“I thank you all for your commitment and loyalty to Albertus; it has been an honor and privilege to serve.”

Dear Alumni and Friends, It is with deep gratitude for your support over these many years that I write my last letter in From the Hill to you. Your steadfast belief and faith in our mission and purposes, your kind notes and letters, your generous philanthropy and your joy in the accomplishments of our students—this has sustained me in the years of my presidency. I thank you all for your commitment and loyalty to Albertus; it has been an honor and privilege to serve. The College’s mission, which is to provide men and women with an education that promotes the search for truth in all its dimensions and is practical in its application, is carried out each and every day here on the main campus in New Haven and at our East Hartford location. As a Catholic College in the Dominican Tradition, we have built upon a solid foundation, adapting to 21st century needs and challenges. The Dominican motto, contemplata aliis tradere, to give to others the fruits of one’s contemplation, inspires us.

I am very pleased that Sister Anne Kilbride, O.P., has agreed to serve as interim president, an appointment that took effect July 1, the day following my retirement. Sister Anne is no stranger to Albertus or to New Haven. She grew up here, graduated from St. Mary’s High School and Southern Connecticut State University, and, later, earned master’s degrees from the University of Notre Dame and Boston College. Sister Anne served for nearly 25 years as a member of Albertus’s Board of Trustees. In 2009, the College conferred upon her the degree of Doctor of Humane Letters honoris causa for her many years of faithful service and dedication to the Dominican Sisters and to Albertus. Sister Anne served seven years as prioress of the Dominican Sisters of St. Mary of the Springs, now known as the Dominican Sisters of Peace. From August 2011 to June 30, 2016, she has served here at Albertus as a special assistant to me for Dominican Mission. Let us all wish Sister Anne well as she carries out the responsibilities of interim president of Albertus Magnus College. Faithfully yours,

A Visionary Leader For nearly 34 years the name of Julia M. McNamara has been synonymous with Albertus Magnus College. Appointed in 1982, and inaugurated on October 15, 1983, as the College’s 12th president, she would become the College’s longest serving president. A distinguished educator and visionary leader, Dr. McNamara, throughout her presidency, encouraged the College’s Administrative Council and distinguished faculty to think outside the box. Her question was always “Who has a problem that we can help to solve?” That question often linked to another comment, one that emphasized her confidence and belief in what the College could accomplish: “We are a small college with big ideas and the capacity to put them into action.” She has led the College through change, renewal and growth, as well as recovery from a hurricane or two, and a tornado that ripped off the roof of the new Cosgrove, Marcus, Messer Athletic Center, which had been completed just days before. Her service to the College and to the community beyond Rosary Gate is inspiring, as highlights of three decades show.

he mission of Albertus provides men and women with an education that promotes the search for truth in all its dimensions and is practical in its application. Under Dr. McNamara’s leadership, the College has steadfastly carried out this mission, remaining true to the spirit and traditions of the founding Dominican Sisters. In 1985 the College’s deliberation and conversations with groups of stakeholders, including faculty, administration, alumni and students, led to a unanimous vote by the Board of Trustees to admit men to all programs, moving Albertus into a new era. College enrollment, approximately 500 students at that time, has more than tripled. The College, also in in 1985, extended its outreach to adults who wanted to complete or begin a degree program; this pioneering move formalized an accelerated degree program that had its roots in an early 1970s program for women called “Begin Again.” By 1994 programming for the adult learner expanded once again, adding the innovative New Dimensions business degree program for working adults. Also in 1994, the College awarded its first master’s degree: the Master of Arts in Liberal Studies. Today 10 master’s degrees are offered, including the only master’s program in art therapy in Connecticut. Over the years, and with Board approval, Dr. McNamara signed several articulation agreements with presidents of Connecticut’s community colleges, accepting their qualifying graduates into Albertus’s bachelor’s programs. The current president of the Albertus Alumni Association, a graduate of Gateway Community College, earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Albertus. During Dr. McNamara’s presidency, the College joined the NCAA’s Division III athletics program in 1989. Today Albertus has 13 varsity teams: women’s basketball, lacrosse, soccer, softball, tennis and volleyball; men’s baseball, basketball, golf, lacrosse, soccer, tennis and volleyball. There are two club sports: women’s golf and women’s swimming. The College supports strong athletic programs to enhance campus life, promote student engagement, foster community spirit and help to attract and retain students. Sound planning is essential to any successful enterprise. For many years, “The Plan for Albertus” set forth critical operational success factors. By 2001 the focus was on proactive, strategic planning. The current plan, “Albertus 2020: A Strategic Path for the 21st Century,” is the result of a collaborative effort of the College’s constituencies. In introducing “Albertus 2020” to the Albertus community, Dr. McNamara noted that “Everything the College does enables students to grow as individuals, building not just a career, but a full and meaningful life.” The College landscape has changed during the McNamara years. At the October 1989 dedication ceremony for the Cosgrove, Marcus, Messer Athletic Center, Dr. McNamara said, referring to the tornado that had struck the campus on July 10, 1989, “This has to be a first in anyone’s annals—a brand new building and it’s already been rebuilt and restored.” Noting the loss of trees, she said, “What had been a beautiful park

