InclusivePublicTrust. These words animated discussions at the recent annual meeting of the Association of American Colleges & Universities, which I attended with a team from St. Kate's that included Alan Silva, Elizabeth Dunens, and Todd Deutsch. Our objective was to learn about new ways of imagining a sustainable future for liberal education and to move the ideas we encountered at the gathering forward in our own community. Stay tuned on that front. In the meantime, I offer a mission-centered question for us all to contemplate: How are we alive to the change that is possible when smart, creative minds rally around a common purpose?
