Work Experience

Brand Coordinator - Product Team

october 2012 - present
Falling under the Operations division, it is the very definition of the word 'coordinator'. The Data Team's core responsibility is to get goods from our brand suppliers' warehouses to being sold live on the web. The tasks to achieve this end goal are numerous, and we regularly are in communication with brand suppliers, delivery companies, our warehouse, IT and development teams, customer service, the buying and merchandising departments, the marketing department, the finance department & the e-commerce team. We are the go-getters everyone runs to when a problem arrises with goods on the web - the unsung heros of e-commerce.

Education: formal, higher, lower, etc.

Rather than present a chronological or geographical dictation of my path less traveled (all credit to Robert Frost), I have organised my formal education in a more organic fashion. Organised by area of study or subject and then the level or appropriate institution. I hope you find this type of presentation more efficient, but also more entertaining to reveiw.

While I place great pride and credibility on the traditional avenues of learning undertaken inside the 'classroom', I am also a student of life. And I have learned as much about acedemia, life and myself outside the classroom as the geometry I learned in the classroom: SOH - CAH - TOA.

svenska
  • malmö högskola
Jag pluggade hos Malmö Högskola där jag fick min gymnasial nivå svenska. Min SFI (svenska för invandrare) räckte inte att ge mig en riktig kunskap i svenska. Jag är helt motiverad att integrera mig och jobbar fortfarande att förbättre min svenska ordkunskap samt dialekt. Språket är nyckeln till början av integration i Sverige. Men språket öppnar bara dörren till integration; därefter måste integration finns i ens hjärta.

The Hot List!

Since the very beginning in 1982, Euroflorist’s mission has been to help people send greetings through flowers. Together with our florists, we offer the easy and safe way to make your friends, family, colleagues and loved ones feel happy, noticed and remembered. We also work to help the florists in our network, by making their everyday life easier and contributing to the success of their own companies.Today we have Europe’s biggest network of professional florists. Together, we help you send flowers wherever you want, whenever you want. Whether it is to the other side of the city, the country or anywhere in the world. Since the start, our head office has been situated in Malmö, Sweden. Today, we have operations in 12 countries, with offices in Sweden, Holland, England, Germany and France. Euroflorist’s history spans three decades. 1982 – A new and more efficient flower relay is createdThe engineer Peter Jungbeck starts Svensk Blomsterförmedling in 1982 together with his friend and business partner Lars Hedberg. With his technical background, Peter has built a new system that makes it a lot easier for florists to relay flowers between them. Soon Svensk Blomsterförmedling has a strong network of florists that delivers flowers across the countries. As true entrepreneurs, Peter and Lasse throw themselves into the business with everything they’ve got. They sell their cars and apartments and invest everything in their new venture. From an attic on Norra Vallgatan in Malmö, they are in constant contact with the florists to make sure all flower deliveries and payments go through.The basic principles that the company was founded on – a close collaboration with the florists based on respect, free will and creativity – have continued to guide the company throughout the years. 1984 – International network & flower deliveries abroadIn 1984, Svensk Blomsterförmedling becomes the representative for Teleflor International in Sweden. As a result, the Swedish florists can now deliver flowers all over the world. During the same period, the company moves to bigger premises on Torggatan in Malmö. 1988 – Expansion to Norway & launch of flower cardsAs the company now delivers flowers internationally, they soon discover that there is no relay network in Norway and decide to start up business there. The same year, they launch their popular flower cards, gift cards that can be used as payment in all member stores. Since the start, millions of flower cards have been sold and spread happiness around Europe. 1990 – The company changes name to EurofloristSvensk Blomsterförmedling merges with Blommografen and they need a new name for the united company. The name should describe the business (the florists who deliver all the beautiful flowers) but also the expansion plans that exist. In the end, the decide on Euroflorist. 