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
