Encountering Faith; Transforming Life

Tornado Relief

What We're Doing

As of this writing, UD’s amazingly dedicated catering staff has prepared and delivered more than 6,600 meals as part of the region’s relief effort. The Alumni Relations Office collected many donations during Reunion Weekend, which were given to the Dayton Food Bank for distribution. Over $2,600 was collected from generous alumni at the Reunion Weekend Mass. A 35-person crew from the facilities management division, chainsaws in hand, helped clear and remove debris from neighborhoods, while countless others in the UD community dropped off donations during a campus-wide drive and quietly spent their weekends and evenings reaching out to those in need. We’ve opened up available student housing for faculty, staff, and students displaced by the storms and are helping to provide them with basic necessities for the short term.

What You Can Do to Help

As we have been meeting with and listening to members of the community regarding how we in the UD community can continue to help best, we have been hearing most of the same things as are summarized in the Dayton Daily News article below. As we move out of the stage of providing for the immediate needs of those affected by the tornadoes, we are working with local community partners to provide assistance in the long-term. Some service projects will be organized for the beginning of the fall semester so that the UD community can assist our neighbors. Watch for details as they emerge.

Acing It

Listening to chemical engineering major Josh Romo talk about his efforts to create a renewable energy-powered refrigeration technology for use in developing countries, I flashed back to my own days in college and early in graduate school. Was I that poised? That self-assured? That aware that engineering could be used to change lives?

I need to do a better job accepting the church as a grey area instead of seeing it as inherently flawed. It’s something that I need to actively work to fix, not abandon.
