OCT. 3 DEDICATION SET FOR REMODELED McCANNEL HALL

The newly remodeled McCannel Hall, UND's student services building, will
be
dedicated Friday, Oct. 3, during Homecoming '97.  President Kendall Baker
will
preside at the ceremony, set for 3:30 p.m. in front of McCannel Hall (in
the
lobby in case of inclement weather).  Joining him on the podium will be
Dr.
Gordon Henry, vice president for student affairs; Jim Poolman, student
body
president when the original project funding was approved; Annie Claesson,
current student body president; and Cassie Gerhardt, former student
senator
and longtime McCannel Hall building committee member.  All are invited to
attend; a reception and tours will follow the ceremony.

The completion of the student-financed remodeling begins a new chapter in
the
structure's history of four decades of service.  The structure was built
in
1957 as the state's rehabilitation hospital and enlarged in 1962; it was
named
in honor of Dr. Archie McCannel (1879-1959), a prominent Minot physician
who
promoted rehabilitation services throughout North Dakota and also served
on
the State Board of Higher Education.  The University acquired the
structure
for student services use when the rehabilitation hospital moved to new
facilities in the Grand Forks medical park in 1974.  Students assumed a
vital
role for development of McCannel Hall by repeatedly voting to assess
themselves fees to finance remodeling.  In recognition of the services
housed
there and student body's willingness to share the costs, President Thomas
Clifford officially designated McCannel Hall as UND's student services
building in 1984.  The extensively remodeled and enlarged McCannel Hall
being
dedicated at the upcoming ceremony was made possible by the action of the
Student Senate in 1992, when it voted to increase the fee to $15 per
semester
for 20 years. -- Peter Johnson, Media Relations Coordinator, University
Relations.

"HEALTHY HEART" SPECIAL WILL FEATURE ROGER THOMAS

Anyone can have a heart attack -- young, old, man, woman. But we don't
believe
it until it happens to us.

"Healthy Heart" airs Wednesday, Oct. 8, at 8 p.m. on Prairie Public
Television. The 60-minute program will include an exploration of how
lifestyle
can reduce the risk of developing serious heart disease, the treatment
options
available, the symptoms of a heart attack, and ways to improve recovery
after
a heart attack to lead a full and healthy life.

A panel of medical experts will take viewer questions on a variety of
issues
from cardiac care to leading a heart healthy lifestyle. This live call-in
discussion will be moderated by Doug Hamilton. Panel members will include
Ed
Dean, an intervention cardiologist with Dakota Clinic in Fargo; Jenna
Johnson,
exercise physiologist in charge of cardiac rehab at Meritcare, Fargo; and
Kevin Kelly, a dietitian specializing in nutritional counseling with
Forever
Healthy. If callers would rather not ask their question on the air, they
can
talk to one of the many nurse practitioners specializing in cardiac care
who
will answer phones for the broadcast.

"Healthy Heart" will also take viewers through a heart attack experience
from
the patient's point of view. Head Football Coach Roger Thomas knows that
experience first-hand. On July 4 of this year, Thomas suffered a heart
attack.
He'll share his experiences of his heart attack and talk about some of the
changes he's made in his lifestyle to prevent another.

Lynette Hakansen comes from a family with a strong disposition toward
heart
disease. She'll tell us about the preventative measures she's taking to
ensure
she doesn't follow her brother and sister into the cardiac care unit.

More information on preventing heart disease and adopting a heart healthy
lifestyle can be found on the "Healthy Heart" web site ready for launch
Oct.
8. The web site will feature the exclusive web publication of the results
of
the national study Cooperative Cardiovascular Project by the North Dakota
Health Care Review. The "Healthy Heart" web site can be accessed through
Prairie Public Television's home page at www.pol.org/pptv.
"Healthy Heart" is funded with a grant from Dakota Medical Foundation. It
is
the first of what Prairie Public Television and Dakota Medical Foundation
plan
as a series of programs that will provide up-to-date, accurate information
on
a variety of health topics.

Diagnosis) student feedback process for the improvement of instruction.
SGID
is a confidential peer consultation service which generates helpful
student
feedback from individual classes. The process is best used at
mid-semester,
which enables the instructor the opportunity to make "mid-course"
improvements
in the class. SGID documentation may be included by the faculty member in
the
promotion file as evidence of attention to effective teaching. To schedule
an
SGID or for more information about the process, contact the Office of

APPLICANTS SOUGHT FOR OSTFOLDAKADEMIET PROFESSORSHIPS

Applications are now being taken for Ostfoldakademiet Professorships for
fall
semester 1998 and for spring semester 1999. All UND faculty are eligible
to
apply.

Ostfoldakademiet is a one-year program for Norwegian high school graduates
who
take courses in Moss and then complete their education at UND. A number of
UND
students also spend a year abroad studying there. The professor will teach
two
courses, preferably courses that are or could be approved for GER credit.
It
is hoped that one of the two courses will be upper division.
Ostfoldakademiet's schedule closely follows UND's, except that there is a
January mini-semester for which applications are also sought.

