President’s

Message President’s

As I approach the 30th year of my presidency, I am struck by how this past year is much like the very first years of my tenure. Recent national and world events presented us with financial challenges similar to those we faced in the early years, and led to an even stronger focus on identifying efficiencies and making the most of our resources. We spent a significant amount of time and energy balancing the budget, reviewing the numbers, and constantly ascertaining opportunities for improvement. At Holy Family University, many of our students are the first in their families to attend college, and our ability to raise funds for financial aid is vital. At this year’s Scholarship Ball, I had the great privilege of presenting the University’s Corporate Leadership Award to Walter D’Alessio. Walt came from a poor family in Pittsburgh, and he knows what it means to be the first in his family to attend college. The successful Vice Chairman of NorthMarq Capital serves as an inspiration and a role model, and I’m proud to report that the 2010 Scholarship Ball held in his honor raised $309,000 in financial aid for Holy Family University students. It is my hope that we will continue to receive support from our benefactors as we work to raise funding for a multitude of important needs and projects. The entire University community was extremely engaged this past year with the convergence of three major initiatives—strategic planning, the Middle States reaccreditation, and branding. I am extraordinarily proud of the leadership, innovative thinking, and collaboration I witnessed across the Holy Family community during this time of deep reflection and assessment. Together, we drew on our collective experience, wisdom, and creativity as we determined how to ensure the University’s success now and in the future. This work was performed very effectively and with remarkable dedication. The driving force at Holy Family is, and always has been, our mission, which is derived from the mission of the Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth. When I joined the University nearly 30 years ago, the administrative team worked diligently to identify what was most important to this institution, and to define our mission and our core values. Since then, we have worked conscientiously to express this mission in everything we do, every day. And today, what we stand for and believe in is indeed reflected in our academic programs, in student life, and in our relationships with our partners, neighbors, and friends. For this, I am most grateful. May God bless you! Sincerely,

Sister Francesca Onley, CSFN, PhD ’59 University President

Academics

Building on Success Holy Family enjoys an excellent academic reputation. During the past year, the University expanded its offerings considerably, adding several new degree options and developing its first doctoral program. Our growth in academics is a natural evolution as we address the needs and preferences of today’s students and tomorrow’s leaders.

New Offerings The School of Business Administration announced the implementation of a threeyear degree option for highly motivated and qualified undergraduates seeking baccalaureate degrees in the Accounting, Finance, Computer Management Information Systems, International Business, Management-Marketing, and Sport Marketing-Management tracks. This could provide a segue for the development of combined baccalaureategraduate degree programs that employ innovative curricular and delivery models. In May 2010, the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) granted the School of Education provisional approval for our first doctoral program—a Doctor of Education in Educational Leadership and Professional Studies. The program, which will begin with the acceptance of new students in January 2011, targets principals, curriculum directors, and educators with related master’s degrees who seek to move into leadership positions. There will be concentrations in educational administration, literacy, and interdisciplinary professional studies highlighting special education.

”There is a wonderful quote by Giuseppe Tomasi di Lempedusa that reads, ‘If you want things to stay as they are, things will have to change.’ If we want to keep on top of our game at Holy Family, we have to continually adapt our curriculum and our delivery methods to the times. Participating in the Middle States review has made us all even more self-reflective in assessing our effectiveness in producing the desired learning outcomes we’ve established for the students we serve. And this has led to a great deal of positive evolution in our academic offerings.”

certifications. The revisions are the result of PDE mandates requiring extensive review and modification of existing certification programs to better prepare teachers for the learning needs of current and future generations of students. A dual certification in Special Education K-8, combined with Early Childhood K-4, also was developed and is awaiting PDE approval. The Division of Extended Learning, housed at the Woodhaven location in Bensalem, received approval to extend its work to a new location in Quakertown, Pennsylvania. The initial program offered at this site will be the MBA, combining onsite and online offerings in a hybrid format to address the competing personal and professional demands experienced by adult learners. Program changes also were approved in the School of Nursing and Allied Health Professions (SONAHP) with the introduction of a Magnetic Resonance (MR) track to the Radiologic Science program. This track will be offered for the first time in fall 2010 as an option in the BSRS degree and as a certificate program for licensed radiographers. The MR track is one of three BSRS/certificate options developed in response to a need for the additional training of radiographers in post-primary areas of specialization. The two other options are Mammography and Computed Tomography. SONAHP also developed an Introduction to Perioperative Nursing course. Members of the new Nursing Advisory Council, which met for the first time during the 2009-2010 academic year, identified this specialty as an area of educational need. Members of

”The School of Education at Holy Family began by offering teaching certificates. As the program grew, we moved on to offering specialist certificates, then advanced certificates, and then certificates to high school principals. Each step forward has required the successful implementation of the previous step. Our new doctoral program represents a natural progression in our offerings. The schools we serve need more than good teachers, they need good educational leaders. In offering more advanced coursework and a research-based credentialing program at Holy Family, we’re helping to prepare those individuals who will become the educational leaders of the future.”

the Council include academic, clinical, and administrative nursing professionals from a broad range of institutions.

Program Accreditation Following a year of intensive preparation, the School of Nursing and Allied Health Professions completed a successful reaccreditation review of its BSN and MSN programs. Conducted by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education, the review ensures the quality and integrity of the baccalaureate and graduate programs in nursing—building on a model of continuous improvement. Reaffirmation of the BSN and MSN program accreditation is anticipated in October 2010. The School of Business Administration earned

candidacy in the process of seeking accreditation for its baccalaureate and graduate programs through the Association of Collegiate Business Schools and Programs—a leading, specialized accreditation association for business education. The School will undergo a self-study in support of accreditation during the next academic year.

