SIU Trustees Approve Contracts for SIUE

2016-05-05 13:43:00 SIUE.edu

The Southern Illinois University Board of Trustees, at its regularly scheduled meeting on the Carbondale campus Thursday, May 5, approved contracts for purchasing temporary employee services along with trash and recycling services on the Edwardsville campus. The board also revised the budget for the Art and Design East window replacement project, and approved planning for replacing flooring in Cougar Village single-student apartments.

The board approved a contract with Extra Help, Inc., of Marion, to purchase temporary employee services for various SIUE departments, which require temporary employees from qualified agencies throughout the academic year. The initial one-year contract is worth $200,000 with the option to renew for five, one-year periods subject to continuing needs, availability of funds and satisfactory vendor performance.

The board approved contracts with Allied Waste Transportation, Inc., of Edwardsville, for $540,000 and Waste Management, of St. Louis, for $355,000, to supply trash and recycling removal services to the Edwardsville, Alton and East St. Louis campuses, plus the St. Clair Head Start Centers. Subject to continued need, satisfactory vendor service and favorable market conditions, the University may renew the initial one-year agreement for up to an additional three one-year contracts. Allied Waste Transportation will manage the Morris University Center and University Housing, while Waste Management will service the remainder.

SIUE presented a revised budget of $4.5 million for the Art and Design East window replacement project after initial bids for the originally approved $3.32 million project budget were rejected. The project will be re-bid during summer 2016 and will be funded from facilities fee revenue. The project will use a combination of windows, metal panels and limestone to replace the failing original glass block windows. The building’s energy efficiency, lighting quality and overall comfort will improve. 

The board will allow SIUE to move forward with planning and cost estimates to replace flooring material in the 400-side of single-student apartments in Cougar Village. The flooring material’s useful life has expired, and flooring options and costs will be studied. The design and replacement work will be funded by University Housing reserve, repair and replacement funds. Final budget and contract approvals will require further board consideration.

SIU Trustees Approve Appointments for SIUE Deans

2016-05-05 13:23:00 SIUE.edu

The Southern Illinois University Board of Trustees, at its regularly scheduled meeting on the Carbondale campus today, approved the dean appointments for the Schools of Engineering and Nursing at the Edwardsville campus.  

The board approved contracts for Cem Karacal, PhD, as dean of the School of Engineering (SOE) and Laura Bernaix, PhD, as dean of the School of Nursing (SON).

The board also approved the contract for Rich Walker as interim vice chancellor for administration at SIUE through May 2017. Additionally, it extended the employment agreement of interim chancellor Stephen Hansen for one month through the end of July 2016.

Karacal takes the reins as dean of the School of Engineering effective Friday, July 1. He has served as interim dean since December 2015. Karacal joined the SOE faculty in 1993 and has served in several School and University-wide capacities. During the last six years, he has emerged as a leader within the SOE serving as the associate dean and director of the cooperative PhD program in engineering science. Previously, he led the industrial engineering program.

Bernaix assumes the role of dean of the School of Nursing effective Friday, July 1. She has served as interim dean since June 2014. She is an alumnus of SIUE and brings 27 years of academic experience as a faculty member at the University. During those years, she has provided significant service to the School and to the University in a variety of roles. She served as chair of the Department of Primary Care and Health Systems Nursing from 2009-2013 when her role expanded to also serve as associate dean.

Walker steps into the interim role as Vice Chancellor for Administration (VCA) Kenn Neher has announced his intention to retire at the end of May 2016. Walker currently serves as the assistant vice chancellor for administration for planning and budgeting, a position to which he was appointed in 2001.

Although the selection process for a new SIUE chancellor is nearing completion with the expectation of meeting the start date of July 1, 2016, the board supported the need for Hansen’s availability to ensure a smooth leadership transition by providing support, community visits and related administrative services for the new chancellor.

SIUE?s Zhou Receives Prestigious Fulbright Scholar Award

2016-05-05 10:40:00 SIUE.edu

Dr. Jianpeng Zhou, chair of the Department of Civil Engineering in the SIUE School of Engineering.Southern Illinois University Edwardsville’s Jianpeng Zhou, Ph.D., P.E. and chair of the Department of Civil Engineering in the School of Engineering, has received a Fulbright U.S. Scholar grant, presented by the U.S. Department of State and the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board (FFSB).

Zhou will travel to Brazil in 2017 to conduct and expand his research project entitled, “Adaptive Green Infrastructure for Urban Water Management,” at the Institute of Hydraulic Research of the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS). UFRGS is one of the largest federal universities in Brazil, located in the City of Porto Alegre, with more than 27,000 undergraduate and 9,300 graduate students.

“It is an honor to join the esteemed alumni of the Fulbright program,” Zhou said. “I am excited about this incredible opportunity, not only to broaden my research and scholarship, but also to build a culturally enriched life experience, and foster increased cooperation and collaborative research in urban water management.”

According to Zhou, Brazil is experiencing rapid urbanization and population growth, which has placed high demands on infrastructure and severe urban water management problems. Likewise, in the U.S., water infrastructures in many cities require the investment of billions of dollars to address their physical and environmental issues.

“Green infrastructure integrates storm water management with landscaping, offering a holistic approach to urban water problems,” he explained. “This project will develop a fundamental understanding about green infrastructure for storm water reduction.

“By working with the faculty at UFRGS, I hope to establish collaboration for future joint research. Shared learning and development of adaptive green infrastructure will benefit engineering applications in both the U.S. and Brazil.”

