The College of Mount St. Joseph’s Celebration of Teaching and Learning will be held Tuesday, April 15. This is the Mount’s annual public celebration of student achievement and faculty scholarship showcases fascinating topics presented in posters, lectures and presentations that are open to the campus community and public.

Mark Curnette, a well-known writer in the Cincinnati area, will give the keynote speech, “The Search for Common Ground and the Common Good.” Curnette, a social justice and minority affairs reporter at The Cincinnati Enquirer, will touch on his experiences in Cincinnati’s marginalized communities and in Haiti, where he has worked extensively among the poor, minorities and immigrants. Author of “A Promise in Haiti” (Vanderbilt University Press), Curnette will talk about the people he has met in these communities and how their lives are affected, both positively and negatively by the attitudes and actions of the larger society. Curnette, 51, is an Illinois native and a 1984 Miami University graduate who has worked twenty years at The Enquirer. In addition to social justice and issues of race, Curnette for nine seasons covered the Bengals and NFL for The Enquirer.
