Message From President Lettiere
Happy New Year! We look forward to these three words each year, and today they ring even louder. 2021 comes with high expectations, perhaps a renewed outlook and sense of priority for all of us. Learning and reflecting are paramount to moving forward, and at Immaculata University, this lies at the heart of our mission.
Good news abounds, and it is important for us to share stories that provide us with truth, pride, inspiration and perspective. In this issue, you will meet alums who embody success in so many ways. I am humbled by their bravery, talent, capability and imagination. Equally evident is the love and appreciation for their alma mater, as is the commitment to use what they have learned to serve the world in ways meaningful and impactful. You will also read about how creative technology is improving access and opportunity in the classroom and beyond. Even our magazine has a new upgrade to a digital version that will allow you to experience additional content, photos and other complements to our printed version.
Although our centennial year has officially ended, we continue to reflect upon and honor our strong history, which informs the vision of our future for Immaculata. In this photograph, we can easily see change over time on our campus. Progress happens every day and in many ways. Yet, the bones and spirit of Immaculata remain unchanged, and will forever serve us well. Let us all embrace this New Year with open arms and minds and continue changing the world.