About the Fulbright Program: The Fulbright Program is the flagship international educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. government and is designed to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries. The primary source of funding for the Fulbright Program is an annual appropriation made by the U.S. Congress to the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. Participating governments and host institutions, corporations and foundations in foreign countries and in the United States also provide direct and indirect support. Recipients of Fulbright grants are selected on the basis of academic or professional achievement, as well as demonstrated leadership in their fields. The Program operates in over 160 countries worldwide.

SIU School of Dental Medicine Student-Researcher Gains Global Attention

2016-05-05 10:00:00 SIUE.edu

(L-R) The president of The Odontographic Society of Chicago (OSC) Paul Landman, SIU SDM third year student Spencer Blackham, and OSC secretary Daniel Berman celebrate Blackham’s award at the OSC banquet in Chicago.Southern Illinois University Edwardsville School of Dental Medicine (SDM) third year student Spencer Blackham has a passion for helping people, and a drive to advance the fields of dentistry and medicine through research.

Blackham’s research on bone defects, and evaluation of the biocompatibility of a new dental material using a calvarial defect model, has earned national recognition and the opportunity to share his work with an international audience.

In April, The Odontographic Society of Chicago presented Blackham with its Dr. Irwin B. Robinson Award for Student-Researcher Excellence. The student-researcher has also been awarded an American Association for Dental Research (AADR) Bloc Travel Grant to present his research at the International Association for Dental Research (IADR) meeting in Seoul, South Korea in June.

“If we just do what we’ve always done, we’re not going to move forward,” Blackham said. “The opportunity to create something better is exciting. The curiosity that was in me at the beginning of my schooling has grown into passion.”

According to the project’s principal investigator Kevin Rowland, PhD and associate professor in the SDM, the data and outcomes from his and Blackham’s research may be used to improve bone healing that is necessary for a variety of dental procedures, including the placing of implants.

 “Engagement in research exposes students to cutting-edge experiments, technologies and advancements that may become part of their routine clinical practice in the future,” Rowland said. “The payoff for students performing research has ancillary benefits as well. Research teaches students a more in-depth way of critical thinking that can be applied immediately in the classroom and in their studies.”

“I don’t think you can get this kind of quality student research experience at any other school, and still maintain involvement in your scholastic, clinical and extra-curricular responsibilities and activities,” said Blackham. “The SDM faculty have been instrumental in demonstrating how you set up a research project and assisting with the more political aspects of it, like gaining funding.

“It’s rewarding to see results, not just in awards, but people realizing that this project, these materials, can do so much more and provide something we didn’t previously have,” he added.

Blackham’s next goal is to achieve an orthodontic residency.

SIUE Provides Educational Leadership Professional Development Online

2016-05-05 09:15:00 SIUE.edu

knowlton-daveDuring the summer of 2016, the Southern Illinois University Edwardsville School of Education, Health and Human Behavior is combining with the Department of Educational Outreach to provide professional development online courses for K-12 teachers.

 The Instructional Technology Program will be offering professional development (PD) through a series of software focus courses. Students can take full graduate level courses or a sequence of graduate courses to earn PD hours and certificates of completion instead of graduate level credit.

“As rapidly as technology is evolving in this digital age, educators need to adapt just as quickly to such a fluid environment,” said Dave Knowlton, PhD and graduate program director of instructional technology. “These courses will help community college faculty, K-12 teachers and corporate trainers stay on the cutting edge of teaching, learning and training.”

Professional Development Software Focus Courses are $150 per course and earn 10 PD hours per course. Courses include:

Full Online Professional Development Courses are $450 per course and earn 45 PD hours per course. The following online courses are graduate level for-credit courses at SIUE. Each individual course can be taken for PD hours and a certificate of completion instead of graduate level credit. Signing up for all three courses in a sequence reduces per course expense by 20 percent resulting in the entire sequence cost of $1,080. 

Teaching with Technology Courses include:

SIUE Women?s Tennis Faces Vanderbilt in NCAA First Round

2016-05-05 08:20:00 SIUE.edu

SIUE WTEN OVCSIUE women’s tennis will face defending national champion and No. 6 seed Vanderbilt in the opening round of the NCAA Tournament in Nashville, Friday, May 13 at the Brownlee O. Currey Jr. Tennis Center. The match is scheduled for 4 p.m. CT.

Vanderbilt is the opening round host that will feature the Commodores and Cougars. The winner of that match will go on to face either Rice or Clemson.

“They're a good team, and they are well-coached,” said SIUE Head Coach Nick Mueller. “We’re excited to go, and it's a first for our program’s history to be in the Division I championship. To be able to go to Vanderbilt and play the defending champs is a privilege for us. Our girls will cherish the experience.”

The Commodores were the Southeastern Conference regular season champion, boasting an overall record of 19-5 and an SEC record of 11-2. Vanderbilt lost to Georgia in the semifinal match of the SEC Tournament, earning an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament.

The field is set for 64 teams to compete in a single-elimination tournament with the final rounds located in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

The Cougars earned an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament after clinching their first Ohio Valley Conference Championship against UT Martin, adding to its 11-match win streak, which is the longest since moving to Division I. SIUE also clinched a share of the regular season title with a 19-4 overall record and 9-1 OVC record. It’s the most wins the Cougars have earned since joining the conference and the most overall wins in the D-I era.
