Higher Ed Review Team Will Visit UND

The "Partners for Quality -- What's Next?: A Bush Grant Review of Higher
Education in North Dakota" team visit will take place at UND between 8 and 11
a.m. Monday, Nov. 18.  The team will meet with faculty, administrators, staff
and students.

This "external review of higher education in North Dakota" involves an
independent panel charged with gathering facts and information to develop a
report which will include recommendations to the State Board that will "serve
as a blueprint for action for higher education over the next ten years."  The
review also coincides with North Dakota state law which requires the Board to
prepare a six-year plan in the next year and to present it to the Legislature
by the fall of 1997.

Members of the review panel are Dennis Jones, president of the National Center
for Higher Education Management Systems (NCHEMS) in Boulder, Co.; Elaine
El-Khawas, vice president for Policy Analysis and Research for the American
Council on Education in Washington, D.C.; E.K. Fretwell, chancellor emeritus
of the University of North Carolina; Bruce Furness, mayor of Fargo; Patricia
Gumport, executive director of the National Center for Postsecondary
Improvement at Stanford University; and Joe Satrom of Bismarck, N.D., former
state senator and now head of the North Dakota Chapter of the Nature
Conservancy.  Project Coordinator is Bob Christman.

The UND schedule will begin with a combined meeting of the vice presidents and
deans at 8 a.m. in the Edna Twamley Room, to be followed at 8:45 a.m. with a
meeting in 305 Twamley Hall with faculty and student members of the Senate
Executive Committee, the University Planning Council, and the Restructuring
and Reallocation Committee.  The Bush Panel will break into two groups at 9:30
a.m. for meetings with student leaders in the Edna Twamley Room and with unit
directors designated by the vice presidents, in 305 Twamley Hall.  The panel
will come together again at 10:15 a.m. to meet with President Baker.  At 11
a.m., the panel moves into the community for meetings with legislators and
citizens. -- Dave Vorland, Assistant to the President.

Programs at Harvard University and a national leader in progressive education
and alternative assessment. He is well known as the founder of the New School
of Behavioral Studies at UND in the 1960s. Lloyd Omdahl, the former Lieutenant
Governor for the State of North Dakota, will also be present for discussion.
He will share challenging and interesting experiences from his background in
the political arena and as a faculty member within the North Dakota University
System.

The conference is free of charge, even the meals are free. Friday dinner,
Saturday continental breakfast and lunch will be provided. Registration can be
taken over the telephone by calling 7-2663 or use the toll-free number, 1-800-342-8230.

Open House Will Feature Aurora Project

An open house at UND Thursday, Nov. 14, will feature a model of the proposed
Aurora Events Center and the opportunity to visit informally with city
officials.  Scheduled from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Memorial Union River Valley
Room, the event will include factsheets and other displays.  Those in
attendance will have an opportunity to interact with city officials and
members of the Aurora project team, as well as have their questions answered. 
On Tuesday, Dec. 3, voters in Grand Forks will let City council members know
if it is acceptable to spend more than $49 million for the Aurora without
raising the sales tax already dedicated to the project.  This would ensure
that both an arena and convention center would be built. -- Jan Orvik, Editor,
for Christi Stonecipher, Project Coordinator, Aurora Events Center.

Nov. 21-22 Conference Explores Educational Applications                   Of
Computer-Based Technologies

Seeking to build meaningful curricular experiences for students,
technical/community college and university faculty have turned to computer-based technologies.  Many faculty, however, are waiting to see how
applications have actually been used (and how successful they have been)
before they take on the significant tasks of learning to use new computer-based tools and developing computer-based curricular experiences.

The topic of "Building an Educational Experience Through Applications of
Computer-Based Technologies" will be explored at a conference to be presented
Nov. 21-22 in St. Paul, Minn., by the University of Wisconsin-Stout.  The
conference site is the Radisson Hotel St. Paul at 11 East Kellogg Boulevard. 
Thirty concurrent experiential presentations in six groupings will be provided
by college and university faculty.  The opening keynote speaker will be Dr.
James Morrison, Professor of Educational Leadership at the University of North
Carolina, Chapel Hill, and editor of "On the Horizon."  He is developing two
online monographs dealing with the use of technology in the development of
online courses.  Dr. Randall Bass, Director of the Center for Electronic
Projects in American Culture Studies, also will present a keynote address. 
Bass has numerous online credentials, including work on Project FUTURE
(Faculty Use of Technology:  Understanding Roles and Evaluation) for the
American Association for Higher Education.

