Gould Auditorium, first floor Marriott Library
I will especially miss Zeke’s intellectual curiosity. Even toward the end of his life, he welcomed and wanted to hear new ideas from all areas of campus. He loved asking questions of everyone he met — faculty, staff and students alike. His enthusiasm and energy were unmatched. He and Kay were more than just philanthropists; they were partners in helping the university achieve its mission.
My condolences go out to his daughters Betsy, Claire, and Andrea, his son Zeke III, and their families. On behalf of the entire University of Utah community I want to thank the Dumke family for sharing Zeke with us. We will miss him.”
— President Ruth V. Watkins

In her research efforts, Whittaker-Brooks will use part of the award to develop novel materials that can become transistors in an alternative electronics system called spintronics. Unlike conventional electronics, where the charge of electrons is used to store information in transistors, spintronics uses the spin (angular momentum) of electrons to carry digital information. Whittaker-Brooks is focusing on three different metal-carbon hybrid molecules, looking for materials with, in her words, “fundamentally tunable spin that operate with high reliability, low potential for overheating, low cost, and minimization of defects.”
In her teaching, Whittaker-Brooks intends to design an interdisciplinary general chemistry course that incorporates hands-on activities and evidence-based teaching methods “while fostering a culture of inclusivity,” she says, “across the rapidly diversifying demographics at the University of Utah.”

Websites using GSA will remain fully functional. Sites with their own GSA search collection (i.e., searches that only look in a specific “collection” of sites) will be migrated to a GCSE collection, and continue to function as before. University Information Technology’s University Support Services (USS) team will migrate campus OmniUpdate (OU) websites to use a local GCSE search page, as has been done with it.utah.edu.
Even though search boxes will remain fully functional, campus web developers are encouraged to make changes to existing search code, and take advantage of the ability to host a local search results page. Instructions are available here.
Barb Iannucci, USS associate director of Content Management & Usability, will host a UIT Talks event on Tuesday, April 24, 2018, 1-1:30 p.m., to address any remaining questions.
If you would like further instructions and guidance, please email Iannucci at email@example.com.

Who can participate? Volunteers who are willing to share samples and data for research. These can be family, friends and anyone who wants to help advance our knowledge on cancer.
How do I participate? You are willing to give blood, and possibly other samples from your body such as urine, stool and saliva. You are willing to fill out questionnaires in regards to your physical and emotional health, and lifestyle. We would also like to collect information and samples at six, 12 and 24 months after you join the study. This is optional.
Why should I take part? This study is an opportunity to contribute samples and information that will be used to accelerate cancer research and improve patient care. Participants like you are vital to our success.
We invite you to participate in this important research or learn more.If you have study questions or want to participate please contact: SUPPORT Study Team at 801-213-6166 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Maximize your summer break with an intensive course May 7 – 11. Courses are offered Monday through Friday 8 AM – 5 PM with a one hour lunch. Course locations are on the Main Campus as well as at the University of Utah’s Sandy Center. Intensive classes will be as rigorous as a semester-long class and requires attendance at each class session. In addition to time spent in the classroom, students will be required to complete pre and post work. Explore courses at flexibleoptions.utah.edu. Questions? Call 801-585-9963.
