Annual Report

A Message from the Vice President for Institutional Advancement If you strip away the layers of distinctive experiential pedagogy, a deep-rooted commitment to social and environmental justice, or the nuances of our multiple delivery methods—when it comes down to the core purpose of Prescott College—our reason for being is to educate students. Students are at the center of everything we do. Even fundraising. We must continually be answering the question from our donors, “How does my investment in Prescott College benefit students?” In this Annual Report we will attempt to tell you how your investment is benefiting students, not only now but also how it will continue to aid them on into the future. The 2012-2013 fiscal year was a building period for the Josephine Michell Arader Collection of natural history prints. Graham Arader, father of alumna Josephine Arader ’07 for whom the Collection is named, in a single-handed effort raised $785,033 toward its purchase. Graham, the largest and most significant dealer of rare maps, prints, and natural history watercolors within the United States, believes that the hottest topic on American college and university campuses today is the merger of art and science. He is surely putting his words into action for the benefit of Prescott College, and my hat is off to him. Thank you, Graham, for your fundraising efforts! Most great accomplishments take a village, so I would also like to thank: Tom Fleischner, faculty member in Environmental Studies and Director of the Natural History Institute; Jen Chandler ’00, Prescott College Art Gallery Coordinator and instructor in Arts & Letters; and Aryn LaBrake ’09, ’15 M.A. program, Advancement Assistant and Prospect Research Analyst, for all the extra time and effort they devoted to making the Arader Collection available to our students as well as the public. In the “on into the future” category, through your generosity this fiscal year, we have added six new endowments, bringing the total to 34. Four of the new endowments directly underwrite student scholars and their academic work; one supports a library and lounge where students can relax and do recreational reading, and another will provide for the international work of our faculty. Nearly 700 people stepped up this year with a gift to Prescott College’s Annual Fund for Academic Excellence, or our restricted and sponsored programs. I thank you for your investment in the College to finance our work today and ongoing. Take care,

Marjory J. Sente

P.S. Being as everything we do is about our students, we’ve chosen to emblazon the pages of this report with their faces. A special thank you goes to alumnus Travis Patterson ’09, an intensely talented photographer, who lent us images from his Senior Project Love’s Totems.

Prescott College Annual Report 2012-2013




The Year of Arader Carefully crafted illustrations of plants, birds, and other creatures adorn the halls of the historic Sisters of Mercy building at 220 Grove Avenue. Conservation Biology students discuss the extinction of the passenger pigeon, once one of the most abundant birds in the world until the early 20th century. Art students catalog and help curate an exhibit of rare and valuable artifacts from the Age of Discovery. And members of the quad-city community gather to hear about “The Naturalist’s Way of Seeing” from faculty member, nature photographer, and naturalist Walt Anderson. The entire Prescott College community, and the regional community beyond, have been and will continue to be touched by the Josephine Michell Arader Collection of natural history prints for many years to come. It can easily be said that this was “The Year of Arader.” Alumna Josephine Arader ’07 helped facilitate the loan of a $1.2 million collection of natural history prints from the 16th through 19th centuries to Prescott College. Although Josephine’s original letter suggesting we participate in her father Graham Arader’s “Educating the Next Generation” program arrived in 2011, it took almost a year to work out the details and take delivery of the 250-plus pieces. At this point more than 80 percent of the collection has been donated to the College, contributing to the enormous restricted gift income of $2,616,546 we experienced in the 2012-2013 fiscal year. “This art is a priceless educational resource,” says Natural History Institute Director and On-Campus Undergraduate faculty member Tom Fleischner. “Art students helped catalog the collection, humanities students are using certain pieces as writing prompts, and conservation biology classes have gained new perspectives on the history of conservation successes and failures in North America by close examination of a set of Audubon prints specially selected for this purpose.” Vice President for Institutional Advancement Marjory Sente sees the collection as a unique opportunity for outreach. “This is the only collection of its kind in the entire Southwest,” Sente says. “Locally, Sharlot Hall, the Phippen, and the Smoki museums are all about the history and culture of people. The Natural History Institute, enhanced by the Arader collection, will fill a clear void and become the museum of our natural world.” A special exhibit of the collection at the Prescott College Art Gallery at Sam Hill Warehouse and grand opening for the Natural History Institute took place at the beginning of November 2013. The Gallery and Institute will continue to co-curate the collection ongoing. Prescott College Annual Report 2012-2013


An Eye Toward Diversity A significant component of Prescott College’s realization of diversity and inclusion emerges in the inspirational scholarly activism of our students. Whether it’s organizing youth praxis conferences, offering empowerment programming for adolescent women, facilitating educational camps for LGBTQ teens, or hosting initiatives of intercultural solidarity (to name just a few), our students lead the way with their visionary, innovative work. While the College’s student activism and our geographic location within the state of Arizona have positioned us on the front lines of social justice organizing and activism, ethnically and racially Prescott College has remained largely white among faculty and staff as well as student populations. Currently three endowments, developed within the past couple of years, will carry Prescott College’s diversity into the 21st century.

Minority Endowed Scholarship Fund The idea for the Lovejoy, Rifá, Hulmes Minority Endowed Scholarship came from Amparo Rifá ’89, wife of faculty member David Lovejoy ’73, when she realized that the current tuition at Prescott College would be unaffordable for her if she were starting college today. After some thought, Lovejoy approached fellow faculty member and alumnus Doug Hulmes ’74, who served with him on the College’s Diversity Committee at the time. David, Amparo, and Doug put together the seed money and upon hearing

about the idea, David’s mother contributed a significant portion in memory of Albert Lovejoy, David’s late father.

