President Bullock's Update
Summer 2012 Greetings!
 
I hope that this update finds all of you well, enjoying some time with your family and friends, and looking forward to the beginning of a new academic year. As some of you may be aware, we are in the midst of the most severe drought since 1936. Nearly half of the counties in our state have been declared disaster areas. We continue to pray for all of those who earn their living from the land, for those who have endured this unprecedented heat this summer…and we continue to pray for rain and cooler temperatures. I continue to be grateful for our grounds staff that is making sure that our many young trees, plants and shrubs are watered with regularity.

Define your inner Spartan!

There’s a definite buzz around campus these days. Fall is quickly approaching. Students are registered for classes, they’ve been notified of their roommates, and they’re already getting acquainted on Facebook and Twitter. And soon, they will all be back on campus, ready to start a new chapter of life, as a University of Dubuque student.

Meet the New PACC Director, Tom Robbins
 

First and foremost, I congratulate UD for the foresight and vision to build a new Performing Arts and Campus Center (PACC). Given eroding economic conditions, this project may seem a bold and risky venture to some. To the contrary, I believe this facility will position the University very competitively among peer institutions and will also provide a tremendous vehicle for community outreach.

 
 

 
 

Chlapaty Science Fellowships
Update from Dr. Adam Hoffmann

 Flying squirrels, and Orchids, and Thermophilic enzymes! Oh, my!

As the spring academic school year gave way to summer, the halls of the Science Center were brimming with more excitement than usual. It wasn’t due to the end of lectures, tests, or homework (well maybe a bit it was), rather it was caused by the start of the Chlapaty Science Fellowship Program. This competitive fellowship program, funded by a generous gift from Joe and Linda Chlapaty, is designed to aid in the preparation of talented undergraduate students for graduate study.
