Alumnae Au Courant April 2018
An Update from Sacred Heart As previously communicated, the Board of Trustees has engaged a firm to work with Sacred Heart around a transparent, thorough examination of the environment for independent thinking and the articulate expression of ideas within the Sacred Heart curriculum and student life. As part of this process, Alumnae Association President Erinn Denson ’85, P’15, ’22(firstname.lastname@example.org) and Stephanie Viola ’12 (email@example.com) are representing the Alumnae community on the Working Group. In addition, an Alumnae Focus Group will be held in May as part of this process to include as many points of view from the Alumnae community. This has not been scheduled yet, but as soon as it is, we will share the date.
