Memo from President Fox on RRPTG Report
January 25, 2010

"For both a university and its new president, the first year in office is much like formative experiences in everyone’s life, such as reliving the freshman experience or going on a blind date. Every day brought new discoveries, certainly to me and doubtless also to those I met and worked with—the process was textbook quality in its community and off-campus dimensions: smooth, instructive, and fruitful. Right in the heart of tough economic times, 2009-10 tested us unlike any other challenges most of us have known. We accomplished a very great deal together in the past year, accomplishments recognized by our Board of Trustees at its year-end retreat as a job well done, notable for its order, decency, and positive direction. We demonstrated to ourselves the strength and resilience of a community under stress. One of our colleagues remarked, “The bad times didn’t drive us apart, as they could have, but made us recognize and appreciate the closeness of community here.”

But while a critical year in St. Lawrence’s institutional history for these and other reasons, 2009-10 needs to be understood as the beginning of an ongoing process, one crucial to the future of the University in many ways....

While we continue to adjust ourselves to a different order of pressures and economic values, there is also in this next stage of strategic thinking the tremendous potential to release the impulses of creativity, the splendor of new ideas and forms. Our greatest advantage is the nature, character, and goodness of this place. What we have in the finer qualities of our community is not a common staple at other universities and colleges. We need to remember well that particular indelible mark; and we should even be aggressive at using it to better expedience and benefit. It is what has and will set us apart."

President William L. Fox
