Fagin Hall Goes Digital
Penn nursing’s legacy of leadership and focus on in- novation demands cutting edge technology in all of its spaces—including the Carol Elizabeth Ware Lobby in Claire M. Fagin Hall. Thanks to a generous gift from Maria Coutretsis Magliacano Nu’98 and Marc Magliacano W’96, the look and feel of the lobby—not to mention the School’s technology assets—have been trans- formed by a strategically designed digital communications center.
The Magliacano Digital Comm- unications Center (MDCC) is a state-of-the-art, nine-screen, high- definition installation that allows Penn Nursing to synchronize content in the lobby as well as across all the high- definition digital displays throughout Fagin Hall. This speaks directly to a key goal in Leading to a Healthier, More Equitable Future, Penn Nursing’s strategic plan—specifically, upgrading current spaces to be state-of-the-art as part of Penn Nursing’s commitment to a strong and inclusive infrastructure.
Strengthening the School’s ability to share news, announcements, event coverage, donor recognition, giving priorities, and more through dynamic visual and creative content, the MDCC provides an additional—and highly engaging— means of communicating with multiple stakeholders, including students, donors, alumni, faculty, and friends.
The Magliacano’s gift to Penn Nursing, which also launched several funds to support students and faculty, makes a very visual impact at Fagin Hall. Nadina Deigh, Vice Dean of Institutional Advancement, says, “Penn Nursing’s fantastic alumni continue to give back to the school in such mean- ingful ways. The Magliacano Digital Communications Center provides our School a dynamic new communications tool—and we are incredibly grateful to have Maria and Marc’s support.”
