Pace professors are weighing in on the 2020 election, the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and much more in this month's edition of Fit to Print.
"There are differing definitions for what constitutes a first-generation student. But however you slice it, there are a lot of them. The Center for First-Generation Student Success reports that 56 percent of American colleges have parents who did not earn a bachelor’s degree. Some 24 percent have parents with no post-secondary education at all."
—Pace President Marvin Krislov wrote about First Generation College Day in his Forbes column. He also participated in a Harvard University panel, titled “Innovating on Campus: Supporting Mental Health of Students of Color During COVID-19 and Beyond,” which received coverage in Diverse Issues in Higher Education and The Harvard Gazette.
“Unfortunately, regardless of who wins, there is a large amount of civil unrest on both sides. That is a possibility. What is certain though is that there is going to remain this great deal of polarization.”
—Dyson Assistant Professor Kiku Huckle, PhD, featured in a News12 town hall about the 2020 election.
"With lawyers, we need facts. We need evidence. We need to be able to base our claims on these facts. Now, in Trump world, I guess facts don't matter. All that matters is making these kinds of claims."
—Elisabeth Haub School of Law Professor Bennett Gershman, JD, featured in a News12 video clip about President Trump's legal challenges related to the 2020 election.
CT Insider featured Dyson Associate Professor Katherine Fink, PhD, in an article about Alex Trebek's passing. Fink was a contestant on Jeopardy! in 2018.
“We often hold stress by tightening muscles and often don’t realize we are doing this...the movement aspect relieves clenched muscles and stretches parts of the body that may be tight due to stress.”
—College of Health Professions Associate Dean Beau Anderson, quoted in a Self Magazine article about stress relieving exercises.
"Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination and confirmation to the Supreme Court, both violates our core democratic norms related to judicial legitimacy, and reveals contempt for key components of US equality law on LGBT rights."
—Elisabeth Haub School of Law Professor Darren Rosenblum, JD, published an article in Forbes titled "Amy Coney Barrett, LGBT Rights, and Judicial Legitimacy."
A United States Department of Justice press release highlighted Dyson Professor Kimberly Collica-Cox, PhD, and her innovative Parents, Prisons, and Pups program.
"Unfortunately, many times companies and corporations are compromised and hacked, and it's then after the fact that their data has been breached and compromised, they realize the value of their business and the data."
—Seidenberg Professor Pauline Mosley, PhD, was featured in a Tech Republic interview about data breaches and cybersecurity.
"The effective use of social media is vital to successfully mobilize political resistance. This is particularly true in Hong Kong, Minsk, Bangkok and Lagos, where courageous citizens defy curfews to oppose police brutality and clog busy intersections to bring financial districts to a standstill."
—Dyson Professor Joseph Tse-hei Lee, PhD, published an article in The Tapei Times titled "In Turmoil, Taiwan Offers Change."
Lubin Professor Andrew Coggins, PhD, was presented with a certificate by the ACMF/CANTA Maritime Link up Webinar Series as a token of their appreciation for his service to the development of Caribbean youth in the maritime sector.
“There’s a whole suite of regulatory actions the Trump administration has taken I think of as creating structural stealth impacts.”
—Elisabeth Haub School of Law Distinguished Professor Katrina Kuh, JD, quoted in a CT Mirror article about environmental policy and the 2020 presidential election.
Beta Alpha Psi (BAP) selected Lubin Accounting Professor Steven Mezzio, PhD, as the Outstanding Faculty Advisor for 2020 in his capacity as Faculty Advisor for the Lubin Chapter BAP.
President Krislov shares his resolutions for 2021, and Pace faculty and staff weigh in on a diverse array of topics as they wrap up 2020 and take on the new year.
