Susan Scherreik, M.B.A., Department of Management, Stillman School of Business. Graduway - Professor Scherreik currently runs the Entrepreneurship Center in the Stillman School since its founding in 2003. A big part of the mission of the center is to create mentoring and internship opportunities as well as provide resources for students who seek to start businesses or learn more about entrepreneurship. All the knowledge and resources that have been developed are limited to Professor Scherreik. Currently there is no centralized database that allows students to more easily find mentors or for faculty to more easily connect students with mentors. This project will use Graduway to broaden the university's entrepreneurship ecosystem to facilitate communication and collaboration on startups among Humanities and Stillman students as well as students in other disciplines.
Youssef Yacoubi, Ph.D., Department of Languages, Literatures, and Cultures, College of Arts & Sciences. Qur'an Digital Humanities Crowdsourcing Project - This project will bring to light some of the textual and calligraphic aspects of a 1698 manuscript of the Qur'an owned by Seton Hall University. The main objective of the project is to decipher the Arabic marginalia through crowdsourcing, to compose a narrative of the journey that this Qur'an made from its initial ownership by a student at Princeton University in 1893, to its arrival at Seton Hall University.
