Jane Goodall to speak at
Black Hills State University - top
© Michael Neugebauer
Dr. Jane Goodall with chimpanzee Galahad at Gombe National Park,
Dr. Jane Goodall, internationally renowned primate
expert, will speak at Black Hills State University Wednesday, April 19
at 6 p.m. offering the public a chance to hear firsthand about her work
with chimpanzees, her reasons for hope and her belief in the power of
the individual to affect change.
Goodall began her landmark study of chimpanzees in
Tanzania in June 1960, under the mentorship of anthropologist and
paleontologist Dr. Louis Leakey. Her work would become the foundation of
future primatological research and would redefine the relationship
between humans and animals.
According to Dr. Holly Downing, dean of the College of
Arts and Sciences at BHSU, Goodall’s presentation is an opportunity for
students, faculty and community people to hear firsthand from one of the
most influential people in the field of animal behavior who has inspired
many scientists throughout her career. Goodall will discuss the threats
facing chimpanzees and other environmental crises.
“Dr. Goodall has a long history of excellent research
and really significant work toward conservation worldwide. To have a
person like Jane Goodall speaking on our campus is a real opportunity
for faculty, students and people in the community. It’s a real honor to
have Jane Goodall on our campus,” Downing said. “She has inspired many
Downing was inspired to study animal behavior after
reading one of Goodall’s books when she was just 13 years old.
“Jane Goodall is a personal role model for me. She
inspired young women to go into the sciences in the 60s and 70s. She was
out working in the field and she was an adventurer to be doing that work
at that time. She published her work and inspired many young women to
pursue research opportunities,” Downing said.
Goodall will be in the region promoting her “Roots to
Shoots” program, which fosters global connectedness among youth and
schools. According to the Jane Goodall Institute, which she established
in 1977, the "Roots and Shoots" program fosters global connectedness
among youth and schools. By traveling around to different schools and
communities, Goodall continually urges her audiences to recognize their
personal responsibility and ability to effect change through consumer
action, lifestyle change and activism.
Goodall’s pioneering research on chimpanzee behavior
transformed scientific perceptions concerning the relationship between
humans and animals. Today, the Jane Goodall Institute is a global leader
in the effort to protect chimpanzees and their habitats. It also is
widely recognized for establishing innovative community-centered
conservation and development programs in Africa and the “Roots & Shoots”
education program, which has groups in more than 90 countries.
Goodall travels an average 300 days per year, speaking
about the threats facing chimpanzees, other environmental crises, and
her reasons for hope that humankind will solve the problems it has
imposed on the earth.
Goodall's scores of honors include the Medal of
Tanzania, the National Geographic Society's Hubbard Medal, Japan's
prestigious Kyoto Prize, the Prince of Asturias Award for Technical and
Scientific Research 2003, the Benjamin Franklin Medal in Life Science,
and the Gandhi/King Award for Nonviolence. In April 2002
Secretary-General Kofi Annan named Goodall a United Nations “Messenger
of Peace.” In 2004, in a ceremony at Buckingham Palace, Prince Charles
invested Goodall as a Dame of the British Empire, the female equivalent
Goodall’s list of publications includes her latest
book Harvest for Hope: A Guide to Mindful Eating, two overviews of her
work at Gombe — In the Shadow of Man and Through a Window as well as two
autobiographies in letters, the best-selling autobiography Reason for
Hope and many children's books. The Chimpanzees of Gombe: Patterns of
Behavior is the definitive scientific work on chimpanzees and is the
culmination of Goodall's scientific career. She has been the subject of
numerous television documentaries and is featured in the large-screen
format film, Jane Goodall's Wild Chimpanzees (2002). In 2004 she was
featured in two Discovery Channel Animal Planet specials—Jane Goodall’s
Return to Gombe and Jane Goodall’s State of the Great Ape.

