Their fundraising, community service, and advocacy efforts throughout the year demonstrate their dedication to field of speech-language pathology.”

Dr. Cowgill Invited to be Faculty Artist for Conducting & Singing Symposium in Italy

Dr. Jennifer Cowgill, Associate Professor of Voice, was invited to be a Faculty Artist in Robbiate, Italy, where she will be performing and teaching at the “Bassi Brugnatelli Conducting and Singing Symposium” this summer. 

Profiles in Passion - Jean Dahlgren ’01

For Jean Dahlgren, a 2001 graduate of the “Get your Master’s with the Masters” program at Marywood University, Scranton, Pa., art is something that she was passionate about from the first moment she can remember. Recently named as the president of the Delaware College of Art and Design (DCAD), Wilmington, Del., Jean continues to live her passion by inspiring others to find theirs.

“I was just born an artist, and I’ve never considered doing anything else,” Jean said. Jean’s mother was an artist and encouraged her to find her passion, and Jean feels lucky to have had someone who encouraged her talent. “That’s what I hope to do with young artists—encourage them to find their passions, to stamp out the negatives, and help them [young artists] to find a way to make a living at it,” she continued.

At the time that Jean attended Marywood University’s low-residency program, “Get Your Master’s with the Masters,” she had small children, a business, and a full-time job. When searching for graduate schools, Jean was looking for a program that was in the right proximity with low-residency.

“Marywood worked for me – with a great location, an accredited program and low-residency – it was perfect. Being able to get to New York to complete study tours made it all possible for me and, Scranton is cool!” Jean said.

Crediting Marywood University’s “Get Your Master’s with the Masters” program with preparing her for her current position, Jean said, “the low-residency, self-directed discipline, organized and self-motivated program are all good qualities that are transferrable into the position I am currently in. The program is designed for working professionals. The expectations are very high and rigorous, but its perfect industry training to set the expectations so high.”

Jean said, “I am eternally grateful to Marywood University, as it prepared me for tremendous connections both within and outside of the program. The faculty, including Steven Brower, Ed Brodsky, and Sister Cor Immaculatum, IHM, helped us to feel a part of the Marywood community both as students and post-graduation.”

IHM Statement Opposing Zero Tolerance Immigration Policy

We, the Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, Scranton, Pennsylvania, support the U.S. Catholic Bishops’ statement that separating children from their mothers and fathers at the United States/Mexico border is immoral. Recognizing the inherent dignity of every human being and protecting the integrity of families are fundamental tenets of our faith. They are foundational for a healthy and just society.

As women religious, we raise our voices against the recent decision of the United States Attorney General that potentially strips asylum protection for women who are victims of domestic violence. We urge the Attorney General and all policy makers to enhance the potential of our asylum system to protect the right to life. Protecting the integrity of the family structure, the welfare of innocent children, and the dignity of all human life are pro-life issues that demand immediate action.

As we “serve a world crying out for justice and hungering for meaning,” we stand with those who search for new and deeper ways to live the Gospel value of love. We challenge those in leadership positions to engage in creative and fresh thinking and action that would “ bring about God’s dream for this beautiful, yet wounded world.”

“When we have difficulty recognizing the innate dignity of our fellow human beings, we can ask God to give us the grace to see it."
- Pope Francis

Marywood Audiology Clinic Assisting with Donations for Hearing Aid Charities of America

Donate your hearing aids regardless of age or condition. Healthy hearing should be enjoyed by all citizens, and for those who require assistive devices, economics shouldn’t be a barrier to hearing health.  The Hearing Aid Donation Center, a project of Hearing Charities of America, begins the process of recycling and remanufacturing hearing aids for those in need. Through the generosity of organizations and institutions throughout the nation, your donated hearing aids will help others enjoy the sounds many of us take for granted. 

Please consider dropping off your used hearing aids to the Marywood University Audiology Clinic, which will ship the aids to Hearing Aid Charities of America at no cost to you. All donations are tax deductible through Hearing Aid Charities of America, and you will receive a letter of acknowledgement from them upon receipt of your hearing aid and demographic information.  

For additional information, please contact the Marywood University Audiology Clinic at 570-348-6299.
