The Jubilee Chorus Performs at The Bowery Mission

Posted by Deborah.Walker on Friday October 31, 2014

Dr. Elizabeth Swanson, School of Music assistant professor and conductor of the Nyack College Chorale and the Jubilee Chorus, announces a tremendous example of outreach in the community.

The Jubilee Chorus, whose members include several Nyack College alumni, will bring its ministry to The Bowery Mission Saturday, Nov. 1 at 5:00 pm to provide a chapel service to the homeless.

The Bowery Mission has been a catalyst for New Yorkers to help the homeless since 1879, responding to their immediate needs: food, shelter, clothing, and medical care. The residential recovery program addresses deeper needs for spiritual wholeness, life and job skills training, and addiction recovery.

NOV. 5-6: Dr. Kevin Danaher is Fall 2014 Nyack 's Scholars Symposium Plenary Speaker

Posted by Deborah.Walker on Friday October 31, 2014

The Nyack College Center for Scholarship and Global Engagement (CSGE) will hosts its Sixth Annual Nyack Scholar’s Symposium, “In Search of Global Sustainability.” The two-day event will be held on Wednesday, November 5 at the New York City campus, 2 Washington Street in Manhattan and on Thursday, November 6 at the Rockland County campus at 1 South Boulevard in Nyack.

The plenary speaker will be Dr. Kevin Danaher, a co-founder of Global Exchange (1988), co-founder of FairTradeUSA (1997), founder and executive co-producer of the Green Festivals (2001), and founding executive director of Friends of SF Environment (2012). Described by The New York Times as the “Paul Revere of globalization’s woes,” Dr. Danaher’s analytical expertise, sense of humor, and blunt eloquence make him an exceptionally dynamic speaker. He has written or edited 11 books and co-authored The Green Festival Reader: Fresh ideas from Agents of Change (PoliPoint Press, 2011) with Alisa Gravitz. With Shannon Biggs and Jason Mark he co-wrote Building the Green Economy: Success Stories from the Grassroots (PoliPoint Press, 2010).  Dr. Danaher’s plenary address will address, “The merging of spirituality and science can save humanity form itself.”

CSGE director, Dr. Vilma Balmaceda says, “We anticipate that our moderators and responding panelists on both campuses will stimulate a dynamic scholarly dialogue. It is our hope that this event will continue to go beyond the boundaries of our campus community and grow our audiences to include the communities and neighbors near our New York campuses in Manhattan and in Rockland County.

The Symposium will also include breakout sessions featuring presentations from Nyack College and Alliance Theological Seminary faculty and students.
