"The Duquesne University Women's Advisory Board (WAB) is an active service organization dedicated to the University mission of Serving God, by Serving Students. For more than 60 years, they have supported various University students, groups, activities, events, and programs. Currently, the WAB is dedicated to raising funds annually to support: An undergraduate music school scholarship award; endowed scholarships for deserving undergraduate and graduate students; and various student activities and programs consistent with the Spiritan mission."
Since 2007, Rosalie has been a member of the Duquesne University Women's Guild. Officially founded in October 1928, funds were raised for a scholarship for women students but were later made available to male students. Fundraisers were held by the Guild to benefit the University and its students, and the annual Pink Geranium Party, which is now known as the Stepping Into Spring Annual Luncheon & Fashion Show. As a member, Rosalie has been an officer of the Guild - recording secretary and various chair positions. "The mission of this Guild shall be to encourage and advance the interests of the University in those activities which concern the mind, heart, and spirit of students. To cooperate with the University Administration; to suggest or sponsor activities which will bring into closer association the students and members of the Guild and in all activities to maintain the general good of the University."
After the creator of the Miryam's Birthday Bag Project retired, Rosalie took over in 2013 as the coordinator of the project planning for various university departments to participate in the Birthday Bag Project. Each month a birthday cake and eight birthday bags, filled with a variety of needed items for the homeless ladies at the center, are delivered to the shelter.
Rosalie also participates in the annual Spiritan Campus Ministry blanket-making "Share Your Love Event." These blankets are sent with the Duquesne University students who participate in the Spring Break Spiritan Mission Experience to West Virginia.
Among the many programs Rosalie participates in and donates to, she, along with a committee of School of Music staff members, arranges wellness events for the School of Music students.
Rosalie enjoys working at Duquesne University and proud to be part of the family in the Mary Pappert School of Music.