The $180 early registration (before Oct. 21, 1996) conference fee includes all
breaks, lunch on Thursday, exhibits pass, and materials.  More information
about registration, speakers, presentations, agenda and location can be
obtained from the conference Web site:

UNIVERSITY SENATE

University Senate Report

University Senate conducted its regular monthly meeting Nov. 7 with Vice Chair
Wayne Swisher (Communication Sciences and Disorders) presiding. Fifty-five of
the current 79 Senate members attended. Consideration of three items on
changes in academic procedures and regulations occupied most of the routine
meeting, which was adjourned at 5:04 p.m. after a 4:07 p.m. call to order.
Reports on proceedings follow.

New Undergraduate Non-Degree   
Admission Status Approved             
To assist certain kinds of new students who want to register at UND but who
lack time to complete regular entrance procedures first, a new undergraduate
non-degree admission status was approved by University Senate at its Nov. 7
meeting. The new definition allows completion of up to 12 semester hours of
credit without admission procedures. It will help students who do not
initially have regular degree-seeking plans to take courses without the formal
admission process, including UND employees, whose benefits include
tuition-waiver enrollment in one course each semester.

After 12 semester credit hours have been completed under the new status,
students must complete regular admission procedures to continue enrolling in
courses. Recommended to Senate by its Admissions Committee, the official
description of the new status is:

"Undergraduate Non-Degree Admission.  Students who graduated from high school
prior to 1993 and are deferring regular admission while they enroll in a
course(s) for purposes other than the completion of a degree may enroll as
Undergraduate Non-Degree students. Students enrolling with this status are not
eligible for federal financial aid and may not exceed a total of twelve
semester hours of credit as Undergraduate Non-Degree students. Enrollment in
courses beyond twelve semester credits will be contingent upon Regular
Admission after satisfying all entrance requirements." The 1993 date was
included because of a State Board of Higher Education regulation that those
graduating since then must meet high school core course requirements, even
though other admission requirements are suspended for the first 12 hours of
course work under the new category.


Academic Grievance Filing Deadline,
Recording Procedures Changes OK'd
The time frame for filing academic grievances and the way proceedings about
them will be maintained were made more specific through a change in the
Academic Concerns section (Section 3-2-B. 1 & 2) of the Code of Student Life
that was approved by University Senate at its Nov. 7 meeting.
Inserted in the first part of that section was the sentence, "Unless a school
or college has specified a shorter time, a student must initiate a grievance
within 120 calendar days from the recording of the final grade (including an
 Incomplete') in the course in which the grievance arose." Establishment of
the deadline, proposed by the Student Academic Standards Committee, is in
response to students who sometimes wait up to two years before filing a
grievance, only to find that the instructor and/or course records are no
longer available.

Further changes in the academic grievance filing statement in the Code of
Student Life are those that specify that proceedings be tape recorded, that a
decision deadline that is not to exceed 20 school days can go beyond that
"upon agreement of the parties or the inability of the committee to make a
quorum" (to cover possible absences of committee members during summer), and
that "All submitted documents will be made a permanent part of the student's
educational record." The latter addition was approved to satisfy concerns
about status and retention of such materials in light of the removal of a
reference to "document" when the tape recording requirement was inserted in
the statement.

Deadlines For S/U Grading, Course Audit 
Changes, Dropping Courses Now Coincide
A months-old proposal by a former student member of University Senate but
never acted upon for lack of time was considered such a sensible idea that it
was revived and approved at the Nov. 7 meeting. The deadline for changing a
course to or from Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory grading and to or from audit
will now be the same as for dropping a course.

The proposal was originally placed on the Senate agenda last April by then
Graduate School Senator Robert Tarquinio, but time prevented consideration.
Admissions and Records Director Alice Poehls said it made such good sense that
Senate's Academic Policies Committee re-introduced it. She noted that
previously, the earlier deadlines for changing courses to or from S/U and for
changing to or from audit status than the deadline for dropping courses
prevented students from considering those other options when the final
deadline for dropping arrived. 

The effect often was that students would drop a course because the earlier
deadlines had passed for changes that would have allowed consideration for one
or the other of the two forms of retention, resulting in loss of investment of
time and money, Poehls explained. Now, a possible decrease in the number of
students who might drop courses because of the extended S/U and audit option
deadlines could also lower the number of courses being repeated, she said.
Before, the deadlines for changing to or from S/U and to or from audit were
about one-third of the way into a semester or term. Now they will be about at
the two-thirds point, the same as the course drop deadline.

