U AVENUE WILL CLOSE NEXT WEEK FROM PRINCETON TO OXFORD

A portion of University Avenue will be closed to vehicle and pedestrian
traffic the week of Sept. 22-26 to erect the structural steel framing for
the
skywalk connecting Hancock Hall and Johnstone Hall. The shutdown will be
from
Princeton Street to Oxford Street. Both Oxford and Princeton Streets will
remain open.

East bound traffic on University Avenue will detour north along Princeton
Street, then east, at 5th Ave. North, and then south along Oxford Street
to
continue east on University Ave., or detour south on Tulane Drive, State
Street, or Stanford Road to Campus Road to get to the east part of campus.  
West bound traffic can detour north on Harvard Street to 6th Ave. North,
west
on 6th Ave. North to Stanford Road, and then south to return to University
Ave., or detour south along Cornell Street or Centennial Drive to Campus
Road
to get to the west part of campus.

This shutdown includes both vehicle and pedestrian travel.  Pedestrians
can
walk south around Smith Hall or north around Squires Hall to reach the
east
part of campus and/or the west part. It is very important that no
pedestrians
walk around or near the area during this time. Please heed all warning
signs.  

We will try to notify the campus community if there are any changes to
this
schedule.  Weather conditions may also play a role in any schedule
changes.

OPEN MEETINGS, RECORDS LAWS CHANGED

With the beginning of the new academic year, certain faculty and staff
members
and some students, need to be aware of actions they are required to take
relating to open meetings and open records laws changes passed by the 1997
State Legislature.

Requirements of the new law about OPEN MEETINGS involve steps which chairs
of
certain governing bodies and committees of the University must take. Those
steps involve how they must post notice of their meetings.

Chairs of affected governing bodies will be informed of those procedures
directly through memos. The procedures include providing to the Office of
University Relations the dates, times, and locations of meetings.

Pat Seaworth, attorney for the North Dakota University System, said
"employees
responsible for scheduling or chairing meetings of groups subject to the
open
meetings law, including faculty and student officers and employees who may
handle requests for information, should be familiar with these laws."

Seaworth continues in a letter dated July 28, 1997:

"As first introduced, the legislation would have made just about any
meeting
of state employees discussing official business, including meetings of
presidents' cabinets, department heads, department or division faculty,
etc.,
subject to the law. In response to my opposition to the original bill, a
compromise version was ultimately adopted providing that any group 'acting
collectively pursuant to authority delegated to the group by a governing
body'
is subject to the law.

"Therefore, groups created by law or board of higher education policy, or
groups delegated authority by the board of higher education are subject to
the
open meetings law. These groups that ARE subject to the law include: BOARD
OF
HIGHER EDUCATION COMMITTEES AND SUBCOMMITTEES (E.G., AUDIT COMMITTEE);
PRESIDENTIAL SEARCH COMMITTEES; THE AGRICULTURAL RESEARCH BOARD; THE
STUDENT
FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE PROGRAM ADVISORY BOARD; AND THE NDUS HUMAN RESOURCE
COUNCIL AND SAFETY/RISK MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE (AND CAMPUS LOSS CONTROL
COMMITTEES). Also, because they are created or delegated authority by the
board of higher education, faculty and student governing bodies are
subject to
the open meetings law. These groups include: FACULTY SENATE (AND
COMMITTEES);
STANDING COMMITTEES ON FACULTY RIGHTS AND SPECIAL REVIEW COMMITTEES; AND
CAMPUS STUDENT SENATES (AND COMMITTEES).

"On the other hand, groups delegated authority by an institution president
or
the chancellor, and not by the board of higher education, are apparently
NOT
subject to the open meeting law. These groups include the chancellor's
cabinet, a president's cabinet or council, department head meetings,
department or division faculty meetings, etc. These groups are not acting
pursuant to authority delegated by the Board of Higher Education; rather,
they
are acting pursuant to authority delegated by the institution CEO, a dean
or
other campus official, or they are ad hoc entities without formal
authority.

