  • Fueling Faculty Who Discover, Teach, and Mentor: Support for endowed chairs and professorships, academic department funds, and student/faculty research.

Gifts can be made toward Forward >> at any time by visiting Updates on the amount gifted toward the comprehensive campaign will also be provided on the same webpage. All gifts will create a lasting impact on the University and support Aces for many years to come.

A video of the event was made and will be shared at a later date. Please join us to wish them well in their retirement.



Dr. Sharon Gieselmann
Associate Professor of Education/Department Chair

Dr. Sharon Gieselmann is an associate professor in the School of Education.  Prior to coming to the University of Evansville, she served as an elementary school principal, elementary school teacher, and staff developer.  She also provided professional development to schools in the south and midwest as a literacy coach and area manager for The McGraw-Hill Companies.  Dr. Gieselmann earned a bachelor's degree in Political Science from the University of Southern Indiana, a master's degree in education with an emphasis in Elementary Education from the University of Illinois at Chicago, and a Ph.D. in Educational Leadership from the University of Louisville.  She also has a teaching endorsement in Gifted Education and school administrative credentials from Western Kentucky University.  She was the recipient of the Dean’s Award for Excellence in Teaching and is listed on the School of Education’s Honor Wall for exemplary contributions to the field of education.

Dr. Gieselmann’s research interests include social justice issues in public schools. Her work has been shared at conferences in Moscow, Russia, Paris, France, and Brighton, United Kingdom.  Dr. Gieselmann’s most recent work is included in two books for aspiring administrators in university preparation programs, Quandaries of the Small-District Superintendency and Snapshots of School Leadership in the 21st Century; Perils and Promises of Leading for Social Justice, School Improvement, and Democratic Community.

Since becoming the department chair, the School of Education team has increased enrollment in the Transition to Teaching program, added the Accelerated Elementary Education second degree program, and an Early Start Education Certificate program for high school students.  The department has completed successful Pep and Vim campaigns annually to provide new furniture for education classrooms, updated the Tapley Education Center, and purchased Promethean Boards to provide students with improved resources.  The Department has secured over $1 million dollars in grants focusing on STEM activities, Project Lead the Way initiatives, Google Workspace PD for almost 800 educators, and tutoring to help K-12 students with academic challenges associated with Covid.

Dr. Rodd has been in six different departments since he began at the University (Biology, PE, Human Kinetics, Exercise Science, Public Health, and Health Sciences).  During his early years in the current department, he developed the core of the Exercise Science major as it exists now.  He was very active and involved in many different areas of the university including Undergraduate Research, Faculty Governance (being a member of almost every elected faculty senate committee at some point in his career), and twelve years on Faculty Senate and twice Faculty Senate Chair.  His retirement will allow him to spend more time with his beautiful wife, Barbara, and his needy canine companion, Mickey.  His son, Alex, graduated from UE with a degree in Athletic Training and a Doctor of Physical Therapy, and his daughter, Olivia, is scheduled to graduate from UE with a degree in Education.

Kiel lowered his tally by six strokes from the first to the second round at the Country Club of Paducah.  His total score of 154 is 26th overall and third on the Purple Aces squad.  Leading the UE contingent after 36 holes is the duo of Carson Parker and Caleb Wassmer.  Parker followed up his opening round 76 with a 77 while Wassmer finished today with a 78 following a 75 a day ago.  Both are tied for 21st with scores of 153.

Following Kiel in the order is Isaac Rohleder.  He made the largest jump for the Aces, dropping his score from an 85 to a 76 on Monday.  His 161 is tied for 36th.  Dallas Koth also made a nice leap.  His second-round score of 78 was seven better than his first-round score. 

Southern Illinois has a firm grasp in the team standings, pacing Valparaiso by 17 strokes going into the final 18 holes on Tuesday.  SIU posted a 285 in round two and stand with a 580.  Valpo is in second with a 597 while Illinois State and Drake are tied for third with a 601.

Max Kreikemeier of Missouri State holds the individual lead.  One of the lowest rounds in championship history saw him card a 5-under 67 to jump in front.  His 141 is three ahead of Tom Cleaton of the Salukis.ß
