Letter from President Hannigan

One Ursinus And The Embodiment Of People, Places, And Planet

President Robyn Hannigan President Robyn HanniganDuring my inauguration last October, I promised to dedicate my presidency to a powerful idea: One Ursinus. We are a college that changes lives, and in order to remain true to our mission—and to manifest the full potential of our students so they can become thoughtful, engaged citizens—we must work together.

We’re doing it. You’re taking the notion of One Ursinus and running with it, creating even more opportunities for collaboration and innovation at every turn, on campus and off campus. I’m impressed by all the work that you’re doing to make even the smallest initiative have an enormous impact, and your creativity, resourcefulness, and open-mindedness is truly inspiring.

That is especially true as we work to improve the well-being of our people, places, and planet. By becoming the first liberal arts college to sign the Okanagan Charter last fall, we’re dedicating resources to nourishing each student, staff, and faculty member, as well as the community that surrounds us and our environment. In this annual report and year in review, you’re going to read about some of our proudest moments from the past year, and the people who helped bring them to life.

Over our 150-plus years of existence, Ursinus has always been known for being unpretentious. But honestly, we have every reason to tout our achievements and shout about them far and wide. I’m proud of the work we’ve done, and I’m looking forward to what’s to come. Thank you, Bears, for a memorable year.
