Interviews with Dean of the Faculty Candidates - February 1 and 8
-----------------------------------------------
February 1 and February 8

ANTS is in the final stretch of the search for the Vice President For
Academic Affairs and Dean of the Faculty. Two candidates will be
brought to campus early in February; candidate no. 1 will be here Feb.
1-2 and candidate no. 2 will be on campus Feb. 8-9 (their names will be
released later this month by Pres. Carter).

Student interview opportunities:

February 1 for Candidate #1 and Feb. 8 for candidate # 2

11:00 am. - 12 noon: This is especially set aside for students and on
Feb. 1 Mia Douglas, student representative to the search committee, will
host the group. She cannot be present on Feb 8. so Karen Brockney will
host the group on that day. Karen is the staff rep. on the committee and
is a grad of ANTS. This session will be held in Upper Noyes.

The search committee understands that no single time will be possible
for all students so in addition to the above time which is specially
designated for students you are also welcome to come to either or both
of the other semi-public events. These are:

2:30 - 3:30 pm: While Staff and Alums will be invited to this session
it is also open to any who cannot make other sessions, so students are
most welcome to attend. It will be convened by Karen Brockney on both
Feb. 1 and 8 and will meet in the Peck Lounge.

3:45-4:45 pm: This session is designated for Trustees and the
Community so is also open to student attendance. On Feb. 1 it will be
hosted by Dorothy Williams, a member of the committee and on the 8th by
Tom McKibbens also a member of the committee. It will be in the Berkeley
Room. For this session the format is as follows; about 15 minutes for
informal conversation, a 20 minute presenation by the candidate on the
theme, "My understanding of the Role of the Dean of the Faculty here at
ANTS," and the rest of the time for questions.

As you know, the Dean of the Faculty will play a major role in the
future direction of ANTS so I hope many of you will mark these dates and
times on your calendars and plan to meet the candidates. Your feedback
is important!

Thank you,

Nancy Nienhuis
Dean of Students and Community Life

THOMAS MERTON ON CONTEMPLATIVE LIVING IN EVERYDAY LIFE - Jan. 10, 2006
-------------------------------------------------------------
Tuesday, Jan. 10
7:00 p.m. at Regis College

Presented by Robert G. Toth, Executive Director, The Thomas Merton
Foundation
Center for Contemplative Living in Louisville, Kentucky
Tuesday, January 10, 2006 7:00 p.m.
Regis College 235 Wellesley Road
Weston, MA College Hall, Conference Room 202
Free and open to the public.

This presentation will focus on Thomas Merton's insights on
contemplative
living which are more pertinent today than ever before. Contemplative
living
means living in right relationship with one's self, God, others and
nature
to fully experience well-being and purpose in life. Merton helps us
address
the tension between the sacred and secular, between contemplation and
action, and between spirituality and religion in our everyday lives.
