This Year's Theme

For 2017-2018, our University Theme will explore CommUNITY; the places, spaces and ways we come together in our diversity and unique outlooks.

Community is about what we share, what we hold "in common," what we dream and hope, and how we live together in a harmony that welcomes and celebrates differences. Bay Path is a learning community: we learn what it means to live WELL (Women as Empowered Learners and Leaders); we learn what it means to be professionals and purposeful; to be self-aware, confident and open to change, adventure and challenge. Together, we hone our minds, claim our educations and work to make the world a better place.

Join us throughout the year as we engage in dialogues, workshops, presentations, readings, and in-class and out of class experiences that delve into the intersections of community and unity. We are Bay Path: many women, many ways, one world.

We invite you to think about how you can contribute to the campus theme, by weaving the concepts/questions/issues related to CommUNITY into courses and/or extra-curricular activities, organizing or participating in an event, or leading some kind of experience for your students -- whether they be trad, grad, TAWC, or one day. Should you find creative ways to sustain the conversation about CommUNITY, be sure to let us know by emailing Dr. Kristine Barnett at

In every community, there is work to be done. In every nation, there are wounds to heal. In every heart, there is the power to do it.” — Marianne Williamson
