The Kevin Doyle Faculty Award for Leadership in Mission and Catholic Identity has been given to a faculty member each year since 2012 to recognize individuals who seek to go beyond their role, demonstrating the desire to nourish the University community through their work and witness. Nominees must be a current employee, must answer the question through his/her work and witness, "who we are as Benedictine and why we are special because of it in an effective, creative, interesting and successful way," must have already accomplished a recognized task or has something in process. Please consider a deserving nominee by providing a brief description of why you nominated that particular individual reflecting on the criteria listed above. Nominations should be sent to Alicia Cordoba Tait at atait@ben.edu. Nominations will be accepted through Friday, February 10.

Spring artist in residence brings Middle East to Midwest

Campus Ministry

Get engaged with those of other faiths

Campus Ministry is sponsoring an Interfaith Retreat on Saturday, February 4. Attendees will visit local houses of worship, eat delicious Halal food, serve together, and reflect on our own faith and non-faith experiences. Interfaith relationships at a Catholic university in the Benedictine tradition spring from our Catholic roots, not in spite of them. Catholics believe that all humanity forms one community and the Church, and therefore Campus Ministry, "rejects nothing of what is true and holy in [other] religions." Our Muslim Student Association and Hindu Student Association are robust and have blended into the community as all of our immigrant parents did before us.  We believe that this diversity is an opportunity for us to create a space that is a living example of how religious persons can live together, work together and admire one another. Register today.

Student Health Services

Beat the cold and flu season by washing your hands and getting a flu shot

Cold and flu viruses are easily spread.  It is important to take care of yourself and practice respiratory etiquette. You can decrease your chances of getting a cold or flu by getting a flu shot (the best way to protect yourself against the flu virus and to prevent the spread of flu); sleeping 7-9 hours per night, eating healthy, exercising and drinking lots of water; washing your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds (or use an alcohol-based cleanser when soap and water are not available); and covering your nose and mouth when coughing or sneezing. (coughing into a tissue is acceptable as long as you dispose of the tissue into the trash and wash your hands afterward). If you have a temperature of 100.5 degrees Fahrenheit or higher, you should remain at home until fever free for 24 hours without the use of fever reducing medications.

Healthy Table

Nutrient-dense avocados gaining popularity

Part of what drives the popularity of avocados is the fact that they're nutrient dense, with nearly 20 vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients. A 1 ounce serving of avocado (about one-fifth of a medium avocado) contains 50 calories, 4.5 grams of fat, 0.5 grams of saturated fat, 3 grams of monounsaturated fat and 2 grams of dietary fiber. Thanks to their high fat content, avocados help the body absorb fat-soluble nutrients like Vitamin A. Vitamin A is known for its important role in eyesight, as are the phytonutrients lutein and zeaxanthin, which can't be synthesized by the body but are found in avocados. Studies show that lutein and zeaxanthin are linked to reduced risk of cataracts and macular degeneration, which are common in the aging population. The easiest way to prepare an avocado is to cut down the center lengthwise around the seed and then hold the avocado in the palm of one hand while using the other hand to twist the halves apart. To remove the seed, slip a spoon between the seed and fruit and gently work the seed out of the fruit.

Avocados come in a self-contained bowl – all you have to do is sprinkle the flesh with some lime juice and coarse salt, then dive in with a spoon and enjoy. Other ways to use avocados are in spreads, dips, cubed, or sliced in a salad or on a sandwich, stuffed, in dressings or marinades, blended into soups and smoothies, swapped for mayonnaise in chicken or egg salad, or used in place of some oil or butter in baked goods.

Healthy Table is available for individual sessions, health fairs, group presentations for all ages and other health-related activities. Healthy Table is located in Birck Hall, Room 230.