Grants and Partnerships Numerous grants and special contractual agreements were secured in 2009-2010 to support and extend the University’s work. Dr. Ana Catanzaro, MSN Chair, received funding to support student tuition through two grants. One

of these awards, the Nursing Faculty Loan Grant, will finance the education of graduate students who will teach full-time upon degree completion. The second grant, the Nurse Traineeship, provides scholarships to MSN students in the nurse education track. Dr. Roger Gee, Associate Professor in the School of Education, was a recipient of funding from several sources. The first, a minigrant from the Philadelphia Higher Education Network for Neighborhood Development, allows the University to provide senior project mentors and other resources to help ESL students at an area secondary school. The second is an award from the School District of Philadelphia, used to support the University’s

Summer English Language Enrichment Program. Holy Family was also one of six universities chosen through a competitive contract process by the Philadelphia School District for its Master’s Degree Partnership Program. The initiative addresses areas of need and staff development for seasoned teachers at empowerment schools. The District will subsidize this TESOL degree program with tuition for teachers who enroll.

Internationalization Our efforts to build global awareness through both study tours and international exchanges continued at a steady pace throughout the 2009-2010 academic year. In February, Holy Family hosted four undergraduate

”Our curriculum is constantly evolving. We’ve made several significant changes to our strategy and curriculum over the past year, and we’re extremely proud of our student outcomes. The most recent numbers from the national licensing and registration exams show nearly a 92 percent first-time pass rate for the students participating in our BSN program, and a 100 percent pass rate for the students in our ASRS program.”

students and a professor from Universidad Nacional Arturo Prat in Iquique, Chile. During a three-week stay at the University, the students absorbed North American culture and conducted research that allowed them to develop their own text to help Chilean elementary school students learn English. The University enjoys an agreement with Arturo Prat University, which will allow a reciprocal exchange of Holy Family students visiting Chile in the near future. In April, 10 adult students and chaperones embarked on the seventh annual Global Seminar, sponsored by the Division of Extended Learning. The experience extends students’ understanding of international business practices through visits to various multinational corporations headquartered in London. The School of Arts and Sciences offered a study-abroad experience in France to 20 students and faculty chaperones, the culmination of a semesterlong course in French culture and society. For four weeks in June and July, Holy Family hosted nearly 50 foreign high school and college students for an intensive English language program. Fortyfive students from Poland, identified through the ministries of the Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth in Warsaw and Kracow, as well as four undergraduate students and Vice Dean Tan Li Hua from Guizhou University in Guiyang, China, participated in the program. The group lived on campus at the new Stevenson Lane Residence, and participated in a mix of non-credit class work, field trips, cultural activities, and local events designed

to deepen their English language skills. Earlier in the year, Guizhou University’s President, Shuping Chen, PhD, was welcomed to Holy Family during International Friendship Day, featuring a ceremony where Holy Family officials conferred an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters degree on him. Guizhou University is among the universities with which Holy Family enjoys an international exchange agreement.

Scholarship Various programs and undertakings continue to underscore the University’s commitment to scholarship as an essential component of campus life and work. Student scholarship is recognized annually through participation in the SEPCHE Honors Conference. In March, 19 students participated in the conference at Arcadia University, presenting their work in the arts and sciences. In April, two English students attended the 25th National Undergraduate Literature Conference at Weber University in Utah to present their original research. MSN Chair Dr. Ana Catanzaro is the principal investigator of a research study titled “The Effect of a Simulation Experience on Testing Outcomes in PreLicensure Nursing Students.” A pilot of the study was conducted in spring 2010, with additional data collection planned in the near future. Two research conferences also were sponsored by the School of Arts and Sciences during the academic year. The first, “70 Years Later: the Global Impact of the Holocaust,” was a two-


day event conducted at the University in November. In March, Holy Family hosted the second “Perspectives on Creativity” conference, addressing such topics as the nature of creativity; the creative process; and the relationships among creativity, various forms of learning, and mental health. Both conferences featured a roster of internationally and nationally recognized scholars.

Continued Service to Students The University once again was involved in the Veterans’ Yellow Ribbon program, which enrolled 33 participants in 2009-2010. Nine Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) workshops were held for faculty and staff on the importance of safeguarding students’ privacy—an essential and often misunderstood aspect of higher education today. This well-received program will be updated and offered regularly in the future. To better serve students’ needs for timely and complete information regarding academic progress, the Academic Advising Center launched Degree Audit—a technologybased program that allows students and advisors to check the status of degree completion online. In addition, graduates can more easily access transcripts through the implementation of a new electronic transcript service. Efforts to facilitate our understanding of and changes to financial aid regulations and aid availability during these challenging economic times were undertaken by the Financial Aid office through many projects.

acceptances, up by 10 percent, while maintaining a significant improvement in the regularly accepted student SAT scores. To further increase student enrollment, both the Undergraduate and Graduate Admissions Offices have increased and improved recruitment events, implemented a variety of recruitment vehicles, and expanded recruitment territories and venues.