1995 - Euroflorist first with flower relay on the InternetWhen the University in Lund arranges a seminar on the new phenomenon ”internet”, Peter quickly sees the opportunities. Euroflorist launches their first web shop in August 1995 as one of the first 100 companies in the world! From the start it is possible to pay with credit cards on the site, although the transactions are handled via a Scottish bank, since no Swedish bank is ready to deal with web shops yet. During the first period, the web shop receives around 1 order a day, a number that quickly multiplies and that continues to increase every year. We are very proud to continue to be in the forefront of the development and offer our customers the best services to order flowers quickly, easily and safely on the Internet. Quick European expansionDuring the 1990’s and 2000’s the company quickly expands throughout Europe. Euroflorist establishes businesses in Danmark (1993), Poland (1996), Germany (2001), Austria (2002), Holland (2003), France (2004), and finally Belgien and Luxemburg (2006). The latest expansion is in England and Ireland though the acquisition of eFlorist 2010, a company that has delivered flowers in Great Britain since 1947. 2005 – the Euroflorists e-commerce platform wins awardIn 2005, Euroflorist is awarded the Microsoft .NET Award for the most modern e-commerce platform in Europe. On the website customers can, besides ordering flower deliveries, also create their own address book and add reminders to make sure they never forget to send flowers on important occasions. 2007 – Euroflorist celebrates 25 years with 1500 floristsEuroflorist celebrates 25 successful years in Barcelona together with 1500 florists from the network. They are treated to an extravagant flower show and the world famous flower artists Gregor Lersch and Klaus Wagener gave inspiration with their flower creations. 2010 – Euroflorist enter the gifting business with Gift2dayIn 2010, Euroflorist acquires the brand Gift2day to expand in to the gifting business which often goes hand in hand with flower deliveries. 2012 – Euroflorist celebrates 30 years with a new logotype…In connection with Euroflorist’s 30-year jubilee, we take a step into the future with a new, more modern logotype. Our new symbol represents what we do – it is both a flower and a bird, the messenger who delivers our flowers to the recipient. … and the entrepreneurial spirit is still alive!Since the start 30 years ago, Euroflorist has delivered more than 41 million bouquets around the world, making millions of people happy.Although today we are a successful international company, the entrepreneurial spirit from the attic office on Norra Vallgatan is still alive. We work every day to exceed the expectations of our customers and florists and to spread happiness and joy through flowers – anywhere, anytime. Sedan starten 1982 har Euroflorist förmedlat hälsningar med hjälp av blommor. Tillsammans med våra florister gör vi det enkelt och säkert att glädja och uppmärksamma vänner, familj, partners och kollegor. Vi arbetar också för att hjälpa floristerna i vårt nätverk, genom att förenkla deras vardag och bidra till att de når framgång med sina företag.Idag har vi Europas största nätverk av professionella florister. Tillsammans hjälper vi dig att skicka blommor vart du vill, när du vill. Vare sig det är till andra sidan staden, landet eller någon annanstans i världen. Vårt huvudkontor har sedan starten legat i Malmö. Idag har vi verksamhet i 12 länder med kontor i Sverige, Holland, England, Tyskland och Frankrike. Euroflorists historia spänner över tre decennier. Här följer några milstolpar. Historien om Euroflorist 1982 – En ny och mer effektiv blomsterförmedling skapas Ingenjören Peter Jungbeck startar 1982 Svensk Blomsterförmedling tillsammans med sin vän och kompanjon Lars Hedberg. Med sin tekniska bakgrund har Peter byggt ett nytt system som gör det mycket enklare för florister att förmedla blommor sinsemellan. Snart har Svensk Blomsterförmedling ett starkt nätverk av florister som levererar blombud över hela landet.Som sanna entreprenörer går Peter och Lasse in i verksamheten med hull och hår. De säljer sina bilar och lägenheter och satsar allt på sitt nya företag. Från ett vindskontor på Norra Vallgatan i Malmö håller de ständig kontakt med floristerna för att säkerställa att alla blombud och betalningar går igenom som de ska.De grundprinciper som man bestämmer sig för vid starten – ett nära samarbete med floristerna baserat på respekt, frivillighet och kreativitet – har fortsatt att leda verksamheten genom alla år. 1984 – Internationellt nätverk & blombud till utlandet År 1984 blir Svensk Blomsterförmedling representant för Teleflor International i Sverige. I och med detta kan de svenska floristerna ta emot beställningar till hela världen. Under samma period byter man till större lokaler och verksamheten flyttar till Torggatan i Malmö. 