1. Nominate staff for Excellence in University Service Awards
Members of the Marquette community are encouraged to submit nominations for the University Excellence in University Service Awards Program. Nomination deadline is Friday, Feb. 15.
The Excellence in University Service Award Program is intended to recognize individuals for their contributions to the essential work of Marquette at the highest level of excellence. Candidates should be nominated based on meritorious service that is above and beyond the duties normally assigned to their positions. Nominees should demonstrate Ignatian ideals such as “magis” — a striving for excellence in all they do — and “cura personalis” — a personal concern and respect for others.
Criteria for the service award include:
• Candidates must have a minimum of five years of consecutive full-time MU service in the employee group from which selected and in which they are presently serving.
• Administrator candidates must have at least 50 percent of their time devoted to administrative duties.
• Self-nominations and nominations by members of the Joint Committee on Employee Recognition cannot be considered.
• Faculty members and members of the Joint Committee cannot be candidates.
Two support staff and two administrators will be selected for 2007. Plaques will be presented to this year’s award recipients at a ceremony on Tuesday, April 15. The names of the recipients will also be added to a permanent plaque in the Henke Lounge of the Alumni Memorial Union.

2. Guidelines for Way Klingler Faculty Development funds available
Applications for the two types of Way Klingler Faculty Development Program grants for Marquette faculty are available online. The program features a series of awards intended to advance research and scholarship. Applications are for the 2008-09 academic year.
Way Klingler Fellowships are given to full-time regular faculty at the associate or full professor rank with significant scholarship and higher potential. Two Way Klingler Fellowships will be awarded in 2008, one each in science and humanities. The science fellow will receive $50,000 annually for three years and the humanities fellow will receive $20,000 annually for three years. The fellows will be chosen by the designated selection committee. The application deadline for submission by the deans is Feb. 29, 2008.
Way Klingler Young Scholar Awards support promising young scholars in critical stages of their careers. Up to four awards will be given for 2008-09 to full-time regular junior faculty in the three years following their third-year review. The awards of up to $32,000 are intended to fund $2,000 in operating cost and cover up to 50 percent of salary to afford the recipient a one-semester sabbatical. Individuals will be selected by the Committee on Research. The application deadline is Feb. 8, 2008.
3. Marquette holding free theatre performance for festival selection
Marquette University will hold a free public performance of Poor Tom on Monday, Jan. 7, at 7 p.m. at the Evan P. and Marion Helfaer Theatre in preparation for the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and seats are available on a first-come basis. No reservation is necessary.
Poor Tom is one of three new full-length productions invited to perform at the festival by a selection committee composed of artists and academics. New plays are selected based on the quality of the script and the production.
More than 1,500 students and faculty are expected to attend the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival for Region III, which includes university and college theatre programs in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio and Wisconsin. The festival, which is co-hosted by Marquette University and Cardinal Stritch University, includes new play development, an acting scholarship competition and workshops in theatre practice. Student actors, playwrights, designers and technicians have their works reviewed and selected for participation. The best examples of theatrical work from the festival will be selected to participate in a nationwide festival in April.
Poor Tom was created as by Marquette students and faculty with Patrick Sutton of the Gaiety School of Acting, Dublin, beginning in August 2006. What became Poor Tom was subsequently performed by the students in Dublin and at Marquette.
4. The Frog Prince to be performed Sunday
The Department of Performing Arts’ Annual Theatre for Young Audiences performance will feature playwright David Mamet’s take on The Frog Prince. The curtain rises at 2:30 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 13, at the Tony & Lucille Weasler Auditorium.
A twist on the classic Brothers Grimm fairy tale, the Old Peasant Woman turns the Prince into a frog after he refuses to give up a bouquet of flowers. The Prince and his Servingman set out to find the only person able to undo his spell: the Milkmaid. Along the way, the Prince faces an old enemy, changes in his Kingdom and a newfound friendship.
Tickets for The Frog Prince are $10 and can be purchased by contacting the Helfaer theatre box office, 8-7504.
5. Law School holding information session
The Law School will host an information session for prospective students Friday, Jan. 11, beginning at 12:30 p.m. at the Law School, Sensenbrenner Hall 245.
The session will provide information about admissions and financial aid policies and procedures, curriculum and intellectual and student life. Each session will last about one hour and will be followed by a brief tour led by a current law student. No RSVP is needed.
