During his 21-year association with the Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies at Johns Hopkins University, where he was research professor in U.S. foreign policy, he served as director of the Washing-ton Center of Foreign Policy Research (1977-80) and director of the SAIS Center of European Studies in Bologna, Italy (1972-76).
Simons critical contribution to the preservation of a constructive transatlantic dialogue offers the best evidence why he is so uniquely qualified to be the first occupant of the chair, said Brzezinski, a CSIS counselor and former national security adviser to President Jimmy Carter.
The center established the Brzezinski Chair last year to advance understanding in the fields of geostrategy, international security, European affairs and global politics. Reflecting Brzezinskis personal achievements during his career of political service and academic writing, the chair is awarded to a leading scholar from the fields of geostrategy, international security and global politics.
Earlier this summer, Serfaty drafted the Declaration on Renewing the Transatlantic Partnership and then worked with Harold Brown, former defense secretary, to secure the endorsement of a high-level, bipartisan group of 18 former senior U.S. officials. A major European response to the declaration was signed by 11 former heads of state or government and other European leaders.

The chair was made possible by a $1 million anonymous gift and marks the beginning of collaborative efforts between ODU and the Norfolk Botanical Garden to pursue activities in teaching and research related to botanical scholarship and practical horticultural applications in the mid-Atlantic region.
The establishment of the J. Robert Stiffler Chair is a significant step toward ODU becoming recognized as a national leader in biological sciences and particularly in horticulture and botany, said Richard Gregory, dean of the College of Sciences.
A national search for the new chair is under way and a candidate will be chosen by fall 2004. Ideally were looking for someone who works on plants of interest to regional gardeners, said Lytton Musselman, Mary Payne Hogan professor of botany and chair of the biological sciences department. This will be the Gardens first research position and it is an exciting step forward.
Don Buma, executive director of Norfolk Botanical Garden, added, This chair allows [us] to fulfill the research component of our mission, which we have not been able to accomplish until now. We all feel fortunate to have the opportunity for top-notch research to be conducted at our Garden.
The Stiffler Chair will be a tenure track position. The professor chosen will have office space at ODU and a greenhouse and research space at Norfolk Botanical Garden. The chair will teach classes, supervise graduate students and conduct research.
The author of Gardening in Southeastern Virginia & Northeastern North Carolina: The Best of 20 Years of Gardening Advice, Stiffler grew up in Iowa, where he began gardening with his mother and grandmother at the age of 5. He earned a degree in English and worked in marketing and advertising and in the agricultural and horticultural products industry.

The exhibition, on display through Nov. 16, consists of works for a site-specific installation in Graz, Austria, at the 2003 Festival of New Arts. Both the reception and exhibit are free.
This walk-through installation is displayed as a temple of work. Sixteen large-scale oil-on-wood portraits of workers form eight posts holding up an image of their creation. In both the installation in Graz and its studies on paper at the gallery, Schützenhöfer honors what is lost through privatization. He depicts the devastating effect on the hand-workers of Steyr Daimler Puch a 100-year-old Austrian manufacturer of military trucks and bicycles when it is bought by a Canadian cooperative, and on the hand-workers of Semperit a tire company of 107 years standing when it is sold to the Continental group of Europe. The studies for these installations and other work-related oils and drawings were done during the time the artist spent in the Steyr plant working on the production line.
Schützenhöfer has taught at Towson University.
The gallery, located at 350 W. 21st St., Norfolk, is open noon to 3 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday; noon to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday; and 1-4 p.m. Sunday. For more information call 683-2355. Back to top

No trees fell onto buildings, and Rogers Hall annex was the only building affected by groundwater flooding. Most of the ill effects from the high winds occurred on the roofs of buildings more than 100 leaks in all were discovered. Winds also blew the rain through several Batten Arts and Letters Building windows, forming small pools of water in some classrooms and offices.
More than 50 trees on campus were blown over or had major damage as a result of the storm. In addition, three light poles were knocked down.
In preparation for the hurricane, facilities management and housing services employees went through all of the buildings to look for potential problems and minimize them to the degree they could. On Wednesday, Sept. 17, the first day ODU was closed, they placed 2,000 sandbags at building doorways.
A total of 29 employees spent the day and night at the Physical Plant 0n Sept. 18, where they rode out the storm. A number of them slept overnight on cots. After the hurricane blew over, the damage assessment began, followed by a major cleanup effort.
It was a scary time to be working, but everybody hung in there, Tola said. We had 42 of our employees who volunteered to be here. Thats a high level of commitment to the university. The staff in facilities management, housing services, OCCS and public safety all did a tremendous job restoring the campus to normal operations. I would also like to thank the folks at dining services, who kept us all well fed during this time.
By the end of the day Sunday, Sept. 21, 162 facilities management employees had been on the job, taking care of the campus.
Although the center of Kaufman Mall was flooded, with water reaching the 3-foot level the afternoon of Sept. 18 due to heavy rain and backup from stormwater drainage systems, the campus experienced a lower than expected storm surge, Tola reported.
Power went out on campus earlier that day, and was restored in phases over the next few days. Generators were used to power Webb Center, the Ted Constant Convocation Center, the Office of Public Safety and residence halls with cafeterias. Because power had not been restored to Powhatan Apartments on Sunday, Sept. 21, the day students returned to campus, those who could not find rooms with others spent the night in the Health and Physical Education Building.
Tola and his crew learned a few lessons from the hurricane that should come in handy for the next one. He said the university needs to buy more portable generators, a large fuel tank and more chipping equipment for downed trees. Generators are not cheap to rent, and we found out that its hard to get fuel delivered during periods of high water, he noted. Back to top

Several other employees also were recognized for achievement in the divisions new Telephone Protocol Branding Contest.
The Gazelle Award was instituted in 1996 to recognize an employee in the division, nominated by his or her peers, who demonstrates, among other things, consistent exceptional performance of duties. Newberry was cited for her outstanding customer service and commitment to Old Dominion.
As noted in the nomination form, she demonstrates her commitment to ODU by consistently providing exceptional customer service, not only to her co-workers, but members of the university community, applicants and the general public. She is a conscientious and dedicated employee who projects a friendly, positive image.
Newberry came to Old Dominion in 1975, left in 1990 and returned in 1995.
The Department of Human Resources won the Telephone Protocol Branding Contest for its logo of a telephone noting the headings of each protocol. Tom Loizides of the Department of Computing and Communication Services won for his slogan, Make the Connection.
Earlier this year, the Office of Administration and Finance appointed a committee to establish proper telephone etiquette and protocol for everyone in the division.
