While working for VCS Inc.<span>—</span>a mental health counseling and advocacy organization in Rockland County, New York<span>—</span>Wilkins organized the annual “Rockland Pride Sunday.” During her time at the Center for Safety &amp; Change, she developed LGBTQIA+ programming and worked directly with domestic violence and sexual trauma victims. </span></span></p> <p><span><span>In 2016, Wilkins and a few colleagues from VCS Inc. decided that it was time to open a local community center dedicated to the LGBTQIA+ community, so they founded the Rockland County Pride Center in Nyack, New York, which is known today as the Phyllis B. Frank Pride Center of Rockland County. Wilkins served as the deputy director until 2021. “<span>We built one of the best community centers that's out there for LGBTQ+ individuals,” she said. “And I learned so much about not only how to start an organization but also how to make it sustainable and how to provide accountable and life-sustaining service to the community.”</span></span></span>=</p> <p><span><span><span>Wilkins says that she has seen progress in terms of LGBTQIA+ rights and the availability of support services over the years—especially when the marriage equality legislation passed in 2011 in New York State and the Supreme Court decided in favor of same-sex marriage in 2015—but she asserts that there is still a lot of work to do: “Whenever there's progress made, someone always gets left behind. And in the LGBTQ movement historically, transgender people are the ones left behind. More and more, we're seeing trans-led organizations asking for help—not because they don't know how to lead but because the system is broken, so they're not getting the funding or support they need. There’s also a lot of need still in local communities. Serving LGBTQ+ folks is not only about changing policy but also about supporting real people living their best, authentic lives—helping them get bus tickets and deal with food insecurity, for example.”</span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>For the past year, Wilkins has been leveraging her nonprofit expertise to support other organizations locally and across the country. Her nonprofit consulting company, Social Justice Initiatives LLC, offers services including marketing, grant writing and strategic planning. She hopes to grow this business in the coming years to support more deserving organizations and causes. </span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>Much of Wilkins’ consulting work draws on her writing skills, which she was refining back in her time at the College of New Rochelle (CNR). After starting college as a journalism major, she discovered a love for English literature—specifically poetry—during her sophomore year at CNR. She graduated with a bachelor’s degree in journalism and English and then pursued her love of writing poetry by earning a master’s degree in creative writing from Queen’s College and an M.F.A. from Lesley University. Now a published poet, she enjoys helping others discover their passion for the written word as an adjunct professor in English literature at Fairleigh Dickinson University, Ramapo College of New Jersey and Dominican University. </span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>Beyond nurturing her love of writing and literature, CNR helped Wilkins come into her own as a person: “As a young gay woman who had just come out, the sense of family and support definitely shaped me. There were a lot of LGBTQ-identified women on campus, and it was a place where it was ok to be out. It was a magical and transformative time.”</span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>It was at CNR that Wilkins got her first taste of making change: “We pushed the boundaries of how CNR saw us. We pushed to create a support group for lesbian students, for example. We were able to establish relationships and build space for people who were questioning their sexuality or gender identity, for the people who did not feel safe coming out. It meant that people did feel comfortable being who they were. It's almost indescribable what CNR did for us young queer women and how that shaped us to become who we are today.”</span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>Wilkins turned those early experiences with creating safe spaces and making change into a successful nonprofit career dedicated to ensuring equitable resources and opportunities for all.</span></span></span></p></div> Thu, 30 Jun 2022

scholarships to attend Mercy College with limited to no debt. The iMentor Scholars program at Mercy will help ensure iMentor students, many of whom face significant financial hardship and are first-generation college students, continue to achieve success and obtain a college degree.  </span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>iMentor, a national mentoring organization, partners with high schools serving students from marginalized communities and pairs those students with mentors for a minimum of two years. Each student builds a long-term relationship with a committed mentor and receives support from the iMentor program on their journey to college and a career. </span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>Similarly, Mercy’s Personalized Achievement Contract (PACT) Program provides all students with one-on-one, personalized mentorship and support for their entire duration of college. While at Mercy, students are paired with a mentor trained in academic advising, career readiness, student life, financial aid issues and leadership development. </span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>“Mercy College and iMentor have a shared mission of helping students thrive and achieve their dreams of a college degree,” said Adam Castro, Mercy College’s vice president for enrollment management. “The partnership demonstrates that collaboration across educational organizations can change the lives of young people facing significant college access challenges and financial barriers to obtaining a college degree. We have an amazing initial cohort starting at Mercy this fall and I can’t wait see how this partnership blossoms.”</span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>The partnership between Mercy College and iMentor will help strengthen both organizations’ goals of equipping young people from all backgrounds with the support and resources necessary to gain a higher education degree and realize personal and career success. </span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span><span>“Attending college is a transformational experience that can open doors to intellectual inquiries, to new skills and relationships, and to meaningful careers that unlock economic mobility. We are thrilled to partner with Mercy College to enable more students to graduate college with their full financial needs met and with the support of their mentors and iMentor’s Post-Secondary Program,” said Heather Wathington, iMentor CEO. “With a shared mission of expanding educational opportunities for students from marginalized communities, iMentor and Mercy are committed to helping students graduate college and achieve their highest ambitions.”</span></span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>For information on applying to the iMentor program, please contact Kayla Noonan, director of admissions for Mercy College, at (212) 615-3382 or knoonan1@mercy.edu, or Michelle Tsai, director of marketing and communications for iMentor, at (347) 423-058 or mtsai@imentor.org. </span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><strong><span><span>Student testimonials: </span></span></strong></span></span></p> <p><span><span><strong><span><span>Abigail Aviles, Union Square Academy for Health Sciences</span></span></strong></span></span></p> <div class="align-center"> <div class="field field--name-field-media-image field--type-image field--label-hidden field__item"> <img src="/sites/default/files/styles/small/public/2022-06/Abigail.jpg?itok=XGx1xlFl" width="352" height="484" alt="Abigail" loading="lazy" typeof="foaf:Image" /> </div> </div> <p><span><span><span><span>“College is important to me because it’s a whole new experience compared to high school.

