* Jeff Wolf appointed president of EIIA

Jeff Wolf, vice president for fiscal affairs and administration, will conclude his service to the University of Evansville on December 31. Jeff will assume the presidency of EIIA, a non-profit organization headquartered in Chicago that offers insurance and risk management services for approximately 130 colleges and universities.

“Jeff has been a dedicated and effective member of UE’s senior administrative team since he arrived here in 2003,” said President Tom Kazee. “His understanding of fiscal matters, his counsel, and his commitment to UE will be greatly missed.” 

According to Jeff, "The decision to leave the University is one of the toughest of my career.  I have thoroughly enjoyed working with everyone here and the dedication and commitment to serving our students has been outstanding. The University has faced significant challenges in recent years, but the foundation for future growth and success has been set.  In my new role, I will be able to watch as UE grows and prospers from those decisions." 

Donna Teague, assistant vice president for fiscal affairs, will serve as interim vice president until a search to fill the position is concluded.

* Run, hide, fight – response to an active shooter

In the event of an active shooter, assess the situation! What do you know about the circumstances? What is the best response for you personally to insure your safety? Then decide:

  • RUN:  Flee the building if you can do so safely based on what you know is taking place within the building. (i.e. if you hear gunshots on the other side of the building and you are close to an exit, law enforcement recommends running from the building).  If you are outside, get as far away from the threat area as possible. In some situations, you might decide that you can safely run away from the campus if the reported gunman is a good distance away from your campus location. 
  • HIDE: Seek shelter inside of the building (classroom, closet, office, etc.) If you are in a position to lock a building door and can do so safely, do so. If there is a lock on an interior door and you can safely reach it, lock yourself in the space. Go to a location in the room where you cannot be seen and stay in place until you are notified the threat is over. Turn cell phone ringers and other tones off and turn off lights if possible.
  • FIGHT: If confronted with a gunman, you (and those with you) stand a better chance of surviving if you do something rather than nothing. Look around you. Can you use something in the room to help defend yourself?

Remember: All exterior doors to buildings may be locked if the occupants within the building can do so safely. Electronic card access may also be shut off. Use your best judgment in determining the safest course of action to protect yourself. Seconds count!

Watch the video – Run, Hide, Fight.

As a reminder, you can find information about emergency situations and procedures on the safety and security website including a video on the run, hide, fight response and additional information such as sheltering in place, outside and inside threats, and so forth.

* Campus prepares for active shooter drill

In cooperation with the Evansville Police Department, the University of Evansville is planning an active shooter drill.  In order to maintain the integrity of the drill exercise, the exact date and time will not be published in advance. Note: the drill is scheduled for some time between 8:00 a.m. on Tuesday, October 25 and 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, October 27. 

When the drill begins, all members of the campus community are expected to respond as if reacting to a real emergency situation.  Participants are asked not to call 9-1-1 during the drill so that there is no disruption to the delivery of emergency services in the city.

The drill will be announced to the campus community via an Ace Alert message. The alert will clearly state “THIS IS A DRILL” and will provide specific information relative to the location of the shooter.  Whether or not you are in the direct area of the emergency, you should respond as you would if this were a real campus emergency. The drill will conclude approximately 10-15 minutes after it begins with another Ace Alert message indicating the drill is over. 

The drill will not involve simulated gunshots; however, Evansville Police Department and other law enforcement personnel will be present on campus. Some building safety coordinators will also be present to assist with certain aspects of the drill. 

A post active shooter drill survey will be e-mailed to all faculty, administrators, staff, and students on or before Friday, October 28.  We ask that everyone respond to the survey as soon as possible after the drill.

* Last performance of UE Theatre's Orlando

The University of Evansville Department of Theatre will present Virginia Woolf’s Orlando, adapted by Sarah Ruhl, in the May Studio Theatre at 7:30 p.m. tonight.

Orlando follows the luxurious and romantic life of a young English duke who wakes up one morning to find he has transformed into a womanly duchess. Over the course of five centuries, the titular Orlando finds herself tangled up in colorful web of casual acquaintances and life-altering companions as she learns to navigate her new identity and find her place in the world. Through witty humor, fast-paced dialogue, and vivid storytelling, this spirited and poetic play explores the power of transformation and the concept of the self.

