We often say that at Muskingum, we educate the whole student for the whole world. That statement has taken on an even more powerful meaning in the past few weeks as students, faculty, and staff have experienced direct connections with the invasion of Ukraine.
As you will note in the accompanying story, Dr. Richard Arnold, of our Political Science Department, has strong professional and personal ties to Ukraine and is helping the campus community develop a deeper understanding of this region and its place in the world.
I listened to his and other stories of powerful connections to international communities, I am struck once again by how vital this understanding of the world is for our collective future. Educating students in, about, and for the whole world is what Muskingum does. I am very grateful for the students, faculty, staff, and alumni who continue to lead us in that educational mission.
With prayers for peace,
President Sue Hasseler
