An Apple Distinguished School Moravian University has been recognized as an Apple Distinguished School for 2018–2021. This designation recognizes centers of innovation, leadership, and educational excellence that use technology to inspire creativity, collaboration, and critical thinking and showcase innovative uses of technology in learning, teaching, and the school environment with documented results of academic accomplishment.
Sally Breidegam Miksiewicz Center for Health Sciences The center opened its doors in 2017, welcoming undergraduate and graduate students in nursing, health sciences, computer science, and mathematics. The advanced facility includes simulation labs for nursing and the Flicker Virtual Cadaver Lab, the only virtual cadaver lab in the region. In November 2018, the center received LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) silver certification, an impressive achievement for an energy-hungry science facility.
Music Notes In 2013, Moravian University received designation as an All-Steinway School thanks to a gift from the late Betty Louise Aierstock Moore ’45. The recent installation of a music lab provides students with the equipment to compose and record music digitally. And renovations have just been completed to the recording studio.
The Zinczenko New Media Center Made possible by a generous gift from David Zinczenko ’91, founder of the media company Galvanized, the media center provides students with eight 27-inch Apple desktop computers, a green screen and top-notch video equipment, and a soundproof recording room.
State-of-the-Art Athletic Fields Both the John Makuvek and Rocco Calvo fields have been upgraded with artificial turf.
New Computer Project Lab Renovations have created a space for student project work that engenders collaboration and innovative thinking. Using the newly acquired 3D printer, computer science students created a model of the inner ear to aid the discussion of the vestibular system in health sciences classes. And in collaboration with the biology department, students designed and printed a chamber to facilitate the mating of fruit flies for genetics studies.
The Moravian University GreenHounds Fund Established with a generous contribution from Jon Soden ’91 and his parents, this revolving loan fund supports efforts that advance operational efficiency and reduce the college’s environmental impact. Projects have included the upgrade of lighting throughout campus to energy-efficient bulbs as well as the ongoing installation of occupancy sensors in our buildings. Cost savings are cycled back into the fund.
Upgrades to South Campus Payne Gallery now connects to a new permanent collection gallery, and a climate-controlled vault was installed for storage of the college’s permanent collection.
The Moravian Book Shop The college acquired the oldest bookstore in the country from the Moravian Church Northern Province, thereby preserving this historic treasure. The campus bookstore has moved from the HUB into the shop, strengthening the connection between the North and South Campuses.
