* Institute for Public Health Seeking Applications for the Scholar Program

The Institute for Public Health is now seeking applications for the Scholar Program. The Scholar Program provides a supportive infrastructure for meaningful physical and virtual collaborative exchanges. A critical part of the program’s success is not relying on a one-size-fits-all approach. We are committed to a portfolio of strategies to suit scholars from across the university and community in various disciplines, at different stages in their careers, and with distinctive pathways toward success. We want to work with scholars to spark productive collaborations, remove barriers to collaboration, and make it easier for scholars to broaden their networks for their public health research, practice, advocacy, and teaching activities. Scholars should be interested in collaborating with other disciplines to help expand their own areas, refine research questions, enhance development of public health interventions, improve practice delivery, enrich teaching, etc. Scholars will be awarded $750 to support their proposed project.

There are three categories where individuals may apply to become a scholar:
Faculty scholar is for University of Evansville faculty
Student scholar is for University of Evansville students (undergraduate or graduate)
Community scholar is for Evansville community members

Benefits of Being a Scholar:
Help connecting one another, or to useful resources and networks, to solve public health challenges
Assistance planning and implementing unique scholar-driven activities related to public health practice, research, education, and advocacy
Support from the Institute’s communication infrastructure to disseminate news about scholars’ public health work through multiple channels including websites, email newsletter, social media, or other tailored approaches
Comprehensive communications about public health events and opportunities

If you are interested in applying for the Scholar Program, please contact Dr. Payal Patel-Dovlatabadi at or 812-488-2210. Deadline to apply is 11/11.

* UE Women's Soccer Travels To UIC On Thursday Night

The University of Evansville women’s soccer team will travel north to Chicago, Illinois on Thursday night to take on Missouri Valley Conference newcomer UIC.  The Purple Aces and Flames will kick-off at 6:05 p.m. at Flames Field in a match that can be seen live on ESPN+.

The match-up will mark the first-ever meeting between the two women’s soccer programs.  It will also be a key match standings-wise for both teams, with the MVC Tournament coming up in three weeks.  UIC currently sits in a four-team tie for sixth-place in the Valley standings with five points (1-5-4 overall, 1-1-2 MVC).  Evansville, meanwhile, sits in tenth place with two points (1-6-4 overall, 0-3-2), but a win on Thursday would tie the two sides in the standings, with the potential to move UE into eighth in the league standings.  Only the top eight teams will advance on to the conference tournament beginning on October 27.

Evansville will be trying to bounce back from a heartbreaking 2-1 loss to Southern Illinois on Sunday, in which the Salukis scored in the 89th minute to earn the victory.  UE fifth-year forward Emily Ormson (Folsom, Calif./Vista del Lago) scored the Aces’ lone goal on the afternoon to move into a tie for the league-lead in goals with four.  Ormson also leads all of Division I college soccer (both men’s and women’s) in shot accuracy this year, as she has put 80.8 percent of her shots on target this year (21 of 26).

UIC, meanwhile, played to a 1-1 draw at Murray State on Sunday.  Freshman midfielder Sophia Jaime scored in the 82nd minute to help the Flames earn a point on the road against the Racers.  Five different Flames have scored one goal each this year, as no UIC player has scored multiple goals this year.  Redshirt sophomore Lauren Keiser has posted a 1.13 goals-against average in nine matches played to lead the way in goal for the Flames.

* Vidizzoni helps Aces secure road result with fourth clean sheet

Facing nine shots on the night, graduate goalkeeper Alex Vidizzoni helped lead the University of Evansville men's soccer team to a point on the road in Missouri Valley Conference action in a 0-0 draw with Belmont in Nashville on Wednesday night.

"It's a good result in conference play for us on the road. I think we were unfortunate not to get a goal in the first half, but created chances and were on top of the game and I think were able to dictate the pace," said Aces head men's soccer coach Marshall Ray. " The second half, they came out with a little more energy and put us under some pressure. Belmont created a few good chances, but our guys were organized and did a good job man marking on set pieces and didn't allow any goals and that's something we've been working on and something we need to continue to get better at."

Vidizzoni notched his fourth clean sheet of the season in the draw, facing nine total shots, including six on frame, saving all six. Offensively, Evansville bested the Bruins by one, recording 10 shots with senior Carlos Barcia leading the UE contingent with four shots on the evening. Also recording multiple shots were sophomore Nacho Diaz with three and fellow sophomore Jose Vivas with a pair.

Evansville's attack got its first opportunity inside the opening minute with Barcia launching a shot that missed over the top. The first chance on goal from UE came in the ninth minute as junior Kai Phillip slipped a well-placed through ball to Diaz, who's attempt from an acute angle was saved. Positioning was key on the night for Vidizzoni, who again found himself placed well for a Belmont attempt late in the opening half, making the save as the match trickled into the half in a scoreless lock.

The second half opened relatively quietly with the Aces and Bruins combining for just one shot each in the first 20 minutes of the half, both putting an attempt on goal, but both seeing it subsequently saved.

One of the highlights of the night came by the way of freshman defender Marc Vila. Vila came into the match having played just one minute this season against UIW and made his first collegiate start, playing all 90 minutes in the shutout. Vila nearly won the match for Evansville in the final 10 minutes, launching a volley towards goal that just missed over the bar.

"I think the last 10 or 15 minutes we created some opportunities. Marc (Vila) came in this evening and played a great match for us and stepped-up after not playing many minutes this year and almost got the winner late for us," said Ray on freshman Marc Vila.

In the final five minutes, Belmont generated a late chance on a cross into the box that was headed from close range, but Vidizzoni was in position to make the save as Evansville captured the point on the road in the 0-0 draw.

"Now we've got to get ready for a tough Bradley team at home on Sunday and look forward to getting into that match and continuing in The Valley," said Ray.

The Aces return to Arad McCutcan Stadium on Sunday against MVC foe Bradley with kick-off at 2 PM in Evansville.