Notable examples include the migration to the Federal Direct Loan Program from the previous Federal Family Education Loan Program (FFELP), and our utilization of the Enrollment & Revenue Management System (ERMS) product to deliver meritbased aid to prospective students. The enrollment of students in private institutions also has been a challenging area during the economic downturn. To address this issue, the admissions staff has worked diligently to increase applications, up by eight percent, and

Celebrating Success Holy Family University celebrated its 53rd

Commencement at the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts in Philadelphia on May 18. The honorary degree of Doctor of Humane Letters was presented to Timothy Flanagan, BA, Founder and Chairman of the Catholic Leadership Institute; John Prendergast, MA, Co-founder of the Enough Project; and Sister Janice Fulmer, CSFN, PhD, Superior General of the Congregation of the Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth. More than 800 students received graduate and undergraduate degrees.

”My experience at Holy Family has completely prepared me for the future. The classes were very demanding, and I know that the hard work I put in— especially in my business courses—will serve me well. I learned about international business, about accounting, about every aspect of how a company works. Through my participation in clubs and activities—especially as a student mentor and as editor of the student newspaper—I developed so many important skills. I learned how to be a leader, how to balance my time, how to work effectively with a team, and most of all, how to go above and beyond to get great results. I discovered so many different things that I’m interested in. As I begin my job search, I know that I’ll find a great job that I will love and can be successful in. Holy Family has given me the confidence to just go for it.”

A Banner Year on Campus The year 2009-2010 was filled with extraordinary experiences that simply cannot be measured in terms of the overall benefit to students. From a significant resurgence in residence life, to a life-changing experience with Habitat for Humanity, the Holy Family community enjoyed the full gamut of events, activities, and campus traditions.

The Resurgence of Residence Life Holy Family is in the midst of a major resurgence in residence life, particularly with the opening of the brand new Stevenson Lane Residence in time for the 2009-10 academic year. Residence life at Holy Family was discontinued in the 1970s when student interest in on-campus living was waning. Renewed interest over the past decade led Holy Family to reinstitute residence life in 2005, as an increasing number of students expressed their desire to participate in the full university experience. The opening of a renovated St. Joseph Hall in 2005 augmented the resident capacity by 107 beds, and the construction of the Garden Residence in 2007 added living space for 44 more. In the fall of 2009, residence life at Holy Family increased by eight percent. Ninety-four students moved into the Sister Patrice Feher, CSFN Wing of the Stevenson Lane Residence. Sister Patrice has served the University’s Student Services program for 40 years, and the wing named in her honor reflects the love and respect she has earned from students, alumni, faculty, and staff over the years.

The Stevenson Lane Residence stands five stories tall, and offers suitestyle living with the most advanced amenities available in contemporary campus housing. The facility features wireless technology, quiet study spaces, a student lounge, and fitness and game rooms. The addition of the Stevenson Lane Residence brings the number of residence halls on campus to three. Combined with 11 duplexes, the University now has a housing capacity of 359 students. In the Campus Center, the Tiger Café underwent a complete renovation over this past year, doubling the space, significantly increasing offerings, and providing a warm and inviting environment for Holy Family students. Among the many additions are a smoothie bar, a cappuccino and espresso bar, a charcoal grill, a vegetarian station, and a pasta station. The Café has become a wonderful place for students to spend time morning, noon, and night.

Engaging our Students As in every year past, the freshman class began its journey at Holy Family University with New Student Orientation—hosted by Academic Affairs and Student Services. Students were introduced to their First-Year College Success mentors, while parents participated in workshops addressing University policies and procedures, student safety, transitional concerns, and more. The theme of this year’s orientation, “Branching Out,” allowed student mentors and faculty to showcase the multitude of clubs, events, and activities

available at Holy Family. Speakers encouraged every student to get involved, and to “make their mark on campus.” The Class of 2013 continued its immersion over the entire academic year through the First-Year College Success program. A significant amount of time was dedicated to communicating the University’s mission and how it affects students, members of society, and citizens across the United States. The 20092010 program featured 18 sections and culminated in several exciting final projects. It is clear that Holy Family University students fully embrace the many opportunities to become involved, demonstrated by the remarkably high rate of student participation across campus. Holy Family is home to 20 honor societies and 15 active clubs and organizations—with the formation of several of these entities driven by students. In 2009-2010, the Drama Club was reestablished and performed its first play. Also new this year was the creation of a student chapter of SHRM—the Society for Human Resource Management. More than 230 students were inducted into honor societies in special ceremonies this year. The Intramural Program continued to grow, with volleyball added to the previous offerings of flag football and basketball. Students at Your Service (SAYS) organized numerous events on campus, including a festival and flea market during Family Weekend, two blood drives, and Community Service Awareness Day, where students could visit with more than 20 nonprofit agencies offering volunteer opportunities.

Additional event highlights enjoyed by students over the course of the year included movie nights, dances, skiing and snowboarding trips, paint ball challenges, bowling, laser tag, dodge ball, Phillies and 76ers games, an excursion to Dorney Park, and more.

Building for the Future In February 2010, a group of 22 students traveled to Spokane, Washington, on a special mission. The students opted to spend their Spring Break working with Habitat for Humanity, a nonprofit organization committed to building safe, affordable homes for people around the world. This marked the fourth year of the Alternative Spring Break Service Trip at Holy Family University, a tradition that began in 2007 when 10 students joined forces with Habitat for Humanity in New Orleans, Louisiana, in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

Spiritual Growth Over the course of the year, Campus Ministry sponsored special liturgies, mini-retreats, and a wide range of service, faith-sharing, and communitybuilding opportunities. Specific initiatives included on-campus “Busy Person’s Retreats,” liturgies and miniretreats for athletic teams and student organizations, a Yom Kippur presentation by Rabbi Jerry Lauderbach, Veterans Day Mass for peace, the Blue Mass for police and fire first responders, Christmas Rose and other specially themed liturgies, on-campus training for student music ministers, lectors, and extraordinary ministers of the Eucharist, and a program of preparation for reception of the sacrament of Confirmation.

