Senior Reagan Terry honored with Woman of Promise Award

Reagan Terry has been honored with the Woman of Promise Award, given annually by St. Bonaventure University’s School of Journalism and Mass Communication.

Terry, a senior from Brushton, N.Y., received the award Tuesday from Dr. Mary A. Hamilton, a retired associate professor of journalism and mass communication at St. Bonaventure. The award, named in honor of Hamilton, is presented to a St. Bonaventure senior who sets a good example for her peers and excels both in and out of the classroom.

“I am absolutely ecstatic about the award,” Terry said. “I feel like I won the gold medal at the Olympics. It is a great honor to be recognized by such a wonderful faculty who are so inspirational themselves.”

Janice Lieberman, NBC consumer reporter, was the keynote speaker at the award ceremony. A former

colleague of Lee Coppola, dean of the Russell J. Jandoli School of Journalism and Mass Communication, Lieberman has worked for NBC News, “Today,” and “Later Today.”

Lieberman and Coppola were co-workers at WIVB-TV in Buffalo, where she was an anchor and reporter, as well as a researcher for WCBS-TV in New York and ABC News.

Terry, a 2003 graduate of Brushton-Moira Central School, has concentrated on courses in broadcasting and public relations at St. Bonaventure, and has been named to the dean’s list every semester of her four years.

“Reagan possesses all the attributes of someone who will succeed in whatever she undertakes after graduation,” said Coppola. “She’s intelligent, energetic and compassionate, and she’s exhibited all of these during her four years at St. Bonaventure.”

Terry has interned with several different organizations, including her hometown newspaper, The Malone Telegram. She has also been involved with several clubs and organizations on campus including The Buzz, SBU-TV, the Student Ambassador Program and the Bonaventure Choir.

After graduation, she hopes to work in the fields of broadcasting or public relations, as well as volunteering with such groups as the SPCA.

Alden Trust supports sciences at SBU

A $125,000 grant from the George I. Alden Trust in Worcester, Mass., will allow St. Bonaventure University to develop a biopsychology program and enhance the computer science curriculum, providing undergraduate students with the opportunity to study the connections between brain, mind and behavior.

In this two-part initiative, the Department of Computer Science will purchase a PeopleBot robot, which is designed specifically to interact with people and will be used for undergraduate research and for public outreach activities. In the second phase, the Department of Psychology will create and equip a biopsychology laboratory that will be used for newly created courses in biopsychology and undergraduate research projects.

Combined, the two projects will reach all psychology and computer science majors as well as a significant portion of students majoring in the other sciences at St. Bonaventure.

http://www.sbu.edu/SBUCustom/InsideBonas/IB_March23/March23_Page_2.htm (2 of 13)3/26/2007 8:31:44 AM

Dr. Robert Harlan, head of St. Bonaventure’s Undergraduate Robotics Laboratory and co-author of the grant, said the PeopleBot robot will enable him to combine two lines of his research — his work in artificial intelligence involving the design of planning systems that can understand commands in English and carry them out in a simulated world, and his work in robotics involving developing software that will enable a robot to function in the real world.

Harlan said much of the coding for programs controlling the robot’s behavior, planning and reasoning will be developed by computer science undergraduates.

“It will provide them with a platform for developing real-time, mission-critical software,” he said, adding that students in other disciplines will be able to design and conduct experiments on how humans interact with the robot.

Harlan also noted that the PeopleBot will enable Dr. Anne Foerst, a theologian and member of the Department of Computer Science, to continue her experimentation with human-robot interaction begun at the Artificial Intelligence Laboratory at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Foerst, co-author of the grant and an internationally known expert on human-robot interaction, is the author of “God in the Machine,” a book that examines what robots can teach us about being human. The second part of the initiative will be conducted by Dr. Darryl Mayeaux, assistant professor of psychology and co-author of the grant, who will develop and subsequently offer the biopsychology lab class.

“Together, the two projects build a base for understanding the concept we call ‘mind,’ how it emerges from physiology, and what features of an interactive entity — biological or non-biological — lure us to attribute ‘mind’ to that entity,” said Mayeaux. Each level of biological organization and each emergent phenomenon is amenable to scientific study, he said.