This major really aligns with my interests and passions that was fueled from my childhood of watching crime shows. I hope to have a career in law enforcement.

Currently, I am trying to get a job at the Bronx Zoo working with animals. The iMentor scholarship makes Mercy more affordable to attend.

Engel for the 2022 Big Read Initiative,” said Irina Ellison, associate dean of the School of Health and Natural Sciences and project director for the NEA Grant. “As New York’s largest, private, nonprofit Hispanic-Serving Institution, this amazing story will definitely resonate with our students, many of whom are children of immigrants and are first-generation college students.”</span></span></span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span lang="X-NONE" xml:lang="X-NONE" xml:lang="X-NONE"><span><span><span>An initiative of the

<p><span><span><span><span>Mercy College is one of 62 communities nationwide participating in the 2022-2023 NEA Big Read. Beginning in the fall of 2022 our community will celebrate “Infinite Country” with a full calendar of events including book talks, lectures, workshops and cultural activities on themes related to the books. The activities will take place across Mercy’s three campuses located in Dobbs Ferry, Manhattan and the Bronx as well as at partner sites and virtually.</span></span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span><span>Quotes from community partners include:</span></span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span><span><span><span>“The Big Read Project would allow our Scholars to see themselves represented, and to gain exposure to writing as a potential career path. As a local non-profit organization that empowers first-generation Latino students on their journeys to and through college, it is important to uplift Latinx stories, and support a young Latina author like Patricia Engle.” –  Cosette Gutierrez, Executive Director, Latino U College Access (LUCA)</span></span></span></span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span><span>“This opportunity would allow WHCC to partner with Mercy College in reaching out to our diverse Latino communities in Westchester County. We welcome the opportunity to be part of the Big Read Project. Mercy College has always been at the forefront of our community.” –  Sonia Montano, President, Westchester Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (WHCC)</span></span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span><span>“… the opportunity for Mercy College to share Patricia Engle’s book, <em>Infinite Country….</em>is a wonderful way to provide accessibility to those who are unaware of Engle’s excellent storytelling abilities. HACU hopes that Engel’s book will inspire the next generation of Hispanic college students to follow their dreams and share their stories.” – Ebony King, Student Services Manager, Hispanic Association of Colleges &amp; Universities (HACU)</span></span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span><span>“As a national organization that empowers and inspires Latinas to maximize their strength and potential, it is exhilarating to support a young Latina author like Patricia Engle. The prospect of distributing Patricia Engle’s book, <em>Infinite Country </em>for free and hosting author events and presentations is exciting and an opportunity we support and embrace.” –  Nancy Genova, President, 100 Hispanic Women</span></span></span></span></p> <p> </p> <p><span><span><strong><span lang="X-NONE" xml:lang="X-NONE" xml:lang="X-NONE"><span><span>For more information on this

