President’s Message

DEAR HOLY NAMES UNIVERSITY COMMUNITY,

In November 2017, I was appointed interim president of Holy Names University, after having served as your vice president for finance and administration. Since then, I’ve enjoyed the opportunity to lead a university community that is both supportive and extraordinarily visionary.

As we celebrate the founding of Holy Names University 150 years ago, it is an ideal time to reflect on our responsibilities as a university today, and plan together for our future. I’d like to share some of our current initiatives with you.

Many of you have received the exciting announcement regarding our exploration of an alliance with Samuel Merritt University (SMU), in which we would share our campus, including modernized facilities, but remain distinct universities. In this issue, we’ve provided a window into the mission and the values of SMU, which are very similar to our own. I’ve been encouraged by the enthusiastic support and interest in opportunities for collaboration that we’ve received so far, and look forward to sharing more as our discussions progress.

With our digital learning initiative, we have the opportunity to offer a Holy Names education to more people, and to deliver it in a way that is responsive to the realities of life as a working adult. Employers seek digital literacy as well as collaboration skills, both online and offline, and workplace demands will continue to change. It is our job to provide all of our students with opportunities to attain relevant skills at Holy Names.

Provost Lizbeth Martin began working with our academic deans last summer on a reorganization of the University into schools that take advantage of our academic strengths and that offer students what they need for today’s careers. This new academic structure supports our belief in the value of an undergraduate educational experience grounded in the rich traditions of the liberal arts. That’s where our students develop the critical thinking, communication, and collaboration skills they will need to succeed in their working lives.

The Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary demonstrated incredible fortitude and foresight when they founded the University on the shores of Lake Merritt in 1868. And today, we continue to fulfill their mission to transform lives, shape leaders, and improve society.

Whether you are a current student, an alum, or a friend of the University, you inspire us to continue to innovate in order to serve our community as best we possibly can.

It is an honor to be your president at this exciting time in our history.

Planning for the Future

Two Universities. One Campus. Endless Possibilities.

LAST NOVEMBER, Holy Names University and Samuel Merritt University announced that they are exploring an alliance that includes sharing the Holy Names campus. Early in March, the two universities agreed to undertake a joint master plan for the campus renovation.

Holy Names and Samuel Merritt have compatible missions and values. Both universities are dedicated to academic rigor, diversity and inclusion, and community engagement—all of which are necessary to prepare today’s graduates to play active roles in their communities.

Samuel Merritt is at capacity in its current facilities in downtown Oakland and has long sought a new site for its main campus; Holy Names seeks to improve and update its existing campus. While both universities recognize

the financial benefits and operational efficiencies of working together, they also share an aspirational vision: to provide a premier educational environment for a diverse population of students and to deepen their relationship with the Oakland community.

This unique collaboration—two separately governed universities sharing a single campus and investing together in expansion and development—could be a new model for higher education.

Each university would remain independent, with distinct governing boards, faculties, administrations, and students, but the schools would take advantage of their common campus through complementary programs and resources, coordinated community service, shared facilities, such

as the library and dining areas, and enjoyment of the natural setting and open space. The universities envision a vibrant, collaborative community with expanded intellectual and social opportunities for both institutions in the spectacular setting of the Holy Names campus.

Planning for the campus renovation is in the early phase; Samuel Merritt hopes to relocate its main campus to the Holy Names site in 2023. Both universities will keep faculty, staff, students, alumni, and the Oakland community informed as they move through the process. A draft master plan for the shared campus will be available for review in late spring.

shared campus will be available for review in late spring. To learn more about the alliance,

To learn more about the alliance, visit www.sharedcampus.org.

Samuel Merritt University

Like Holy Names, Samuel Merritt University (SMU) has deep roots in Oakland. Founded in

1909, SMU is a private, not-for-profit, health sciences institution. The University offers degrees

in nursing, occupational therapy, physical therapy, physician assistant, and podiatric medicine.

