USU Employee Giving Campaign


Every year employees demonstrate an extraordinary spirit of community by participating in the USU Employee Giving Campaign. This year, the USU Employee giving campaign begins March 2 and lasts through March 31.

Employees can contribute to their passions: students, staff development and the local Community - the possibilities are unlimited. And every dollar given is more than just a gift; it is an investment in Utah State University. Your participation also boosts student recruitment and retention, helps foster the support of outside donors, advances academic research, study, and initiatives, provides development opportunities for staff and give back to this beautiful community we live in.

Visit employeegiving.usu.edu and make a donation today.

Haikus, Modernism and Stanton MacDonald-Wright


Stanton MacDonald-Wright’s “Haiga Portfolio” (1965-1966) blends Eastern and Western influences, pairing vibrant modernist paintings with haikus written by some of Japan’s most influential poets.
The term “haiga” refers to a style of Japanese painting by haiku poets, whose poems are known for their brevity and simplicity. Each of the ten prints that compose the “Haiga Portfolio” have a corresponding haiku.
The “Haiga Portfolio” exemplifies the 20th century modernist movement Synchromism, cofounded in 1913 by MacDonald-Wright and Morgan Russell. The movement sought to arrange color in the same way that sound is composed in music and is considered the first American avant-guard movement to be accepted internationally. Seventy-five years old at the time of the portfolio’s creation, MacDonald-Wright employed the use of energetic, swirling shapes coupled with dense, vivid colors orchestrated in the modernist style and the rhythm of Synchromism.

Sky Above, Earth Below: A History of Western Landscape Photography


“Sky Above, Earth Below” traces the development of western landscape photography from the late 19th century to the 21st century, starting with early American photographers like Myra Albert Wiggins, Edward Curtis, and Karl Struss and concluding with contemporary photographers like Barry Andersen, Kimberly Anderson, Karalee Kuchar, and Charlotte Trolinger. The exhibition includes work from members of the Seattle Camera Club, FSA (Farm Security Administration), f/64 (a group of 20th-century photographers known for precise exposures and depiction of natural forms) and contemporary photography portfolios such as American Roads (printed in 1981), The Museum Project (printed in 2015), and DEMARCATION (printed in 2018).

Thomas Campbell: Lint Basket Supremeo and Unii Ciøn Yyikæ


Thomas Campbell is an interdisciplinary media maestro who creates eloquent and romantic narratives about the fringes of contemporary American culture in a variety of formats, including sculpture, ceramics, music, printmaking, painting, photography, drawing, and film.

A two-part, two-gallery sequence, "Lint Basket Supremeo" (a multi-medium survey) and "Unii Ciøn Yyikæ" (new works) give a sense of Campbell’s creative output over the last ten years leading up to today, including new works created during an artist residency at Utah State University’s Department of Art & Design last fall.

[CANCELED] Department Colloquium: The Fourier pseudo-spectral numerical schemes for nonlinear PDEs and their stability


Speaker: Cheng Wang, Professor, Department of Mathematics, University of Massachusetts Dartmouth

Abstract: The Fourier pseudo-spectral numerical schemes are considered for nonlinear partial differential equations (PDE). Stability and convergence analysis are analyzed in detail, such as viscous Burgers' equation and incompressible fluid equations. Related applications to the incompressible quasi-geostrophic equation will also be addressed, in both 2-D and 3-D, for smooth and vortex sheet initial data. In addition, high order time-stepping schemes (up to fourth-order accuracy order) will be explored in detail. Unconditional stability is established for the implicit time-stepping algorithms.
