Theisz publishes chapter in the book Powwow - top

R.D. Theisz
Theisz

A chapter by Dr. R.D. Theisz, professor of English and American Indian Studies and chair of the Department of Humanities at Black Hills State University, was recently included in the book Powwow, published by the University of Nebraska press.

In the chapter, “Putting Things in Order. The Discourse of Tradition,” Theisz uses recent postmodern theory such as Lyotard’s and Said’s notions of metanarratives and micronarratives to argue for the voice of tradition “not so much as epigonic nostalgia but rather as providing a significant strain of the Lakota metanarrative celebrating the centripetal connective affirmation of tradition, particularly as expressed in the powwow.”

Theisz received his doctorate in literature from New York University in 1972. He has been teaching at BHSU since 1977.

BHSU student and faculty conduct research on flying squirrels and fungi - top

A Black Hills State University faculty member and student, in collaboration with the staff members of the U.S. Forest Service, are conducting groundbreaking research on the diets of flying squirrels in the Black Hills.

Callie Ackerman, a senior biology/environmental science major from Hulett, Wyo., spent a major part of the summer working on the research. Dr. Audrey Gabel, emeritus professor of biology at BHSU, and Elizabeth Krueger, U.S. Forest Service, Spearfish ranger district, are co-principal investigators for the project. Dr. Mark Gabel, emeritus professor of biology at BHSU, and Scott Weins, from the U.S. Forest Service are also participating in the research.   

The research is being funded by the South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

According to A. Gabel, it has been reported from research in the Pacific Northwest that flying squirrels include hypogeous (underground) fungi in their diet. These fungi, which are sometimes called truffles and false truffles, are much smaller than the species which are highly valued for eating.

The BHSU research is the first documentation of the presence of hypogeous fungi in scat (excrement) from flying squirrels captured in the Black Hills. The research also documents the presence of hypogeous fungi in the Black Hills of South Dakota. 

Gabel, a fungi expert in the region, knew that the flying squirrels were attracted to fungi that live underground and wanted to find out if the squirrels included the underground fungi in their diet. Scat from squirrels which were trapped in the northern Black Hills was collected and evaluated by light and scanning electron microscopy to determine diet.

According to the researchers, more than 90 percent of the scat was comprised of hypogeous fungi, and the intact spores of these fungi permitted identification of the fungi eaten by the squirrels. Seven different genera were identified from 25 collections of scat.

The study also included digging and recovering fruiting bodies (sporocarps) of the fungi. Five different genera were identified from 17 collections. Physical characteristics of the sites and inventoried vegetation were mapped using Geographic Information Systems (GIS) software.

Ackerman, who is also active on the track team at BHSU, says the research opportunity taught her many things. She says one of the most important things she learned while working on this project is how the research process really works.

Ackerman, who has always enjoyed being outdoors and is planning a career in science that will allow her to do outdoor science research, says she liked going in the Hills to dig for fungi, using the GIS to map locations and working with the Forest Service personnel to trap the squirrels.

“I’ve always been interested in working in the outdoors and like to work with mammals so this research project was perfect for me,” Ackerman said. 

Now that the data gathering part of the research is finished, Ackerman is working with Gabel to write a paper and create a presentation about their research.

At the encouragement of her professors, Ackerman is making plans to attend graduate school after she graduates from BHSU in May. 

“I’m from a ranch, and I always liked learning about plants and animals. I’ve just kept building on that interest while in college,” Ackerman says. She’s considering a career in research.

Callie Ackerman, a senior biology/environmental science major, demonstrates the use of the scanning electron microscope which was one of several tasks she completed this summer as she conducted research on the diets of flying squirrels in the Black Hills. The student, along with Dr. Audrey Gabel, professor emeritus and regional fungi expert, worked in collaboration with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks to conduct the research.

BHSU hosts a presentation about Black Hills Vision - top

More than 60 university and community members attended a presentation about Black Hills Vision which was hosted by Black Hills State University this week.

The mission of the Black Hills Vision is to invest in the development of new job creation and an opportunity environment to expand economic development to the Black Hills region. The Black Hills Vision board consists of 114 investors including several Black Hills communities, the governor and area businesses.

Dr. Priscilla Romkema, associate professor and chair of the department of management and marketing at BHSU, welcomed the attendees. Speakers included, Bryan Walker, director of Spearfish Economic Development; Mike Derby, Black Hills Vision president; Mark Merchen, Black Hills Vision, executive director; Jerry Krambeck, Spearfish mayor; and Dave Snyder, Science and Technology Authority executive director. The speakers summarized the history of the Black Hills Vision group and highlighted its goals which include long-term ventures to improve the economic development of the entire Black Hills region. Currently the main projects undertaken by the group include business incubation on the School of Mines and Technology campus, development of the Air Service Task Force, supporting Ellsworth Air Force Base, housing development and finding ways to maximize opportunities with the development of a science lab at Homestake.

“What’s good for one will be good for all,” Mark Merchant stressed, “We are working together to create opportunities for the entire region. The bottom line is that is to create careers for those with Dakota roots who want to stay or would like to come back this area.”