In addition to its main campus in Oakland, it also has campuses in Sacramento, and San

Mateo, California.

BIG IMPACT

Samuel Merritt University, an affiliate of Alta Bates Summit Medical Center and Sutter Health,

is one of the largest sources of new registered nurses in California. The University is also the

largest provider of physical and occupational therapists, physician assistants, and podiatric

physicians in the greater East Bay.

SHARED VALUES

The mission of Samuel Merritt University is to educate students to become highly skilled and

compassionate healthcare professionals who positively transform the experience of care in

diverse communities. Like students at Holy Names, SMU students are committed to serving

both their local communities and those in need across the globe. Students and faculty

regularly provide free healthcare through volunteering at local churches, hosting free public

health clinics, and offering youth mentorship programs. SMU faculty and students also travel

internationally on medical missions to deliver supplies and provide clinical care.

A COMMON COMMITMENT TO DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION

Diversity and inclusion are integral to the SMU experience, another important commonality

with Holy Names. SMU demonstrates this commitment by:

Creating a strong sense of belonging for all campus memberswith Holy Names. SMU demonstrates this commitment by: Educating a diverse and culturally responsive healthcare

SHARPENING FOCUS AND BROADENING OPPORTUNITIES:

while providing more opportunities for student learning

and for interdisciplinary collaboration.

Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs Lizbeth Martin was at the helm of the restructuring, and believes that the focus and efficiencies that it brings encourage healthy growth. In addition to consolidating administrative functions, each school has been defining its identity, including developing mission statements and strategic plans. Advisory boards are also being formed for each school in order to support them with fundraising and program development.

HNU adopts new academic school model

IN JANUARY OF 2018, Holy Names University began educating our students within a structure of four academic schools: Business and Applied Social Sciences; Education; Liberal Arts; and Nursing, Health, and Natural Sciences. The academic school structure is common in universities and allows HNU to concentrate on our academic strengths

“The academic school structure makes us more ‘understandable’ to credentialing bodies,” says Dean of the School of Education Kimberly Mayfield. “Our operations and roles are clearer now.” Beyond the opportunity to speak a common language with our peer institutions and with outside agencies, Mayfield feels that the new structure also provides better lines of communication for faculty members. Deans can now serve as champions for faculty who are closer to the day-to-day functioning of their school.

Weekly Deans’ meetings offer opportunities to collaborate, and standardize practices. “We can now be more intentionally interdisciplinary,” says Martin. For example, Dean of the School of Business and Applied Social Sciences Charlie Sarno sought feedback from Dr. Mayfield regarding a new proposal for Diversity Studies.

Dean of the School of Nursing, Health, and Natural Sciences Edith Jenkins- Weinrub discovered that the Math and Science faculty in her school could take advantage of the anatomy and physiology assessment tool and exam that she’s found so helpful for nursing students. Says Dr. Jenkins- Weinrub, “Math and science provide an important foundation for a nurse’s education, and determine student success, so being in the same school is helpful.”

Within the School of Liberal Arts, HNU is now offering concentrations, providing an opportunity for students to take a focused set of classes in a discipline outside of their major. The concentrations, which range from 12-18 units, provide an opportunity for students to take a focused set of classes in one or more disciplines outside their major in order to complement it or to broaden their career opportunities. Dean of the School of Liberal Arts Ann Alderman has been working with students, faculty, and advisors to create these new options. For example, students passionate about Latino/a Studies suggested new courses in Pre- Columbian Mesoamerica and in Afro- Latinx Cultures. Students interested in Professional Writing requested courses in sports blogging and online editing. In the future, the school may create an Interdisciplinary Studies major that would combine several of the concentrations.

