Historian Verge Gillam, familiarly known as Brother Sage, offered his life story to Saint Mary’s students Thursday in order to challenge them to extend themselves culturally and to ask questions. “None of you will approach me, but I want to know each and every one of you individually,” Gillam said. “I come from the African-American Experience. Most Africans in this country come from a peculiar institution called slavery.” At the lecture, titled “The Value of Otherness,” Gillam said his mother briefly attended Wilberforce University before dropping out to for financial reasons. After three kids and a series of divorces, she returned to school. Her degree allowed her to teach in New Jersey, Spain and Germany. Once she got her graduate degree from Ball State University, she went on to teach in Korea and Turkey. “After everything, my mother came away from her experience speaking six different languages,” Gillam said. “When she died, she had artifacts from 37 different countries in her room.” Gillman said he pursued an upper-level education for non-intellectual reasons. “I was a college graduate because I wasn’t going to Vietnam,” he said. “All my friends came back [from the Vietnam War] either crazy or dead.” Gillam said his daughter attended the University of Cincinnati, and if his granddaughter attends a university, she will be a fourth-generation college graduate. “That’s not something many people can say,” Gillam said. After sharing his family’s story, Gillam examined the ideas of otherness and sameness. The former causes people to proceed with caution, while the latter is ‘safe,’ he said. He asked the audience to participate in an exercise about otherness. He read off a list of attributes and preferences that differentiated attendees from each other. “I learned that in some way, somehow, we are all different,” Roger Cox, an employee at Memorial Hospital of South Bend, said after the exercise. “I really feel like otherness is the key to world peace.” Catherine Pittman, a professor of psychology at the College, said Saint Mary’s aims to increase its diversity. “It’s something we think is very important,” she said. “If you look at our community, it’s not very diverse compared to South Bend or Indiana or [North] America. We are preparing our students to be leaders and change agents in the world, and the world is a lot more diverse than Saint Mary’s. Gillam said people should associate otherness with individuality and exceptionality. He added that sameness can become repetitive. “The happiness of your life depends on the quality of your thoughts,” he said. “Go out and meet someone not from Saint Mary’s. Establish a rapport with them that allows you to step beyond. “I don’t think you can develop wisdom if you don’t do something out of the ordinary. Experience difference.” Contact Rebecca O’Neill at firstname.lastname@example.org
The family of a former Notre Dame freshman is suing the University for their son’s catastrophic injuries and for encouraging “a quasi-fraternity atmosphere,” according to a lawsuit filed Tuesday in St. Joseph County.The Observer previously reported on the student’s head injury in January of 2019.On Jan. 27, 2019, Sean Tennant fell approximately 30 feet over a stairwell balcony from the second floor of Sorin Hall and hit the concrete floor inside the dorm, where Tennant was a student-resident. The fire department responded to the call around 2 a.m. to provide medical assistance. Claire Rafford | The Observer Sorin Hall, constructed in 1888, was the first designated residential hall for students.As a result of the fall, Tennant suffered a traumatic brain injury and will suffer from several disabilities and deficits for the rest of his life, according to court documents. The plaintiffs are demanding a jury trial for “compensatory and punitive damages against Defendant,” the University of Notre Dame Du Lac.The plaintiffs argue that the structures of Sorin Hall “including but not limited to its stairwell and balcony railings are not maintained to current building code, have not been updated to incorporate modern safeguards and are not maintained in manner that is safe and consistent with their reasonably anticipated and/or known uses.”As a result of the University’s negligence in the operation of Sorin Hall, the plaintiffs said in the court documents Tennant suffered severe injury.Sorin Hall was constructed in 1888 and was the first designated residence hall on Notre Dame’s campus. The hall houses 143 male residents a year.The complaint alleges alcohol was being consumed and served freely inside the residence hall, where a mix of legal age upperclassmen and underage students reside. The complaint stated “the Defendant has long known, and actively encouraged, a quasi-fraternity atmosphere amongst the student-residents of Sorin Hall.”According to court documents, the plaintiffs said the Sorin Hall community culture includes “regularly drinking alcoholic beverages by students who are underage and of legal drinking age.”Additionally, the complaint asserts the rector of Sorin Hall Fr. Robert Loughery was not in the building at the time of the incident but was aware of the party in the dorm and failed to take precautions to ensure the safety of the residents.According to a Chicago Tribune article, attorney Peter Flowers of Illinois said he would not disclose Tennant’s blood-alcohol content which was taken later at the hospital.The complaint demands a trial by jury for a “judgment for compensatory and punitive damages against Defendant,” including interests, costs and “proper relief.”Paul Browne, vice president for public affairs and communications, declined to comment on the case.“The University has yet to be served with the complaint and reserves comment,” he said in an email.Tags: lawsuit, negligence, Sorin Hall

18SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr One of the very first mantras I learned when I became a full time resident of credit union land was that credit unions really know their members. The implication, of course, is that credit unions make better loans than their commercial banking counterparts because of these personal relationships. But does the personal touch really make a difference?Recently, University of Kansas business professor Robert D. Young reported on findings based on a ten year review of Small Business Administration (SBA) loans made by banks. His findings suggest that the answer is a resounding yes.Young and his colleagues reviewed indexes of social capital, which are generally measures of how integrated people are in their community such as participation in religious and civic groups. They found that “SBA loans between banks and borrowers in high-social-capital towns are 20% to 25% less likely to default than SBA loans made where social capital is low.” The theory is that in tight knit communities it is easier for lenders to gather information about borrowers and borrowers tend to be a better risk. His findings also suggests that social indexes are actually a better indicator of default risk than are a business’ credit score. A couple of quick points about this research. continue reading »
A little more than a year ago, we wrote about our “Sunny Forecast for Member Business Lending.” With anticipated double-digit growth, we encouraged credit unions to invest in the competency of their lenders and their MBL program. Fast forward to 2017. You’ve done everything right to build a quality commercial lending portfolio and take advantage of market opportunities:You’ve trained your lenders.You’ve established policies and practices that allow you to make loans at an acceptable level of risk.You’re cross-selling additional member business services.You’re working with the business’s principals and employees on their personal needs.And, you’re reaping the rewards in terms of multiple successful, long-term, mutually beneficial commercial relationships. continue reading » 4SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr
