annual report 2022

Dear Ursinus Community,

What a difference a year makes! This time last year, Ursinus College was still a relative unknown to me. Sure, I’d heard of the small community-centric, yet nationally recognized liberal arts college—a “college that changes lives”—but I had no idea that I would one day lead this storied institution as its 19th president. I’m humbled and honored, and I look forward to helping to usher Ursinus to new greatness over the next several years.

HOW WE BUILD Community

What makes a community? It’s more than just the physical space around us. It’s people who share passions and ideas; a sense of belonging; diversity of thought; a common purpose; and an interpersonal connection. The Ursinus community expands well beyond the reach of 170 acres in Collegeville. It’s comprised of our neighbors, strategic partners, and friends. And each of us has a job to do—collectively—to infuse our sense of common good in all we pursue right here at home, and all around the world. It’s the Ursinus way.

Ingenuity starts with opportunity. Ursinus students disrupt the status quo and reimagine what’s possible. They’ve taken a
fundamental question of the Quest curriculum, “What Will I Do?” and answered it with a bold and resounding, “Everything.”
They’re empowered to remove rigid parameters, break down silos, work at the intersection of disciplines, and invite diverse voices
from different backgrounds and generations to come up with solutions to the world’s most pressing problems. At their very core,
the liberal arts are innovative. It’s about being open to fresh perspectives, being unafraid to experiment and fail, and sparking
ideas that create change.
