and grant will mean more American Indian principals,
The College of Education and Human Development
and United Tribes Technical College have been
awarded more than $1 million for a grant to
increase the number of American Indian principals
in the state. The United Tribes Technical College
Principal Leadership for American Indians in
Native Schools (UT-PLAINS) grant for $1,063,382
calls for recruiting 15 Native American educators
into UND’s graduate degree program in
educational leadership. The grant is funded
by the U.S. Department of Education through
its Office of Indian Education.
“We’re delighted to be partnering
with United Tribes Technical College on this
program, which we believe will have a profound
effect on the overall quality of public education
in this state, particularly within Native American
schools,” said President Charles Kupchella.
“Our exceptional educational leadership
department is well-positioned to implement this
grant. The result, in just a few short years,
will be 15 more highly educated public school
“This collaborative program addresses
the need to provide advanced training for people
already in the field. It has the potential for
complimenting and extending teacher training
and education done at the undergraduate level
by tribal colleges and mainstream colleges,”
said David Gipp, president of United Tribes
Technical College. “Advancing skill levels
and helping to attain credentials are practical
and useful ways of building the numbers of American
Indian educational leaders. It should result
in more people with greater expertise to apply
the standards of No Child Left Behind, and other
educational programs, whether they’re
in public or private schools or contract schools.”
The project will run through the summer of 2009.
In the first semester, four students have already
enrolled, but that number is expected to grow
as word about the project spreads.
Angie Koppang, assistant professor in UND’s
Department of Educational Leadership, will direct
“We took a look at the ratio of administrators,
especially principals, in Native schools,”
Koppang. “There was a shocking discovery
in the lack of administrators versus the number
of students and teachers. These communities
have a desperate need for additional, qualified
leaders, such as principals and superintendents.
This program will help, which in turn helps
The master’s program prepares graduates
for their first administrative position, such
as a school principal, and meets national standards
for administrative licensure in North Dakota
The doctoral program assists practicing administrators
seeking to further enhance their knowledge base
for different administrative roles, such as
Koppang said school leadership is important
in providing the support for improving student
achievement in schools. Students in the program
must be employed in a school district, hold
a bachelor’s degree in education and a
valid teaching license, meet the admission requirements,
and be Native American. This specialized course
of study requires full-time enrollment for one
academic year. At that point students will take
on a principal position. Year two focuses on
mentorship for administrators. For that the
department is working to identify role models
who are current administrators. Seminars for
both the student and mentor will be tailored
to specific needs.