all of a sudden became a barren wasteland with the loss of hundreds of mature trees.” The College undertook a renovation and beautification initiative, rebuilding the campus with new lawns, plantings and trees. The Mary A. and Louis F. Tagliatela Academic Center opened for classes in 2005, and four years later Aquinas Hall had a facelift with the addition of a new wing and the Josephine Bree Common. The College became free of long-term debt in the late 1990s, and this continues. Other changes during Dr. McNamara’s service were the connection of the campus community and the digital world, the rejuvenation of the science curriculum and reestablishing of the Education Programs department. The College has transformed the interior of Rosary Hall to a 21st century Information Commons, maintaining and preserving the traditional 1906 exterior. The College in 1998 established an East Hartford Learning Center to make education more accessible for evening students. At the main campus in New Haven, students in the traditional undergraduate program now have access to six fiveyear programs leading to master’s degrees. In the Community One of Dr. McNamara’s early goals for her presidency was to increase visibility of the College through her participation in the New Haven community. To say this goal has been achieved is truly an understatement. She was chair of the Yale-New Haven Hospital Board of Trustees from 1992–1998 and today serves as its vice chair; chair of the of the Yale New Haven Health Services Corporation from 2001–2014 and currently vice chair; she was member of the board of New Alliance Bancshares, Inc. (formerly New Haven Savings Bank), and served as lead director from 2004–2011. She also served on the boards of The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven, International Festival of Arts & Ideas, United Way of Greater New Haven and Shubert Theatre, among others. In 1990, she became the first woman to serve on the committee of the Proprietors of the Common and Undivided Lands, which has overseen use of the Green since the founding of New Haven in 1638. She also serves on the boards of the Association of Catholic Colleges and Universities and the NewAlliance Foundation. Honors Dr. McNamara has received numerous awards over the years. Since 2000 she has been honored, for example, with the Wilbur L. Cross Medal of the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences at Yale University and the Spirit of Hope Award of Junior Achievement of Southwest New England; and by Sacred Heart Academy, Boy Scouts of America, Lauralton Hall, New Haven Symphony Orchestra and Girl Scouts of Connecticut. In April of this year, the City of New Haven honored Dr. McNamara at its 378th Birthday Celebration. Julia M. McNamara has been a dedicated servant-leader, faithful to the Dominican traditions and spirit of the College. Her commitment to this special place has been steadfast and unwavering. She, indeed, has transformed this small college with big ideas put into action. Albertus Magnus College is ever grateful. From the Hill

Reunion 2016

Reunion 2016 was a wonderful occasion to celebrate milestone classes ending in 1 and 6. The Alumni Association proudly inducted the Class of 1966 into the Golden Society and honored two outstanding women for their personal and professional accomplishments: Cindy Carlson ’11, ’15 M.S. Human Services with the Premier Achievement Award and Maria Shea Terrell ’73 as Alumni of the Year (see page 9 for more).

Around Campus Sr. Joan Scanlon, O.P., has joined the College as interim assistant to the President for Dominican Mission for the 2016–2017 academic year. Most recently, she has served on the Leadership Team of the Dominican Sisters of Peace. She holds a Ph.D. (pastoral counseling and psychology) from Northwestern University, Evanston, Illinois; M.A. (counseling psychology) from Loyola University, Chicago; and B.A. (English and French) from Siena College, Memphis, Tennessee. Albertus Magnus College will offer two certified programs in Financial Planning and Accounting this fall. Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards Inc. (CFP Board) has approved and registered the Albertus Certified Financial Planner undergraduate program. Part of the College’s Bachelor of Science in Finance degree program, the new offering will be the only CFP Board approved undergraduate program in the state of Connecticut. The new Personal Financial Specialist Concentration within the Master of Science in Accounting program will be sponsored and promoted by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). Albertus will be the first program in the country to offer this course sponsored by AICPA. Dr. Patty Compagnone-Post and her colleagues, Dr. Mark Barreuther, Dr. Mark Case and Dr. Loel Tronsky, have had their S-STEM (ScholarshipScience Technology Engineering Mathematics) grant proposal selected for funding by the National Science Foundation. The award of $649,842 over five years will fund scholarships and capacity-building activities intended to increase the number of students who are prepared to enter the workforce or to pursue graduate studies in the field of biology, chemistry or mathematics. “The Evelyn Garrity Memorial Scholarship Program for Mathematics and Sciences Study” honors the late Dr. Garrity, ’48, a passionate advocate for the advancement of science, who taught at Albertus for several years. After retirement from the State University of New York at Old Westbury, where she taught and later served as dean of instruction, she returned to Albertus to direct the develop­ ment and renewal of science at the College. In 2005, the College conferred upon Dr. Garrity the degree of Doctor of Humane Letters honoris causa; she died in 2010. Abbe Miller, associate professor of art therapy and director of the Master of Arts in Art Therapy program, and Evie Lindemann, associate professor of art therapy and clinical coordinator of the graduate program, were quoted extensively in the New Haven Register article “Albertus Magnus art therapy program trains to provide creative healing” in March. The Albertus graduate program is the only graduate art therapy program in the state, and one of only 39 in the country.