Other Senate Business
Other business at the Nov. 7 University Senate meeting included the following:

Carla Hess (Communication Sciences & Disorders) announced that the formal,
written report of the Restructuring and Reallocation Committee of which she is
chair will be presented to Senate in December, at which time Senate may
consider recommendations and forward responses back to the R & R Committee
(the report might be attached to the December Senate agenda, which is
circulated to members about two weeks before the Senate meeting). Hess noted
that UND President Kendall Baker is to receive the final report at the end of
December and forward his report to the State Board of Higher Education in
January. . . Senate Vice Chair Wayne Swisher (Communication Sciences &
Disorders) announced that the Senate Executive Committee recommended the Task
Force on Eligibility for Membership on Senate, approved at the October
meeting, be comprised of one faculty member with Senate experience from each
college, appointed by the dean; two administrators appointed from Senate
ex-officio members by the Executive Committee; and two student senators with
University Senate experience, selected by the Student Senate. . . UND
President Baker reminded Senate the University, as it did last year during the
original city-wide vote on funding, continues to strongly support the
community project of The Aurora events center, and that UND personnel, while
naturally free to vote as they choose, are encouraged to study the issues and
participate in informational forums in preparation for the Dec. 3 vote on
further aspects of funding the center. . . UND President Baker replied to
Albert Berger's (History) question about progress on apprehending perpetrators
of two campus incidents of uncivil behavior over the past year that both
matters are being pursued with vigor by campus police but he has not
specifics, but he will instruct the UND police chief to contact Berger with
further information. . . The annual report of the Faculty Instructional
Development Committee was approved for receiving and filing.

OF ACADEMIC INTEREST

Guidelines Listed For Speaking-Intensive Courses

The following are guidelines for Speaking-Intensive (O) Courses to fulfill the
third part of the General Education Communications Requirement.

Speaking-intensive (O) courses are courses in any discipline, and at any
level, that make instruction in the principles, preparation, and practice of
oral presentation a central part of the learning process. Compared to other
courses which include oral presentation, speaking-intensive courses will
generally involve:
     
     -  significantly more oral presentation to a group audience;
     -  more attention to oral presentation on the part of the instructor;
     -  more opportunities for students to work on oral presentation skills
in conjunction with their normal course work.

Amount of Oral Presentation
Students in O courses are expected to develop and deliver oral presentations
on a regular basis, producing individual presentations totaling at least 10
minutes per credit hour. The presentations may be of an instructional,
expository, or persuasive character, and they must incorporate research
material obtained and/or developed by the student for individual oral
presentation.

Instructional Strategies
Speaking-intensive courses include instruction in oral expression through
activities that promote student learning and critical thinking skills.
Examples of such activities include the impromptu practice of oral
presentation, preparation and revision of oral presentations, identification
and promotion of ethical goals appropriate to communication, exercises in
audience analysis and adaptation, assignments on the selection and use of
supporting evidence from authoritative sources, and activities that illustrate
how different cultural variables influence styles and patterns of oral
presentation.

Syllabus Documentation
To ensure that students are aware of the special requirements of O courses,
the syllabus and course documentation should specify:

     -  why oral presentation is central to the course;
     -  how much oral presentation will be required;
     -  how oral presentation will be used in assessing the course grade.


Recommendations and Procedures
1.   Because speaking-intensive courses are also response- or grading-intensive, the optimum size for such classes is 20 students or fewer.

2.   Instructors proposing a course for O status should provide a copy of the
syllabus along with a cover sheet that explains how the course falls within
the guidelines listed above. Proposals should be sent to the committee
secretary as listed below. -- Mary Bergstrom (Admissions and Records),
Secretary, General Education Requirements Committee, Box 8357.

GRANTS AND FELLOWSHIPS

New Research Creative Funds Available

The Faculty Research and Creative Activity Committee (FRCAC) has recently
established the "New Faculty Scholar Awards." These awards are intended to
provide extra support for initiation of research and creative activity
programs of tenure-track assistant professors who have been at UND three years
or less (e.g., date of appointment at UND should be January 1994 or later).
The FRCAC anticipates that many New Faculty Scholar Awards will lead to the
development of projects that will ultimately be funded by external agencies.
Up to three awards of $5,000 each will be made per year. Only outstanding
applications will be funded. Only one competition will be held for Faculty
Scholar Awards each year.

