MESSAGE FROM ELEANOR M. MILLER,
DEAN OF UVM'S COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCES


I have often used this space to talk about new undergraduate curricular initiatives, such as the introduction of Arabic or Portuguese, the proposed new minor in Dance or Board of Trustee approval of the new BA in Engineering, or to share my excitement about new faculty (profiles of new faculty arriving in fall can be found here). I have received quite a bit of feedback from parents, alumni, and friends that they enjoy learning about how the College of Arts and Sciences is growing and changing in the CAS E-News. continued


IN HONOR OF GLEN ELDER

It is with a very heavy heart that I write to inform you of the death on Thursday, May 21 of Associate Dean Glen Strauch Elder. Dr. Elder came to UVM as a visiting assistant professor in 1995. In 1998, he was appointed Assistant Professor. He received tenure and was promoted to Associate Professor in 2002 and was in the midst of preparing his dossier for consideration for promotion to the rank of Full Professor this fall. continued

DAVID ZUCKERMAN, CLASS OF '95,
LED THE WAY FOR MARRIAGE EQUALITY

He was a leader fighting the shuttle buses (the thinking being that able folks could actually walk across campus), he helped organize Earth Day, he protested against the first Iraq war, and was he involved in other social justice issues on campus. continued




SOCIOLOGY PROFESSOR ROBBIE PFEUFER KAHN'S
LATEST BOOK —
MILK TEETH: A MEMOIR OF A WOMAN AND HER DOG


A memoir about the intricacies of the human/animal bond

Dogs are the most popular pet in the United States and a beloved family member to many. As with a human baby, a puppy's innocent "wild" behavior can provoke unkind treatment. The source of this unfortunate but common reaction often lies in the past-the family history of the caretaker. continued

CAS PHYSICS PROFESSOR JUNRU WU AND GRADUATE STUDENT ROBERT ANDOSCA CREATE AWARD-WINNING ENERGY HARVESTING DEVICE

After working in the IT industry for about ten years, a former master-degree student of Professor Junru Wu (pictured right) expressed his desire to return to UVM to work on his Ph.D. in Materials Science in Spring 2007. While Robert Andosca (pictured left) discussed the possible topics of his Ph.D. thesis with his former Physics professor, energy harvesting became an obvious hot topic. "Energy harvesting" or "power scavenging" is a new emerging technology that converts the ambient "useless" energy to be useful electrical energy. continued