The new school structure also allows the University to be more effective in assessing student learning and achievement. Associate Dean for Institutional Effectiveness Kevin Gin says, “Instead of a one-size- fits-all model of assessment that is applied to all academic disciplines, school structures allow us to define learning that aligns with the academic disciplines and emergent pedagogy

within each school. For instance, we can evaluate educational success within Education and Nursing by focusing on a deep analysis of the professional competencies that students gain in their program, their success on licensure exams, and/or their internship field performance.”

Says Martin, “What I am most excited about is the fact that this new structure will enable us to move forward faster and adjust to the demands of the ever-accelerating higher education climate. We can move more nimbly to seize opportunities that serve students better, while maintaining a liberal arts foundation that teaches problem solving skills, communications skills, and how to become a lifelong learner. These days people have no other option than to continue learning as society changes more and more rapidly. When our students graduate, they will need the ability to teach themselves the additional skills they need down the road.”

TECHNOLOGY-ENHANCED EDUCATION

HNU’s Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL) was founded in 2014 to advance evidence-based pedagogy, technology-enriched learning, and holistic assessment. CETL is powering tech-based developments in HNU’s classrooms by awarding grants to innovative faculty members each year. Faculty have used grants to develop projects ranging from a series of basic math videos to hybrid and fully online courses.

“Today’s students use digital technologies in every part of their lives and expect their university experience to reflect this. I create multimodal writing projects for my students that incorporate text with digital images, videos, maps, and other visual elements.” says Anne Walker, assistant professor of English.

Faculty members are developing classes that blend in-person interactions—such as class discussions, group work, and lectures—with web-based or digital technologies like online course materials and assignments, videos, web conferencing, group discussion boards, websites, and blogs.

Using tech in the classroom helps keep content fresh and engaging and improves student learning and engagement. With tech-enhanced instructional formats, students can take in information at their own pace before coming to the classroom, and then use class time to process, integrate, and apply their knowledge—a flipped classroom.

Chantilly Apollon, assistant professor of biological science, has developed hybrid courses that use a flipped classroom model. In a recent classroom survey, Apollon's students said that hybrid activities help them better understand course material and retain information.

Digital Learning Initiative

COMMITTED TO BRINGING TECHNOLOGY-enhanced education to students on and off campus, Holy Names University launched the Digital Learning Initiative (DLI) this year to stimulate new, accessible, ways of learning through online coursework.

The initiative is aligned with exciting campus-wide plans to better integrate technology in the classroom, increase HNU’s educational reach, and collaborate with industry partners.

The HNU community contributed well over $1 million to the Digital Learning Initiative! Special thanks to The Fletcher Jones Foundation, Ann Reynolds, and Alan Hyman, whose leadership gifts and bold vision drove this highly successful effort.

BUILDING ON OUR MISSION

The initiative builds on HNU’s tradition of bringing quality education to non-traditional students. In 1981, HNU launched the Weekend College (WECO) for adult learners and busy professionals. The weekend program was revolutionary at the time and helped many working, adult students complete a bachelor’s degree. The DLI continues the mission of the weekend program by using modern technology to develop an accessible, fully online, bachelor’s completion program.

The campaign to raise funds for the DLI has been hugely successful thanks to the generous support of alumni and friends, and a grant of $603,250 from the Fletcher Jones Foundation, an organization dedicated to the support of private, non-profit colleges and universities in California.

“We are thankful that The Fletcher Jones Foundation supports our vision to promote innovative learning opportunities for all students,” said Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs Lizbeth Martin. “The digital learning initiative will reinvigorate an important piece of HNU’s history and mission by providing accessible, quality education for non-traditional students, in addition to HNU’s traditional population.”

HNU’s Instructional Designer Katrina Fullman says the University will develop unique online classes that blend HNU’s signature “high touch” personalized approach with new and engaging technology.

personalized approach with new and engaging technology. SETTING OUR STUDENTS UP FOR SUCCESS Students interacting

SETTING OUR STUDENTS UP FOR SUCCESS

Students interacting with different technology platforms are also gaining the skills they need to be successful in a professional setting.

