* Recorded Session for Benefit Open Enrollment is Now Available

If you were unable to attend either of the Open Enrollment Zoom meetings, you can view the entire benefit presentation in the Open Enrollment section of the MyUE portal at: https://bit.ly/2GcdKph. You can also view all of the relevant documents beginning with the open enrollment memo for important announcements, reminders, and changes which will occur June 1 to the University’s benefits.

During the period of April 5 through April 16, benefit-eligible employees may enroll or make changes in the University’s health, life, long term disability, and dental insurance, and ACES flexible spending account benefit plans. It is the only chance for benefit-eligible employees to enroll or make changes until the next open enrollment period unless you have a qualifying change in status.

We will once again utilize an on-line enrollment process, eliminating all paper enrollment forms for health, life, dental, and long term disability insurance, as well as the ACES flexible spending account. This will ensure the accuracy of your enrollment elections and maintain records electronically regarding your current and future participation. Enrollment/changes to your TIAA and Emeriti VEBA Trust retirement plan salary deferrals will continue to be processed on paper forms available in the Office of Human Resources. Therefore, you do not need to re-enroll in the TIAA or Emeriti retirement plans. ALL benefit eligible employees (including those who do not want to make any changes to their current coverage) must enter their elections by April 16. Please review the open enrollment memo and On-Line Benefit Enrollment Documents on the HR Area of the MyUE portal, which should answer many of the questions you might have about this system.

Please contact the Office of Human Resources at ext. 2943 with any questions.

COVID-19 Corner

* Vaccine Mythbuster

MYTH: The second dose of the Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna vaccines is not needed

FACT: You need two doses of the Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna vaccines for it to develop immunity. It is not clear how effective or durable protection from a single dose would be. When you first get exposed to a vaccine or a foreign substance, your body generates cells that can recognize that foreign substance. The second time you get exposed, you body develops a stronger understanding of the virus and builds long-term immunity.

* BECOMING CENTERED Paintings by Lori Rivera

Local Artist Paints to Heal

Lori Rivera finds that the world nearly disappears when she paints, and she is deeply drawn into the meditative aspects of painting. She loves the healing benefits that painting provides, as she struggles with depression.

At any given time, Lori has a painting in progress on her painting wall in her home studio. Although her roots are in representational painting, she has recently decided to devote the majority of her time to growing as an abstract artist. She sees abstract art as the most fitting genre that allows her to communicate her emotions.

She usually starts with dark colors and then works up to lighter colors in the final layers. She feels this process is symbolic of rising from the darkness of depression and signifies her triumph over it. “As I go through this process with each painting, I am reminded of where I’ve been and how far I’ve come,” says Lori.

She started painting over ten years ago, but her interest in pursuing art as a career was reawakened when she was inspired by artists at Peace Zone, where she served as Executive Director. While working, she painted in her spare time and decided to pursue art full time several years ago.

Lori’s most recent project is creating paintings inspired by music, and she often listens to the music on repeat as she paints. She focuses on how the music makes her feel and communicates that feeling onto the canvas. Sometimes the music matches her mood, while other times the music she chooses is totally opposite of what she is feeling. Ultimately though, she relies on spontaneity and allows each painting to develop organically as each brushstroke guides the next.

Her work has been shown in Virginia, Pennsylvania, Ohio, New Harmony, and Evansville. You can see her work in person at the University of Evansville’s Krannert Gallery April 11th through May 9th. The exhibit, Becoming Centered, overlaps with Mental Health Month, which is during the month of May. The opening reception is April 22nd at 6:30 pm.

The Department of Art at UE offers a wide range of degree programs and areas of specialization in the visual arts. It houses a number of specialized studios for ceramics, drawing, metalwork and jewelry, painting, printmaking, photography, sculpture, visual communication design, and watercolor. The Krannert and Peterson Galleries are also a vital resource for the students, as well as the Evansville area.

Students can receive BFA, BA & BS degrees in a variety of Art Studies: Studio Art, Art and

Associate Studies, Art Education, Visual Communication Design and Pre-Art Therapy. This exhibition is sponsored by the Department of Art with the generous support of the Efroymson Family Fund. The Krannert Gallery is located on the first floor of Krannert Hall of Art & Music.

Please visit the UE website www.evansville.edu/majors/art/majors.cfm

Or FaceBook Page: University of Evansville Department of Art & Melvin Peterson Gallery

For more information about Lori and her art, visit www.loririverafineart.com.

