Celebrating Scholarly Achievement

2006 Jesuit Stipends

Two stipends are offered annually by the Jesuit community to encourage and support faculty in developing new courses, or substantially modifying current courses, to advance the Catholic Mission of UDM. Previously funded by the Jesuit 100 Association, these stipends are now funded solely by the Jesuit Community at UDM to promote the Catholic identity and spiritual values of the university as it prepares the future leaders of our community and the world.

Information provided as summary statements comes directly from the faculty's proposals.

Deines, Amy (2006)

Amy Deines proposes a multi-disciplinary, multi-media course dealing with aspects of Social Justice, Architectural Justice and Cultural Justice. "The Urban Stitch: Viewing + Valuing Detroit's Culture and Inhabitants" will have students engaging in an aspect of Detroit dealing with everything from homelessness, accessing public transportation, housing and public spaces. A reactive component of the course will have students in dialog with students in architecture, engineering, CLAE, and digital media. The course by its content and required actions will nurture the spiritual and ethical development of each student, by teaching them the significance of contribution and using their skills. Amy Deines is an assistant professor in the School of Architecture

DiPaolo, Donald (2006)

Donald DiPaolo's purpose of a newly designed "Introduction to Education" would be to introduce Teaching for Social Justice as a unifying theme throughout the teacher education program. In order for the students to feel empowered for the important work of teaching the course would introduce the idea of Teacher as Leader as part of the theoretical frame. Paying attention to the inner world of young teachers, and nurturing their development as whole people searching for a life of meaning, is critical personal and spiritual work. Dr. DiPaolo is an assistant professor and chair of the Education Department.

Rayes, Nassif (2006)

Nassif Rayes proposal for an "Interdisciplinary, Design, Entrepreneurship and Service" course is aimed at producing UDM college graduates that are able to identify social/community needs, collaborate effectively across disciplines and expertise, employ technical and design skills to devise solutions and have the business savvy to turn their endeavors into successful ventures. The course will focus on solving a problem/concern within the community, such as digital divide, prevalent health-care issues, homelessness, and neighborhood blight. Dr. Rayes is an assistant professor in Mechanical Engineering.
