Down Trees Update
Winter storm Riley, the bomb cyclone that caused significant damage up and down the east coast is to blame for several downed trees here at Notre Dame. A total of 11 trees came down during Friday’s massive wind storm, including several that had been standing for numerous decades.
Fortunately, no injuries were reported on campus as a result of the storm. Crews are expected to begin removing the trees as early as Thursday. In the meantime, we ask that you take caution walking through campus as there may be residual debris stuck in trees that could fall.
Students Meet with State Leaders in Annapolis
Three Notre Dame students recently spent the day in the state capital for the Independent Higher Education Day. The event was an opportunity for Jessie Willingham, Alexis Stevenson and Ciarese Guia Marie De Torres to join President Yam in Annapolis to meet with members of the Maryland General Assembly. The main purpose of the day is to thank legislators for their support of independent higher education in Maryland and to advocate for the lawmakers continued support.
100,000 Strong Americas Grant
Notre Dame recently received the 100,000 Strong in the Americas Innovation Grant for its “Aqua/Water = Vida/Life” proposal. Deriving from a joint effort between Peru and the United States, the funding acts as a bridge between cultures, supporting both country’s environmental breakthroughs.
The grant, created through a public-private sector collaboration called the Innovation Fund, will go toward new student exchange programs, training opportunities in environmental science, water resource management, science, engineering and mathematics. Notre Dame was one of 13 unique higher education programs to receive the grant, “the time and efforts in your team’s grant proposal is greatly appreciated and made it stand out,” said John McPhail, President & CEO of Partners of the Americas.
Notre Dame has plans to establish a reciprocal exchange program with sister school, Universidad Femenina del Sagrado Corazón, located in Peru. The new development will allow both schools to properly educate students on water, its usage and conservation, and cross-cultural understanding. The hands-on service learning provides a multidimensional comprehension of water and life through environmental, political, and economic lenses.

- Claudia Cameron - a local art therapist whose mother and father escaped occupied Germany as young children
- Elizabeth Hlavek - a local art therapist and curator of NDMU’s new exhibit, Meaning Making Through Art Making: From the Holocaust to Contemporary Art Therapy Practices on display in Gormley Gallery.
February Career Center News
Seven students from Notre Dame traveled by bus with students from Towson University, Loyola University and Johns Hopkins University to the 2018 BEYA Global Competiveness Conference in Washington DC on Saturday, February 10th. (Please find a photos attached) The participants were Freshmen, Sophomores and Juniors. They found the experience very rewarding and many hope to return to the conference again next year. When asked about their thoughts about their experience, one student replied that she would “highly recommend for students of STEM background; especially beneficial for upperclassmen with internship opportunities and entry-level jobs from top organizations”.
Here's proof that Notre Dame brings the jobs to you. On Thursday, February 22nd, the NSA was on campus visiting classrooms, providing an Employer Meet & Greet Session, an Information Session and onsite interviews. Several students were interviewed and three were given job offers (pending security clearance)!
Busta Lecture Series
Hundreds turn out in LeClerc Auditorium for Notre Dame’s annual Charles J. Busta II Lecture in Business series. The February 13 event featured Baltimore City Mayor Catherine E. Pugh. She shared leadership lessons from her personal and professional journey, including her time as a banker, business developer, editor, visionary founder, and more. Mayor Pugh also talked about her role as a politician and being the mayor of one of the largest cities in the United States.
The Busta Lecture series invites speakers who are recognized as experts in their chosen fields, who have made a real difference, overcome significant obstacles, or demonstrated dramatic success. The series serves as a platform for inspiring business leaders, especially women leaders, in order to encourage creativity and personal growth.
Every year, the graduating Women's College students gather for a reception marking the 100 nights until Commencement. This year’s event was held the Murphy Gathering Space of Gibbons Hall, breaking a long-standing tradition of being held in Noyes Alumnae House. The reason? The Class of 2018 wanted to include alumnae as well graduate and doctoral students.
The occasion included a cocktail hour, followed by dinner in Doyle Formal and an exciting night out in Federal Hill.
The tradition of 100 nights was established around the 1980s, and has become a time for graduating seniors to reflect on their experiences as undergraduates at Notre Dame.
Easter Candy Drive
It’s time to hop on over to the Campus Ministry and Service office to help support the We Cancerve Movement, a non-profit organization founded by Grace Callwood, a 12-year-old cancer survivor. The idea is to donate individually wrapped candy for the Eggstra Special Easter basket project which provides Easter baskets for homeless, sick, and foster children in Baltimore.
Last year Notre Dame donated two boxes full of candy and contributed to the 470 baskets that were made. From now until March 19, individually wrapped candy will be accepted in the Campus Ministry and Service office, Theresa 124.

