DETROIT, August 15, 2012 – Marygrove College is among four Southeast Michigan colleges and universities to partner with TurboVote, a national service which aims to make voting as convenient as renting a Netflix DVD.

Marygrove joins the University of Michigan-Dearborn, Wayne State University and Eastern Michigan University in offering the online voting service to students.

TurboVote simplifies the process so that voters can focus on the candidates and important ballot questions. Here’s how it works.

1.         When voters sign up at TurboVote.org, the system checks their registration status.

2.         Voters can then request that a pre-filled voter-registration form or vote-by-mail application be sent to them in the mail. The form is delivered with a stamped, pre-addressed envelope, so it’s easy to sign and drop in the mail.

3.         When local election authorities receive the vote-by-mail application, they send the voter a mail-in ballot for the upcoming election.

TurboVote works for every election – special, primary or general, from school board to federal. And for every election, TurboVote sends text message and email reminders to users who have signed up for the service to ensure that they never miss another deadline. TurboVote also offers reminders to users who have signed up for the service and choose to vote in person at their polling places.

Positive change requires a harmonious balance of forces all working together toward a common goal. Just as Marygrove College evolves into a more prominent, outward-focused urban leadership role, the school’s inner workings must be in balance as well. That’s why the position of Director of Mission Integration was devised, to ensure that together with the Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary (IHM), Marygrove and its mission will live on, true to the values that the IHMs have dedicated their lives to shaping.

After a thorough search and a four-month interview process, Jan Machusak was chosen as Director of Mission Integration from a host of more than 200 applicants. She has spent virtually her entire career in Catholic education in the Metropolitan Detroit area, including a leadership role at Dominican High School and Academy in Detroit. She holds a B.S. in Math-Science from Aquinas College and a Master of Science Education from Lawrence Technological University.

Her experience through the years in Franciscan, Dominican and IHM-led institutions will help Marygrove deepen and sustain the connections between our institutional mission, IHM sponsorship, Catholic identity and Urban Leadership vision," says President David Fike of his direct report. "This position was created to promote within the campus community a shared enthusiasm about why we do what we do.

Enthusiasm and creative vision are Jan’s specialties. A self-proclaimed “people person,” she tells a great story about an exercise she used in her classroom once about giving, and being ready to receive. She filled a large bowl of colorful candies in front of a group of very excited students and told them they could reach in and take a handful, BUT they could only use their fists to take some. When a clenched fist yielded a scarce few candies— and a whole lot of frustration— she pointed out that an open hand was a much more effective and gracious way to receive these gifts, and pass them on.
