Around Campus

Several campus streets renamed

Several campus street names have recently been modified to reflect roadway rerouting and/or new construction.

On the south side of campus, the name Fishburne Drive (pending approval from DeKalb County) has been designated for the roadway beginning at Dowman Drive next to Glenn Church and running past Fishburne parking deck up to Clifton Road at the business school construction site. Asbury Circle now ends at Fishburne Drive just past Woodruff Library. The short roadway linking Fishburne Drive at the Rich Building with South Kilgo Street behind Carlos Museum will continue to be named Mizell Drive.

On the other side of Clifton Road, the previously unnamed roadway running between the sorority lodges and the MacMillan Law Library, and intersecting with Ridgewood Drive behind the Lowergate parking deck, has been named Gambrell Drive.

North of the railroad tracks, the portion of Michael Street from Clifton Road down to the Michael Street decks has been designated as a portion of Houston Mill Road, which continues on the other side of Clifton Road. The roadway previously named Dantzler Drive has been designated as a portion of Michael Street, which extends to an intersection with Clifton Road near Human Resources/Materiel Services. The service road between the Michael Street decks and the Rollins Center has been named Rollins Way, and the surface lot next to the School of Public Health (previously known as the Michael Street lot) has been renamed the Rollins visitor lot.

Faculty invited to luncheons on teaching

Provost Billy Frye along with the University Priorities Committee, the Faculty Council and the Commission on Teaching are hosting a luncheon series for faculty to discuss various aspects of the teaching mission at Emory.

About 400 faculty are participating in the series, which ends on Thursday, March 28. Faculty who would like to participate by attending lunch with six to eight faculty colleagues may call the Office of Institutional Planning and Research at 727-0765.

A series for staff will be announced soon.

Faculty Ethics Institute to focus on virtues

Emory's Faculty Ethics Institute will hold its fourth annual interdisciplinary forum for ethics study and faculty reflection regarding the impact of ethics on teaching, research and scholarship from May 14-24.

This year's institute will be led by Pamela Hall, associate professor of philosophy and women's studies, and will focus on the "Virtues." The theme of virtues will be connected with issues of skill and effectiveness in specific professions and disciplines. Seminar readings will be supplemented with short stories and/or films that address questions relevant to what virtue is and relations between virtue, heroism and tragedy.

Interested faculty should submit (1) a letter indicating their interest in the theme of the institute and describing past or current ethics-related scholarly work; and (2) a current curriculum vitae. Participants will receive a $400 stipend for participation in the institute. Applications should be sent by Friday, March 22, to Faculty Ethics Institute, 302 Dental Building.


In the article "Emory community loses three beloved longtime members" (Feb. 16), Dora Skypek, 1982 recipient of the Thomas Jefferson Award, was mistakenly identified as the first woman to receive the award. Evangeline T. Papageorge received the award in 1966, and Marella Walker received the award in 1980. We regret the error.
