Monday Morning Update

June 4, 2018


ALUMNI RETURN: Celebrating Reunion, more than 900 alumni from 26 classes and their families returned to campus for a weekend of events and receptions. Big congrats to the Class of 1968 on their 50th anniversary and induction into the Pillar Society. Check out reunion highlights here.  

INCUBATION, INNOVATION: How can the College leverage the global digital revolution to strengthen its core values: critical thinking, student-centered instruction, and mission-driven learning? This year’s Stonehill Faculty Focus explores that question and looks at how our Digital Innovation Lab is taking learning to new levels. We have 10 copies. Email us for yours!

LOVING SERVICE: Before more than 600 neighbors and friends on Thursday evening, Fr. John Denning, C.S.C. presented My Brother’s Keeper with the President’s Award for Excellence in recognition of the Christian ministry’s loving service to neighbors in need and for how Stonehill students are transformed by their volunteer experiences at MBK. See photos here!

JOURNEY OF COMPASSION: In accepting the award, MBK co-founder James Orcutt noted how the College’s social justice tradition has helped MBK over the years, including 2,000 Stonehill student volunteers, usable furniture, fresh vegetables from The Farm, training from the Center for Nonprofit Management, and more. Read his remarks!

GIFT GIVING: This year, alumni came together to raise more than $400,000 as a Reunion gift! Upon receiving the gift from class agent and reunion committee member Ken Michel ’68, Fr. John Denning, C.S.C. thanked alums for their loyalty and generosity, adding that their support, “makes Stonehill’s educational mission stronger and more impactful for students.”
