Celebrating Scholarly Achievement

2008 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.

Currently displaying all Jesuit Stipends. Limit the items displayed to:

Caspers, Mary Lou (2008)

Mary Lou Caspers' proposal "Development of a Course in Food Chemistry for Non-science Majors" will give students the necessary scientific know-how to positively impact our world today. The course will allow students to think like scientists by analyzing data, drawing conclusions from this data and seeing how their conclusions fit into a larger theory. Dr. Caspers is a professor of chemistry in the Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry.

Slowik, Linda (2008)

Linda Slowik's proposal for a course titled "Psychology, Satisfaction and Work Effectiveness" will address such employee-centered criteria as satisfaction, commitment, and involvement. The course will focus on knowledge and understanding of the meaning of satisfaction and commitment, multi-dimensional nature of job performance, perspective on motivation, the meaning of organization effectiveness, and the dynamics of groups. Dr. Slowik is an associate professor of Psychology.
