One of the reasons why I stayed here pretty much all of my career was the community feel and beauty of this place, a perfect small liberal arts college. I feel very fortunate to have ended up in such a welcoming place to live and raise two daughters – an environment where I was fully supported by administration and colleagues to pursue my teaching, research and community service.
I’m excited to get folks in the community involved with this research. To me, it’s their project at the end of the day. Some people say we’re giving a voice to the voiceless, but these members of the community already have a voice. We’re just giving them the space to speak.
