The purpose of education is to find ways to think beyond oneself, but one must start with the self. The liberal arts at Hamilton – rooted in the College’s motto “Know Thyself” and made possible by our deeply committed faculty – allows for that journey. Interacting with and mentoring students through that process of self-discovery is what drew me to the liberal arts in the first place, and it’s at the heart of the work we do here at Hamilton.
The highly personalized education we offer requires an empowering environment where our teacher-scholars have the best resources to pursue scholarship, creative work, and innovative ways of thinking and teaching. It also necessitates support for each faculty member as a person, an academic, and as a member of the greater College community. I look forward to working on behalf of and alongside my faculty colleagues as we continue to commit ourselves to the intellectual and personal development of our students, as well as one another.
