As part of Ethics Awareness Week Nov. 8-12, students looked over the “CharacterPostWall” in the BTC, where members of the campus community added postcards detailing a specific event of their lives when their character was challenged and how they dealt with it. The focus of this year's event was to have a “Character-Driven Life.”
U.S. Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric Shinseki and Hall of Fame football coach Roy Kidd will address 1,202 degree candidates at Eastern’s annual Fall Commencement on Saturday, Dec. 18.
The morning ceremony at 9:30 a.m. will feature Shinseki and honor candidates from the Colleges of Education, Health Sciences and Justice & Safety. The afternoon ceremony, at 2 p.m., will feature Kidd and recognize candidates from the Colleges of Arts & Sciences and Business & Technology. Both ceremonies will be held in Alumni Coliseum and are open to the public.
The two ceremonies will recognize a total of 107 associate degree candidates, 828 bachelor’s degree candidates 265 master’s degree candidates and two doctoral degree candidates.
Born in Hawaii to an American family of Japanese ancestry, Shinseki rose to become the senior leader of the U.S. Army. He was appointed as the seventh U.S. Secretary of Veterans Affairs in 2009 after a distinguished 38-year military career that culminated with his service as Army Chief of Staff from 1999 to 2003.
A 1965 graduate of West Point, Shinseki served two combat tours in Vietnam, was badly wounded on each of those tours, and has been honored many times for excellence and valor as a soldier and leader of soldiers. In addition to his bachelor’s degree from the United States Military Academy, Shinseki earned a master’s degree in English Literature from Duke University and returned to teach English at the Military Academy.
He will receive an honorary Doctor of Laws degree from EKU.
Coach Kidd, a native of Corbin, was a standout football player during his student days at Eastern. He returned to his alma mater as head coach in 1964 and his teams went on to win 315 games, two I-AA national titles and 16 conference titles in 39 seasons, ranking him among the all-time greats of the football coaching profession.
He is a member of the National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame, among many other honors. The EKU football stadium is named in his honor, and the campus street in front of the stadium is named Roy and Sue Kidd Way for the coach and his wife. Coach Kidd is also a member of EKU’s Hall of Distinguished Alumni.
Kidd will receive an honorary Doctor of Humanities degree from the University.
Speaking as representatives of their graduating class in the morning and afternoon ceremonies, respectively, will be Abigail Love, of Richmond, and Derek Todd, of Eubank.
Receptions for graduates and their families will be held in the Fred Darling Gymnasium in Alumni Coliseum immediately after each ceremony.
National recognition continues to shower Eastern’s innovative Noel Studio for Academic Creativity. Now it has extended to its director, Dr. Russell (Rusty) Carpenter, who earned the Von Till Outstanding Newcomer Award presented by the National Association of Communication Centers (NACC).
The award is presented on the basis of innovation, scholarship and intellectual work, mentoring, and effectiveness, as well as participation in the National Communication Association (NCA) communication centers section and NACC conferences. The recipient must have been involved in communication center administration for no more than five years. Carpenter joined EKU in 2009, and the Noel Studio opened this fall.
“Dr. Carpenter is a scholar in the fullest sense of the word,” said Carrie Cooper, dean of libraries at EKU. “(He) brings to our campus not only knowledge and experience in learning centers, but a willingness to explore new avenues to help students develop their communication skills. He has become a leader on campus in the exploration and application of creativity in both teaching and learning.
“Eastern Kentucky University is poised to make significant contributions to the practical and scholarly literature on combining writing and communication center services under his leadership,” Cooper added. “Dr. Carpenter’s energy is contagious, and his enthusiasm and passion for his profession are admirable.”
This past year, Carpenter gave presentations about the Noel Studio at NCA and NACC conferences and has fielded calls from colleagues at colleges and universities nationwide about the Studio, which is nationally unique in the way it integrates services, all in a technologically sophisticated environment, designed to enhance students’ writing, speaking and research skills and inspire individual and collaborative learning. The Noel Studio embodies EKU’s Quality Enhancement Plan, which calls for the University to develop informed, critical and creative thinkers who communicate effectively.
In 2012, the Noel Studio will be showcased to a national audience when Eastern hosts the annual conference of the National Association of Communication Centers.