1988 – Etablering i Norge & lansering av blomsterkortSom internationell leverantör av blombud upptäcker företaget snart att det inte finns något floristnätverk i Norge och man bestämmer sig för att starta verksamhet där. Samma år lanserar man sina populära blomsterkort, presentkort som kan användas som betalning i alla medlemsbutiker. Sedan starten har miljontals blomsterkort sålts och skänkt glädje runtom i hela Europa. 1990 – Företaget byter namn till Euroflorist Svensk Blomsterförmedling går ihop med Blommografen och man behöver ett nytt namn på det gemensamma företaget. Namnet ska spegla verksamheten (floristerna som levererar alla vackra blombud) men också de expansionstankar som finns. Till slut fastnar man för Euroflorist. 1995 - Euroflorist först med blombud på internet När universitetet i Lund håller ett seminarium om det nya fenomenet ”internet” ser Peter snabbt möjligheterna. Euroflorist lanserar sin första webbutik i augusti 1995 som ett av de första 100 företagen i världen! Redan från början går det att betala med kreditkort på sajten, men transaktionerna görs via en skotsk bank då ingen svensk bank ännu är villig att ställa upp med kreditkortstjänster för webbutiker.Den första tiden kommer det in ca 1 order om dagen från webbutiken, en siffra som snabbt mångdubblas och som fortsätter att stiga för varje år. Vi är stolta över att fortfarande ligga i framkant av utvecklingen och kunna erbjuda våra kunder de bästa tjänsterna för att beställa blommor snabbt, enkelt och säkert på nätet. Snabb europeisk expansionUnder 1990 och 2000-talen går expansionen ut i Europa snabbt. Euroflorist etablerar verksamhet i Danmark (1993), Polen (1996), Tyskland (2001), Österrike (2002), Holland (2003), Frankrike (2004), och slutligen Belgien och Luxemburg (2006). Den senaste expansionen görs i England och Irland genom förvärvet av eFlorist 2010, en verksamhet som levererat blombud i Storbritannien sedan 1947.Idag är vi stolta över att ha det största floristnätverket för blomsterförmedling utanför Nordamerika med runt 10,000 medlemmar. Vi är också medlemmar i Teleflor International som omfattar över 54,000 floristmedlemmar. Det gör att vi kan garantera leverans samma dag av fräscha blommor som är bundna av en yrkeskunnig florist i nästan varje hörn av världen. 2005 – Euroflorists e-handelsplattform vinner pris År 2005 tilldelas Euroflorist Microsoft .NET Award för Europas modernaste e-handelsplattform. På hemsidan kan man, förutom att beställa blombud, även skapa sin egen adressbok och lägga in påminnelser för att se till att man aldrig glömmer skicka blommor vid viktiga händelser. 2007 – Euroflorist firar 25 år med 1500 florister Euroflorist firar 25 framgångsrika år tillsammans med 1500 florister från sitt nätverk. Det bjuds på en sprakande blomstershow i Barcelona och de världskända blomsterkonstnärerna Gregor Lersch och Klaus Wagener inspirerar med sina blomsterkreationer. 2010 – Euroflorist går in i presentbranschen med Gift2day År 2010 köper Euroflorist varumärket Gift2day för att satsa på presentmarknaden, ett område som ligger nära blomsterförmedling. 2012 – Euroflorist 30 år med ny logotyp… I samband med att Euroflorist firar 30-årsjubileum tar vi ett steg in i framtiden med en ny modern logotyp. Vår nya symbol representerar det vi gör – den är både en blomma och en fågel, budbäraren som levererar våra blommor till mottagaren. … och entreprenörsandan finns kvar! Sedan starten för 30 år sedan har Euroflorist skickat mer än 41 miljoner blombud över hela världen och hjälpt till att göra minst lika många människor glada.Trots att vi idag är ett framgångsrikt internationellt företag lever entreprenörsandan från det lilla vindskontoret på Norra Vallgatan kvar. Vi arbetar varje dag för att överträffa förväntningarna hos våra kunder och florister och för att sprida glädje och värme med hjälp av blommor – var som helst, när som helst. EuroFlorist[1][2][3] är en blomsterförmedlare som levererar miljontals blomsterbud[4], receptionsblommor, presenter och begravningsbinderier[5] över större delen av världen. Euroflorist grundades i Malmö 1982 som Svensk blomsterförmedling av Peter Jungbeck[6], men bytte 1990 namn på bolaget för att möjliggöra en internationell expansion. Därefter har man etablerat sig i Danmark (1993), Polen (1996), Tyskland (2001), Österrike (2002), Holland (2003), Frankrike (2004), och slutligen Belgien och Luxemburg (2006). Den senaste expansionen skedde i England och Irland genom förvärvet av eFlorist 2010, en verksamhet som levererat blombud i Storbritannien sedan 1947.Bolaget var 1995 först i Sverige med blomsterbud på Internet och är idag Europas största nätverk av professionella florister med verksamhet i tolv länder.