Snyder presented an update concerning recent developments for the science lab at Homestake. He called the opportunities unlimited.

“I don’t think any of us can fully anticipate the benefit of this lab. The energy surrounding it and what it will achieve for the state is phenomenal,” Snyder said.

In addition to the possibility of massive multi-disciplinary experiments, Snyder noted that BHSU is making plans to maximize educational venues including classrooms, labs, science camps and educational workshops at the lab. Ben Sayler, director of the Center for the Advancement of Math and Science Education (CAMSE) at BHSU, is directly involved in developing educational opportunities.

“The opportunities are endless,” Snyder said.  

Dr. Priscilla Romkema, associate professor and chair of the department of management and marketing at BHSU, welcomed more than 60 people to the presentation about a local group, Black Hills Vision. Speakers include, (seated, left to right) Bryan Walker, director of Spearfish Economic Development; Mike Derby, Black Hills Vision president; Mark Merchen, Black Hills Vision, executive director; and Jerry Krambeck, Spearfish mayor. Dave Snyder, Science and Technology Authority executive director, also spoke at the meeting.

Concert Band and Chamber Players will present fall concert - top

The Black Hills State University concert band and chamber players will present their fall concert Monday, Nov. 7 at 7:30 p.m. in the recital hall of Clare and Josef Meier Hall.

The percussion ensemble, trumpet quartet and clarinet quartet will start the concert followed by the band performance.

The band will be playing music from Europe and the U.S., including the premiere performance of Brahms Soup, written by Christopher Hahn, the group’s director. Hahn wrote the piece with the assistance of a BHSU Faculty Research Grant.

According to Hahn, “Brahms Soup is a chaconne: a set of variations on a harmonic progression. This progression was written by Brahms for a chaconne in his Fourth Symphony. I use rhythmic and melodic characteristics of Brahms’ music as well as older and newer ideas. It is also like a quodlibet in that I use a few other melodies for humorous effect.”

The concert will also include music inspired by the Chinese immigrants that helped Union Pacific build the transcontinental railroad through the Sierra Nevada mountains, a lighthearted look at Oktoberfest, and music that deals with the transformation and rebirth in our life cycle.

The concert is open to the public at no charge. For more information contact Hahn at 642-6888.


BHSU graduate hired to recruit students in eastern South Dakota - top

Kelly Meeker, a 2004 graduate of Black Hills State University, who is originally from the Sioux Falls area and attended O’Gorman High School, has been hired by BHSU to recruit students in the eastern region of the state.

Meeker, who earned a human resources degree and now works as a marketing representative for Dakota Beverage in Sioux Falls will be contacting prospective students via phone, emails and mail. In addition, he will be available to meet with students to answer their questions regarding BHSU.

“Black Hills State University has a lot to offer students. I know from my experience that BHSU students receive individual one-on-one attention from instructors. I never felt like just a number at BHSU. I know that each professor cared about my education and encouraged me to succeed,” Meeker says.

He added that BHSU is a natural choice due to the scenic area, friendly atmosphere and recreational opportunities.

“I believe BHSU’s location in the Northern Black Hills gives the university a huge advantage. I enjoyed my surroundings at BHSU, and that, combined with the fact that I knew a majority of the students and felt comfortable visiting teachers and asking for their assistance, created an excellent educational experience for me,” Meeker says.

Meeker also believes his education prepared him for the job market.

“In my field today it is very important to have good communication skills,  and I feel my classes at BHSU provided exceptional preparation because the small class sizes encouraged many class presentations and group projects,” Meeker says.

Faculty Senate minutes - top

The Faculty Senate met Wednesday, Sept. 21 at 3:30 p.m.

Members present were President Roger Miller, Steve Andersen, Sharon Strand, Dan Bergey, Curtis Card, Tim Martinez, Christine Shearer-Cremean, Verona Beguin, Jim Hesson, Micheline Hickenbotham, Roberta Sago, and Peter Lemke (Student Senate representative). Also present were guests George Earley, Dean Myers, Laura Colmenero-Chilberg, and Kathleen Parrow.

Miller called the meeting to order.

Myers and Earley answered questions the senate had on various campus concerns. Miller asked if the Faculty Senate would have a role in the process of developing and approving the new Standards Document. Myers answered that the deans and department chairs are responding now to the draft document. It will be disseminated to all faculty, along with the documents developed at SDSU. The SDSU documents are to be used as a model and to be sure our document meets the depth, breadth and rigor we want in our document. Shearer-Cremean asked if given the inequities in pay and duties in the state system, should we try to use the same standards as SDSU in an effort to raise the status and salaries or will that have any effect. Myers did not think that that would be likely to happen but did suggest that our document should reflect our local situation. Strand asked if part of the role of the senate will be to review the final document. Myers said that that decision has not been made yet but he will discuss this with the other academic vice presidents to see how this was handled at the other state schools. Martinez asked what role the faculty should be playing in this process. Myers said that he thought the chairs were working with the faculty to develop their responses to the draft document. He was surprised to hear that there has been no input from the business faculty or most departments in the College of Arts and Sciences. The College of Education has had several meetings to discuss the document. He indicated that this would be a topic of discussion at the next Council of Deans meeting. The document should be ready by early October and will be sent then to all faculty for comment. Martinez asked who has been working on the draft document. Myers reported that the original work had been done by himself and Kristi Pearce. Hesson noted that this will be a living document, with ample chance to make changes as needed in the future. Myers said that the final document will not be forwarded to the Board of Regents (BOR) until all faculty have had a chance to see it and provide input. The plan is for it to be implemented by fall 2006. Once it is finished, it will go into effect immediately and may not be radically different from what we have been using. We will not be held accountable for two different forms of the document for our evaluations.

