Message from the President After two years as President of East Stroudsburg University, I continue to be impressed by the ongoing dedication and expertise with which faculty and staff commit to their craft and professions. This work is supported by the numerous grants, which faculty and staff have sought, and the university has leveraged, to further our mission and goal to be the number one university in the PASSHE system. Our faculty are varied in focus, fascinating and curious. They ask tough questions that can only be answered through inquiry and dedicated focus. In my time at ESU, I have had the pleasure to get to know our faculty more deeply, and to learn more about their passion for knowledge. I have learned about Professor Jennifer White’s winning the Darbaker Prize for her research using microscopic techniques in biological research, and about Professors Steve Godin and Alberto Cardelle’s project in partnership with The Commonwealth Medical College offering a joint master’s degree in public health. I have also learned about our staff’s dedication to their profession, such as Alyson Patascher’s grant-funded programming in the Office of Student Affairs to reduce dangerous and underage drinking on our ESU campus. We are embarking on a great journey together: improving, looking forward, and re-inventing ourselves. Let us continue on the road of research and inquiry, and let us seek the great opportunities that exist and bring them forth to ESU. A vibrant and expanding research environment will enrich the entire ESU community by sharing knowledge through lectures, presentations, publishing articles, and engaging opportunities for collaboration. By working together, we can expand our focus on inquiry and research: the ESU Strategic Plan states clearly that East Stroudsburg University will be a catalyst for innovation and prosperity, a message that is at the core of the sponsored projects and research mandate. Let us consider prosperity not only in terms of financial gain, but also in terms of how we can nurture our ability to wonder and to engage our students in creative research opportunities. Congratulations and thank you to our faculty and staff for your hard work and dedication to East Stroudsburg University. Sincerely,

Marcia G. Welsh, Ph.D. President

Message from the Vice President for Economic Development and Research Support The theme for external grants for fiscal year 2012-2013 is East Stroudsburg University: A Catalyst for Innovation and Prosperity through Research. The theme echoes the opportunities embraced by faculty and staff, as together, we secured $1.98 million in funded grants and research. It was a year of innovation and collaboration. Efforts by the Art Department to develop a 3D Advanced Manufacturing Lab were supported by a $220,253 gift from the Hayes Warner Trust. Hayes Warner was a 1937 graduate of then-East Stroudsburg State Teachers College who went on to earn her Master of Fine Arts from Columbia University Teachers College. The Lab will introduce faculty, students and businesses to the innovative world of 3D design, printing and rapid prototyping. Collaboration with The Commonwealth Medical College (TCMC) led to a multi-year federal grant from the Health Resources and Service Administration to develop dual degree programs between East Stroudsburg University’s Department of Health Studies and TCMC. ESU’s Research and Economic Development division partnered with the Scranton Lackawanna Industrial Building Company on a Regional Bioscience grant that focused on attracting life science companies to Northeastern Pennsylvania, and with the Great Valley Technology Institute to promote entrepreneurship across the colleges and student internship and externship experiences. These entrepreneurial activities are preparing students for challenging and innovative careers. A generous gift from Sanofi Pasteur supported the purchase of equipment for the Biological Sciences Department, while support from the ESSA Bank & Trust Foundation allowed the university to expand its Sterling Strauser Gallery art collection. As you will read in this year’s Funding Year in Review, ESU faculty, students and staff continue to participate in research activity that is on the cutting edge of new discoveries. As we explored these exciting possibilities, we were also rebuilding our Office of Sponsored Projects and Research team. Christina McDonald joined ESU as the manager of the Office of Sponsored Projects and Research in January 2014. Please contact her for grant assistance. Congratulations to our faculty, students and staff whose scholarly efforts are reflected in this publication. We appreciate and applaud your commitment to innovation and prosperity through research. Sincerely,

EPCs are described as “repair cells”, which are strongly associated with tissue repair that can replace dysfunctional endothelia during either moderate or dramatic systemic inflammatory changes, such as vascular trauma during high intensity exercise. Different intensity levels and duration of exercise have the potential to change EPC numbers, yet little is known about the influence of structured, high intensity interval training (HIIT) programs in healthy individuals. In this study, each participant underwent quasi-experimental, high intensity interval training, with serum samples collected before and after training sessions, and with different recovery times (0 minutes, 30 minutes, and 120 minutes respectively) in order to test HIT’s influence on EPC levels.

Laurene Clossey College of Arts and Sciences | Sociology, Social Work, & Criminal Justice The Work Experience of Certified Peer Specialist (CPS) in Mental Health Amount Awarded: $2,893 Overview: The Mental Health Recovery Movement has been changing the nature of mental health care over the last twenty years to be more consumerdriven. An integral aspect of the promotion of recovery has been the utilization of mentally ill consumers to provide services to each other. These workers are known as Certified Peer Specialists (CPS). There has been resistance in the mental health field to the idea of empowering and hiring consumers. Knowledge about CPS work experience has been limited to survey research using forced choice questionnaires with small samples. This research sought to fill a knowledge gap about the CPS work experience by using a qualitative approach to explore whether CPS workers perceive any discrimination or stigma in the context of the work they provide in the field of mental health.

