When I was inaugurated as the 12th president of The College of St. Scholastica in October 2016, our theme was, United by mission. Grounded in values. Called to transform.
These words summarize what I experience at the College and what we aspire to every day. I see our Catholic Benedictine values illuminating the way forward to a future filled with exceptional promise for the College and our students.
We are a vibrant learning community of 4,350 students. This includes traditional undergraduates, nontraditional students returning to college, graduate students, and online learners around the world. Our extended family of more than 25,000 alumni are thoughtful leaders who are serving and transforming our world.
We are called to support all students in developing their interests and gifts and in preparing them for meaningful work, while providing them a framework to orient themselves toward their fullest flourishing.
It is a great privilege to lead this community as we write the next chapter of the story of The College of St. Scholastica. I welcome each one of you and hope you will be part of that story.
Colette McCarrick Geary, Ph.D.
