* Stop by and Sign the Truss for the New Residence Hall

Construction for the new residence hall at the University of Evansville is well underway. The roof truss, which is the main support structure for the building, will soon be added.

Long after the residence hall is completed and students move in, these signatures will remain on this historic piece.

Please join President Pietruszkiewicz as the first signatures are added tomorrow, October 21, at 2:30 p.m. The truss will be located off Walnut Street between the construction site and Ridgway University Center. If you can’t attend tomorrow, the truss will be available for signatures through next Tuesday during the following dates and times:

Thursday, October 21 from 2:30 p.m. until 4:00 p.m.

* UE Clay Club Chili Bowl Sale

Due to forecasted rain, the Chili Bowl Sale has been moved to Friday, October 29, from 11:30AM-1PM. The sale will be held indoors in Eykamp Hall instead of the East Terrace Lawn. Please view the map below to see where the line begins and ends. Volunteers will be there to help guide visitors through the lines. 

Plan to stop by to purchase your chili bowls and fill with Chef Brown’s chili (paper containers are available if you prefer not to use the bowls). Seating will be available for those who would like to have their chili in Eykamp. Masks will be required at all times except while eating.

Patrons will be given a number upon arrival at a check in table for a certain group (1, 2, 3, 4, 5). Groups will then be allowed into the sales area to pick out the bowls in 10-minute increments. Subsequent groups will be allowed in after the previous one is finished. Please be respectful of everyone's space.

For $10, customers can buy a one-of-a-kind ceramic bowl and chili. Larger bowls from $15-$50 will also be for sale. Some more artistic larger bowls will be sold at a silent auction as well ranging in price from $75-$125. Customers can only buy a maximum of eight chili bowls. Cash or check (made out to UE Clay Club) only for the event.

The bowls are made by members of the Clay Club and other UE students, faculty, staff, alumni, and members of the community.

This year 100% of the sales will go to St. Vincent de Paul’s Food Pantry. The Clay Club members chose this organization to assist in fighting hunger in our local area.

The purpose of the Clay Club is to help further the knowledge of the ceramic arts at the University of Evansville, to provide activities (social and educational) to all interested students, and to offer visibility of the ceramic arts to the University and the community as a whole.

The Clay Club members raise funds to attend conferences, visit museums and galleries, and host visiting artists.

Professor Matteson, Chair of the Department of Art and Advisor to Clay Club said: “A lot of hours went into creating these unique ceramic bowls. The artists dedicated a lot of energy and hard work. I am blessed to have such a wonderful group to work with on such a great cause.”

* Center for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion: Self-Service Gender Identity Announcement

The observance of LGBTQ+ History Month and National Coming Out Day occurs in the month of October. It’s fitting that several University offices collaborated to activate features for students and employees related to gender identities, personal pronouns, and sexual orientations on Self-Service, Blackboard, and UE email.

Students who wish to include their chosen name, and/or who wish to add their pronouns and gender identity may do so the following way:

  1. Log into Self-Service
  2. Click their username in the upper-right
  3. Select “User Profile”
  4. On the blue bar listing confirmation information, locate the link for “Go To Contact Info”, and click it.

Please take note of the following when making changes:

  • Chosen name, gender identity, and pronoun information is your personal choice – how you would like to be addressed by the University’s faculty, staff, and administrators. Your chosen name will be associated with your Self-Service site, Blackboard site, and email. Faculty members and advisors will also be able to see your chosen name on rosters and advisee lists. Should you require a legal name change, please contact the Office of the Registrar (for students) or Office of Human Resources (for employees).
  • Pronoun information is currently displayed on your Self-Service site. This information is not shared outside of the University.
  • Proxy users—those whom you’ve granted permission to view your information—will continue to see your name as your birth or legal name. Any mail sent to your home address will be addressed using the same information entered in the Self-Service ‘Mail Label’ field.
  • Gender Identity and Personal Pronouns will only be used on campus. If you do not see your appropriate gender identity or pronouns, please contact the OTS Helpdesk through help@evansville.edu.