Donovin Sprague donates
photograph and hand-carved flute to Case Library for Western Studies
Donovin Sprague (left) presents an
original hand-carved flute and a historical photograph to Alicia Caldanaro (center), Black Hills State University
reference librarian, and Bobbi Sago, special collections librarian.
Sprague donated the items to the Case Library for Western Studies at
BHSU. They will be put on permanent display at the library.
Donovin Sprague recently donated a historical
photograph and a hand-carved flute to the Case Library for Western
Studies at the Black Hills State University E.Y. Berry Library-Learning
Center. They will be put on permanent display at the library.
The photograph “Chief Hump and Two Wives” was taken in
1879 by L.A. Huffman at Fort Keogh, Montana territory, when Hump and his
band surrendered from Canada. Hump died Dec. 11, 1908, at Cherry Creek.
The hand-carved flute, one of a number of original
creations by Sprague, symbolizes the story of the Lakota Sioux Flute
Legend that Sprague adopted from Henry Crow Dog, Lakota.
“My flutes are made with thoughts of the legends,”
Sprague, a member of the Minnicoujou Lakota who was
born and raised on the Cheyenne River Sioux Reservation, is the
great-great grandson of Chief Hump II (High Back Bone) and a descendant
of the families of Chief Hump and Chief Crazy Horse.
Sprague received his bachelor’s degree from Black
Hills State University in 1982 and went on to get his master’s degree
from the University of South Dakota. The last several years, he has been
employed with Crazy Horse Memorial in the Black Hills as director of
education and director of the large Native American Education and
Cultural Center. He also serves as an adjunct instructor at BHSU and
Oglala Lakota College, teaching American Indian Studies, Lakota Studies,
Political Science, American Indian Law, Treaties and Government, and
Lakota Art and History. He also travels throughout the U.S. and Canada
visiting between one to two million people per year on reservations and
“The library is very appreciative and excited to have
the flute and the picture on display. They are a very special and
interesting addition to the collection.” Alicia Caldanaro, BHSU
reference librarian, said. For more information on the donations,

Student Support Services to
sponsor a blood drive - top
Students from the Student Support Services (SSS)
program at Black Hills State University will sponsor a benefit blood
drive through United Blood Services for four-year-old Jacob Galbraith of
Lead Wednesday, March 1, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Jacket Legacy room
of the David B. Miller Yellow Jacket Student Union.
For every unit of O negative and O positive blood
donated, United Blood Services will donate $10 to help with Galbraith’s
medical expenses. Galbraith, whose grandmother Christina Nash is a BHSU
student associated with SSS, is being treated for acute lymphoblastic
The SSS students are hosting this community service
project in recognition of National TRiO Day as a way to show
appreciation to the community and as a thank you to the community for
its support of the TRIO programs.
For millions of Americans from low-income families who
have college potential but lack the wherewithal to pursue their
education goals, seven federally-funded programs called TRIO are making
a world of difference, according to Susan Hupp, director of SSS at BHSU.
Unlike student financial aid programs which help students to overcome
financial barriers to higher education, for 30 years the TRIO Programs
(Talent Search, Upward Bound, Upward Bound Math/Science, Veterans Upward
Bound, Student Support Services, Educational Opportunity Centers, and
the Ronald E. McNair Post-Baccalaureate Program) have been providing
valuable support services to help students from poor and working
families successfully enter college and graduate.
Black Hills State University hosts two TRiO
programs—Upward Bound and Student Support Services. Upward Bound serves
70 students from 14 target high schools. The Student Support Services
program serves 200 students who are first-generation college students,
students from low-income households, or students who have documented
disabilities. BHSU was selected to host its first TRIO program in 1968
and has been funded every year since.
Students in the TRIO program credit the programs for
their success at BHSU. Laci Schmalz, a junior at BHSU, has been involved
with SSS for three years now and says the program has been instrumental
to her academic career.
“During my first week (with SSS), I realized that this
wasn’t just a program, it was a family, and I wanted to be part of it. I
applied and was immediately accepted with open arms. Everyone knows how
difficult and confusing the first year of college is, and I will admit I
didn’t know how to get involved, register for classes, find a tutor, or
even for what purpose I had come to college. Student Support Services
paved this path for me.”
Bernie Butcher, a single parent attending BHSU, agrees
that SSS has helped her achieve her goals.
“I was struggling in college algebra and was able to
get extra help from the math tutor. I learned new skills for writing
more effectively. I was able to get through the challenging classes with
the help from the (study) strategy workshops that are offered. I have
used the financial aid workshops and advisor for my financial aid
questions,” Butcher said. “The staff at Student Support Services are
encouraging and help me strive to be the best I can be. They have been a
great asset for my motivation and self-esteem and, as a result, I am
successful at Black Hills State University.”
According to Dr. Arnold Mitchem, president of the
Council for Opportunity in Education, an education association which
represents TRIO students, colleges, graduates, counselors, and teachers
nationwide, “These programs work because they are student-centered,
performance-based and non-bureaucratic.”
“We want more people to know about the services of the
TRIO Programs. We also want people to know that this federal program
works and should be expanded to serve more students,” Hupp added.
For more information about TRiO programs or the blood
drive contact Hupp at 642-6824.

