It is structured on an unlimited use subscription model for either 30 or 90 days, and subscribers can take a practice exam of 100 multiple choice questions or smaller mini-quizzes focused on individual fundraising knowledge domains. Practice exam feedback is delivered for each of the six fundraising knowledge domains tested in the CFRE certification exam.According to CFRE International, the questions used in the practice exam are similar in style and difficulty to the questions on the CFRE certification exam to allow fundraising professionals to gain familiarity and confidence with how questions are presented on the CFRE certification exam as well as with the overall level of difficulty they should expect when they take the exam.Jeff Stanger, Education Resources Manager for CFRE International said:“The practice exam is a great tool for people who struggle with traditional tests or haven’t taken a test in years. It will get them comfortable with a question style and degree of difficulty that is similar to what they will encounter on the CFRE certification exam.”Information on the subscriptions available for the practice exam is available on the CFRE International site.

Social enterprise solutions to long-term poverty and research into malnutrition among Australian indigenous people are the two topics that will be the focus of two Harvard students receiving inaugural Anne Wexler Australian-American Studies Scholarships in Public Policy. One scholar from Australia and one from the United States will be chosen annually for this prestigious new award.Caroline Adler, a master’s student in public policy at the Kennedy School of Government, is the inaugural Australian winner. Her research explores innovative workforce development policy interventions, and her goal is to develop social enterprise solutions to help urban Australians who experience long-term poverty to gain work skills and achieve increased economic opportunities.Katherine Thurber ’11, a student in social/cognitive neuroscience and global health/health policy, is the inaugural U.S. winner of the award. Thurber will use her scholarship to undertake a master of philosophy degree at the Australian National University’s National Centre for Epidemiology and Population Health, studying malnutrition among Aboriginal Australians.The scholars were presented with their certificates April 18 at the Australian ambassador’s residence in Washington, D.C.
Read Full Story Radcliffe Gymnasium was filled on Monday afternoon when Lizabeth Cohen, dean of the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study and Howard Mumford Jones Professor of American Studies, delivered her inaugural dean’s lecture, “Place, People, and Power: City Building in Postwar America,” to a crowd of faculty, students, and friends of the institute.Harvard University President Drew Faust, who established the tradition of inaugural dean’s lectures when she was the founding dean of the Radcliffe Institute, introduced Cohen and briefly described her award-winning books. “Liz Cohen has crossed traditional disciplinary boundaries in ways that have brought fresh insight to some of the most important issues of our time,” she said. “What an important contribution for a dean of the Radcliffe Institute to have made.”An expert on 20th-century American social and political history, Cohen spoke about her current book project, Saving America’s Cities: Ed Logue and the Struggle to Renew Urban America in the Suburban Age, which explores the history of post-World War II urban renewal in Boston, New York, and New Haven through the work of Ed Logue. Logue, who the Washington Post titled “the Master Rebuilder” in 1967, remains well-known for an urban redevelopment career that spanned nearly half a century.
Throughout the fall semester, the “Show Some Skin” production team will present videos of past shows followed by group discussions, according to team member and junior Geraldine Mukumbi. Videos of the first-ever production, entitled “The Race Monologues,” will kick off the series Wednesday in the Andrews Auditorium of Geddes Hall at 7:30 p.m. The 2013 production, “It’s Complicated,” will be shown and discussed Oct. 30, and Nov. 13 will feature the 2014 production, “Be Bold.”Mukumbi said the performances originated from the desire to spark conversations about diversity on campus.“A group of people came together and decided that there were some voices on campus that were not being heard,” she said.“The Race Monologues” debuted in 2012 as a series of monologues based on anonymous submissions from the Notre Dame community, Mukumbi said. “It’s Complicated” broadened its scope to issues of identity. Mukumbi said the viewings of past shows will allow students who have not seen the original performances a chance to participate in important conversations.“For a lot of students who come in, they don’t have an idea of how ‘Show Some Skin’ functions,” she said. “Our shows are very different each year, so we wanted to go back in the past and show some of the monologues that were very touching and give people … that never got to see them a chance to watch them.“And at the same time, we want to open it up to discussion because a lot of people don’t get to talk about the monologues after the show. So ‘Show Some Skin: Revisited’ will give people the opportunity to hear other people’s stories and then also talk about them, talk about why certain experiences happened to certain people and delve deeper into the stories.”Mukumbi said the discussion panels after the viewings will include some of the actors who performed in the ‘Show Some Skin’ productions.“We find that a lot of students have questions on the acting process itself, because that’s also part of the story, how different people connect with the monologues and how they grow from that experience as well,” she said.The viewings will allow students to see the monologues that have generated the most conversation, Mukumbi said.“After every show we have a survey that we pass out, and there’s always the monologue, every year, that everyone talks about,” she said. “We always have that type of monologue that resonates with everyone … Maybe [it is] because of the story, or how it’s written — there’s always a different reason why some monologues stand out.”The Notre Dame community needs to continue conversations on the issues that the ‘Show Some Skin’ productions address, Mukumbi said.“We want people to feel comfortable to talk about what they think about these issues. A lot of times, either people want to talk about it and they don’t have the space to do that, or they don’t want to talk about it and they don’t realize why it’s important,” she said.“I’m an African international student, and I feel that sometimes people don’t realize that for some people, the ND experience isn’t as pleasant as it is for other types of students,” she said. “We need to have these conversations because there are some people who really don’t understand that that is an issue on campus.”Mukumbi said she hopes all members of the community will feel welcome to watch the productions and, more importantly, to participate in the conversation.“Everyone is welcome to all of these events,” she said. “They are not just for students, or minorities, or people who are interested in these issues. We really want this to be the type of event where everyone feels welcome. We just want to start the conversation and get it going, so that we can actually get working on how to fix some of these issues because we can’t fix them unless we talk about them.”Tags: gender, It’s Complicated, race, Race Monologues, show some skin
