CHICAGO IN THE NEWS

* GSB CONSORTIUM PROVIDES EXECUTIVE "BOOT CAMP"
An intensive, three-day program for corporate directors and senior executives held at the University's Gleacher Center in mid-August, the Directors' Consortium was a joint project of the Graduate School of Business, the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, and Stanford Law School. The event attracted 80-some executives--and the New York Times:

* IN THE WORLD OF ADMISSIONS ESSAYS, CHICAGO SETS THE STANDARD
A September 2 Chicago Tribune editorial lauds the College Board's decision to add a writing test to its basic SAT I college entrance exam.

RESEARCH AT CHICAGO

* $16.6 MILLION NSF GRANT TO BUILD SOUTH POLE TELESCOPE
A multi-institutional team led by Chicago scientists will receive $16.6 million from the National Science Foundation to build a telescope at the South Pole. Measuring eight meters in diameter and operating at submillimeter wavelengths, the telescope will study dark energy--the phenomenon responsible for the accelerating expansion of the universe.

* NORC SURVEY TRACKS AFTERMATH OF TERRORIST ATTACKS
The National Opinion Research Center reports that women, minorities, low-income groups, and people in poor health show more long-term effects from the tragedy than the population in general. The telephone survey of 805 U.S. residents and 296 residents of New York City tracked 15 negative emotional and physical symptoms, as well as levels of national pride, faith in others, and confidence in the military: http://www-news.uchicago.edu/releases/02/020811.norc.shtml
