14-Oct-16 — Water for Haiti project

ALFRED, NY (Oct. 13) – When Hurricane Matthew blew across Haiti early in October, it not only killed hundreds of island residents; it also devastated the basic mechanics of everyday life, including the collection of clean drinking water.

Alfred University Geology Professor Michele Hluchy notes much of Haiti’s drinking water is drawn from surface water sources: rivers and streams that now are crammed with storm debris and other waste, ripe breeding grounds for deadly public health hazards.

The dire situation has created an extraordinary level of urgency for a course Hluchy is teaching, “The Water Planet,” which this year is studying drinking water systems on Haiti and underscoring the need for groundwater infrastructure: mechanisms that pull safe, drinkable water from underground wells.


14-Oct-16 — AU to Award First Fiat Lux Awards in Pre-inaugural Festivities

ALFRED, NY (Oct. 14, 2016) – Fiat lux – “Let there be light” – has become a major leadership theme for AU President Mark Zupan, as he prepares for his formal inauguration as AU’s 14th president on Saturday, Oct. 22.

 “I want you to think about light,” Zupan told university faculty and staff, at the annual breakfast meeting that kicks off AU’s academic year. “Light illuminates, and thereby dispels darkness. Light also warms, and the warmth our students feel tells them ‘People care for me here.’”

Zupan now has initiated The Fiat Lux! Award, recognizing outstanding accomplishments of AU alumni, and will present the first three awards Friday, Oct. 21, at a pre-inaugural dinner on the AU campus.