FILING NOTICES OF MEETINGS

"Compliance with the open meetings law by campus entities is made less
burdensome by an optional notice provision that applies to board of higher
education groups. The law states that in lieu of the notice requirements
generally applicable to other public entities (i.e., filing annual meeting
schedule and sending meeting agendas to the secretary of state and posting
meeting notices and agendas at main office and meeting location), campus
entities may simply file in the President's office the name, address, and
telephone number of a person who may be contacted by anyone interested in
meeting information or requesting meeting notification for a particular
group.
Faculty and student senates and committees should take advantage of this
provision.

NOTE: IT HAS BEEN DETERMINED THAT AT UND INSTEAD OF FILING IN THE
PRESIDENT'S
OFFICE, THE NAME, ADDRESS, AND TELEPHONE NUMBER OF THE CONTACT PERSON MAY
BE
FILED IN THE OFFICE OF UNIVERSITY RELATIONS. REMINDER NOTIFICATIONS WILL
BE
SENT SOON TO AFFECTED GROUPS.

"Notwithstanding the legislation,management will be offered. 

The conference is open to all students, staff, faculty, and community
members.
There is NO registration fee. To register or for more information, please
contact 777-4200 or stop by the Student Organization Center, Memorial
Union. -- Ben Subedi, Memorial Union.

GRANTS AND FELLOWSHIPS

EPSCoR PROGRAM SEEKS RESEARCH MENTORS

The North Dakota EPSCoR Program (an Experimental Program to Stimulate
Competitive Research) is soliciting faculty members in the Science,
Engineering, and Mathematics Programs at UND and NDSU to provide guidance
and
mentoring to the next generation of researchers.  Mentoring 
opportunities are available in conjunction with three EPSCoR sponsored
programs.

* Science Bound -- This program gives entering freshmen in the science,
engineering, and mathematics fields the opportunity to experience hands-on
research in their area of interest.  Science Bound is a competitive
program
that pays students for up to 10 hours of research assistance per week
during
the academic year. Students are also given the opportunity to do full-time
research during the summer following their first year of study. Successful
students are eligible for a second year of funding.

* Advanced Undergraduate Research Awards (AURA)-- EPSCoR's AURA program
(formerly known as REU) gives undergraduates in the fields of science,
engineering, and mathematics the opportunity to experience academic
research
first-hand. AURA students are awarded a stipend for eight to 10 weeks
during
the summer to do research under the guidance of a faculty member.

* Research Opportunity Award -- This program was established to encourage
collaboration between UND and NDSU researchers and the faculty of the
other
North Dakota colleges and universities.  Participating faculty members are
awarded up to two month's salary during the summer to be used for research
supplies and travel.

Mentor application forms were sent to faculty through campus mail.  For
more
information on either the Mentoring Program, or the three programs
described
above, please contact David Givers at (701) 231-7516 or
givers@badlands.nodak.edu. Student applications will be available Oct. 27.

participants who are members of underrepresented groups in the fields of
science, engineering, and mathematics.

$4.5 MILLION IN R&D GRANTS 
AVAILABLE FROM DOE

The Department of Energy (DOE) STTR program has a budget of $4.5 million
for
their 1998 program. The DOE anticipates awarding 16-20 Phase I awards in
the
amount of $100,000 each; the remaining funds will be used for Phase II
awards.

The STTR program requires that the small business which is applying team
with
a research institution (university, non-profit, or federal lab) in a
collaborative effort to work on a project that has commercialization
potential. At least 40 percent of the work must be performed by the small
business and at least 30 percent by the institutional partner. Unlike the
SBIR
program, the STTR program allows the Principal Investigator to have
primary
employment with an organization other than the small business awardee,
including the research institution. However, there must be an official
relationship between the small business and the PI.