Please note that this isn’t intended to be a nickname tool (for more information contact the Registrar or Human Resources) – it is intended for individuals who identify using a name that differs from their gendered birth name, gender identity that doesn’t match birth gender, and/or pronouns that differ from those associated with their birth gender. Please contact the Office of the Registrar or the Office of Human Resources if you wish to specify a nickname.

We appreciate your patience as we listened to our LGBTQ+ community members and developed the most comprehensive response available through our platforms.

It’s our collective intent to demonstrate an inclusive community whenever possible.

* SNACK DRIVE

Senior nursing students at the University of Evansville are sponsoring a food drive for the Dream Center. The Dream Center provides children with meals/snacks, assistance with their schoolwork, guide children in faith, and motivate them to have a positive work ethic.

Changemaker Corner

* Embrace Partners with Fifth Third to Support Jacobsville Businesses

The University of Evansville, with the support of Fifth Third Bank, is launching the Jacobsville Advantage, a collaborative effort that assists small businesses in the community with the resources necessary for growth. The overall project was created by Embrace Marketing, a marketing and communications agency managed by UE students. Members of the team hope the innovative program will strengthen Jacobsville businesses and bring strategic growth to the area.

Members of Embrace held a launch event on the morning of October 21 at The Forge on Main construction site. They were joined with UE officials, Evansville councilmen, local business owners, local media, and more.

For some time, Fifth Third has been partnering with UE and the Small Business Development Corporation to find innovative solutions and initiatives for the Jacobsville community, in which approximately 460 businesses are located. After conducting research to identify the best ways to support small businesses in the community, Embrace found that marketing assistance was a significant need. Because small businesses often do not have the funds to strategically market their goods or services, they may struggle to be profitable. With a grant from Fifth Third to launch their efforts, Embrace will work one-on-one with business owners to create marketing campaigns and increase brand awareness and reach.

Any business owner in the Jacobsville community can receive these services at a very low cost, thanks to the grant from Fifth Third. A stairstep approach will set the initial 5 hours at $10 per hour, with increasing rates up to $50 after 35 hours of service. To learn more or schedule an appointment with the team, businesses can apply on the Jacobsville Advantage website.

Embrace was founded in 2018 by UE alumnus Joe Ellsworth as well as the University’s Center for Innovation & Change. This unique program, now guided by alums Keith Leonhardt and Emily Schuster, is entirely student-run and provides experiential, hands-on learning for students. Clients of Embrace receive affordable marketing and communication services, including graphic design, rebranding, advertising, and consulting.

The Jacobsville Advantage is one of several improvements UE has brought to the community. ChangeLabs, or semester-long courses that seek to create positive change, helped implement Bike Share for the city. Three UE students created the CommuniTree at Mickey’s Kingdom, a solar-powered structure that provides wi-fi and charging ports for mobile devices. The University also obtained $90,000 in solar panels for the Carver Community Organization. Additionally, UE teamed up with Glenwood Leadership Academy to launch the mad hot ballroom program to enhance art education and performance opportunities.

Congratulations

* Dr. James MacLeod Receives Indiana Historical Society's Hubert Hawkins History Award

Each year, the Indiana Historical Society (IHS) presents the Foudners Day Awards, which recognize outstanding individuals and organizations whose efforts have enriched the lives of others by conveying awareness and appreciation of Indiana's history on local, regional, and statewide levels. James MacLeod, PhD, chair of the Department of History, Politics, and Social Change, has been presented with the 2021 Hubert Hawkins History Award.

The Hubert Hawkins History Award is made annually to a local historian for his or her distinguished service and career in local history. MacLeod is an active local historian, serving on the Boards of the Vanderburgh County Historical Society; the Southwestern Indiana Historical Society; and the Evansville Museum of Art, History and Science.

“Dr. James MacLeod is the heir apparent for local academic history studies in Vanderburgh County,” said Terry Hughes, President of the Vanderburgh County Historical Association. “His books on World War II and cartoonist Karl Kae Knecht fill voids in local history research, and his documentary film on WWII in Evansville will be a lasting treasure for the community.”