Born of the traditional model of excellence in teaching and research, James Cook University has become a modern and dynamic university of truly global standing. Our graduates hold top-level positions around Australia and the world, and our research has earned us a worldclass reputation.JCU is Queensland’s second oldest university. We offered our first courses in Townsville in 1961 as an annex of the University of Queensland. Since then we have become a dynamic, multi-campus university with a total of 17,500 students. Our main campuses are located in Townsville and Cairns, and we have international campuses in Singapore and Brisbane.After a decade under the stewardship of the University of Queensland, JCU became a university in its own right on 20 April 1970. The proclamation was signed by Queen Elizabeth II at a special ceremony in Townsville, which took place 200 years, to the day, after the University’s namesake, explorer Captain James Cook, first sighted Australia. “By the time Abraham Lincoln was inaugurated as president of the United States, nearly two dozen private colleges and universities operated in Illinois. Most were church-related and intended for English-speaking men only. However, many northeastern Illinois residents were members of German-speaking immigrant families. No institutions of higher education addressed the needs of these men and women specifically.“That changed in 1861.” --From North Central College: 150 Years. A Promising Start.Plainfield College, as North Central first was known, opened its doors to 40 men and women soon after the start of the Civil War in 1861. Led by President Augustine A. Smith, a noted abolitionist and coeducation advocate, the College was founded by the Evangelical Association (now the United Methodist Church). The institution changed its name to North-Western College in 1864, then to North Central College in 1926. It moved from Plainfield to Naperville in 1870, bolstered by the town’s generous gift of $25,000 and eight acres of land.Since then, both College and town have flourished. Naperville has grown from a rural community into a bustling city of 144,000 while retaining its friendly, small-town atmosphere; North Central has grown into a beautiful 61.5-acre campus nestled in the town’s Historic District.Today U.S. News & World Report counts this independent, comprehensive college of the liberal arts and sciences among “America’s Best Colleges,” naming it one of the top six schools in the Midwest for its “strong commitment to undergraduate teaching.” Nearly 3,000 students choose from more than 55 undergraduate majors and seven graduate program areas. The College originally discouraged organized athletics as a distraction from weightier matters but now hosts 22 intercollegiate sports in NCAA Division III and the College Conference of Illinois & Wisconsin (CCIW). North Central holds 30 team national championships and 38 consecutive CCIW men's cross country championships.The campus buildings reflect both a proud history and an ambitious future. A renovated Old Main, displaying a cornerstone that was laid in 1870, stands tall at the heart of campus. Barbara Pfeiffer Memorial Hall, dedicated in 1926, features a 1,057-seat auditorium that continues to host a stellar lineup of performers and guests. The A.A. Smith House, built in 1885 by the family of the College’s first president, was renovated and donated to the College by Bart and Maricela ’99 Madden in 2008. Mid-century buildings include Oesterle Library, the Harold and Eva White Activities Center and the Kroehler Science Center. Recent construction includes the nationally acclaimed Wentz Concert Hall and Fine Arts Center and the innovative, LEED-certified Residence Hall/Recreation Center.Over the past 150-plus years, only 10 presidents have led the College. This has provided the institution with an exceptionally strong continuity of vision. Today the College honors its past while preparing for an exceptional future.“Throughout its first 150 years, North Central College weathered international crises as well as challenges closer to home. Through them all, it remained what A.A. Smith called ‘a great moral lighthouse, sending out a clear and steady light upon all subjects that pertain to the well-being of man in this world and the world to come.’“...Smith’s vision for the College: ‘No school can long survive which is not responsive to the changing needs of students; neither can an educational institution succeed over the long term if it does not stand for and behind principles which are timeless and immutable.’“May North Central long stand on these enduring principles.” --From North Central College: 150 Years. A Promising Start. Founding[edit]Arizona State University was founded in 1885 as the Territorial Normal School at Tempe by an act of the Thirteenth Legislative Assembly of the Territory of Arizona.