Marist College - Local Involvement

Local Involvement

Marist College maintains a partnership with the Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt Institute (FERI) in Hyde Park, which exists primarily to serve as the educational arm of the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum. Furthermore, the library, under the control of the National Archives and Records Administration, serves as the primary resource for student history majors completing capping papers. Marist also administers the library web site (www.fdrlibrary.marist.edu) and has co-sponsored several major conferences in conjunction with the presidential library and FERI. The FDR Library website, which is based on the latest digital asset management technology, has been recognized by Britannica.com as one of the best Presidential Library sites in the country.

Other major projects include the Hudson River Valley Institute (the educational arm of the Hudson River Valley National Heritage Area).

Marist also participates in the Institute of Ecosystem Studies, and many other projects.

Famous quotes containing the words local and/or involvement:

    Resorts advertised for waitresses, specifying that they “must appear in short clothes or no engagement.” Below a Gospel Guide column headed, “Where our Local Divines Will Hang Out Tomorrow,” was an account of spirited gun play at the Bon Ton. In Jeff Winney’s California Concert Hall, patrons “bucked the tiger” under the watchful eye of Kitty Crawhurst, popular “lady” gambler.
    —Administration in the State of Colo, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)

    The mother whose self-image is dependent on her children places on those children the responsibility for her own identity, and her involvement in the details of their lives can put great pressure on the children. A child suffers when everything he or she does is extremely important to a parent; this kind of over-involvement can turn even a small problem into a crisis.
    Grace Baruch (20th century)