Tuesday, Dec. 3, 1996, is the deadline for submission of New Faculty Scholar
Award applications to the Faculty Research and Creative Activity Committee.
The Committee will consider requests from faculty members to conduct pure and
applied research, support writing projects, or to support other creative and
scholarly endeavors (e.g., performances, art projects, compositions). All
costs normally incurred in the conduct of the research or creative activity
are eligible budget items. Travel costs which are essential to the conduct of
the project may be requested; however, travel to present papers or attend
conferences IS NOT allowable under this program.

The Committee reminds applicants to carefully prepare their proposals and be
specific and realistic in their budget requests. All applications for New
Faculty Scholar Awards MUST include the completed application form, letter of
support from the departmental chair, the applicant's resume, names of no less
than three expert and objective outside reviewers (six names are recommended),
and a description of the project. The original application and 13 copies must
be submitted to the Office of Research and Program Development (ORPD) prior to
the published deadline.

Application forms for the New Faculty Scholar Awards are available at ORPD,
105 Twamley Hall, 7-4279. -- Brian Paulsen (Visual Arts), Chair, Faculty
Research and Creative Activity Committee.

Construction Progress Detailed

Following is a synopsis of UND's construction progress, taken from "Onsite,"
the Physical Plant construction brief.

The Children's Center/Community Center is now open and considered the finest
facility of its kind in the entire area. The project was completed within
budget and on time.

In addition to building projects this summer, there are now over 1,500 linear
feet of new sidewalks throughout the campus. Some of the major projects were
the sidewalks and site work for the Children's Center/Community Center, which
included the playground and parking lot construction. New sidewalks were
installed on the south side of McCannel Hall, creating a pedestrian traffic
flow now conductive to that area because of recent additions to Abbott and
McCannel Halls. Because of ADA requirements and the need to provide safe
travel for all pedestrians whether walking or by wheelchair, sidewalk
maintenance and repair has received a much higher priority over the past few
years, has reduced hazards, and made our campus more wheelchair friendly.

Below are some of the new projects, now on the drawing board or in the
planning stages:

1.  Abbott Hall renovation is now in the construction stage. The new steel for
the penthouse mechanical room is here and will soon be erected.
2.  Skywalks for a walkway between Clifford Hall and ATRC crossing over North
42nd Street are planned. Other skywalk projects now in planning are a skywalk
over University Avenue to join the Johnstone complex with the Walsh complex
and a skywalk over Second Avenue North joining the Law School with O'Kelly
Hall.
3.  The Steam Plant study is soon to be completed and renovations to our coal
handling equipment will be bid in January.
4.  The Campus Ministry building has now been purchased by the Alumni
Association, allowing them to move satellite offices out of Chandler and Bek
Halls and centralize their operation.
5.  With McCannel Hall remodeling coming to a close, we will start relocating
the departments that were temporarily housed in O'Kelly and Hyslop. The
vacated areas in O'Kelly and Hyslop will now be renovated to accept other
departments on a permanent basis.

Rural Technology Center
The construction of the Rural Technology Center (RTC) has now been completed.
The facility is located on the west edge of the campus, and has a connecting
link between it and the ATRC building. RTC will house the Center for
Innovation, Studio One Television Production Center, and a conference center
with meeting rooms for the Division of Continuing Education.

The Center for Innovation will work with technology, entrepreneurs and product
development. Businesses located in this area will be able to collaborate with
UND faculty and researchers for product and business development. The center
will house 10 to 15 companies, as well as 15 to 20 entrepreneurs in the early
stages of developing a product, a company, or processing technology. It will
give businesses time to establish themselves, prior to moving to a future
location. Once these businesses have relocated, other new businesses will take
their place.

Studio One, a TV news program, and the Television Production Center will also
be housed in the center. Because of satellite uplink and downlink
capabilities, student journalists could interview people anywhere in the
country. The Television Production Center will move to the new building this
month.

The RTC will also include a conference center with meeting spaces for the
Division of Continuing Education. They will be linked with students,
companies, or other institutions to provide distance based learning on a wide
range of subjects.

At the present time, the site development is continuing, including access
roads from University Avenue and North 42nd Street, along with additional
parking for the facility.

