More than 105 million people have seen an episode of Orange Is the New Black. Throughout the series, characters were exposed to the realities that exist within the prison system: privatization, funding, inequalities, corruption, discrimination, violence, racism, living conditions, safety and more. Those themes are the focus of Dr. Jill McCorkel’s Punishment & Society course.
Villanova hosted an ‘idea hackathon,’ bringing together interdisciplinary teams of students from across the University’s schools and colleges to examine poverty as a global epidemic and develop design solutions for tackling the issue using blockchain technology. Student projects explored a range of ideas, from solutions to feed the poor to building credit and streamlining government programs.
The digital edition of the Summer 2019 Villanova Magazine is now available. The cover story talks about the recipients of the O’Toole Family Presidential Scholarship, and the dedication and expertise of the O’Tooles and the team of faculty and staff that support the program.
