For the RECORD Partnering for Progress

Mobile Health Clinic will bring services to Greater Nashua neighborhoods.

“Who is my neighbor?” A critical question asked and answered by Rivier students as part of the core curriculum. The simple answer is “everyone.” In this spirit, the University and community members reach out continuously to support our neighbors across the street and across the globe. This year, three initiatives focused on improving healthcare, nutrition and wellness are made possible through partnerships with several organizations. Mobile Health Clinic Rivier University is partnering with St. Joseph Hospital in Nashua to provide health services to local residents who lack access to medical and dental care. The University anticipates the new Mobile Health Clinic will serve the towns of Hudson, Litchfield, Merrimack, Milford, Nashua, and Pelham in its first year. Rivier faculty and students will have the opportunity to deliver and support healthcare services to diverse populations within these communities by providing screenings, vaccinations, counseling, and management for chronic diseases.

Meals for Kids Rivier University has joined a pilot program aimed at stemming childhood hunger. The Meals for Kids initiative, championed by Nashua Mayor James Donchess and supported by several community organizations, provided breakfast, lunch and dinner during the summer to some of the 43 percent of Nashua public school children receiving free or reduced lunches. Meals were distributed at various points throughout Nashua. Rivier’s Assistant Professor Dr. Karyn Heavner and public health students supported the effort by collecting quantitative data to evaluate the program’s effectiveness and volunteering at food distribution points. Positive results will support an expanded effort in summer 2018. CARE Rivier University was awarded a $298,000 Department of Justice grant which will fund a new program to strengthen awareness and services for victims of violence against women. The University collaborated with longstanding Nashua community partners, the Nashua Police Department, Bridges (a victim services agency), and True to Life Training, on the grant application. The new program, titled “Campus Awareness for Raiders to End issues of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking (CARE),” will strengthen prevention programs, coordinate direct services for victims, and ensure that offenders are held accountable.

The latest news from around Rivier campus Rivier awarded $205,000 grant for strengthsbased wellness program

The Davis Educational Foundation recognized the University with a three-year, $205,000 grant for Rivier to develop a new program titled Strengths-Based Well-Being: Connecting Learning and Life. The campus-wide project is aimed at strengthening students’ selfconcept, well-being, retention, and post-graduate success. This initiative aligns with the University’s Vision 2020 Strategic Plan to incorporate strengths-based strategies for both student success and staff development. “One of Rivier’s distinctive strengths is its belief that developing and supporting well-being is an integral part of a holistic education,” says Sister Paula Marie Buley, IHM, Rivier’s President. “We approach this project as a community of learners, investing in the growth and success of our students.” All students are expected to benefit, with the greatest gains anticipated for students who have yet to identify a desired major and career path. “The Davis Grant will enable our students to identify their innate strengths thereby increasing their selfawareness and self-confidence,” says Dr. Brad Stull, Professor of English and the project’s director. “The program will increase students’ resiliency and assist them in negotiating the transition from high school to college, and, ultimately, to their lives after graduation.” Guiding students’ vocational discernment early in their college careers supports their successful journeys to graduation and employment in the 21st-century workforce. In addition, Rivier faculty will conduct a longitudinal study to assess the project’s long-term impact. The University plans to share program innovations with the greater academic community.

Project Achieve supports diversity in the nursing workforce In August, the University welcomed ten first-year and seven sophomore nursing majors to Project Achieve, a program designed to increase diversity in the nursing workforce. Building on a pilot program funded by a Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) grant, Project Achieve offers underrepresented student groups with opportunities to expand their understanding of nursing careers and to hone study strategies that lead to academic success. “National data shows that diverse and first-generation students benefit significantly through a pre-orientation to the academic environment,” says Sister Paula Marie Buley, IHM, Rivier’s President. “In our own experience, this academic preparation, coupled with team building experiences and the support of faculty and student mentors, has led to remarkable retention success.” The first-year student summer enrichment and sophomore bridge programs focused on anatomy and physiology study skills, nursing professionalism, cultural development, research skills, and an orientation to clinical expectations. Team building and collective problem-solving activities were designed to strengthen confidence, enhance social skills, and ease students’ transition into university life. The time spent on campus enabled students to build relationships and become acquainted with the many support organizations available to them. “Among the seventeen participating students, seven languages are spoken and five continents are represented,” says Dr. Paula Williams, Dean of the Division of Nursing and Health Professions. “The dedication they’ve shown to their studies and the nursing profession is a strong precursor to their academic and career success.” Project Achieve activities and mentoring will continue throughout the academic year. The strong foundation established during the summer programs encourages and prepares students to fully engage in the university experience and to take on leadership roles in addition to their nursing studies.

