Commemorative Issue Recognizing President Mary Hines' Eight Years of Leadership

A SPIRITED LEGACY Carlow University’s ninth president, Dr. Mary Hines was the first layperson to hold the office. Her eight-year tenure at the University, from 2005-2013, was a time of transformation, highlighted by many significant milestones as Carlow grew into its new status as a university. “Mary Hines has been an exceptional leader at a pivotal time in the life of Carlow University,” said former Board Chair, George Pry, chair of Carlow's Board of Trustees. “She has fostered the growth of Carlow’s uniquely collaborative style in education, while ensuring that the University is effectively positioned for continued success, a proud legacy, indeed.” In January 2013, Dr. Hines announced that she would retire from Carlow when her contract ended on July 31, 2013. In May she received the title “President Emerita” from the University’s Board of Trustees, as well as an honorary doctorate at Spring Commencement. Carlow also established the “Dr. Mary Hines Scholarship” to be awarded annually to a Pell-eligible female student who has demonstrated a commitment to community service. Dr. Hines’ commitment to students and to mentoring young women is a true manifestation of the Mission of Carlow University. In this special E-edition of The Carlow Journal, we reflect upon just a sampling of the many milestones that have occurred during her leadership, linking them directly to the University’s seven core values: Sacredness of Creation, Discovery/Quest, Intellectual Integrity, Leadership, Hospitality, Service, and Student Progress. Embedded in our mission statement, these core values guide decisions, behaviors, relationships, scholarship, and teaching at the University. Please join us as we celebrate the many achievements of the last eight years at Carlow University.

A LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT The theme of my Inauguration eight years ago was “Embracing the Past; Engaging the Present; Envisioning the Future”. In my inaugural address, I promised that “Carlow University’s mission will provide the basis for my administration. In the words of Catherine McAuley, I am committed to the faithful discharge of duty. This I will do with you in each of our todays, while respecting our yesterdays and shaping our tomorrows. Together we will raise our community to new heights, and we will provide to others the strength of intellect and character to continue our work when we are gone.” This we have done…together. I was blessed eight years ago to be called to this place, to this mission, and to a journey shared with students, faculty, staff, alumni, Sisters of Mercy, friends, volunteers, and benefactors who all contributed their high care to Carlow. I was able to honor my promises to Carlow through the collaboration of many colleagues who shared my passion for Carlow’s Motto: “Ad Superna, Non Superba.” Together, we focused on the higher and not the lesser; the enduring and not the transitory. We dedicated ourselves to a ‘higher education’ on this hill, through academic excellence and student engagement in the context of our mission and identity. We understood that our vocation as educators at a Mercy institution is to be committed to a life of learning, teaching, and service. As we collectively reflected on what we do, why and how we do it, and for whom we do it, we were always guided by the words of our mission statement and by the spirit and values of our founding Sisters of Mercy. As president, I was often asked about my vision for Carlow University. During the search process interviews eight years ago, a student asked me: “What will be your legacy?” At that time, my response was: “to enable Carlow to be an even better institution than it is today.” Both then and now, my vision has been that Carlow fully actualize its potential to be a University; that all Carlow learners achieve their academic goals through their best learning; that we all embrace Mercy values and exhibit them in our professional and personal lives; and that alumni, benefactors, and those with whom our unique mission resonates continue to support Carlow University. Such a vision is achieved within an overall perspective which acknowledges the past, analyzes the present, anticipates the unknown, embraces change, and expects continuous improvement through strategic initiatives. Such a vision enables academic excellence, engages students in their learning, and promotes opportunities for community friends and partners to share in this journey. This is the vision which has brought Carlow University new opportunities for excellence and engagement. Carlow University stands at another transformative moment as it meets “the next great need” in educating our learners. Throughout the last eight years, faculty, staff, and administration have been engaged in assessments of our past and present, and have planned an optimal, sustainable future for our students and for this institution which supports them in their individual learning styles from Early Childhood through Doctoral programs. Together, we have envisioned, embraced, and evolved new modes of learning and assessment, of curricular restructuring and program positioning, of technological opportunities and repurposed spaces for individualized and collaborative learning in the Campus School, and in collegiate undergraduate and graduate programs. We have received financial support for academically able but economically challenged students who want to experience the comprehensive Carlow University education which they need to succeed. Today, Carlow University is ‘looking good’ in its physical space and in its continuing mission commitment. Carlow is ‘looking good’ to Mount Mercy/Carlow alumni who have generously connected with current students and with academic program faculty and staff to enhance the total Carlow experience. Carlow is ‘looking good’ in the communities we serve and in the eyes of our partners and benefactors who recognize Carlow’s visible presence and influential leadership in education and in community and economic development initiatives. Our collective efforts during these eight years have produced outstanding results. I thank my mission colleagues and Carlow’s alumni, friends, partners, and benefactors, for collaboration and care, for integrity and generosity of spirit, and for gifts in service to our students. We have come a long way to achieve a vision which continues to evolve through scholarship and service. We have established a visibility which makes us ever more present in our communities and respected by all who know us. We have expressed our values, enhanced our venue, assessed our viability, respected diverse voices, ensured academic vitality and vigor, and validated results. By joining our hearts, heads, and hands, we have become a vibrant learning community which has experienced many victories and which is prepared to embrace new challenges. It has been my honor to serve with so many dedicated persons to fulfill Carlow University’s educational mission and service imperative. I leave confident that Carlow is a stronger institution for its 21st century learners, and that Carlow’s future is guaranteed by those who will continue to dedicate themselves to scholarship, vision, and values.
