University of North Dakota teams risk forfeiting any post-season games if their athletes, cheerleaders or band wear or display the school's Fighting Sioux nickname and American Indian head logo, an NCAA official said Wednesday.
The new symbol of Xavier University's power and authority stands 3 1/2 feet tall and weighs 27 pounds. It's made of bronze, copper and finely carved mahogany, and it contains a shred of clothing that once belonged to a saint.
The University of Texas at San Antonio campus is dominated by modern cream-colored buildings with dark red tile roofs and acres of parking lots, testimony to 40 years of serving largely as a commuter school for students from the surrounding area.
In an open letter addressed Tuesday to “the citizens of the state of North Dakota,” UND’s student body president urged that people allow the university and its students to put the Fighting Sioux nickname controversy behind them.
Once a school like Penn State or Syracuse has gone through the ethical and public relations disaster of a child sexual abuse scandal ... what comes next? How do you fix what’s broken? Can you even think about rebuilding the brand?
Yes ... but it’s tough. It takes character, both for the organization and on a personal level.
Emerging from this kind of crisis means going through three different stages: denial, damage control, and decision. Lots of people, and lots of institutions, never make it through to that third stage.
Social networking, online banking, entertainment... There’s an app for that—and for everything else you can think of. When it comes to higher ed, there’s an app for that, too. From behind-the-scenes mobile CRM apps to in-your-face athletic program apps, campus administrators are developing ways to make students’, administrators’, and faculty members’ lives a bit easier (or just more fun).
