ICE and the Office of Sustainability invite you to apply for a Sustainability + Arts grant in conjunction with the 2014-2015 UGA Campus Sustainability Grants program.

Deadline: November 11

The UGA Campus Sustainability Grants Program provides competitive funding for student-proposed projects and initiatives designed to advance sustainability through education, research, service, and campus operations. Successful projects will address priorities outlined in UGA’s 2020 Strategic Plan to actively conserve resources, educate the campus community, influence positive action for people and the environment, and provide useful research data to inform future campus sustainability efforts. Interdisciplinary projects designed to inspire, beautify and uplift – as well as to inform and conserve – are encouraged. Proposals are accepted from current UGA students and will be selected based on merit, positive impact, implementation feasibility, and available funding.

The Office of Sustainability coordinates, communicates, and advances sustainability initiatives at UGA in the areas of teaching, research, service and outreach, student engagement, and campus operations. For more information visit:

ICE-Vision: Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown (Almodóvar, 1988)

ICE-Vision continues with Film Studies and English major Dafna Kaufman’s selections of great films that may be forgotten by the general public, but can be remembered and cherished through viewings today.

Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown is a 1988 Spanish black comedy-drama film written and directed by Pedro Almodóvar. The film brought Almodóvar to widespread international attention: it was nominated for the 1988 Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, and won five Goya Awards including Best Film. Vincent Canby of The New York Times wrote, “In ”Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, ”Mr. Almodovar sets out to charm rather than shock. That he succeeds should not come as a surprise. The common denominator of all Almodovar films, even the one that winds up in an ecstatic murder-suicide pact, is their great good humor.”