[2][3] But without the skillful political maneuvers of the young legislator John S. Armstrong and the support of town founder Charles T. Hayden the institution might not have been located at Tempe.The advocacy of territorial Governor Anson P. K. Safford helped Arizonans recognize the need for an institution to train teachers to work in the public schools, but it was not until the Thirteenth Legislative Assembly was seated in 1885 that the political will to address secondary and higher education was manifest. The Assembly would consider in this session big-ticket appropriations for a mental health facility, a university and a normal school. Citizens of Tucson also hoped the Thirteenth would restore the territorial capitol to their city since it was moved back to Prescott in 1878. As a result a number of political prizes were available for barter during this legislative session, and because of the substantial $100,000 appropriation attached to the mental health facility, it was this institution that many sought as their first priority.At twenty-eight years old John Armstrong was the second youngest representative in the Thirteenth Legislative Assembly, a Democrat in his first term who was elected on a platform of securing both the mental health facility and the university for predominantly Republican Maricopa County. Upon his election he immediately applied for appointment to the House Education Committee. In a surprise move he was appointed chair of that committee by Speaker R. G. Rollins of Tucson, but his appointment was balanced by the assignment of the formidable C. C. Stephens of Tucson as chair of the Council (Senate) Committee on Education. Any bill to establish a normal school or a university would have to be approved by both the House and Council and signed by the Governor.There are conflicting accounts of when John Armstrong decided to pursue the normal school for Tempe. The appointment of Stephens as chair of the Council education committee and of E. W. Risley of Tucson to the related House committee suggested that the Tucson interests could not secure the votes to return the capitol to their city. They were positioning themselves to bargain for the university. Armstrong apparently recognized the opportunity and built a coalition to bring the normal school to Tempe in exchange for supporting a public school reform bill and for locating the mental health facility in Phoenix.On February 26, 1885 Armstrong introduced House Bill no. 164, “An Act to Establish a Normal School in the Territory of Arizona.” The bill would establish a territorial normal school at Tempe to train public school teachers and also teach "husbandry" (agriculture) and the mechanical arts. $5,000 was proposed for founding the institution and $3,500 was set aside for two years of operating expenses, after which the institution would be supported by tax revenue. The founding appropriations would be provided if the citizens of Tempe donated land for the school within 60 days of the bill’s passage.HB 164 passed the House Education Committee on March 3, and on March 5 Mr. Stephens introduced Council Bill no. 76, "An Act to Organize the University of the Territory of Arizona and to locate it at Tucson." This bill was read and referred to the Council Committee on Education. Back in the House on March 6, Armstrong called for suspension of the rules and a vote on HB 164. The members agreed and passed the bill later that day. Stephens spent the weekend assessing the prospects for his university bill and realized he needed Armstrong’s support for House approval. On Tuesday, March 10, Stephens moved that HB 164 and CB 76 be considered by committee of the whole, bypassing his own Council Education Committee and ensuring that the bills would be considered together.On the morning of March 11, Council passed HB 164, sending the bill to the governor for signature and ensuring the establishment of the normal school at Tempe. During the afternoon session the House passed CB 76, establishing the university at Tucson. Governor F.A. Tritle signed both bills on March 12, 1885.All that remained was securing 20 acres (81,000 m2) for the school from the citizens of Tempe. One account states that Charles Trumbull Hayden arranged for a town meeting in January in which the citizens of Tempe agreed that a normal school was desirable, and that George and Martha Wilson’s cow pasture was the best location. The Wilsons originally agreed to donate 5 acres (20,000 m2) in exchange for $500 raised by the citizens of Tempe at that meeting. Now they would have to donate their entire pasture, which was needed to support their business, the Pioneer Meat Market, to meet the 20-acre (81,000 m2) requirement. On May 5 the Wilsons donated the entire 20 acres (81,000 m2) in exchange for $500, creating the core of the original campus and ensuring the establishment of Arizona State University.[4]Early years[edit]Principal Hiram Bradford Farmer opened the Territorial Normal School’s four classroom building to 33 students on February 8, 1886, the first institution of higher education to open in Arizona. The Normal School was charged to provide "instruction of persons, both male and female, in the art of teaching, and in all the various branches that pertain to a good common school education; also, to give instruction in the mechanical arts and in husbandry and agricultural chemistry, in the fundamental law of the United States, and in what regards the rights and duties of citizens."