“A scholarship fund has been established at Pace University for the late Sydney Small, who ran WWRL (1600 AM) and was a lifelong advocate for minority voices in the mainstream media.

Small died Aug. 8 while cycling in Central Park. He was 72.

The Brooklyn native founded the National Black Network (NBN) in 1972. NBN evolved into Access 1, which owns WWRL and other radio stations.

He was a founding member of the National Association of Black Owned Broadcasters (NABOB) and a prominent spokesman for minority media ownership.

When ratings for minority stations dropped under Artbitron’s new Portable People Meter (PPM) system, he was among the station owners asking Arbitron to reassess the system.

He also helped press Madison Avenue to give minority media a greater share of advertising dollars and led NABOB’s efforts to get federal distress loans for minority broadcasters threatened by the recession.

Required Service: Media Advisory on Pace Pioneering Decision

Service here is linked to classes from math to media. Subject areas run from holiness to hemlock; service venues from gritty urban courts and AIDS centers to the church that wanted help with a museum about work done there by the first American-born Roman-Catholic saint, Mother Seton. Students have to analyze and reflect on the implications of what they are doing.

Required Service for College Students

You may have seen the Sunday op-ed in the New York Times calling for campuses to consider a “service requirement for graduation.” It’s by the novelist Dave Eggers, author of “A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius.” He says “some” colleges now do this.

Indeed. I’m writing just to make sure you know that a year ago Pace University was among the few major universities to make community service a full requirement for all students.

If you follow up on the trend to service requirements, or on the still-increasing trend for students to do collegiate service in general, we’ve got not only examples, but also evaluations.

Service here is linked to classes from math to media. Subject areas run from holiness to hemlock; service venues from gritty urban courts and AIDS centers to the church that wanted help with a museum about work done there by the first American-born Roman-Catholic saint, Mother Seton. Students have to analyze and reflect on the implications of what they are doing.

The requirement reflects Pace’s encouragement of participatory citizenship under President David A. Caputo, a Yale-trained political scientist who took over in July 2000. Additional impetus comes from Pace’s role as one of the 10 private colleges and universities that a year ago founded Project Pericles, a nationwide, nonprofit consortium of campuses that are increasing their students’ readiness for participatory citizenship. The project was envisioned and initially funded by the foundation set up by the industrialist and philanthropist Eugene M. Lang, creator of the “I Have a Dream” project.

“ALTERNATIVE SPRING BREAK” TAKES PACE UNIVERSITY STUDENTS
TO SERVICE WEEK IN WASHINGTON, D.C. AND VOLUNTEER DAY IN JAMAICA

NEW YORK, March 11, 2004 — Seventy-nine students from New York’s Pace University will donate a day of their Jamaican spring break vacation to participating in a service project at the Whitehall Basic School in Negril, Jamaica on Tuesday, March 16.

At the same time, in Washington, DC, 12 other Pace student volunteers will work from Tuesday through Friday on transforming the once-derelict William Syphax School in Southwest DC into 12 affordable, loft style condominiums and 29 affordable townhouses, in a project directed by Manna, Inc., a nonprofit community development organization.

The students are part of a campus trend to “alternative spring breaks” that respond to and encourage student interest in community activities instead of, or in addition to, traditional spring break recreation.

In both cases, the University is subsidizing some of the costs so that students from a full cross-section of Pace’s highly-diverse student body can afford to participate.

Washington: Project Pericles

In Washington, from March 16 through the 19th, instead of sleeping in, the students will set forth from their youth hostel at 8:15 a.m., donning hard hats for construction-site cleanup and landscaping. On Monday the 15th they will spend the day on Capital Hill, learning about connections between hunger, homelessness, service and the political process during discussions in the offices of
·Senators Charles Schumer and Hillary Rodham Clinton and
·Representatives Eliot Engel, Sue Kelly, Nita Lowey, Carolyn Maloney and Gerald Nadler.

Their project was organized by the Pace chapter of Project Pericles, a two-year-old consortium of ten campuses that actively encourage their students to be active citizens. The University’s Center for Community Outreach also is backing the project, along with the Provost’s Office, Office of Student Life, and Dyson College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.

Jamaica: Blazin’ Entertainment Activities Team

In Jamaica, Pace students and staff members will spend March 16 with Jamaican students and teachers. In cooperation with local professionals, they will paint the entire exterior of the one room, 150-student school, install a fence, read to the children from books they have collected to bring with them, and learn local hand-slapping games and songs. The students will arrive in Jamaica on Saturday March 13.

The Jamaica initiative was organized by a student group on Pace’s suburban campus in Pleasantville called Blazin’ Entertainment Activities Team. They too are being supported by the University’s Center for Community Outreach, plus its Center for Student Development and Campus Activities, the Jamaican Consulate in New York and the Jamaican Ministry of Industry and Tourism. If you are wondering what bingo we are talking about, have a look at the list of top 10 us bingo sites from here.

Giving back, learning more. Guinevere Welch, a representative from the Center for Community Outreach, typified the views of many who have worked with both groups of students when she spoke of their positive response to the Jamaica trip.

“The students are very excited because not only will they get to spend their spring vacation in a place as wondrous as Jamaica, but they have also taken the time to give something back and learn more about the world in which they live,” Ms. Welch said.

Janet Madden, Community Relations Officer at the Jamaican Consulate in New York, lauded the students’ effort.

“It is inspiring to see that these students have decided to spend some of their vacation involved in community-building endeavours,” Mrs. Madden said.

Pace is a comprehensive, independent university committed to opportunity, teaching and learning, civic involvement and measurable outcomes. It has eight campuses, including downtown and midtown New York City, Pleasantville, Briarcliff, White Plains (a graduate center and law school), and a Hudson Valley Center at Stewart International Airport near Newburgh, N.Y.