These stunning, abstract paintings can be seen in the Krannert Gallery April 11 – May 9

A public Reception for the Artist is April 22, 6:30pm. Masks & Social Distancing will be observed.

Info You Should Know

* UE Theatre Salon Series Welcomed Stage Rigger Adam Gentry for Discussion on Experiences with Union Membership, Tours, and the Entertainment Industry

Adam Gentry.

Another installment of the UET Salon Series was held on Wednesday, April 7, featuring Adam Gentry.

Gentry is a prominent member of the rigging industry whose experience ranges from Broadway, to television, to some of the biggest events of the year. He has made a career out of using math in a hands-on way in both the theatre and film industries and ultimately keeps everyone onstage safe from above. He just finished working on a show for Netflix and is currently working on an HBO production until the theatre industry regains its footing. Earlier in the year, Adam was one of the head riggers for Super Bowl LV. He will continue his position as advance rigger for Disney’s ALADDIN on its first national tour once it reopens.

This semester, UE Theatre students will have the opportunity to experience over 25 workshops and salons with various professionals from the entertainment industry.

* UE Receives Gift from Koch Foundation for Doctorate of Psychology Program

The University of Evansville announced on April 12 a $1.5 million gift from the Koch Foundation that will support the development of a new Doctorate of Psychology in Clinical Psychology (PsyD) program. This new opportunity will allow for providers in the region to diagnose and treat conditions associated with the brain, behaviors, and mental health. 

"The Koch Foundation has long been a leader in our community for inspiring change through philanthropy,” said Christopher M. Pietruszkiewicz, president of UE. “The University of Evansville is tremendously appreciative of the Koch family’s spirit of philanthropy, commitment to excellence in higher education, and support of our future through this transformational gift.” 

Mental health was identified as a top priority for Vanderburgh and Warrick Counties in the most recent Community Health Needs Assessments (CHNA). The study was conducted for both counties by Deaconess Health System and Ascension St. Vincent, along with ECHO Community Healthcare, the United Way of Southwest Indiana, the Vanderburgh County Health Department, and the Welborn Baptist Foundation. The demand is high for mental health services in the Evansville community, but there are simply not enough providers to adequately serve the area.

Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, studies estimated that one out of five people will be diagnosed with a mental health condition at some point in life. Recent data now suggests that a third of COVID-19 survivors are suffering with mental health issues, including anxiety and mood disorders, which directly impacts the individuals surrounding them. Through the PsyD program at UE, trained and licensed mental health providers can be placed in the community to provide care and treatment in a timely manner.

The Koch Foundation was established in 1945 to fulfill a philanthropic mission to improve the quality of life within communities where Koch Enterprises conducts operations.

* Rohleder's Final Round Gives Him Top Ten Finish

Isaac Rohleder tied his career-low round on Tuesday to help the University of Evansville men’s golf team finish in a tie for 7th place at the Big Blue Intercollegiate.

The Evansville native carded a 2-under 69 in the final round to finish in a tie for 10th place with a 3-round tally of 214.  His round on Tuesday matched the career-low of 69 that he posted in the first round of the Murray State Invitational in the fall of 2019.  Rohleder posted rounds of 71 and 74 on Monday.

Finishing second for the Purple Aces was Carson Parker. After shooting a pair of even 71’s in the opening two rounds, Parker recorded a 75 on Tuesday.  His 217 tied him for 15th place.  Spencer Wagner wrapped up the tournament just one behind Parker with a 218.  A consistent effort saw him score a 73 in the third round to tie for 17th.

Henry Kiel registered a 78 on the final day to total 232 strokes for the tournament.  His top round of the weekend was Monday’s second one where he checked in with a 2-over 73.  Jessie Brumley also finished the final day with a 78 and completed the event with a 236.  Michael Ikejiani was one of the top five individuals, finishing with a 229.  He shot a 77 on Tuesday to finish with a 229.

With a final team score of 881, the Aces tied for 7th place with John A. Logan College.  Both were eight strokes behind Tennessee Tech while finishing nine ahead of Arkansas-Pine Bluff.  UT Martin finished Tuesday with a 283 to overtake Murray State for the team championship.  Their 856 defeated the Racers by one stroke.  Austin Knight from Murray State was medalist, clinching the top spot with a 210.  His even 71 on Monday saw him hold off a second-place tie by just one shot.

UE will wrap up the second at the Missouri Valley Conference Championship on April 25-26 in Chicago.
