She put the Tigers on the board early in the 10th minute and made it 2-0 precisely 20 minutes later with what proved to be the fourth game winner of her career.<br /><br />With a little more than 18 minutes remaining in the game, Milliet completed her hat trick when she took a through ball from junior forward Clara Richter and sent a crossing shot from the left side into the Coyote net.<br /><br />Milliet became the 13th Tiger to score three or more goals in a game and the first since Brittney Lyman struck five times in a 5-2 victory over UTEP on Oct. 30, 2009. Milliet&rsquo;s hat trick is the 21st in program history.<br /><br />During Sunday&rsquo;s 2-0 victory over Army West Point, Milliet set up Richter&rsquo;s game-winning goal late in the 7th minute by sending a perfectly-place pass over Army&rsquo;s back line.<br /><br />Sullivan, who received the defensive recognition for the first time, played all 180 minutes during the two games and now has played all 551 minutes this season.<br /><br />In the two victories, Sullivan organized CC&rsquo;s back line which allowed only one goal and 16 shots, only eight of which were on target.<br /><br />In the win over Army, Colorado College defense allowed only seven total shots, four of which were on frame, while recording its first clean sheet of the season.<br /><br />South Dakota&rsquo;s only goal came on a quick re-start of a direct kick.<br /><br />The Tigers play their final two non-conference games this week at Yale University on Friday and the University of Connecticut on Sunday.</p> Cheanna Gavin (’18) Accepted into the Undergraduate Pre-Health Program with the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus and Kaiser Permanente Health Plan of Colorado Wed, 13 Sep 2017 08:09:00 MDT http://www.coloradocollege.edu/newsevents/newsroom/cheanna-gavin-18-accepted-into-the-undergraduate-pre-health-program-with-the-university-of-colorado-anschutz-medical-campus-and-kaiser-permanente-health-plan-of-colorado http://www.coloradocollege.edu/newsevents/newsroom/cheanna-gavin-18-accepted-into-the-undergraduate-pre-health-program-with-the-university-of-colorado-anschutz-medical-campus-and-kaiser-permanente-health-plan-of-colorado <p class="MsoNormal">We are excited to announce that Cheanna Gavin (Feminist &amp; Gender Studies &lsquo;18) will be participating in the <a href="http://www.ucdenver.edu/about/departments/odi/OIO/Programs/undergraduate/UPP/Pages/default.aspx" target="_blank">Undergraduate Pre-Health Program</a>, a partnership between the Office of Diversity and Inclusion at the <a href="http://www.ucdenver.edu/anschutz" target="_blank">University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus</a> and <a href="https://thrive.kaiserpermanente.org/care-near-colorado" target="_blank">Kaiser Permanente Health Plan of Colorado</a>.</p> <p class="MsoNormal">One main goal of both of these organizations is to &ldquo;increase the number of historically underrepresented individuals within the health care professions for the purpose of reducing health disparities among underserved communities in Colorado.&rdquo; In this program, then, Cheanna will learn about and engage in discussions about health disparities, health policy, and social justice issues that impact equity in healthcare.

