Spring Quarter class will offer real-world philanthropic corollary By ADRIANNA RODRIGUEZ

A group of individuals have stolen copper piping from Evanston religious institutions five times since the beginning of the year, a worrying trend for owners of older buildings with the pricey copper gutters and downspouts. Three different Evanston churches have reported the theft of copper downspouts on the exteriors of their buildings since January. The Evanston Police Department believes the same group of individuals are perpetrating these thefts, EPD Spokesperson Cmdr. Jay Parrott said. Thieves have stolen downspouts from St. Nicholas Parish, 806 Ridge Ave., several times in the last five weeks, church business manager Suzanne Lefevre said. The recent incidents are the third major thefts in two years at the church, Lefevre said. Built in 1904, St. Nicholas has at least two of its five buildings equipped with copper gutters and downspouts, Lefevre said. The rest have downspouts made of galvanized steel. Lefevre said the thieves located the copper fixtures ahead of time and targeted those specifically. Because it is fairly easy to pry the copper off the building, the thieves generally work at night or in the early morning and
The School of Education and Social Policy will offer a new class during Spring Quarter in which students will allocate $100,000 to a philanthropic organization of their choice. The class, “Learning Philanthropy: Engaging in the Study and Practice of Giving,” will be taught by SESP Dean Penelope Peterson and Lauren Jones Young, former director of the Spencer Foundation, which aims to support education-related research. Offered for the first time this year, Peterson and Young are already planning to include the course in the SESP curriculum in future years. According to the course description, the money was made available through an initiative by the Once Upon a Time Foundation of Fort Worth, Texas, an organization that Peterson said has given money to other universities in the past for similar courses. The organization approached SESP with the proposal a year ago, and the school has been preparing for the course throughout the year. Peterson said her aim for the class is to teach students how philanthropy improves the lives of children, youth, families and adults. “Not Not only does it only does it improve improve people’s people’s lives to improve l i v e s t o organizations, improve organibut also the zations,” idea is that the Peterson said. “But person who also the gives the money idea is that person benefits in some the who gives way. the money benefits in Penelope Peterson, some way.” SESP dean The class will consist of 33 students who were required to submit an application by Feb. 11. The application asked students what they would do if they were given $10,000 to donate to a cause. Peterson said the class will be interdisciplinary and should not be viewed only as a sociology course. The plan is to incorporate all perspectives in the science of philanthropy, including those in economics, political science and psychology. “The issues that we are dealing with are too complex to be solved by one discipline — no one discipline can have the answer,” she said. “You have to bring different

On Campus Storyteller relates LGBTQ experiences Judaism, tradition, family emphasized in S. Bear Bergmanâ€™s suite of stories
An episode on a Big Ten Network television series airing Wednesday night will highlight reporting initiatives at both Northwesternâ€™s Evanston campus and Northwestern University in Qatar, according to a University news release. Students from NU-Qatarâ€™s journalism program in Doha and Immigrant Connect will be featured at 11 p.m. Wednesday night on â€œBTN LiveBig,â€? a new series piloted earlier this winter. The show focuses on spotlighting some of the non-athletic global initiatives that Big Ten institutions are engaging in. Created by Medill Prof. Jack Doppelt, the online network Immigrant Connect aggregates news and information for communities of Chicago immigrants and refugees. Established in 2008 in conjunction with the Qatar Foundation, NU-Qatar is the Universityâ€™s first international campus, where students there major in journalism or communications.

A storytelling performance at Northwesternâ€™s Fiedler Hillel on Monday night emphasized the importance of family and Jewish tradition in determining oneâ€™s gender and religious identities. S. Bear Bergman, a storyteller who has written several books for both children and adults, performed â€œMachatunim,â€? a suite of four stories about his nontraditional family and the problems confronting the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer communities. A number of NU departments and student groups collaborated to host the event, including the Crown Family Center for Jewish and Israel Studies and the LGBTQ Resource Center. About 30 people attended the event. â€œIt was a great opportunity for me to learn more about the wider-gendered world,â€? said Eva Hare (McCormick â€™07), who attended the event with the Chicagoland Gender Outlaws. â€œItâ€™s a realization that, â€˜Oh, there are other people who are similar to me, in that theyâ€™re similar because theyâ€™re different.â€? Three of Bergmanâ€™s stories centered on the importance of his family and Jewish tradition in his life. Bergman said he adores his family because of the diversity of â€œgenders, tattoos, races and backgroundsâ€? represented there, but added that this diversity makes describing relationships tricky. He said the title of his suite, â€œMachatunim,â€? means â€œco-in-lawsâ€? and describes people who are family to him regardless of whether or not they are blood relatives. â€œIt helps to have a word for it when people ask if youâ€™re family and their view is a bit more conservative than yours,â€? he said. Bergman and his husband are practicing Jews who are raising their son, Stanley, in the traditional Jewish faith, emphasizing the importance of religion, tradition and family. They host traditional Shabbat dinners most Friday nights and attend religious gatherings. Emphasizing the importance of not only family communities but also his network of co-in-laws, Bergman said he and his husband rely on on both in raising Stanley. â€œThe more non-related adults a child has in his life who are caring for the childâ€™s wellbeing, the better off the child is,â€? he said. The couple also encourages Stanley to explore different genders and gender roles. Event organizers, including Hillel Rabbi Danya Ruttenberg, invited Bergman to speak

it can be.â€? With his last story, Bergman reflected on the difficulties facing transsexuals in his performance of â€œGathering Light Out of Darkness.â€? The story draws on Jewish folklore and the traditional lighting of candles at Hanukkah to emphasize light and uniqueness as a form of resistance to violence. â€œItâ€™s easier for people who are queer and trans to come out in Judaism because thereâ€™s so much more room for argument than in other traditions,â€? he said.
Chicago Magazine recently released its annual ranking of the â€œ100 Most Powerful Chicagoans,â€? and this yearâ€™s list is looking positively purple. According to a University news release, almost 40 percent of those listed are connected to Northwestern, ranging from alumni and trustees to parents of current or former NU students. The list features 23 NU alumni, ranging from Groupon CEO Andrew Mason (Bienen â€˜03) to Henry Crown and Co. chairman Lester Crown (McCormick â€˜46). University President Morton Schapiro is ranked number 54, and alumnus and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel (Communication â€˜85) tops the list. â€œThe quality and scale of representation on this list is an important demonstration of our impact on the Chicago area,â€? Bob McQuinn, vice president for alumni relations and development, said in the release. â€œYou might even think about this impressive collection of Wildcat family members as another way Northwestern is Chicagoâ€™s Big Ten team.â€? Chicago Magazine compiles its annual list by ranking area leaders based on the criteria that those listed must reside primarily in the Chicago area, according to the magazine. The full list is available in the March 2013 issue of Chicago Magazine and on the publicationâ€™s website.

because they said they thought his stories would fit well with the themes and ideas of the Jewish Queers, including queer issues, Judaism and family. â€œThe underlying theme here was about the way we think of family and the kind of ties that bind us, even if they arenâ€™t conventional,â€? Ruttenberg said. â€œ(Bergman) brings a queer eye to Jewish life and a Jewish eye to queer life.â€?
