Our Self-Study tells a story of institutional transformation. It is not a story driven by accidental circumstances, historical necessity, external forces, or the will of an individual—though each has played a role—but by collective and deliberate analysis of the College’s position in 2005, followed by thoughtful consideration of the future. Institutional change is often, if not always, difficult, but we have learned to pay constant attention to the ever-changing environment and the fixed destination. We have taken advantage of the opportunity offered by the Self-Study to reflect on the past and look toward the future.
