Alum’s Exhibit of Sexual Assault Survivor Stories Debuts at NMC April 1-30

Posted on Wed, Apr 04, 2018

According to U.S. Department of Justice, every 98 seconds another American is sexually assaulted. And, it is likely that over the course of a lifetime, one in every six women in this country will be the victim of an attempted or completed rape.

Teresa Prince Conway, a Nebraska Methodist College alum and adjunct faculty member, has set out to change that. Her compelling photo exhibit, called “Survivor Stories,” debuted at NMC on April 1. April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month, and the exhibit is one of the awareness activities on campus.

Teresa’s desire to create the exhibit came from her own personal experience.

“I was a junior in college studying photojournalism when I was raped,” she explained.

Honoring the Retirement and Return of Dr. Lin Hughes

Posted on Tue, Mar 27, 2018

But Lin is far too high-energy and deeply dedicated to NMC to retire for long. Instead, she is taking the required minimum of 120 days off the employee roster — and not one day more — before returning as an adjunct professor this August.

Now, in Lin’s 28th year as a member of our nursing faculty and her 46th year as a nurse, the NMC family knows it is impossible to measure the full scope of her contributions to students, faculty, our holistic culture and the nursing profession overall.
