In addition to Medaille’s participation in the White House COVID-19 College Vaccine Challenge, Medaille has announced an accompanying incentive challenge for all undergraduate, graduate and online students, in an effort to keep the College campus community safe and healthy. Medaille students can now unlock up to $30,000 in awards and scholarships by submitting COVID-19 vaccination records by August 9.
Medaille has received over $1.2 million in renewed grant funding from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), which will allow the College’s clinical mental health counseling students to continue to provide critical mental health services to medically underserved and at-risk populations within Buffalo, Rochester and the surrounding communities.
The New York Health Information Management Association has recognized 2021 Medaille College health information management program graduate Lisa Stana ’21 with its Outstanding Senior Student Award, which is presented annually based on superior scholarship, integrity, initiative, enthusiasm and demonstrated professional potential.
Medaille has named nearly 350 students to the Dean’s List for the spring 2021 semester. Undergraduate students who meet the requirements of a minimum of 12 credit hours and who earn a grade point average of 3.5 or higher for all credit hours carried during that semester are placed on the Dean’s List.
Medaille has partnered with national education consultant and expert in school turnaround strategies Dr. Marck E. Abraham to provide K-12 school leaders with a Leadership Academy this summer, focused on how to successfully bring students back to school after the COVID-19 pandemic.
For the health and safety of every student, faculty and staff member, Medaille College is taking the White House COVID-19 College Vaccine Challenge pledge and is committing to action.

Thanks to a National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) grant awarded to Medaille in 2018, the resulting project success is now able to serve as a roadmap for incorporating applied ethics into course curriculum, research projects and community-based learning activities across every academic department.