Note: The grant was received from the Davis Educational Foundation established by Stanton and Elisabeth Davis after Mr. Davis’s retirement as chairman of Shaw’s Supermarket, Inc.

Building Tomorrow’s Workforce Groundbreaking initiative addresses New Hampshire’s behavioral health needs by Michelle Marrone EARLY IN NOVEMBER, RIVIER elevated its response to New Hampshire’s opioid abuse crisis. Redeploying its resources to address the state’s critical need for behavioral health professionals, the University officially launched The Center for Behavioral Health Professions and Workforce Development. The Center will serve as a single point of contact in promoting the University’s behavioral health graduate programs, as well as sponsoring speakers and workshop programs for current healthcare professionals, to expand the region’s workforce for increased availability and access to services. New England is nationally recognized as one of the hardest hit regions in challenges related to behavioral health and substance use disorder. A recent state report asserts that New Hampshire is experiencing “one of the most significant public health crises in its history.” Over the past five years, the New Hampshire Medical Examiner’s Office reports a nearly 300% increase in drug-related deaths, along with 6,084 opioid-related emergency department visits and the administration of 2,895 life-saving Narcan treatments in 2016. A demonstrated strain on the state’s healthcare system, the report cites “the

shortage of a trained, licensed, and available workforce is one of the greatest barriers to increasing access to substance misuse prevention, treatment, and recovery support services in New Hampshire and throughout the country.” “The Center for Behavioral Health Professions and Workforce Development has the collective synergy and strength to make deep inroads in addressing the opioid crisis and improving the health and wellbeing of those suffering from substance misuse and mental health issues,” says Sister Paula Marie Buley, IHM, Rivier’s President. Education and training The Center will expand the workforce

It will also serve as an educational resource for current regional providers by hosting conferences and online education tools, and professional development opportunities for its network partners and practitioners.

Behavioral Health Programs in clinical rotations and internships at community partner locations. Students, faculty and staff also dedicate time to University partners’ missions throughout the year through community service and research support for their programs. National and regional support In addition to graduate education resources and community partnerships, the University has received a $1.1 million grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), an agency of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Grant funds are earmarked to build the behavioral health workforce serving rural New Hampshire, with specific allocations for virtual learning tools and stipends for psychiatric nurse practitioners during their last semester of clinical training. “The grant focuses on the integration of behavioral health and primary care,” says Dr. Paula Williams, Dean of the Division of Nursing and Health Professions. “Additionally, it supports cultural diversity in the labor force, interdisciplinary and interprofessional training, and the expansion of clinical training opportunities, especially in medically underserved communities.” Rivier’s community partners played a key role in securing this grant. Letters of support from the City of Nashua’s Division of Public Health and Community

Services, Genesis Behavioral Health, New Hampshire Hospital, Harbor Homes, The Mental Health Center of Greater Nashua, Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth College, Home Health & Hospice Center, and the Organization of Nurse Leaders accompanied the grant proposal, reinforcing the need in the region and Rivier’s ability to make an impact. Center leadership Ms. Nadine Sacco has been appointed Executive Director of The Center. Her extensive background in counseling and workforce development provides a strong foundation for The Center’s leadership role in the community. Through collaborative engagement with employers, government agencies and practitioners, Sacco will spearhead Center initiatives and increase awareness and access to Rivier’s resources. More than 25 Rivier staff members, professors and clinicians contribute to The Center’s mission to enhance behavioral health education, treatment, and programming in the region. “Rivier’s response to the substance use disorder crisis and commitment to the region’s wellness are remarkable,” says Sacco. As an academic center and community resource, The Center for Behavioral Health Professions and Workforce Development has the potential to save lives and make substantial contributions to New Hampshire’s future.”

