sends second appeal to NCAA
The University has filed a new appeal to the
NCAA regarding the Aug. 5 decision related to
the use of American Indian nicknames by some
colleges and universities during post-season
play. The appeal was sent Nov. 4 to the NCAA
executive committee. UND is following the appeals
process outlined by the NCAA.
President Charles Kupchella characterized the
appeal as “more analytical and legalistic,”
and said the appeal is different from the first
one in other ways, as well.
The appeal says the NCAA executive committee
overstepped its authority, and that the NCAA
has violated its own contract with its members,
“We’re asking the executive committee
to come here to see for themselves,” said
Kupchella. He said the University is also asking
that decision announced Aug. 5 “not be
applied to us until we have exhausted the appeals
for some time after that.”
Kupchella said the University continues to try
to work with the tribes in the state on resolving
issues related to UND’s nickname and logo.
“We do all that we do here with class.
We do more here for American Indian students
and American Indian people on reservations than
all of the other institutions already exempted
by the NCAA combined,” Kupchella said.
You can find the full appeal at www.und.edu.
formally opens National Suborbital Education
and Research Center
The University, in partnership with NASA, formally
opened the newly created National Suborbital
Education and Research Center (NSERC) Nov. 7.
The opening included a tour of NASA’s
McDonnell Douglas DC-8 Airborne Science Laboratory.
Invited speakers were North Dakota Gov. John
Hoeven, Sen. Byron Dorgan, Rep. Earl Pomeroy,
NASA Assistant Associate Administrator for Science
Paul Hertz, and U.S. Air Force Brigadier General
Under a cooperative agreement with NASA, the
University will operate the space agency’s
DC-8 flying science laboratory, which will carry
international teams of scientists on global
missions to conduct experiments and study changes
in Earth’s surface and atmosphere.
The DC-8 was delivered to UND in September and
will be housed at Grand Forks Air Force Base.
The National Suborbital Education and Research
Center is a unit of UND’s Northern Great
Plains Center for People and the Environment.
“It’s a privilege to be entrusted
with the operation of this national treasure,”
said Center Director George Seielstad. “We
intend to enable the nation’s best scientists
to acquire new knowledge about Earth’s
environment so that all of us will learn how
to be better stewards of the planet that nurtures
“I can’t think of a better place
in the country to base the DC-8 flying laboratory
than UND and the Grand Forks Air Force Base,”
said Sen. Dorgan, who first teamed UND with
NASA and has earmarked more than $10 million
since 2000 for UND to work with the space agency.
“We have formed a unique partnership here
that builds on the excellent aerospace program
at UND and the research needs of NASA. Basing
NASA’s DC-8 is further evidence that the
Red River Valley Research Corridor is thriving,
and using federal funds to continue this growth
is a wise investment for North Dakota and for
the entire nation.”
“The partnership between UND and NASA
provides excellent research opportunities for
our students and brings new, high paying jobs
to Grand Forks,” said Gov. Hoeven. “This
is exactly what our Centers of Excellence program
is about. We’re pleased and proud to be
home to this remarkable mission and project.”
“I am ecstatic about the super partnership
this project represents — between UND
and both NASA and the world’s entire atmospheric
science community,” said President Charles
Kupchella. “Having my own academic roots
in environmental science, I am even more proud
than I would be otherwise in seeing my university
involved in this direct way in stewardship of
the global environment.”
The DC-8 is NASA’s premier research aircraft.
The highly modified plane can carry 30,000 pounds
of scientific instruments and equipment, and
fly at altitudes from 1,000 to 42,000 feet for
up to 12 hours. Data gathered by the DC-8 have
been used for numerous scientific studies ranging
from archaeology to atmospheric chemistry.
fuel cell-powered ice resurfacer unveiled
The first-ever hydrogen fuel cell-powered ice
resurfacer – a machine that smooths the
surface of ice skating and hockey rinks –
made its world debut at the Energy & Environmental
Research Center Nov. 7. The unveiling was part
of the Hydrogen Energy Action Summit sponsored
by Sen. Byron Dorgan.
The ice resurfacer, called the eP-Ice Bear,
is being developed by ePower Synergies, Inc.,
a Cordova, Ill.-based company that develops
transportation systems utilizing clean, sustainable
energy, and the Resurfice Corporation of Elmira,
Ontario, manufacturer of Olympia and Ice Bear
brand ice refinishers. The eP-Ice Bear ice resurfacer
is ideal for indoor use because of its zero-emission
powertrain that produces only water as a by-product.
The EERC’s National Center for Hydrogen
Technology is supporting the development of
the system and leading the initial demonstration
of the technology.
“The EERC’s National Center for
Hydrogen Technology is the cornerstone of our
hydrogen efforts,” said Director Gerald
Groenewold. “We currently have $8 million
in contracts funded through federal agencies
and numerous private sector partners to support
the development of technologies for hydrogen
production and fuel cells. We anticipate up
to $50 million in contracts in the near term.”
“We think it is very appropriate to debut
the EP-Ice Bear at this event, as it shows what
Sen. Dorgan has been saying: that the hydrogen
revolution is under way,” said Bruce Wood,
president of ePower. “This development
of a near-commercial ice refinisher underscores
the fact that the technology is ready, the hydrogen
is available, and companies are developing products
The vehicle is anticipated to be introduced
to the public in the near future at the Ralph
Engelstad Arena. After demonstrating the eP-Ice
Bear and its fueling system in North Dakota,
ePower Synergies will then exhibit the vehicle
at the 2005 Electric Drive Transportation Association
Conference in Vancouver, British Columbia.
In addition to ePower Synergies and the EERC,
other project partners include Ontario-based
HyMotion; Alberta-based Edynetek Corporation;
Nuvera Fuel Cells, Cambridge, Mass.; and the
U.S. Department of Energy National Energy Technology

