Child Advocacy Center Fundraiser

Do you want to help a child who has suffered from abuse and neglect?  The Physician Assistant Student Society is collecting donations for the Child Advocacy Center in Allentown.  The Child Advocacy Center is a place for children, who suffer from abuse and neglect, to stay as they transition to foster homes. Children being removed from their families are not allowed to take any of their belongings with them.  To help them, we are collecting donations to provide these children with backpacks filled with new belongings that they can call their own.

What to donate:

  • Backpacks
  • School and craft supplies
  • Toys or hobby items (cards, puzzles)
  • Books, magazines, coloring books
  • Toiletries, personal hygiene supplies
  • Stuffed animals
  • DVDs, CDs
Donations will be collected through November 9th in the boxes in Dooling, McShea and the PA building.

ANGEL Transition and Blackboard Open Forum

The DEIT and Academic Technology ad-hoc committee recommendation to adopt Blackboard Learn in AY 2013-14 was approved by the Academic Oversight Committee on October 24, 2012. DEIT will initiate the pilot and migration process in January 2013 and work closely with all departments and academic programs to ensure a smooth transition from ANGEL to Blackboard Learn.

After extended investigations, it seems clear that Blackboard Learn will provide the best options for meeting the needs of DeSales University’s growing distance education audience and for supporting our global learning initiatives and day-to-day administration of academic programs.

If you would like to learn more about Blackboard Learn, please join a Blackboard Open Forum on Monday October 29, 2-3 PM or Wednesday November 7, 2-3 PM in the Air Products Room in Trexler Library and have your questions answered by a Blackboard expert.  Also stay informed by subscribing to DEIT’s Word of Mouse blog at http://blogs.desales.edu/deit/.

The Catholic Church implemented the Protecting God’s Children program to educate and train adults (clergy, religious, teachers, staff, volunteers, and parents) about the dangers of abuse, the warning signs of abuse, the ways to prevent abuse, the methods of properly reporting suspicions of abuse, and responding to allegations of abuse.

All education students are required to provide a certificate of completion for their student file in the Education Department.