More specifically, Lewis argues that &ldquo;Pour It Up&rdquo; disrupts the grotesque/hypersexual dichotomy regarding Black women and their bodies in the popular/mainstream music industry by constructing <span style="color: #181818; background: white;">exotic dancers as multi-dimensional artists and athletes, not always already objects lacking autonomy and self-determination or silenced bodies reduced entirely to their appearance. </span>Additionally, she argues that t</span><span style="mso-fareast-font-family: 'Times New Roman'; mso-bidi-font-family: 'Times New Roman'; color: #1a1a1a; mso-fareast-language: ES-EC;">he video&rsquo;s focus on the dancers&rsquo; performances </span><span style="mso-bidi-font-family: 'Times New Roman'; color: black;">subverts the idea that exotic dancing is <em style="mso-bidi-font-style: normal;">only</em> significant as a consumer commodity, as well as the idea that </span><span style="mso-bidi-font-family: 'Times New Roman';">constructions of Black exotic dancers must always perpetuate discourses that denigrate Black women.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="mso-bidi-font-family: 'Times New Roman';">Lewis was invited by Dr. Jeanine Staples to contribute the article to a special edition of the journal, &ldquo;Love, Identity, and Literacies: Critical Explorations of Race, Gender, and Sexuality Through New Literacy Studies,&rdquo; which &ldquo;will forefront contributions that feature/trouble endarkened feminist/womanist, intersectional, and multimodal explorations of the use of new literacies among black and brown girls and women.&rdquo; Further, the edition aims to &ldquo;promote portraitures of the range and variation of black and brown women&rsquo;s wisdoms in relation to love and life, in addition to the ideological and systemic phenomena that contest their love and life, namely white and black supremacist patriarchal ideologies and enactments (such as relational and social microaggressions and macroaggressions, which [Dr. Staples refers to as] t/Terrors).&rdquo;</span></p> Professor Emeritus Paul "Buzz" Kutsche Passes Away Mon, 04 Sep 2017 15:45:00 MDT http://www.coloradocollege.edu/newsevents/newsroom/professor-emeritus-paul-buzz-kutsche-passes-away http://www.coloradocollege.edu/newsevents/newsroom/professor-emeritus-paul-buzz-kutsche-passes-away <p>Colorado College Professor Emeritus of the Anthropology Department Paul &ldquo;Buzz&rdquo; Kutsche, passed away May 18th, 2017. He founded the College&rsquo;s Department of Anthropology where he taught from 1959 to 1993. His research interests included cultural anthropology, the Cherokee peoples, the southwestern Hispanic population, and Costa Rica. Kutsche completed fieldwork in Cherokee, North Carolina, Northern New Mexico, and Costa Rica, leading to the publication of numerous articles and four books: <em>Ca&ntilde;ones, A guide to Cherokee Documents in the Northeastern U.S., Voices of Migrants, </em>and <em>Field Ethnography.</em></p> <p>Kutsche was native to Grand Rapids, MI, and returned there after his retirement from Colorado College. Prior to his time at CC, Kutsche received a B.A. from Harvard University in 1949, after a two-year period of service in the U.S. Army. He then earned two graduate degrees in Anthropology from the University of Michigan (M.A. 1955) and the University of Pennsylvania (Ph.D. 1961). Kutsche additionally studied at Black Mountain College (North Carolina) and the University of Oslo, and spent time as a United Press reporter in London.</p> <p>Activism was a central component of Kutsche&rsquo;s life and he dedicated time in the 90s to a letter-writing campaign that fought for the protection of the LGBTQ+ community. This campaign led to a significant increase in the number of colleges and universities with LGBTQ+ antidiscrimination policies.</p> <p>Additionally, Kutsche led the American Anthropological Association in creating a nondiscrimination pledge and chaired the AAA&rsquo;s Gay and Lesbian Caucus. Kutsche also volunteered with the Westminster Presbyterian Church Food Pantry for over 20 years.</p> <p>One of Kutsche&rsquo;s most impressive professional legacies is the Kutsche Office of Local History at Grand Valley State University. This organization facilitates the collection and preservation of underrepresented groups in Western Michigan and provides a voice to diverse communities throughout history. Kutsche&rsquo;s personal connection to Grand Rapids drove the founding of this project, as he worked to document and publish of the histories of marginalized peoples whose histories had previously been undocumented.</p> <p>Buzz was well known for his sense of humor and exuberant personality among his friends, students, and family. He took a personal interest in everyone he met and dedicated his life to extending love and support to those who needed it most. Buzz will be greatly missed and his work remains a fundamental cornerstone of the Department of Anthropology.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Visiting Writers Series Brings Variety of Authors to Campus Mon, 04 Sep 2017 14:15:00 MDT http://www.coloradocollege.edu/newsevents/newsroom/visiting-writers-series-brings-variety-of-authors-to-campus http://www.coloradocollege.edu/newsevents/newsroom/visiting-writers-series-brings-variety-of-authors-to-campus ]]> <p>Meet a collection of award-winning writers as part of Colorado College&rsquo;s <a href="https://www.coloradocollege.edu/visitingwriters/">Visiting Writers Series</a>.

