    Academic Service-Learning(AS-L) is a credit bearing, educational experience in which students participate in an organized service activity that meets identified community needs and reflect on the service activity in such a way as to gain further understanding of course content, a broader appreciation of the discipline and an enhanced sense of civic responsibility. The AS-L initiative aims to make UW-Superior a regional leader in academic service-learning, thus providing a distinctively public quality to UW-Superior's liberal arts mission.

    Over 60 UW-Superior students and staff gathered for a dinner on Wednesday, April 17 to celebrate the academic year for Swenson Scholarship recipients, and to pay tribute to Jim and Sue Swenson of the Swenson Family Foundation.

    The Swenson Scholarships were established by Jim and Sue in 1994 to aid students who meet the requirements of high academic talent and financial need, and majoring in biology, chemistry, or mathematics. Swenson Scholarships pay for full tuition, fees and books, and may be renewed for up to three additional years by eligible students. The scholarships are offered through the University of Wisconsin-Superior Foundation Inc., a private foundation supporting scholarships, faculty and programs at UW-Superior.  Since 1994, the Foundation has awarded 670 Swenson Scholarships.

    "Through their tremendous generosity, Jim and Sue Swenson have given students the greatest gift of all - the opportunity to invest in themselves through their education.  It is a gift that goes beyond the immediate financial dollars and will have a ripple effect across many generations to come," said Chancellor Renee Wachter.

    Jim and Sue feel blessed to be able to help students fulfill a dream to obtain a college degree - many of whom would not be able to without the Swenson Scholarship.

      "We are so grateful to play a small role in so many students' successes.  They have a dream with a road block.  Remove the road block and they flourish.  There is no greater satisfaction in life.  We get to feel the reward as students expand their horizons," said Sue Swenson.

    Joy Bashara Ingram, MA, Class of 1978, has just released the second book in a series of four for children titled The Gnome Came Home. Eilert's Long Way Home continues the story of the first book, Eilert the Gnome Loses Home, in which a gnome named Eilert Boe loses his way.

    "My intent when writing the books was to let children discover, along with the little gnome, what family and home means. His experiences mirror the experiences of many children as they see the changes in their own families and homes" said Joy. A teacher of children's drama and English, her credits include sharing her skills in Russia, Scotland, and the Czech Republic, as well as teaching for many years in Superior and the Midwest. Joy currently lives in Green Bay.

    June Nyberg, Superior resident and illustrator of the books, is a recognized national folk artist and rosemaler.  Recently interviewed and photographed along with her work and home, she was recognized by the Wisconsin Arts Board as an Artist of Excellence in Wisconsin. June also teaches classes throughout the Midwest. In speaking about the illustrations, June said "I read the words and wait for the inspiration of what needs to be added to offer enhancement, without taking all opportunities for individual interpretation". Arlene Osterlund, Class of 1974, also lent a hand by helping to edit the books.

    The books are available from JujoImaginings Book Publisher. Please email Joy at joybaing@new.rr.com for more information or to order.

    The 35th Annual Red Cliff Traditional Pow Wow was held July 5-7 on the Red Cliff Ojibwe Reservation in Red Cliff, Wisconsin near Bayfield. This year there were many people affiliated with UW-Superior in attendance, including Chancellor Renée Wachter, prospective and current students, alumni, staff, and current and retired faculty members.  Ivy Vainio, Class of 2013 and Sr. Student Services Specialist for the Office of Multicultural Affairs at UW-Superior, was able to capture several photographs of Chancellor Wachter interacting with alumni and students at the event.

    "I have been attending powwows for my whole adult life - almost 30 years now and it has been rare to see a University Chancellor attend and participate in one," said Ivy. At the powwow, Chancellor Wachter was asked to be part of an honor song that recognized and honored all the 2013 graduates - from pre-school all the way up to doctoral graduates.  This is a very high honor to be asked to be a participant. "It was a very proud moment for me and the other UW-Superior students and alumni to see her participate in that. It was a very cool experience," Ivy also added.  

    Andrea Boulley DeBungie, Class of 2008, and her husband Dennis were head dancers, an important role in the powwow. She had this to say about the Chancellor's involvement, "I believe it was a step in the right direction for promoting higher education within our native community. It showed she respects and cares about our culture, and wants to build relationships. These are values I try to teach my students." Andrea is a teacher at Bayfield High School, and says UW-Superior is an easy decision for some Native American students. "They are made to feel welcome, and the faculty and staff in the First Nations program and Multicultural Center are a large part of that." 

    Current UW-Superior student and powwow dancer Richard Smith wants to thank Chancellor Wachter and other staff and faculty for accepting the opportunity to experience the Red Cliff powwow celebration. "I believe the participation of a cultural event, other than your own, is an experience that enhances one's life, while gifting you with a lifelong memory.  Stepping outside ones comfort zone and partaking in such an event is an admirable act. Today the participants know a little more of thy neighbor, the Ojibwe - MiiGwetch."
