Reminder about state smoking ban
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
To comply with the state law passed almost a year ago, the University is enforcing a smoking ban that also forbids smoking in any enclosed area, including buildings and parking decks. In order to ensure, as now required by law, that tobacco smoke does not enter any area in which smoking is prohibited, no smoking will be permitted within 25 feet of an entranceway, window or ventilation system of any University building or enclosed area.

When on campus, smokers are being asked to be careful and considerate when discarding their cigarette butts or other tobacco products. The new law requires that the University remove cigarette receptacles from areas on campus where smoking is prohibited. That means that smokers will have to fully extinguish their cigarettes when done and then place them in receptacles that will be located at least 25 feet from the entranceway of University buildings.

The law allows the University to adopt a policy prohibiting smoking anywhere on campus in the future.

The University is asking all smokers to be mindful of the restrictions in and
around buildings, and to be cautious and courteous when discarding cigarettes.

More information is available on the Ohio Department of Health's Web site.

Sections of the Exchange Street deck to be closed
through the remainder of the semester
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
Yesterday, contractors began repairs to the Exchange Street deck. Sections of the deck will be closed periodically over the remainder of the fall semester. It is not known precisely what sections will be closed on any given day.

Important: Resident students who park their cars overnight are urged to park elsewhere on campus until spring semester. Sections will be cordoned off first thing in the morning. If your car is in an area to be cordoned off, it could be towed at your expense. To help prevent this from happening, UA's Parking Services is posting fliers in residence halls, putting notices on cars parked in the deck and putting up signs.

Experts have recommended that the University make these repairs before winter arrives. The problem was discovered in late August, and it has taken a few weeks to plan the repairs, select a contractor and arrange for funding.

The contractor has been instructed to minimize the number of spaces that are closed off at any given time. In some cases, sections will be closed so that shoring can be put in place as a precaution.

The repairs are expected to continue through the end of the fall semester. Students and employees are urged to use the following alternative parking areas: Lots 7, 20, 32, 35 or 54.

Fifth of July & THE HOT L BALTIMORE Oct. 11 - Oct. 20
8:00 pm
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
This October, The University of Akron School of Dance, Theatre, and Arts Administration will celebrate acclaimed American playwright Lanford Wilson. The Lanford Wilson Festival features productions of two plays by Wilson. Fifth of July runs October 4-6 and Oct. 11-13 at 8 p.m. and October 7 at 2 p.m. at Sandefur Theatre in Guzzetta Hall, 157 University Ave. THE HOT L BALTIMORE runs Oct. 11-13 and Oct. 18-20 at 8 p.m. and October 14 at 2 p.m. at Paul A. Daum Theatre in Kolbe Hall, 328 Buchtel Common.

Also part of this festival is a week-long campus residency by acclaimed stage director Marshall Mason, who has collaborated with Lanford Wilson for more than 40 years. Mason’s residency is presented by the UA College of Fine and Applied Arts’ Mary Schiller Myers Lecture Series.

Tickets for individual performances are $10 general admission, and $6 for seniors and UA faculty, staff, and students. A $2 discount will be given when tickets are purchased for both productions. The ticket office call 330-972-7895. A group discount is available in advance for 10 or more patrons. Visit the website by clicking the Additional Information link below for more information. The mature content of these productions may not be suitable for younger audiences.

Fifth of July, directed by Susan Speers, Professor of Theatre at The University of Akron, is the first of a trilogy including Talley’s Folly and Talley and Son. These plays make up a cycle bout the Talley family of Lebanon, Missouri. As Kenneth Talley and his companion Jed are visited by friends and family, sharp, witty banter gives way to the lost hopes and dreams of the characters in a disillusioned America in the wake of the Vietnam War. Marshall Mason will be in attendance of this production on October 11th, where he will participate in a talk back session after the production.

Set in the lobby of a decaying residential hotel, THE HOT L BALTIMORE explores the lives of residents faced with eviction when their home is condemned. THE HOT L BALTIMORE is directed by Sean Cercone, familiar to area theatre lovers as Artistic Director of Carousel Dinner Theatre. Marshall Mason will be in attendance of this production on October 12th, where he will participate in a talk back session after the production.

The AHAP Fall Colloquium Series continues on Monday, October 15th at 10 am with Drs. Gerald Koocher and John Norcross. Join us for some interesting discussion as they enthusiastically present “Modern Psychoquackery: Discredited Treatments and Tests in Mental Health”.

Dr. Koocher is professor and dean of the School for Health Studies at Simmons College in Boston. He has over 25 years of experience in APA governance and is serving as the Past-President of the American Psychological Association. Dr. Koocher has a combination of research, teaching and clinical experience that focus on the professional and ethical aspects of psychology practice and scientific research. He also works with children and adults coping with chronic or life-threatening illnesses (especially cancer, cystic fibrosis and diabetes). Other areas of expertise include coping with bereavement and loss, psychological assessment and mental health malpractice. Koocher founded and is the editor of the journal Ethics & Behavior and has served as the editor of the Journal of Pediatric Psychology and The Clinical Psychologist. He was the first psychologist to earn five specialty diplomas from the American Board of Professional Psychology (clinical, clinical child/adolescent, family, forensic and health psychology). He has published more than 150 articles and book chapters and authored or edited eight books. Licensed in both Massachusetts and New Hampshire, Koocher has conducted a part-time independent practice in clinical and forensic psychology for more than 30 years. He has also served as principal investigator on competitively funded research grants from several private foundations and four federal agencies.

John C. Norcross, Ph.D., ABPP, is Professor of Psychology and Distinguished University Fellow at the University of Scranton, a clinical psychologist in part-time practice, and an internationally recognized authority on behavior change and psychotherapy. He is the author of more than 300 scholarly publications, and has co-written or edited 16 books. He is past-president of both the International Society of Clinical Psychology and the APA Division of Psychotherapy, a Council Representative of the APA, and on the Board of Directors of the National Register of Health Service Providers in Psychology. Dr. Norcross is also editor of Journal of Clinical Psychology: In Session and has been on the editorial boards of a dozen journals. He has received many professional awards and his work has been featured in hundreds of media interviews, and he has appeared on many national shows, such as the Today Show, CBS News Sunday Morning, and Good Morning America. An engaging teacher and clinician, Dr. Norcross has conducted workshops and lectures in 24 countries. He lives in the northeast Pennsylvania with his wife, two children, and their deranged cat.

We hope that you can join us on October 15th from 10 am – 11:30 am in Room 312 of the Student Union for an engaging talk and lively discussion afterward. This event is FREE and open to the public. For more information contact Dorothy Gruich at 330-972-7285 or email at the address below.

Nora Chipaumire, African contemporary dance artist Oct. 15

Nora Chipaumire, African contemporary dance artist and associate artistic director of Urban Bush Women, will talk about her work on Monday, Oct. 15, 8 p.m., in Guzzetta Recital Hall, 157 University Ave., at The University of Akron.

Free and open to the public, the talk begins a three-day residency by Chipaumire with The University of Akron Dance Program. A reception will follow the talk.

As a choreographer and dancer with a law degree from the University of Zimbabwe, Chipaumire investigates the collaborative process within cultural, political, economic, and technological identities of African contemporary life.