”The opening of the Stevenson Lane Residence is certainly symbolic of the revitalization of campus life at Holy Family University. Our students want to spend more time on campus, they want to live on campus, and they want access to more and more activities and evening events. Because we’re practically starting from scratch with on-campus housing, we’re able to provide our students with the latest amenities, like wireless internet, swipe card access, flat screen TVs, and suite-style living that combines privacy with community. And the central location of Stevenson truly has made the entire campus feel more connected. In addition to providing housing for the students who reside there, the multi-purpose lounge on the first floor has quickly become a popular event space for all of our students. We’ve hosted several gatherings there, including viewing parties throughout the past World Series. The entire campus community is really enjoying the building.”

Pro-life initiatives included the observance of “Silent Day” in October, participation by students, faculty, and administrators in the national “March For Life” in Washington, DC, and a bus trip to New York City to attend “Co-Worker Training” offered by the Sisters of Life, founded by John Cardinal O’Connor. After a year of planning and discussion, in the summer the Sisters of Life came to Philadelphia and hosted a special training for Co-Workers in the Education and Technology Center auditorium. Socially, “Pizza with the Padre,” a series of opportunities for students to socialize and ask faith-related questions of Reverend James Mac New, OSFS, our Director of Campus Ministry, was well received. Throughout the

10

year, Father Mac New offers presentations on mission and core values to groups across the campus community, from the first-year Presidential Lecture Series to student groups preparing for service trips on semester break. The highlight of the Lenten season was the “Meet Me Halfway” overnight prayer and faith-sharing program centered on Eucharistic exposition. Faculty, alumni, and students prayed together and shared openly about faith and their life experiences.

Support The Careers Center was busy this past year, offering 35 programs including career fairs, networking events, and workshops addressing such topics as career options, resume writing, interview

skills, time management, and personal finance. The Center organized eight company tours and classroom presentations, and conducted more than 400 individual counseling sessions. The annual Alumni Mentor Luncheon allowed students to seek guidance from and connect with professionals in their chosen fields. Targeted career fairs such as the Nurses Career Fair and the Part-Time Career Fair, in addition to the general career fair held each spring, exposed students to specific employment opportunities. New this year was a series of networking workshops, and the organization of 10 panel discussions with potential employers, students, and alumni. Three Holy Family students attending the Sociology/Psychology

Employer Panel Discussion were hired by visiting employers as a result of their attendance at this event. Among the most significant advances was the purchase of the latest version of the online career exploration tool, “What Can You Do With a Major In…,” last updated at Holy Family in 1999. The revised version includes 38 additional majors, bringing to 77 the number of exploration areas for students. The annual subscription to College Central Network affords Holy Family University and six other SEPCHE Career Offices a shared database of internship and employment listings as well as a host of career tools for students and alumni. The Counseling Center and Disability Services at Holy Family also had


a busy year, with a more than 18 percent increase in students seeking individual counseling and an 11 percent increase in students needing special accommodations. This number has increased exponentially each year— reflective of the nationwide statistics in this area—as more students learn about this resource through classroom presentations and workshops, and develop trust in the service providers. Among the most interesting and exciting events over this past year was a visit from Dancing Wheels Company, a professional, physically integrated dance company uniting the talents of dancers with and without disabilities, who performed at Holy Family University in recognition of National Disabilities Awareness Month. This educational and entertaining event was attended by 75 students, and will become an annual tradition at the University. The Health Services Department treated 350 patients this year, in addition to offering proactive counseling on a broad range of health concerns. Targeted public campaigns, such as Worksite Wellness Week, Breast Cancer Awareness Day, National Collegiate Alcohol and Drug Awareness Week, World AIDS Day, Stress Reduction Week, and many more, lent themselves to on-campus activities, health screenings, giveaways, and the distribution of valuable educational materials. In the area of Public Safety, full- and part-time security personnel—many of whom are retired police officers—kept a careful watch across our four locations. Key developments over the past year included an upgrade to the fire alarm

and burglar alarm systems in the Command Center, an increase in the number of surveillance cameras and monitoring screens, and an even stronger, more conspicuous presence in patrolling the grounds. The Holy Family shuttle service, now in its third year of operation, safely transported the University community and visiting guests between campus locations, to and from the airport, and to offcampus career fairs and other special events. The director received additional training and certification, including certifications from Homeland Security and FEMA, and a new, more proactive prevention philosophy in regard to safety and security was implemented on campus.

”Community service always has been really big in my family. We’ve been helped so much when things have happened to us, and we need to give back whenever we can. The service aspect of Holy Family University tied into my decision to come here. Being a part of the Habitat for Humanity Alternative Spring Break Trip for the past two years has allowed me to live out the mission. I was able to help somebody live a better life, and the experience changed my life, too. We actually got to sign a piece of wood used to build the house. We’ll always be a part of that house.”

The athletics program at Holy Family University had a strong showing this year, with the women’s basketball team reaching the championship game of the CACC finals. In addition, the team broke the NCAA Division II record by extending its regular season conference play win streak to 103 and regular season home streak to 65. The men’s soccer team made its fourth consecutive appearance in the CACC playoffs, while the women’s tennis team advanced to its third NCAA appearance. The second Athletics Hall of Fame Class was inducted in April at a ceremony attended by 250 guests, while Faculty Appreciation Night honored 40 members at a special pre-game reception. At the annual Sports Banquet, the first Walter J. Swartz, Jr. Memorial Scholarship was presented, bringing the number of scholarship awards for student athletes to seven.

