February 17th, 2016

Stancil Campbell, Professor of Theatre at AUC, made two presentations at Wake Forest University in February 2015. On Monday, February 9th at 7pm, he directed a staged reading of the refugee play “Waiting for Hope,” followed by discussion of refugee theatre in Cairo. “Waiting for Hope” was developed by African refugees at the St. Andrew’s Drama Club under the direction of Campbell. Current Wake Forest students participated in the reading. On Tuesday, February 10th at 6pm, Campbell delivered a lecture and slide presentation entitled “Egyptian Theatre in Process.” His presentation covered major issues and concerns of producing theatre in both pre-revolution and post-revolution Egypt. Both events were in Scales 102 (Art Wing). The events were funded by the Middle East and South Asian Studies (MESA) Program and the Department of Theatre and Dance.

Stancil Campbell, Professor in the Department of the Arts, completed a Habitat for Humanity project in the mountains of Guatemala near Tecpan in June 2015. This particular project was one of Habitat’s first that focused on health and sanitation in impoverished rural communities within Guatemala. The team of 20 volunteers ranged in age from 16 to 80. Included on the team was Dr. Ann Lesch, former Dean of HUSS and VP at AUC. Following well over a decade of volunteer work with Habitat for Humanity, Stancil plans to lead his next international Global Village team to Jordan in November 2016. Anyone interested in joining the team should make contact by email: stancil@aucegypt.edu

Stancil Campbell (Professor in the Department of the Arts) just completed another Habitat for Humanity project in the mountains near San Marcos, Guatemala. This particular project was Habitat’s first venture into earthquake reconstruction in Central America. A devastating earthquake struck this region of Guatemala in November 2012 and this past October, three teams of volunteers were sent to rebuild many of the damaged homes. The new homes are steel reinforced and engineered to withstand earthquake tremors without damage. Following well over a decade of volunteer work with Habitat for Humanity, Stancil has recently completed formal leadership training with the organization and plans to lead international Global Village teams to Guatemala in June 2014 and to India in January 2015. Anyone interested in joining one of these teams should make contact by email: stancil@aucegypt.edu

Stancil Campbell, Professor in the Department of the Arts, recently designed lighting for the Citadel Theatre’s production of Eugene O’Neill’s “Long Day’s Journey Into Night.” The Citadel Theatre is one of Canada’s largest professional regional theatres and is located in downtown Edmonton, Alberta. O’Neill’s Pulitzer Prize winning play is an autobiographical account of an August day in 1912 with his family in Connecticut. This production marked the opening show of the Citadel Theatre’s 2013-14 season. Campbell also designed the company’s closing production of Monty Python’s “Spamalot” for their 2012-13 season in April.

Stancil Campbell (Professor in the Department of the Arts) spent several weeks in June and July 2013 as assistant team leader with a Habitat for Humanity team that worked to complete a house in the mountain town of Apaneca, El Salvador. During their time in El Salvador, the team worked on flooring, doors and windows, plumbing, electrical, and painting. By the end of their work, the house was ready for the owners to move in with their family. Following well over a decade of volunteer work with Habitat for Humanity, Stancil has begun formal leadership training with the organization and plans to lead international Global Village teams in the coming years after retiring from AUC.

November 1st, 2012

Stancil Campbell, Professor in the Department of the Arts, spent several weeks in August 2012 as a volunteer with a Seeds of Learning (SOL) team that worked in the small mountain village of La Aguna, in the Matagalpa region of Nicaragua. The work project was to renovate a coffee warehouse into a new school building. The finished school will
have 3 rooms, a hallway, an outdoor stage for events, two bathrooms, and a guest room for visiting teachers and artists. SOL has worked closely with the Nicaraguan Ministry of Education for about 20 years to provide needed educational assistance that is appropriate to  local communities. The SOL mission is to expand school facilities, improve teaching methods, and enhance teaching resources.

Dear Colleagues:

What follows is a list of all Faculty Support Grants approved from the September application cycle. (Graduate Student Grants are now handled by Dr. Amr Shaarawi, Dean of Graduate Studies; inquiries can be made with his office.) All unsuccessful applicants have already been informed by email. If you think you have been wrongly omitted from the list, or if there is a typographical or other error in your listing, please let me know at gharman@aucegypt.edu. Such mistakes are easy to fix. Please note that under the new travel policy, my office will initially only be processing checks for the non-travel portion of your grant. As for the travel portion, you can either (a) book your tickets through the AUC Travel Office, or (b) book them yourself. The procedures for the two cases are as follows:

(a) The Travel Office will receive a list from me of everyone approved for travel for this cycle, including the destination and approximate dates. Since not everyone will choose to use the Travel Office, they will not automatically book your tickets for you; you must contact them to make this request, but please wait until at least Sunday, October 23 before doing so. Once the Travel Office tells us that you are booking through them, we will then pay the cost. Naturally, this amount will count against your annual maximum (which is $3,500 for Conference Grants and $6,500 for Research Grants).

(b) If you choose to book the tickets yourself, you must be reimbursed after travel is complete, after presenting your boarding passes for the whole of the trip. Please note that the amount of reimbursement will be determined by the Travel Office. If for some reason you need a more complicated itinerary than direct travel to the research/conference site, you are allowed to book such an itinerary, but of course you will only be reimbursed for what the fair price would have been for a direct route. Naturally, this amount will count against your annual maximum.

Important Note: faculty are not allowed more than the maximum amount in each grant category for any reason. If for example the airfare and per diem for a distant conference add up to more than $3,500, you may be left with some out-of-pocket expenses. Faculty are encouraged to consider this point when deciding on which conferences to attend during any given academic year.

Another Important Note (October 19): We do not process Conference Grants for which the letter of acceptance is still pending until the letter of acceptance is forwarded to my office.

Dr. Graham Harman, Associate Provost for Research Administration
