Ally Program to Begin this Fall

The University has announced a ne w program to care for gay, lesbian and bisexual students within the context of its Jesuit and Catholic mission. The program, called the Ally Program, is founded in the Catholic moral teaching that entails care for all regardless of sexual orientation and defends homosexuals against any form of prejudice, violence and abuse. The Ally Program is not an advocacy group, nor is it a gay, lesbian and bisexual student club. According to Vincent Carilli, Ph.D., Vice President for Student Affairs, who designed the Ally Program along with John Shea, S.J., Vice President for University Ministries, the program addresses the church's stand against hate crimes, bigotry, or discrimination against homosexuals. The program complies with the moral position of the church on homosexuality and homosexual sexual activity. Dr. Carilli and Fr. Shea designed the Ally Program after an extensive research initiative. Their research included a review of existing programs at other Jesuit universities in the United States and input from members of the University's community. The program was announced to the University's community through a 5 May memorandum by University President Joseph M. McShane, S.J. The memorandum states that the Ally Program, which will begin in the fall of 2003, intends to "promote an environment where all individuals are welcomed into and supported by the campus community regardless of sexuality; to provide a supportive network of trained community members who can assist students when issues of intolerance arise based upon sexual orientation; and to provide the University community with a resource to which it can turn when an issue of intolerance arises." In the explanation of the program, the University quoted from the 1976 National Conference of Catholic Bishops, entitled To Live is Christ, stating "homosexuals, like everyone else, should not suffer prejudice against their basic human rights. They have a right to respect, friendship, and justice. They should have an active role in the Christian community." The University refrained from initiating a gay, lesbian and bisexual club because of the belief that human sexuality is a private matter. Clubs were considered public and external in nature, and therefore not recommended for addressing this issue. The Ally Program will provide a supportive environment through individually trained members of the University's community, which will allow gay, lesbian and bisexuals students to speak freely and safely about their concerns. In addition, the program will provide an official venue to help to eliminate acts of intolerance against these students within the University's community.

Board Room Named in Honor of PNC Bank

The University has named the board room in the Executive Center of Brennan Hall in honor of PNC Bank to recognize a significant grant from the PNC Foundation for the construction of Brennan Hall and to acknowledge the support PNC has consistently provided to the University. The announcement was made at the May President's Breakfast. PNC Bank is the corporate sponsor of the breakfast lecture series that brings together members of the civic and business community to hear guest speakers address topics of regional, national and international interest. Standing in front of the PNC Bank Board Room are, from left, Frank J. McDonnell, Esq., Chairman of the Board of Trustees, University President Joseph M. McShane, S.J. and Peter J. Danchak, President of PNC Bank Northeast Pennsylvania.

The Class of 2003 has honored two faculty members with teaching awards. David Black, Ph.D., Professor of Philosophy at The University of Scranton, has been presented the Edward Gannon, S.J., Award for Teaching. The annual award, David Black, established in 1978 by Ph.D. the University's chapter of Alpha Sigma Nu, the national honor society for students in Jesuit colleges and universities, recognizes outstanding teaching among faculty. Dr. Black was voted by the University's Alpha Sigma Nu honor society as this year's recipient. The award was presented at the Alpha Sigma Nu brunch on 4 May. "It is gratifying to receive this award from such a special group of students," said Dr. Black. "There are many fine teachers at the University, and so it is especially kind of the students to think of me." Dr. Black joined the University in 1984 as Assistant Professor of Philosophy.

"Thomas Aquinas defined teaching as `passing on to others things that have been seen.' It has been my experience that the world wants to reveal its mysteries to someone prepared to pass them on to students," said Dr. Rowe. "For me the classroom is a place where William clarity happens and the Rowe, Ph.D. heart of it all is sharing this experience with students who will listen. I have been blessed with many listening students." Dr. Rowe joined the University in 1990 as Associate Professor of Philosophy. He was named Professor and Chair of the Philosophy Department in 1995.