students who wrote terrific papers should have the opportunity to
present their papers, so I suggested that they submit them,” King said.
Randi Anderson, a senior English education major from
Newell, will present her conference paper “Life as Compared to Hamlet.”
Her essay was originally written for King’s Introduction to Literature
course at the BHSU campus. “I think that it will be very neat to hear
all of the other English students’ new ideas at the conference and I am
very excited to go,” Anderson said.
Leonard Crosby, a sophomore English major from Hot
Springs, will present “Anne Bradstreet: A Poet Outside of Puritan
Bounds.” Originally his paper was written for King’s American Literature
1 course. After reading the paper, King told Crosby that it was well
written and should be submitted for the conference. “I am very excited
to read my paper in front of all of the other English students. It will
be a great learning experience to hear the other students’ topics and
research,” Crosby said.

BHSU to offer teacher
institutes about Tribal governments and Indian lands
Two Tribal Governments and Indian Lands Teacher
Institutes will be held for k-12 teachers this summer at Black Hills
The first institute will be June 19-23 and the second
from July 17-21. Each program will be offered to 20 K-12 teachers, with
a vast majority being high school social science educators. Although a
clear majority of the participants will be educators from South Dakota
schools with a large Indian student population, seats will also be
reserved for educators from outside of the state. The institutes are
seeking primarily instructors from Indian communities, but all K-12
instructors are encouraged to apply.
The office of Native Educational Endeavors, a
cooperative venture between the University of South Dakota Law School
Foundation and Black Hills State University, is sponsoring the
institutes. Major funding comes from the Indian Land Tenure Foundation,
a private non-profit entity with main offices in Minnesota whose mission
is: "land within the original boundaries of every reservation and other
areas of high significance where tribes retain aboriginal interest are
in Indian ownership and management." The South Dakota Humanities
Council, an affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities, is
co-sponsoring the institutes.
The objectives of Tribal Governments and Indian Lands
Teacher Institutes are three-fold, according to Dr. John Glover,
director of Native Educational Endeavors at BHSU. First, the
instructional program will provide elementary and secondary instructors
exposure to the composition and operations of the nine federally
recognized Tribal governments in South Dakota, as well as, exposing them
to the nature and make up of the over 560 other such entities in the
United States. Secondly, the institutes will provide needed information
on the diverse and complex ways in which Indian lands are held within
and outside the state. Lastly, participants will be exposed to the
history and current issues of culturally significant sites, with an
emphasis on Bear Butte. Throughout the institute, participants will be
shown methods and materials useful in conveying this complicated
material to their students.
In addition to free tuition, participants will receive
over $550 in the form of curriculum materials and money to be used for
travel and per diem. Participants in the teachers institute will also
receive three renewal credit hours as approved by the South Dakota
Department of Education (www.southdakotapd.com).

Interdisciplinary Training for Undergraduates in Biological and
Mathematical Sciences (NSF)
The goal of the Undergraduate Biology and Mathematics (UBM) activity
is to enhance undergraduate education and training at the intersection
of the biological and mathematical sciences and to better prepare
undergraduate biology or mathematics students to pursue graduate study
and careers in fields that integrate the mathematical and biological
sciences. The core of the activity is long-term research experiences for
interdisciplinarily balanced teams of at least four undergraduates.
Projects should focus on research at the intersection of the
mathematical and biological sciences. Projects should provide students
exposure to contemporary mathematics and biology, addressed with modern
research tools and methods. That is, projects must be genuine research
experiences rather than rehearsals of research methods. Projects must
involve students from both areas in collaborative research experiences
and include joint mentorship by faculty in both fields. In addition, it
is expected that projects will strengthen the research and education
capacity, infrastructure, and culture of the participating institutions.
To this end, projects should create models for education in the
mathematical and biological sciences and influence the direction of
academic programs for a broad range of students. UBM is a joint effort
of the Education and Human Resources (EHR), Biological Sciences (BIO),
and Mathematical and Physical Sciences (MPS) Directorates at the
National Science Foundation (NSF).