The Studio bears the name of Ron and Sherrie Lou Noel, of Union, Ky., whose $1 million-plus gift helped make the $2.8 million facility possible.
For more information about the Noel Studio, visit www.studio.eku.edu, or contact Carpenter at email@example.com or at 622-6229.
Three new members have also been recently added to the Board.
Sarah Warner, executive director of the Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Bluegrass, was appointed by President Whitlock to serve on the Board as a University representative. In addition to her work at the Ronald McDonald House, Warner has extensive experience in arts marketing and fundraising.
Virginia (Ginny) Rollins, co-owner of the Chestnut Tree Gallery in Richmond, was appointed by Richmond Mayor Connie Lawson to serve as a representative of the City of Richmond. Rollins also worked for a number of years as a teacher and counselor with the Madison County School System.
Diane Kerby has been appointed by Berea Mayor Steve Connelly to represent Berea.
Convened in 2007, the Center for the Performing Arts Board of Directors is comprised of 13 members, including representatives for the four Center partners: the cities of Berea and Richmond, Madison County and EKU.
The Society of Professional Journalists has named White Hall State Historic Site, home of newspaper publisher Cassius Marcellus Clay, as the 2011 National Historic Site in Journalism thanks in large part to the efforts of Eastern’s Department of Communication, which nominated Clay’s historic home for the honor.
Clay published an anti-slavery newspaper, The True American. He began printing in June 1845 in the heart of pro-slavery Kentucky despite threats to his life and business. Clay’s objective was “to use a state and National Constitutional right – the freedom of the press – to change national and state laws, so as, by a legal majority, to abolish slavery.”
On Tuesday, April 12, a year after the bicentennial of Clay’s birth, EKU’s Department of Communication and the University’s campus chapter of SPJ will host a special recognition ceremony at White Hall. National SPJ President Hagit Limor will speak at the 11 a.m. event, followed by a reception.
Through the paper, printed in Lexington, Clay anticipated the reaction anti-slavery editorial matter in his paper would bring. He fortified the newspaper office with Mexican lances, guns and two brass cannons. He continued to publish the newspaper from Cincinnati after a mob seized his press, type and equipment.
“While the publication period of The True American was short, the importance of that newspaper in the center of the pro-slavery region of Kentucky cannot be minimized,” Deborah Givens, EKU instructor of journalism and SPJ campus chapter adviser, said in her letter of support. “Clay not only risked property and social standing, but was also willing to risk his life to defend the principles of the First Amendment, as evidenced by his fortifying of the newspaper office. While the actual office no longer stands, White Hall was always the base of Clay’s struggles.”
White Hall, the home where Clay grew up and spent most of his adult life, was constructed over an older home built by his father in 1798 on 2,200 acres in northern Madison County. Restoration of the home was completed in 1971 with much of the furniture used by Clay and his family returned to the mansion. His books, desks, dueling pistols, letters and pages of The True American are on display in the home, which is maintained by Kentucky State Parks.
Having served as a state representative and later a captain during the Mexican War, Clay helped found the Republican Party and was appointed Minister to Russia by President Abraham Lincoln.
SPJ’s Historic Sites in Journalism program honors the people and places that have played important roles in U.S. journalism history. White Hall becomes only the second site in Kentucky, following the 1965 honor in Louisville for Henry Watterson.
Founded in 1909 as Sigma Delta Chi, SPJ promotes the free flow of information vital to a well-informed citizenry, works to inspire and educate the next generation of journalists, and protects First Amendment guarantees of freedom of speech and press.
In the undergraduate division, John Yeiser of Paris earned first place for his poster in the Ecology and Environmental Science Division.

Walker is the author of four poetry collections: “When Winter Come: the Ascension of York,” “Black Box,” “Buffalo Dance: the Journey of York,” and “Affrilachia.” He has received numerous writing honors, including a Lannan Literary Fellowship in Poetry.
Abbott is the Edgar-winning author of the novels “Die a Little,” “The Song Is You,” “Queenpin” and “Bury Me Deep.” Her upcoming novel, “The End of Everything,” debuts in July.
New York City–based writer Gaylord is the author of two novels: “The Reapers Are the Angels” (under the pen name Alden Bell) and “Hummingbirds,” published by HarperCollins in 2009.
