Writing Specialist to Provide New Kresge Center Services

The Kresge Academic Support Center is pleased to welcome Kara Bollinger as the new Writing Specialist. Kara Bollinger (MA, University of Kansas) will teach developmental writing courses, train writing tutors, and work with students in the Kresge Center. Before coming to MNU, Kara worked as the Assistant Director of the Writing Center at the New Economic School in Moscow, Russia and taught composition at Missouri Western State University.

Chapel Messages Reading Lists

MNU is a community of Christian faith as well as learning, and, therefore, weekly "Community Chapel" services are the heart of our campus. The library is partnering with chapel presenters to develop lists of resources for reading and viewing so those engaged by the presentation can seek further reflection on the topics discussed. Resources can be requested in the library. This guide is available on the library main page, under "Resource Search."
