If you will be anywhere in Pennsylvania or the immediate surrounding states during the solar eclipse today, do not look directly at the sun. The only place that it will be safe to view the solar eclipse without safety glasses is during the brief total phase of a solar eclipse (“totality”), when the moon entirely blocks the sun’s bright face, which will happen only within the narrow path of totality. Since nowhere in Pennsylvania will the eclipse be total, safety glasses should be worn during the entire event.

NASA has instructions for how to view the 2017 Solar Eclipse Safely at https://eclipse2017.nasa.gov/safety.

General guidelines:
The only safe way to look directly at the uneclipsed or partially eclipsed sun is through special-purpose solar filters, such as “eclipse glasses” or hand-held solar viewers. Homemade filters or ordinary sunglasses, even very dark ones, are not safe for looking at the sun.

Do not look at the uneclipsed or partially eclipsed sun through an unfiltered camera, telescope, binoculars, or other optical device.

Similarly, do not look at the sun through a camera, a telescope, binoculars, or any other optical device while using your eclipse glasses or hand-held solar viewer — the concentrated solar rays will damage the filter and enter your eye(s), causing serious injury.

If you do not have eclipse glasses, you can still see the eclipse safely by using a projection method. Easy to make/use pinhole and optical projections are explained at: https://eclipse.aas.org/eye-safety/projection.

Social Media:
Follow Dr. Rich Clark and 12 meteorology students, on Millersville University’s social media accounts, as they document the solar eclipse from Tennessee.

ALERTS FOR MILLERSVILLE UNIVERSITY FACULTY, STAFF AND STUDENTS

As I look forward to welcoming new and returning faculty, students and staff to the beginning of a new semester, I am also painfully aware of recent events around the country and particularly in Charlottesville, Virginia.

I want to be clear that violence motivated by hate, bigotry, or racism is never acceptable. Such actions do not align with Millersville University’s EPPIC values – Exploration, Professionalism, Public Mission, Integrity, Compassion. These values influence how we respond to current events.

Exploration – MU strives to create an environment where we can explore what it means to be a diverse community. Faculty, students, staff and administrators began meeting last semester to brainstorm ways in which the campus community can have meaningful and impactful dialogue about who we are and how we will create a safe community for everyone.

Professionalism- We treat each other with dignity and respect as MU community members. We expect professionalism to infuse our interactions because it is possible to disagree strongly without engaging in hateful rhetoric or violent behavior. That is the essence of being a professional.

Public Mission- As a public institution, we serve the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania by educating students and hiring employees who come from all walks of life. We fulfill our mission by embracing that diversity.

Integrity – MU community members are expected to interact with each other and the global community with integrity, honor and respect. The old saying, “Charity begins at home,” is equally true for integrity.

Compassion – Perhaps the most important of all our EPPIC values for without compassion our exploration, professionalism, commitment to our public mission, and integrity lack the humanness that gives our values meaning. It is not enough to have empathy for victims of violence; we must have the compassion to know that all of us are affected by acts of violence and it is, therefore, incumbent upon us to work together for social justice and equality.

This is a defining moment in history. Let us commit ourselves to creating on our campus and in our communities – a climate of respect and inclusion, a culture of acceptance that affirms our similarities and differences, an environment where each member of society is valued for his/her/their uniqueness. There will be a number of opportunities around campus this semester for us to engage in dialogue, to practice empathy, and to treat others with dignity and respect. I challenge each of us to take advantage of those opportunities.

Thank you,

John M. Anderson, Ph.D.

President
