Art Department’s Dr. Jennifer Noonan Selected To Participated In Special Seminar On Teaching European Art

Jennifer-Noonan-art-classCaldwell, N.J. – Caldwell University is pleased to announce that Art History Professor Jennifer Noonan is one of a select group of faculty members nationwide chosen by the Council of Independent Colleges (CIC) to participate in a special week-long seminar on Teaching Pre-Modern European Art in Context. The seminar on “Sight and Sound in Renaissance and Baroque Europe [c. 1300–1700]” will be hosted by the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, Georgia, June 20–24, 2016. The seminar is designed for full-time faculty members who regularly teach art history at smaller colleges and universities and aims to strengthen the teaching of art history to undergraduates at these institutions.

CIC selected 21 faculty members to participate in the seminar, which is supported by the Samuel H. Kress Foundation. Two eminent scholars will lead the program: Gary Radke, professor emeritus of art history at Syracuse University, and Amanda Winkler, associate professor of music history and cultures at Syracuse.

“Strengthening the teaching of art history at colleges and universities—many of which have limited faculty resources in art history—is critical,” said CIC President Richard Ekman. “The seminar will have significant value for the faculty members who participate, the colleagues with whom they will share their new knowledge, and the students who enroll in their courses.”

The seminar, based at the High Museum, will explore how viewers and listeners experienced art and music in the Renaissance and Baroque periods. Special emphasis will be placed on developing period eyes and ears and on learning to listen to music and view art as people did in Europe c. 1300–1700. Participants will read and discuss scholarly articles and original texts from the period to prepare themselves for direct encounters with European art in the museum and with live and recorded performances of Early Music. The seminar also will explore commonalities and rivalries between the visual arts and music and their practitioners and patrons. Throughout the seminar, participating faculty members will have the opportunity to hone and share educational strategies for visual analysis, conversation, slow looking, and digital interpretation.

Dr. Barbara J. Chesler, vice president for academic affairs, says the university is very excited that Dr. Noonan was chosen to participate in the seminar. “As an art historian, this seminar will provide her the opportunity to understand the specifics of music and its connection to art. She is a strong student-centered educator and I know this will enhance her knowledge and hence the academic experiences of our students.”

PhiKappaPhiCaldwell4

Caldwell, N.J., May 4, 2016 – Caldwell University held its inaugural Phi Kappa Phi induction ceremony on May 3.

Fifty students, faculty, staff and alumni were welcomed into the nation’s oldest and most selective all-discipline collegiate honor society.

Caldwell University President Nancy Blattner said PKP’s motto of ‘“Let the Love of Learning Rule Humanity’ so beautifully complements” Caldwell University’s emphasis on lifelong learning and the pursuit of truth as graduates are called to contribute to a more just society.

The mission of PKP, with its emphasis on academic excellence in all fields and the encouragement of service to others, resonated with her. “Truly the values of PKP and Caldwell University are clearly well matched.”

The first class of initiates at Caldwell “holds a special place” in her heart, she said, recalling her history with PKP, first as a doctoral student, continuing as a charter member, and then as an administrator who started a chapter at her previous institution and now at Caldwell University.

Associate Professor of Biology William Velhagen Jr., Ph.D., president of Caldwell University’s chapter, told the initiates, “We are pleased and proud that each has chosen to become part of a century-old community of scholars and professionals that includes men and women who have distinguished themselves in positions of leadership, and whose careers have been characterized by achievement.”

The installation of the Caldwell chapter comes after a thorough chartering process and approval from the society’s board of directors. To be eligible, an institution must be a regionally accredited four-year college or university with an established reputation for excellence and an expressed commitment to upholding the values of the society.

The university was inducted as a chapter on April 13 at an event on campus attended by the Phi Kappa Phi Society Executive Director Dr. Mary Todd.

“Phi Kappa Phi is pleased to welcome Caldwell University to our growing community of scholars,” said Dr. Todd. “Caldwell’s commitment to excellence is evident in the transformative changes of the past few years and in its determined focus on collaborative learning and community partnerships.”

On April 26, the National Executive Board of Phi Kappa Phi awarded Dr. Blattner Distinguished Membership status in recognition of her extensive service to and unwavering support of the honor society. The university celebrated that honor at the May 3rd ceremony.

Phi Kappa Phi was founded in 1897 under the leadership of Marcus L. Urann, who had a desire to create a different kind of honor society—one that recognized excellence in all academic disciplines. Today, the Society has chapters on more than 300 campuses in the United States and the Philippines and inducts more than 30,000 new members each year. Membership is by invitation only to the top 7.5 percent of juniors and the top 10 percent of seniors and graduate students along with faculty, professional staff and alumni who have achieved scholarly distinction.