Darlene Farris-LaBar College of Arts and Sciences | Art Sculptures as Miniature Landscapes: A Three-Dimensional Field Guide to Various Native Plants of the Pocono Region Amount Awarded: $6,891 Overview: This project consisted of a series of works of art that promoted the awareness and education of protected lands throughout the Poconos. Indigenous plants of the Poconos served as the focal point. The plants were scanned and printed in an exact three-dimensional mode as they appear in their natural state. The three-dimensional replicas of the plants were realistically painted and included as part of miniature landscape-like sculptures. The majority of the work involved scanning, printing, painting and building the sculptures during the summer and fall of 2013. An exhibition in the Madelon Power Gallery, in September 2014, will display the sculptures. It is hoped that the sculptures will be used to inspire and teach about the natural environment.

The arias will be sung by James Maroney accompanied by a chamber orchestra of professional musicians, interspersed with lecture and written information that discusses each aria’s musical traits as well as its function within the larger framework of the entire opera. Information will also be provided on the historical background of George Frideric Handel and John Beard, as well as the history and plot synopsis of each opera. Also intended for discussion will be the specific character role assigned to John Beard in each opera and an overall assessment of his vocal and musical capabilities as suggested by George Frideric Handel’s music. The lecturerecital will be presented at East Stroudsburg University in October of 2014.

Terry Master College of Arts and Sciences | Biological Sciences Riparian Birds as Indicators of Climate Change Amount Awarded: $5,565 Overview: Birds are at the forefront of use as bio-indicators of climate change with many species showing range shifts and changes in the time of breeding activities as a result of warming temperatures. The Louisiana Waterthrush has a proven record as a bio-indicator of other human impacts on their environment. Together with the Northern Waterthrush, which has not been investigated for its bioindicator potential, both species cover a wide range of aquatic habitats in Pennsylvania from high elevation bogs to both fast and slow moving headwater streams at all elevations. This project sought to determine the effectiveness of waterthrushes as barometers of climate change by using distribution, foraging and reproductive metrics to investigate responses that may have already occurred due to the climate change. The project also intended to establish baseline relationships between environmental and bird variables for continuing graduate-student-based studies of the effect of warming temperatures on aquatic ecosystems.

College of Arts and Sciences | Biological Sciences Increasing Our Systematic Knowledge of North American Telamonini Treehoppers: Collection and Analysis of Immatures and the Exploration of Morphological Fine Structure Using Scanning Electron Microscope Amount awarded: $5,535 Overview: Documenting and classifying the world’s biodiversity has become an urgent priority for biologists due to the threat of worldwide habitat loss. Classifying many insect species, however, is challenging due to the lack of reliable morphological characteristics, thus hampering biological studies. Treehoppers are herbivorous insects admired for their unusual shapes and behaviors. Like many insects, a portion of their life is spent in a wingless feeding stage known as the immature, nymph. Unfortunately, the biology and morphology of many treehopper nymphs are poorly documented due to their scarcity in nature and in museum collections. Based on examples in the literature, nymphs may contain a wealth of anatomical data useful for identifying and defining the treehoppers, thereby substantially increasing our taxonomic knowledge. Another potential untapped source of morphological data is the microscopic fine structure of the adult external body surface. These features can only be studied effectively using scanning electron microscopy (SEM). This project involved field collecting and visits to collections to acquire immature specimens. Comparative morphological analyses of these nymphs and adult fine features using the SEM should reveal morphological characteristics that can be used to improve the definitions of Telamonini taxa.

Matthew Wallace

Douglas Lare, Michael Gray, Alison Rutter College of Education | Professional and Secondary Education Learning to Dig: A Collaborative Archeological Outreach Project Amount awarded: $6,989 Overview: Social Studies is suffering a perfect storm of neglect in many Pennsylvania elementary schools. As one of the last subjects not to be subjected to state standardized tests, its teaching is limited, often by-passed in favor of those subjects that are tested. Similarly, many schools under financial duress have limited their field trips to museums, an alternative source of knowledge. In low socio-economic areas such as Allentown, families lack the awareness and ability to take their children to museums independently. Given this, students arriving in middle school can have a limited understanding of history, geography, economy, and government— and the importance of these subjects to their lives. To help these adolescents develop a thirst for their sense of place and history that will foster their responsible involvement in society, this project connects the museum, university, middle school, students, and the community through an authentic learning experience— an archeological dig at the Governor Wolf homestead in Bath, Pa.