According to Mayeaux, the biopsychology lab will offer students in introductory-level courses the opportunity to explore the biological foundations of behavior through lecture and lab classes, each of which will be organized around testing meaningful competing hypotheses.

In upper-division laboratory courses, including collaborative research with undergraduates, the project will offer more opportunities to work with animal models of learning processes and of disorders such as depression and obsessive-compulsive disorder, he said.

“There are many scientific questions whose answers await discovery,” said Mayeaux, adding that learning by pushing back, in small steps, the borders of scientific information is “exciting, sometimes frustrating, but always unforgettable.”

A previous grant from the Alden Trust in December 2003 supported the purchase of a High Performance Liquid Chromatograph (HPLC) and a Gas Chromatograph/Mass Spectrometer (GC/MS), which are key pieces of scientific equipment used in the undergraduate science programs.

“St. Bonaventure has a strong commitment to a vibrant liberal arts education firmly grounded in the sciences,” said Stephen Stahl, Ph.D., dean of the School of Arts and Sciences. “The Alden Trust grant will contribute significantly to a research-robust curriculum where our students will become research collaborators from the very first day on campus and will, over their four years, mature into competent, independent researchers before they head off to graduate school, industry, or secondary classrooms.”

Stahl noted that the Alden Trust grant is a significant step in helping the University to complete the current Kresge Foundation challenge. St. Bonaventure must raise $2,659,880 for construction/renovation of its science facilities — for equipment, and for science-related scholarships and endowment — by Oct. 1 in order to receive a Kresge Foundation challenge award of $850,000.

With the Alden grant, the remaining amount the University must raise in order to meet the challenge award is about $160,000, he said.

BonaResponds returns to the south - with a stop in Alabama

BonaResponds returned to the south during St. Bonaventure University’s midterm break with 60 volunteers, aiding tornado victims in Enterprise, Ala., and rebuilding the Gulf Coast, which continues to suffer 19 months after Hurricane Katrina.

At 5 p.m. on March 2, BonaResponds participants boarded a bus and arrived in Enterprise 21 hours later. As first responders to the tornado crisis, the army of brown removed debris from houses and properties, cut and hauled trees, cleaned the neighborhood and spoke with residents.

Jim Mahar, head of BonaResponds and assistant professor of finance at St. Bonaventure, described the army of brown in the BonaRespond’s blog, comparing the volunteers to ants:

“All that I could imagine was what we were looking down on a giant ant hill,” Mahar said. “I had to stop to take it all in. Laid out ahead of us there were people dressed in brown T-shirts seemingly everywhere. All of the other BonaRespond volunteers had, without any order being given, congregated in the midst of the worst hit area of the neighborhood. People in brown shirts scurrying up and down the slopes, people in brown shirts rolling tree trunks down hills, people in brown shirts dragging branches to the curb, people in brown shirts stooping to pick up debris, and people in brown shirts lifting spirits everywhere. A quick count showed that there were about 40 (of a possible 47) volunteers within a quarter mile area.”

http://www.sbu.edu/SBUCustom/InsideBonas/IB_March23/March23_Page_2.htm (4 of 13)3/26/2007 8:31:44 AM

After two days in Enterprise, all but six BonaResponders re-boarded the bus and traveled to Mississippi, where the group remained through March 9. The six who remained behind continued with cleanup efforts for two more days and worked with Persevere Volunteers before rejoining the rest of BonaResponds along the Coast.

Volunteers were divided among Bible Fellowship Church, Randy’s Rangers and St. Rose De Lima Catholic Church.

“In Mississippi, it still looks like the aftermath of the storm has hold of the houses and neighborhoods along the coast,” said Allison Whalen, a St. Bonaventure sophomore and first-time volunteer who stayed at Randy’s Rangers.

“It seems as if many parts of Pass Christian are stuck in a rut. Some businesses and large oceanfront houses have sprung up, but middle-class and low-income homes look as if the storm tore through yesterday, leaving only the foundations and staircases. It’s eerie,” she said.

Volunteers worked among several different work sites. Tasks included removing debris, gutting buildings, fighting toxic mold, cleaning properties, cutting and hauling trees and rebuilding houses.