“There’s a mythology that everyone under the age of 30 is a tech whiz.” says Fullman. “The reality is that there is a digital divide in our country. Those with higher socio-economic status enjoy greater access to digital devices and tools. They also have greater digital literacy. It’s our job as educators to guide students that need it across this divide.”

TILT (Technology in Learning and Teaching), a faculty senate committee, was formed in 2015 to help faculty implement tech- enhanced education and help students improve their digital literacy.

In the future, the committee plans to play an important role in implementing the DLI, as the University scales up a fully online undergraduate degree completion program.

PARTNERING WITH TECH LEADERS

HNU has partnered with a leading Silicon Valley tech company and five other small liberal arts colleges around the country to pilot a new data science class this year. Students participating in this lab class are using tools and platforms that will make them qualified for high-paying, in-demand, jobs in the tech industry.

Laura Plunkett, assistant professor for math and science, is teaching the class, “I am thrilled with how engaged and committed my students are. They are mining real datasets—child poverty rates, NBA salary data—and are responding to the challenge with enthusiasm, even though what they are learning is new and difficult. Students appreciate that they are helping future students.”

Digital learning is the now and the future. HNU is embracing technology to provide greater access to higher education, enhance learning, and provide students with skills for the 21st century workplace.

Q &A

LEADING US INTO THE FUTURE

AN INTERVIEW WITH

Michael Groener

LEADING US INTO THE FUTURE AN INTERVIEW WITH Michael Groener ON NOVEMBER 1, 2017 , Michael

ON NOVEMBER 1, 2017, Michael Groener (pronounced "Gray-ner"), who served as vice president for finance and administration at Holy Names University since the summer of 2016, was named interim president of the University.

Groener has more than 35 years of experience working at the vice president level in higher education finance and administration. He has a wealth of experience in the development and implementation of strategic plans and projects that have helped universities attain financial sustainability. Groener has drawn on his passion for challenges, glass-is-always-half-full optimism, and strong work ethic to succeed throughout his career.

On his 35+ years of experience working in higher education

I started working in higher education

just four years out of college. Dissatisfied with some of the practices at the financial institution I worked for, I accepted a position in trust administration at Claremont Colleges. I expected to stay a couple years before moving on…Twenty-seven years later, after serving as vice president for business and finance, and treasurer, I took an early retirement.

The early retirement didn’t last long.

I was offered new opportunities as

vice president for administration and finance at Occidental College, where I served for seven years, and then as CFO and vice president of finance at Drew University. In these positions, I was involved in managing many exciting campus construction projects, facility renovations, and establishing a financially beneficial joint-venture partnership.

Every institution I worked for prided themselves on the immersion of their students in the liberal arts and I became a strong believer in that throughout my career. I remain convinced that a liberal arts education is the best education a person can get.

On HNU and the HNU community

Since joining HNU in July 2016, I have

enjoyed the seemingly limitless radical hospitality. I feel very welcome here.

I

have gotten to know and respect

my Cabinet colleagues and the dedicated faculty and staff who report to them. HNU is fortunate to have an experienced community of academic and staff professionals.

I am enjoying working here more than

I have enjoyed working anywhere. This

is the first time I have been so deeply involved in the strategic direction of an institution and I find that very stimulating and very challenging. I feel fortunate and honored to take on this position at HNU.

As we celebrate our 150 year milestone and march together into HNU’s future, a future that will continue to embody the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary’s (SNJM) mission of supporting the poor and marginalized, I know the SNJMs will reaffirm their dedication and commitment, inspiring the rest of us in the HNU community to follow their good example.

On where we are headed and how we will get there

As I assume responsibilities as interim president of Holy Names University, I remain as optimistic as when I arrived two years ago.

It’s an incredibly challenging time in higher education. We are in a new economic reality. Society is questioning the value of a higher education and our challenge is to keep the holistic education of the individual alive, and provide students with clear professional and vocational direction.