seminar will consider GIS and wildlife management
The geography department will hold a seminar
by Scott Ralston, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
“GIS Applications in Wildlife Management”
will take place in 157 O’Kelly-Ireland
Hall Friday, April 21, at noon. All are welcome.
seminar focuses on cellular hypoxia
Wayne Zundel, director of radiation biology,
University of Louisville School of Medicine,
James Graham Brown Cancer Center, will give
a biology seminar at noon Friday, April 21,
in 114 Witmer Hall. His tribal affiliation is
Minneconjou Lakota, and his home reservation
is Cheyenne River, S.D.
Dr. Zundel will discuss “Mapping Cellular
Hypoxia and Reperfusion-sensing pathways in
His research program involves numerous lines
of investigation into the role of tumor oxygenation
in tumor metabolism, disease progression, and
therapeutic efficacy. Because tumoral responses
to fluctuating oxygen levels are relatively
unique to solid tumors, targeting these responses
therapeutically will lead to specific killing
of those tumor areas which are most resistant
to current therapeutic paradigms.
The seminar is hosted by Diane Darland.
talk focuses on photocatalytic oxidation
The physics department will hold a colloquium
at 4 p.m. in 209 Witmer Hall Friday, April 21,
with Darrin Muggli (chemical engineering), who
will present “Photocatalytic Oxidation
on TiO2: Reactions and Reactors.”
Several methods of identifying and quantifying
surface species and active sites will be discussed,
such as transient reaction techniques, temperature-programmed
desorption, isotope labeling, and diffuse reflectance
infrared Fourier transform spectroscopy. Reactions
of model compounds such as formic acid, methyl
formate, and acetic acid will serve as examples.
In addition, recent research on developing improved
photocatalytic reactor designs will be presented.
Refreshments will be served at 3:30 p.m. in
215 Witmer Hall.
studies holds Friday colloquium
Mark Sykes, director of the Planetary Science
Institute in Tucson, Ariz., will be the guest
speaker at the space studies colloquium series
Friday, April 21, at 5 p.m. in 210 Clifford
Hall. In his presentation, “The Origins
and Evolution of the Interplanetary Dust Complex:
New Insights from Spitzer Space Telescope,”
Sykes addresses the origin and evolution of
dust in the solar system. He studies cometary
dust trails and the collisional production of
dust in the asteroid belt, primarily using spacebased
infrared telescopes. He is also interested in
the compositional gradient in the early solar
system and the heating and dynamical processes
by which that gradient evolved. Sykes is a member
of the Dawn Science Team, which will orbit two
of three surviving terrestrial protoplanets
in the main asteroid belt: Vesta and Ceres.
Sykes will study how the presence or absence
of water shaped the early histories of those
two bodies; Asteroid number 4388 is named in
honor of him.
Sykes received his law degree in 1998 and his
Ph.D. in 1986 within the Department of Planetary
Sciences from the
University of Arizona where he is currently
the Director of Planetary Sciences. He is a
member of the NASA-NSF Astronomy and Astrophysics
Advisory Committee, chair of the NASA Planetary
Data System Working Group, and a member of the

arts produces psychological thriller
Theatre arts will present the psychological
thriller Equus, by Peter Shaffer, as the final
play of the season. Equus revolves around the
inexplicable violent actions of a young man
and the psychiatrist who tries to help him.
Directed by Gaye Burgess (theatre arts), Equus
is a stylistic mystery that deals with adult
issues and contains nudity.
Performances continue each night through Saturday,
April 29, at the Burtness Theater. All performances
begin at 7:30 p.m.
Equus, which opened on Broadway in 1974 and
ran until 1977, won five Tony Awards, including
Best Play of 1974. Its original cast starred
Anthony Hopkins and Frances Sternhagen. Allegedly
based on a true story, Shaffer’s play,
structured as a mystery, takes place in England.
The play presents the dilemma of a boy who blinds
six horses with a spike. Sentenced to a mental
hospital, the boy is treated by a middle-aged
psychiatrist who gradually discovers the pitfalls
of modern-day psychiatry and the boy’s
own notion of worship and natural forces. Complex
and thought-provoking, Equus remains as riveting
and intense as its premiere 30 years ago. A
film version of Equus came out in 1977, starring
Richard Burton as the psychiatrist.

Talk to Her, directed by Pedro Almodovar, is a surprising,
original, and quietly moving story of the spoken and
unspoken bonds that unite the lives and loves of two
couples. Two men almost meet while watching a dance
performance, but their lives are irrevocably entwined
by fate. They meet later at a private clinic where
one is the caregiver for Alicia, a beautiful dance
student who lies in a coma. The other arrives at the
private clinic to visit his girlfriend Lydia, a famous
matador also rendered motionless. As the men stand
vigil over the women they love, the story unfolds
in flashback and flash forward as the lives of the
four are further entwined and their relationships
move toward a surprising conclusion.

