I’m delighted to welcome you to the summer issue of the
Lycoming Magazine
and to share a
few opening thoughts.
Since my appointment in November, I visited campus on numerous occasions to meet with
faculty, students, staff and members of the board of trustees. Each visit reaffirmed and deepened
my initial impression of Lycoming as a special place – one that makes a meaningful difference
in the lives of its students and alumni.
Earlier this summer, I had the opportunity to greet members of the Class of 2017 during
New Student Orientation. The new students and their parents told me that they are excited to
join Lycoming College and eager to participate in all that Lycoming has to offer – conducting
research with faculty members, engaging the residential life of the campus and volunteering in
the community. Together, students, parents and I will begin our first year with great enthusiasm.
I see Lycoming as an educational institution with both a distinguished past and an exciting
future. Since its founding in 1812 in the aftermath of the American Revolution, the college has
played an important role in educating citizens to participate in our nation’s democracy while also
preparing them to enter their professions. More recently, under the leadership of President James
Douthat, Lycoming has built impressive financial strength and become recognized as a national
liberal arts and sciences college.
As my presidency begins, we have the opportunity to dream boldly and set forth on the path toward even greater excellence.
During the coming year, we will work together to develop a strategic plan that will provide our blueprint for achieving the
prominence and recognition that Lycoming rightly deserves.
I look forward to meeting and engaging the alumni and friends of Lycoming to hear your ideas about the future of the college.
During the fall semester, I will do an “alumni tour.” I hope that you will join me in a dialogue about the exciting possibilities for