More about Phi Kappa Phi

The Society’s mission is “to recognize and promote academic excellence in all fields of higher education and to engage the community of scholars in service to others.” Since its founding, more than 1.25 million members have been initiated. Some of the organization’s more notable members include former President Jimmy Carter, NASA astronaut Wendy Lawrence, novelist David Baldacci and YouTube cofounder Chad Hurley. The society has awarded approximately $15 million since the inception of its awards program in 1932. Today, more than $1 million is awarded each biennium to qualifying students and members through graduate fellowships, undergraduate study- abroad grants, member and chapter awards and grants for local and national literacy initiatives.

Caldwell, N.J., April 26, 2016 – Caldwell University will celebrate its SisterStory Oral History Project at noon Wednesday, May 4, in the reference room in the Jennings Library on campus. The event is free and open to the public.

The Caldwell University SisterStory Oral History Project is part of the national SisterStory campaign aimed at raising awareness about Catholic sisters. Caldwell was founded by the Sisters of St. Dominic of Caldwell.

The event will celebrate six sisters of St. Dominic of Caldwell who are participating in the project and showcase the work they and their student partners have done on the Oral History Project. Attendees will have the opportunity to hear about the student and sister experiences and to see poster presentations, the oral history website and blogs, and the creative student projects.

Caldwell faculty Dr. Marie Mullaney and Professor Rachel Carey and Assistant to the President for Special Projects Dr. Nancy J. Becker have been leading the project and working with the students.

“The stories of Catholic sisters are an integral part of the history of the United States, and the contributions of Caldwell Dominicans are an important part of that legacy,” said Becker. Through the Oral History Project, participating students have gained insight into the lives “of six remarkable women and created an archival record that will help document the impact sisters have had on society,” she said.

Caldwell, N.J., April 7, 2016 – Thanks to the modern technology of Skype, Caldwell University connected overseas with United States Army Colonel. Christopher Doneski ‘ 90 to recognize him with the Veritas Award for Excellence in Military Service.

The Veritas Award is the highest honor Caldwell bestows on graduates for professional excellence.

Colonel Doneski’s mother, Mary Louise Donnelly Doneski ’56, received the Veritas Award for Excellence in Leadership and Service and Eileen Curtis ’68 received the Veritas Award for Excellence in Cultural Programming. Family members and friends of the honorees, along with the Caldwell University community, gathered for a celebratory dinner on April 1 at Essex Fells Country Club.

Colonel Doneski’s brother, Colonel Terrence Doneski (USAF, retired) introduced his brother and his mother before they received their awards.

Colonel Christopher recalled his days at Caldwell, the people who made a difference in his life, and how he learned to be both a good follower and a leader during his college career. “Caldwell (university) will always feel like home,” he said. Mrs. Doneski and Colonel Doneski both remembered fondly their aunt, Sister Marita Donnelly, a Sister of St. Dominic of Caldwell, an inspirational woman, who had an impact on their lives.

Colonel Doneski has 25 years experience in the United States Army and has made a name for himself as a leader, expert observer, coach, and mentor. Currently he is part of the Combined Joint Task Force Operation Inherent Resolve (CJTF-OIR), which is responsible for running counter ISIL operations in Iraq and Syria. In 2015, he was selected to serve as the director of the Armored Warfighting Forum, which was established to enhance the professional and leadership development of the Army’s maneuver warfare community.

Mary Lou Donnelly Doneski ’56 has been a trailblazer for women in the military., She was the first woman to be commissioned as a Naval officer directly from a college or university in New Jersey. As a lieutenant, Mrs. Doneski was assigned to the Office of the Chief of Naval Operations. After that, she continued to serve her country as a military spouse, supporting her husband’s career in the Army. She raised five children through nine family moves and her husband’s two deployments to Vietnam and Korea. She mentored the spouses of junior officers.

Eileen Curtis ’68 was introduced by her husband Marshall Curtis who pointed out that Eileen has won just about every award for her broadcasting work including a Peabody.
She was previous music director at WGMS Radio in Washington D.C. where she enjoyed a career producing cultural documentaries that gained her the Peabody Award and a Silver Medal for the Arts from the Government of Austria. Among the many highlights of her career, she collaborated with pyrotechnic experts to create the music for the fireworks on the Washington Mall that accompanied the return of the Iranian hostages, for which she was thanked by President Ronald Reagan.

Music education student Nicholas Bushey appreciated meeting Curtis. “She took the time to talk to me about where I am in my career and she told stories about her experiences. She was very encouraging to me and her passion for everything that she does was inspiring.”