The career wear closest is part of the University’s commitment to making sure our students are learning professional excellence and are prepared for the job market and potential interviews.
Last semester, the Career Center helped dozens of students be interview ready thanks to your donations. If you’d like to help, please drop off career/interview appropriate clothing to the Career Center, in Fourier 001.
Don’t have any attire to donate? No worries, The Career Center also accepts monetary donations that will be used to purchase items from area thrift stores.

Associate Professor of Mathematics Dr. Kristyanna Erickson recently gave presentations on Using ALEKS in Developmental Mathematics at several Mid-Atlantic colleges. She spoke at Harrisburg Area Community College in Pennsylvania, NOVA Louden in Virginia, Wor Wic Community College in Maryland, and Gallaudet University in Washington DC.
Congratulations to Religious Studies associate professor Dr. Wakoh Shannon Hickey, her work in the emerging field of Interfaith Studies and her uses of contemplative and experiential teaching methods are garnering national attention. These methods will be highlighted in a book chapter forthcoming this summer: “Meeting Others, Seeing Myself: Experiential Pedagogies in Interfaith Studies.” The book, to be published by Beacon Press in August, is titled Interreligious/Interfaith Studies: Defining a New Field. The chapter is co-authored with Dr. Margarita Suárez of Meredith University. Last spring, researchers from Wofford College and the Interfaith Youth Core (IFYC) visited Notre Dame to observe these methods and interview students in Dr. Hickey’s Morrissy Honors class, “Caregiving at the End of Life,” co-taught with Hannah Murphy Buc, MSN, RN, Assistant Professor of Nursing. Their research project, funded by the Wabash Center for Teaching and Learning in Theology and Religion, highlights about a dozen faculty around the country who are doing innovative work in Interfaith Studies. As part of this project, Dr. Hickey will attend a special colloquium in Chicago this fall to discuss the research and new directions in this growing field. The colloquium will be hosted by IFYC, a Chicago non-profit that fosters interfaith engagement on college campuses around the country.
Dr. Hickey has also been invited to contribute a chapter to a book on mindfulness, to be published next year by Routledge Press, which involves a trip to Switzerland in 2019 to confer with the other authors and editors. As for Dr. Hickey's book on the religious history of mind-body medicine, it is forthcoming from Oxford University Press, and is projected to be out sometime this year. It is titled Mind Cure: How Meditation Became Medicine, and NDMU undergraduate Gabriela Torres has provided invaluable help with research, indexing, and editorial feedback.
Voice instructor and mezzo-soprano Christine Thomas-O'Meally will be performing her cabaret show, "Oh, to be a Movie Star!" along with singer/pianist Ryan Cappleman at Germano's Piattini in Little Italy on Friday, April 13, 2018.
An avid fan of movies and movie actors since her childhood, Christine has collected songs over the years, not specifically from films but about them and their now-legendary stars. The show features familiar music by Elton John and Andrew Lloyd Webber and more obscure songs by Leiber & Stoller and Christopher Berg. Oh, to be a Movie Star! is, at turns, funny, touching, and above all, a celebration of the cinematic art.
Dinner service begins at 6 p.m., with the show starting at 7:30 p.m. For more information and to purchase tickets, check out the event website.

Doctors. Sabita Persaud, Associate Dean, Graduate Programs and Kathy Wisser, School of Nursing Dean recently attended a round table discussion with Mary Wakefield, PhD, RN, FAAN and nursing deans from Maryland, Washington, D.C., and Virginia.
Dr. Wakefield, a nurse and health care administrator, served in the Obama administration as acting United States Deputy Secretary of Health and Human Services from 2015 to 2017, and as head of the Health Resources and Services Administration from 2009 to 2015. Currently, Dr. Wakefield is at Georgetown University School of Nursing & Health Studies as a visiting Distinguished Professor in the Practice of Health Care.
Dr. Patricia Cloonan, Dean of Nursing and Health Studies at Georgetown University invited area deans to share how area nursing programs currently incorporate health policy throughout the undergraduate and graduate curriculum and in what ways health policy curriculum threads are supported by constituents on our campuses. We had an opportunity to share a few strong examples about how Notre Dame currently incorporates health policy in the nursing curriculum. It was evident to Sabita and I that coming from a mission-driven university and a nursing curriculum grounded in caring science and social responsibility provides a strong foundation for students and faculty to participate in substantial experiential learning focused on health policy. Sabita and I walked away from the discussion believing that faculty across campus offer our students a rich experience that rivals larger universities.