Advancing the mission 25


A Fortuitous Convergence In 2009-2010, three key initiatives at Holy Family University reached their pinnacles concurrently— strategic planning, the Middle States reaccreditation, and branding. While these three undertakings are, in theory, closely intertwined, most institutions do not have the advantage of working on all three simultaneously. The timing for Holy Family University has been extraordinary, as we’ve had the benefit of developing these initiatives in a highly collaborative manner. It is indeed an exciting time for the University—a time of assessment, of reflection, and of new beginnings.

Day, where more than 90 faculty and employees analyzed the strengths, gaps, opportunities, and threats in our current strategic plan. Additional sessions were held with the Board of Trustees, the Congregation of the Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth, and University leadership and administration. It is hoped

we formed the Strategic Planning Stewardship Team and appointed an advisory committee in order to guide the next strategic planning process. Our work on the 2011-2014 plan to date has included numerous focus group sessions with faculty, staff, students, and alumni, and a Community Planning

Strategic Planning Holy Family University has reached the final year of its five-year strategic plan, encompassing 2005 through 2010. We’ve made significant strides in many areas, and have celebrated numerous accomplishments along the way. Some of our more notable achievements include the enrichment of student and residence life at the Northeast Philadelphia Campus, a pilot for our refined service learning program, enhanced outreach efforts and offerings for the adult learner, a successful focus on diversity, and more robust internationalization initiatives. With the current five-year plan coming to a close, we began laying the foundation for our next strategic plan— a four-year plan that will encompass 2011 to 2014. The shift to a four-year model will better align our planning efforts with the Middle States reaccreditation cycle. In preparation,

that the Board of Trustees will approve the new strategic plan in fall 2010, allowing its roll-out in February 2011. As we move forward, Holy Family University will continue to identify new ways to improve and expand our existing academic programs, and develop innovative new programs. We’ll discover new applications to integrate the latest technology into information delivery. We’ll seek to improve student experiences both inside and outside the classroom. We’ll explore how to enhance our living and learning environment, and we’ll continue to build a strong residence life experience for our students. Most importantly, we will continue to embrace our mission, and impart that mission to our students every day. This is the very core of who we are. This is clearly a time filled with inevitable change and considerable challenges. Ensuring that Holy Family continues to thrive will require diligence and creative thinking, as we work together to accomplish our goals.

Middle States Reaccreditation +

+

”This is a very exciting time for the University. There are countless opportunities to expand our academic offerings, to attract a diverse population of students with our residence life offerings, and to provide an exceptionally rich experience through our growing student life activities, our athletics program, and so much more. Change is all around us.”

Among the most comprehensive and important initiatives at Holy Family University in 2009-2010 was our ongoing preparation for the upcoming decennial accreditation visit by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE), scheduled for March 2011. The MSCHE is the premier accrediting body for colleges and universities in this region. To earn reaccreditation, Holy Family University must conduct a comprehensive self-study, evaluating our

+

+

+

+

+

+

+

+

”While the self-study is required by the MSCHE every 10 years, it is not something we’ve approached as something we simply ‘have to do.’ Rather, we view it as a wonderful opportunity to reflect on our strengths and areas for improvement, and determine what each of us can do to ensure that Holy Family University is operating at an optimum level. University leadership and the Board of Trustees set the tone from the beginning, and the entire community has responded with great commitment and enthusiasm about the process. It’s been a really positive experience.”

effectiveness based on the 14 Characteristics of Excellence—or standards— established by the MSCHE. It is a process that occurs every 10 years, and one that represents the very definitions of self-reflection and assessment. Preparation for the 2011 reaccreditation review began in 2008 with the formation of a seven-member Middle States Reaccreditation Executive Committee, and nine subcommittees—or working groups—with each taking responsibility to explore one or two standards. The Steering Committee is comprised of the Executive Committee and the co-chairs of the nine sub-committees. During that first year, those involved were focused on creating the actual model

14

for the self-study. That design document was approved by the MSCHE in spring 2009. With the self-study model in place, the concentration over the 2009-2010 academic year was the implementation of that model. It was a process that engaged the entire campus community, as the Steering Committee worked diligently to prepare the first draft of the University’s self-study document. Two Community Planning Days were held to solicit input beyond the Steering Committee’s extensive research and interviews, and any related materials were posted on the University’s intranet site, where feedback was encouraged. This holistic approach has captured the perspectives of a rich

cross-section of the University community, and allowed for a substantially more meaningful study. In fall 2010, the first draft of the self-study will be shared with the broader community for additional feedback. The completed document will contain a candid, analytical look at everything the University is doing, what we’re doing well, where we need modifications, and how we can accomplish specific goals. In addition to residing in the self-study document, the learnings and recommendations will be incorporated into the University’s 2011-2014 Strategic Plan, which will outline an even more specific course of action. Following review of our self-study document and

a four-day visit to campus in 2011, the MSCHE team will issue a report regarding Holy Family University’s effectiveness in meeting the 14 Characteristics of Excellence. Once we have approval, we can then commence with the implementation of our recommendations.

