High on the list for 2017 is my leap into the growing blogging universe. At heart, I am a traditionalist, but I am never afraid to embrace change, including new ways to share my views and observations.
I am pleased to announce that this is my first post of many that will speak to a variety of topics in higher education, as well as issues that impact women at work, home, and in the classroom. And, of course, this is an excellent platform to deliver the points of pride about Bay Path.
My calendar for January had me crisscrossing across the United States. I began with the Council for Independent Colleges 2017 President’s Institute in Florida, where I am the chair of the New President’s Program, and then headed north to Washington D.C. for a meeting of the Department of Homeland Security Academic Advisory Council, which I was appointed to in October. The next stop was San Francisco where I attended the Association of American Colleges & Universities 2017 Annual Meeting—I am honored to be appointed to the Board by the incoming President Lynn Pasquerella, former president of Mt. Holyoke College. I then returned Palm Beach and Miami, Florida, where I spoke at a number of venues about my recent book, Achieving the Dream: A How-to Guide for Adult Women Seeking a College Degree, and the message of the far-ranging impact of adult women earning their college degree.
In the midst of this travel, I will be planning my next blog entry. Bookmark this page, or look for the alert on one of Bay Path’s social media channels (Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn) for upcoming blog posts. Stay tuned!
