CHALLENGES, CONNECTIONS, & CREATIVITY

Creativity is a wonderful gift. It’s incredible to see it in action, and it’s a joy to help to foster. There is also a particular awe when creativity is born out of difficulties or challenging situations. Amid this pandemic, one of the aspects for which I am most struck and also most grateful, is the creativity shown by our team and by our students. Our team has done incredible work to creatively reimagine programs that continue to offer formational experiences for students in a virtual world. Our students have creatively found ways to have an impact on so many communities, even at a physical distance, as beautifully demonstrated in the stories below.

I find great comfort in knowing that we have proven what is possible through our collective creativity. Just imagine what we can do next - here, there, and everywhere.
