News Briefs

Damage to Scott Stadium seats being repaired
Work is in progress to repair damage to more than 3,200 seats in Scott Stadium that came loose during the Sept. 11 football game. Weather permitting, the seats are expected to be repaired by the Sept. 18 game against Akron.

During the last game, University officials were notified that bolts holding seats into the concrete in the west side upper deck of the stadium had come loose. No injuries were reported.This summer, all seats in the west side upper deck — part of a 1970s stadium addition — were taken out to patch and reseal the concrete surface. The seats were then reinstalled using bolts and epoxy, as specified by the project engineer. Preliminary inspections indicate that the epoxy failed to hold. Each ticket holder in sections 530 through 536 is being offered an option of receiving a $40 gift certificate for each ticket in the affected sections, redeemable at stadium merchandise booths through the 2004 season or, if preferred, receiving a $35 refund for each ticket held in the affected sections, said Athletics Director Craig K. Littlepage.

Next briefing on Charter Status Sept. 21
University officials are scheduling briefings for employees to explain the Commonwealth Chartered Universities Initiative, a new funding partnership with Virginia. The next meeting will be Sept. 21, at 10 a.m., in the new Harrison/Small Special Collections Library auditor-
ium and will last approximately one hour.

Employees who park in the garage beneath the University Bookstore will get their tickets validated at the meeting.

U.Va. is planning more briefings to accommodate employee schedules, with dates and times to be announced. Call U.Va. News Services at 924-7116 for details. Audio of the talks is online: www.virginia.edu/

USEMs course proposal deadline is Dec. 1
The deadline for schools and departments to submit course proposals for 2005-2006 University Seminars, or USEMs, will occur before the fall semester ends. This is an opportunity for faculty to work with a small group of students, mostly first-years, in an environment that encourages interactive learning and intensive discussion. The program gives first-year students the experience to work directly with faculty and explore a particular discipline in an in-depth manner. All faculty —
including general and retired — are encouraged to participate so enough of these popular seminars can be offered. The deadline for fall and spring proposals is Dec. 1. For information, contact Janet Yunessi at 982-2334 or yunessi@virginia.edu.

Volunteers needed, in case of large-scale emergency

Volunteers must be 18 years of age and have time for training and periodic meetings. For information, call Drew Ertel at 243-6250 or register online at www.uvamrc.org.
