It is a great honor to join the University of Puget Sound community as the institution’s 14th president in its 128-year history. Puget Sound is an exceptional national liberal arts college that maintains an unwavering commitment to provide students a rigorous and student-focused education that fosters personal and intellectual discovery, and prepares them to become effective, engaged, and thoughtful global citizens. I have discovered here a welcoming community of educators, artists, musicians, scholars, researchers, and innovators—of students, faculty, staff, alumni, trustees, and others—who exemplify the values of lifelong learning and service to community. I invite you to learn more about the university and its leadership on these pages, and to contact me at any time with your questions, ideas, and dreams for the future of this remarkable college.