Ruhl is a Tony Award nominee and two-time Pulitzer Prize finalist. Most recently, she was named the recipient of the 2016 Steinberg Distinguished Playwright Award.

Steinberg Advisory Committee Member Paige Evans said of Ruhl, “Sarah Ruhl is unique. She fills her intelligent and highly theatrical plays with striking oddities and playful humor. Sarah is a prolific playwright of great distinction.”

Sam Schanwald, a senior theatre performance major from Pittsburg, Pennsylvania, serves as the director of the entirely student designed and directed production. The creative team for Orlando includes scenic designer Elizabeth Tredinnick, a junior from Madison, Wisconsin, costume designer Mitchel Wolf, a senior from Chaska, Minnesota; lighting designer Renée K. Voteau, a junior from St. Louis, Missouri; sound designer Benjamin Phillips, a senior from Fort Worth, Texas; dramaturg Olivia L. Rigdon, a senior from Colorado Springs, Colorado; and stage manager Melia Schnefke, a junior from St. Louis, Missouri. Chuck Meachum serves as technical director for the production.

The cast includes senior McKenna Ceci, from Peachtree City, Georgia; juniors Davis Cowart, from Bronwood, Georgia; Joseph W. Schwalb, from Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Zoie Quinn, from San Antonio, Texas; sophomores Alexandra Curren, from McKinney, Texas; Marshall Hopkins, from Baldwin City, Kansas; and freshman Shannon White, from Rockwall, Texas.

Tickets are $11 for adults and $9 for senior adults, students, and UE faculty and staff. UE students may pick up their free student ticket beginning at noon on the day of the performance they wish to attend.

His talk is titled "Climate Change as a Security Issue," and will focus on the political implications of different ways of treating climate change as a security issue.

Waever will present his research from approximately noon-12:45 p.m. to allow those with 1:00 p.m. classes to exit with plenty of time, but will engage in a follow-up Q&A session with those who would like to engage in broader conversation about climate change, international security, and/or recent events in Europe. With such a timely topic that engages social and natural sciences alike, we hope you will attend!

Waever has published several prominent books, including Security: A New Framework for Analysis, Regions and Powers: The Structure of International Security, International Relations Scholarship around the World, and Climate Change: Global Risks, Challenges & Decisions.

He was elected to the Royal Danish Academy of Sciences and Letters in 2007 and in 2014 became a Knight of the Order of the Dannebrog, Denmark's highest national honor.
 

* Renowned French historian to give lecture at UE on November 8

The Office of Diversity and Equity and the Department of Foreign Languages and Cultures invite the UE and Evansville community to hear renowned French historian, Pap Ndiaye's lecture "The Minority Paradox: Blackness in France" on November 8, from 4-5 p.m., in Room 162, Schroeder School of Business Building.

His presentation will discuss the notion of French blacks and the tension within the classic French republican understanding of citizenship. How and why is it intellectually and politically legitimate to use this notion? Ndiaye will discuss the reasons why French scholars have been reluctant to focus on racial minorities. He will also elaborate on the notion of blackness, that is the subjectification of racial identities in France in the 20th century, and show why a new blackness has emerged in France in the past few years.

For more information, read this brief biography of Ndiaye.

If you have any questions, please e-mail sb413@evansville.edu.

* Ireland's revolution of 1916 to be topic of Fiddick Lecture

This year’s annual Thomas C. Fiddick Lecture sponsored by the University of Evansville’s Department of History is planned for tomorrow - Friday, October 28. The lecture begins at 7:00 p.m. in Room 170 (Smythe Lecture Hall) in the Schroeder School of Business Building. This event is free and open to the public.

Daire Koegh, professor of history at Dublin City University, will be the speaker. His topic will be “Ireland's Revolution 1916: Patrick Pearse and Education.”

Keogh has served as president of St Patrick’s College Drumcondra since 2012. He has published extensively on the history of popular politics, religion, and education in Ireland. He has a strong profile as a historian and an educationalist. He has lectured widely at universities in Europe, America, and Australia.