Branding Holy Family University In October 2009, the Board of Trustees approved a new vision statement and brand promise. It was one of many invaluable exercises that fell under the auspices of the University’s rebranding initiative that began during the 2008-2009 academic year. Based on the results of extensive research and


analysis conducted over the first two years of the initiative, our Brand Identity Communications Plan was completed in summer 2010. Branding is not something that is layered on top of everything else, but rather an integral part of every aspect of Holy Family University. It is what makes us unique. Our brand is deeply entrenched in our mission and our core values, and it is up to all of us—from the Board of Trustees to our student ambassadors—to convey that brand every day. In more tangible measures, our rebranding initiative will include the introduction of a new logo for the University, key messages, and a unified look and color palette for many of our collateral materials and awareness campaigns. Our direction is inextricably linked to the findings we uncovered in the development of the new strategic plan, as well as the discoveries we made through the extensive selfstudy for our Middle States Reaccreditation. Indeed, our assessment activities are operating at a far higher level than ever before. This level of assessment will remain a continuum.

Building the Board of Trustees In addition to reaching the pinnacle of our three key initiatives, also reaching its high point in 2009-2010 was the development of the Board of Trustees. The Board now includes 28 diverse individuals, led by a very strong chair. Over the last few years, the Board has put forth sizeable effort to ensure that the University is in compliance with all legal requirements in regard to audits, salaries, and

benefits for faculty and staff, and has updated our internal guidelines accordingly. The group has seen to it that a strong succession plan is in place at the University. They have been successful fundraisers—active in their communities, providing solid leadership in the University’s fundraising efforts, and serving as major contributors themselves. These efforts came to full fruition this past year. With the $9.1 million our students receive in financial aid generated by the University, this is a vital component. The Trustees have been integrally involved in every major initiative occurring at the University, and they continue to provide exceptional guidance and support along the way. We are most fortunate to have such a collaborative and dedicated group of individuals composing our Board.

Fundraising The ongoing economic slump has made fundraising more challenging for most charitable organizations and institutions, including Holy Family. However, we made progress and enjoyed several significant fundraising successes during 2009-2010. Three new competitive named scholarships were awarded—the Bobby and Chris Himes-Viskovich Memorial Scholarship, the Catholic Kolping Society Scholarship, and the Ulysses J. Connor, Jr. Memorial Award. Financial commitments were made toward three additional named scholarships to be introduced in the coming year—the Science is Beautiful Scholarship, the Campus Ministry Award of Merit, and

”There are more than 90 colleges and universities in the Greater Delaware Valley alone, and our ability to compete successfully depends heavily on how well we brand Holy Family University. What makes the University unique is not one thing alone, but the composite of several characteristic features or ”hallmarks” that have significant synergistic impact and produce the outcomes we promise. I like to say that if the vision is our destination, the strategic plan is the itinerary, and leadership is the bus driver, then the brand is the bus and the fuel in its tank is our will to get there.”

Activities Scholarship would be renamed for Sister and augmented by donations from students, alumni, staff, and friends. By the end of June, more than $20,000 was raised from 118 gifts, of which 79 were from alumni. Our Board of Trustees and staff collaborated again to raise more than $300,000

for student financial aid at the 17th Annual Scholarship Ball, held on June 10 in the Wanamaker Building’s Crystal Tea Room across from Philadelphia City Hall. Walter D’Alessio, Vice Chairman of NorthMarq Capital, received the Holy Family University Corporate Leadership Award in the presence of 375 benefactors. The award honors a business leader who has achieved outstanding success while modeling the University’s core values of family, respect, responsibility, service, integrity, learning, and vision. There was significant forward momentum with grants over the past year. In particular, we received two grants from the Department of Health Resources and Service Administration. These grants are important because they begin to establish a relationship with the department and other government agencies. Additionally, a TRIO grant was submitted and much of the work on Title III was completed during this fiscal year. These proposals are beginning to create a name for Holy Family within the

systematically incorporate discussion of “legacy” giving—using multi-year pledges or deferred giving strategies to make larger gifts—into our conversations with donors and prospective donors. Chairman of the Board of Trustees Dennis Colgan and his wife, Gerardine, pledged a pace-setting major gift, underwriting the cost of the new sculpture outside the Stevenson Lane Residence. Entitled “Jesus Teaching Students,” the impressive group of three figures was commissioned by the University and created by sculptress Sister Margaret Beaudette, SC. She presided over its placement in time for the dedication of the new fivestory student residence on August 25, 2009. A ceremony recognizing the Colgans will occur in fall 2010. Finally, increasing our efforts to transform students into loyal alumni donors, we again focused on the senior class. With assistance from the Division of Student Services, the Department of Alumni and Parents organized a leadership team to spearhead the Senior Class 2010 Legacy

the new legacy program were recognized at a senior class pinning ceremony and dinner hosted by the University President in April. The class raised $4,100 from 181 contributions, with a 31 percent participation rate from seniors (topping the $2,300 raised from 88 donors by the Class of 2009). A dedication ceremony will be held in the fall once a decision is made on what will be purchased with the funds raised.

The Next Generation of Technology To thwart the endless cycle and expense of replacing computer hardware to offer the most updated technology to our students, Information Technology embarked on a major undertaking this past year—desktop virtualization. This cutting-edge initiative, becoming more and more popular on college campuses, transforms our existing PCs into the equivalent of terminals, allowing students to select operating systems through virtual servers. The University has acquired licenses for 100 virtual desktops in the computer

labs. Ultimately, the desktop virtualization project will allow students to open a desktop on their own computer, and participate in a virtual lab from their dorm room or from home. This approach greatly reduces the cost of purchasing new equipment and hardware, while the move to virtual servers reduces the cost of the electricity and air conditioning for facilities that previously housed onsite servers. Also over this past year, the University increased its Internet bandwidth from 12 megabits per second to 150 megabits per second, a major boost in speed at a nominal cost increase. This has been a welcome improvement for both students and staff alike.