Livingston’s “Ghostbread” won the AWP Book Prize for Nonfiction, and her work has appeared in some of the country's finest literary journals, including the Iowa Review.

Rather than lecture about how psychologists offer testimony in court trials, Dustin Wygant, assistant professor of psychology, arranged for a demonstration that involved several EKU students.
Several faculty colleagues who facilitate the University’s nationally ranked Mock Trial Team and local Circuit Court Judge William Clouse assisted as Wygant and graduate teaching assistant Jaime Anderson provided expert testimony regarding insanity for a murder case. Four EKU mock trial students, James Pennington, Deanna Davey, Katelyn Connor and Zachary Caldwell, served as prosecutors and defense attorneys in the case, which was adjudicated by Clouse.
Wygant, essentially, took case materials from some private practice cases and recreated a Richmond “murder” for which the defendant pled not guilty by reason of insanity.
“I drafted a police report, mental health records for the jail, and two court-ordered psychological evaluations (one offered by Wygant as a defense expert, and the other by a court-ordered psychiatrist, played by Anderson). Jaime and I provided direct and cross examination (by the mock trial students) regarding the facts of the case and our divergent positions about insanity for the defendant.”
During the class session prior to the field trip, the mock trial students came to Wygant’s classroom to select a jury of 12 students. The mock trial students developed and reviewed jury questionnaires and asked questions of the students. The 12 empaneled students listened to the testimony and deliberated a limited amount of time in the jury room.
“It took a lot of work to put together, but I believe it was a great experience for my PSY 466 students, my graduate student and the EKU mock trial students,” Wygant said.
The Madrigal Singers, under the direction of Dr. Sue Ellen Ballard, will join with Aramark Dining Services to present the Feastes on Friday, Dec. 10, and Saturday, Dec. 11, in the Grand Ballroom of the Keen Johnson Building. The doors open at 6 p.m. nightly, with seating beginning at 6:45. The first fanfare will sound at 7.
Tickets, $26 each, can be purchased in the Colonel 1 Office, Room 17 of the Powell Building. Visa and MasterCard reservations may be made by calling 622-2179.
The Singers, accompanied by faculty and student instrumentalists, will present the music for the event, which recreates the song, dance and festivities of 16th Century English madrigal dinners. Guests will also enjoy a five-course meal, prepared and served by Aramark Dining Services.
As part of the 4oth anniversary of the event, the Singers have written the script for this year, which incorporates the Princess seeking the King’s approval to allow men of the court to win her affection. Throughout the evening, vying troubadours will be eliminated through various events. Madrigal Singers alumni will be honored guests for the evening.
Proceeds from the annual community favorite benefit EKU’s Department of Music.
The program, free and open to the public, will be held at First Baptist Church, located on the Eastern Bypass in Richmond.
The program will include Marc-Antoine Charpentier’s Messe de Minuit pour Noël (Midnight Mass for Christmas based on French carols) and Benjamin Harlan’s Christmas Canticles.
EKU, the Southern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce and Corbin Independent Schools are partnering to stage an entrepreneurship fair at Corbin Intermediate School.
The event, scheduled for Friday, Dec. 10, from 12:45 to 2:30 p.m. at the school, is designed to introduce students to the possibility of entrepreneurship as a career choice.
Corbin Intermediate sixth-graders, working in teams of five or six, will conduct market surveys and develop business plans, and sell a product, possibly their own invention or innovation, or a service. Fifth-graders from Corbin Intermediate and third-graders from Corbin Elementary will earn pretend money (“dog dough”) as an academic and behavior reward from Nov. 29 through Dec. 10. The money may then be used to purchase goods and services at the fair.
Students will rent the gymnasium space for 10 percent of the profit from their businesses, using the “dog dough.” If their business fails to turn a profit, they owe nothing. Each business will be given $20 in “dog dough” for start-up money. Students are to complete a loan agreement, with a 1 percent interest fee, promising to repay the money.
“Providing this opportunity for the students while collaborating with EKU is a win-win situation,” said Jennie Watkins, sixth-grade teacher at Corbin Intermediate. “Our students need to understand economics as part of our core content. This opportunity gives them a real-world connection.”
In addition, John Surmont, founder of Sofcoast and a Corbin High School graduate, will address the sixth-graders on Wednesday, Dec. 1, at 1:15 p.m.