A Deeper Dive First-year students begin their university experience with an international immersion trip by Brad Wuorinen ’06 A GROUP OF FRESHMAN STEPPED foot on the Rivier campus this past August anticipating their first university experience, and for most of them, their first international excursion. Dr. Susan Barbaro, Associate Professor of Biology, quickly made sure the firstyear biology majors were prepared for the learning adventure that awaited them by introducing them to upperclass student mentors, instructing them on how to set up

14

a tent, and ensuring their passports were up-to-date. This ten-day teaching trip through the Niagara Escarpment in Ontario, Canada, was the first event held under the newly launched ARGYLES (Attract, Retain and Graduate Young LifE Scientists) program. The ARGYLES program was made possible through a $650,000 grant awarded to Rivier University by the National Science Foundation (NSF) to support

RIVIER TODAY THE MAGAZINE OF RIVIER UNIVERSITY

the intellectual and career prospects of academically talented students from lowerincome families and minority, female, or first-generation learners, who are currently underrepresented in the STEM disciplines. “It was truly the ice-breaker event for ARGYLES and for these first-year students who experienced a lot of firsts all at once,” says Dr. Barbaro, author and administrator of the NSF grant, and organizer of the learning trip. “It was their first chance to get


to know fellow Rivier students and faculty. For some, it was their first time outside New England, not to mention their first time out of the country. And for most everyone, it was their first time camping and hiking through such a diverse, natural landscape.” Mariangely Martinez, a first-year ARGYLES students, was especially appreciative of the opportunity to participate in this research trip. “I was thrilled to be able to be a part of this oncein-a-lifetime experience,” shares Martinez. “I was able to travel to another country (something I hadn’t done before) and was actually able to see one of the Seven Wonders of the World. And for that I have to thank Rivier University and Dr. Barbaro.” Joining Dr. Barbaro and the first-year students in the ARGYLES program were eight upperclass biology majors; Dr. Joe Spadano, Associate Professor of Education and Mathematics; Laura Scaife, geologist; Mary Daily, retired local educator; and Phil Redman, chef. The group arrived in Ontario with a full itinerary of exploration, research, and community building activities. They began their trip taking in the natural wonder of Niagara Falls with guided tours behind the falls and along Niagara’s White Water Walk. Subsequent days brought fossil hunting, forays in tree identification, and water quality testing at many geological and environmental sites. Additional learning experiences were led by a faculty member of the University of Waterloo in Ontario who addressed the significance of the area’s land usage and sustainability efforts, as well as the critical need to protect one of the most interesting ecosystems in the world. “Relationships were quickly forged and information was shared that helped augment traditional academic opportunities for our students,” says Dr. Barbaro. “They had unmatched access to a geologist who revealed the grandeur of the Niagara Escarpment, the falls, and the Great Lakes.” Beyond the research and learning, the trip also served as their first exposure to

universty life by introducing first-year students to upperclass student mentors, as well as to faculty members. A primary goal of the ARGYLES program is to establish working relationships between students, faculty and community members by opening channels of communication that can lead to improved academic and professional opportunities. Under the scholarship program, ARGYLES students are required to participate in this annual learning trip, a precursor to serving as mentors for next year’s new cohort of ARGYLES students. Additionally, they will attend multiple events hosted by the Rivier Biology Department and Biology Club, complete research projects, attend mentoring and tutorial sessions, participate in the new Inquiry Camp for high school students to be held at Rivier in summer 2018, and attend regional or national conferences at which they will be encouraged to present their research completed during the year. After the tents were packed up, the water samples secured, and the concerns of avoiding bears at their campsites erased from their minds, the group returned to campus better prepared for the start of the academic year.

