Wilkes Flagler Scholar’s Social Venture, Avalon, Funded by FAU Wave Competition Richard Gordon
Freshman Matt Robinson, a Harriet L. Wilkes Flagler Scholar, submitted his social entrepreneur business plan to the FAU Wave Competition where he was granted $500 for initial funding. He will present at the FAU Wave Ceremony in April 2017 where he will be competing to win $1500. The International Studies major says his social venture is called Avalon. “The main idea is self-actualization through faith,” says Robinson. “Overall, it can be described as an online spiritual and education community where people can build a holistic mind, body, and spirit through Christianity. It's structured by free membership sign-ups.” Robinson plans to continue building his business during his undergraduate career and after graduation.

CARD Holds First Responders Training Richard Gordon
The Center for Autism and Related Disabilities (CARD) recently held an autism awareness training for first responders at FAU Jupiter. The comprehensive training provided an overview on autism and related disabilities, and verbal techniques that can be used to effectively communicate with autistic individuals. Instructors Sgt. Jimmy Donohoe of the Pensacola, Florida Police Department and Retired Captain Bill Cannata of the Westwood, Massachusetts Fire Department have been training first responders on this important topic for 12 years.
Florida Atlantic University’s John D. MacArthur Campus in Jupiter presently enrolls more than 1,500 students and offers a broad range of upper-division and graduate courses. The campus houses the Harriet L. Wilkes Honors College and the nation’s largest Lifelong Learning Society. Both the FAU Brain Institute and the FAU Center for Molecular Biology and Biotechnology call the MacArthur campus home, providing cutting edge research infrastructure and educational programs that link to other FAU campuses. The Jupiter Life Science Initiative serves to unite scientists and students in campus research and training activities, and helps sustain FAU’s close affiliations with Scripps Florida and the Max Planck Florida Institute, which are also located on the campus.