Global Initiatives In November 2009, University President Sister Francesca Onley, CSFN, PhD, was invited to attend the World Innovation Summit for Education in Doha, Qatar, at the invitation of Her Highness Sheikha Mozah Bint Nasser Al Missned of Qatar. The summit, titled “Global Education: Working Together for Sustainable Achievements,” convened leading educational stakeholders and opinion leaders from around the world. Also in November, Regina Hobaugh, PhD, former Dean of the School of Arts and Sciences, traveled to Rome to represent Holy Family University at the 23rd General Assembly of the International Federation of Catholic Universities. The conference brought together university officials for discussion surrounding the theme “The Catholic University in Post-Modern Societies.”

Stewards of Our Mission Holy Family University takes very seriously its responsibility to the community. We are fortunate to have many resources available to us, and it’s our privilege to share these resources with our neighbors. We are especially proud of our students, who believe deeply in giving of themselves, and who continually demonstrate these beliefs through their actions in the community.

Honoring Those Who Serve Holy Family held its fourth annual Blue Mass to honor the sacrifices of police and emergency responders who have died in the line of duty. This service and candlelighting ceremony is held every May during National Police Week. Attending the 2010 Blue Mass were police and fire officers from city districts and suburban townships, and more than 100 members of the Philadelphia Police Academy, who joined Holy Family’s Campus Security personnel—

most of whom are retired police officers. Earlier in the year, Holy Family, the Philadelphia Fire Department, and Local #22 presented philanthropist Kal Rudman with the Public Safety Championship Award. The Kal and Lucille Rudman Scholarship in Fire Science and Public Safety Administration has provided $41,000 in scholarships for Philadelphia firefighters and emergency personnel to obtain a BS degree in Fire Science and Public Safety Administration at Holy Family. Holy Family presented its annual Presidential Award to Reverend William J. Byron, SJ, PhD, the former President of Catholic University of America and the University of Scranton. The award recognizes distinguished Catholic leadership in politics and public policy. We once again served as a sponsor of the Northeast Philadelphia Hall of Fame —created to foster civic values, a sense of community, and a greater awareness of the area’s rich history— by honoring the lives and accomplishments of its most distinguished citizens. Each

year, two historic figures, two living individuals, and one organization are inducted into the Hall of Fame.

Contributing to a Safe Community In service to the community, the Public Safety Department at Holy Family University has extended our internal capabilities to act as one of 54 sites in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania providing fingerprinting services for federal criminal history clearance. Over the past year, more than 15,000 people were fingerprinted at Holy Family, finding our location to be a great convenience.

Shared Learning Once again, Holy Family University partnered with Glen Foerd on the Delaware to offer a free speaker series featuring expert authors and archeologists who presented on a broad range of historic subject matter. Topics in the 2009-2010 series included the history of the garment industry in Pennsylvania, and the fascinating story

”For centuries, the lands occupied by Holy Family University and Glen Foerd on the Delaware have been linked by the Poquessing Creek, which flows through both. Like the creek, the union of Holy Family and Glen Foerd through the Speaker Series has opened up wonderful learning opportunities that have attracted hundreds of attendees from both the local area and New Jersey.”

Telling Our Story The Marketing and Communications Department was hard at work once again in building awareness for the University. In the area of media relations, national print and regional broadcast coverage was garnered for the School of Business Administration’s new three-year-degree option. And live morning television coverage was obtained on the ABC affiliate in Spokane, Washington, featuring Holy Family students working with Habitat for Humanity during spring break. The piece was the top feature story in Spokane that day, and also was mentioned on “Good Morning America.” Over the course of the year, more than 200 print and online items were generated, resulting in more than 96 million positive impressions. In the area of online communications, 10 issues of the electronic employee newsletter Family Connection were produced, and more than 450 Web site articles were published. Total Web page views for the year reached 2.8 million. In the publications area, the team produced more than 130 print projects for University clients. Additionally, Holy Family University Magazine was honored by the College and University Public Relations Association of Pennsylvania with a prestigious silver CUPPIE Award for excellence in feature writing.

”Our student athletes are not just here for sports, but to absorb and benefit from the entire Holy Family experience. Part of that experience is becoming a contributing member of society—learning how to give of oneself. The involvement of our student athletes in the community is a natural extension of our mission statement. It can be challenging to find the proper balance between academics, sports, social life, spirituality, and service. Our student athletes are developing into well-rounded individuals who find great meaning and enjoyment in giving back. They realize that in doing so, they receive so much more than they give.” Parents to attract and engage a diverse alumni population. At the Alumni Association Annual Awards Dinner in October, more than 230 guests—twice that of the previous year—were in attendance as the University honored Sister Patrice Feher, CSFN ’66, Sister Miriam Joseph Mikol, CSFN ’66, Dr. Susan Apold ’79, and Maryann Molishus ’00. In May, the University welcomed back several classes of Holy Family graduates for Reunion Weekend. The Class of 1960—celebrating its 50th anniversary—received special recognition during Holy Family’s annual commencement. Additional activities included award ceremonies, networking sessions, and the formation of a private, online alumni community through the popular social media site Facebook.