“I expected the trip to be educational, and I expected to be placed out of my comfort zone,” recalls first-year ARGYLES student Patrice Freeman. “My fondest memory is sitting around the campfire in Cape Crocker Park having dinner under the stars with new friends, while Dr. Barbaro and Phil Redman sang songs.” Beyond introducing her to new people and community-building experiences, Freeman was also able to explore her academic and professional aspirations by taking part in the field research. “The trip has refreshed my love for fossils and geography,” says Freeman. “It made me less afraid of possibly changing my field of study in the future.” As the ARGYLES program continues to establish itself over the coming year, Dr. Barbaro and her students will surely not forget sharing this trip of firsts. “I’m sure they were originally saying, ‘Oh my gosh, what have I gotten myself into?’” reflects Dr. Barbaro. “But being in the wilderness for as long as we were, I think they forgot all about starting college and being away from home for the first time. And they made valuable connections with fellow students that will help them throughout their time at Rivier.”

IT CAN BE DIFFICULT TO REMAIN positive when your specialty is infectious diseases; yet, Dr. Karyn Heavner greets each day and student with a smile. She joined Rivier in 2016 when the University introduced its undergraduate and graduate degrees in public health. “I had been working as a consultant and missed academia,” says Dr. Heavner. “I was looking for a small university. When I visited the campus, I was attracted to the peaceful and welcoming atmosphere.” Her doctoral and post-doctoral work focused on research projects related to epidemiology methods, autism spectrum disorders, HIV/AIDS, blood cancer, and substance use disorder. Dr. Heavner’s efforts involved survey and simulation research to evaluate and publish project results. Public health is often a new subject for college students. Explaining the roles of

16

public health professionals and connecting coursework to improved health for communities and select populations is best managed through real-world examples. “I like to incorporate current events into my classes,” shares Dr. Heavner. “It is fulfilling to watch the progression during the semester as students start to appreciate the effects that diverse events, from hurricanes Irma and Maria on St. Thomas and Puerto Rico, respectively, to changes in New Hampshire state law, have on public health.” In addition, Dr. Heavner involves her students in community projects throughout the year. Their work provides them with experience in the grassroots, on-the-ground aspects of public health, as well as data collection and evaluation. This year, PH101 students received substance use disorder training on campus as part of Public Health Week.

RIVIER TODAY THE MAGAZINE OF RIVIER UNIVERSITY

“It is important for all our students to be knowledgeable about the burden of substance use disorder in southern New Hampshire. Many of our students do, or will work for, or volunteer with community organizations that serve people with this disorder,” says Dr. Heavner. “Nasal naloxone can be administered by non-medical personnel. Offering training on campus is one way that we can provide our students with tools to improve community health.” Public health professionals from the Nashua Department of Health and Community Services also educated students about the correct terminology to use when discussing people with substance use disorder. “Our students must leave Rivier prepared to discuss controversial public health issues using the proper language and cultural sensitivity,” says Dr. Heavner. These skills enable students to perform at an advanced level and engage more fully with


the populations they serve. Invested in the community, Dr. Heavner maintains close contacts with several state and non-profit partner organizations and is called upon for assistance with local public health initiatives. She and her students recently participated in Nashua’s Meals for Kids program. (See page 3.) Engagement with these partners provides another level of experiential learning for Rivier students. Prior to joining the University, Dr. Heavner was employed by the New York State Department of Health AIDS Institute. Her work there included participation in Centers for Disease Control and Prevention grant projects, which evaluated New York State’s name-based HIV reporting legislation, the Expanded Syringe Access Demonstration Program, and the Hepatitis Service Models for Injection Drug Users Project. Fast forward to June 2017, and syringe exchange is legalized in New Hampshire— an important step toward addressing several community health issues. Given her expertise and experience, Dr. Heavner's participation in a local coalition has been instrumental in establishing Nashua's first

syringe exchange program. “This is needed in Nashua, and throughout New Hampshire, to reduce the burden of HIV and viral hepatitis,” shares Dr. Heavner. The Southern New Hampshire HIV/AIDS Task Force has taken a leadership role in this project, and I look forward to working with them and other community partners.” In just one year, Dr. Heavner has helped launch two degree programs at the University, become a vital community resource, involved students in careerbuilding projects, and made meaningful contributions to state and local public health initiatives. Her efforts have a ripple effect within the Rivier and Greater Nashua communities, creating brighter futures for those influenced by her work. According to St. Francis, “… it is in giving that we receive,” and Dr. Heavner agrees. “The relationships that I have formed with colleagues, local public health professionals, and students have made my first year at Rivier remarkable. I especially enjoy watching the Capstone classes as they progress through their final projects and go on to share their knowledge and gifts with the world.”

