I knew when I came to Juniata that our community on campus and around the world was entrusting me with something special. I spend each day challenging our students, staff, and faculty to live up to the best of what this College represents.
It is immensely gratifying to view Juniata with an eye toward aspiration. On our campus and amid our ranks of alumni and friends who know us best, a palpable momentum is building. We are telling our story in a more proud and compelling way. Our students continue to excel and achieve at the highest levels. Our faculty grapple with making a stronger curriculum while delivering the positive and immersive educational experience for which students seek. We are in a period of positive restlessness, with much in motion and grand plans to strengthen Juniata.
Amid this activity, and against the challenges we know we will overcome, I believe Juniata will be better known and stronger in its ability to deliver on our mission. I know as we partner with students to magnify their interests, we become a profound part of who they are. Finally, I know we can count on you as we build the Juniata of tomorrow with the help of those who know us best.
This website describes for you our broad vision and goals. The materials also included describe the opportunities you have to support and enliven that vision through giving. I believe in Juniata and I believe you will help us.
