    I am so excited to be back at Babson. Over the past three decades I have held many Babson titles: student, alum, faculty member, and leader. I am honored and energized to add president to that list.

    My goal is to engage with all of you in ways that are meaningful to you, valuable to the College, and impactful for our students. Today, and every day, I invite you to connect with me on InstagramTwitterFacebook, and LinkedIn.

    I have met thousands of members of the Babson community at hundreds of events and meetings on campus and around the world. Hearing from this smart and passionate community has been an inspiring and valuable learning experience leading into my presidency.

    These interactions have laid the groundwork for our strategic planning effort. Higher education is experiencing profound disruption as colleges and universities contend with demographic and market headwinds. Disruption and change create new opportunities to advance our differentiator — Entrepreneurial Thought & Action® — and by engaging the entire Babson community in a collaborative planning process, we will prepare the College to thrive in today’s evolving environment. I encourage you to share your input and ideas.
