Arts and Sciences Announces New Endowed Chair By Michael R. Haskins A $1.7 million bequest from the estate of Mary and Churchill Knapp, long-time friends of the University of San Diego, has made possible a new liberal arts endowed chair in the College of Arts and Sciences. Beginning next year, The Knapp Chair of Liberal Arts will provide funding for a spring semester visiting distinguished scho l- ar. The visitor will contribute to the College of Arts and Sciences through classroom teaching, public lectures, research, and interaction and collaboration with students and faculty. The chair will be rotated among departments in the humanities, social sci- ences, mathematics-computer sc ience and natural sciences divisions of the College. The social sciences area will host the first Knapp Chair in the spring of 1997. "Each year we expect to find somebody who takes the teaching mission seriously, who will enrich the experiences of both stu- dents and faculty and who will be an active member of the USO community," says Patrick Drinan, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. "Our facu lty are very excited about the opportunity to attract top people in their fields." Drinan adds that departments have a great deal of flexibility in their plans for the visiting scholars, but must submit a proposal explaining how the visitor's activities will benefit students, faculty and the College. An approved proposal will lead to selection of a candidate in coordination with the dean.

Last year's big winner stepped away with a cool $200, arm in arm with two $100 winners. Here's your chance to play the odds. Find your building's SEA repre- sentative and buy as many tickets as you like, the cost is two tickets for $1. See you at the picnic, noon to 3:30 p.m., June 7. In other news, SEA team walkers proudly strutted and strolled the 7.5-mile March of Dimes Walk-America course on April 27. Some team members trotted and sweat- ed the longer 12-mile course. Our team sported the special- ly designed Walk-a-bye- babies T-shirts and raised more than $2,000 for March of Dimes. Thanks to everyone who supported our walk with pledges, through buying T- shirts and attending the hot dog sales preceding the event. Special thanks go to the cooks at the hot dog sales. A few shirts are still available for $8. Call Becky Gilbert at ext. 2370 if you're interested in buying one. -Nancy Roos
Partnership (Continued from page one)
September 1994. The exchange was solidi- fied at last month's ceremony when Hayes and UIA's President Rozada signed the for- mal agreement papers. Theology and religious studies students will be the first to take courses across the border and receive credit for their work in Tijuana. The exchange is set to begin as early as next semester, with up to six stu- dents commuting to Mexico for a class, Wolf said. UIA students will have the same freedom to take courses here and receive credit at their schoo l. The religious studies departments at USO and UIA were the first to sign a sub-agree- ment detailing the work professors and stu- dents will do to further cross-cultural under- standing and learning. Ultimately, the goal is to form additional agreements between similar disciplines at the two universities. "The search for truth that surrounds this agreement transcends boundaries," Hayes said. "So we join today to direct our know- ledge toward the service of humanity."