field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p><span><span><span>After receiving an almost $3 million grant from the U.S. Department of Education under the Title V Developing Hispanic Serving Institutions program in 2020, Mercy College is now in the process of implementing several initiatives to expand opportunities and improve outcomes <span>for students studying the health sciences — with a special focus on supporting Hispanic students. While each initiative is administered over the course of five years, the early data is promising.</span></span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>The Advancing <span>Curricular Change to Enhance Student Success (ACCESS) initiative has two primary goals: </span>improve student outcomes in Anatomy &amp; Physiology I (A&amp;P I) — a gateway course for health sciences majors — and fill the region’s pressing need for more nurses by establishing a weekend Accelerated Second Degree Nursing (ASDBS) program. </span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span><span>To meet the first goal, Mercy is implementing several new support services in A&amp;P I, including expanding the Learning Fellows program, redesigning the A&amp;P I lab curriculum and implementing an exam wrapper program. This part of the ACCESS project is led by activity co-directors Irina Ellison, Ph.D., </span></span><span>a</span><span><span>ssociate professor and </span></span><span><span><span>interim associate dean of the School of Health and Natural Sciences;</span></span></span> <span>assistant professor Ferdinand Esser, D.C.; and clinical assistant professor Jean Walsh, D.C</span><span><span>.</span></span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span><span>The Learning Fellows program has existed for several years, but the ACCESS grant — in partnership with </span></span><span>Mercy’s Center for Academic Excellence and Innovation (CAEI) —</span><span><span> is supporting the addition of more training and a greater focus on gathering data on outcomes. Learning Fellows are students who did well in a course in a previous semester and apply to serve as peer mentors for students currently taking the course. They meet weekly with small groups of students to help explain the content, model study skills and build community. </span></span><span>“I can understand some of the struggles they're going through,” said Luis Aguilar ’25, a Learning Fellow who is majoring in nursing. “It feels nice being able to reassure students that no matter how hard it may seem, eventually you all get used to it and you will succeed and thrive.”</span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>Another initiative aimed at increasing student success in A&amp;P I is the recent redesign of the A&amp;P I lab curriculum to be more focused on inquiry and problem-solving. This redesign effort in <span>2017</span> was supported by the generous donation of an Anatomage Table by <span>Gioietta and Alberto Vitale, H.D. ’09</span>. This table — which displays life-size bodily anatomy on what resembles an operating table — enables students to use touch-screen technology to visualize, manipulate and dissect the human body virtually. Once the faculty experienced this cutting-edge technology, they saw all kinds of instructional possibilities, but they needed more Anatomage Tables before they could truly integrate the technology into the curriculum. The ACCESS grant is funding the purchase of four more tables to bring the redesigned curriculum to life. </span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>In partnership with CAEI, the ACCESS project team also developed and piloted an “exam wrapper” program. If a student scores poorly on an exam, they can use the exam wrapper — a metacognitive tool — to reflect on their exam results and identify why they did not perform well, meet with a coach to plan for improvement and then request to retake the exam. Initial data suggests that students who took advantage of this program increased their exam scores an average of seven points upon retesting.</span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span><span>Though many of these A&amp;P I support services are still in the initial stages, there are encouraging results already. “We've seen a significant increase in student success,” said Joan Toglia, former dean of the School of Health and Natural Sciences. “A couple of years ago, 40% to 46% of students were earning grades below C in the Anatomy &amp; Physiology lab. In the fall semester, that was down to 16%. That's a dramatic change!”</span></span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>The ACCESS project’s second goal — filling the region’s pressing need for more nurses by establishing a weekend Accelerated Second Degree Nursing (ASDBS) program — is also in process with the launch of the ASDBS program in September 2021. Designed for students who already hold a bachelor’s degree in a non-nursing field of study, this program requires students to attend 18 months of classes on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. “This program allows a more diverse group of people to train for careers in nursing,” said assistant professor Shevonba Graham, RN — an activity co-director for this part of the ACCESS project along with Professor Deborah Hunt, Ph.D. “Now, someone who works and has a family can pursue their dream of becoming a nurse on the weekends.”</span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>The program involves a mentorship component, which was developed in partnership with New York chapter of the National Association of Hispanic Nurses (NAHN). Nurse mentors meet with Mercy’s ASDBS students at least once per month to share their experiences and guidance. Students find that connecting with nurses currently working in the field, who represent similar cultural backgrounds, provides them with meaningful motivation and support. </span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>Ultimately, once the five-year ACCESS project is complete in 2025, Mercy leaders and faculty will have developed a set of proven practices that enhance student success in terms of, persistence in their majors and programs, graduation rates, growth mindset and sense of belonging. The goal is to share and implement these widely across Mercy College to impact the success of many more Mercy students. </span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span><span>“We’re in the second year of a five-year grant, so we still have time to learn and refine what we're doing,” said Toglia. “But as we create and describe best practices that impact student success, we’re really hoping that those can extend to other courses and programs and that they become institutionalized.”</span></span></span></span></p> <p> </p> <p><span><span><span><span><span><span><span>Click on the below links

Tuesday, June 7 to celebrate Juneteenth, its historical significance and to promote the Juneteenth events of community-based organizations that are helping to raise awareness. </p> <p>The celebration took place at Mercy’s Manhattan Campus, located in New York City’s famed Herald Square, and gathered nonprofit leaders, business executives and elected officials in recognition of Juneteenth. Interim Vice President of MercyManhattan Scorpio Rogers played the role of master of ceremonies during the event, while Mercy alumna Celestina “Celeste” Fleurival ’20, MS ’22 performed “The Star-Spangled Banner,” and “Lift Every Voice and Sing.” </p> <p>The program, made up of several distinguished community leaders, included Karim Marshall, general counsel and chief operating officer of the Juneteenth Foundation; Mercy alumna Nakia James-Jenkins ’01, partner at On-Ramps; and New York State Assemblymember Chantel Jackson (AD-79).  </p> <p>In his opening remarks, Hall – who grew up about 20 minutes from Galveston, Texas and was a third grader living in Texas and enrolled in the educational system where Blacks were still separated from whites in the classroom – emphasized how Mercy is on the path, and has made great strides, in ensuring students of color succeed in gaining college degrees. “The action in terms of bachelor’s degree attainment for students of color is happening at places like Mercy College because we’re committed to the work. We don’t believe equality is won without that work. And we’re seeing a lot of success,” Hall said.  </p> <p>Marshall provided an overview of The Juneteenth Foundation, the organization that successfully championed the designation of Juneteenth as a federal holiday. He described the impetus for starting the Foundation: “We wanted to provide a platform to address some deep-seeded issues that the Black community has experienced, but to also create an opportunity to focus on Black excellence and culture, and to allow for education and reconciliation.” </p> <p>James-Jenkins, partner at an On-Ramps, an executive leadership search firm and previous vice president, people &amp; culture for Girls Who Code, explained to the audience what she gained from Mercy’s organizational leadership graduate degree program. “Mercy’s program had a deep commitment to think about yourself in three lenses,” she described. “Think about yourself as an individual leader, how you impact the organizations that you lead and your impact on the world.” James-Jenkins appreciates her alma mater’s commitment to equity, and how Mercy has built real programs around the elevation of students of color. </p> <p>Jackson, who represents constituents in parts of Concourse Village, Morrisania, Melrose, Belmont, Claremont and East Tremont, spoke to the obstacles she has overcome, her professional background as an educator, social worker and advocate, and what inspired her to run for elected office. She was moved by the opportunity to inspire young people and impact social and economic policy on a larger scale. “I realized that being an educator in a school, I wasn’t going to be able to affect change the way I wanted to affect change, so I needed to take another step,” Jackson said. “If there’s anything that I can leave you all with today, it is to mentor a young person – start conversations and encourage young people. You never know what that one conversation will lead to.”  </p> <p>To learn more about Mercy College or to participate in future community events, please contact Mercy College Associate Directors of

