comes in many forms and from a variety of sources – in a video lab, on the lacrosse field, in the art studio, a quiet place in the sun, graduation day. Inspiration is everywhere. This past fiscal year, more than 1,749 individual donors – alums, parents, friends, board members, faculty and staff – were inspired to give back and support the mission of Chestnut Hill College. In this report are seven personal stories of what inspired donors to support Chestnut Hill College. What inspires us hopefully inspires you.


MISSION STATEMENT THE MISSION OF CHESTNUT HILL COLLEGE IS TO PROVIDE STUDENTS WITH HOLISTIC EDUCATION IN AN INCLUSIVE CATHOLIC COMMUNITY MARKED BY ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE, SHARED RESPONSIBILITY, PERSONAL AND PROFESSIONAL GROWTH, SERVICE TO ONE ANOTHER AND TO THE GLOBAL COMMUNITY, AND CONCERN FOR THE EARTH. Chestnut Hill College, founded by the Sisters of Saint Joseph in 1924, is an independent, Catholic institution that fosters equality through education. Faithful to its strong liberal arts tradition, Chestnut Hill College offers academic programs of excellence in the areas of undergraduate, graduate, and continuing studies. True to its Catholic heritage, Chestnut Hill College espouses the beliefs and values inherent in the Judeo-Christian tradition while it respects the contributions made by other faith traditions in the development of the whole person. The College nurtures a sense of integrity, spirituality, and social justice in all. The College community dedicates itself to four purposes in fulfilling this mission. It seeks:

• to provide avenues for students to achieve academic excellence and to pursue research in their major field or in interdisciplinary studies. The College encourages students to explore and experience diverse curricula and to participate in exchange programs with other institutions of higher education.

• to initiate links between the world of learning and the world of work through curricular planning, technological opportunities, and career preparation. The College guides students in applying theoretical learning through experiential education designed collaboratively by faculty and students.

• to uphold an atmosphere of communal respect in which all may clarify and articulate personal values and beliefs while exploring the ethical and moral dimensions underlying all relationships. The College encourages inter-faith opportunities by acquainting all students with Catholicism, its theology and its Judeo-Christian roots, and by engaging in dialogue with women and men of other beliefs.

• to create local and global connections that enable students to respond to the needs of others through serviceoriented enterprises. The College educates students to identify and to address issues of social justice and to work toward systemic change.

Voltaire writes “appreciation is a wonderful thing. It makes what is excellent in others belong to us as well.” What is that excellence in others but the example of a heart that gives out of gratitude for what it has received? Such thoughtfulness has a ripple effect that touches all who benefit from it. The benefactor gives a gift in gratitude and the recipient experiences gratitude for the gift, thus, there is a meeting of hearts in God. The act of thanks-giving, of going out of ourselves to the other in appreciation, imitates the dynamic action of God in creation, Who, in inexplicable generosity, shares the inexhaustible abundance of Divine goodness by creating the universe. While none of us has the resources to create a universe, we are especially grateful to all those who help us to improve the small world of our campus through thoughtful gifts of time and treasure. This past year, because of the great generosity of two CHC families, Jack and Rosemary Murphy Gulati ’61 and Michael and Margaret Carney McCaffery ’77, the College was able to transform two large and underutilized spaces into state-of-the-art facilities that have quickly become two of the most populated destinations at the College.

Fontbonne Hall, creating a gathering center where students can congregate. These spaces were designed by the innovative architectural firm, Casaccio & Yu Associates, AIA that specializes in mission-driven design. Believing that mission informs and directs the decisions we make, the values we espouse, and the faith we profess, administrators were anxious to collaborate with this group.

Likewise, in the McCaffery Lounge, students encounter the warmth and welcome of a fireplace reminiscent of the kitchen in the first home of the Sisters of Saint Joseph in Le Puy, France, where they were founded in 1650. Above the fireplace, there is a large decorative circular panel with the words, “Circle the City with Love,” in several different languages. These words are taken from a hymn written by a 21st century Sister of Saint Joseph, who was inspired by the exhortation of the SSJ Jesuit founder, Jean Pierre Medaille, to divide the “city” into sectors and determine the needs in each one so that they may be more readily met. “Circle the City with Love” appears in English, French, Spanish, Hindi, Japanese, and sign language to represent geographic areas where the Sisters of Saint Joseph serve and the original mission of the Sisters who came to Philadelphia to teach the deaf.

The result of this collaboration are three spaces

The incorporation of mission values, ideals, and appropriate quotations from past and present into the interior spaces of the College, as well as into the exterior architectural elements, is an effort to reinforce the core messages essential to an education at Chestnut Hill College.

Asked for the key to the College’s success, Patricia Agger ’63 recalled a quote from the late co-founder of Apple, Steve Jobs. “The reason Apple is able to create products like iPad is we always try to be at the intersection of technology and the liberal arts — to get the best of both.”

Linda Avila ’75 doesn’t just advocate for continuing education — she embodies it. After graduating with a degree in sociology, she earned a master’s degree in social work from Columbia University.
