Sister Mary ScullionRADNOR, Pa. (Oct. 18, 2017)—On Oct. 24, Mary Scullion, RSM, President and Executive Director of Project HOME, will speak on leadership and service during two presentations at Cabrini University.

  • The talks are free and open to the public; the first is at 3:15pm in the Grace Hall Atrium and the second is at 7pm in the Mansion Foyer. 

Scullion will visit Cabrini as an Executive in Residence. Hosted each semester by Cabrini’s Nerney Leadership Institute, the daylong residencies bring renowned leaders to campus to discuss how leadership style is impacted by a commitment to service. 

For nearly four decades, Scullion has dedicated herself to serving and advocating for people experiencing homelessness and mental illness. She is the co-founder of Women of Hope and of Project HOME, and her efforts have resulted in the right of homeless persons to vote, as well as a landmark federal court decision that affects the fair housing rights of persons with disabilities.

Cabrini’s Executives in Residence are selected for their extraordinary spiritual, emotional, and organizational leadership accomplishments.
