Dear Members of the Goucher Community,

My wife, Kimberly, and I are here at Goucher College! We look forward to meeting students, alumnae/i, faculty, staff, families, and friends, and to becoming integrated with the Goucher community. 

I have done a lot of research about Goucher leading up to this moment, but nothing can compare to learning from those who have lived the Goucher experience. This is a wonderful institution with an enviable heritage, and I am honored to be a part of it. I will be depending on students and families, faculty and staff, and alumnae/i and friends for their wisdom, passion, and support. In return, as always, I pledge to be humane, transparent, and strategic on behalf of this institution.

In that spirit, as far as my official duties and my vision for the presidency are concerned, here is a quick preview of what I am thinking:
