Criminal investigations often begin away from the crime scene, in a curtained hospital room, where nurses treat and counsel the victims of violent crime or abuse.
“When victims need medical attention, they are brought to nurses first,” said Amy LeSuer, a lecturer in nursing at Penn State Erie, The Behrend College. “We help them before law enforcement officials can.”
In keeping with Penn State Behrend's longstanding tradition of inviting a member of the faculty to address graduation candidates and their guests, Dr. Ashutosh Deshmukh, professor of accounting and management information systems, was the speaker at the Friday, May 6, commencement at Erie Insurance Arena.
A student investment team from Penn State Behrend’s Black School of Business reached the regional finals of the Chartered Financial Analyst Institute’s Research Challenge in Chicago on April 13, topping teams from nearly 1,000 other schools.
The team was knocked out of the competition by the University of Waterloo, in Ontario.
