Changes regarding accounting procedures announced

Accounts Payable and Payroll officials have reversed their decision to eliminate the drop box outside the Administration Building, citing concerns voiced about the accessibility of their offices once they move to 1762 Clifton Road, where Human Resources and Purchasing are also located. The box will stay, and payroll and accounts payable documents can still be placed there. The box's contents will be picked up twice a day, once before 7 a.m. and again at 1 p.m.

Also, as of noon Friday, April 16, all computer-printed checks and deposit advices from both offices will be available at the Bursar's Office on the first floor of the B. Jones Center. Manual checks will be distributed at the Clifton Road location.

For more information, call 404-727-6090 for accounts payable or 404-727-6100 for payroll.

Kreuter delivers annual DeHaan lecture today

Health promotion expert Marshall Kreuter of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will present the 10th Annual Virginia S. DeHaan Lecture on Health Promotion and Education today, April 12, at 6 p.m. in the Alperin Auditorium of the 1525 Building.

Kreuter is associate director for Health Promotion Policy and Program Development in the Division of Adult and Community Health at the CDC.

The lecture honors Genie DeHaan, an outstanding faculty member and alumna of the Rollins School of Public Health who pioneered the development of the school's health promotion and education track. Her family, friends and students established the lecture series in 1990 to bring national visibility to the school.

The lecture and reception are free and open to the Emory community. For information call 727-3739.

Witte receives Lilly grant, Princeton's Kuyper Prize

The largest grant yet to Emory's Law and Religion program has been given to its director, John Witte.

Witte received a four-year, $546,350 grant from the Lilly Endowment to prepare four new books, articles and public lectures on law, religion and the Reformed tradition. His research findings are expected to make a case for a distinctive Protestant theology, jurisprudence and ethic addressed to some of today's issues such as marriage, family and sexuality; freedom, human rights and rule of law; and authority, church-state relations and constitutional order.

Witte also has been named recipient of this year's Abraham Kuyper Prize for Excellence in Reformed Theology and Public Life, awarded by Princeton Theological Seminary. The award carries a cash prize of $10,000 and is presented each year to an outstanding scholar or community leader who has contributed to the development of Reformed theology, particularly as it relates to law, business, technology, education, economics and the arts. Witte will receive the award at a ceremony April 7 at Princeton, where he will give a lecture titled "God's Joust, God's Justice: The Revelations of Legal History."