McCannel Hall
The McCannel Hall addition and remodeling continues. Most of the exterior work
is completed, with the exception of some landscaping and cleanup. The new
entrances to the main part of the building and to the Student Health area are
completed. Most walls are painted throughout the building, ceiling tile is
being installed, cabinets are being installed on the second and third floors
and part of the first floor, and doors are being hung.

Recycling Building
The construction of the Recycling Building has begun. The new building is
located west of the Transportation Building and the Bus Garage. The footings
and foundation work have been completed, along with the underground plumbing
and electrical heating cables. Presently with all of the recyclable materials
throughout the campus, it is not practical to store these items in each
building. With the new facility, more bulk materials can be held for a longer
period of time, thus reducing the amount of pickups, and therefore, reducing
costs. The expected completion date for the building is March 1997.

ARTS AND ENTERTAINMENT

Studio One Names Guests

The Nov. 15 guests on Studio One, the University's live, student-run morning
news show, are Rebecca Welton and John Hovde.

Rebecca Welton is an active duty Air Force member, who teaches flower
arranging courses for the adult education community. Welton began arranging
flowers several years ago, while her husband was stationed in New York. During
this time, she worked in several flower shops and learned a wealth of
information about the creative aspects involved in her job. 
John Hovde was born in Grand Forks, and after graduating from high school, he
enlisted in the military where he served in Vietnam. In 1968 he lost his right
arm and leg. It was in the hospital bed where John had to re-focus his entire
life. While in the hospital he made three vows to himself; he would drive the
fastest car in the country, he would not become a ward of the state, and he
would do something with his life. He worked for 3M Corporation, and after
seven years with them, he went to work for the Minnesota School Board in 1981,
giving speeches. Hovde travels around the country speaking about his
experiences in Vietnam and discussing the controversies over the Vietnam
Conflict.

Studio One is an award-winning live one-hour weekly morning show featuring
news, weather, sports and interviews. In Grand Forks it airs on Channel 3 live
on Friday at 7 a.m. and is rebroadcast at noon and 7 p.m., Saturday at 10 a.m.
and noon and again Monday through Wednesday at 7 p.m. Studio One also airs at
the Grand Forks Air Force Base and in Fargo, Bismarck/Mandan, Minot,
Crookston, and in Minneapolis. -- Tina Swendseid, Ad/PR Staff, UND Studio One.

Cultural Enrichment Group Begins Fall Season

An international expert on contemporary art will speak to Cultural Enrichment
Group members Saturday, Nov. 16, at 2 p.m. at the North Dakota Museum of Art.

Edward Gomez, a contributing editor to "Art and Antiques" magazine and a
former correspondent for "Time" magazine in New York and Paris, will speak
about the work of Ignacio Iturria, whose exhibition opens at the North Dakota
Museum of Art Sunday, Nov. 17. Gomez's feature article on Iturria is in the
October issue of "Art and Antiques."

Gomez is a former United States Foreign Service cultural affairs officer, and
senior editor of "Metropolitan Home" magazine. He has written for "ARTnews,"
"Metropolis," "Metropolitan Home," "Out," "Conde Nast Traveler," "Far Eastern
Economic Review" (Hong Kong), "The Japan Times" (Japan), "The San Francisco
Examiner," "Raw Visions" (U.K.) and other publications.
Gomez has authored an article on the history of Japanese modern art in "Le
Dictionnaire de la civilization Japanese" (1994), published by Hazan Editions,
France's leading publisher of art and design books. He has exhibited his own
artwork in New York, Europe and Japan, and is currently teaching a graduate-level course in the history of design and visual communications at Pratt
Institute in New York. He has lived and worked in England, France, Italy,
Jamaica and Japan, and recently completed a first novel called "Angel's
Share."

The Cultural Enrichment Group, organized by the North Dakota Museum of Art,
includes people who are interested in contemporary art but perhaps have not
studied formally and would like to know more. Others with experience in the
visual arts join to share their expertise as well as to have the opportunity
to meet the speakers who often have national reputations in art. After the
presentations, the group meets socially with the speakers.
Enrollment for the year is $50 and can be purchased at the door. Membership
includes up to five lectures and receptions, plus the opportunity to make one
guided art tour each year. Past trips have been to New York, to the
International Navy Pier Art Show in Chicago, and to Minneapolis and Chicago.
This year the group will go to Santa Fe, N.M., to visit galleries, museums and
artist studios. In addition the group makes one regional trip to visit artist
studios in the area. -- Maresy Schroeder, North Dakota Museum of Art.

open at the North Dakota Museum of Art Sunday, Nov. 17. The show will include
both new works and a survey of the past pieces of Uruguayan artist Ignacio
Iturria, who won a special acquisition prize at last year's Venice Biennale.