“This fair embodies many elements that help not only schools, but also communities,” said Kelli Moore, EKU educational extension agent for Whitley, Knox and Laurel counties. “Many economic development experts believe that for rural communities, entrepreneurship is becoming the driving force in economic development.”
Providing opportunities for youth today and in the future is a step in the right direction, Moore said.
“We hope students will develop a positive attitude toward entrepreneurship and the possibility of contributing to our local economy, instead of moving away when they reach adulthood. This is one step toward keeping our best and our brightest in the area.”
EKU Rides (www.rides.eku.edu), a social carpooling system powered by Zimride Inc., enables members of the University community to safely and easily find carpool partners by joining existing rides or adding rides of their own.
According to Markus Cross in the University’s Office of Public Relations, who has been using the system since it began in 2008, “it just makes sense.”
Users can create a profile directly on EKU Rides or log in using a Facebook account. EKU Rides can be accessed either from the “Green Initiatives” link at the bottom of the EKU homepage, from the EKU Parking Web page, and from various other Eastern Web pages.
The system offers a great deal of flexibility. Users may find different partners for different days of the week, and different semesters. Users are never committed to carpooling on any given day.
Cross typically switches driving responsibilities with another carpooler every day, splitting the cost of gas and car maintenance in half. If for some reason, one of them has another commitment – a doctor’s appointment, for example – they just pick up the carpooling schedule the next day.
“The benefits of carpooling outweigh any slight inconvenience that may be caused by the arrangement,” Cross said.
Carpooling has multiple benefits, including saving money, access to good parking spaces, helping the planet and building community.
A large portion of personal income is spent on cars, gasoline, and car maintenance. Carpooling can significantly reduce money spent on gas, reduce wear and tear on your car or defray costs of car maintenance. Some carpoolers may trade off doing the driving, as Cross does; others may charge passengers for rides.
Zimride has estimated that for every 1,000 users, the monetary savings exceed $50,000.
On EKU’s main campus, premium parking spaces are designated for faculty and staff carpoolers in the Martin and Jones lots (and in the Alumni Coliseum lot for students). More designated spaces were approved on Nov. 15.
Automobiles are one of the largest contributors to our individual carbon footprint and a significant component of EKU’s carbon footprint. Zimride has estimated that for every 1,000 users, the atmosphere is spared more than 80,000 pounds of carbon dioxide.
“In addition to the obvious cost savings and environmental benefits, EKU Rides can foster safety and trust and build community,” said Beverly Burrus, chair of the University’s Staff Council. “Through carpooling users can meet new people who are also members of the campus. This can be a way to make new friends and form valuable contacts.”
EKU Rides has four key features that enhance its safety:
- The signup process requires a valid EKU e-mail address.
- EKU Rides profiles and Facebook profiles allow users to see information about potential ride partners before sharing a ride.
- Users can leave feedback after sharing a ride and view feedback when selecting a ride partner.
- Users and university administrators can set privacy controls on who can see ride and personal information.
A recent look at the site showed nearly 200 posts currently active. Since its inception, EKU Rides has been used by approximately 800 people.
And there are many more potential users. More than 534 staff and faculty commute from Lexington, 282 commute from Berea, and 1,240 commute from other points north and south.
Check it out (www.rides.eku.edu) and sign up. No commitment is necessary and it may pay off in more ways than one.

Dr. Peter Kraska, a professor in the Department of Criminal Justice and Police Studies, also coordinates the graduate program in that department. He has published numerous books and journal articles since coming to EKU in 1994. His scholarship has most recently focused on developing criminal justice theory and examining trends in crime control. He continues to pursue his interest in the blurring of U.S. military and police forces, particularly in light of recent terrorist activities. This work has been featured heavily in the media, including news pieces featuring his research in The Economist, Washington Post, New York Times, National Public Radio, Peter Jennings's World News Tonight, and the Jim Lerher News Hour. Hear what Dr. Kraska has to say about his scholarship in his interview for the Focus on Scholarship webcast series here
Stephen Haggerty, Assistant Director TRiO Student Support Services
Stephen Haggerty, assistant director for TRiO Student Support Services, is featured in this ongoing series designed to allow EKU leaders and others in prominent positions to discuss their roles as well as campus issues. Haggerty holds a bachelor’s degree in interpersonal and public communication from Bowling Green (Ohio) State University and a master’s degree in communication studies (with emphases in interpersonal and instructional communication) from Marshall University. He has also completed doctoral coursework in interpersonal and instructional communication at the University of Kentucky. A NOVA professional since August 2005, Haggerty worked with the EKU Department of Communication from 1998 to 2004.