Sophomore Dennis Brady said it was an honor to be invited to the dinner and be in the presence of successful alums. “I thought it was great to connect with alumni and explain to them my experiences of Caldwell University today.”

Senior Shyam Sharma said the honorees are an inspiration to students. “It was amazing to see how, as an institution, we’ve grown so much over the years, yet the values and foundation of the university remain consistent with our beginnings.”

Marshall Curtis announced the establishment of a Caldwell University scholarship fund in honor of Eileen.

The Doneski family announced the establishment of The Mary Louise Donnelly Doneski Scholarship, which will be awarded annually to a student interested in military or other public service.

Alternative Spring Break Experience Rebuilding in Appalachia

WorkFest2016AlternativeSpringBreak1
workfest 2016 - Justice Baskin
workfest 2016- Jenn Han
worfest 2016 - Charolette Genthe

Caldwell, N.J., April 4, 2016 – For Caldwell University student Cindy Pineros, a highlight of her workweek in Appalachia came when she witnessed a man named Anthony roll out of his house and down a ramp that she had helped to build. “He was so happy and thankful,” said Pineros. She explained that Anthony had not been able to leave his house without assistance since his home had no wheelchair ramp.

Pineros, a nursing and biology student, and six other Caldwell students joined students from other universities March 19 to 25 for the Christian Appalachian Project’s Workfest Alternative spring break program. They helped rebuild homes for low-income families in eastern Kentucky.

Yashant Gywali, a sophomore majoring in computer information systems at Caldwell, helped build a porch for an elderly woman who lived alone. He was happy to be “introduced to new power tools … I was fixing windows, drilling, up on ladders.”

Catie Mulick, also a nursing student at Caldwell, did roofing and put paneling on a family’s house. She was struck most by the way the little girls were proud to show them around even though they had the bare minimum. “They were not embarrassed or ashamed at needing help from college students.”

It was a week of hard work, cold temperatures and a scramble to get a shower. “Waking up at 5:45 or 6, 40 to 50 girls using eight showers,” said Pineros.

The work groups were set up so that each Caldwell student was in a team with students from other colleges, which “forced you out of your comfort zone,” said Pineros. Gywali was happy to make friends from Caldwell and other schools. The pretty hills, mountains and lake reminded him of his beloved Nepal.

Getting used to being away from technology and their phones took a short adjustment, but after that they welcomed the freedom. “It was a nice cleanse … I was upset to get the service back,” said Mulick. “It was such a relief to detach,” said Pineros.

The other Caldwell students who attended were Kevin Fernandez, Charlotte Genthe, Dohee “Jenn” Han and Justice Baskin.

The chaperones were Mason Traino, an admissions counselor, and Patrick Lehosky, an alumnus who attended CAP as a student. The group stayed at Camp AJ in McKee, Kentucky.

Post-graduate student receives New Jersey state teacher award

John-Taylor-NJ-Charter-Teacher

John Taylor, a Caldwell University post-master’s degree student, has been named the New Jersey Charter Schools Association 2016 Teacher of the Year.

Caldwell, N.J., April 4, 2016 – John Taylor, a Caldwell University post-master’s degree student, has been named the New Jersey Charter Schools Association 2016 Teacher of the Year. Taylor is studying in the Education Division at Caldwell in the principal certification program. He expects to complete his internship this spring.

A physical education teacher at Beloved Community Charter School in Jersey City, Taylor says the faculty at Caldwell “are irreplaceable resources for future administrators.” He is grateful to his professors for mentoring him and for sharing their professional experiences during the practicum process. “Caldwell University has prepared me for an administrative position, and due to the guidance I received from my internship supervisor, Mr. Frank DiSessa, I am more confident in my abilities as a future principal.”

Taylor is passionate about physical activity and encouraging young people to live healthy lifestyles. He is the Beloved Community Charter School coordinator for physical activity and self-confidence initiatives, including the Reebok BOKS Kids morning activity program. He says teaching is much more than just being in the classroom. “It’s about teaching students to be passionate about what they are interested in and guiding them through the process of how to act on those passions.” He enjoys educating students about the importance of physical activity and healthy living outside of the school walls. “In what other profession would I get 180 days each year to teach people about ways to lead happier, healthier lives?” He previously starred in the reality show “Too Fat for 15: Fighting Back.” Taylor will be honored at the New Jersey Charter Schools Association conference in Atlantic City on May 26.

Caldwell University’s principal certification program is designed to meet New Jersey’s certification requirements for principal certification for applicants who have a master’s degree in educational administration, a master’s degree in curriculum and instruction or a master’s degree in another recognized field of leadership or management.
