Message from the President

This is one year-long story we are especially excited to share.

Collegeville is a place where exceptional things happen. Every year, countless conversations spark new ideas that our faculty and students pursue with zeal. A contemporary arts culture is supported by vibrant performances, our athletes impress across 25 sports, intriguing scholarship is happening in every one of our 20 academic departments, and community bonds are growing stronger because our students volunteer hundreds of hours to service.

This is Ursinus. We are a campus of action, a community of engaged individuals who like to create, to pursue, to perform, to achieve.

On this website, you’ll see a chronological snapshot of some of that activity. We can’t possibly capture all of the moments or the remarkable opportunities that Ursinus offers each and every one of us, but we can showcase a selection of accomplishments that are Uncommonly Ursinus. Taken together, they make for an incredibly powerful and inspiring story.

As you may know, I am humbled to have served as president since July 1, 2015, so the events in this year-end report precede me.

That doesn’t make me any less proud. In fact, I am especially honored to lead a college that handles adversity with extraordinary grace and verve and unrelenting resiliency. In a time when many others would struggle to find their way, Ursinus College came together as a community and witnessed one of its best years for science grants, athletic championships and individual honors, reunion fundraising and parent support.

This is one year-long story we are especially excited to share.