HNU’s financial sustainability can be enhanced through strategic affiliations and collaborations with other institutions on academic programs and on co-curricular and support activities.

We’re in the initial stages of exploring an exciting collaboration with Samuel Merritt University. This creative alliance would improve student opportunities and help expand and modernize the Holy Names campus.

I feel my career has prepared me well to take advantage of the opportunities in front of us. This is such an exciting time at HNU and I look forward to making my own contributions to the

life of the University.

TIMOTHY WEEKES SELECTED TO PRESENT TWO RESEARCH PAPERS

Timothy Weekes, EdD, assistant professor of education was selected to present two research papers at the American Education Research Association (AERA) Annual Meeting in New York City in April 2018.

Weekes co-presented his paper, “Re-Envisioning the EdD Dissertation:

Practical Action, Visions for Leadership, and Reflections on the Journey” with the San Francisco State Educational Leadership Program Chair, Barbara Henderson. This paper builds on research Weekes completed at SF State, where he analyzed dissertations written by students from a California State University’s educational leadership program to determine if their dissertations were mostly practical, as compared to theoretical. The findings recommended that EdD programs should adopt a four-chapter dissertation format, ideal for practical dissertations.

The second paper presented, “Urban Charter School Pedagogy” was based on Weekes’ dissertation research, which investigated high performing charter schools that served low-income African-American students.

DIANNE DOBBS ‘96, MBA ‘98

Governor Brown recently appointed Holy Names University alumna Dianne Dobbs ‘96, MBA ‘98, as a Commissioner to the Board of Parole Hearings. This appointment is the next step in Dobbs’ successful career of public service and advocacy.

Dobbs was driven to make a strong public impact from a young age. Her family immigrated to the US from Jamaica to escape political upheaval, and she watched her parents work hard to build a better life for their family.

Though she was intent on going to college, she made an impulsive decision in her second year at college to drop out and join the Army. The army brought her to California, where she was stationed as a secretary at the Presidio army base. She met her former husband and moved to Louisiana, Texas, and Germany before settling down in Oakland.

Dobbs worked in various administrative and secretarial roles in the Bay Area until she realized she could only move up so far without a degree. It was time to go back to school. She enrolled in the weekend business program at HNU and earned both her bachelor’s degree and MBA.

“HNU was the best thing that happened to me,” Dobbs said. “The thing that stood out about HNU, and stuck with me, was the emphasis on making our community a better place. It was the thread that ran through all the programs and classes. The instructors challenged students to bring our responsibility to the community into the classroom.”

After going on to earn her Juris Doctor degree, Dobbs worked as an attorney for Sacramento Child Advocates and the California Department of Consumer Affairs. She took a position as Deputy Commissioner at the Board of Parole Hearings in February 2017 and was appointed as a Commissioner to the Board of Parole Hearings later that year. Dobbs feels fortunate to be part of the rehabilitation process for inmates.

MELODY HUDSON, MBA ‘12

Holy Names University alumna Melody Hudson, MBA ‘12, founded The Equal Balance Movement to fight for equal pay for women. The movement has inspired women across the nation to take action. In March 2018, Hudson shared her message with world leaders at the 2018 United Nations Global Engagement Summit in New York.

“HNU was, and is, a community committed to social justice. My education prepared me to become

a strong voice in the global community and an

advocate for women’s equal rights. I spent years working for Fortune 500 companies and Silicon Valley startups and my experience in these male-dominated industries highlighted the gender pay gap crisis. I founded The Equal Balance Movement to fight for equal pay for all women,” says Hudson.

Hudson has lived in the Bay Area for the last 20 years and is passionate about using her voice to make

a positive impact in the community. She started

working with the Women of Impact team at Girls Inc. to help empower young girls from disadvantaged backgrounds, and started a production company, Head Not the Tail to create films and branded media that address important social issues.

