4) Adjust to environmental and walking surface conditions
5) Pay attention to “Wet Floor” warning signs to warn of known hazards
6) Practice Good Housekeeping
7) Keep walkways and hallways free of debris, clutter and obstacles
8) Only carry items that allow you to see clearly where you are going
9) Use handrails when going up or down stairs and not skip steps

* UE Launches "Forward >>," a $125 Million Comprehensive Campaign

On Saturday, April 23, the University of Evansville launched Forward >>, the comprehensive campaign dedicated to raising $125 million and investing in three major priorities for the campus. UE kicked off the multi-year project with a gala on campus, during which it was announced that more than $76 million has already been gifted toward the campaign.

“At UE, we have fostered a culture among our students to create positive change – not in 10 years, not after graduation, but now,” said Christopher M. Pietruszkiewicz, president of the University. “This campaign takes that culture to a new level. With this support, we can create a great impact across every facet of our campus."

Young adults must be equipped with the knowledge and skills to meet the demands of a rapidly evolving workforce. UE has adopted a forward-thinking approach to accommodate future generations of Aces, and the campaign will expand learning opportunities and experiences prior to graduation. The three pillars of Forward >> are listed here. More detailed information can be found at forward.evansville.edu as well as the press release that will be made public.

  • Powering a Transformational, Accessible Education: Support for endowed scholarships; the Center for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion; the new Wellness and Recreation Center, and Carson Center revitalization.
  • Bringing Academics to Life: Support for the Center for Innovation & Change, updates and improvements to Wallace B. Graves Hall, Engineering Project Building, and the Harlaxton study abroad experience.
  • 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 forward.evansville.edu. 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.

* UE Track & Field To Return To Terre Haute Saturday For Sycamore Open

One week after competing at Indiana State’s Gibson Invitational, the University of Evansville track and field teams will return to Terre Haute to take part in the Sycamore Open at the Gibson Track & Field Complex.  The one-day meet will take place on Saturday, with field events starting at 10 a.m. central time and track events beginning at noon central time.

Evansville had a successful trip to Terre Haute last weekend, as the Purple Aces broke three school records and set 23 personal-best marks in the three-day Gibson Invitational.  Senior Mike Boots (Evansville, Ind./Mater Dei) broke a 46-year-old record in the shot put event with a throw of 15.34 meters, while junior thrower Zach Dove (Princeton, Ind./Princeton Community) broke the school mark in the hammer throw for the third-straight meet with a toss of 49.50 meters.  Senior Joey Rucinski (Ft. Wayne, Ind./Concordia Lutheran) also made history in the decathlon event, posting a school-record score of 5,906 points to win the event.

“It was good to see a lot of people step up last week and post some more PRs, as we are beginning to close in on the conference meet in a couple of weeks,” said UE head coach Don Walters.  “This meet on Saturday is our final tune-up for the conference meet, so hopefully, we can go out and set some more PRs and be in a real good place going into the Valley Championships in a few weeks.”

UE’s sprinters were able to take advantage of a strong wind last weekend to post some of their fastest times ever on the track, with sophomore Geordan Blades (10.64 – 100, 21.97 - 200) and junior Giovanni Purser (10.66 - 100) on the men’s side and freshman Kara Yunker (13.10 – 100, 27.46 - 200) and senior Skylar Tucker (26.57 – 200) on the women’s side posting personal-best times in the 100- and 200-meter dashes.  Wind could also play a factor on Saturday, with southerly winds expected between 10 and 15 miles-per-hour, with gusts as high as 30.

As a team, Evansville placed fifth out of 11 schools on the men’s side and sixth out of nine schools on the women’s side at the Gibson Invitational.  UE should see good competition at the Sycamore Open this weekend, with the likes of Indiana State, Bradley, Butler, IUPUI, Chicago State, Eastern Illinois and Saint Louis University expected to send competitors from the Division I ranks to the meet.
