President’s Ledger What makes an organization stand apart from its peers and rise to a position of prominence? It’s a question I think about quite a bit as president of the College. Through the years, I’ve come to realize that while the quality of “products and services” play a role in making an organization successful, these things are not enough on their own. The foundation of any great organization is great individuals—people who dedicate themselves to creating an environment that seeks out and rewards excellence. So for this issue of the President’s Report, we have turned the spotlight on a group of faculty, staff, and students of the College who reflect this ideal. As you read these stories, you will not only learn what these individuals do, but you will gain some insight into who they are, and how they reached this point in their lives. The difficult part of putting together such a publication is that there are many exceptional individuals who merit a presence on these pages. After much discussion, we eventually narrowed it down to ten people who we believe represent much of what makes this College a great place to work and receive an education. People like John Denio. John has been a fixture at ACPHS since 1976, longer than any current employee. He has distinguished himself at nearly every level of the institution—as a faculty member, associate dean, dean, and now provost. Regardless of the role, John has always approached his work with the same philosophy—“How can I help make this College a better place?” One person who is helping make the College a better place is Meenakshi Malik. In just three years since joining ACPHS, she has quickly distinguished herself as a strong advocate for student research (and an accomplished researcher in her own right, having just secured her second NIH grant). Walk into her lab, and you will see students learning, engaged, and eager to be part of the next scientific discovery. You don’t have to sell Joe Gottwald on the benefits to be gained from research. This exceptional student was one of the participants in last year’s Summer Research Award program. That might not be surprising except for the fact that he also volunteers at the Albany Rescue Mission, plays on the soccer team, and is a peer tutor. These are just a few examples of the people and personalities who make this College the institution that it is. As you read the magazine, you will also be introduced to a third generation legacy student, an alumnus who joined the faculty and launched a residency program, our Director of Global Initiatives, a member of the first graduating class in Vermont, an up-and-coming faculty researcher, and the College’s newly appointed Dean of Graduate Studies. We’ll also recognize an employee who recently retired after working at ACPHS for nearly 40 years. It is, by any measure, a diverse and accomplished group of individuals. And when combined with their peers, the result is an exceptional institution—one that I have been proud to be associated with for the past 15 years.