“His original research into Evansville’s history is a significant addition to the body of knowledge documenting our community’s development," said Tom Lonnberg, Chief Curator and Curator of History at the Evansville Museum of Arts, History, and Science. "His leadership in this area and ready willingness to share his findings are an invaluable resource.”

Jennifer Greene, Chief Archivist at the University of Southern Indiana, added, “Dr. James MacLeod has made the old new again through his books and projects about local history. He brings a sense of humor in his editorial cartoons that highlights the issue of the day in much the same way Karl K. Knecht did, a history he brought to life in his recent book about the cartoon editorialist. He supports the community in his work with organizations like Southwestern Indiana Historical Society, of which he has been a long-standing board member, but also in his involvement in civic projects.”

MacLeod was educated at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland, receiving a Master of Arts in 1988 and a PhD in 1993. He taught history and British studies at Harlaxton College in England from 1994-1999. Since 1999,  he has been teaching at UE. Currently, MacLeod chairs the Department of History, Politics, and Social Change, and he teaches courses in European History and the two World Wars. In 2009, he received the Outstanding Teacher Award at the UE commencement.

MacLeod is the author of Evansville in World War Two, which was published in 2015, and The Cartoons of Evansville’s Karl Kae Knecht, published in 2017. In 2016, he wrote and co-produced a 2-part documentary on Evansville in World War II for WNIN PBS, titled Evansville at War. In 2000, he published a book on 19th-century British religion titled The Second Disruption. MacLeod has written over 30 other scholarly publications, delivered hundreds of public lectures, and won many awards for teaching and scholarship., and was UE’s Outstanding Teacher in 2009.

“Founders Day Awards honor the people and organizations who toil in the fields of history to create resources that benefit our state and its many communities,” said Susan Jones-Huffine, chair of the board of trustees of the Indiana Historical Society. “Our history proves that in times like these, we have reason to be hopeful.”

The IHS will honor Founders Day Award recipients during a virutal celebration on November 1. It will be streamed on Facebook Live beginning at 6 p.m.

* Dr. Kyle Matsel, Assistant Professor of Physical Therapy and Dr. Kyle Kiesel, Emeritus Professor presented live webinar

Professor Emeritus Dr. Kyle Kiesel and Assistant Professor of Physical Therapy Dr. Kyle Matsel recently presented a live webinar on managing athletes with extension oriented low back pain. The course focused on the key aspects of identification and treatment of extension-oriented low back pain, which is commonly encountered in athletic training and other sports medicine environments. The program is designed to return the athlete to full activity safely while reducing the probability of recurrence and long-term disabling consequences often associated with low back pain. Dr. Kiesel and Dr. Matsel's expertise is greatly appreciated and we are proud of how they represent UE.

* In Remembrance of Professor Jerry Seng

Gerald “Jerry” Thomas Seng, 85, died on Sunday, October 17, at his home in Evansville. 

After receiving a BS in biology at Purdue, Dr. Seng joined the Army where he won the Company Marksmanship Trophy. The Army made him a cook and assigned him to the General’s Mess. He was a proud and patriotic American and was touched when he was able to participate in the “Honor Flight” of service veterans in 2018.

After serving in the Army, Jerry married his high school sweetheart Ann Poe in 1959, and the two shared a truly great love over 46 years of wedded bliss.  Jerry was an avid outdoorsman, enjoying fishing, hunting, camping, hiking, sailing, and photography.

In 1976, the strong gravity of family and the hills of southern Indiana pulled Jerry and family back to the Midwest where he became a professor of biology at the University of Evansville.  At UE, he was passionate about teaching and working with students.  He had formal assignments as a freshman advisor, but he always went WAY over and above his normal advising duties.  He really cared about these young people, many of whom were away from home for the first time and still trying to figure out not only what they wanted to do with their careers, but who they wanted to be.  He gave them his time.  He gave them his wisdom.  He gave them his love.  The students reciprocated his love as witnessed by the hundreds of letters, notes, emails, and phone calls he received from current and former students thanking him for his personal touch and care. He was nominated for the Outstanding Teacher Award in 18 of the 27 years he taught at UE, and he won the award in 1999. Of all the formal accolades he received in his career, this was his most prized, but he cherished every heartfelt letter from former students every bit as much as the plaque on his wall.

