Dear Students,

Welcome to the Fall 2022 semester. On behalf of the staff at Douglass, we’re excited to have you back!

Research shows that students that have the most positive college experience, and stay through graduation, are those who find a sense of connection. With this in mind, I urge you to fully engage in all that Douglass has to offer.

Sacred Path

This coming month, Douglass will welcome the Class of 2026 to campus. At Welcome Days, Douglass staff and student ambassadors from the Douglass Student Recruitment Network put on a two-day suite of activities for new students. The College is excited to connect a new cohort of talented and bright undergraduates to the power of the Douglass Difference.


Thank you for the warm welcome I have received from so many of you to the Interim Dean role. 

I joined Douglass four years ago in the Office of Advancement and have served for the past two years as the Associate Dean for Strategic Initiatives, overseeing communications, operations, and planning at the College. While I have had the pleasure of meeting many of you, I wanted to take a minute to introduce myself to those of you I have not yet met.

To Our Alumnae Community,

One of my greatest joys as Dean of Douglass has been learning about and getting to know our wonderful alumnae. I have met hundreds of you, learned about your lives and dreams, and shared the many wonders of Douglass today. Your reflections on your college years, the deep friendships you generated at Douglass, and your curiosity about the College today have fueled many fulfilling days and hours over my last twelve years as Dean.

Students at Douglass Day

The Douglass Global Village and the Douglass Discovery Faculty Fellows program held the first annual Douglass Day, an event in which students presented the projects they worked on this past semester. The evening offered students the opportunity to share their work, showing the entire college community all that can be achieved through Douglass programs!

After two years of virtual ceremonies, the annual Sacred Path Ceremony returned to Douglass on April 10, 2022. The Ceremony, which recognizes student achievement, announced the 2022 Douglass award winners, marked the moving up of classes, and awarded each student and alumna with a commemorative Douglass charm. See the list of 2022 award winners below!
