Salesian Quote of the Day


The same everlasting Father who cares for you today will care for you tomorrow and every day. Either he will shield you from suffering or give you unfailing strength to bear it. Be at peace then and put aside all anxious thoughts and imaginings. St. Francis de Sales

The spring viewing of Hidden Figures pairs well with the fall viewing of Norma Rae (1979). In both films, “ordinary” women seek to “make” history despite the odds stacked against them.

Faculty: Extra Credit for Diversity Program

To all faculty:

My name is Abria Jackson and I am a Sophomore PACER. Last fall, I did a program for faculty only, on the importance of talking about diversity and inclusion in a classroom setting. This year I am hosting a program just for students and to encourage your students to go to the diversity program, I am in need of your help! Discussions on diversity and inclusion are essential especially in the college setting. It brings about awareness and celebrates the stories of everybody that partakes in the conversation. I am asking if faculty can come together and allow students to receive extra credit for coming to the program. In doing so, this can encourage your students to partake in something that could be life-changing. The program will be held on February 28, 2018 at 7 p.m.

If you are a faculty member that is willing to offer your students extra credit, please email Abria at I will have a specific sign up sheet for the classes and will report back to the professors the names of the students.

If you are a faculty member and cannot give extra credit, I ask that you could still encourage students to come to the program!
