Message from the President From 2002 to 2006, the College of Saint Elizabeth embarked on a dramatic voyage, guided by a Strategic Planning Document that called us to envision the future, focus on the journey, and move forward with determination and joy. Along the way, we conducted careful reviews of our academic and student life programs, evaluated our facilities and policies, and set ambitious goals in enrollment and fundraising.The progress we made was breathtaking. Seen from the vantage point of June 30, 2007, the end of fiscal year 2006-2007, the long road behind us was studded with stellar achievements: renovated spaces such as Rose Dining Room, refined focus on student wellness with new services and offices, accelerated and distant delivery systems for existing and new degree programs, wireless access throughout the campus, reaffirmation of accreditation with the highest of commendations from our accrediting agency, a highly successful Capital campaign leading to the groundbreaking and construction of a beautiful new campus building that takes our College to an entirely new level. From time to time, it is my privilege to present you with the President’s Report – a snapshot of the significant developments and the financial health of our College over the past several months. As I gather my thoughts for this 2006-2007 President’s Report, I examine all that has been done to date, and see a nearly limitless horizon before us. Ten years ago, few would have predicted a totally wireless campus with more than 2,000 students enrolled (25 percent at off-campus sites), nine master’s degree programs and a fully subscribed doctoral program, vibrant visits by renowned poets, musicians and artists, state-ofthe art fitness facilities, and, of course, the jewel in the crown: our beautiful and bustling new Annunciation Center. We have to keep asking, “What's next?” especially as we engage in the process of putting together the Strategic Plan for 2007-2012. We also have to ask what makes this all possible. As the Sisters of Charity have always believed, “Providence can provide, Providence did provide, Providence will provide.” Providence provides through people – people like our generous contributors whose faithful financial support helps underwrite the work we do, and people like those students, faculty and administrators you will meet in these pages. I am so proud of all the members of this community of learning who come here every day, passionately alive with what the College is all about, dedicated to our mission and joyful in sparking the teachinglearning experience that is the heart of what we do.To all these remarkable people, I say thank you! May you – and our College of Saint Elizabeth – go from strength to strength! Peace,
Sister Francis Raftery President

Stephanie Kirby’s, ’08, passion for social justice and politics led her to Capitol Hill as an intern at the White House Commission on Remembrance and at the William Penn House in Washington, D.C. This CSE psychology major with minors in women’s studies and justice studies spent her summer welcoming visitors and educating others how to honor American heroes. As Ceremony Coordinator for The White House Commission on Remembrance, this CSE Student Government Association (SGA) President, spearheaded a grassroots program, The United Remembrance Network for Higher Education. Stephanie reached out to 300 student government presidents around the country to inform them how to promote on campus, the National Moment of Remembrance: at 3 pm on Memorial Day, Americans are asked to pause as a way to honor all those who have died in service to their country and the families they left behind. According to her supervisor, Charlene Reynolds, Chief of Staff, White House Commission on Remembrance, “Stephanie was a fantastic intern who contributed a great deal. Her SGA experience gave Stephanie the knowledge of what was feasible and what was not when she was reaching out to fellow student body leaders. She took initiative, was prompt, if not early, conscious and detailoriented. She was an active participant in congressional meetings, planning tributes and amenable to last minute schedule changes.” Stephanie used her professional leadership skills and adaptability during the “Time of Remembrance” tribute held at the Washington Monument when she was assigned to escort World Bank President Paul Wolfowitz to the ceremony moments before his arrival. Ms. Reynolds recalled, “as soon as his car door opened, Stephanie stepped right up and confidently shook Mr. Wolfowitz’s hand.” Aiding in the mission of Moment had personal meaning to Stephanie as she remembered her own fallen hero, her grandfather Joe Trombino, who was a Korean War veteran. Stephanie said, “When I remember America’s fallen, I not only think of those who have fought for our freedoms I think of my grandfather who passed away in the terrorist 2

attacks on September 11th. The Moment has significance to me because when citizens across the nation pause to remember our fallen, my grandfather is being remembered.” While in Washington, Stephanie observed Congressional Hearings, State Department briefings and meetings with Legislative Assistants of more than 20 Senators. She spoke with several influential leaders on Capitol Hill including Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Chief of Staff of the United States Army General George Casey, Jr., among others. Coinciding with her internship at the Commission, Stephanie interned and lived at the William Penn House, a hospitality center in Washington, D.C., that is rooted and grounded in Quaker faith and practice of peace, community, simplicity, equality and truth. Most of the guests at the William Penn House were in Washington for social justice issues. “I was able to discuss current social justice and peace-keeping issues with individuals from all over the world. I lived and worked with such wonderful people and could not have asked for anything better. My time at the Penn House was nothing short of a blessing,” recalled Stephanie.