field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p><span><span><span>Marc Palmieri, assistant professor of communication studies at Mercy College, has a new book coming out that chronicles his family’s ordeal when their pre-teenage daughter underwent a life-changing health crisis. The book, “She Danced with Lightning: My Daughter's Struggle with Epilepsy and Her Boundless Will to Live,” will be published in August by Post Hill Press and distributed by Simon &amp; Shuster. </span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>The publisher’s summary reads: “Part family memoir, part medical mystery involving severe epilepsy, 'She Danced with Lightning' follows one girl’s battle to persevere as a competitive dancer, culminating in a terrifying decline, a courageous performance, and an eleventh hour, life-saving brain surgery.” </span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>Palmieri was inspired to write the book after his daughter Anna’s lifelong battle with epilepsy took a dire turn as she neared her twelfth birthday. Although epilepsy is quite common—affecting 50 million people worldwide—it is sometimes called a “hidden disability.” Said Palmieri, “In the ten years we lived with Anna’s condition, like many parents of children with epilepsy, we looked to books that might help us, but found relatively little on the subject. I felt almost compelled to write about it."</span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>Well before its release, the book seems to have touched a nerve. In the coming months Palmieri will be featured on podcasts, television shows and a major book festival. Media organizations have run stories about the Palmieri family and their ordeal. The Mercy professor has had discussions with a major health network and several epilepsy organizations that view the book’s insights and harrowing details as a springboard to raising awareness.</span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>In addition, Mercy’s School of Natural and Health Sciences has selected the book for its next common read and panel discussion. This fall, “She Danced with Lightning” will be required or recommended reading for faculty and students at the school and will serve as the basis of an interprofessional panel discussion to take place later in the year.</span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>Palmieri, who teaches oral communication as well as theater, film and directing, encourages his students to recognize the value of their own experience. “Our students make tremendous sacrifices to be here, and many of them are the first in their family to attend college. Every one of them has a story worth sharing. I tell my students, your voice is your most important attribute, and it’s just as worthy of sharing as anyone else’s.”</span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>The crisis period covered in the book occurred during his first year of teaching at Mercy. “In the book I mention some of the subjects I was teaching that helped me make sense of the experience,” he said. “It was important for me to demonstrate how dearly I hold education and how grateful I am that my role at Mercy allows me share that appreciation with my students.”</span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>He goes on to draw a parallel between the writing of a memoir and one of the cornerstone values Mercy College provides its students. “For me, storytelling comes from what we’ve learned,” he said. “That’s the beauty of a liberal arts education—the lifelong learning that comes from noticing what’s going on around you and what it shows you about yourself.”</span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>The book is currently available for advance purchase on Amazon, and will be released in paperback, e-reader and audiobook formats. Palmieri, who is a working actor, screenwriter, playwright and director, recently learned that he was chosen to perform the reading of the audio book.</span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>To

field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p><span><span>On June 2, Mercy College held a Pride Month community reception hosted by President Tim Hall at the Bronx Campus to recognize the achievements of the LGBTQIA+ leaders who are making an impact at Mercy and in the community. </span></span></p> <p><span><span>At the start of the program, Hall welcomed Mercy’s community partners to the Bronx Campus, and emphasized Mercy’s aim to support and provide resources for LGBTQIA+ students, faculty and staff. “This is where we celebrate and honor the contributions of our LGBTQIA+ students and make sure that we constantly remind ourselves that we aspire to create a community in which they are respected, included and honored,” Hall said.  </span></span></p> <p><span><span>The first panel discussion, which featured Mercy community partners, included: Justin Cortes, chief of staff for Bronx Borough President Vanessa Gibson; Sean Coleman, executive director of Destination Tomorrow; and Odis Guerrero, deputy chief of staff for the Office of New York State Assemblymember Nathalia Fernandez. </span></span></p> <p><span><span>During the panel, Cortes spoke to the significance of serving as chief of staff for the Bronx Borough president as an LGBTQIA+ person of color. “This Pride Month is particularly important because serving in this position – it’s not carved out by people who look like me. One of my biggest insecurities coming into this office was, am I that candidate?” said Cortes. “But, coming into this office, it is my duty to create opportunities for people who look like me. I have long hair. I’m LGBTQ. I’m the only Latino on record – Puerto Rican born – that has served under this capacity.” </span></span></p> <p><span><span>Coleman, the first African American of Transgender Experience to operate an LGBTQIA+ Center in New York City History, remarked on the importance of Pride events in fostering intersectional and intergenerational discussions about the true meaning and historical significance of Pride. He also provided an overview of Destination Tomorrow, the Bronx LGBTQIA+ Center in which he leads. “I wanted Destination Tomorrow’s focus to be on economic empowerment. I wanted to make sure that the LGBTQIA+ community in the Bronx has the tools to be successful.”</span></span></p> <p><span><span>Guerrero, a first-generation Dominican from the Bronx, mentioned the importance of supporting the LGBTQIA+ population, many of whom experience barriers to health care, education and economic opportunities, in her borough of origin. “It’s been a tough past two years with the pandemic. These disparities, while they’ve always been there, are now emphasized.” Additionally, Guerrero proudly spoke of her mother’s journey from immigrant to Mercy College graduate. She recalled helping her mother along the way, translating coursework from Spanish to English for her mother and staying up late to help her succeed. </span></span></p> <p><span><span>The second panel discussion, which featured Mercy staff and faculty, included: Lyn Leis, director of career education for Mercy College’s Career and Professional Development Office; Jack Simons, assistant professor of counseling for Mercy College; and Patricio </span></span>Mujica-Urzúa<span><span>, assistant professor of biology at Mercy College. </span></span></p> <p><span><span>Leis discussed Mercy’s efforts to guide LGBTQIA+ students as they navigate the career search process. “We have to create a space that’s inclusive,” Leis explained. She also emphasized the work she is doing to advise companies on how to uplift and support LGBTQIA+ entry level – and all level – employees. “We have the power to work with employers and ask them how they are going to promote a psychologically safe environment for LGBTQIA+ individuals.”</span></span></p> <p><span><span>Simons presented an overview of his position as director of the Transgender Resilience Project, launched in January of this year, which is the first cross-national, strength-based lifespan study of the experiences of transgender and gender diverse people at difference ages. “What I’m excited to say is that we are getting people to tell us about their life stories, and what they’re doing to persist, and how they grow. We’re looking at different stages of development,” Simons explained. “And these are all new areas of scholarship.”</span></span></p> <p>Mujica-Urzúa, a vascular cell biologist with 10 years of experience in scientific research and education, discussed his goal of developing curricula and practices that address diversity, equity and inclusion so that students are then prepared to address the health needs of people from all backgrounds as health professionals in the field. "It's of paramount importance to me to teach from a point of authenticity," he explained. "I teach anatmony and physiology - and my students are embarking on their journeys as health care professionals. They will be facing all populations - including LGTBQIA+ populations - in their fields."</p> <p><span><span>To view additional photos from the Mercy College Pride Month Celebration, please see below.

