Along with cherry blossoms and a much-needed respite from the past winter’s brutal cold and snow, this spring brings many exciting developments to the College, the foremost of which is the recent appointment of Kim Cassidy as the 9th president of Bryn Mawr College. In the cover story, “A Leader for Us All,” you can learn more about how Cassidy draws on her experiences as a developmental psychologist, as well as a teacher and administrator, to shape her vision for the College.
Part of that vision has entailed advocating for more joy on campus, or, as Cassidy explains, “finding the good in what you’re doing and what you’re experiencing.” Many of the stories in this issue feature alumnae who have been doing just that, whether they are revitalizing decaying urban communities, writing poetry to explore the joys and sorrows of getting older, or simply resolving to live lives of fairness and honesty.
How do you find “the good in what you’re doing?” Share your stories here.
