NEW CALENDARDuke launches anonline calendar thatserves as an archwayto campus, highlightingevents, lectures, artsand more.
Go ahead, tell him.
Tell Duke head football coach David Cutcliffe he cant succeed.Tell him that Duke is destined to be the doormat of the Atlantic
Coast Conference and the NCAA. Remind him that Duke entered the2008 season with a 25-game losing streak in the ACC and that Dukehasnt had a winning season or played in a bowl game since 1994.
Cutcliffe, appointed in December as the 21st head football coach inDuke history, has heard it all, knows hell hear more but hes lovingevery minute of it.
This is fun every single day to take this on, Cutcliffe said. Ive hadpeople who had the audacity and I love it when they say it because it
just fuels the fire Yeah youre having fun now. Wait til the games start.I even had somebody within the university Im not going to say who say, Well just see.
Im going to pick up the phone and call him once we start playingand say, Hey, I just wantedyou to know were still havingfun playing.
For those who thinkturning around Duke football
wont happen, Cutcliffe says:You can accept conditions asthey exist, or take responsibility
in order to bring about change.I want people to
understand that Duke istaking football seriously, saidCutcliffe, who turns 54 thismonth. I have also done this:I have taken the time to makesure that they understand this culture change is not just about the players.
Weve got to change the fans culture.The change began when Duke hired Cutcliffe, sending a signal that it
would no longer allow the program to be a punch line. Cutcliffe joined Dukeas a coach with 22 bowl game appearances, including the 2007 and 2008Outback bowls, and a Southeastern Conference coach of the year honor.
His resume includes serving as assistant head coach and offensivecoordinator at the University of Tennessee, and six years as head coachat the University of Mississippi, where he compiled a 44-29 record andappeared in five bowl games.
Among his collegiate credentials are mentoring Super Bowl MVPquarterbacks Peyton and Eli Manning.
Cutcliffes football roots began at an Alabama high school as a linebacker.His father died in his sophomore year and football coaches became the most
important men in his life. He knew hed be a coach one day.After high school, Cutcliffe went on to the University of Alabama,
where he was a student assistant under head coach Paul Bear Bryant. Hereturned to his high school alma mater and became head coach and won astate championship. After two high school seasons, Cutcliffe joinedTennessee and helped the Volunteers win the 1998 national championship.
Duke is such a
vibrant part of
Durham, and Durham such a
vibrant part of Duke. Thats
why I enjoy talking to thepeople who work here

Go to [email protected], the universitys new calendarat calendar.duke.edu.
Launched in August, the calendar highlights campus
events ranging from arts and athletics to lectures, religiousevents, university ceremonies and more.We worked with students, faculty and staff from
across campus to identify what people really want in anonline calendar, said Deborah Johnson, assistant viceprovost, who led the project in partnership with theOffice of Information Technology and BlackwellInteractive. We hope the calendar will encourage morepeople to take advantage of the many concerts, films,lectures, games and other events that make Duke such anexciting place to work.
The new calendar is more functional and appealingthan its predecessor, Johnson said. It enables Duke officesto enter events just once and have them also appear ondepartment, school or unit calendars and even private
group calendars. The new system also is compatible withstandard personal calendar tools.Calendar viewers can sort quickly through all
upcoming events and view them within dates or specificcategories. Ongoing events, such as art exhibits, arefeatured in a separate area on the home page, reducingclutter in the daily event listings.

Refectory Cafe expands to Duke Law SchoolA popular dining spot at Duke is spreading its wings.
Bon Vivant Catering, which has operated the Refectory Cafe in
the Divinity School since 2005, is opening a second eatery in the Duke
Law School at the corner of Towerview and Science drives.
The Refectory at Duke Law will open Sept. 8 in the atrium facing
Science Drive. It will serve meals
from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Monday
The decision to add a new
eatery in the Law School was
prompted by a growing need for
convenient, healthy dining options in
the graduate schools, said Jim
Wulforst, director of Duke Dining
Services. A committee from the Law School selected Bon Vivant
Catering from five vendors who submitted bids. I anticipate the
Refectory will continue to woo customers in the Law School in the
same way it does at the Divinity School.
In addition to grilled grass-fed beef burgers and seasoned fresh-
cut fries, the new Refectory will emphasize the same fresh, local
produce and gourmet-quality dishes that draw hundreds of staff and
faculty each day to the Divinity School location on West Campus.
Use your DukeCard FLEX account at either Refectory location
and receive a 10 percent discount. For menus, visitwww.bonvivantcatering.com .