The $45 million renovation of Tutt Library makes it the largest academic library to achieve net-zero construction.</p> <p>The landmark achievement comes in spite of adding approximately 25,000 additional square feet to the building and nearly doubling the seating capacity. The library has been technologically transformed, with a data visualization lab, space for new and emerging technology, a Geospatial Information Systems laboratory, and an experimental classroom equipped with teaching technology.</p> <p>Appropriately, one of the first classes to be taught in the new library is Colorado College President Jill Tiefenthaler&rsquo;s Economics of Higher Education, which she co-teaches with her husband, Kevin Rask.</p> <p>The library, constructed in 1962, has advanced audiovisual and technology-centric systems including wireless accessibility meet current and anticipated future demands. Faculty and students are able to access collections and information, and communicate with each other, even while off campus during CC&rsquo;s signature field study and study abroad experiences.</p> <p>A geothermal energy field on Armstrong Quad, consisting of 80 wells, each 400 feet deep and five and a half inches wide; 115-kilowatt rooftop solar array; 400-kilowatt offsite solar array; green roof-top garden; and 130-kilowatt combined heat and power system are all part of the project. The net-zero energy library recently received one of three <a href="http://www.prweb.com/releases/2017/07/prweb14552431.htm">2017 Innovation Awards</a>&nbsp;from the National Association of College and University Business Officers.</p> <p>&ldquo;Fifty-five years ago students, faculty and staff stood on this lawn to dedicate CC&rsquo;s new Charles L. Tutt Library,&rdquo; said President Tiefenthaler in a campus-wide celebration following Opening Convocation on Monday, Aug. 28.</p> <p>At the conclusion of the ceremony, Thayer Tutt Jr., a current CC trustee; <strong>Ben Kieklak &rsquo;18</strong>, student trustee; and <strong>Dorsa </strong><strong>Djalilzadeh &rsquo;18</strong>, president of the CC Student Government Association, joined in the unveiling of the statue of Charles L. Tutt Jr.</p> <p>The re-opening of the library coincides with the appointment of JoAnn Jacoby, the library&rsquo;s new director, who joined the college in early August. Previously Jacoby served as associate dean for user services in the University of Illinois Library, the largest publicly funded academic library in the U.S.</p> Psychoanalysis Minor Looks Within, Grows Externally Tue, 29 Aug 2017 18:00:00 MDT http://www.coloradocollege.edu/newsevents/newsroom/psychoanalysis-minor-looks-within-grows-externally http://www.coloradocollege.edu/newsevents/newsroom/psychoanalysis-minor-looks-within-grows-externally ]]> <p style="margin: 0in 0in 0pt;"><span style="color: #000000; font-family: Cambria; font-size: medium;" size="3" color="#000000" face="Cambria">By <strong>Laurie Laker &rsquo;12</strong></span></p> <p><span style="color: #000000; font-family: Times New Roman; font-size: medium;" size="3" color="#000000" face="Times New Roman"> </span></p> <p>Did you know that CC&rsquo;s minor in psychoanalysis is nationally recognized as a flagship program in psychoanalysis at the undergraduate level? Featured in several national publications and the recipient of a highly selective foundation grant, the minor serves as a model for other university programs across the country. Such is its success that its leaders, Classics Professor Marcia Dobson and Philosophy Professor John Riker, were elected as co-chairs of the American Psychoanalytic Association&rsquo;s Committee on Psychoanalysis and Undergraduate Education.</p> <p>Dobson and Riker, with the help of Philosophy Professor Jonathan Lee, founded the minor in psychoanalysis, called Theories of the Unconscious, in 2000, and have been at the helm since its beginnings. One of its first classes, Dobson&rsquo;s Discovering the Unconscious: Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy, had a 60-student waitlist. &ldquo;The hunger for this subject matter was there from the beginning,&rdquo; Dobson says.</p> <p>Incorporating other classes across CC&rsquo;s liberal arts curriculum into the fold, Dobson describes the minor as &ldquo;a real liberal arts entity.&rdquo; The program has established itself as one of the most pioneering &mdash; one of only three or so organized programs offered in the entire country.