The solicitation is scheduled to be released Oct. 1, and close Dec. 15. To
obtain a copy of the program solicitation, refer to the DOE homepage via
the
Center for Innovation homepage [www.und.edu/dept/cibd/welcome.htm]. If you
have any questions or would like additional information on the STTR or

USE MOTOR POOL FOR TRAVEL

State Fleet Services has designated the UND Transportation Department as
the
dispatch center for state fleet motor pool vehicles in the Grand Forks
area.
Several new vehicles have been added to the motor pool to accommodate
state
fleet users. If you are planning state travel, contact the Transportation
Office at 777-4122; the Motor Pool Dispatcher will take your vehicle
request
and schedule a vehicle for you. Current State Fleet rate for a compact
sedan
is 21 cents-per-mile, substantially less than the 25 cents-per-mile rate
allowed for personal vehicle reimbursement. A four-cents-per-mile savings
can
be realized by using the state vehicle and on a typical round trip to
Bismarck, $20 can be saved. Please consider a state vehicle when you are
planning your next travel on University business; state
agencies/institutions
are encouraged to use fleet vehicles rather than personally owned vehicles
whenever possible. -- Jim Uhlir, Director, Auxiliary Services.

PROGRAM AIDS EXPECTANT MOMS, 
CHILDREN WITH HEALTH PROBLEMS

The College of Nursing is seeking expectant mothers to participate in the
Expectant Family Program, and children with chronic illness, developmental
disability or health risks to participate in the Child Health Program. The
programs are coordinated through the course, N387, The Family in the
Community.

The Expectant Family Program serves as a learning experience for UND
nursing
students by providing the students with the opportunity to support the
expanding family. The nursing student's role focuses on the needs of the
family during the time of normal childbearing on a one-on-one basis.

In the Child Health Program, students visit the family and child about
twice a
month. Students focus on child health, safety, development, nutrition and
family support.

The College of Nursing has been serving between 150 and 200 families per
year.
Nursing students are supervised by College of Nursing faculty throughout
the
assignment period.

There is no cost to participate. This is a community service and an
educational experience.

If you are interested in participating in the Expectant Family Program or
Child Health Program, please contact Liz Tyree, Coordinator, 777-4522, or
the
secretary for the Nursing Center, 777-4147, for a brochure or more

ARTS AND ENTERTAINMENT

ALUMNI ASSOCIATION TO HOST HOMECOMING PARTY

The Alumni Association will host a UND Homecoming '97 Party at the Grand
Forks
Civic Auditorium Saturday, Oct. 4, from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m. The party is open
to
everyone, including the Grand Forks community, alumni and friends. It is
the
"grand finale" of the Homecoming festivities. This year's party will
feature
two dance bands, beginning with Dick King and the Classic Swing Band from
8 to
9:15 p.m., playing its most toe-tappin', memory-makin' tunes. At 9:30
p.m.,
"The Fantastic Convertibles," a Minneapolis-based group, will perform
their
repertoire of classic hits from the '50s and '60s. The "Fantastic
Convertibles" have appeared with such greats as Dion, Freddy Cannon, Tommy
Roe, the Drifters, the Chiffons, the Shirelles, Sha-na-na, Bobby Vee, and
many
more.

Advance tickets can be purchased for $5 by calling the UND Alumni
Association
at 1-800-543-8764 or 777-2611. Tickets will be $6 at the door. No
reservations
are needed.

The UND Homecoming '97 Party is hosted by a local Grand Forks All-Alumni

All are welcome. -- Sharon Rezac Andersen, Director, International Centre.
*******

WOMEN'S CENTER LISTS EVENTS

The Wednesday, Sept. 24, Feast and Focus program at noon in the Women's
Center, 305 Hamline Street, is "I Wish I Could Have Said No." The line
between
wanted and pressured sexual contact can be confusing for many young
adults.
This short film and discussion will explore the issues which hinder many
women's ability to say no. Topics for discussion include sexual
communication
skills, gender stereotypes, sexual values clarification, women's right to
say
yes or no, and the changing and confusing rules in contemporary sexuality.

