* New Stationery Ordering Process

Marketing and Communications is launching a new stationery ordering system called Marcom on March 5 for placing orders for business cards, letterhead, envelopes, and more. The system will link from the same marketing request form or you can access the Marcom website directly. Once you land on the page, click on “Register New User” and create a username and password.

Once you are granted access, you will then login and create a profile for ordering.

The system is much like any online ordering system, but the new site will allow you to see a proof real-time and immediately approve the design and information. We are hopeful this new system will be a seamless transition and allow for expediting of orders.

If you have questions regarding or would like additional training, please contact Holly Smith at hh98@evansville.edu.

Supplemental Pay Request Forms for Payroll will now be accepted electronically. The link to the new electronic form and instructions can be found on the Accounting and Audit page on the UE portal.

Please note the requirements for approvals indicated on the form and attach any supporting documents. Approvals can be made through Microsoft Teams or an automated email by clicking “Approved” and then “Submit”. The link to managing approvals in Microsoft Teams can also be found on the Accounting and Audit page on the UE portal.

Deadlines: Approved Supplemental Pay Request Forms must be received by 12:00 noon on the Friday of a non-pay week to be included in the next payroll processing. Incomplete forms or incorrect information will delay processing.

COVID-19 Corner

* Updates to Mask/Face Covering Policy

On March 2, the Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) changed Vanderburgh County’s advisory status to yellow on its statewide COVID-19 map. Current guidelines state that if all the relevant metrics remain below the targets for two weeks after this date, mask restrictions will be lifted. Due to the travel of many students for spring break, the University will extend this timeline and will lift the mask mandate beginning Monday, March 21

With the mask mandate lifted, masks or face coverings will not be required on campus, but individuals can make a personal choice to continue wearing masks or face coverings. 

Classrooms/Departments
Individual departments and administrative units may require masks in their private offices and departmental/administrative spaces. 

Faculty may choose to require masks in their instructional spaces (i.e. classrooms and labs) and during research activities. Faculty who choose this option should communicate information to students before March 21 and inform Catie Taylor in the Office of Admission of visitor restrictions. 

Signs may be placed in these and other areas indicating that masks or face coverings are required. Signs may be requested through the Office of Publications.  

Mask Mandate Reinstitution
If any of the following conditions are met, the mask mandate will be reinstituted and will remain in place until all three metrics are below the targets for two consecutive weeks: 
1. The ISDH alert status for Vanderburgh County rises to a status of orange or red
2. More than 20 active cases of COVID-19 on campus
3. A decrease in the campus vaccination rate to lower than 80%

Continued Random Testing
The Random COVID-19 Testing Program will continue for those who are unvaccinated. The Coronavirus Task Force will continue to look at metrics to determine when this program will be discontinued. 

 
* Outdoor Event Guidelines Update

Outdoor events may operate at full capacity and without attendance maximums. It is expected of event hosts and organization leaders to continue to be mindful of social distancing and other best practices at events such as hand sanitizing availability. In event settings, a 6-foot distancing guideline is still used when contact tracing is needed.

Info You Should Know

* Off-campus login to library resources being updated

During spring break, the library will update and modernize the login process for off-campus access to library resources. Currently, a user’s last name and a barcode number (added to the campus ID at the Information Desk) are used to provide access. This system will be modernized to use the same login as WebMail and the MyUE Campus Portal. This will make online access more convenient for all library users and will eliminate the need to barcode campus IDs to enable off-campus access.

For on-campus access to database resources, nothing will change. (Our “campus” consists of the main campus, Stone Family Center for Health Sciences, and the Harlaxton campus, all of which are currently provided access using campus network IP ranges that the library provides to database vendors.

Beginning next week (at the latest March 11), when off-campus users select a database on the

Databases by Name page (https://www.evansville.edu/libraries/databasesByName.cfm)

Or Databases by Subject page (https://www.evansville.edu/libraries/databasesBySubject.cfm)

they will be prompted to login using the new method.

Reminder: only current students, faculty, and staff may access the library’s licensed resources from off-campus and remote locations due to contractual “Terms of Use.”

The library wishes to express its thanks to OTS staff who assisted with the project by creating a process which will allow this enhanced form of access to function--Bob Szurgot, Robert Birkle, and Josh Norrick.

If you have questions or need help as the transition progresses, please email library@evansville.edu.

Athletics

* UE falls to Valpo in Arch Madness opener

Fifth-year players Noah Frederking and Evan Kuhlman recorded 13 points apiece in Thursday’s Arch Madness game that saw the University of Evansville men’s basketball team fall to Valparaiso by a final of 81-59 inside the Enterprise Center.

Freshman Blake Sisley matched the team-high with 13 tallies while Shamar Givance finished the night with 10 for the Purple Aces.  Frederking led the team with six rebounds while Givance dished out a game-high six assists.  Valparaiso was led by 18-point efforts from Kobe King and Sheldon Edwards. 

“Valpo moved the ball very well in the first half and made us pay for not getting to the shooters,” UE head coach Todd Lickliter said after the contest.   “To our guys credit, we came out in the second half and cut the deficit to four.  It was one of those games that we did not have enough to make the run.”

After Valparaiso jumped out to an 8-2 lead, Noah Frederking knocked down a triple to make it a 3-point game.  The Beacons knocked down their first four outside attempts to take a 16-7 advantage at the first media time out of the night.  At the 9:05 mark, the Valpo lead reached its highest of the half at 28-13 on a dunk by Ben Krikke.

