"Dear Readers"

Dear Readers

As I look back on this academic year, I am filled with pride and impressed by the quality of work and the passion of our faculty, staff and students.

At commencement, I told our graduating class of 2018 that they have shown a fearlessness and willingness to take risks to pursue their goals. That’s also true for so many members of the Ursinus community, such as the three alumni you’ll read about in the pages of this edition of Ursinus Magazine. They have committed to making a global impact through international relations, humanitarian efforts and global sustainability. They have developed into confident, compassionate and engaged citizens who are learning from other experiences and cultures, and who are empowered to seek out answers to the world’s most pressing problems. Our goal at Ursinus has always been to transform your sense of what is possible and to help you become leaders in an interdependent world. I’m hopeful that each member of our community can carry that forward and enrich the lives of others. It’s a hallmark of the Ursinus experience and I am inspired by these stories.
