Wise campus gets marker
A new state historical marker about the founding of U.Va.’s only branch campus in Wise, Va., 50 years ago was unveiled Sept. 20. State and college officials dedicated the marker at a ceremony at U.Va.-Wise. The marker says: “The college was founded in 1954 as Clinch Valley College of the University of Virginia, through the efforts of
local citizens and University of Virginia officials including President Colgate W. Darden Jr.; Samuel R. Crockett,
extension services director in Southwest Virginia; and George Zehmer, director of the extension division.
Located on the former Wise County Poor Farm, the college began as a two-year coeducational branch of U.Va. In 1970, Clinch Valley College awarded its first bachelor’s degrees. In 1999, it became The University of Virginia’s College
at Wise. It is a nationally recognized public,
liberal arts college.”

‘Professors as Writers’ program to begin
Writing is integral to a professor’s job, whether it’s preparing lectures or analyzing lab results. To help faculty, especially junior faculty, meet the challenges of academic writing, the Teaching Resource Center and the provost’s office are starting a new program called “Professors as Writers.” Its interactive format of workshops, presentations and colloquia will focus on various aspects of academic writing and publishing.
The first session, “The Challenges of Writing for Faculty in the Humanities and Social Sciences,” will take place Oct. 6 from 1:15 p.m. to 3:15 p.m. in the Newcomb Hall South Meeting Room. It will offer an opportunity for faculty members to voice their concerns and hear from panelists who have written and published in their disciplines successfully. The next session is planned to focus on faculty in the sciences and engineering.
To register, go to http:// trc.virginia.edu/Workshops/2004/PAW_Workshop_Registration.htm.

All works that are currently on view at the museum are eligible to be the subject of a piece of creative writing for submission. The contest is open to three different age groups: students in grades 3 through 12, University students and adults. All

In addition to tours of the exhibits, museum docents will hold information sessions on Oct. 10 from 3:30 p.m. to 5 p.m., and Nov. 2 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Ted Genoways, editor of the “Virginia Quarterly Review,” will be the final poetry judge, and Paul Barolsky, Commonwealth Professor of Art History, will be the final prose judge.
Winners will be honored at a ceremony in February, and an anthology will be published.
For information, call Deryn Goodwin at 924-7458.

Young researchers awarded
Two interdisciplinary researchers at the University — Richard Kent, assistant professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering, and Shayn Peirce, assistant professor in biomedical engineering — were named to Technology Review’s 2004 list of the world’s 100 Top Young
Innovators on Sept. 20.

Selected by the editors of Technology Review, a magazine published by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and a panel of judges, the TR100 list recognizes scientists under the age of 35 whose work may have a profound impact on technology. They will be honored in Boston on Sept. 29-30.
Kent, who holds a joint appointment in engineering and medicine, conducts research with the department of mechanical and aerospace engineering and teaches in the
department of emergency medicine. His research in the Center for Applied Biomechanics, which conducts a broad array of
research related to automobile safety, focuses on developing “smart” seat belts and airbags.

Peirce has designed complex, quantitative, predictive computer models that have the potential to speed up the development of new medical treatments relating to tissue growth and repair, such as birth defects, chronic heart disease and diabetes.