A former Government of Ireland senior research fellow, Keogh is currently principal investigator of an Irish Research Council funded project to publish the extensive correspondence of Cardinal Paul Cullen.

Keogh is a graduate of the National University of Ireland, Trinity College, the Gregorian University in Rome, and Glasgow University.

Fiddick, for whom the Fiddick Memorial Lecture is named, served as professor of history at the University of Evansville from 1963 to 2002. In his 39 years at the University, he was a dedicated teacher, a productive scholar, and a tireless fighter in the cause of justice. His untimely death on the day of his retirement stunned the UE community, especially his many former students. It was from the former students’ efforts in particular, with the support of Fiddick’s friends and the University, that the annual Thomas C. Fiddick Memorial Lecture was established.

For more information, call UE’s Department of History at 812-488-2965.

* Reminder - outsourcing of USPS meter mailing services

Effective Monday, October 17, UE distribution services/mail services begins outsourcing the metering of United States Postal Service domestic and international mail (letters, flats, etc.) and USPS domestic parcels to Data Mail Inc., a local third party vendor. UE mail services will no longer have equipment to meter mail and/or process parcels for shipment in-house after Friday, October 14.

What Is Changing!

  • UE will no longer have a USPS meter or mailing equipment. Additionally, UE will no longer have a UPS account or UPS shipping equipment.
  • The current UE mail processing form has been updated and re-named the UE USPS Mail/Parcel Processing Request form. Also, instructions are available titled UE USPS Mail/Parcel Processing Request Form Instructions. Both are available on the mail services website on AceLink Areas under Forms & Instructions.
  • Current yellow UE account barcode cards are being replaced with new cards titled UE account barcode card provided by Data Mail Inc. A sample of the new UE account barcode card and instructions are available on the mail services website on AceLink Areas under Forms & Instructions. Departments having existing yellow account barcode cards are asked to turn these cards in to Mail Services to be exchanged for new Data Mail Inc. generated UE account barcode cards. Beginning Monday, October 17, four un-laminated UE account barcode cards will be distributed followed by 8-10 laminated UE account barcode Cards.
  • UE mail services will no longer provide UPS services due to low outgoing package volumes, removal of equipment, and upcoming UPS rate increases on average of 4.9 percent with an overall increase of 9 percent for packages weighing 1-10 pounds. Departments desiring UPS services may contact UPS directly, set up a department account, request a site pickup, and pay UPS directly with a UE Pcard.
  • Departments desiring to ship USPS International parcels will go directly to a local post office, complete the required USPS documentation (customs forms, etc.), and pay USPS directly with a UE Pcard. The same can be accomplished with UPS but typically at a much higher cost.

What Remains the Same!

UE distribution services/mail services will continue to:

  • Pickup UE incoming mail and parcels from the USPS, Monday through Friday, except for UE holidays
  • Process incoming business reply and short paid UE mail
  • Sort mail by UE campus department in the mail services area
  • Make a daily - Monday through Friday - campus mail run to deliver and/or pick up department mail that is pickup ready and includes USPS domestic and international letter mail, USPS domestic parcels, pre-stamped and sealed mail, and campus mail.
  • Deliver to residence halls as is currently performed.

* Submit pictures for the Study Abroad Photo Contest!

The staff of UE’s Office of Study Abroad is looking for some new photos of students who have studied abroad in the past, and they are hoping you can help! They have set up a photo contest in the hopes that you’ll submit your pictures to be hung in their office and to also be used in future marketing materials.

In order to get a good variety of photos, they have created a few categories for pictures that they are looking for. They are:

1. Your university: Send pictures of you in front of your university/on your campus to highlight your home away from home.
2. The great outdoors: They’d love any pictures that highlight the environment and capture the beauty of where you studied.
3. Harlaxton: Harlaxton gets its own category because it’s so popular. Send photos of your time at Harlaxton and around the manor.
4. Live like a local: Do you have any pictures of yourself engaging in local activities or participating in cultural traditions? Send them!
5. Artistic eye: Have any unique pictures that capture something special about your trip? Did you take a picture you think is particularly artistic? Send them in!

There will be a table at the International Education Week Marketplace on November 14 from 11:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m., where votes can be cast to select the photo contest winners. Stop by to cast your vote! The top voted picture from each category will be hung in the study abroad office.