Prior to her internships, Stephanie participated in several social justice initiatives sponsored by the College, including working to eradicate genocide and religious intolerance, building houses for those in need and delivering food to homebound individuals. She said, “CSE provided me with many opportunities to participate in programs that extend learning into the real world. The education I received at CSE when paired with my
outside experience in politics and social justice provides me with a solid foundation from which to pursue a career or attend graduate or law school. Working on Capitol Hill was one of the most amazing experiences I have had. I view the world completely differently. I am a stronger more confident woman determined to make a difference in the world,” exclaimed Stephanie.

They come from countries that are among the poorest in the world. Sister Charity Kaloto, ’08 is from Zambia, where the annual per capita income is $490. Sister Mary Prisca Nwogu, ’06 and Sister Romana Uzodimma, ’08 are from Nigeria, where two-thirds of the population lives below the poverty line of $1 a day. They are the daughters of relative privilege. Their parents were able to afford to pay fees in nations where no schools are free. But they are also caring daughters of their people. Each of them, while still in her teens, elected to join a religious community devoted to helping the sick and the poor, the children and families of their countries.

They have come more than 5,000 miles from home for the training they need to cope with the enormous challenges facing their homelands. And they are finding it through a collaborative program of CSE and the Sisters of Charity. Together, they are making it possible for these special students to receive the education that is beyond the financial means of their hard-pressed congregations. Sister Barbara Aires of the Sisters of Charity said the program is one of many sponsored by religious communities about the country to help their sisters in Africa cope with the massive problems they face. Its intent: to provide them with theological instruction and the education they need to qualify for their ministries - in education, health care or social services. “Instead of going to Africa,” she said, “we are bringing our African sisters here.” Under the program, said its admissions advisor Sister Gabriel Mary Donahue, six sisters are enrolled each year. The College covers tuition; the Sisters of Charity provide room and board. All of the incoming students have completed secondary school and some have taken college-level classes. Most are in their 30s and have experience in their chosen fields. A number not only earn a bachelor’s degree but go on to graduate work. 4
When she arrived in 2001, Sister Charity, a member of the Sisters of St. John the Baptist, had already completed a two-
year program in science education and had taught in her congregation’s schools. Therefore, she majored in education and psychology and went on to work toward a master’s degree in counseling and psychology. Her goal, when she returns to Zambia in 2008, is to work with children and youth, particularly the growing number of orphans in her country. The AIDS epidemic has decimated families, leaving more than 710,000 youngsters without parents and in need of education, emotional support and spiritual guidance. What she has learned will help her to help them. Sister Romana taught in the Cameroons before she came to the United States in 2002. But at CSE, she studied business administration, followed by graduate courses in health care management. Her congregation, the Handmaids of the Holy Child Jesus, operates not only schools but hospitals - a pressing need in a nation ranked second in the number of AIDS patients.There is also a need, she said, for people who are prepared to run them.

Sister Mary Prisca, a member of the Daughters of Mary, Mother of Mercy, was already in the United States when she was selected for the program in 1999. For five years, she had worked as a nurse with a Nigerian immigrant community in California. At CSE, she continued her health care training, earning a bachelor’s degree in nursing and in 2006 a master’s degree in health care management. For the past two years, she has lived and worked in Newark while she serves her congregation in another capacity. Twice, she has been elected Zonal Superior, overseeing the work of 59 Sisters. She will remain here until her term ends in 2009. When they return, the sisters will take with them not only their degrees, but warm memories of students and professors who befriended them. For Sister Charity, the welcome she received helped overcome her homesickness. “People treated me like family,” she said, “as if I belonged.” Sister Mary Prisca is grateful for the education she is
receiving at the College, and she looks forward to using her education and experiences back home in Africa. “I will incorporate into my practice the legacy of the Sisters of Charity.” For Sister Romana, who will receive her master’s degree in May, the experience at CSE has been life-changing. “No one can receive an education and remain the same,” she said. “It touches our minds and our hearts.” It is a gift she promises to share. “When Saint Elizabeth’s educated me, it educated my whole congregation and my whole community,” she said. “I will give to others what I have learned.” Seven religious groups send Sisters to the College of Saint Elizabeth to further their education. These groups include Sisters of Saint John the Baptist, Handmaids of the Holy Child Jesus, Daughters of Mary, Mother of Mercy, Little Sisters of St. Francis of Assisi, Nazareth Sisters of the Annunciation, Sisters of St.Therese, and Thu Thiem Congregation of the Lovers of the Holy Cross.

