Muskingum IMPACT: Powerful Partnerships Dear Muskingum Alumni and Friends, The year 2021 was one of significant progress for Muskingum. We provided in-person learning throughout the year, with our campus community working together to keep each other safe and navigate the COVID-19 pandemic. In Fall 2021, we welcomed more than 440 new students to campus, our largest incoming class in a decade. And as you will read in this issue of IMPACT, we have continued to innovate and develop the Muskingum education of the future. The strategic planning initiatives of IMPACT 2025 continue to expand and enhance the Muskingum student experience. In this year’s report, we focus on powerful partnerships across all strategic areas, which we are undertaking with individuals, foundations, businesses, organizations, and state and federal government agencies. More than $625,000 in advanced equipment for our STEMM programs (page 4) is moving Learning and Innovation forward. Grants and gifts from generous individual donors, the Ohio Board of Nursing, and scientific businesses and organizations made this investment possible.


New and renovated campus facilities define Transformative Growth, enabling us to extend our commitment to educating the whole student for the whole world. In 2021, the ongoing Quad Center renovation qualified for both federal and state historic tax credits, and a partnership with campus dining services provider Aramark created an upgraded Bait Shop with a Starbucks counter (page 7). One of the project’s highlights is mobility accessibility, with the addition of an elevator and mobility access to the Bookstore. The second floor (TOC) will house our new Impact Center as well as our Student Life staff. As the new Henry D. Bullock Health and Wellness Complex (BHWC) nears completion, holistic program planning (page 8) is shaping the benefits for the campus community. The generosity of individual and foundation donors – along with partnerships with regional healthcare providers, educational institutions, and health-related businesses – is expanding student learning and wellness opportunities for every Muskie. As the lessons learned from COVID-19 open new opportunities to connect

other financial support to 100% of our students, making us one of the most affordable private schools in Ohio. It is because of you that the Muskingum experience is accessible to students from all backgrounds.

Our promise of affordability (page 9) to our students is the centerpiece of our new and dynamic Visibility and Distinction marketing campaign. Your generosity through the Annual Fund enables us to provide scholarships and

IMPACT 2025 Our strategic action plan guides us to a dynamic learning environment where each and every one of our students will thrive.

With vital new initiatives shaping how our students experience their education, Muskingum University will thrive.

Creative collaboration brings our campus, our surrounding communities, and our alumni and friends together in powerful partnerships, to help our region thrive.

The transformational Henry D. Bullock Health and Wellness Complex (BHWC) is a linchpin for a thriving future for our students, our University, and our region.




Learning & Innovation Grants, gifts, and matching University investments in STATE-OF-THE-ART SCIENTIFIC EQUIPMENT enhance LEARNING & INNOVATION, providing students with dynamic study and research opportunities and ensuring outstanding preparation for career and graduate school pursuits. $625,000 in Advanced Equipment Supports Learning in the Sciences Over the past several years, more than $625,000 in grants, gifts, and matching University investments have enhanced hands-on science education at Muskingum with state-of-the-art equipment in biology, chemistry, computer science, physics and engineering, and health sciences.

Students from majors across the campus have access to the equipment, which serves the full range of learners, from first years enrolled in introductory courses, to seniors conducting sophisticated scientific research projects, to graduate students in the Master of Occupational Therapy program.

Biology and Health Sciences Anatomage Table The Anatomage Table is a powerful threedimensional visualization tool for anatomy and physiology. Offering multiple human and animal cadavers and customizable programming, students benefit from flexible content. Medical image files can be imported and uploaded into the table, allowing students to analyze real-world diagnoses. The acquisition of the Anatomage Table was made possible through a generous gift by Muskingum Trustee Craig W. Anderson ’73, M.D. and his wife Deborah Hart Anderson ’74. “We love to support projects that directly impact students. Anatomage is an amazing teaching and learning tool that brings multiple and unique benefits to their educational experience.”

Nursing students’ high-fidelity simulation activities in the lab prepare them for clinical experiences.

“Anatomage brings the science to life, providing hands-on, active learning and aiding the development of our students’ critical thinking.” - Associate Professor of Nursing Terra Armstead

Nursing became the first program to incorporate the Anatomage virtual cadaver into the curriculum, shortly after it was acquired in the Fall 2021 semester. Faculty in biology, animal science, exercise science, health and fitness, and the Master of Occupational Therapy program are also integrating the table into their coursework. Housed in Boyd Science Center, the Anatomage Table can be controlled and accessed remotely from other locations. For example, exercise science students working in the Diagnostic Hub of the Bullock Health and Wellness Center (BHWC) will be able to use the table to support physical performance analyses, fitness assessments, and customized exercise plans.

Biology students examine cells using an immunofluorescence microscope.

Nursing Simulation Lab The Ohio Board of Nursing (OBN) awarded two grants totaling nearly $400,000 to Muskingum’s program, in support of a state-of-the-art laboratory environment. The 2019 grant was used to expand the nursing simulation lab from five to nine beds, allowing more students to be served in the program. The most recent grant, received in Fall 2021, is being used to create a second eight-bed simulation lab, which will open in Fall 2022. The hands-on learning offered in the simulation lab builds students’ clinical judgment, assessment, and problem-solving skills, providing outstanding preparation as they enter clinical settings and nursing practice. Immunofluorescence Microscope A recently acquired immunofluorescence microscope is expanding the possibilities for student research projects and providing valuable experience in a widely used technique for studying mammalian cells.

