IUP Guides: Someone to Turn To

Last fall, IUP launched its Guides program, assigning all new students—and others, by request—to faculty and staff members who could answer their questions and connect them with the right resources. Nearly a full school year into this effort, students and Guides (like Maggie Weader and Adam Jones) weigh in on the program’s value.
Brianna Doyle has received IUP’s Coppler Disability Awareness Award. She is researching how and why students choose to disclose their disabilities and how that impacts their early college literacy experiences.
IUP’s chapter of the interdisciplinary honor society Phi Kappa Phi has selected Bradley Welman as this year’s Reynolds Scholarship recipient. Welman plans to use the scholarship to continue at IUP in the MA in Criminology program.
Indiana Lions Club has selected Brooke Zawalnicki, a nursing student graduating summa cum laude, for its Nurse Humanitarian Award, which recognizes knowledge, empathy, and strong morals and work ethic.
Anthropology professor Victor Garcia and his team published two journal articles and a book chapter on the use of juramento, the practice of making a pledge to a saint to abstain from alcohol and other drugs, among Mexican immigrants in southeastern Pennsylvania.  
Stephen Shiring, Yasong (Alex) Wang, and Nicole Buse are completing certifications in hotel industry analytics and in advanced hospitality and tourism analytics through the STR SHARE Center.
Anthropology had three participants in the recent IUP Scholars Forum—undergraduates Nikki Wilcox and Marissa Willson and master’s student Gage Huey—and a department haul of three awards.