While most people her age are preparing for retirement, Sister Irma Kessler is preparing new and exciting ways to study the tiniest of living organisms in her biology classroom. While most people feel that the advent of technology has removed the personal touch, Sister Irma stays in constant contact with her students using the technology so familiar to this generation. Sister Irma is clearly not “most people.” Having much more than a passing knowledge in both the biological sciences and technology, she has brought technology into her classroom to increase experiential learning for her students. She teaches the upper level courses including histology and physiology as well as a freshman bio course. Understanding that today’s student is technologically savvy, Sister Irma has arranged for exams to be taken online with a program that provides instant feedback and allows her to follow students’ progress simultaneously. Her lectures become podcasts that can be downloaded to iPods. Instead of the traditional term paper, Sister Irma requires her students to videotape themselves conducting an experiment to illustrate their knowledge of the subject and the lab equipment. Her students are to read about science in the press and keep a scrapbook of their findings. One of her students wrote to her years later saying that, as a result of this assignment, she faithfully reads the science section of The New York Times to this day. By blending technology with the biological sciences, CSE students are receiving a competitive education that allows them to move into the marketplace well prepared for what comes next. One of her students, who is now in medical 6

school, reported that Sister Irma’s experiential methods are on par with medical school curricula. Her students have a personal pronoun in front of their names, as in “my Sara” or “my Christine.” Here is her true passion; not just teaching, but establishing a deep personal relationship with each student. They stay in touch - through email and blogs, of course - to keep her informed of their successes. She is immensely proud of their accomplishments and the people they have become. An email from her student, Jill McCaffrey states, “Sister - thanks so much for your tolerance with this non-science person! I appreciate your passion for science and its role in our lives.” And from former student, Christine Macchia, “I am studying to become a biology teacher, and if I can have the same affect on my students as Sister Irma had on me, to instill in them a sense of how awesome biology really is, I would consider that a great success.”

So what does Sister Irma do in her precious spare time? She has a general operator's license for her ham radio and chats with people all over the world. A ham antenna sits on the roof of the convent, and she has a ham radio in her car. Ray Kotkoski, a former Radio Shack worker, and Sister Irma will chat when he’s on the road. “She makes my drive feel much shorter as we simply chat about the weather or new technology. It is always a treat
to hear her sign on.” There is so much more to Sister Irma. She has travelled the globe, serves on the College’s technology committee, handles the finances for the Sisters of Charity on campus, and is an avid photographer. Her FCC - assigned call letters to operate her ham radio are KC2MFL - her fellow “hams” simply call her Mighty Fine Lady. Yes, indeed.

Throughout 28 years of marriage, Linda and William (Bill) Hunter have literally and figuratively been growing and learning together as a couple.They have turned their passion for education, health care and organic farming into improving their own quality of life as well as that of others. Both have firmly established their professional roots in the field of education. Bill, a biologist, has been a professor for over 30 years at the County College of Morris, where he teaches Anatomy and Physiology and Biomedical Ethics. Linda, a registered nurse, is Director of Graduate Program in Health Care Management (HCM) and instructor at the College of Saint Elizabeth.
Top: Linda Hunter, Director of Graduate Program in Health Management, leads a class discussion on heath care systems. Middle and Bottom: Linda and her husband Bill run a 30-acre organic farm called Corner Pond Farm where they have raised cattle and other animals since 1979.
Linda assumed responsibility for growing the fledgling master’s degree program into a solid and productive academic offering in 2001. This program prepares students for leadership positions for the ever-changing health care environment by emphasizing ethical, interpersonal, critical thinking, and business management skills. “HCM students are motivated and approach learning with a genuine desire to make a difference,” said Linda. “I am truly privileged to be surrounded by such compassionate, intelligent, and dedicated students.” Program graduates hold leadership positions in hospitals, pharmaceutical companies, home health agencies, health insurance companies, long-term care facilities, medical group practices, and mental health agencies. The program runs on both campus and offsite at Trinitas Hospital in Elizabeth, St. Joseph’s Healthcare System in Paterson, Saint Clare's Health System in Denville/Dover and Valley Health Systems in Ridgewood. Alyssa Adonis, who received her M.S. in Health Care Management in 2006, is manager of Operations/Quality Improvement for Saint Clare’s Hospital-Denville, N.J. She considers Linda her mentor and model. “Linda helped me through a personal tragedy during my last semester of grad school and encouraged me to continue my education when I thought about dropping out. I really admire Linda and will always go to her for professional as well as personal advice.” In addition to teaching, Bill and Linda’s mutual interest in health care and education, led them to pursue together a Doctorate 8
in Medical Humanities at Drew University. “We are now both ABD, (all but dissertation) and are furiously working on our dissertations. And, yes, we have managed to remain happily married through all the stresses and strains of pursuing this advanced degree in unison!” mused Linda. Dr. Laura Winters, professor of English at CSE and adjunct associate professor of English at Drew University, had Linda and Bill as students in two film courses at Drew. She observed, “Their hard work, intelligence, wit and compassion distinguished them from other students. Although the degree is about understanding medicine, they are very interested in ‘how’ they are going to apply that. Their dissertations promise to be real contributions to humanistic health care.” Over the years, Linda and Bill have worked collectively to turn ideas into reality. In 1979, they wanted to produce wholesome