[5]Admission requirements were a minimum age of 16 years old and successful completion of an entrance examination. Advanced placement by examination was accepted with 22 weeks of attendance. Principal Farmer taught all subjects. “Sub-normal” classes were offered to students lacking a high school diploma until 1923. Upon completion of the requirements a diploma and teaching certificate were awarded.In 1899, the requirement for a diploma increased to a three-year course with a test of proficiency in academic and professional (teacher instruction) studies. By 1900 there were six faculty members and 131 students.As a result of the opening of the Normal School at Flagstaff, in 1901 the legislature instituted the official and legal name Tempe Normal School that was presented in all official publications starting in 1903. The Department of Manual Arts (1906) and classes in Agriculture (1912) were introduced into the curriculum in accordance with requirements of the founding legislation. On March 20, 1911 President Theodore Roosevelt visited Tempe Normal School and spoke to the community from the steps of Old Main, two days after he dedicated Roosevelt Dam. In his thirteen-minute speech he presented his vision for education of children, educational training and the development of the Valley.[6]In the 1920s the Alumni Association lead political efforts to rename the Normal School and advance to a more robust teachers college curriculum. In 1923 admission requirements were raised to a high school diploma. The Tempe State Teachers College established in 1925 boasted 41 faculty members and 672 students, and by 1929 the Arizona State Teacher’s College offered a four year-college curriculum leading to the Bachelor of Education. A two-year curriculum was also available to secure a certificate of eligibility to teach in Arizona elementary schools.[7]Students completing the four-year course were eligible for graduate work in education at a university, and they would receive secondary certificates permitting them to teach in Arizona high schools. The requirement for a diploma and a grade school teaching certificates increased to a three-year curriculum.Gammage years[edit]In the early 1930s, Arizona State needed national accreditation to be recognized as an educational institution of quality, but eligibility requirements of accrediting organizations specified that a large percentage of faculty must hold advanced degrees, particularly doctorates. As a result, under the leadership of President Ralph Swetman many faculty contracts were terminated and new faculty hired. In 1933 Grady Gammage became President of the Arizona State Teacher’s College, and later that year the North Central Association (NCA) granted Arizona State Teacher’s College at Tempe its first permanent and unconditional accreditation. In 1937 Arizona State offered its first graduate degree, the Masters in Education. Although courses were offered in other academic and professional disciplines, the school remained a teachers college until 1945.[8]Arizona State College at Tempe dropped the teacher’s college appellation in 1945, and it was now governed by the newly established Arizona Board of Regents. The college offered a more diverse curriculum, but the only advanced degree available there was still the Master of Arts in Education. Military personnel who trained for their World War II service in the valley remembered the abundant sunshine and relaxed civilian lifestyle they witnessed before deployment. They returned to settle in the Valley of the Sun and advance their education with GI Bill dollars. As a result, ASC enrollment tripled between 1940 and 1949 to 4,094 students, and Valley manufacturing and industry exploded in this period as well.In 1953 the Arizona Board of Regents (dominated by University of Arizona alumni), authorized the establishment of a College of Arts and Sciences and called for the United States Department of Education to evaluate the ASC program. Dr. Ernest V. Hollis’ 1954 report declared that ASC was "rapidly becoming a university" and proposed the establishment of four colleges: Liberal Arts, Education, Applied Arts and Sciences, and Business and Public Administration. The Hollis Report precipitated howls of displeasure from southern Arizona that echoed through the Board of Regents and the Arizona Legislature, but in the November 1954 Regents meeting Governor Howard Pyle cast the deciding vote to accept the recommendations, which were implemented the following year.Meanwhile, a war of words erupted in legislative chambers, major city newspapers and alumni magazines over Hollis’ declaration that a second Arizona university was emerging in the desert. Arizona State College student leaders collected petition signatures, legislation was crafted and buried in committees, and Eugene Pulliam’s Arizona Republic justified references to Arizona State University as a matter of accuracy in journalism. But the powerful State Senator Harold Giss of Yuma unwittingly poured gas on the fire when in March 1958 he introduced legislation to name the institution Tempe University. Hundreds of angry students laid siege at the state