field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p>On Wednesday, June 1, 2022 Mercy College conferred a total of 40 bachelor of science and associate of science degrees to graduates of the Hudson Link for Higher Education program situated at Sing Sing Correctional Facility in Ossining, New York. Since the inception of the program, Mercy has awarded more than 300 degrees.</p> <p>This is the first- time graduation was held since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Twelve students received Bachelor of Science in Behavioral Science degrees and 28 received Associate of Science in Liberal Arts degrees, all conferred by Mercy College President Timothy Hall. The commencement address was delivered by Jesse Williams, actor and activist.</p> <p>“We are proud of our ongoing partnership with Hudson Link for Higher Education,” said Timothy Hall, President of Mercy College. “Mercy is committed to providing resources for students to succeed, no matter one’s circumstances and our graduates today have demonstrated what it takes to create a better future for themselves.”</p> <p>Hudson Link for Higher Education in Prison was formed in January of 1998 to help restore college education in prison. The organization helps provide college education, life skills, and reentry support to currently and formerly incarcerated people. Their holistic program structure follows each student through their academic and reentry journey with services such as college readiness support, on-site academic coordinators, tutoring, and computer labs.</p> <p>Mercy College’s partnership with Hudson Link began in 2001, and Mercy’s first graduating class received its degrees in 2004.</p> <p>Sean Pica, Executive Director of Hudson Link for Higher Education added: “Mercy College has been instrumental in providing academically rigorous undergraduate education to our students and we are thankful to have them as partners as we do this difficult but incredibly rewarding work together. Our students have overcome seemingly impossible odds, especially throughout the pandemic, to reach this milestone and we could not be prouder of each and every one of them.”</p></div> Wed, 01 Jun 2022

walking together during the College’s School of Social and Behavioral Sciences commencement ceremony taking place Thursday, May 19 from 9:30 – 11:30 a.m. on Mercy’s Dobbs Ferry Campus. </span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>Fifty-seven-year-old Gloria Slater ’21, mother to 35-year-old Shonda Slater ’22, will not just be watching her daughter walk across Mercy’s commencement stage – she will be a participant in the ceremonies. Gloria, who earned her bachelor’s degree in legal studies, has waited a year to walk to celebrate her accomplishment and graduate college side-by-side with her daughter. Her daughter Shonda is also earning her bachelor’s and will be graduating with a degree in criminal justice. </span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>Gloria’s interest in law started when she was just a teenager. She was a critical thinker from the start, often asking big-picture questions when her siblings and classmates were less interested in knowing – to put it in Gloria’s terms – “…why things were the way they were.” She has been going to college since the 1980s, with the aspiration of one day being an attorney. Gloria has had to take time off from her studies to care for several family members, most recently her mother. While her path to a college degree had many twists and turns, she kept going back to school, because according to Gloria, “…knowledge is power – especially in today’s world.”</span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>“It’s a huge accomplishment, getting a bachelor’s degree. It took me a long time to get that little piece of paper, and I did it. I can say that I did it,” Gloria says, as she reflects on her journey. </span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>Shonda works for the Department of Community and Family Development in Dutchess County as an eligibility examiner. She was inspired to pursue criminal justice largely due to her mother's influence. </span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span> “I worked to inspire my daughter to get an education. She came to Mercy after me,” Gloria explained. </span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>In terms of going to law school, Gloria believes age isn’t a factor to obtaining a Juris Doctor. “I don’t care if I’m 99-years-old, walking across the stage. I’m going to get a law degree.”</span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>Both women overcame obstacles brought upon by the pandemic to succeed at Mercy and earn their degrees. They are grateful for Mercy’s faculty and staff for their support, as well as the College’s resources for nontraditional students, many of whom have unique needs. </span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>“I tell others in my position to not give up. Things will get hard, but you’ll find a way. If it’s truly in your heart you can do it. Even if you must take one class at a time,” Gloria said. </span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>Mercy College will celebrate 2,670 graduates from the Class of 2022 at its commencement ceremonies. The return of commencement to the Dobbs Ferry Campus marks the first time in 35 years that graduation ceremonies will be held on-campus. In addition to the in-person ceremonies, all commencement addresses and awarding of diplomas will be live-streamed for families, friends and guests of the graduating students.</span></span></span></p>

