Congratulations to MAYAUGUST FINKENBERG, Assistant Professor in the Department of Human Services. Mayaugust attended both recent sessions of the 2016 Summer Writing Retreat, and has submitted an article for publication from the work she completed during those workshops.


The work is titled “Giving Children the Tools to Bounce Back: Building Resiliency Skills for Children Experiencing Homelessness.” It has been submitted for publication in the journal Perspectives on Urban Education.


Attendees at the workshops benefitted from reviews of their work by our very capable consultants, Dr. Herb Childress and Dr. Jenny Shanahan, and from the opportunity to focus on their scholarly work in the serene setting of the Gramercy.


Furthermore, Mayaugust had an article published last year in the ICERI 2015 conference proceedings. Her article, “Building Resiliency Skills in Children Experiencing Homelessness: A Case Study of a Summer Learning Program,” was written in part during the Summer Writing Retreat held in 2015.


We wish you hearty congratulations, Mayaugust!