SECOND LIEUTENANT KATRINA Ware Simpson wears many hats—wife, mother, clinician, entrepreneur, and infantry platoon leader for the Army National Guard. Strength, service, and a drive to support others’ success as well as her own, guide this alumna’s path. “I’ve loved Rivier’s mission to ‘transform hearts and minds’ since I first considered the school as an option,” says Simpson, who completed her undergraduate and graduate degrees at Rivier. Fully embracing the mission, she actively served those in need while pursuing her degrees. “While at Rivier, I attended a trip to Casa del la Esperanza in Houston with campus ministries, where we were fortunate enough to aid in caring for children who had been abandoned or separated from their families,” she shares. “I traveled to South Carolina with Habitat for Humanity … and to Kentucky with the Christian Appalachian Project. I’ve had so many opportunities to give back in a

big way; Rivier has helped to reinforce the notion of being a part of something bigger.” Upon graduation, Simpson worked in the local community, first as a clinical supervisor for a foster care agency and later for Becket Family of Services, where she specialized in treating children with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Ambitious, goal-oriented, and looking for a hands-on challenge, Simpson joined the Army National Guard in 2013. “As a civilian clinician, I deal heavily with youth who have experienced trauma,” she says. “But when I joined the military four years ago, I decided my ultimate career goal was to work with combat veterans struggling with PTSD. Twenty-two veterans take their own lives each day. When I first heard that statistic, I knew that was the population I wanted to serve.” Upon completing basic training, she returned to the New Hampshire Army National Guard and officer candidate

school. In fall 2016, Simpson made history; she completed intensive combat leadership training in the first class that included female lieutenants, and she became the first woman to graduate from U.S. Army infantry officer training. Currently a platoon leader in the New Hampshire Army National Guard’s mountain infantry company, Simpson will attend Ranger School in the future. Perhaps an even greater challenge, Simpson has created a point of intersection in her military, professional and personal lives—she and her husband recently launched New Hampshire’s first flotation therapy center. “When we were first considering flotation therapy (also known as sensory deprivation) as a business opportunity, I was hesitant; but after reviewing all of the research on utilizing sensory deprivation tanks to treat PTSD, I was all in,” says Simpson. New Hampshire Float Therapy opened in early October in Londonderry, New Hampshire. Along with her strong personal drive, Simpson claims “my husband and my daughter” as two major motivators. “My education, I’m sure will continue to prove invaluable throughout my career, but I’m more grateful for how I’ve benefited as a wife and mother,” says Simpson. “I don’t ever want my child to think that education is the end all, be all. After all, what good is education if you’re not a good person? If you don’t value others and do your part to help others when you have the opportunity, then you’re cheating yourself. Those are the moments that matter most and the moments that build character.”

The University community celebrated Coach Kolek's achievement on October 24, 2017.

Coach Craig Kolek makes NCAA history Men’s and Women’s Volleyball Head Coach and Associate Athletic Director Craig Kolek reached a career milestone this fall by entering the 400-400 Club. He is the first coach in NCAA volleyball history to win 400 games in both men’s and women’s volleyball across all three NCAA divisions. His record on the men's side also ranks him as the second winningest coach in NCAA Division III history and ninth alltime in NCAA Men’s Volleyball Division I, II and III history. Coach Kolek is a Rivier institution, coaching Raider teams for more than 20 years. "I'm obviously very humbled about this milestone, but there is also an enormous sense of pride and satisfaction," says Coach Kolek. "There are not many coaches in the country that have coached two separate teams together for any sport for this amount of time.” Over the course of his career, he has captured six Great Northeast Athletic Conference women's volleyball championships and seven GNAC men's volleyball championships. He has coached the men's program to the NCAA Division

III Final Four and was ranked #1 overall in the AVCA Coaches Poll in 2014. After the 2006 season, in which his men's team captured the NECVA Championship, Kolek was selected as the AVCA National Coach of the Year. The Rivier community extends its thanks and congratulations to Coach Kolek on his remarkable achievement. "Looking back at all the years, I can

say the sacrifice to coach both teams was at times overwhelming, and I invested a huge chunk of my life in Rivier to get the program where I wanted it to be, but I also know how much my family and friends sacrificed as well. There is no way this would have happened without the support of my parents, my brother and his family, my athletic director, and, of course, my wife."

EMPLOYER PARTNER NETWORK

A Workforce for the 21st Century Employer partnerships expand student and alumni career prospects by Michelle Marrone “GETTING A COLLEGE DEGREE IS A LOT EASIER THAN getting an education,” says Patrick Cate, Rivier’s Director of Academic and Career Advising. “An education goes beyond attending classes and earning credits. Employers are asking graduates to develop interpersonal relationships and to make cold calls; they want them to comprehend what they read and be able to write more than 140 characters.” Last fall, Rivier announced its Employment Promise Program to the incoming class, which promises invested students that they will be employed within nine months of graduation or receive additional financial or educational support from Rivier. The University strengthened its commitment to a workforce-ready education this fall with the creation of the Employer Partner Network (EPN). Aimed at offering career growth opportunities, the Network builds relationships with distinguished organizations to provide job shadowing, internship and job openings to students and alumni. RivierConnect, the EPN portal, allows registered members to maintain online resumes and digital portfolios and to access career development and employment opportunities from more than 100 approved Employer Partners. “We are currently working with UPS to recruit part-time human resources interns and with BAE Systems to recruit for their Contracts Department Summer 2018 Internship Program,” says Patricia Antonelli, Executive Director of University Career Services. “Both UPS and BAE Systems are offering paid internships and are looking at a combination of business and liberal arts undergraduate majors and alumni.” Professional development programs introduced early in students’ Rivier experience enable them to build stronger resumes,

networks, and interviewing and job skills. RivierConnect also provides a platform for alumni to access and contribute to the Network. “Alumna and current graduate student Allison Varela ’14/’17G reached out to us with biotech opportunities to add to the Network,” says Antonelli. University Career Services and Employer Partners host networking events, job shadows and site visits, industry panels, various career development workshops, and a job and internship fair. Participation in these high-impact events begins in students’ first year at Rivier and offers exposure to interviewing managers and work-based learning experiences. Many internships are paid and lead to offers of full-time employment for students and alumni. These activities augment academic learning, enhance a Rivier education, and increase overall employability. “Employers are looking for Rivier-educated employees,” shares Antonelli. “They join the Network and participate in career events to find and attract the strongest candidates for their companies.” The Employer Partner Network and RivierConnect are new tools for students and alumni to utilize in building their careers. Complementing Rivier’s liberal arts education, participation in EPN opportunities assists in getting that first, and next, great job!

Lindsay Francoeur is the driving force in the formation of the Love Your Melon Club on the Rivier University campus. The Love Your Melon organization focuses on making a difference in the lives of kids battling cancer. Francoeur decided to start this club at Rivier because “the mission of Love Your Melon reflects how I want to live my life–making a difference.” Love Your Melon is an apparel brand run by college students across all fifty states. Its mission is to give a hat to every child battling cancer in America. Additionally, product sales fund superhero adventures for children battling cancer, cancer research initiatives, and support for the families of children battling cancer. Fifty percent of the profit from all Love Your Melon sales is given to non-profit partners in pediatric oncology. In addition to running beanie donation events, the Club will raise awareness for childhood cancer and represent the Love Your Melon brand. “I think this experience with Love Your Melon will impact me as a person, allowing me to be more compassionate in my field of work,” says Francoeur.

