North Park Theological Seminary Awards Master's Degree to Stateville Correctional Center Resident Scholars

North Park University School of Restorative Arts | June 17, 2022

North Park University School of Restorative Arts held a graduation ceremony at Stateville Correctional Center (Stateville) for 28 resident scholars in honor of earning their Master of Arts in Christian Ministry (MACM) from North Park Theological Seminary. Two students began the program inside Stateville and upon release completed their studies on North Park's campus. The graduation was the first of its kind in an Illinois Department of Corrections facility and represents a profound commitment to liberative and restorative education. Commencement speaker Cook County State's Attorney Kimberly M. Foxx, who was invited to speak by the students, acknowledged that while she was not the obvious choice, identified with the graduates in powerful ways saying, "I am you." The inaugural graduating School of Restorative Arts (SRA) cohort brings together free and incarcerated students to study in the shared Stateville on-site space – unifying a transformative learning experience for all. In his remarks during the June 15th ceremony, SRA inside student Jamal Bakr said, "We are receiving our Master's degree because our potential is not defined by our worst mistakes. Let today's event be an example of what happens when opportunities are created, potentials are unignored and complete restoration is always the aim of justice." This one-of-its-kind Master's degree offered in prisons throughout Illinois, prepares individuals for ministries of restoration in contexts impacted by violence and generational trauma through non-violent communication and trauma-informed healing. The four-year degree is offered to over 100 students at Stateville and Logan Correctional Centers. Many graduates shared how they'd grown throughout the program. "I'm bringing the knowledge of my degree to all those I meet in this prison, this knowledge is so badly needed here," said William Jones. The faith-filled celebration was attended by North Park President, Mary K. Surridge and seminary faculty. "Some might doubt that love and beauty could be so evident in such a dreary setting, but all who were present witnessed how creative collaboration, belief in the transformative power of God's Spirit, and tenacious commitment to justice can accomplish what might first appear to be impossible," said North Park's Rev. Dr. Dennis R. Edwards. ABOUT NORTH PARK UNIVERSITY North Park University is city-centered, intercultural, and emerging as the model for Christian higher education in 21st Century America.

XLerateHealth, University of Kentucky to Expand Entrepreneurship & Commercialization Programming via Digital Learning Platform

XLerateHealth | August 18, 2022

XLerateHealth (XLH), a national healthcare accelerator based in Louisville, KY, in partnership with the University of Kentucky (UK) through UK Innovate, has been awarded the first phase of a potential $3.25M multi-year grant by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) through the IDeA Regional Entrepreneurship Development (I-RED) Program (Award Number UT2GM148083). The purpose of the grant is to develop and launch a suite of experience-based entrepreneurship and commercialization training tools to address the needs of academic institutions across the Southeast U.S., including faculty, researchers, innovators and students. XLH and UK have led this effort since 2018 through the XLerator Network, an NIH-funded partnership to increase the commercialization of promising life science and healthcare innovations in 25 academic institutions across the Southeast Institutional Development Award (IDeA) states of Kentucky, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, West Virginia and Puerto Rico. This NIH I-RED award will allow XLerator Network participants to build on prior work and develop, launch, test and validate entrepreneurship education and training tools that foster the translation of promising biomedical discoveries and technologies from research laboratories into commercial products “Based on our years of experience training biomedical entrepreneurs, we believe that effective entrepreneurial pedagogy is a combination of four elements: 1) informed high-quality educational content, 2) mentorship and coaching from experienced domain experts and entrepreneurs, 3) access to experienced talent to build a cohesive team, and 4) access to capital to fund the successful refinement of the technology/product and its commercial launch into the marketplace,” said Jackie Willmot, CEO of XLerateHealth. “We are proud to continue this collaboration and grateful to the NIH I-RED program for its support in bringing these resources to academic and clinician innovators.” “Through the XLerator Network, our partnership with more than two-dozen academic institutions in the Southeast IDeA region has created a framework for learning, testing, and applying entrepreneurship and commercialization best practices to advance the most promising health innovations in the region,” Ian McClure, Associate Vice President for Research, Innovation and Economic Impact at the University of Kentucky. “UK Innovate is thrilled that the NIH I-RED program will now catalyze that foundation and generate new education, mentorship, coaching, and commercialization tools for those partners and the region. As the academic lead institution for this new award, we are proud of this partnership and thank the NIH I-RED program leadership for its support.” Ian McClure, Associate Vice President for Research, Innovation and Economic Impact at the University of Kentucky About XLerateHealth (XLH) The XLerateHealth (XLH) mission is to cultivate and grow impactful healthcare innovation in the Midwest, Southeast and other areas of the country where great innovation often goes unrecognized and underfunded. Founded in 2012, XLH supports the development of healthcare innovation through its healthcare accelerator, which helps start-up founders commercialize their business and attract funding. XLerateHealth also leads the efforts to build and operate the XLerator Network, an NIH-funded partnership with Academic Lead University of Kentucky along with 24 other academic institutions in the Southeast. The objective of this work is to increase the commercialization of promising life science and healthcare innovations in the NIH-designated Southeast Institutional Development Award (IDeA) states.