The Thursday, Sept. 25, For Women Only program is "The Gift of Fear." The
basic premise for this discussion is that we are all experts at predicting
violent behavior. Like every creature, you know when you are in the
presence
of danger. You have the gift of a brilliant internal guardian that stands
ready to warn you of hazards and guide you through risky situations. Join
us
for this discussion of how fear can empower rather than debilitate women
who
live, every day, with the danger of being female in America. 

Please join us. -- Donna Oltmanns, Coordinator, Women's Center.

READERS SERIES OPENS AT MUSEUM

The 1997-98 North Dakota Museum of Art Readers Series opens with a
program,
"The Ghost of Lake Agassiz," Thursday, Sept. 25, at 7:30 p.m.

The reading is by authors included in "The Ghost of Lake Agassiz," a small
book of flood-related poems and essays written between April 19 and May
30.
The title of the chapbook and the reading is a reference to the glacial
lake
that formed the Red River Valley. The writings are an early attempt to
reflect
on the wider meaning of the flood.

The authors are Simon Buehrer, Melanie Crow, Stephen Dilks, Kathy Coudle
King,
James McKenzie, Jane Varley and Ron Vossler. The book was edited by Jane
Varley and Jennifer Bottinelli of the UND English Department.

Of the seven original authors included in the book, two have moved away.
All
five of the remaining authors will read; one of those who left will read
via
videotape. The authors will include in the reading new works related to
the
flood written after publication of the chapbook.

Chapbooks will be available for $5 at the reading, which is free and open
to
the public. -- Jane Varley, North Dakota Museum of Art.
*******

"KEEP THE FAITH" WILL HAVE 
ENCORE PERFORMANCE

The 1997 SPA (Summer Performing Arts) program presents an encore
presentation
of the original musical, "Keep the Faith." The production in July was a
huge
success. We heard many requests from people who wanted to see the show.
Through the cooperation of many groups and sponsors, we are able to bring
"Keep the Faith" back to Grand Forks. There will be three shows at 7 p.m.
Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, Sept. 29, 30 and Oct. 1, at the Chester
Fritz
Auditorium.

"Keep the Faith" is an exceptional theatrical event.  Once in a great
while an
artist hopes to create a magical moment where everything better and more
beautiful and powerful than ever could have been imagined. "Keep the
Faith" is
one of those moments.  

"Keep the Faith" is dedicated to those affected by the Flood of 1997. The
story we tell is ours.  

Tickets go on sale Monday, Sept. 15; stop by the Chester Fritz Auditorium
from
9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. or pick them up the night of the show. All seats are
$5.

MUSEUM COFFEE BAR RE-OPENED

The North Dakota Museum of Art Coffee Bar has re-opened and will feature a
new
lunch menu of sandwiches, appetizers, salads, and desserts created and
prepared by Verena Fonder.

In addition, an exhibition of glassblower Rollin Karg is in the coffee
bar.
Karg, a glass blower from Kansas, donated over $5,000 worth of glass
sculptures, paperweights, and perfume bottles to the Museum after hearing
about the destruction of spring flooding in Greater Grand Forks. Prices
range
from $30 to $200. Larger works will be on display in the coffee bar, while
Karg's smaller, colorful and unique works will be sold in the Museum gift
shop.

Those who enjoyed the La Brasa Bistro will be familiar with Verena Fonder,
who
has created the coffee bar's lunch menu and previously owned and operated
La
Brasa. Her menu at the Museum will include fresh soups, Mediterranean
appetizers like grape leaves and hummus, a tabouli and a house salad, and
three unique sandwiches; a chicken filet sandwich marinated in marjoram
with
lettuce and tomatoes on whole wheat bread, a roasted vegetable sandwich
drizzled with olive oil on French bread, and a smoked salmon and cream
cheese
sandwich on dill bread. The blackboard menu will change weekly, and
takeout
will be available after Sept. 9.

Those interested in a quick snack or breakfast will enjoy homemade cakes
and
desserts to be served throughout the day with coffee, smoothies, fresh
lemonade, and iced coffee drinks. The espresso bar will once again be open
from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. while lunch will be served from 11:30 a.m. to 2
p.m.