The upcoming exhibition at the Museum, which was mentioned in an article on
Iturria in the October issue of "Art and Antiques," is expected to draw
widespread attention in the art world. It will run through Jan. 5, 1997. --
Eliot Glassheim, North Dakota Museum of Art.

Women's Center Lists Programs

Upcoming programs for the Women's Center, 305 Hamline St., follow. All
programs begin at noon; feel free to bring your lunch. Please note that Monday
and Thursday events are for women only.

The Monday, Nov. 18, Day In and Day Out program is "Women and Attractiveness."
This session will focus on becoming aware of our feelings toward other women
and our own self image. We will work to develop an awareness of competition
and other conditioned attitudes in ourselves toward other women.

The Wednesday, Nov. 20, Feast and Focus program is "Martha Stewart and Me." Is
Martha pushing women back into the kitchen or have we lost an appreciation for
traditional domestic skills such as homemaking, cooking, and gardening? Is
Martha setting women up in another "super woman" role, or is this just another
choice that women have to make concerning their lifestyle? Join us for this
interesting discussion.

And the Thursday, Nov. 21, For Women Only program is "Sexual Etiquette: A Game
of Manners." The purpose of this game is to increase awareness and empathy for
our sexual partners and to better understand why we are often at odds with
each other when it comes to the topic of sex.

optimism, and more than a little humor, is a buoyant celebration of the
accomplishments, character, and aspirations of Latinos in Minnesota and across
the country.

All faculty, staff, students and community members are invited. The program
will be held Wednesday, Nov. 20, at 6:30 p.m. at the Lecture Bowl, Memorial

Collegium Musicum Sets Concert

On Friday, Nov. 22, at 7:30 p.m., in the Josephine Campbell Recital Hall, 
Hughes Fine Arts Center, the UND Collegium Musicum will present
"Metamorphoses: Transformations of Renaissance Music." Admission is $4 for
adults, $2 for students.  The program will explore ways in which the composers
and fashions changed music of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries.

Highlights of the program include a performance of a Kyrie by Johannes
Ockeghem in all four modes for which he designed it.  Other transformations
include instrumental arrangements for the Duke of Ferrara of popular vocal
songs of the fifteenth century.  Sometimes, notations indicate that a work
should be performed in a different key, like those which transform
Palestrina's motet, "Adoramus te, Christe."  Victoria's contemporary  work, "O
Magnum Mysterium," depicts theological transformation through rich harmony and
counterpoint.  A madrigal by Rore will demonstrate the transformation of
Renaissance style to Baroque through florid ornaments, and a solo madrigal by
Caccini will reappear as a harpsichord work.  There will also be Intradas for
wind band, formal set pieces which are dances transfigured. The performance
will be a showcase for UND's collection of historic instruments, and offers an
opportunity to hear lute, harp, recorder, cornetto, shawm (the oboist's
revenge), and sackbut, as well as harpsichord and organ.

The UND Collegium Musicum specializes in authentic performance of rare and
historic music. The group includes a Vocal Ensemble, a Soft Consort, and a
Renaissance Wind Band. Now directed by Gary Towne, the Collegium Musicum was
founded by Tamar Read in the early 1960s as an outgrowth of her Music History
class. The group has performed a broad range of music, including the American
premiers of several major works.

-- Gary Towne, Associate Professor of Music.

The 33rd annual North Dakota Auditions conducted under the auspices of the
Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions will be held Saturday, Nov. 23,

The auditions will be followed by a vocal master class conducted by Sheila
Allen of Texas Christian University, Fort Worth.

The North Dakota audition is part of a nation-wide system of auditions held to

Historically, one or two singers advance to the Upper Midwest auditions held
in St. Paul on Feb. 1. The winner of the Upper Midwest audition will advance
with all expenses paid to the national finals Feb. 16 in New York at the
Metropolitan Opera. Grand Forks native Maria Williams won the North Dakota and
Upper Midwest auditions last year to compete in the national finals.

This year's judges are Sheila Allen, Kenneth Bowles of Minot State University
and director of Minot's Western Opera Company, and Karen Bradley of Bemidji
State University.

Admission to the auditions and the vocal master-class is free and open to the
public. -- G. Paul Larson (Economics), Director, North Dakota District of the
