Fred Rooney ’75 was selected for a 2019-20 Fulbright U.S. Scholar grant to Bulgaria where he will be working on incubator development for young Roma lawyers. As defined by the American Bar Association, Legal incubators “enable newly admitted layers to acquire the range of skills necessary to launch successful practices that expand access to legal services for those of low and moderate incomes.”

Eradicating poverty and hunger and improving access to quality education, clean water, and health care—these are just some of the issues addressed in the United Nation’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals. It takes a vast network of innovative minds to bring about solutions to the world’s most-pressing challenges—including 15 Moravian student leaders.

There are a number of important socio-political issues that have emerged and become part of the national debate, perhaps more so this year because of the national elections. One of the most concerning is that the rate of suicide in the United States has increased by over 25 percent between 1999 and 2016, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CNN, June 22, 2018: https://www.cnn.com/2018/06/07/health/suicide-report-cdc/index.html). This is a sad and alarming phenomenon.
As such, we took the opportunity to study and discuss this issue by establishing “Doing Good with Self-Esteem,” the theme for the fall semester’s Management 310 course led by Santo D. Marabella, professor of management. Four critically important, relevant, and complex topic categories were created: Context of Healthy Self Esteem; Eroding/Diminishing Self-Esteem; Outcomes of Poor Self-Esteem; and Intervening with Self-Esteem. Students crafted research questions that elaborated on a variety of points of view in each category. Through reviews of the literature and popular press/media, they developed responses to their questions that offered recommendations or strategies to make a positive difference in elevating our self and others’ self.
As a way to share a concise understanding of these topics and the responses the students came to develop, we are happy to include the abstracts of each student’s paper below, along with their name and research question.

Music evokes emotion, mental imagery, and memory. Hear a song associated with a period or moment from your past and you are transported.

Working from this foundational premise, seven undergraduate students, under the direction of Cecilia M. Fox, Louise E. Juley Professor of Biological Sciences and director of Moravian College’s Neuroscience Program, are using music to help improve the quality of life of elderly individuals who struggle with neurological conditions such as dementia or Alzheimer’s disease.

On November 18th, fellow senior Adriana Facchiano and I competed in the 4th annual Michael Karapetian Entrepreneurship Symposium, hosted at Moravian College. We arrived at the Sally Breidgegam Miksiewicz Center for Health Sciences building and were greeted by Gary Kaskowtiz, professor of economics and business, who has facilitated this event over the past four years in partnership with Michael Karapetian, a trustee of Moravian College and himself an entrepreneur. After some opening remarks from President Grigsby, participants moved directly into the first round of presentations.
