Yesterday I had the honor of representing George Mason University for the inauguration of Lynn Pasquerella as its 18th President. I have family roots in the Nation’s oldest women’s institution of higher education (1837) and it the pageantry was wonderful. But more stirring was Dr. Pasquerella’s speech which eloquently called for global social justice for women–and for MHC’s alumnae to lead that effort.
As an aside, the Fall Colors are just starting to burst forth in the Pioneer Valley. New England is just weeks away from its annual spectacular show of autumnal brilliance.