field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p><span><span><span>Eniola Ogunlade ’23, recently elected president of the Mercy College student body, is making plans for her term that begins in the fall. The psychology major, who will graduate in May of 2023, said she is looking forward to meeting more people and taking a leadership role in student government. </span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>Ogunlade has been a familiar face on the Mercy campus ever since she first arrived as a freshman. Over the years, her participation has ranged from dance and step teams to student government to advocacy groups like the Black Student Union. She also worked in the Office of Student Life where she was able to meet just about every person on campus.</span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>The catalyst for </span><span>much of Ogunlade’s involvement, both in high school and at Mercy, has been inspired by her father, who was incarcerated while she was in high school. She became involved with the Osbourne Association, <span><span>which provides services for incarcerated people and their families. </span></span>There she overcame her fear of public speaking and learned to advocate for herself and others. Among her accomplishments: lobbying for a bill that would provide transportation for family members to visit incarcerated loved ones and working at an after-school program with children of incarcerated parents. “Because of what I had experienced, I was always able to provide them</span><span> with motivating words,” she said.</span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>Also in high school, Ogunlade was involved with the Give Back Foundation, an organization that provides mentorship and scholarships to students who have faced economic hardship and other adversities such as foster care or the incarceration of a parent. The Give Back Foundation, in partnership with Mercy, provided a scholarship for Ogunlade, and many other students, to go to Mercy College and obtain a degree without the burden of costs typically associated with higher education. Now, as Give Back Scholar at Mercy College, Ogunlade is thriving academically and in her extracurricular pursuits. Along with her steadfast determination and grit, her success has been supported by the Give Back Foundation’s college-readiness services, as well as Mercy’s student support resources. </span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>Ogunlade said she looks forward to listening to students and being an instrument of positive change. “As student body president you have a big platform where you can say and do a lot to make a difference,” she said. “Being a black student can be challenging,” she added, but expressed her appreciation for supportive members of the Mercy staff and administration who have demonstrated their openness to discussions with students who feel that the College can be more inclusive.</span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>The student body president-elect plans to become a teacher, a goal that has become clearer during her time at Mercy and through her experiences as the child of an incarcerated parent. While volunteering, “I met so many children who didn’t know how to cope,” she said. “I was able to help them because of everything I experienced and the people I met. My dad’s incarceration set everything in motion, and now I’m excited to begin this new chapter.”</span></span></span></p></div> Mon, 16 May 2022 15:57:38 +0000 jepsteinhoellger@mercy.edu 3966 at