What attracted you to your degree program and Rivier? I attended Rivier for nursing and made the move to public health during my sophomore year. Initially, I was skeptical, but after sitting in my first public health class, I fell in love with the program! I found everything about it so fascinating. I decided to add on a business minor to pursue my newly discovered dream of going into hospital administration. I'm extremely happy with my decision not only in my major, but also in the university I chose. You are very involved in campus life at Rivier serving as SGA President. What drives you to accomplish so much, and what rewards do you receive in the process? I love making a difference! I feel like that is a really cliché thing to say, but it is so true. I love to put all my effort and hard work into something and then see all of that result in making others happy. Did you complete an internship? I completed a volunteer internship in public health marketing with the Community Health Institute in Bow, New Hampshire during my junior year. I was tasked with reaching out to schools to create an awareness of Lyme disease. I compiled an enormous list of schools to send supplies to (factual posters, shower cards, tick removal spoons, etc.). I gained a lot of experience in outreach and organization, which is something I know I will take with me when I graduate and begin working a full-time job. Is Rivier University preparing you well for the job market? Yes! Rivier offers so many opportunities for you to gain experience not only in your future field of work but even other fields. After my internship in public health marketing, I discovered it wasn’t the best fit for me but I never would have known that unless I tried it out. Rivier offered me that opportunity by helping me make connections that gave me the ability to learn. I really value all the different opportunities Rivier has provided me. In my short time here, I have learned so much. I have represented my fellow students on various campus committees, gone out into my community and volunteered at places like the Anne-Marie House and the Nashua PAL Center, and made friends that will last a lifetime. Rivier really cares for the whole person, and that is one of my favorite parts about it.

She describes her education at Rivier as a realworld education. “I love learning, and I loved the diversity I found at Rivier,” says Michelle. “The professors are supportive and knowledgeable, and they offer so much insight into their own experience.” A love of learning and commitment to education runs in the family. Michelle’s mother, Pauline L. Cushion, entered Rivier at age 45, with three children, a husband, and full-time job. For her, earning a college degree had been a lifelong goal; a goal she was determined to achieve, obstacles or not. “Perseverance is the word that comes to mind when I think of her,” Michelle says, when asked to describe her mother. “She

was a very strong and determined person. Perseverance seems to be such a small word to begin to even describe her drive.” Diagnosed with melanoma while earning her degree, Michelle’s mother lost her courageous battle with cancer in May of 1995, one semester short of graduation. The University recognized Cushion’s example of perseverance and achievement by awarding her degree posthumously in 1996. As their tribute, Michelle and her family created the Pauline L. Cushion Scholarship at Rivier University. Truly a community effort, Michelle shares the tremendous effort required to start the scholarship. “We had bake sales, car washes, and raffles. Hundreds of people—friends, family, colleagues, and our church community—contributed to making this scholarship possible. Just as my mom

was driven to pursue her education, we were driven to honor her memory in a profound way.” Michelle, like her mother, is an example of someone with drive and passion. She is involved in numerous volunteer efforts while pursuing her dream career of working in corporate philanthropy. “My mom would be humbled that we are making a big deal about her. She never wanted to be in the spotlight,” Michelle tells us. “Yet I hope that bringing attention to our efforts will inspire others to contribute to Rivier University and support its many scholarships, making it possible for other students to follow their passion.” The University is honored to be entrusted with a scholarship in Pauline Cushion’s name and hopes that her legacy is an inspiration to all.

RIVIER UNIVERSITY FUND YOUR GIFT. YOUR OPTION. YOUR FUND. When you give to the Rivier University Fund, you help fulfill our mission of transforming hearts and minds to serve the world. For students like Emily, this transformation began freshman year when she participated in a scholarship program designed to connect students from diverse backgrounds with faculty, staff and the resources needed to help them succeed. For each student, transformation is different. Some find it in academics, others in study abroad, still others through athletics. Like our students, we know that certain areas of your life have had a greater impact on you. That’s why we invite you to designate your gift to the area most meaningful to you.

When you give to the Rivier University Fund, YOU designate your donation to support: AREA OF GREATEST NEED Your gift supports the University’s greatest needs and is utilized where it will have the biggest impact on our students and their futures.

SCHOLARSHIPS Rivier University provides $12 million in scholarships each year, making a Rivier education within reach for more students.

REGINA LIBRARY Regina Library offers quiet and collaborative spaces and resources for students to gather, study and learn.

STUDENT ACTIVITIES Rivier provides a diverse mix of clubs, teams, social and community service opportunities that enrich the student experience.

ATHLETICS Rivier Raiders compete as Division III members of the NCAA and the GNAC. Your donations fund Raider athletics and campus-wide health and wellness programs.