In 2016, she wrote and directed a documentary,

Invisible Women: Being a Black Woman in Corporate

America, that highlights the race-related issues impacting black women in the corporate workplace. Her documentary premiered at HNU and received critical praise at film festivals across the country. During the making of the documentary Hudson honed in on the issue that would become the focus of her next project—pay inequality.

The Equal Balance Movement is actively promoting support for the Lady Liberty Bill, a bill that proposes increased pay transparency in the workplace. “We can’t fight for what we don’t know.” says Hudson. “This is the first step to fighting for what is right. My work is aligned with the Sisters of the Holy Names mission to serve women and children.”

A Champion from Turkmenistan

JAHAN BAYRAMOVA is a star tennis player. She is ranked number one in her home country, Turkmenistan, and first on the HNU women’s tennis team. She is a junior and will graduate next year with a bachelor’s degree in sports management.

After finishing her bachelor’s degree, Bayramova wants to complete a graduate degree at HNU. She hopes to gain the education and skills needed to open her own tennis and sports academy. Her dream is to offer free coaching to children and inspire a love of tennis and other sports.

Bayramova’s athletic ability is surprising. At 11 months old she was diagnosed with meningitis and experienced three clinical deaths and 16 days in a comma before recovering. Her doctors said it was a miracle for her to be alive and not disabled, and they recommended that her parents emphasize physical activity to help her stay healthy. She tried swimming and dance before discovering tennis at eight years old.

Tennis quickly became a focal point in her life. At eleven, she moved to Dubai in the United Arab Emirates to train, and joined a tennis academy in Villena, Spain, two years later. She lived in Spain for the next five years, following the academy’s strict training regime and schedule. During this period, she traveled to 37 countries and represented her country on the national team in world cup events.

Bayramova felt she was destined to attend HNU after learning that two friends, one a fellow Turkmen, would also be attending. Bayramova said, “HNU is home, it feels like a family to me. Since day one the community here has been warm and friendly. My first year here was difficult, I sustained an injury that kept me from playing tennis and required a long and painful recovery. I am thankful that my physical therapist, coach, and teammates were supportive in helping me come back.”

In addition to her studies and tennis, Bayramova is the Red Cross Club president and HSAAC representative, works as a student assistant for Upward Bound, and is a self-described chocoholic.

Inspired to Educate

SHAYLAH ELLIS, an English major, lives by Ghandi’s words, “Be the change you wish to see in the world.”

Shaylah Ellis knew from an early age that she wanted to become an English teacher. Her mother, Robyn, taught her to love language and stories and encouraged her to read regularly. She developed a passion for books. In grade school, when students were asked to bring their favorite book to class she couldn’t pick just one and brought a heavy book bag full instead.

Ellis’ teachers also encouraged her passion for reading. She was continually inspired by the great teachers she came across through the years. Their powerful and positive influence on her and her peers showed her that if she wanted to make a real difference in the world she should become a teacher.

When deciding on a college to attend HNU seemed like an obvious choice. Ellis knew she wanted to stay in Oakland— the city she grew up in and loves—and that she wanted to be on a smaller campus with plenty of opportunities to get involved and lead. As a junior, Ellis has already been involved in a staggering amount of groups and clubs on campus. She is, or has been, a peer mentor,

resident assistant, sophomore class president, junior class president, community outreach coordinator and president of the Black Student Union, and vice-president of the Gay- Straight Alliance Club called PROUD. She has also created a new club to help the homeless community in Oakland. Next year, she will proudly represent the student body as president of the Associated Students of Holy Names University (ASHNU).

“By staying active in the HNU community and meeting new people I am always teaching and learning. I believe that everyone is simultaneously a teacher and a student.” Ellis said.

Ellis’ first year at HNU coincided with another major life event: she met her biological father for the first time. Unfortunately, their time together was cut short when he passed away earlier this year. This difficult loss has further motivated Ellis to make a positive impact in the world and do something great for her community.

