A cider toast to fall sports, Regent Behling, teaching scholars
Travel, a regent visit, fall sports and teaching scholarship take center stage.
Tuesday, Oct. 23, 2012
Beginning today, I am frequently on the road for the better part of two weeks; on my plate are visits with alumni in the Twin Cities, a joint gathering in Madison with the state public and private university leaderships along with a System meeting, and a trip to AASCU at which time I will be an invited panel participant.
Regent John Behling will join us November 13 on campus. His schedule is designed to give him a broad overview of the activity at UW-Superior - from distance learning to the liberal arts. Should you see him around and about campus, please extend a warm Yellowjacket welcome.
You might have noticed that two campaigns are under way. One is our Faculty and Staff Campaign; the other is for the United Way, a well-known beneficial cause for the enhancement of our community.
The Fall sports seasons are winding down with women's soccer and volleyball having already played their final home matches. Men's soccer, getting back into the win column on Saturday against Ripon, has one more home match on Halloween with Finlandia. However, before then, there is a match with Twin Ports-rival St. Scholastica at Duluth East High School on Wednesday at 6:30. Winter sports are kicking off already with the basketball teams entertaining fans and students at a great 'Jacket Jam event last Friday. The men's and women's hockey teams open their seasons this weekend. The women are on the road at Hamline, and the men open the season with a pair of games against St. Scholastica. The puck drops at 7:05 p.m. each night at Wessman Arena. Last but not least, good luck to the men's and women's cross country teams in the conference meet this weekend!
Today was the "Let's Celebrate Scholarship and SoTL (Scholarship of Teaching and Learning) Reception. Congratulations to our Jumpstart scholars from Summer 2012, last year's Wisconsin Teaching Fellow Shevaun Stocker and Scholar Shin-Ping Tucker, and this year's OPID/WTFS Fellow Lois Veenhoven Guderian and Scholar Monica Roth Day. Also, congratulations go to Joel Sipress for his SoTL national teaching award!
It was a drizzly, grey day on the way to the Cities. I think the apple cider and chili season is upon us!