Annual Student-Preneur Conference and Business Plan Competition, which promoted entrepreneurship and celebrated the growing number of student entrepreneurs at Mercy. The event was held on the Dobbs Ferry Campus and included the final round of the Business Plan Competition, an entrepreneurship <a>panel</a> and a keynote speaker. </span></span></p> <p><span><span>The event on the Dobbs Ferry Campus drew more than 500 attendees who participated in person and virtually from viewing parties at the Bronx and Manhattan Campuses, including 400 virtual attendees from the Academy of Finance at Lincoln High School in Yonkers.</span></span></p> <p><span><span><span><span><span><span>The conference was sponsored by the Beba Innovation &amp; Entrepreneurship Foundation, a non-profit organization founded by global business executives Umran Beba, M.B.A., H.D. ’22 and Professor Ali Beba that helps young women entrepreneurs turn their ideas into applications, commercial products and/or services for global markets. The organization’s mission is to create passion, ignite enthusiasm and prepare entrepreneurs by implementing continuous educational and training activities, <a>mentorship</a> and outreach programs. </span></span></span></span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span><span><span><span>Mercy College was pleased to recently recognize Umran’s contribution to the Mercy community by bestowing her with an honorary degree from the School of Business (SBUS). As the school’s honorary degree recipient, Umran delivered remarks during the SBUS commencement ceremony and provided graduates with valuable insights and guidance.</span></span></span></span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span><span><span><span>Umran is proud of her multi-faceted partnership with Mercy College. “Good ideas do not show up every day. When they are nurtured, they grow, become businesses, and help others in the end. We are proud to be partners with Mercy College and support the Student-Preneur conference, as well as other Mercy initiatives,” Umran said.</span></span></span></span></span></span></p> <p><span><span>Korhan Beba, executive director of the Beba Innovation &amp; Entrepreneurship Foundation, provided opening remarks, while Umran also acted as a judge during the business plan competition.</span></span></p> <p><span><span>"Our mission at the Beba Foundation is to encourage and support young entrepreneurs to follow their dreams and make things happen. We provide training, mentoring and financial support through initiatives like the <a>Student</a>-Preneur Business Plan Competition at Mercy College. This was an amazing event with some brilliant pitches, and we cannot wait to see what is next in 2023,” Korhan said.</span></span></p> <p><span><span>Robert Bohn, director of Entrepreneurship at Mercy’s School of Business organized the conference, along with Kristin Ludl, associate director of Business Operations. “Mercy is a school of entrepreneurship,” Bohn said. “Our Mercy students are just tremendous when you give them an opportunity. That’s what this conference and the competition were all about,” Bohn said.</span></span></p> <p><span><span>The event included opening remarks by Lloyd G. Gibson, dean of the School of Business, and Korhan. An Entrepreneurship Incubator Panel featured the founders of several companies that are housed at the Mercy Business Incubation Center on the Bronx Campus and, María Trusa, CEO of Formé Medical <a>Center</a> and Urgent Care, gave the keynote speech. Trusa’s recent book, “I Say No More” about overcoming her past and finding success was the inspiration for her remarks. </span></span></p> <p><span><span>The centerpiece of the entire conference was the final round of the Business Plan Competition. For months, School of Business faculty Abdel-Kader Ben-Mohamed, Susan Cooper, Mahmud Wazihullah and Bohn have offered sessions and mentorship to help students prepare for the competition. Mercy’s student-run chapter of the Collegiate Entrepreneurs’ Organization, which is known as the CEO Club and led by Kaycee Moreno ’22 and Denisa Ademaj ’22, has also supported student entrepreneurs through regular meetings.</span></span></p> <p><span><span>Initially, a total of 26 students or student teams from across Mercy entered the Business Plan Competition, which was no small feat. The application requires an executive summary, a business plan, a business plan PowerPoint <a>presentation</a> and a video presentation. The five top-ranked finalists—Tereva Bundy, M.S. ’22, Unique Online Reading Tutor; Travis Cox, James Kyle LLC; Astriz Contreras ’22, AA Luxurious Cleaning; Victor Rosado ’22, Clutch Nation; and Leilani Tyson ’23, Lay Styles—were then invited to present their business plans to the judges at the <a>Student</a>-Preneur Conference.</span></span></p> <p><span><span>Bundy won first place and a $1,500 prize for pitching her business, Unique Online Reading Tutor. She is pursuing her master’s degree in educational administration at Mercy and was the only finalist not from the School of Business. As a public-school teacher, she thought of her business idea while teaching remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic. </span></span></p> <p><span><span>“Preparing for the competition helped me to actually start the business,” she said. “The professors said that I was onto something and that I was doing <a>a good job</a>. And I felt like I could <a>do</a> this. I was surprised because <a>I am</a> not a business major! But through this <a>whole process</a>, I discovered that I didn’t need a major or a school to teach me. It was inside of me the whole time.” She already has three families as clients. </span></span></p> <p><span><span>Second place and a $1,000 prize went to Cox who pitched James Kyle LLC, which will make men’s wallets with a variety of colors and patterns that allow customers to express themselves. His business is in the final stages before launch. “I’ve never owned a business,” he said. “At times I wondered, ‘Am I even on the right track?’ So, to find out I was a finalist of a competition like this is <a>very rewarding</a>.” This is Cox’s first year at Mercy after transitioning out of the military, and he is currently serving in the Army National Guard. </span></span></p> <p><span><span>Contreras won third place and a $500 prize with her business plan for AA Luxurious Cleaning, which launched in February offering cleaning services in the New York City area. “I saw this as an opportunity to figure out how I can truly achieve my goals and the level of prosperity and success that I want,” she said. She also values all the people she got to know while preparing for the competition: “This is about growing long-term and hopefully lifelong networks, relationships and mentors that we can continue to go back to for advice whenever we need to in the next five, 10, 20 years.”</span></span></p> <p><span><span>The <a>Student</a>-Preneur Conference is just one of many entrepreneurship opportunities available at Mercy. The Mercy Business Incubation Center continues to offer students the opportunity to work with growing businesses, and the student-run CEO Club continues to support students in pursuing their dreams of entrepreneurship. Bohn plans to continue to expand the conference and its audience in addition to creating new opportunities for social entrepreneurship, securing new sponsorships and much more. </span></span></p> <div

York City-based Model United Nations (MUN) Conference, which hosted approximately 1,300 students and faculty members from around the world. </span></span></span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span><span><span>The Mercy student team was proud to receive the Distinguished Delegation Award, an award given to teams that demonstrate critical thinking, problem solving, leadership and diplomatic skills, as well as two awards for Outstanding Position Paper</span></span></span><span><span><span>. The winning papers covered the following topics: countering the threat posed by explosive devices, reducing nuclear danger, migration and racial discrimination, and ensuring access to preventative health care for migrant workers. </span></span></span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span><span><span>This was the ninth consecutive year since 2013 – excluding 2020, when the conference was canceled due to the pandemic – that a Mercy team took home awards from the MUN conference. The awards signify performance in the top 10 percent of participants.</span></span></span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span><span><span>During the conference, Mercy students were divided into teams, known as committees, representing different countries, and asked to present solutions to the social, economic and political challenges that those countries face. Some Mercy students were granted committee chair positions, which are given to students on a selective basis after they complete an application and interview process. These students were also tasked with presenting in front of the 400 conference attendees.</span></span></span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span><span><span>Students on the Mercy MUN team are those that are currently enrolled in the College’s Model United Nations class. The class prepares students throughout two semesters for</span></span></span><span><span><span> the conference, and the gathering is the culmination and practical application of all their hard work in the classroom. Davina Resto ’22 describes attending the conference as one of the highlights of h<span><span>er </span></span><span><span>is </span></span>college career. Ryan Miglio ’22, a senior business student who has participated in three conferences and was awarded the position of committee chair this year, said, “Experiencing the conference from a chair position and seeing how my teammates have developed over time is something I will never forget.”</span></span></span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span><span><span>As a first-time participant, Kristina Furuseth ’24 was initially nervous about participating in the conference. However, she gained newfound confidence from the overall experience: “I am very grateful that I had this experience…the anxious feeling turned into excitement.” While Louise Boyer, a business exchange student from France, said that she, “…learned a lot and gained new perspectives.” She is now motivated to study international relations.</span></span></span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span><span><span>Mercy College President Tim Hall, Interim Provost Peter West and Interim Vice attended the conference in support of the students. </span></span></span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span><span><span>Michiko Kuroda, lecturer in international relations diplomacy at Mercy, is the faculty adviser for the MUN Mercy College team and teaches the Model United Nations class. Kuroda worked at the United Nations for 30 years and now teaches international negotiation and diplomacy, international security studies, managing human conflicts, among other international relations classes, at Mercy’s Manhattan<span><span> and Dobbs Ferry </span></span>Campus<span><span>es</span></span>. As an educator, the three learning principles that Kuroda strives to instill in students are focus, excellence and teamwork. </span></span></span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span><span><span>“Preparing and participating in the Model United Nations Conference teaches students that once you set a goal, and work toward that goal, you will achieve something and doors will open,” said Kuroda. “Students are studying international relations because they want to make a difference in the world. I want to show them – through the conference and my teachings – that they can, step by step, make a difference. Especially when working collaboratively with others to solve problems.”</span></span></span></span></span></p> <div class="align-center"> <div class="field field--name-field-media-image