</p> <p>&ldquo;In 2015-16,&rdquo; Riker explains, &ldquo;there was a real shot in the arm when a $10,000 a year grant for three years was received from the O&rsquo;Donaghue Foundation. We were one of only five colleges or universities to receive the grant, and it was withdrawn from two of the colleges for their failure to develop adequate programs for using the money.&rdquo;</p> <p>CC has used the grant both to create a psychoanalytic salon, a regular gathering of students and experts, which meets each block at Dobson&rsquo;s and Riker&rsquo;s home, (the two professors are married) as well as to bring to campus some of the most famous psychoanalysts in the country to speak to classes and give highly popular all-campus addresses. Several of the all-campus lectures have had audiences of over 100 people, with the average being 70. They have been attended not only by students but also by therapists up and down Colorado&rsquo;s Front Range, furthering goodwill between CC and the wider community. &ldquo;Over the years, students have commented that one or another of the lectures changed their life course and deeply affected how they see the world,&rdquo; adds Dobson.</p> <p>&ldquo;We have had everyone from prominent Jungians to Freudians to philosophers and contemporary psychoanalytic clinicians come to speak. It represents a really strong spectrum of fields and professions, and continues to do so. Crucially, everything had to involve the students, from day one. We made sure to have a psychoanalytic salon right from the start,&rdquo; Dobson explains.</p> <p>The minor, though small, remains significant for its output of graduates who go on to further clinical study. Between three to five students are involved in the minor each year, and of that pool an average of two per year will go on to practice clinical work. This prolific study-to-career ratio is due, in part, to the courses that students have access to during their time in the program. Chief among these is the Summer Session class, which takes place at the Chicago Institute for Psychoanalysis and has been taught there for 11 years.</p> <p>&ldquo;During the summer, students collaborate with 12-15 professional clinical psychologists, read and examine cases, and work together, and learn how to engage in that world and with clients,&rdquo; says Riker. &ldquo;Of all the courses we teach, this one has by far the most compelling effect on students.&rdquo;</p> <p>The course has been recognized as unique not only in the United States but also internationally &mdash; no other college or university has an undergraduate course taught at a psychoanalytic institute. The uniqueness of the course has been profiled in the newsletter of the Chicago Institute and in the publications of the American Psychoanalytic Association.</p> <p>The immersive nature of the Block Plan is what makes this class as special as it is. &ldquo;It&rsquo;s so in-depth, not just in the curriculum, but beyond the classroom as well,&rdquo; Riker explains. &ldquo;The students are living together during the class, so they&rsquo;re also carrying the course material far beyond the classroom and into their personal discussions and friendships.&rdquo;</p> <p>Outside the classroom, the group immerses itself into the local Chicago culture, seeing plays and musical performances that have psychoanalytic content. This past summer the class went to see &ldquo;Harvey,&rdquo; a 1944 drama about a man whose best friend is an imaginary six-foot tall rabbit, as well as a dramatic production of &ldquo;Moby-Dick.&rdquo; They&rsquo;re also regulars at the Art Institute of Chicago, where they learn how to interpret the latent meanings and impacts within the great works displayed there.</p> <p>Dobson and Riker remain as involved with the program at CC, and indeed the development of similar programs nationwide, as ever. In their work as the chairs of the Committee on Undergraduate Education &mdash; a committee that includes professors from Princeton, the University of Pennsylvania, Brandeis University, and Boston College &mdash; they gather information on psychoanalysis programs across the country. Among the many projects in the works is a website that other scholars and clinicians around the world can use to foster psychoanalytic education. In their research, they have discovered that CC ranks very highly.</p> <p>&ldquo;We surveyed the programs nationally, and we&rsquo;re top of the class!&rdquo; Riker adds with a proud smile. &ldquo;We&rsquo;ve also been asked by the <em>Psychoanalytic Inquiry</em> journal to produce an entire issue on psychoanalysis here at CC, which is a great honor and we&rsquo;re excited about that.&rdquo;</p> <p>Dobson and Riker are intent and eager to ensure the future of the program.