The College of Arts and Sciences - Dean's Faculty and Staff Newsletter
   August, 2009

Bennett I. BertenthalDear Colleagues,

In spite of the continuing problems with the economy, I hope that you all had relaxing and productive summers. As we prepare to welcome students back to campus, I take pleasure in sending you this newsletter listing faculty accomplishments, awards, honors and discoveries.

I also want to remind you that our first Themester, Evolution, Diversity and Change, is set to begin.  Themester will offer over 40 courses, and a dazzling calendar of diverse events during the fall semester.  I hope many of you will have an opportunity to take part in one or more of these events, beginning with the Cardinal Stage Company's production of Inherit the Wind, which opens September 4 at the John Waldron Arts Center in downtown Bloomington.

I am also very pleased to announce the launching today of the College's new website.  Please take some time to surf the new site and send us your comments.  And finally, I hope you have had a chance to view the first online issue of THE COLLEGE magazine. 

I look forward to working with all of you over the coming year.  The challenges that lie ahead are imposing, but so, too, are the opportunities.


Bennett I. Bertenthal
James H. Rudy Professor and
Dean of the IU College of Arts and Sciences