For more information, contact the residence life staff or visit our website.

* Student participants needed for online study regarding opinions on death penalty

Athletics

* Aces complete Dayton Invitational

The University of Evansville Men’s And Women’s Golf teams played their final round of 18 on Tuesday to complete the Dayton Invitational at NCR Country Club.

Kayla Katterhenry and Lexie Sollman were the top performers for the ladies. Katterhenry equaled her opening round score, finishing the final round with a 78. She finished in 24th with a 156. Sollman tied for 48th place. She was the Aces’ #2 golfer on the day and for the event. After opening with an 83, Sollman lowered her score to a 79, totaling 162 for the event.

Two behind her was Maggine Camp. She dropped her score by two strokes in the final round, registering an 81 to notch 164 to tie for 53rd. Madison Chaney carded an 86 in the final round to finish with a 171 while Giulia Mallmann completed the day with an 88, notching a total of 172.

Evansville came home in 13th on the team side with a 652. They were five shots outside of the top ten. Findlay swept the team and individual championships. A 589 gave them the team win by 13 shots over Oakland while Shelby Warner fired off the lowest round of the event – a 3-under 70 – to beat teammate Makenzie Torres by five shots.

Jon Pick was the low of the day for the men. A 5-over 76 gave him a 154 for the tournament. That tied him for 42nd on the leaderboard. Topping the Aces at the tournament was Tyler Gray. After a 1-over 72 on Monday, Gray carded a 78 on Tuesday to finish with a 150, tying for 16th.

Wil Pahud tied for 29th place. He checked in with a 77 on Tuesday to complete the event with a 152. Pick was third for the Aces while Cameron Weyer was fourth on the squad. His final round total finished at an 82 and he finished with a 162. Noah Reese completed the tournament with a 163 with Zac Turi shooting a 166.

As a team, UE came home in 13th place with a final total of 616. In a highly-competitive tournament, Evansville was just ten strokes away from a top five finish and 12 outside of the top three. Michigan extended its lead to take the team win, notching a 580. Dayton took second with a 588. Ian Kim and Nick Carlson of the Wolverines tied for medalist with Kim clinching the win in a one-hole playoff.

For the men, this was their final event of the fall. The ladies will be in Evansville next week, hosting the Braun Intercollegiate on Monday and Tuesday at Oak Meadow.
 

* Women's Soccer set for return to Arad McCutchan Stadium

After taking a break from competitive play last week, the University of Evansville Women’s Soccer team will play three of the most consequential regular season matches of the season, beginning today as Indiana State will pay a visit to Arad McCutchan Stadium.

The Aces, who are 3-10-1 overall, have impressed so far in three regular season Missouri Valley Conference matches, posting a 2-1-0 mark. The Sycamores represent the first obstacle for UE, and the team will continue play later this week versus league-leading Illinois State before wrapping up the season later this month at Missouri State. If the Aces were to get past all three, as they did a season ago, they would lay claim to the MVC regular season crown.

The Aces will be looking to bounce back from a 1-0 setback earlier this month at Loyola as the host Ramblers picked up a late goal to hand UE its first conference loss of the season. If UE is going to get back on track, the team will be looking to get leading scorer Bronwyn Boswell back in the scoring column. The senior out of Frisco, Texas, hasn’t found the net in the last seven matches after bagging five goals in the first nine matches.

Montana Portenier, who has also enjoyed notable season after missing all of last year due to injury, is the only other player with multiple goals for UE, finding the net twice. Molly Lear, JBess Ruby, Mikayla Harvey, and Colleen Dierkes have each scored as well.

Defensively, the Aces have been buoyed by freshman defenders Samantha Brown and Olivia Panella, who have become regular starters on the outside, and all-conference first-teamer Emily Richardson has been solid in the heart of the back line. Whitney Biggs has played every minute in goal for UE, logging three shutouts in the process.

Meanwhile, Indiana State will be looking to halt its three-match winless skid, which includes an overtime loss at Tennessee as well as a scoreless draw with Northern Iowa. The Sycamores are 6-9-1 overall and 1-2-1 in conference play.

Kickoff today is slated for 6:00 p.m.
