Upcoming Events

* Boston Marathon bombing police commissioner to speak at Snyder Lecture

Former Boston Police commissioner Ed Davis – who was at the forefront of the emergency response to the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing and the arrests that followed – will be the speaker for the upcoming University of Evansville’s Patricia Snyder Lecture. The lecture is Thursday, October 12 at 7:00 p.m., in Eykamp Hall, Ridgway University Center.  Doors open at 6:30 p.m. 

The event is free and open to the public but registration is required. The registration form can be found online at www.evansville.edu/EdDavis.

The topic of Davis’s lecture will be “Policing in America: The Changing Landscape of Our Cities & Law Enforcement’s Role in Protecting Our Communities.”

Davis’s experience during the Boston Marathon bombings was depicted in the feature film, Patriots Day, starring John Goodman as Commissioner Davis, which was released in January 2017.

Davis is currently president and CEO of the business strategy and security agency, Edward Davis LLC. He has built a stellar reputation on his experience in interagency collaboration and law enforcement on local, state, national, and international levels. His insight in cyber security and anti-terrorism, as well as his expert knowledge in crisis management and strategic planning translates across industries. Davis’s unique approaches to terrorism, cyber security, and policing have been adopted both nationally and internationally in Singapore, London, Northern Ireland, Jordan, and Israel.

The Patricia H. Snyder Concert and Lecture Series was made possible in 1997 through an endowment from the late Patricia H. Snyder, trustee and longtime friend of University, to bring speakers or performers of renown to Evansville at no cost to the public.

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

* Former death row inmate Anthony Hinton to speak Oct. 30 – all welcome

Anthony Ray Hinton and the cover of the book Just Mercy by Bryan StevensonThe 2017 University of Evansville Honors Program incoming class has read the book Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption, written by attorney Bryan Stevenson. The social justice themes brought forth in the book will be examined throughout the year and will include a presentation by community educator Anthony Ray Hinton, set for Monday evening (time TBD), October 30 in Eykamp Hall, Ridgway University Center. The campus community and public are welcome to this free event.

Hinton was falsely accused of committing two murders outside of Birmingham, Alabama, in 1985. He was wrongly convicted and spent nearly 30 years on Alabama's death row before he was exonerated and freed in April 2015. A deeply compelling speaker, he has become a powerful advocate against the death penalty and speaks nationally about the urgent need for criminal justice reform.

Several copies of the book, Just Mercy, are on reserve in the UE library and all are welcome to read it in preparation for Hinton’s visit.

Just Mercy is a powerful true story about the potential for mercy to redeem us, and a clarion call to fix our broken system of justice—from one of the most brilliant and influential lawyers of our time.

Stevenson was a young lawyer when he founded the Equal Justice Initiative, a legal practice dedicated to defending those most desperate and in need: the poor, the wrongly condemned, and women and children trapped in the farthest reaches of our criminal justice system. One of his first cases was that of Walter McMillian, a young man who was sentenced to die for a notorious murder he insisted he didn’t commit. The case drew Stevenson into a tangle of conspiracy, political machinations, and legal brinksmanship—and transformed his understanding of mercy and justice forever.

Just Mercy is at once an unforgettable account of an idealistic, gifted young lawyer’s coming of age, a moving window into the lives of those he has defended, and an inspiring argument for compassion in the pursuit of justice.

Please read Just Mercy and plan to join us on Monday, October 30.

* Updates regarding dining on campus - FAQ

How many Ace Bucks do I have?

You can now check your balance on-line! Login and registration can be found at: https://evansville.campuscardcenter.com/ch/login.html

You will see a number of accounts:

If you have a meal plan, that will display first along with the remaining Ace Bucks for that plan. Ace Bucks purchases will be taken from this account first.

Additional accounts will also be displayed:

  • Guest meal balances
  • Carry out records
  • Student Ace Bucks (i.e. $50 from the Student Services Fee)
  • Bonus Ace Bucks (i.e. promotional Ace Bucks for selecting certain plans / packages)

To set up a new account or get help accessing an existing account you will be sent to a new screen.

The flex dollars number is your UE ID Number.

Ace Bucks are referred to as Flex Dollars.

I’m looking for that extra $50 in Ace Bucks for paying the Student Services Fee – where is that?

These are called Student Ace Bucks and can be viewed online as described above.

Ace Bucks purchases are deducted from the meal plan allocation first.

Your balance at the register only reflects your meal plan allocation of Ace Bucks until this is used up.

Once your meal plan allocation is spent, the Student Ace Bucks allocation will kick in and you will see an additional $50 on your balance at the register.

So what about the bonus Ace Bucks for purchasing the Prime, Purple, or Ace Buck Packages?

Bonus Ace Bucks for Prime, Purple, or Ace Buck Packages should be reflected on your account.

Chartwells had to wait until after the meal change period was over to award these Bonus Ace Bucks.

  • Bonuses for Prime and Purple were added the morning of September 7.
  • Bonus Bucks from Ace Bucks purchases are added at time of purchase.

You can view your Bonus Ace Bucks balance online as described above.

I heard there was going to be a microwave available in Ridgway University Center – where is that?
There is now a microwave near the left service entrance of Rademacher’s Café.

Please feel free to heat your items there.

Where can I find items that are gluten free?

There is a new Avoiding Gluten Area featuring Items that have been prepared without gluten containing ingredients. Check out this area for avoiding gluten waffles, breads, cereals, and a toaster reserved for avoiding gluten items. There are also other avoiding offerings throughout Café Court, but this area will always feature these items!

Important info on labeling of avoiding gluten items from Chartwells: 

To identify menu items that have been prepared without gluten containing ingredients, look for item labels or ask to speak with the chef or manager. Please note that our menu items are not gluten free because we prepare and handle products containing gluten in our kitchens.

We make every effort to label menu options that were prepared without gluten ingredients. However, due to our open kitchens that handle gluten for the preparation of other menu items, we cannot guarantee that items made without gluten ingredients are “gluten-free,” as defined by FDA. While we make every effort to avoid gluten cross-contact, there is always the potential for cross-contact with other gluten containing food items, particularly in our self-serve areas. We encourage guests to speak to the chef or manager regarding any questions about the ingredients contained in the food being considered.

* Yazdanparast has paper accepted by "European Journal of Marketing"

Atefeh Yazdanparast, assistant professor of marketing, has had a paper accepted by the European Journal of Marketing, an A* ranked journal by the Australian Business Deans Council.
