Be Seen. Be Heard.
Stand Up for
Social Justice

The Communications Department will be holding its first annual Sister Anne Paye Student Media Competition in Spring 2012. All students in grades 10th through 12th may enter the competition. Submissions are due September 19, 2011 through January 6, 2012. All applicants are invited to the awards ceremony and reception at Misericordia University Friday, April 20, 2012. The media competition will be judged by media professionals from around the area as well as Communications professionals from Misericordia University.

Sister Anne Paye

Sister Anne Paye served as the Dean of Women and worked alongside the student newspaper and the student art and literary magazine at MU. She drew attention to the lack of housing for homeless women and children and made it her mission to create the Catherine McAuley Center in 1984. She proved that social issues can be brought into the light and resolved. We believe students have the understanding to create media works that communicate issues of social significance and change.