Dakota Museum of Art to hold live art auction
The North Dakota Museum of Art, the state’s
official art museum, will hold its seventh annual
Autumn Art Auction Saturday, Nov. 12. This year’s
co-chairs are Carolyn and Lin Glimm. The evening
begins at 6:30 p.m. with music by Jazz on Tap
and appetizers donated by the Bronze Boot, Suite
49, Whitey’s, the Museum Café,
and the Blue Moose.
The live auction starts at 8 p.m. Tickets are
$25 in advance and $30 at the door.
According to Museum Director Laurel Reuter,
“people don’t come to the auction
looking for bargains but to acquire works to
hand down to their grandchildren and great grandchildren.”
All of the work in the auction is personally
selected by Reuter. Over the course of several
months she visits studios throughout the region.
“I am interested not only in selecting
work by our best artists but the best piece
I can find by each of those artists. This year
we have increased the number of works in the
auction, and we have extended the price range
in both directions. There is a series of paintings
by Ian August, a young Canadian painter, that
could sell for as little as $50 each. We also
have several works in the $5,000 range. “These
include two outdoor stone garden sculptures
by Zoran Mojsilov, an artist slated to have
a solo exhibition in the North Dakota Museum
of Art next year.”
The 48 pieces of art are now on display at the
Museum and online at www.ndmoa.com,
or may be viewed in the catalog. They will be
auctioned by Burton Onofrio, who has run art
auctions for 26 years in Rochester, Minn.
Absentee bidding is possible by mail or telephone.
Call the Museum at (701) 777-4195 to order tickets,
receive an auction catalog, or register for
absentee bidding. Ticket price includes wine
and hors d’oeuvres beginning at 6:30 pm.
Museum Director Laurel Reuter will preview the
works and lead an informal discussion about
them and their creators on Thursday, Nov. 10,
at 7 p.m. This event is free and open to the

to discuss pharmacists, contraception, religion
Can pharmacists refuse to dispense
birth control medication based on their religious
beliefs? Rachel Vogelstein, Equal Justice Works
Fellow from the National Women’s Law Center,
will address this topic in her lecture on “Religious
Refusal Clauses and Women’s Health: Pharmacist
Refusals to Dispense Contraception.”
The lecture will be held Monday, Nov. 14, at
5 p.m. in the UND School of Law, Baker Courtroom.
This event is presented by the Law Women’s
Caucus and is free and open to the public.
According to the National Women’s Law
Center, North Dakota has not recently addressed
this issue; however, increasing reports of pharmacists
refusals to fill birth control prescriptions,
including the morning after pill, based on religious
beliefs and not legitimate medical or professional
concerns is increasing close to home. Pharmacist
refusals have surfaced in Minnesota, and South
Dakota has already passed a pharmacist refusal
law allowing pharmacists to refuse to fill prescriptions
because of their personal beliefs.

presents Sylvia, life from a dog’s perspective
A dog is often considered “man’s
best friend.” No more is this true than
in A.R. Gurney’s sweet and gentle comedy,
Sylvia, the theatre department’s second
offering for the theatrical season. The play
revolves around the title character, Sylvia,
a homeless street-smart dog who is adopted by
a middle-aged New Yorker, Greg. A mix of lab
and poodle, Sylvia, supplies Greg with an escape
from the doldrums and stress of his financial
marketing job. The two gradually become inseparable,
much to the consternation of Greg’s wife,
Kate, who views Sylvia as a threat to their
marriage. The relationship between Greg and
Kate becomes precarious until, after a series
of hilarious mishaps and complications, Sylvia
eventually becomes part of the family.
Sylvia originally premiered Off-Broadway at
the Manhattan Theatre Club in 1995 with Sarah
Jessica Parker (of “Sex and the City”)
as the title character, and was the most produced
play in the country during the 1996-97 season.
Directed by theatre chair Kathleen McLennan,
Sylvia is a delightful, engaging, and ultimately
heart-warming play for all ages.
Following Sylvia will be the musical, You’re
A Good Man, Charlie Brown, in late February,
and wrapping up the season in early spring will
be the psychological and gripping thriller,
Performances for Sylvia will begin in the Burtness
Lab Theatre Tuesday, Nov. 15, and will run through
Saturday, Nov. 19. Tickets are $12 for adults
and $6 for students with IDs. For ticket information
and reservations call the box office at 777-2587.
All performances begin at 7:30 p.m. Free reserved
parking is available.
session focuses on journal editing
The Writing Across the Curriculum
(WAC) noon discussion group Wednesday, Nov. 16, will

editor of Victorian Literature and Culture; Kim Porter,
incoming editor of Oral History Review; and Ric Ferraro,
executive editor for Journal of Psychology and Journal
of General Psychology. Other faculty with editorial
experience will also participate in the discussion.

involved in editing at some point in the future. However,
writers who’d like to know more about how editors
view (and do) their work are also invited to be part
of the conversation.
If you’re an editor, a would-be-editor, or an
interested writer, please sign up in advance to reserve
your free lunch (provided by instructional development).

may receive vendor registration letter
The North Dakota vendor registry
office is sending letters to vendors asking
them to go to the North Dakota vendor registry
web site to complete and return a vendor application.
These letters are periodically sent so information
in the state database can be verified. Vendors
will continue to receive these letters until
they complete and return the application.
Accounting services would like to point out
that the state vendor registry office considers
individuals to be “vendors” also.
So individuals may receive letters if they have
received a reimbursement from UND or any other
state agency. If you get calls about these letters
(some vendors/individuals may contact your department
since you initiated their payments), please
refer them to the e-mail address or phone number
that is listed in the vendor registry letter.