As students explore cancer cell biology in upperlevel coursework and faculty-student research projects, real time immunofluorescence allows them to examine changes in the mitochondrial organization of cells carrying a common cancer mutation and compare them to normal cells without the mutation. This research aims to identify additional targets for which cancer treatment could be developed. DNA Analyzer Through a Genomics Education Matching Funds Grant, Muskingum obtained a Li-Cor DNA Analyzer. This equipment allows students to determine the order of the bases in DNA and identify the type of gene in a sample. As part of the ongoing field research at The Wilds, for example, they identified the presence of hellbenders in stream water. The DNA sequencer is used in coursework as well as in faculty-student research projects.





Chemistry Chemical Separation, Identification, and Analysis Equipment A wide variety of equipment allows the Chemistry Department to provide novice students in introductory courses with early hands-on opportunities to use scientific instrumentation, as well as support upper-level students in research projects. These devices include a gas-chromatograph mass spectrometer, Vernier mini gas chromatographs, a thermal conductivity detector gas chromatograph, Vernier spectrometers, Vernier emission spectrometers, an atomic absorption spectrometer, an ultraviolet-visible spectrophotometer, and a nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometer. In each of the past four years, the Chemistry Department has received external grants to purchase new equipment, including funding from the Spectroscopy Society of Pittsburgh and the National Science Teaching Association Vernier Technology Award.

Computer Science Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality Devices Oculus Rift virtual reality devices support computer science students in the 3D gaming course and in independent projects, by generating realistic visual and auditory images to place the user in a virtual environment. A HoloLens device is used in a special topics course on augmented reality to provide an experience where real-world objects are enhanced by computer-generated perceptual information across multiple senses. 6


The atomic absorption spectrometer supports senior capstone research projects.

Both types of devices offer an excellent introduction to virtual and augmented reality for prospective and current students who are new to the experiences.

Engineering Engineering Software Muskingum provides engineering majors access to industry-standard software in key areas. Three notable examples are: • SOLIDWORKS – a solid modeling computer-aided design and computer-aided engineering program used by mechanical, electrical, and electronics engineers to form a connected design. • MATLAB – a programming and numeric computing platform used to analyze data, develop algorithms,

and create models. MATLAB allows matrix manipulations, plotting of functions and data, implementation of algorithms, creation of user interfaces, and interfacing with programs written in other languages. • OrCAD® PSpice® – a program combining native analog, mixed-signal, and analysis engines to simulate, verify, analyze, and refine electronic circuits, components, and parameters.

Transformative Growth Transformative Growth initiatives of IMPACT 2025 are yielding CAMPUS ENHANCEMENTS and POWERFUL PARTNERSHIPS, improving ACCESSIBILITY, and supporting new dimensions of Muskingum’s commitment to EDUCATING THE WHOLE STUDENT FOR THE WHOLE WORLD.

Quad Center Renovations: The Power of Partnerships The physical centerpiece of the Quad Center renovation project is nearing completion, with the building’s elevator opening this spring. For the first time, the Top of the Center, Bottom of the Center, and the Bookstore will be mobility accessible. The initial phase of the project, completed in Fall 2021, enhanced the Bottom of the Center (BOC) with accessible restrooms, an accessible entrance to the Barnes & Noble College Bookstore, and renovation and expansion of the Bait Shop Café, including the addition of a Starbucks counter. The future phase of the project will bring accessible restrooms, a renovated home for the new Impact Center to the Top of the Center (TOC), and a new roof.

The new Impact Center destined for the TOC is supported by the $2.2 million Title III Strengthening Institutions grant Muskingum received from the U.S. Department of Education in 2020. This innovative student success initiative will provide comprehensive career preparation for students from their first day on campus through graduation and beyond. Integrating hands-on career preparation into every

academic program and developing experiential learning partnerships with businesses and non-profit organizations statewide will highlight the Impact Center’s programming. A partnership with Aramark, the University’s dining service provider, made possible the Bait Shop Café renovations and Starbucks counter addition.

In late 2021, the Quad Center Renovation project qualified for both federal and state historic tax credits. These credits encourage private investments by outside entities into projects which enhance buildings of 50 years or greater age. The Quad Center is one of only 24 projects statewide and the only project in Southeastern Ohio to receive Ohio Department of Development Historic Preservation Tax Credit approval.

Thriving Future THRIVING FUTURE initiatives in DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION have upgraded technology across Muskingum, resulting in GREATER CONNECTIVITY and ENGAGEMENT FOR STUDENTS and new OPPORTUNITIES TO REACH OUT to alumni, friends, and prospective students. Thriving Future initiatives have upgraded computer and network technology for learning and in every aspect of the University. They have enhanced the student experience, supported creative educational approaches, broadened engagement with constituencies, and reinforced the University’s operating efficiency and resiliency.


Virtual Engagement

Muskingum has expanded residential Wi-Fi and entered a first-in-Ohio partnership with network infrastructure experts APOGEE to provide ResNet managed services. Students have benefited from increased network speed and reliability, with 24-7 access for user support.

When the COVID-19 pandemic required a shift to virtual instruction, faculty and staff quickly developed creative new ways to deliver highquality education across the curriculum. Building on that knowledge opened opportunities to connect with off-campus constituencies. Prospective students can choose from both virtual and in-person tours and events. Live-streamed concerts and special events welcome virtual audiences of families, alumni, friends, and the community. Magenta Homecoming 2021 brought alumni together in-person and virtually – such as the Class of 1951 who celebrated their 70th Reunion with a hybrid gathering.

Resiliency When an ice storm in early 2022 brought a two-day power outage for the campus and New Concord, the University kept its computer networks operating, allowing vital communication to continue uninterrupted.
