacks, her numbers are just as impressive. She ranks 4th in the nation with 772 total attacks and is 9th with 12.25 per set. Many of those attacks are converted into kills and her 4.25/set is 28th in the NCAA while her total kill tally of 268 is 7th.

Off to their best start since 1995 are the Loyola Ramblers, who are off to a 12-3 start to the season. They had an 11-match win streak snapped on Monday with a 3-1 loss to Drake. Aside from their stellar record, the Ramblers lead the conference in several categories including: hitting percentage (.258), opponent hitting (.154), assists (13.14) and kills (13.94/set). Sami Hansen is the top hitter in the league as she begins the weekend at .441.

The Braves start the weekend with an overall mark of 5-9 and are 0-2 in league play. After starting the season with a 5-1 record, Bradley has dropped its last seven matches, including a Tuesday loss to UNI. Senior Jessica Teel ranks second in the conference in service aces with 0.37 per set. She is just 0.02 away from the top spot. Defensively, Lea Sack is third in the Valley with 4.75 digs per set.