Dr. Dale Edwards, Professor of Biology and the department chair, stated, “Professor Jerry Seng was a member of the Department of Biology for 27 years, arriving in the fall of 1976 and retiring in the spring 2003.  He taught general biology, genetics, and developmental biology.  Dr. Seng was a gifted and passionate teacher, who truly loved and nurtured his students. His commitment to teaching and relationship-building was cherished by his students.  Dr. Seng won the Outstanding Teacher Award in 1999.  In recognition of his exceptional contributions to teaching and mentoring students during his career at UE, the biology department has fittingly created the Jerry T. Seng Freshmen Biology Award in his honor.”

He was preceded in death by his first wife Ann, his parents Carl and Marcella (Bohnert) Seng, and his brother Robert.  He is survived by wife Kathleen (Boink), children Kris (and Dave) McGill of Newburgh, Phil and Laura Seng of South Bend, Indiana, and Rebecca (and Mike) Fitzmaurice of Granger, Indiana. Grandchildren: Nathan (and Stephanie) McGill, Miriam (and Brian) Reilly, Rachael McGill, Aaron (and Hayley) Seng, Justin Seng, Jenny (and Antonio) Marchi, John Paul Fitzmaurice, and Gregory Fitzmaurice. Great-grandchildren: Gianna-Marie, Felicity, Ambrose, Elizabeth, and Joseph Seng; Aria and Crystal McGill; Mariella and Simeon Marchi.

Visitation will be held Sunday, October 24, 2021, from 2:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at Ziemer Funeral Home East Chapel, 800 S. Hebron Ave.  Funeral service will begin at 9:30 a.m. Monday, October 25, 2021, at the funeral home and continue with a traditional Latin Requiem Mass at 10:00 a.m. at Saint Mary Catholic Church, 613 Cherry St., Evansville.

* Cardona wins third consecutive MVC freshman award

For the third time in as many weeks, University of Evansville’s Giulia Cardona has been named the Missouri Valley Conference Freshman of the Week.

While the University of Evansville played just one match this week, Cardona continued to rack up some of the top numbers in the nation, accumulating a mind boggling 24.0 points in a 3-set win over Indiana State on Saturday.  In the win over the Sycamores, Cardona recorded 17 kills, 7 service aces and 4 digs.  Cardona’s 17 kills came in 32 attempts with her hitting .375 in the contest. 

Her 7 aces was a career-high and marked the most in a match for Evansville since 2006.  She was the first MVC player to have 7 aces in a match since 2019 (Carly Nicholson – Illinois State – vs. Little Rock – 9/6/19) and the first to do so versus an MVC opponent since 2009 (Chelsea Lauersdorf – Drake – vs. Indiana State – 10/23/09).  Even more impressive – she was the first in the Valley to have 7 aces against a league foe in three sets since Nov. 3, 2007 (Jennifer Berwanger – SIU – at Drake).  Cardona is 16th in the NCAA in aces and second among freshmen.

Cardona becomes the first to win three freshman awards in a row since Illinois State’s Stef Jankiewicz did so in 2017.

A huge 3-match home stretch is up next for Evansville starting on Friday with a 6 p.m. contest against Valparaiso.  UE welcomes MVC leader Loyola on Saturday at 4 p.m. before hosting Southern Illinois at 6 p.m. on Monday, November 1.

* UE golf announces "The Hamilton" fundraiser

On Saturday, November 13, the University of Evansville golf program will host its first-annual fundraiser – “The Hamilton”.

Pricing is $500 per team or $125 for an individual.  Hole sponsorships are $100 while donations are welcome.
