Hesburgh Award, along with $30,000 from TIAA-CREF, during annual conference in Washington D.C. BY JARED BLACKLEY OF THE NETXNEWS STAFF UVSCs "Ethics Across the Curriculum" program received national acclaim last Monday at the American Council on Education's annual conference in Washington D.C. ' UVSC was presented with the coveted Theodore M. Hesburgh Award for Faculty Development to Enhance Undergraduate Teaching and Learning, which carries with it $30,000 from TIAA-CREF, a company that provides retirement security for higher education employees. UVSC President Kerry Romesburg said that the money will be used to endow the ethics program with a yearly reserve. The award is named in honor of Rev. Theodore M. Hesburgh, C.S.C., president emeritus of the University of Notre Dame, and distinguished world humanitarian. "This is really an amazing honor for the school," Romesburg said. UVSC, the only higher-education institution in Utah to have won the award, joins the ranks of previous winners such as Georgia Institute of Technology, Syracuse University, Loyola Marymount University, University of Delaware and Miami Dade Community College. "Ethics and Values" has been a required class at UVSC since it was first taught in 1986. Since that time, UVSC has also held summer seminars for faculty members to explore teaching ethical issues in their various disciplines. On average, about 50 faculty members participate in these seminars, which feature nationally esteemed scholars. And as the ethics program expanded, UVSC began hosting faculty seminars and workshops every semester. In 1992, Elaine Englehart, assistant vice president for academic affairs at UVSC, created the Center for the Study of Ethics to organize year-round seminars for both students and faculty concerning the ethical questions and dilemmas they will undoubtedly face at work and throughout the course of their lives. "The mission of the Center for the Study of Ethics is to explore the ethical dimensions of a wide array of disciplines and contemporary moral issues in open, public discussion," said Dr.David Keller, director of the Center for the Study of Ethics and assistant professor of philosophy at UVSC. The Ethics Across the Curriculum program extends "the study of ethics beyond the Philosophy department into programs across campus," said Keller. While auto-repair students are discussing ethical quandaries that can arise while working at the shop, said Lucille Stoddard, UVSC vice president for academic affairs, conservation biology students will be discussing the uses of public land in a classroom on the other side of campus.

Gardner speaks at UV By JAMES EAST0N OF THE NETXNEWS STAFF On Wednesday, student leaders from high schools all over the valley and several UVSC students gathered to hear advice from Olympic wrestling champion, Rulon Gardner. Those in attendance also enjoyed hearing from Professor David Litchford, Baron Rhobock, and Charles S. Farnsworth. David Litchford, a professor from UVSCs business department spoke or performed with all of the enthusiasm and excitement of an evangelical preacher. Professor Litchford's emphasis was on the letters B.T.O. "Be the One." He encouraged the leaders to "set the standards and exhibit the performance to set the benchmark." He talked about how to become an organizational hero, the person everybody looks to for an example, encouragement, and inspiration. His presentation helped everybody get excited about the conference, and set the tone for the rest of the day. Former student body president Baron Rohbock said that a good leader "orchestrates the strengths and weaknesses of a group and brings them together to form uncommon results." Everybody within any given group is irreplaceable, everyone has their strength, and one person cannot do the job by themselves. He went on to say that leaders are put into their position to serve, and they lead by example. Baron told the students that success started with them. It was their opportunity to change the world.

His presentation was highlighted with personal philosophies, as well as his seven steps for governing life. Charles S. Farnsworth, from Franklin Covey, was the next speaker. A much more technical speaker, Mr. Farnsworth spoke about several things. He referred to a personal "rule of four," enhancing our abilities to be an example. They were: "What are we doing to increase our self esteem?" "How do we interact, and do we value those relationships?"

Fans dialed 1-800-TICKETS a total of 570,000 times, but completed only 1,600 ticket orders throughout Tuesday. Busy signals were common again Wednesday as overwhelmed operators tried to handle the flood of calls. Only 50 operators were taking the calls. This week marks the beginning of a new ticketing phase for Americans who placed ticket orders months ago, but couldn't get everything they paid for and now are competing for a dwindling supply of tickets to less popular events. Organizers could only encourage fans to keep hitting the redial button. "Every time we flub up, every time we make a mistake, we hurt our credibility, so we try to get it right, but we're not always successful," said Romney, the president of the Salt Lake Organizing Committee.. Romney said the "monumental task" of trying to meet demand was like trying to sell tickets to 15 Super Bowls at once. "We won't be able to meet everybody's wishes. I wish we could manufacture a gadzillion more tickets," Romney said. The SLOC is nearing $161 million in U.S. ticket sales, not far off the $180 million it expects to achieve by next February, when the games take place. A few events, such as cross-country skiing, aren't expected to sell out. But the ticket stampede is a sign to Romney that organizers will be able to raise enough money to cover the $1.3 billion games. "We are confident the games will break even and not only be free of any debt for taxpayers but will in fact return to (Utah) taxpayers the $59 million that was spent to build venues plus a $40 million endowment to maintain them. So the taxpayers come out ahead," he said.

Just about everyone has a computer in their home and is familiar with the process of electronic mail. E-mailing has become a major source of communication between friends, families, work, students, and professors. Many jobs require computer literacy and modern-day communication through e-mailing work schedules, goals, tasks, and assignments. In the cyber world of communication through e-mail, there is an increased opportunity for error in communicating the message intended to be received. The reason for this is the absence of visual and audible messages through body language, facial expressions, and tone of voice. Not only is there an absence of visual and audible messages but each person also communicates and perceives information differently.There is a way to effectively communicate the intended message to the receiver, but it requires knowledge of the communication style and personality type of oneself and those with whom one communicates. Psychologist Carl Jung says that there are four different personality types: Thinkers, feelers, sensers, and intuitors. In conjunction with Carl Jung's different types of personality traits, Maureen Sullivan, author of E-Speak: Everything You Need to Know Before Continued pg. 3 See "Personality" TRAX NEWS SALT LAKE CITY (AP) University of Ulah and mass transit officials are hoping the federal government will agree to help pay to extend Salt Lake's light rail system to University Hospital.

Tips to help in building a resume By JAMES EAST0N OF THE NETX NEWS STAFF This spring, hundreds of thousands of20-some-things will graduate from college, all looking for that career that will set them up for life. And if they don't want to be putting cheese on patties for the rest of their lives, they will need to know how to write a resume. The importance of a resume is well known, but to most job seekers, how to prepare that perfect resume is not common knowledge.Dr. Arnold W. Schaeffer, Ph.D., an accomplished career counselor in Florida, wrote a book detailing seven steps to a resume that leads to success. The first step has two parts: The first part is summarizing your qualifications. A future employer will need to see immediately what kind of skills that you have to offer the company. The next part is the objective. This includes your description of the specific job you are seeking. Being specific is the key here. If you can't be specific, don't put it on the resume. After your qualifications, you will also want to include a brief summary of your education any degrees, institutions attended, graduation date, honors, related projects, and your GPA (if it's higher than a 3.0). Let your future employer know what you have learned in the field you hope to work, but don't waste hisher time. Keep things simple, brief, and to the point. The next part of the resume is your work experience. Include only your significant work experience and include relevant volunteer work or internships anything that might display your skills. When listing your past employment, include the title of your position, the name of the organization, location, and the dates you held the position. Then describe your work experience. Again, be specific. Your employer will want to know exactly what you have to offer him. If she has to read about how you flipped the fastest burger in the county, she'll throw your resume away. Next, you will want to have a category of your Continued pg. 3 see "Resume"
