St. Catherine University Visit
In mid-April, Executive Director, Martha Malinski visited St. Catherine University. During her visit, she met with Molly Hazelton, Director of National Catholic Sisters Week (top picture), reconnected with ACSSJ Student Exchange Program participant and intern, Rebecca Daml to meet with the St. Kate's Admissions Team (bottom left picture) and crossed paths with student leaders wearing ACSSJ's "I am a Dear Neighbor" buttons (bottom right picture). Martha also met with President Becky Roloff, new Executive Vice President and Chief Advancement Officer, Beth Halloran, Archbishop Harry Flynn Endowed Chair in Catholic Identity & Director of the Myser Initiative in Catholic Identity, Kate Barrett and other campus colleagues. 
ACSSJ Hosts Student Learners
As an organization with limited human resources, we welcome the opportunity to engage with students who are seeking meaningful work projects. ACSSJ worked with George Washington University student and public relations professional, Annie Cull on her public relations capstone research project. She provided ACSSJ with suggestions on a strategic communications plan. Additionally, ACSSJ partnered with Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, MN to work with a marketing class taught by Cathy Harms.  A group of four students was assigned to the organization to review and give feedback on our student exchange program.  Students offered feedback on current and future effective marketing strategies for the ACSSJ Student Exchange Program.  Thank you students for your work! 
End of the Year Survey
ACSSJ would like to invite participants in our "communities of practice zoom meetings" to provide feedback in an end of the year survey.  Click here to access the survey. The survey will take 3-5 minutes to complete. Upon the completion of the survey, respondents are invited to enter a drawing to win one of multiple $5 Starbucks gift cards. In order to be eligible for the gift card drawing, your response must be submitted by June 15, 2018.