</p> <p>&ldquo;We&rsquo;re hoping to secure funds to support a professorship in psychoanalysis before we both retire,&rdquo; Dobson says, &ldquo;and we&rsquo;ve been working hard to bring younger faculty into the program as well, including Scott Krzych of Film and Media Studies, William Davis from Comparative Literature, and Rick Furtak of Philosophy.&rdquo;</p> <p>Colorado College is an innovator and respected leader in undergraduate education and the minor in psychoanalysis at CC is one of the ways in which the college truly stands out.</p> Reduced Fees, Expanded Hours, Discounts Increase Access to FAC Tue, 29 Aug 2017 11:00:00 MDT http://www.coloradocollege.edu/newsevents/newsroom/reduced-fees-expanded-hours-discounts-increase-access-to-fac http://www.coloradocollege.edu/newsevents/newsroom/reduced-fees-expanded-hours-discounts-increase-access-to-fac ]]> <p>The Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center at Colorado College (FAC) is offering reduced admission rates, expanded hours, and increased discounts in order to provide greater access for the Colorado Springs community. Colorado College faculty, students, and staff with Gold Cards already receive free admission to all exhibits and galleries.</p> <p>These changes for the greater Colorado Springs community, coming at a time when funding and access to the arts are being reduced at both local and national levels, are the first of many to be implemented following the approval of the FAC/CC strategic plan, titled &ldquo;Excellence, Access, and Collaboration.&rdquo;</p> <p>The efforts to increase access include a range of initiatives. Beginning Saturday, Sept. 1, visitors to the FAC will have full access to all museum galleries at the following reduced rates of admission:</p> <ul> <li>$10 for general public admission. Rates in the past varied, depending on the exhibition, and sometimes were as high as $18. Admission fees will now be a constant $10 throughout the year.</li> <li>Seniors, active duty, and retired military personnel will receive a 50 percent discount, meaning admission is $5. The FAC also participates in the Blue Star Museum program, which provides active duty and retired military personnel and their families free admission each year from Memorial Day to Labor Day.</li> <li>Free admission currently offered to children 12 and under will be extended to include all students and teachers with valid ID from any school in the country, including high schools, trade schools, and higher ed institutions. This includes all Colorado College Gold Card holders.</li> <li>An additional Museum Free Day will be added each month. Currently the third Friday of each month is designated as a Museum Free Day; beginning Saturday, Sept. 9, the second Saturday of each month also will be a Museum Free Day, in an effort to extend this benefit to those who may not be able to visit during the week.</li> </ul> <p>In addition to reducing admission rates and adding discounts and free days, the FAC is extending the museum&rsquo;s evening hours in order to welcome the Colorado Springs working community to the galleries after work.</p> <ul> <li>Tuesday through Saturday the FAC will open at 10 a.m. and close at 7:30 p.m. Sunday hours will remain 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.</li> <li>Starting Sept 11, the FAC museum will be closed to the public on Mondays for special touring programs and museum exhibition installations.</li> </ul> <p>The initiatives for greater community access go beyond the museum. Additional Wednesday evening performances for mainstage productions are slated for the upcoming theatre season. Theatre-goers can enjoy award-winning, Broadway-worthy theatre for a flat ticket price of $20 per seat on these new Wednesday evening performances.</p> <p>&ldquo;These are just a few of many planned initiatives we&rsquo;re instituting as part of Colorado College to provide the Colorado Springs community with greater access to the arts,&rdquo; says FAC Director Erin Hannan. &ldquo;Look in the coming months for news on additional programs and offerings we&rsquo;re creating to fulfill the vision outlined in the strategic plan. It&rsquo;s all about taking down potential barriers to visitation and making sure we&rsquo;re doing everything we can to create access to exceptional arts experiences for this great community.&rdquo;</p> <p>The complete strategic plan of the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center at Colorado College <a href="https://www.coloradocollege.edu/csfac/">is available online</a>.&nbsp;</p>
