ontclair State University and Medical Missions for Children (MMC), host of a global telemedicine and teaching network that helps treat children in some of the world's poorest regions, announced an agreement today in which the University will serve as the digital repository for MMC's extensive video library of medical programming.

The agreement positions the University as a global knowledge center for health information and advances its educational mission in a way that will make a positive difference in the lives of children.

"The agreement complements Montclair State's emphasis in global education and takes advantage of the University's achievements in the development of an advanced technological infrastructure," said University President Dr. Susan A. Cole. "New Jersey has some extraordinary institutions, and when we share assets and expertise through partnerships, we expand what we can do in exciting ways. The Medical Missions Global Video Library will be a unique and critical health care resource with an international impact."

Seminar: Adventures in Rock Art, with an Emphasis on the Rock; Wed., Jan. 17, noon, Dickson Hall, Room 155

Gregory A. Pope of the Department of Earth & Environmental Studies will talk about rock art,
ranging from very early carvings and paintings to historical inscriptions. While the "canvas" is seemingly solid, rock is ultimately ephemeral in geologic time, as is the art portrayed on it. An understanding of the rock canvas -- its condition and permanence -- provides an important context or perspective for conservation and dating these
cultural treasures. This talk features geoarchaeological studies of ancient and historic
rock art from Portugal, Ireland, Arizona, and
even New York City.