“[My group] worked on a particular house every day,” Whalen said. “We mudded and sanded and prepared the house to be painted. It was really cool to come back each day and be able to take notice of the progress we were making.”

“The most obvious benefit that our volunteers provide is the actual services completed. For instance a clean yard, a safe house or new drywall hung,” Mahar said. “But I think more that that our volunteers provide hope and reassurance that the outside world does care. It is hard to quantify, but that is one message that I hear at every event we do. From Biloxi to New Orleans to Buffalo to Enterprise, tears of joy and sincere thanks are the typical response to our work and us being there.”

Students did not completely forgo their spring breaks for all work and no play. Students enjoyed true Mississippian dinners midweek complete with crawfish, shrimp and crab at a local restaurant. They also visited New Orleans their last night before returning to school.

BonaResponds was created in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. It has taken approximately 400 volunteers to the Gulf Coast and led just as many volunteers in service projects throughout Western New York. BonaResponds aims to be a world-class organization whose mission is to help people in need, as well as to build better leaders and better communities. The group, comprised of students, faculty, staff, alumni and local residents, is run completely through donations.

BonaResponds has a local service day planned for April 21 and another trip to the Gulf in May.

http://www.sbu.edu/SBUCustom/InsideBonas/IB_March23/March23_Page_2.htm (5 of 13)3/26/2007 8:31:44 AM

BonaResponds welcomes new members, regardless of affiliation with St. Bonaventure. For more information regarding BonaResponds, visit http://www.bonaresponds.org or contact Mahar at bonaresponds@sbu.edu.

Hut-A-Thon to raise awareness about homelessness

Chris Anderson doesn’t want to raise just money to fight homelessness. He wants to raise awareness.

So he’s going to spend the better part of two days outside doing just that, and he’s inviting anyone concerned about the issue to join him and several members of the St. Bonaventure community.

Hut-A-Thon will be held from 3 p.m. Friday, March 23, until noon on Sunday, March 25, outside the University Ministries building (Thomas Merton Center) on the St. Bonaventure University campus. Anderson, a graduate student and intern in SBU’s Collaborative Counseling Clinic, hopes to be joined by several students, faculty members and area residents in a makeshift hut being constructed this coming week with the help of local contractors and home improvement businesses.

The fundraiser will benefit Genesis House, the Olean shelter that helps the homeless get back on their feet, and Phi Rho, the local chapter of the Chi Sigma Iota National Counseling Honor Society.

"We decided to join forces with Genesis House to hopefully show how the two issues are linked," said Anderson, who was inspired to re-create at St. Bonaventure the Hut-A-Thon experience he had while he was an undergraduate at Allegheny College in Meadville, Pa.

"I think there are so many stigmas attached to homelessness that just aren’t true, that people are just making poor choices, or that they’re just not trying hard enough. So often there are mental health issues that lead people to homelessness, so we hope to make people understand that more."

Participants can ask friends, family members, co-workers, teachers, etc., to pledge money for the period of "hut" time for which they sign up. Participants are asked to sign up for at least a two-hour period; the event will go around the clock, regardless of the weather, Anderson said.

"Homelessness doesn’t take a break in bad weather," he said.

People interested in just stopping by the hut and making a donation to the cause are more than welcome, Anderson said. The University Ministries building will be open the entire 45-hour window for coffee and hot chocolate, water and restroom access, he said.

http://www.sbu.edu/SBUCustom/InsideBonas/IB_March23/March23_Page_2.htm (6 of 13)3/26/2007 8:31:44 AM

Anderson hopes the event will also make people in the region more aware of SBU’s Counseling Clinic, which opened last fall and provides affordable mental health and academic services for the region.

"Very few colleges have an on-site clinic like this that provides both mental health counseling and academic services," Anderson said. "It’s really quite a resource for the community, especially to be able to reach such an underserved population with very affordable service."

Community members both on campus and off can register for a hut time slot and get a pledge sheet by calling Anderson at (716) 375-2353, or e-mailing him at anderscc@sbu.edu. Donated checks should be made out to Phi Ro, with Hut-A-Thon on the memo line.
