With joy and gratitude, on the weekend of May 14-15, we celebrated Commencement 2022, and for the first time since 2019, we were able to gather on campus for our Rose Ceremony. For years, my colleagues have been telling me how incredible it would be to attend this event in person, and still, I was not quite prepared for how moving and inspiring it was to be there, witnessing all these remarkable women step up to the podium and share words of wisdom, encouragement and resilience.
The Rose Ceremony is a testament to the hard work and deep passion that propels our Bay Path community. Whether it’s our faculty and staff supporting our students or our students supporting one another, there is so much power in knowing we can help each other triumph. It provides much needed optimism and a deep well of hope, as we face the future together. May the example set by these students echo within you, as it does within me…. Never, never, never give up.
Welcome to my official blog as President of Bay Path University. I’ll be using this space to share ideas, research, and perspectives connected to Bay Path and our unique role as an innovative, transformative institution. Through this blog, I hope to encourage dialogue and inspire critical thinking about topics that impact our mission, our students, and our community.
I look forward to sharing my thoughts with you and invite you to join the discussion. My inbox is always open firstname.lastname@example.org.
