Messages from Jayson Boyers, EdD, President of Rosemont College, to the College Community
Presidential Ponderings is the section of the website that will house messages from me that explore the issues of our time, whatever they may be. I think it very important to connect our lives at Rosemont to the world that surrounds us. It gives our campus lives context and helps us all find meaning. In fact, I think it is a critical part of any educational experience, and helps us all become learners for life, something I know is a key part of Rosemont’s mission. Please know that I’ll always welcome your responses and that I look forward to further dialog with you on any and all issues and subjects.

This time of year, I often find myself thinking about the people we have come to know along our journey. Beyond the connections we made in each location, we found true community in each of those places. We felt comfortable, we belonged, and we were known. I’m so grateful for that.

I’ve been doing a lot of thinking lately about new beginnings, and it is no wonder why. I’ve been in a new position three and a half months. Mandy and I have moved to a new home. I have a new commute to work and I’m learning new roads. (Although, I have to be honest, I may never wrap my head around all the Gulph Roads in Lower Merion.) But, it’s not these things that are behind my focus. It is the fact that it is September. A month that, even more than January, always seems to begin the year for me. My Jewish friends have it right in Rosh Hashanah, I think.

I write to you today, my first official message to you, to share my personal thoughts on what I know has been heavy on the hearts of so many members of the College community - the events of this past week surrounding the killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery and the ensuing response around the country.
