With this seventh issue of Engage, we enter the fourth year of the magazine. This issue, as usual, features some colleges and people we’ve seen before as well as some new perspectives on our thriving network. I hope you’ll enjoy seeing what the Sullivan Foundation and its members have going on.
The Foundation is always striving to grow so we can take the valuable impact we have in communities and expand it to affect even more lives. In the coming months, we’ll be introducing even more ways for you to connect with us—through media as well as through new programs. We’re also looking at ways to not only increase our financial resources but also how to use those resources more efficiently to support students and faculty and make real change in the world. I hope to have an update on that in the spring issue.
We’re also committed to our existing programs and continuing to improve on them. Our Ignite student retreats continue to thrive, but we’re working on ways to keep students engaged once the weekend is over. Our Faculty Summit is building momentum and increasing the number of involved faculty in our network.
The more we connect, the more we can accomplish. I am as proud as ever of the work we do, and we want to make sure you stay connected to us, so feel free to reach out, to let us know how we can help you as you help others. As always, remember to engage.
