Dolly Singley joined Moravian College in August of 2017 as the assistant director for accessibility support. She holds a doctorate of special education and a master’s of education in counseling along with a bachelor’s degree in psychology. After the recent symposium “Comprehensive Care and Support for the Concussed College Student,” Inside Moravian spoke with her about her involvement with the event, her work, and her interests.

“There’s a need for everyone to understand the dilemma of the concussed student,” says Barbara Ryan Hausman, director of academic and accessibility support at Moravian College, “and for us to take a multidisciplinary approach.” Seeing these needs, Hausman worked on a grant through the Lehigh Valley Association of Independent Colleges (LVAIC) that would sponsor a symposium aimed at bringing people together from around the Lehigh Valley to share practices and collaborate on how to support a student—athlete or non-athlete—post concussion. That symposium, “Comprehensive Care and Support for the Concussed College Student,” took place on Saturday, March 17, 2018.

Chemistry can well be described as a study of relationships: the relationships of electrons, protons, and neutrons that make up atoms; the interactions between atoms that bond them together in molecules; or even the breakup of the protons and neutrons in an atom (fission) that produces a powerful release of energy. We use the word chemistry to describe human relationships, too—a romantic attraction between two individuals or the harmonious interaction and bonding among a group of people working together toward a mutual goal. Such interaction occurs regularly throughout Moravian College’s community in classrooms, clubs, sports teams, and among students and alumni, like the connection between alumni Phil Weiser and Gaby Haddad-Weiser and student Bryan Harvey.

Moravian College's Associate Professor of Theater, Christopher Shorr, has written and directed a new musical that runs from April 5-15, 2018, at Touchstone Theatre in Bethlehem. The play, a satire, explores the rumblings of fascism that Shorr has been observing around the world. “Dictators 4 Dummies” has its roots in a discussion Shorr says he had with a Hungarian colleague about the rise of fascist theology in her country. There was consolidation of power by the party in charge, increasing anti-immigrant policies, cronyism, corruption, the firing of leaders of theaters and replacing them with party loyalists. “A lot of them seemed like moves straight out of the fascist playbook from the 1930s,” Shorr says. “I thought, ‘Don’t people remember?’ ”

Moravian College President Bryon Grigsby couldn’t have described it better when talking about the scholarships the college awarded to two Bethlehem high school students: “This is our investment in the future.”

This year marked the third year of the annual awarding of the Bethlehem Area School District (BASD) Superintendent’s Scholarship. Moravian College partners with the district to give one four-year full-tuition scholarship each to a student from Freedom and Liberty High Schools. The students must have demonstrated prowess in the classroom, overcome obstacles, found passion and purpose, and have a compelling life story, says Superintendent Joseph J. Roy.

Jaequan Swint, a senior at Freedom, and Angelica Bennett of Liberty were honored at receptions on March 13. As part of the application process, they had to write essays describing a significant challenge or experience, their response, and what they learned. Excerpts from those essays are included in their stories below.