capitol in Phoenix until Giss appeared at the balcony and promised to withdraw the bill. An embarrassed President Grady Gammage admonished the student behavior, and quietly appointed Alumni Association Executive Director James Creasman to coordinate the statewide initiative drive that would give Arizonans their second public university.Five hundred and ninety-nine students formed a committee to collect petition signatures in the spring of 1958, assisted by the Alumni Association and the "Citizens for Arizona State University" led by Walter Craig and John B. Mills. They needed 28,859 valid signatures, but by July 1 they had collected 63,956 signatures and they delivered them to the capitol by armored car. Meanwhile the "Citizens for College and University Education" returned fire with editorials, radio ads and pamphlets declaring that the "name change" movement was wasteful duplication and poor educational policy. Mrs. Kathryn Gammage, first year football coach Frank Kush and college administrators and faculty toured the state to promote Arizona State University, while C.W. Laing and Tom Lillico barnstormed the state in their Yes 200 Piper aircraft. Opening day at the new Sun Devil Stadium featured the letters AS painted in the end zone, with room for the U to be added, while the opposition burned "No 200" into the turf at midfield.Election day dawned on November 4, 1958 and an army of 1,500 student volunteers was deployed to assist with voter information and transportation to the polls. A communications center was established in the Memorial Union, and the students gathered outside as the polls closed at 7:00. The teleprinter chattered election results in favor of ASU two to one, and at 10:00 the Citizens for College and University Education conceded the election. Celebrations began, but thirty minutes later a wire service reported returns two to one against ASU and the tension was renewed. At 11:00 the teleprinter declared the previous reports inaccurate and Proposition 200 approved by a two to one margin. The celebration was renewed with the Sun Devil Marching Band, cheerleaders and pom-pom girls leading 5,000 jubilant students to Sun Devil Stadium. All that remained was the gubernatorial proclamation enacting the initiative results, and so on December 5, 1958, the governor signed the executive order that created Arizona State University.[9]ASU established itself as a university in name, and it had the public support and regential authorization to offer advanced degrees, but the talented faculty, graduate students and laboratory facilities needed to establish university research programs in the sciences were generally not available at ASU in 1958. University administrators and faculty realized that fulfilling the promise of a university required much more than a name change, and as early as 1955 they worked overtime to create a research university from scratch.Building a research university[edit]Discovery Hall, built in 1948, served as the first home for Arizona State College's budding science programs.National Science Foundation grant applications from Arizona State College in the 1950s and early 1960s often focused on teacher training programs or “Summer Institutes” in various science disciplines. However there were several faculty who served as the university pioneers in attracting federal grants for scientific research, mainly in the fields of biology, water management, meteoritics and solid state science.In the mid-1940s Dr. Herbert Stahnke received research support from the Arizona State Legislature through two appropriations bills for research projects relating to scorpions, snakes and other venomous animals. This work led to establishment of the Poisonous Animals Research Laboratory in 1945, which produced anti-venom for venomous species native to the southwest region. Stahnke’s zeal was honored by the college in this period since he was one of a handful of faculty writing research grants at that time, and he eventually received support from the National Science Foundation and the National Institutes of Health. His provocative research led to a number of television appearances and a lecture tour of Europe in 1961. In the early 1970s Stahnke’s laboratory was threatened with elimination when university administrators questioned the quality of his anti-venom and the role of public universities in providing this service, but the lab remained in operation until 1988.H. H. Nininger was a lay scientist and collector of meteorites who became an internationally recognized expert on the subject. In the late-1950s he expressed interest in an association with ASU to support his research. While an early NSF proposal for Nininger’s meteoritics field research failed, he established a relationship with George Boyd (the university’s first Director of Research) that ultimately resulted in a grant of $240,000 from the National Science Foundation for the purchase of the Nininger Meteorite Collection, the largest meteorite collection hosted by a university and considered among the top five in the world. Given Nininger’s world-class stature as an expert in meteoritics, and a general re-examination of