In the wake of the June 28, 1940, bombing of St. Pete Port by the German military, the islands of Guernsey and Sark, located in the English Channel off the coast of France, became the only enemy-occupied British soil during World War II. Up until now, the story of the Guernsians’ five-year German occupation has mainly been told through the popular fiction novel “The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society.”
In June 2010, three Utah Valley University behavioral science faculty - Sandy McGunigall-Smith, David Knowlton and Sheila Bibb - and students Erik Fullmer and Laurie Ostler Petersen, traveled to the Channel Islands. Through a Grant for Engaged Learning, the team interviewed now elderly survivors who openly shared never-before-told personal accounts of the occupation.
A newly-formed agreement between Utah Valley University and the Higher School of Economics, located in Nizhny Novgorod, Russia, will allow for collaborative activities between the two universities beginning this summer.
UVU’s College of Humanities & Social Sciences signed a memorandum of understanding with the Russian university on Tuesday, Nov. 22, to build a relationship that promotes cultural and educational exchange and understanding.
“This is a first step toward having a robust and dynamic relationship with Russia for our students and faculty,” said Frederick H. White, associate dean of UVU’s College of Humanities & Social Sciences. “Our goal in working with the Higher School of Economics is to expand our activities beyond language instruction in order to offer an international experience from which the entire college can benefit.”

Humanities professor Alex Caldiero to perform at Alchemy Coffee in Salt Lake City, Wednesday, August 31st at 8:00 PM.
CLEAN AND SOBER since 1988, Mark Lundholm is a former criminal, mental patient, homeless wino, resident in a halfway house who started poking fun at the insanity his life had become. Beginning with a successful standup comedy career through 50 states and 10 foreign countries, this comic’s“drank there, used that” style of humor is now so much more than a comedy show and has evolved to a hit on Showtime and an off- broadway production.
Please join us for ‘An Evening of 12 Step Humor’ on Friday, September 9th at 7:30 PM at the Utah Valley University Ragan Theater (click HERE for directions). Tickets can be purchased in person at the UVU ticket office (first floor of the Sorensen Student Center or online at Smithstix.com. You will not want to miss this!