You’ve been an instructor for the QEP First Year Course since its inception. How has this experience shaped you as professional?
The Teaching the Foundations for Learning (GSD 101) three credit-hour course has so many connected benefits for me professionally. First, I believe it has made me a better teacher…focusing on how I deliver clear, accurate, significant lectures. I use the concepts every day I teach. Second, I believe it has given me an opportunity to meet fantastic, creative teachers of each new cohort of GSD 101 instructors. EKU should know we have some awesome teachers working with our incoming students! Finally, I believe it has impacted my role as Assistant Director of a TRiO Student Support Services project (NOVA) in that I am able to share my knowledge of critical and creative thinking at conferences, training seminars, and with my EKU family. This information helps my fellow TRiO and EKU colleagues impact their learners in powerful and fundamental ways! GSD 101 is an important course that increases my own critical and creative thinking skills (which transfer to my daily life) and helps me become a more educated and effective professional and advocate for Eastern Kentucky University and NOVA.
How has teaching GSD 101 impacted your students?
There is no doubt in my mind that this course has fundamentally impacted my students by helping them see how thinking things through can assist them in being successful in college and in life. We teach the basic Orientation concepts, but we do it through the funnel of critical and creative thinking, and we challenge the student to communicate this knowledge in an appropriate and effective manner. My students use what they learn in my class in other classes, in their jobs, with their families, and in their lives. Talk about transferability and durability! Teaching GSD 101 has increased my critical and creative thinking skills, and has made me a more powerful force in the lives of my learners. In turn, the NOVA Program participants are learning how to become the person others want to follow and that makes me proud of our NOVA Stars. GSD 101 helps our NOVAs shine even brighter.
You are also serving as a QE Coach for the campus. What has that experience been like?
Being a Quality Enhancement Coach for EKU has been an awesome opportunity and experience. I have had the honor of serving alongside incredible minds at this University – creative people…faculty and professional staff who have astounded me with their intellect, humility and ability to teach others how to be critical and creative thinkers who communicate effectively. QEP Director Kate Williams has been instrumental in the development of QE Coaches. I appreciate her leadership and vision. I am proud to be known as a QE Coach. It has been one of the highlights of my professional journey. And Mary Wilson (a QE Coach) even gave me a whistle!
How you are impacting student learning as a QE Coach?
For the first two years serving as a QE Coach, I worked with other coaches to create and implement training workshops and seminars for faculty. We trained faculty on the Paul and Elder Model of Critical Thinking as well as the SEEI Model of thinking things through (State, Elaborate, Exemplify, and Illustrate). These trainings gave faculty the tools they needed to teach these concepts to their own students. As a professional staff member, I also saw the incredible work my colleagues did with students on a daily basis, impacting them in fundamental and powerful ways. I thought, “We need to do this with staff, too,” so Kate and I decided my role would shift to assisting non-faculty professionals with learning the models and how to apply them to their interactions with students. After several training workshops and brown-bag sessions, Kate and I moved my coaching responsibility to where I am right now.
I have a dream QE Coaching role right now: I am facilitating a year and a half long professional learning community for 9 non-faculty professionals (called the Co-Curricular Learning Community). Dr. John Harley (Biology professor and Teaching & Learning Center Fellow) is my co-facilitator, and our CCLC participants are developing critical and creative thinking projects to implement in the Fall 2011 semester. I wish I had the space here to tell about each one of the CCLC team, but since I don’t, here is our team: Shawn Apostel, Markus Cross, Loni Crowe, Wanju Huang, Sharon Lee, Lisa Moore, Leslie Valley, Brandon Williams, and Ron Yoder. Working with these nine colleagues and John is an honor. Keep an eye out for some kind of formal event during the Fall 2011 semester where these nine incredible EKU colleagues will present their projects and how they impact student learning every day! Here’s the awesome part: I am impacting others who are impacting others!
