In terms of talent, glamour and wide appeal, few opera singers today rank as high as mezzo-soprano Denyce Graves. No wonder there's quite a buzz at the Peabody Conservatory, where Graves will join the voice faculty in the fall. People are still talking about a master class that Graves gave at the conservatory last September. "She didn't know she was auditioning," said Phyllis Bryn-Julson, the distinguished soprano who chairs the voice department. "It was a phenomenal day for the students.

In yet another step to build the reputation of its growing foreign affairs and language programs, the Naval Academy has named Robert Kaplan - an author and Atlantic Monthly correspondent - as a visiting political science professor. The choice reflects the academy's recent overtures to language and cultural experts to develop a humanities curriculum than can rival the renown of its undergraduate engineering programs. Academy officials have recently unveiled plans to vastly increase instruction in the languages and cultures of regional hot spots where graduating midshipmen are most likely to serve.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- The University of Virginia faculty has rejected a proposal that would have barred romance between professors and undergraduates, and instead voted to ban relationships only between professors and the students they supervise.The proposed ban, which must be approved by the university president, Dr. John T. Casteen III, would forbid professors and graduate teaching assistants from amorous or sexual relationships or overtures involving students whom they teach, coach, evaluate or to whom they allocate money.

If you're in high school -- or in your dotage and still having nightmares about the experience -- the proposition that teachers are from another planet will not seem like a ludicrous Hollywood fantasy. It would be more an affirmation of your long-held suspicions.Of course, it should be immediately added that if you're a teacher, the idea that the student body is composed entirely of hostile aliens amounts to the only logical explanation for their attire, attention span and attitude.But in the shrewdly calculated audience demographics behind "The Faculty," teachers don't count.

You want to see a lively faculty show? Go to the Visual Arts Faculty Exhibition at the University of Maryland Baltimore County's fine arts gallery (through March 2).This is a show in which Symmes Gardner's accomplished painting "As Various as the Lights in a Forest" and Harvey Kirstel's watercolor "South Baltimore" come close to looking out of place as almost the only representatives of traditional art media among the installations, video, computer art and mixed media works.Not all of this work is equally good, some of it is well-nigh unfathomable, and the occasional piece falls on its face.

Tschechtelin.
