At a spring semester Strong By Design-a-thon, Marymount interior design students engaged the end-user of a design solution at the outset of research. They asked disabled veterans, caretakers and their advocates to help  nd solutions to the challenges disabled vets face daily. Those with intimate knowledge of veterans’ issues served as experts and mentors to student design teams during the weekend event.
Assistant Professor, Interior Design
“Students engage in empathy exercises—trying to open a door while in a wheelchair, for example— along with problem solving, prototyping
and marketing strategies that are judged by professional practitioners. Our goal is to use design thinking to go beyond stereotypes and build compassionate solutions from a broad group of community members.”
Part of Marymount’s popular Global Classroom Series, “The Principles of Criminal Investigation”course took Criminal Justice students
to Liverpool, England, for a weeklong international study abroad experience. The students worked simulated crime scenes and visited state-of-the-art training facilities to broaden their understanding of international criminal investigations.
Department Chair, Criminal Justice
“Marymount’s Criminal Justice program gives our students solid preparation and support for real world challenges like juvenile justice, cyber crime, digital terrorism, race and ethnic relations, social justice, media impacts, and best practices
in criminology and corrections. Semester-long study and spring break intensives give them relevant cultural opportunities in international cities like Amsterdam, Dublin, Prague and London."
