St. Thomas University To Dedicate Biscayne College Mimi Dooner Hall

MIAMI, Feb. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In 1961 a small Catholic men's college emerged in North Dade County thanks to Augustinian friars who traced its roots to the Universidad de Santo Tomas de Villanueva in 1946 Havana. After Castro's regime confiscated the school's land and expelled faculty, priests, administrators, and students, the Diocese of Miami invited the Augustinians to start a new college in Miami – Biscayne College – meeting the education/transition needs of the Cuban exiles. By 1984, with the establishment of the School of Law and other graduate degree programs, the School, now coeducational, became St. Thomas University (www.stu.edu).

What is now Kennedy Hall will be renamed Biscayne College Mimi Dooner Hall on March 19, 2014 honoring John and Cindy Dooner as the College is rededicated in memory of their daughter Mimi. The official dedication starts with a 12:00 PM Mass at the Chapel of Saint Anthony, followed by the building dedication, a luncheon, and tours of the facility. Media members are invited to join the entire St. Thomas University community for the ceremonies and luncheon.

As the original school of St. Thomas University, Biscayne College embodies the values and traditions of the University, developing intellectual leadership that will contribute to broaden an understanding of the peoples of the world. "Great things are already in the make since the College and other St. Thomas' schools embarked on their Blueprint for Leadership transforming plan," said Biscayne College Chair and University Trustee Alex Penelas, also an STU alumnus and former faculty member. "St. Thomas University is poised to become the best Catholic university in the Southeast."

Biscayne College's Honors Program, psychology, criminal justice and graduate counseling degrees are thriving under the academic direction of Dean Scott Zeman. There is a remarkable writing culture. A new center is incubating social justice leaders who contribute to a better quality of life in Florida and the Caribbean Basin.  Students learn to understand and evaluate the human experience in all its diversity.

Global leadership students become part of the 100-plus-year-old international Pax Romana NGO movement of more than 400,000 intellectuals, professionals, and university students in 80 countries. Internships and study-tours with Pax Romana include the United Nations in New York, Paris, and Rome while students also have the opportunity to participate in conferences around the world.

The new Institute for World Languages and Culture will support the University's core values of student success and global diversity as well as the vision that every student will have fluency in at least two languages and an international experience before they graduate. Students will have a wide range of opportunities to learn languages such as Mandarin; study at universities in Latin America, Asia, and Europe; and major in interdisciplinary programs such as Global Studies. "St. Thomas is poised to elevate students to leadership positions in a global marketplace for the next 50 years," added University President Monsignor Franklyn M. Casale.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
WebRTC services have already permeated corporate communications in the form of videoconferencing solutions. However, WebRTC has the potential of going beyond and catalyzing a new class of services providing more than calls with capabilities such as mass-scale real-time media broadcasting, enriched and augmented video, person-to-machine and machine-to-machine communications.
