Campus Murals: 

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

This year, we commissioned women artists to create six original works for the murals that adorn the sides of Hess Hall, North Hall, MacDermid Hall, and the Traurig Library building.  The artists shared works based on the themes of diversity, equity & inclusion, environment, love, and technology.  We’re excited to share more about these artists and where they got the inspiration for their creations.

In embracing the diversity/equity/inclusion theme, my intention was to place people at the heart of the artwork. Within one panel, I meticulously crafted a tapestry of individuals, each representing a variety of genders, cultures, and personalities, all united in their passionate advocacy for their beliefs. Transitioning to the second panel, the imagery shifts to depict people converging through a physical connection—holding hands and touching—to symbolize the profound essence of inclusion. 

“I believe that when you stop learning you start dying. It’s key to life.” At 79-years-old online student Barbara Mahler became our newest graduate, completing her Bachelor’s Degree in Communications and Media Studies in August, and graduating Magna Cum Laude from the Honors Program.  Watch the WFSB segment which aired at 6 p.m. newscast on September 14.
For Mahler, her visit on September 14 was her first time on campus and meeting her student success advisor Valerie Lugo and Program Chair Kellie Lambert, who was also one of her professors, in person.  Mahler, who is moving from New Jersey to New York, wanted to see the campus.  The team in the School of Arts & Sciences celebrated her in fine style!

Hispanic Heritage Month
The Flag of Hispanicity

“The Flag of Hispanicity” is a symbol which represents the common past and indivisible future of the Hispanic American peoples. Designed by Ángel Camblor, a captain of the Uruguayan Army, the flag was first raised in October 1932.   The white background symbolizes peace and purity. The Purple color of the crosses represents the Spanish language and comes from the ancient use of this color in the lion of the Kingdom of León’s flag.

Each year, we raise the flag to celebrate the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central and South America.  We hope you’ll join us at 3:00 p.m. on Monday, September 18, 2023 outside of Torrance and Hess Halls as we raise the flag this year.

Men’s Soccer Team Supports Team Impact

Post University’s men’s soccer team and coach Ted Haley added a new member, signing Banfana Ndlove, a 9-year-old from Naugatuck, through Team Impact! Team Impact connected Banfana and Post Eagles. He was formally introduced through an official signing and celebrated by the team.

Banfana will attend Eagles practices, games, team dinners, and events as an official team member.  In addition to Banfana’s parents, his nurse, and current and former schoolteachers attended the ceremony with his new team.

The signing ceremony represented a commitment to excellence in athletics, character, and heart. All team members signed a soccer jersey with emblazoned the number 8, Banfana’s favorite number.

Happy Constitution Day!
