The Hilbert College English Program’s spring Visiting Artist Series featured John Noltner, an award-winning photographer, who presented his multimedia arts project “A Peace of My Mind” on Tuesday, April 25 at 7 p.m. in the William E. Swan Auditorium on the Hilbert campus.

His project is built around the simple question, “What does peace mean to you?” Founded in 2009 by Noltner, the project began as his effort to rediscover humanity in an increasingly polarized world.

Noltner shared some of the engaging portraits and compelling personal stories about what peace means to people, how they work towards it, and some of the obstacles they encounter.

Hilbert College students, faculty, and staff spent Friday, January 20 connecting with the local community through Unity with Our Community, a service day devoted to carrying on the work and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Members of the Hilbert community served at four sites in the area including: 1) The Teacher’s Desk, a nonprofit organization that provides free resources and supplies to local teachers for their classrooms and students to better facilitate learning and academic success; 2) Little Portion Friary, a completely volunteer-based nonprofit organization that strives to meet the needs of homeless individuals including short term shelter and meals; 3) Journey’s End, a Christian community organization that works to serve refugees in their journey to becoming new Americans in WNY including, but not limited to resettlement support, interpretation services, and legal services; 4) Veterans One Stop, an agency dedicated to providing a range of social and health services to meet to support our veterans and their families across WNY.

Depending upon the site, students, staff, and faculty had the opportunity to organize supplies and pantries, prep meals, assist with light housekeeping, and set up an apartment for a new refugee family.
