Gonzaga University Report of the President 2011
On a recent flight returning home to Gonzaga University, it dawned on me that on any given day scores of jets bisect the skies above Spokane – and that, at 35,000 feet, it’s unlikely that many travelers comprehend their momentary proximity to Gonzaga. Like so much in our world, Gonzaga reveals her richness only as one treads her paths and listens to her people. Those of us who spend time daily on campus experience a veritable city of learning where students, faculty and staff engage in the daily work of questioning, researching, reflecting, partnering, and reaching out to one another. This multiplicity of interactions creates so many academic, spiritual and humanitarian gems packed into the days of a single academic year; the result can only be fully appreciated when viewed as a mosaic of faith and reflection, of challenges and compassion, of learning and companionship, of friendships made and deepened.
