Highlights from BYU colleges


College of Nursing

BYU assistant professor Bret Lyman and nursing students Michael Scott and Riley Mattson received the DAISY and DAISY in Training awards, respectively. The DAISY Foundation — an acronym for Diseases Attacking the Immune System — awards students and faculty twice a year, commending nurses for their kindness and service to their patients.

Lyman was nominated by his students who praised him for going above and beyond teaching and truly practicing the Healer’s art, looking to Christ as his inspiration. A former EMT and firefighter, Scott decided to join the nursing program after seeing the love nurses had toward their patients. Students nominated Scott for his compassion, willingness to serve and cheery demeanor. Mattson was nominated by her peers for her Christlike light, genuine interest in the needs of others and her contagious smile.

The BYU College of Nursing is proud to have such compassionate people in their program, whether they are pursuing nursing or currently practicing in the field.

Marriott School of Business

BYU and the BYU Marriott School of Business were awarded a $1.14 million grant from the U.S. Department of Education. This grant allows BYU to continue acting as one of only 15 Centers for the International Business Education and Research (CIBER), a program created by Congress to increase the nation’s international business relations and competitiveness. Not only will the grant go toward 70 initiatives highlighted in BYU’s CIBER proposal — including study abroad programs, national case competitions and international business conferences — but will fund research as well. The Marriott School of Business expressed gratitude to be apart of CIBER and hopes to further their dedication to international business and research.

Four new displays have recently been completed to highlight the mission of the David O. McKay School of Education. The first display depicts David O. McKay’s three Cs — citizenship, conduct and character. The second focuses on the question, “Do I feel called to be a teacher?” by highlighting the role of educators as a calling to serve and help students grow intellectually. The third display promotes the David O. McKay School of Education’s history and the work they have done to improve. The fourth mural portrays the Savior, urging educators to teach like Christ by focusing on individual needs, asking inspired questions and speaking in terms their students will understand.

Harold B. Lee Library

The Harold B. Lee Library will be showing two more films this year as part of the Library Film Series. On Nov. 9, Cary Grant fans can enjoy “North by Northwest.”
