President’s Post #111: Our Values and Our Experiences

Dear Colleague:

Today is the annual College picnic. In recent years, many of us have come together at the Trustees Pavilion for the tug of war tournament and the staff recognition awards, and to enjoy the general conviviality that comes with good food, fun activities, and the camaraderie of our colleagues. In addition, we also gather today to consider the challenges we confronted and the successes we shared this past year.

Earlier this academic year, the President’s Advisory Council, a body comprised of students, faculty, staff, and others endorsed the College’s Values Statement. Values statements formally and informally guide the members of an organization by elucidating the enduring beliefs that an organization holds in common.
