Cabrini's student poster presentations at the Symposium

Cabrini Day – Awards

 

Students, faculty and staff have created for the University community presentations to educate and to move us in celebration of the heritage and the mission, honoring Cabrini’s namesake, Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini.

We would like to thank the faculty and staff mentors for supporting and encouraging the students to participate in the presentation event, and thanks to the students for their interesting, compelling, and creative work. The dedication and hard work was clearly evident in all the presentations.

A special thanks to the Conferences and Event Team, without their expertise and dedication, this day would not be possible: Allison Malazita, Alexis Jankowski, Felix Rodriguez Ortega and Andrew Sennett.

We have selected the prize winners not as an outcome of competition, but rather as representatives of all those who have contributed to the expression of the values of Cabrini.