food for their family so they purchased 30 acres of land, built a house, barns, put up fencing, dug ponds and officially became organic farmers of Corner Pond Farm.
instead of being institutionalized,” said Linda. When the company was sold in 1998, it had six offices throughout New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
Linda fondly recalls, “We really had some adventures including when the goats ate all the bark off the trees in the orchard, the time we bought a milking machine - for one cow - and the meaning of a pig sty when we let the pigs root in the front yard after we harvested the garden. We couldn’t open our windows for weeks!”
Linda and Bill consider their strong marriage and children their greatest accomplishment. Their son Lachlan is a Ph.D. professor at the University of South Florida. He specializes in Irish and Native American literature, and his first book is scheduled to be published later this year. Their daughter Kate is the Director of Career Services and Internships at DeSales University.
In 1982, their interest turned to the blossoming home health care industry and they established Nursing Service Associates, a private duty home health agency that supplied health care personnel such as RNs, LPNs, Home Health Aides, and Companions. “During the years that we had NSA, it was our privilege to serve many people in need of health care services. It allowed us the opportunity to help them insure their quality of life by remaining in the familiar surroundings of their home
“Everyone’s life is a challenge of priorities. I have been most fortunate to have my husband as my companion, and my children as my other gifts on this life journey. We do together what we could never accomplish alone,” said Linda. With Bill’s support, the HCM program Linda directs will celebrate its 10th anniversary in 2008, a tribute to her leadership and dedication, and a shining success for the College of Saint Elizabeth.
Capital Campaign Update
The dedication of Annunciation Center on September 8, 2007, was a spectacularly joyous culmination of nearly five years of Capital Campaign work. More than 600 persons attended the blessing ceremony on a sweltering Saturday afternoon. Some huddled under golf umbrellas for shade. Others watched from inside the new building, enjoying the air conditioning and the view. Bishop Arthur J. Serratelli of Paterson blessed the cornerstone; Paterson Bishop Emeritus Frank J. Rodimer blessed a framed College mission statement for the building; and Sister Maureen Shaughnessy, General Superior of the Sisters of Charity of Saint Elizabeth and Chair of the College's Board of Trustees, blessed a six-foot,Vermont granite replica of the College's seal in the

entry walkway. College President Sister Francis Raftery cut the yellow ribbon, accompanied by Campaign Chairs Thomas and Beth Renyi, ’69, other trustees and project leaders. It was indeed a day, as bright blue banners along the spacious walkway proclaimed, to “Let your hearts sing, let your dreams dance, let your spirit soar!” The College’s new arts and education center was completed on schedule and on budget, thanks to the expert guidance of Jim Gerrish, Assistant to the Vice President for Administration and Finance, who managed the project for the College. Designed by NK Architects of Morristown and built by Natoli Construction Company, the $17 million building comprises 44,000 square feet, two and a half levels, and includes a 560-seat theatre, art gallery, computer lab, music and art studios, conference rooms, lecture halls, flexible classrooms and faculty offices. All are outfitted with state-of-the-art classroom and conference technology, and nearly every room affords views of the surrounding campus and far hills through large tinted glass windows. 10

To bring this dream to reality, the College’s Capital Campaign team, led by Jeanine Hirsch,Vice President for Institutional Advancement, attracted $13 million in major and planned gifts from November 2002 to summer 2007, and was poised to reach its campaign target of $13.5 million by December 2007. Alumnae provided 70 percent of all campaign gifts, and donors to other segments gave outstanding support. The College’s trustees met and exceeded their $1 million target, with 100 percent of trustees participating. The College’s Faculty and Staff Campaign doubled its participation goal and nearly tripled its dollar goal, raising close to $140,000.00.

