New director for Center of Performing Arts

Jerald Enos, director of the Center of Performing Arts in the College of Arts and Sciences, will be stepping down from this position at the end of the academic year, and Michael Zampelli, S.J. will assume the duties beginning Sept.1.

Zampelli brings a strong academic background in theater history as well as over 25 years' experience in acting and directing. He is an assistant professor at SCU, specializing in dramatury, directing and history of theater.

Jerry has served as director of the Center of Performing Arts from its founding in 1997.

One of his major contributions was serving as project coordinator for the the Music and Dance building, which was completed under his leadership in 1998.

As CPA director, Jerry has also worked to integrate the performing arts more fully into the core curriculum, obtained major grants to equip the Center with state of the art technology, hired distinguished new faculty, and fostered ongoing collaboration within the performing arts.

He also designed the stages for the Buck Shaw stadium commencements. 

SCU is again second in league's all-sports title  

Each year, the West Coast Conference presents awards for the top-performing athletic departments in the league as part of its WCC Commissioner's Cup competition.

In each of the first two years of the award's existence, Santa Clara has finished behind Pepperdine in second place in the standings, which is the case again in 2003-04.

Nominate for staff awards by May 18 

It is time to nominate staff members that you believe should be recognized for outstanding achievement during the past year. This year the University will be presenting five awards based on excellent achievement in support of the Strategic Plan:

  • Advancement of the University Mission
  • Community and diversity
  • Exemplary service
  • Efficient utilization of resources
  • Innovative program development

The person or team nominated must be comprised of staff members and their performance must be a model of excellence within one of these categories.

Staff members receiving an individual award will receive a $2,500 one-time bonus. Those members receiving an award as part of a team will share a $4,000 one-time bonus.

The amount of each award and the prestige associated with these five awards will be greater than in previous years and the overall program cost will be lower. For information and nomination forms, call Sara Sperling at 554-5489.