Thanks to a generous scholarship Ellis received from Mr. and Mrs. Marinshaw, she will continue to make a positive impact at HNU and, after she graduates, in the Oakland community as a teacher.

Chairperson of the Board of Trustees HNU Wrestlemania! HOLY NAMES UNIVERSITY is pleased to announce the

HOLY NAMES UNIVERSITY is pleased to announce the appointment of Steven Borg ’86, MA, as the chairperson of the board of trustees. He succeeds outgoing chair Barbara Hood ’70 who has relocated to Morro Bay, CA, but will continue as a member of the board.

Steve has served on HNU’s board since 2008, and most recently served as vice chair, along with California Supreme Court Justice Carol Corrigan ‘70. He is a senior vice president and corporate marketing director with California Bank & Trust, a division of Zions, and has over 30 years of financial service industry experience, with a focus on marketing communications, strategy, product/channel management, and customer experience. Steve attributes his creative and strategic thinking, business leadership, and active collaborative and communicative approach to his experiences as a student at Holy Names University.

A key tenet of Steve’s core values is that we stand on the shoulders of others, and benefit from the work of those who have come before us. This is a calling to share talents and time. “It was at HNU where I was introduced to the philosophy and values of the servant-leader. It was an invitation to share one’s gifts in order to enrich the lives of others, and build better organizations that ultimately create more just and caring communities and world.”

Steve has served on and led various board committees including advancement, marketing and enrollment, mission integration, and finance. In addition to the HNU board of trustees, Steve is on the board of Oakland School for the Arts and is finance committee chair for Corpus Christi Church in Piedmont.

The University gratefully acknowledges Barbara Hood’s leadership and passionate dedication for over three years as board chairperson. Barbara has served on HNU’s board for more than a decade, and is a caring philanthropic partner to her alma mater. We thank her wholeheartedly for her generous spirit.

The most electrifying event in HNU history

THIS YEAR HNU’S WRESTLEMANIA IV raised $5,600 dollars for

Make-A-Wish Bay Area, and helped grant a wish for a young child

in Alameda County. This fundraising event, currently organized by

the student athletics committee HSAAC, has won the Make-A-Wish

Award from the NCAA Pacific West Conference for the past two years and raised a total of $11,300.

The idea for HNU’s first Wrestlemania originated in a 2015 hallway conversation between Josh Hammer, an education student, and Justin Vacca, director of housing and residence life. Hammer proposed bringing a fully choreographed and story-driven wrestling event to HNU. “I’ve always believed that school spirit and pride is of the utmost importance. How could I say no to one of my student leaders wanting to put on an event like HNU Wrestlemania?” said Vacca.

The initial idea spawned late-night training sessions and

adventures hunting down spandex costumes, and culminated in

a legendary match between Captain Hawk (Hammer) and the Evil

Boss (Vacca). When all was said and done, the inaugural event had

raised $1,200 and enough community support to continue to the present.

Over the years, HNU’s Wrestlemania has steadily grown bigger and better, thanks to the support of staff, faculty, volunteers, and donors. This support has allowed for equipment upgrades, like a professional wrestling ring and training sessions donated by Gold Rush Pro Wrestling, enhanced costumes, dramatic plotlines that extend beyond the ring, and ever more creative matches—like the first-ever mascot rumble between the Dominican Penguin and the HNU Hawk.

Hammer explains that HNU student participants are passionate about the event because they want to make a difference in a child’s life. “The event,” he says “is aligned with the SNJM core values and HNU’s mantra, ‘Enter to Learn; Leave to Serve.’”

and HNU’s mantra, ‘Enter to Learn; Leave to Serve.’” HNU Wrestlemania will be back next spring
and HNU’s mantra, ‘Enter to Learn; Leave to Serve.’” HNU Wrestlemania will be back next spring

HNU Wrestlemania will be back next spring as HAWKMANIA V.

Get ready for another thrilling ride!
