Art and Design Professor's Coeur d'Alene Sculpture Encourages Marriage Equality Conversation

Posted Wed, 26 Sep 2018 14:35:00 -0700

Congratulations to Art and Design Associate Professor Casey Doyle whose sculpture of two giant diamond rings is standing tall in Coeur d'Alene's Riverstone Park in an effort to spark marriage equality dialogue. Set alongside the North Idaho Centennial Trail, Doyle's sculpture measures 16 feet tall and 30 feet wide. On June 25, 2016 — one year after the Supreme Court ruled same-sex marriage constitutional — Doyle gathered with friends, family, community members and now-husband to activate the artwork at the site.

Posted Fri, 05 Jan 2018 11:00:00 -0800

A big thank you to Delora Shoop (Student Accounts) and Chris Menter (Registrar's)! Also to Karee Head (Admissions.) A new method of fee assessment caused problems with the charges for our American Language & Culture Program students. Delora and Chris not only solved the problem within a few hours, they both looked at each individual record of approx. 50 ALCP students to make sure each one was corrected. Karee helped investigate the mystery with her expertise. We are impressed with their eagerness & speed at finding a solution, and grateful for the time and care they invested into making it all right. Thank you so much! Read more
