Commitment It is with great pleasure that we recognize in this donor report the many committed donors who provided financial support to Chestnut Hill College this past year, helping the College to maintain its mission as a Catholic liberal arts institution. It’s much easier to make and keep a commitment when we deeply believe that our investment in time and attention will pay off in a big way. In this report, six donors share their personal stories of why they are committed to supporting Chestnut Hill College. With the support of loyal alumni and friends such as you, we will continue the proud work of building Chestnut Hill College into an even more outstanding place of higher learning than it is today. Your unfailing generosity profoundly affects the lives of our students and, indeed, the larger world as well. We are deeply grateful to each of you.



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.

An Investment

of Mind, Body, and Spirit

“We felt so blessed to be a part of this magnificent moment in the College’s history.” It didn’t take long for Ryan and Krista Murphy to feel a connection to the College. Right from day one, they felt a part of an extended family that genuinely cared about them and the work they did. Then, the College community gathered in Sorgenti Arena to celebrate the SugarLoaf acquisition, and the Murphys marveled at the sense of common purpose. “It was really special, like nothing I had experienced on a campus before,” Krista said. “We felt so blessed to be a part of this magnificent moment in the College’s history.” That moment inspired the Murphys to make a donation to the College in honor of their

WHAT AN OPPORTUNITY! “My education at Chestnut Hill is continuously providing me with the tools to succeed in the sciences. Last summer, I was fortunate enough to be one of eight students selected from around 200 applicants for the National Science Foundation’s Summer Research Experiences for Undergraduates Program held at Xavier University in New Orleans. For about three months, we researched a particular DNA sequence called Long Interspersed Element-1. This experience is one of the highlights of my college career, and I’m grateful to my professors for suggesting this research program to me and for supporting me with letters of recommendation.” Jason Scott Wasserman ’16 (biology/biological sciences) back home in the CHC molecular biology lab explains how to amplify a piece of DNA to produce multiple copies of a DNA sequence by using a PCR thermocycler.

“When we were freshmen, our dorms were the place we all got together. Now, with this McCaffery Lounge, we have special space to do our work by the fireplace and more places to be with other groups than we had in the dorm. We’re able to see more people, and we basically now have a social meeting spot to catch up with people from all classes, not just our own. It’s great, a great place to work on projects together, to have a snack, and to just hang out!” Jennifer Golding ’15 (history), Trevor Phelps ’14 (marketing), and Chris Shriver ’15 (computer and information technology) appreciating the transformed Fournier Social Room.

We were challenged to respond to a hypothetical foreign policy crisis based on real-life events happening in the East China Sea and the South China Sea, areas that continue to grow in world significance. The simulation gave our class an idea of what it’s like to be faced with the daunting decisions these officials must make on a regular basis as members of the NSC. This was an experience everyone in our class valued. We went at this with great preparation and intensity.”

“I really didn’t plan to move into this field, but my undergraduate foundation at Chestnut Hill was right on target for this newer field of computational biology. It’s also referred to as bioinformatics because it integrates biology, computer science, mathematical modeling, and statistics to solve data-heavy biological problems. Major teaching hospitals are among leaders in this area, as are pharmaceutical companies, as they look more and more to developing personalized medicine and examining pharmacogenomics. And I wasn’t even a biology major at CHC!”

JULY 1, 2012 – JUNE 30, 2013


EVERY FIVE YEARS, ALUMNI ARE ASKED TO CONSIDER A special gift to honor their memories of Chestnut Hill College and each other. For some, it is to increase their most recent gift, and for others, it is to make a special gift for the first time. Reunion year alumni are invited to choose from a variety of options that reflect their interest in specific needs of the College. These options include:

• The Griffin Fund – essential unrestricted support for day-to-day operations.

• Endowment – restricted gifts for student scholarships; academic programs.

• Other Gift Designations – such as student life, campus ministry, athletics, counseling center, Logue Library, special class funds, or specific department programs.

All Reunion class gifts received from July 1, 2012 through June 30, 2013 are counted toward the total dollars each class raises and toward their respective class participation rate.

In the mid 1960s, the field of engineering was all but closed to women. So when New Jersey Bell Telephone Company announced plans to hire three female engineers, Shelley Sprague Guerard ’66 fired off a letter.
