An Era Ends . . . but the Journey Continues

After 14 years at the helm of Georgian Court University, President Rosemary E. Jeffries ’72, RSM, Ph.D., is stepping down in June 2015. She takes a walk down memory lane in the 2014 Fall/Winter Edition of GCU Magazine, but we still had more questions!

5 Questions with Sister Rosemary


GCU Magazine: Looking back, what advice would you give to the Sister Rosemary of 2001?

SRJ: Be clear about the priorities of your own life and make space for them. I have a commitment to a religious community and my own spiritual journey. The days, weeks, and months can get busy, and you may defer what’s important to you. Don’t. You have to…

Georgian Court University Hosts Science, Math Programs for Girls

GCU and corporate partners cultivate next generation of STEM fans

Give a girl and problem and she’s likely to solve it—especially if she happens to be one of several participants in Georgian Court University’s recent STEM programs for young women in middle and high school. The university just wrapped its 2014 GIST (Girls Involved in Science and Technology) program, which drew about 32 students in 6th-12th grades for a week of chemistry, math, aeronautics, forensics, and more. 

“This is all about making learning fun,” said Dr. Sarita Nemani, a mathematician and chair of Georgian Court’s department of mathematics. “Even when students are working with sticks to evaluate triangles, they don’t realize they are really re-thinking everything they already know about geometry. The same goes for participants taking a hike across campus; they’re learning about the heart and about biology.”