Partnerships for Innovation program preproposals
The National Science Foundation has issued
a solicitation for proposals for Partnerships
for Innovation for FY 2006 (Program Solicitation
NSF 06-550). The goals are to: 1)stimulate transformation
of knowledge created by the research and education
enterprise into innovations that create new
wealth, build strong local, regional and national
economies and improve the national well-being;
2)broaden participation of all types of academic
institutions and all citizens in NSF activities
to meet the broad workforce needs of the national
innovation enterprise; and 3)catalyze or enhance
enabling infrastructure necessary to foster
and sustain innovation in the long-term. To
develop a set of ideas for pursuing these goals,
this competition will support 10-15 partnerships
among academe, the private sector, and state/local/federal
government that will explore new approaches
to support and sustain innovation.
Proposals may include any one or a combination
of the following activities: 1) research, technology
transfer, and/or commercialization; 2) workforce
education and/or training; and 3) establishing
the infrastructure to accomplish or enable innovation.
At a minimum, proposed partnerships must include
academic institutions as the lead and private
sector organizations as partners. Partnerships
that also include state/local government entities
are strongly encouraged. Awards may be up to
$600,000, with award durations of two or three
Because each institution is limited to one proposal
as the lead institution, and may be a non-leading
partner on only one other proposal, UND will
need to determine which proposal may be submitted
if there is more than one proposed. Please contact
Research Development and Compliance (RD&C)
by May 1, if you are planning a proposal, 777-4280
or email@example.com. If more than
one proposal is planned, RD&C will require
interested parties to submit preproposals for
internal review. Letters of intent to NSF are
due June 28.

Letter will become twice-weekly online publication
On May 15, the weekly University Letter and
the daily (or more) mass e-mails will be combined
into a twice-weekly e-mail and online news service
sent to every e-mail holder on campus. This
will actually increase the number of people
who receive University Letter, make access to
news more convenient and timely, and reduce
duplication. It will also eliminate confusion
between University Letter and the daily mass
mails, as well as reduce e-mail clutter.
You will receive an e-mail detailing University
Letter contents, with each story linked to the
online edition of University Letter. Just click
on the title of an article that interests you
to be taken to that story. You’ll also
have the option to print just one story or the

charge cards will no longer be used. Departments
will be provided with the original invoice at

be attached to the purchasing card record form
that is sent to accounting services. The Bookstore
will not have a copy of the invoice, so if the

One lists features
Hear about one family’s experience with
foreign adoption on the next edition of Studio
One on Channel 3 in Grand Forks. China has a
one child policy that forces parents to pay
fines for a second child. Families often abandon
their children, and they are adopted by parents
in other countries. Meet one family who traveled
to China to pick up a baby girl on Studio One.
Also on the show this week, find out what it’s
like being a twin. The birthrate of twins has
doubled since the early 1970s due to fertility
treatments. Twins will explain how they feel
about this increase on Studio One.
Studio One is an award-winning news and information
program produced at the University of North
Dakota Television Center.
The program airs live on UND Channel 3 on Thursdays
at 5 p.m. Re-broadcasts can be seen at 7 a.m.,
noon, 7 p.m. and 11 p.m. daily and on Saturdays

volunteers sought for attention, problem-solving
We are recruiting children between 7 and 14
years of age to participate in a study of the
effect of time of day on tests of planning,
problem solving, sustained attention, and reading
comprehension. The study takes between three
and 3 1/2 hours to complete, and will occur
9 a.m. to noon or 3 to 6 p.m. on weekends, after
school, or on school holidays at the University.
Your child will be asked to complete several
measures of memory, reading, and problem solving.
You, the parent, will be asked to complete an
interview regarding your child’s current
behavior, and several short questionnaires about
your child’s typical behavior and sleeping
patterns. Your child will be paid $25 for participation
in the study.
The scores from your child’s testing will
be completely confidential and will not be associated
with his or her name. We are interested in comparing
group differences tested at various times of
day. Children should not have a psychological
diagnosis or a diagnosis of ADHD and/or a reading
disorder. We are also looking for children who
have been diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome.
Children who participate must not be taking
any medication at the time of testing. If you
are and your child are interested in scheduling
a time to participate or in finding out more
about the study, please call me at 777-3260.

is National Military Appreciation Month
May is National Military Appreciation Month.
Because most holidays commemorating historical
military events have become little more than
three-day weekends lacking focus on their original
purpose, this month reminds us of the sacrifices
and the history we as Americans have been privileged
to participate in throughout the past 230 years.
More than 200 UND students have served in this
current war – get involved with their
departure, deployment, and return. It is often
the return back into the “norms”
that is the most difficult transition to make.
Please, express your thanks. The sky truly is