To apply, send a resume and proposals (including syllabi) for the two
courses
to Tom Rand, Associate Dean, Arts and Sciences, Box 8038, UND.
Applications
are due Saturday, Nov. 1. Please include a letter from your dean,
supporting
your application.

For further information you might speak with former Ostfoldakademiet
Professors Scott Lowe, Religion (1997), Curt Stofferahn, Sociology (1996),
Janet Kelly Moen, Sociology (1995), or with David Marshall at
International
Programs. Krista Lauritzen, rector of Ostfoldakademiet, will be on campus
from
Oct. 8 to 12 and can also answer any questions about the position. To make
an
appointment with her, phone International Programs at 777-3301. -- Tom

APPLICATIONS DUE FOR 1998-99 DEVELOPMENTAL LEAVES

Eligible faculty and staff who wish to apply for developmental leave
projects
during academic year 1998-99 may submit proposals to the faculty member's
chair and dean or the staff member's administrative supervisor according
to
the announced schedule. After review, recommendations and prioritizing at
the
college and/or administrative supervisory level, all proposals will then
be
forwarded to the Office of the Vice President for Academic Affairs on or
before Nov. 17 for review by Dr. Strathe. Following presidential approval,
applicants will be given notice of an approved or disapproved
developmental
leave. Confirmed and final approval of the proposals will be dependent
upon
the University's 1998-99 salary budget being approved by the State Board
of
Higher Education.

As in the past, developmental leaves which are approved must be funded
with
existing departmental and college resources. Thus, it is likely that some
very
sound proposals may not be approved for budgetary reasons. Faculty and
staff
who expect to submit requests for developmental leaves should discuss
their
plans with their chairpersons, deans, and/or supervisors prior to formally
submitting their proposals.

Developmental leave applications and copies of the State Board of Higher
Education Policy 701.2 governing developmental leaves are available in the
Office of Academic Affairs, 302 Twamley Hall. -- Marlene Strathe, Vice
President for Academic Affairs and Provost.

deficiency form, it is an indication that the student's registration is in
error. The student should not be allowed to continue attending the class,
but
should be directed to the Office of Admissions and Records to correct the
problem.

5.   The "Unsatisfactory Progress Report" forms are to be completed by all
faculty members and returned to the Office of Admissions and Records no
later
than noon on Friday, Oct. 17. Adherence to this schedule is essential
since

BILLBOARD

WEAR SEAT BELTS WHILE DRIVING STATE VEHICLES

The Workers Compensation Bureau recently conducted a survey on seat belt
usage
at the exit of the state fleet motor pool. The survey indicated a seat
belt
usage rate of less than one percent among university employees.
Using seat belts is now a state law in North Dakota. We must improve on
seat
belt usage at UND and I am asking our entire community to strive for 100
percent seat belt usage.

*    Using seat belts DOES reduce injury and loss of life in the event of
an
accident.

*    Wearing seat belts is REQUIRED by state law.

*    When operating or riding in a state fleet vehicle, you are REQUIRED
to
wear available seat belts.

I encourage every university employee and student to always BUCKLE UP.

COUNSELING CENTER OFFERS DEPRESSION SCREENING

The staff of the University Counseling Center will offer UND students the
opportunity to learn about the signs and symptoms of depression and
participate in a free screening as part of National Depression Screening
Day
Thursday, Oct. 9, between 1:30 and 3:30 p.m. in 200 McCannel Hall.

Participants in the screening will view a video on the causes, symptoms,
and
treatments of depression. They will also complete an anonymous written
screening test for depression and have the opportunity to discuss the
results
with a Counseling Center staff person.

Depression affects more than 17 million Americans each year, according to
figures from the National Institute of Mental Health. Fewer than half of
those
affected, however, actually seek treatment, even though treatment can help
80
percent of those affected. Common symptoms of depression include feelings
of
hopelessness, worthlessness, restlessness and irritability, changes in
sleep
and appetite, loss of energy and thoughts of suicide.
Please help bring this event to the attention of UND students. For more
information, please call the Counseling Center at 777-2127. -- Dick Grosz,

The Clothesline Project is a visual display of shirts with written
messages
and illustrations that graphically demonstrate the impact of violence
against
individuals. These shirts are designed by survivors of violence, their
families and/or friends. The purpose is to educate the public, mourn those
who
have died as a result of this violence, and to bear witness to victims'
courage to survive and heal.

The Clothesline Project honors survivors as well as children who have been
affected by intimate violence. A survivor is any person who has
experienced
personal violence and lived to tell about it. The term victim is reserved
for
those who did not survive. Any person who has experienced domestic
violence or
sexual assault at any time in their life is encouraged to come forward and
design a shirt. Victim's families and friends are also invited to
participate.
If you or someone you know would like to decorate a shirt to be added to
the
Clothesline Project, please call Kay or Donna at the Women's Center,
