As Father Peter recently announced, Villanova is currently planning a process that will help guide decisions about the facilities for years to come. As part of this effort, students are invited to participate in a survey about the future of dining services at Villanova. According to the email from Student Life, student input will be instrumental in helping Dining Services in planning expanded dining options available. As an incentive for completing the survey, students will be eligible to participate in a prize drawing for a chance to win a tablet or a Food Points gift certificate. The survey takes about 10 minutes to complete and responses are due by October 30. Student’s identities will remain confidential and not be linked to responses.
In other news, Father Peter shared in an email to students how funding has been allocated for this fiscal year in support of Strategic Plan initiatives as well as highlighting some recent achievements. One of the key points was the St. Thomas of Villanova Center for the Common Good. This new Center was established as a consolidated University-wide office to centralize service experiences throughout the University. Kate Giancatarino, most recently the Director of the Center for Services and Social Justice, will serve as the inaugural Director of the center. Kate will collaborate with on- and off-campus partners to enhance community service programs, create learning engagement opportunities, and encourage reflection regarding the alignment of service and our Augustinian Catholic mission.
