Welcome, Sullivan Foundation supporters, to the fifth issue of Engage. I’m proud to say that more of our schools are represented in the pages of this edition than ever before. It’s a testament to the broad base of support our Foundation enjoys as well as to how widespread the impact of our network continues to be. Thank you, as always, for helping us further our mission.
This issue wouldn’t be what it is without the tremendous help we’ve had from two new staff members. Those of you that have been in touch with us recently have likely made contact with our new administrator, Gabby Mooney, or our new alumni coordinator Meridith Wulff. Their work so far has been fantastic and we’re very happy to have them on board.
Our staff isn’t the only thing changing. Within the next year, we plan to expand on the success of Engage with some new media offerings and to extend the reach of our programming with our new faculty summit weekend. This new program will acquaint faculty at Sullivan schools with the ever-changing world of social entrepreneurship and equip them to empower the students they mentor. Look to page 14 for a preview.
Hearing these stories as we prepare each issue of the magazine inspires us to keep finding new ways to elevate service on our campuses. We hope that, by sharing those stories with all of you, we can pass that inspiration on and use it to fuel even more positive change. Thanks for being part of that exciting process, and thanks for taking the time to check in with us.
Stephan Land McDavid
President, Sullivan Foundation
