President Boyers Celebrates 100 Days in Office
Katie DuBoff - September 15, 2020
September 8 marked President Boyers’ 100th day in office. To share his thoughts on the past 100 days and look toward Rosemont’s future, he hosted a series of conversations via zoom called “100 Days – A Look Back and Our Way Forward.” On September 10, three sessions of this conversation were held: faculty and staff at 10:00 a.m., students at 3:30 p.m., and alumni at 6:30 p.m.
“I can’t believe it’s been 100 days,” said President Boyers. “Time flies when you’re having fun, as they say.”
President Boyers opened the sessions by reviewing the impact of COVID-19 on Rosemont’s campus.
“We have good systems in place to protect our community,” he said. “We couldn’t do this without our partnership with Main Line Health.”
After brief discussions about Rosemont’s Reopening Plans, he turned his attention to the future.
“We have to talk about COVID-19,” he said. “But I also want to look forward beyond the pandemic to where Rosemont is going. I see the common thread how we live our mission and that we are a highly committed community to each other. Everybody has a part to play toward our growth and building a strategy around diversity and inclusion.”
During the question-and-answer portion of the conversation, President Boyers talked about his commitment to diversity and inclusion, campus improvements, and the need for growth.
“I am ready to move beyond ‘It’s always been this way,’” he said. “I didn’t move halfway across the country during a pandemic if I didn’t think Rosemont held great promises and possibilities for the future.”