<span><span>educational resources for parents, students and teachers, will host a panel of experts to discuss how parents can guide their children toward greater independence in communicating with teachers and other adults.</span></span></span></span></span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span><span><span><span><span>“Self-Advocacy Skills for Your Child: Learn Tips from a Panel of Experts” will be held on Tuesday, May 24, from 7-8:30 p.m. at the Mercy College Rotunda in Dobbs Ferry.</span></span></span><span><span> The event will also be livestreamed for participants who prefer to attend remotely. Pre-registration is required to attend either in-person or on Zoom.  </span></span></span></span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span><span><span><span><span>For more than a decade, Mercy College has collaborated with Rivertown Parents in hosting and developing programs on topics of interest to parents and teachers in the five districts. “Our objective is to equip parents with ways to support their school-age children in learning skills that will help them thrive in school, work and life,” said Dr. JungKang Miller, associate professor and chair of the Department of Literacy and Multilingual Studies, who helped organize the event. “While it may be easier for parents to intervene on their child’s behalf, it doesn’t help the child develop independence and self-advocacy.” </span></span></span></span></span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span><span><span><span>Moderating the panel will be Dr. Victoria Núñez, assistant professor of literacy and multilingual studies at Mercy College. The panelists are: </span></span></span></span></span></span></p> <ul> <li><span><span><span><span><span>Dr. Cynthia Walley, chair of the Mercy College Counseling Department and Program director of the master’s program in school counseling</span></span></span></span></span></li> <li><span><span><span><span><span>Michelleann DeFilippis, MEd ’20, assistant principal at Irvington High School and an alumna of Mercy’s Educational Leadership and Administration program </span></span></span></span></span></li> <li><span><span><span><span><span>Dr. Jeff Cohen, director of the master’s program in school psychology at Mercy and former school psychologist with the Ardsley School District</span></span></span></span></span></li> </ul> <p><span><span><span><span><span>The panelists will present briefly on their respective areas of expertise and will field questions from the audience. Participants are encouraged to submit questions in advance to help shape the direction of the discussion.

In the fall, she worked in Mercy’s COVID-19 testing center and has supported the Health and Wellness Center in other ways this spring. “The Mavies reinforces the idea that we’re really united as a community here at Mercy,” she said. “Everyone knows their classmates and their neighbors, and <span>we all care about each other.”</span></span></span></p> <p><span><span>“Students, faculty and staff

Rochelle, New York on a May 5, raised $450,000<strong> </strong>to benefit student scholarships. Attendees to the gala included community leaders, as well as Mercy trustees, students, Mercy and CNR alumni, faculty and staff, and friends who gathered in person and virtually to celebrate the evening’s honorees and the achievements of Mercy students.</span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>During the gala, Mercy honored <strong>Dorothy M. Cali Balancio ’68, Ph.D.,</strong> an educator, author and conflict mediation expert, with the Lifetime Achievement Award. The CNR Legacy Award was awarded to <strong>Rosa J. Napoleone CNR SAS ’75,</strong> a former information technology professional who co-chairs Mercy’s CNR Legacy Council, and <strong>Deandre Davis ’22,</strong> a student in the Mercy Scholars Program, was awarded the Student Achievement Award. </span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>The Mercy Scholars Program was recognized during the gala for its success in giving students the opportunity of a college education with limited to no debt. Established in 2016 by Robert and Kate Niehaus and James and Marsha McCormick, the Mercy Scholars Program helps close the financial gap for high-achieving students with strong financial need. </span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>Mercy College President Tim Hall welcomed guests to the gala, pleased to see the Mercy College community gathered in person for the annual event after two years of remote events due to the pandemic. “Mercy College is a laboratory of success,” said Hall. “If you give students opportunities and give them the right help and support, they soar. That’s what I’ve learned, and seen happen, at Mercy College.”</span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>Student Achievement Award recipient Deandre Davis shared his gratitude and attributed Mercy College and the Mercy Scholars Program, and his mother Diane, in helping him flourish and fulfill his dreams of achieving a college degree. After graduation, Davis will be helping future generations of Mercy students as a Brooklyn admissions recruiter at Mercy’s Manhattan Campus, as well as pursuing his Master of Business Administration at Mercy.</span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>Joe Gantz, chairman of Mercy College’s Board of Trustees, praised the evening’s honorees and Mercy students on behalf of the board.  “I want to congratulate the honorees and give special recognition to those who funded the Mercy Scholars Program,” said Gantz. He also lauded Mercy staff and faculty for the unwavering support they give to students. “Mercy is dedicated to ensuring students get the support they need. As we all know it takes a village.”</span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>To watch the event, <a href="https://app.mobilecause.com/e/34jalw?vid=rw2ak" class="link--new-tab" rel="noopener" target="_blank">click here</a>. </span></span></span></p></div> Mon, 09 May 2022 13:34:05 +0000 jepsteinhoellger@mercy.edu 3941 at https://www.mercy.edu
