President's Newsletter March 2016


The Office of Alumni and Parent Relations has created a new Leadership Development Series in partnership with School of Graduate and Adult Education. It includes five classes focusing on leadership and communication skills development, designed for Alvernia graduates from the last 10 years. Interest in the program has been strong, with almost all available spaces filled.

The Alvernia Opportunities for Leadership recruitment and selection program attracted more than 220 applications from current position holders and new applicants for approximately 80 key student leadership positions (e.g., Resident Assistants, Peer Mentors, etc.)

Sixty-three Alvernia student-athletes were named to the MAC fall Academic Honor Roll. The honor roll is comprised of student-athletes who compete at the varsity level and registered term/semester GPAs of 3.20 (out of 4.0) or higher. Women’s soccer led the way with 16 honorees.

SGAE re‐energized its partnership with the regional Women2Women organization via a special event featuring Senator Judy Schwank. More events are planned on and off campus.

Forty students participated in alternative spring break experiences in Virginia, Washington, D.C., Reading and Philadelphia. A post-semester experience planned for Tennessee has attracted strong interest as well.
