Sophomore philosophy major Kaitlin Hizny and junior philosophy major Nathan Sames have been accepted for the 2011 Yale University Bioethics Summer Internship. The internship class comprises an international group of undergraduates and graduate students (including medical and law school students) who will investigate contemporary bioethical issues.
The inaugural class of the Kentucky Entrepreneur Hall of Fame included three people with Transylvania ties. Trustee Pearse Lyons, who founded Alltech; trustee and executive committee member Warren W. Rosenthal, former CEO of Jerrico, Inc.; and the late former chairman of the board William T. Young, who created Big Top Peanut Butter, now Jif, were all inducted.
Junior psychology major Remy Miller, a veteran of the Yale University Bioethics Summer Internship, had her article, “Establishing a ‘Duty of Care’ for Pharmaceutical Companies,” chosen from 195 articles and published in the prestigious bioethics journal, The Hastings Center Report.
Transylvania’s admissions viewbook received an Award of Excellence from the Council for Advancement and Support of Education, District III.
