for the 2012–13 academic year
Welcome to a new academic year filled with promise and purpose. I invite you to ignite your passion and bring out your best possible self; I challenge you to become part of the innovative spirit that creates outstanding new academic and co-curricular programs and continues to enliven those that have a long history at MBC.
Coursework, lectures, and special projects in 2012–13 will be defined by this year’s college-wide theme, Place, which evokes wide-ranging ideas across all disciplines. Whether undergraduates or graduates, residents or commuters, you — the students — are heir to Mary Baldwin’s remarkable spirit of place.
Place is a rich concept and includes the role each of us fills within the web of community and society. A Mary Baldwin College education is designed to empower students to take their places in the world as confident, compassionate changemakers. The 2012–13 academic year offers many opportunities to learn, engage, serve, and experience. Take advantage of as many as you can.
There is no place I would rather be. I encourage you to engage in the courses, organizations, and opportunities that help you feel the same way.

Mary Baldwin College President