science education in America in response to the Soviet launch of the Sputnik satellite, ASU’s acquisition of this collection in 1960 caught the attention of NSF and NASA.Soon afterward Dr. Carleton Moore was appointed to serve as the first director of ASU’s Center for Meteorite Studies, which exists to this day. Dr. Moore acquired thirty-five research grants in materials science and geology from NASA, NSF and USGS from 1963-1987. Moore was selected to evaluate moon dust and moon rocks acquired from NASA’s Apollo missions in the 1970s, and his research was particularly well-publicized. This work resulted in a large number of public speaking opportunities in Arizona, and set the stage for externally funded research in planetary geology and astrophysics by subsequent ASU faculty.University scientific research also required laboratories, and founding dean Lee P. Thompson of the College of Engineering established collaborations with several industrial firms like General Electric, Motorola and AiResearch that enabled the purchase of expensive and specialized equipment. Early labs were built to support research in fluid mechanics, heat transfer, and turbine engine development. The results of this research facilitated development of marketable technologies by Arizona businesses.In 1960 the arrival of ASU President G. Homer Durham from the University of Utah marked the beginning of attempts to actively recruit research science faculty. Appointments of well-credentialed faculty such as Carleton Moore, Charles M. Woolf, Troy Péwé and LeRoy Eyring confirmed ASU’s ability to attract top notch researchers. These faculty members recognized the potential of ASU and were willing to build the infrastructure that eventually attracted many talented research faculty and resulted in the award of hundreds of science PhD's.[10]Meanwhile President Durham also led efforts to expand ASU’s curriculum by establishing several new colleges (the College of Fine Arts, the College of Law, the College of Nursing, and the School of Social Work) and through reorganizing what became the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences.Expanding capacity[edit]Lattie F. Coor Hall, built in 2004, is one of the university's largest classroom and office buildings.The next three presidents—Harry K. Newburn (1969–71), John W. Schwada, (1971–81), J. Russell Nelson (1981–89) and Interim President Richard Peck (1989) led the university to greater academic stature in the face of increasing demand for educational services. But early in this period ASU experienced the growth pains of a maturing university when the Arizona Board of Regents dismissed the irascible Morris Starsky, a tenured professor of philosophy, for cancelling class to participate in an anti-racism protest in Tucson and other improprieties. Even though two ASU faculty committees and President Newburn acquitted Starsky, the university was later censured by the American Association of University Professors for violating Starsky’s academic freedom.[11]In 1984 ASU responded to explosive growth in the Phoenix metropolitan area by establishing the ASU West Campus. ASU West was originally intended to serve as an upper division university that drew its student body from the Maricopa County community college system, one of the largest in the country. As demand increased the institution expanded into a four-year program and it sought separate accreditation.Under the leadership of Dr. Lattie F. Coor, from 1990 to 2002, ASU grew to serve the Valley of the Sun through multiple campuses and extended education sites. He established the ASU East campus (now known as the Polytechnic campus) at the former Williams Air Force Base, and he founded the ASU Downtown Center as the host for the College of Extended Education. His commitment to “four pillars” of diversity, quality in undergraduate education, research, and economic development underscored the university’s significant gains in each of these areas over his 12-year tenure. In 1994 ASU science researchers were honored by the Carnegie Center for Advancement of Teaching when they awarded Research 1 status to the university. The recognition was considered a remarkable feat for a university that is ineligible for the substantial research dollars associated with medical schools and land grant agriculture programs.[12] Another part of Dr. Coor’s legacy was the most successful capital campaign in university history to date, raising more than $300 million primarily through private donations from the local community. Among the campaign’s achievements were the naming and endowing of the Barrett Honors College, the Katherine K. Herberger College of Fine Arts, and the Morrison School of Management and Agribusiness at ASU East.[13] Malmö högskolaMalmö högskolaMalmö Högskola.jpgEngelskt namn Malmö University College[1]Motto Där mångfald gör skillnadGrundad 1 juli 1998Ägandeform statligRektor Stefan BengtssonPlats Malmö, SverigeAntal studerande 13 000 hås (2012) [2]Antal doktorander 100Antal lärare 800Medlemskap SUHFWebbplats www.mah.seKoordinater: 55°36′28″N 12°59′47″ÖMalmö högskola är en svensk statlig högskola belägen i Malmö och bildad 1 juli 1998.