Good Sports In July, Holy Family Athletics was named as the 2010 recipient of the Central

Atlantic College Conference Community Engagement Award of Excellence. This honor reflects the extraordinary work performed by our student athletes throughout the community. The Athletic Department marked the fourth anniversary of its signature program, Build-a-Library, donating over 2,500 books to the Laura H. Carnell Elementary School. In conjunction with this initiative, our student athletes conducted an assembly about setting and achieving goals, and visited the elementary school on several occasions to read with the children, lead them in physical activity, and enjoy lunch together. Many teams participated in service activities throughout the course of the year. Men’s soccer visited with the children involved in the Outreach Program for Soccer at the Lighthouse Soccer Club, while their women’s soccer counterparts adopted a family at Thanksgiving. The women’s basketball team hosted the “Learn with our Team” clinic for fourth

and fifth graders at Nazareth Academy Grade School and the Kindergarten at Alpha House. Our student athletes and intramural all-stars welcomed the Bucks Brigade, a group of children with mental disabilities, for a friendly game of basketball and a drum-line performance at halftime. The Holy Family Student Athlete Advisory Committee collected arts and crafts items for “Crafts for Cancer,” donated to the pediatric oncology departments at two area children’s hospitals. There were camps and clinics, food drives and gift drives, and participation in fundraising and awareness walks for numerous nonprofit organizations. There also was our commitment to the Make a Wish Foundation—our Tigers raised $1,400 for the Foundation in 2009-2010.

In Service In addition to the philanthropic efforts of our student athletes, students from across the Holy Family University community

participated in service initiatives throughout the year. In December, Holy Family donated 270 toys to area children through the University’s Toys for Tots campaign. The campaign was sponsored by Ed Connections, a servicebased club whose aim is to encourage and assist future teachers through co-curricular activities. Club members organized several events to promote the campaign, and volunteered their time at the Toys for Tots warehouse to help prepare the toys for delivery. On the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service in January, more than 40 Holy Family students volunteered their time, participating in community cleanups, assisting with health screenings, and filling gift baskets. Students in the graduate Counseling Psychology program prepared and packed meals for elderly adults and shut-ins for Aid for Friends in March. Founded in 1974, Aid for Friends serves the Greater Philadelphia region by providing and delivering daily homecooked meals prepared by volunteers. In May, students, faculty, and staff participated in the Dress for Success Philadelphia suit drive. The University donated items to the nonprofit organization, which provides professional clothing to low-income women trying to enter the workforce. Every day, the Holy Family community strives to live the University’s mission. And while the world around us continues to change, and we along with it, our commitment to our mission, and to our core values, will always remain constant.

Dedication The 2009-2010 Report of the President is dedicated to the memory of longtime Trustee George Olsen, who died on October 10, 2009, the day after his 81st birthday.

George Olsen George Olsen’s value as a Holy Family University trustee was great since he joined the board in 1983 until his death, when he still served on the Finance and Investment Committees. His business acumen came largely from a natural ability with math and science, refined by his undergraduate and graduate work at Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, New Jersey; an MS in Mechanical Engineering at Drexel University, Philadelphia; and the study of accounting at Dun & Bradstreet, New York. But, his professional success came not only from his desire to focus on his goals and the commitment to reach them. As he shared in his commencement speech at Holy Family University in February 1999, he appreciated the ingredient of luck or ”serendipity” and the need to be flexible. This enabled him to relate to people at all levels and in various roles. Commissioned an ensign at the US Navy Reserve Officer Candidate School at Newport, Rhode Island, he served on active duty at Philadelphia Navy Yard’s drydocks, where he retrofitted and maintained submarines and other vessels. A Lieutenant when he completed active duty, he learned much that would serve him as a husband, father, and business leader. He embraced the opportunity to move from a design engineer, where he started in 1956, to a senior engineering position, then to Vice President and General Manager, and in 1981 to President and CEO of Kingsbury, Inc., the largest US manufacturer of fluid-film thrust bearings. The bearings, ranging from four inches to ten feet in diameter, are used in refineries, pipelines, pumps, paper mills, aircraft carriers, nuclear submarines, and such complex systems as Boulder and Grand Coulee dams. Purchased for public and private projects as far away as Bangladesh and China, the roller bearings are known for their reliability and endurance. George understood and modeled the difference between management and leadership and moved his firm to new heights. He relocated Kingsbury from Frankford to a new manufacturing plant in the Philadelphia Industrial Park, near the Northeast Philadelphia Airport. He purchased and integrated into the company a large Wisconsin subcontractor as a wholly owned subsidiary. When he retired in 1993 the firm had doubled the number of employees and expanded its global reach to England, Japan, and China. Elected to the Third Federal Savings Board in 1982, he was Board Chair when he died. Receiving Drexel University’s prestigious ”100 Top Alumni” medal in 1992, he continued to distinguish himself through his quiet, but purposeful leadership in various organizations. In 1995, Holy Family University awarded him the CSFN Award, the highest award that the University bestows on a lay person. George served on various trustee committees at Holy Family: Chair/Member of the Investment Committee; Member, Finance Committee; Chair, Subcommittee to Review Employee Compensation and Benefits; and Member, Trustee Planning Committee. George’s life was one of balance even before he retired to enjoy more time with his beloved wife, Doris, their son, two daughters, and grandchildren, his pursuits of music and golf, and their vacation home in the Poconos. His volunteer work was extensive. His service included Director of the Settlement Music School, central board, and President of its Kardon Branch in Northeast Philadelphia, recipient of Settlement’s Founders Award in 1998; Board Chairman of the Northeast YMCA, and a director of the Philadelphia YMCA; Director, Wissahickon Public Library; and President, Maple Glen Civic Association. George shared his strategic expertise willingly and with enthusiasm. We will remember him as a gentleman of the highest order, an attentive listener, and a caring presence. His light blessed us all.
