Congratulations, Dr. Woznica
By: Timea Horvath
Simpson University would like to congratulate Prof. Mirek Woznica for successfully completing his Ph.D. and receiving the title of doctor.
Professor Woznica spent months working outside of the classroom on his dissertation called, The practice of education and politics of culture: Richard Rorty’s pragmatic and cultural landscapes. This summer all of his effort paid off as he completed his degree at the University of Warsaw, which in the U.S. News and World Report ranking placed second among all universities in Poland.
Seeing our professor’s achievement makes us feel incredibly proud and inspired. In 2016 he also published a book called A Map for the Soul. . . Compassionate Journey in which he shares his teachings about spiritual and personal growth. It is available in both English and Polish.
We are honored to have such a passionate and dedicated professor here at Simpson University. The next time you see him wandering around campus, we highly recommend you congratulate him in person. May he feel how grateful we all are to have him!
“A Weekend to Remember”
By: Noah Bryerton
Simpson University hosted its inaugural “Presidential Summit” Sept. 15-18 at Montage Laguna Beach. The event was attended by 120 alumni and donors.
The Summit raised over 1.6 million dollars for Simpson University. This money will be put towards the new business technology and engineering building, events center, and student scholarship.
Special guests included New York Times bestselling author Bob Goff, Food Network chef and author Simon Majumdar, and “The Voices of Rock Radio.”
Attendees at the summit were treated to world-class amenities and food. Each special guest hosted a session for attendees to enjoy. These sessions ranged from a rock-n-roll concert to hearing about Christ’s love for us to enjoying a three-course meal.
This was a special weekend for so many reasons. Dr. Hall and his leadership team plan to make the Summit an annual event.
