The Association of Catholic Colleges and Universities extended a great privilege to Mercy College Faculty Dr. Bud Marr and Bo Bonner when, through coordination with Mercy College President Barbara Decker, the two were asked to contribute on the white paper “Diversity in Healthcare Professions: A Catholic Higher Education Imperative.”
Dr. Michael Galligan-Stierle, President of the ACCU asked Bonner and Marr to add a Theological angle to the paper, in addition to the Sociological and Policy insights made by the other co-authors. “It is a great honor to be included in such an endeavor” said Bonner, “and our experiences here at Mercy College helped us imagine what insights we hoped to add to the paper.”
Dr. Marr pointed out that any time faculty at Mercy College can participate in the larger efforts of Catholic Higher Education, especially regarding the Health Sciences, the decision to get involved is easy—our mission informs such interactions.