Myers asked for senate input on the new Student Opinion Survey (SOS). He stated that Perry has charged the AEC committee to find another standardized document to use statewide so we may not be using our old SOS document for any long period of time. He reported that some of the other schools are still using the SIRS II document. There are only two other companies who have a comparable instrument available. The group discussed the issue, both staying with the SIRS II and using the old SOS have comparable costs. Andersen noted that if we want to use this document to know where to improve, we should be compared to the national benchmarks and norms that SIRS allows. Bergey asked if it makes sense to change if the students are used to one form. Lemke stated that the students just fill out the form and are not concerned about what the document looks like. Andersen mentioned that he got more student comments with the old SOS that he found very helpful. Martinez asked why we are dropping the SIRS. Earley said that once the pilot study was done which the BOR paid for, they found that we couldn’t get the correct data they wanted with the electronic version of SIRS and that the cost for the survey instrument has been sent back to the various institutions. Senators were asked to poll their colleagues and send their responses to Miller who will take the information to the Council of Deans meeting next Tuesday.

Hesson moved and Beguin seconded that the agenda be approved. The motion passed.

Card moved and Hickenbotham seconded that the minutes be approved as amended. The motion passed.

Andersen reported that the Appointments Committee has been convened, and people are now volunteering for positions on the various committees.

Documents found on the web from four universities which are used to evaluate administrators were handed out. The universities are Texas Tech, Georgia College, the University of North Texas, and the University of Minnesota. Senators are to read through the documents to get a general impression of what kinds of characteristics are measured in each so that they can be more fully discussed at the next meeting. Hickenbotham asked if Myers is in favor of evaluating administrators. Shearer-Cremean said that he seems to be in favor but the problems have come from the BOR. Martinez commented that it was his impression that the BOR thought it was their job and not a faculty job to do this, even though they have never seen these documents. Hesson suggested that it could be called a Faculty Opinion Survey and that it could go only to the administrator being evaluated to be used to improve their job but that it could in no way be used against them or impact salary.

Bergey reported on the bookstore pricing and buy back policy. He is concerned that the bookstore is suffering because students are buying books online rather than paying the cost of the book plus 25 percent. He reported that the bookstore profits go to support the Student Union, to provide assistance to activities, and to support departmental discounts. All money spent in the bookstore stays at BHSU. He has been unable to find out who sets the mark up policy, whether it is a local policy or a statewide policy. Bergey will investigate this further. Strand noted that this is part of a larger national concern about the high cost of college books. Andersen and Beguin will check to see what the industry norms are for pricing textbooks.

Miller reported that the faculty chosen for the Presidential Search and Screen Committee were Betsy Silva and Mary Rogers. The committee will start meeting this Friday.

Miller handed out copies of the constitution and bylaws which are to possibly be revised. Card will send an electronic copy to the university webmaster to be posted to the website so all faculty can read it.

Miller had found that the yearly allotment for the Faculty Senate is $300 to be added to the $705 left in the account to be used this year.

Lemke reported that the Student Senate has finished the budget for the next two semesters. Most organizations are happy. Many new clubs received money. The Lakota Ominicye members and their advisors appealed the amount allotted. The Budget Committee will review their appeal and give their answer next week.

A course modification from the College of Education was reviewed and accepted.

Shearer-Cremean announced that Susie Dana is the new chair of the University Curriculum Committee.

Myron Sullivan has been asked to attend a meeting to discuss the need for another security person on campus. Sago will try to find a copy of the letter sent last year by the senate expressing our security concerns.

The question of having a senate meeting on Wednesday, Nov. 23, just before Thanksgiving, was discussed. It was decided that the senate will not meet then, but any major issues can be done through email or an emergency meeting.

Beguin guidelines and permission for taping a class that is being delivered through Vtel class. We will discuss this further at the next meeting.

Beguin reported that in the College of Business and Technology (CBT) workstudy students cannot help with any materials that have to do with grades, tests, etc., which has increased the faculty workload. She asked if other departments are also affected in this way. The issue was referred back to the CBT since it seems to be an issue only for them.

Andersen moved and Beguin seconded that the meeting be adjourned. The motion was approved and the meeting adjourned at 5 p.m.

The next Faculty Senate meeting will be Wednesday, Oct. 5.

These minutes were respectfully submitted by Sharon E. Strand.
