  • Endowment Growth – School of Business to produce those that can fund it
  • Importance of Ethics
  • Young people do not give back – evident in all community programs; import to teach them the importance
  • Communications major of importance
  • Be able to dialog on both sides of things – keep ability to have integrity; continue to practice this
  • I desire it to be identified for its Dominican presence and tradition and to be considered one of the top five Catholic colleges in the United States. In a technical world that is rapidly changing, there is a need for people to  think critically, analyze thoughtfully and express clearly. Providence should be a place where difficult topics are freely discussed and solutions fearlessly sought. Silicon Valley is known as a think tank for creative technical advances. Why cannot Providence College be identified as a center for independent thinking based on its Dominican traditions and values? Having been exposed to the Socratic method at Providence College, I always thought it was appropriate to answer a question by asking another question!
  • Promote community involvement in religious studies with weekly speakers’ programs (gratis)
