For Jeanne Riley, pictured above, the inspiration for her latest quilt, “October 2nd,” was as simple as the fall season. “‘October 2nd’ was my fifth autumn quilt, because those colors get into my psyche every fall and inspire me,” says Riley, assistant to the dean in the School of Architecture. “The title of the piece is actually a play on words, since I already had a quilt named ‘October.’”
      Riley’s quilt was voted Best of Show by those who visited the University’s On My Own Time exhibition last spring at E.S. Bird Library. The exhibition featured 147 works of art by 50 SU employees. Faculty and staff submitted artwork in the categories of painting, ceramics, printmaking, drawing, sculpture, photography, collage/assemblage, fiber art, glasswork, computer art, metal work, and mixed media.
      On My Own Time, a community arts program cosponsored by the Cultural Resources Council and the Everson Museum of Art, was established in 1974 to showcase the artistic talents of individuals employed by local businesses. The last time SU hosted an On My Own Time exhibition was in 1992. This year’s exhibit was sponsored by the Office of the Chancellor. Mary Ann Shaw, associate of the Chancellor, served as honorary chair.

Syracuse University’s new college to be created through a consolidation of the College for Human Development, the College of Nursing, and the School of Social Work—will be known as the College of Human Services and Health Professions.
      The name, chosen by faculty and staff members of the new college, was announced in May by then-School of Social Work Dean William L. Pollard, who will head the new college.
      "The name encompasses what this new college will be,” says Pollard. “The language, and the sentiment expressed by the name, is agreed upon by almost everyone involved.”
      The College of Human Services and Health Professions will become an official academic unit at SU beginning with the fall 2001 semester. The three colleges will continue to exist as stand-alone academic units until that time.
      One component of the College for Human Development, the recently renamed Department of Retail Management and Design Technologies, will become part of the College of Visual and Performing Arts.