Class Campaigns attracted gifts of large and small amounts from a broad cross section of alumnae, who may continue to contribute even after the formal close of the campaign, with gifts of bricks, pavers or other donations to the building. A final campaign segment, chaired by former Communications professor Marjorie Feinstein, has raised just over $100,000.00 for the Holocaust Education Resource Center, which has a new home on the Annunciation Center main level.This mini-campaign will extend into 2008 with a segment goal of $500,000.00 for the construction and endowment costs of the new center.The Holocaust Education Resource Center, co-directed by Dr. Harriet Sepinwall and Sister Kathleen Flanagan, was established by the College in 1991 to reduce prejudice and promote respect for diversity.

In Memorium History Professor, Alumna Dr. Barbara Bari, ’60 Dr. Barbara Bari, professor of history at the College of Saint Elizabeth, died December 20, 2006 after a battle with cancer. A wise professor, a gifted coworker and caring friend, Dr. Bari’s passing was a great loss to our community of learning. Dr. Bari was a 1960 graduate of the College and joined the CSE faculty in 1977 serving as History Department Chairperson for several years. She was a Fulbright scholar and was also named the New Jersey Professor of the Year in 1989. Dr. Bari was president of the Global Studies Consortium of New Jersey Colleges and Universities. She was also faculty consultant for the New Jersey Visiting Fellows Program directed by the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation in Princeton.
Sister Marguerite Francis Goodwin, ’41 Sister Marguerite, a member of the College’s faculty from 1949-1989, went home to God on September 27, 2007. She taught statistics and trigonometry during the early years of her career, but primarily was a professor of physics. In 1989, Sister Marguerite accepted a position in the Business Office, and she joined the staff of the Registrar’s Office two years later. Following her retirement from the College in 2002, Sister Marguerite gave volunteer service in the Office of Institutional Advancement. Sister Marguerite received the Kelligar Medal in 1974 and was named Associate Professor Emerita of Physics on April 29, 2003.
In Memorium Sister Hildegarde Marie Mahoney (1912-2007) by Peggy Carroll, ’58 By any measure, Sister Hildegarde Marie Mahoney was a woman of remarkable achievement. Consider these facts: she was a noted scholar, so fluent in Latin she made it seem a living language; she was an educational leader in the state and beyond; a member of the state’s Higher Education Commission for eight years; and president of the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools. She held the highest office in her own religious community, serving as General Superior of the Sisters of Charity for eight years. And she was an advocate for women: vice chair of New Jersey Commission on Women and the first woman to serve as a lector at a Papal Mass. But it is for her role at the College of Saint Elizabeth that she is perhaps best remembered. Saint Elizabeth’s, college and convent, was her home for more than three-quarters of a century – from the time she arrived, a prodigiously bright and petite teen-ager from Massachusetts – until her death at Saint Anne Villa at age 95 on September 9. Sister Hildegarde Marie knew the College well. She was a student (class of ’34), a teacher (of Latin and religion) and in 1952, when she was just 40, she was named the College’s third president. For 19 years, she steered the College through challenging times, including the social, political and academic upheavals of the 60s. Saint Elizabeth’s
not only survived, but thrived. On her watch, the College’s major buildings were constructed – Saint Joseph’s Hall, Henderson Hall, Founders Hall and the Mahoney Library, named in her honor. And for the first time, through its new continuing education program, the College opened its doors to older women and other non-traditional students. Somehow, she found time for other causes she believed in. She led the foundation supporting the canonization of Mother Seton, lobbied for the first state-supported college scholarships, joined the fight against making the Great Swamp into the Jersey Jetport. Along the way, she was awarded seven honorary doctoral degrees and the papal (Pro Ecclesia et Pontifice.) Not that she was without flaws. Blessed with an incisive intellect and encyclopedic memory, she loved to share her learning.Which was why, she told friends, her small nephew refused to ask her a question.“Aunt Hilly,” he explained, told him more than he wanted to know. Nor was she fond of the New York Yankees… especially when they played her beloved Red Sox. True to her roots, she cheered for her Boston team all through the long, dry years. She would be delighted to know that her faith has finally paid off. With her death, Saint Elizabeth’s has lost a legend. But she left us – all who knew her and loved her – a perfect blueprint of how to use our talents to serve God and our fellow man. Our world is a better place because she was in it. Surely, the Lord delighted in her as much as we, and greeted her in the tongue that she loved – “Bene est, serve bone et fidelis.”*

The Independent College Fund of New Jersey represents all of the state’s fully accredited, privately controlled colleges and universities, except those that are engaged primarily in religious studies. Most gifts are allocated by formula, although a number are designated to specific institutions.