Evansville responded with an 11-5 stretch that cut the gap down to nine points with Shamar Givance and Blaise Beauchamp supplying 3-pointers.  Over the last six minutes of the period, the Beacons added a pair to the lead and took a 43-32 advantage into the break. 

Blake Sisley opened the second half with a hook shot to mark the start of a 7-0 UE run, which chopped the VU lead to just four points.  Evan Kuhlman knocked down a 3-pointer before Givance forced a steal and turned it into another field goal to make it a 43-39 game just over two minutes into the final half.

Six in a row from Valparaiso pushed their lead back to 10 and they would stretch it out to 13 points when a Thomas Kithier layup made it a 65-52 game with 7:15 remaining.  Four minutes later, Valpo’s 10th triple of the game gave them their largest lead at 16 points (73-57) before finishing the evening with the 81-59 victory.

Valparaiso shot 58.3% on the night with the Aces finishing at 44.2%.  The Beacons completed the game with a 31-20 edge on the boards. 

Jawaun Newton made his return to the floor after missing the last eight games and played seven minutes.  He hit a free throw and grabbed a rebound.

 
* UE's Menkhaus, Santos Lopez Tie 50 Free School Record At MAC Championships

University of Evansville senior Oskar Menkhaus (Davidson, N.C./William A. Hough) and freshman Daniel Santos Lopez (Madrid, Spain) each tied the school record in the 50-yard Freestyle event on Thursday, with Santos Lopez reaching the mark twice, at the 2022 Mid-American Conference Championships in Carbondale, Illinois.

Menkhaus tied Dave Nel’s 2001 school record in the 50 Free with time of 20.51 in the preliminary round on Thursday afternoon.  Santos Lopez tied the mark himself in a swim-off for place at the end of the prelim swims.  Santos Lopez then came back to tie the 50 Free mark again as the lead leg of the 200-yard Freestyle Relay.  Nel’s record is the third-oldest men’s swimming record currently at UE.

“Today was a good day for the team,” said UE head swimming coach Stuart Wilson.  “Obviously, having a three-way tie for one of the oldest school records is pretty special.  But, Jackson (Caudill) started off the night with a great 500 Free by getting his best time, and the IM’ers did a good job as well.

“All in all, it was a very good day to build on.”

Caudill opened Thursday night’s finals with a 500-yard Freestyle time of 4:32.77, the third-fastest time in school history, to place third in the “B Finals.”  Freshman Patrik Vilbergsson (Kopavogur, Iceland) also placed eighth in the “A Finals” in the 500-yard Freestyle, after ranking fourth-fastest in school history with a time of 4:33.07 in the prelims.

Sophomore Alon Baer (Gesher Haziv, Israel), freshman Carlos Souto Vilas (A Coruna, Spain), and senior Zeke Metz (Topeka, Kan./Seaman) then posted three of the top five times in UE history in the 200-yard IM, as they finished with marks of 1:52.07, 1:52.08, and 1:52.10, respectively, in the “B Finals.” 

The MAC Championships will continue Friday morning at 10:30 a.m. with preliminary swims in the 100-yard Butterfly, 100-yard Breaststroke, 100-yard Backstroke, 200-yard Freestyle, and the 400 IM.  The finals in those events will be contested at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, along with the 400-yard Medley Relay.

 
* Impressive effort for Aces ends in overtime loss to Drake

Continuing its string of close contests, the University of Evansville women's basketball team took Drake to overtime before falling, 80-71, on Thursday evening inside Meeks Family Fieldhouse in Evansville.

There's on fire and then there's junior Abby Feit on Thursday night. Feit recorded a game-high 28 points, falling just one point shy of tying her career high, hitting a career-best six three-pointers. Feit also finished with 11 boards for her 12th double-double of the season. Junior Je'Naiya Davis joined Feit in double-figures, tallying 19 points to go along with seven boards. For the Bulldogs, Grace Berg eclipsed the 20-point mark and Megan Meyer also reached double-figures with 17 points.

Perserverence is a trait the Aces have built on all season and it paid off against the Bulldogs. Evansville trailed by as many as 12 late in the first quarter before ultimately heading into the second period down 20-9. It was still a nine-point deficit at the half, but as Evansville has done on multiple occasions this season, the Aces turned-it around in the second half.

A quick 8-2 run out of the break in just over two minutes got Evansville within a possession of the Bulldogs in the third, but it took further work to cut even further into Drake's advantage. Pushing to get even closer, Evansville utilized an 8-0 run minutes later to not only narrow the Bulldogs' lead, but take a one-point lead at 48-47 with 4:03 left in the quarter. Both sides tussled back and forth over the final four minutes of the period with a last second layup from Davis grabbing a one-point lead for the Aces heading into the fourth.

Drake opened the fourth with a 6-0 run, grabbing a five-point lead, but Evansville answered with a 5-0 run of its own to tie the game at 58. There were four lead changes and four ties in the quarter with a split pair of free throws from Celine Dupont securing the final tie of the period with 1:30 remaining. With plenty of opportunities for either side over the final 90 seconds, neither side could find the basket as the contest ticked into overtime.

After going just 5-20 from three during the 40 minutes of regulation, the shots began to fall from beyond the arc in overtime. Drake hit three triples in the extra five minutes and Evansville's offense could not hit at the rate it did in regulation as the Bulldogs earned the 80-71 win.

Evansville wraps-up the regular season on Saturday, hosting Northern Iowa inside Meeks Family Fieldhouse for a 1 PM tip.