Ziesenheim Endowed International Scholarship & Faculty Endowment for International Studies Prescott College Board of Trustees member Ken Ziesenheim and his wife, Diane, have established two endowments: the Ziesenheim Endowed International Scholarship, and the Ziesenheim Faculty Endowment for International Studies. The student scholarship is intended for a student from a foreign country who plans to enroll at Prescott College. In the case no non-U.S.-citizens apply or qualify for the scholarship, a currently enrolled Prescott College student who wants to study abroad may be awarded the funds. The faculty award will benefit Prescott College faculty members who want to teach or study in a foreign country for one year. Deeply rooted in our desire to increase diversity and inclusion and to make our unique education accessible to a broader and deeper community, we have reduced our on-campus undergraduate tuition starting with the incoming resident undergraduate class of 2014. Additionally, we will be offering institutional aid in the form of the Bridge Grant to fill gaps for qualified students, including those covered by the Dream Act. Several other institutional efforts are under way to increase ethnic diversity among faculty and students, as dictated by the Prescott College 2020 Strategic Plan.

Prescott College Annual Report 2012-2013


Giving for the Future Our leaders have been laying groundwork for the future by building financial resilience into the budgeting process, adding and improving degree programs to enhance student success, and completing an ambitious campus improvement project. Nonetheless, as we approach our 50th anniversary in 2016 we find ourselves at a crossroads. The College typically depends on tuition and fees for 84 to 92 percent of its operating budget. Now, more than ever, we need to take control of our future by becoming less tuition dependent: able to carry out our mission to educate students of diverse ages and backgrounds to understand, thrive in, and enhance our world community and environment, beyond the mercy of every blip and dip in demographics or the vagaries of the economy. This “tuition independence” can be achieved most effectively and efficiently by growing our endowment and Annual Fund. In celebration of multiple milestones (including the 45th anniversary of Wilderness Orientation this year) and in anticipation of Prescott College’s half-century mark, we have instituted the 1966 Society to encourage larger gifts to the Annual Fund for Academic Excellence. The annual cost to attend Prescott College in its inaugural year was $2,500—$1,450 for tuition, $1,000 for room and board, and $50 in miscellaneous fees. When a donor contributes

$2,500 or more to the Annual Fund each year, they become members or renew membership among the College’s philanthropic leaders. More so than increasing Annual Fund revenue, growing the endowment and securing planned gifts are of the utmost importance in forging a path to financial stability and independence at Prescott College. With a minimum gift of $25,000, endowments are large gifts designed to keep the principal intact while using the investment income from dividends for charitable efforts, offering the most predictable long-term support. Planned gifts are not just bequests. Gift planning allows donors to make larger gifts than they could from their income and in many cases uses estate and tax planning techniques to maximize the gift. The truth is we welcome all gifts. Planned gifts can take many forms: make the College a beneficiary of your retirement plan or life insurance policy; transfer real estate to us, including your home, and continue to live there the rest of your life; use funds from your retirement IRA to make a gift and avoid undesirable tax effects; and much more. Frankly, the simplest way to plan your legacy at Prescott College is to name us in your will and let us know you have done so.

A Resource in Commons in the final proposal. Basically highly structured brainstorming sessions, the charrettes were attended by a broad sample of the Prescott College community and resulted in a plan for the Campus Commons that incorporates native and edible plants in landscaping, works of art, inlaid mosaic walkways, use of recycled materials, event spaces, curvilinear forms and pathways, and rainwater harvesting.

“The commons” were traditionally defined as elements of the natural world—trees, air, water, grazing lands—that are shared by everyone. Today, the commons also extend to the cultural sphere: arts, information, education, health, and infrastructure such as electricity or water delivery systems. At Prescott College the egalitarian traditions of our past carry on in both the cultural and environmental spheres. Last year President Woolever formed the Council of the Commons, a representative advising body that serves as a crossroads of information and communication for the College with representation from all internal constituencies.

Over the past couple of years the center of campus has been turned into a river of interlocking pavers and organically shaped seating and meeting areas that offer a sense of place, connecting us to the surrounding environment as well as welcoming the local community. Much of the Campus Commons is now complete, but planting and maintenance is ongoing in order to improve the functional and aesthetic benefit to students, employees, and visitors.

We also have a physical space that has been developed with the ideals of cultural and environmental sustainability in mind. Beginning in 2008, the College worked with the City of Prescott and the local neighborhood to acquire the alleyway that cuts through the main section of campus behind 220 Grove Avenue. This acquisition allowed the College to improve pedestrian and bicyclist safety and also begin development of a central Campus Commons area.

A campaign is currently underway for the adoption of native plants and trees, as well as the purchase of artwork, and the naming of seating and other structures necessary to fully realize the proposed plan. Contributions to the Campus Commons will last into the future, matching the lifespan of any tree, bench, or object donated. Donors’ names will be etched onto metal markers, and you can choose to memorialize or honor friends and loved ones with a literally living legacy.

From the start, a coordinating committee of faculty members, staff, alumni, and students has been engaged in designing the functional and aesthetic space. Several charrettes, a French word for collaborative design process, were employed to settle on the broad-stroke elements included

Prescott College Annual Report 2012-2013

Introducing Lifetime Giving Levels As a necessary step toward our 50th anniversary we have undertaken a review of historic giving to Prescott College and created a new set of Lifetime Giving Societies to recognize those who have helped pour the foundations we stand on today. Our Lifetime Giving Societies are named for gems and minerals found in the state of Arizona, honoring the essence that makes Prescott College strong and distinctive. For a current list of Lifetime Giving Society members, please visit www.

Platinum Society $5M and up A dense, malleable, precious, gray-white metal, platinum is one of the rarest elements in Earth’s crust. Nearly half of all platinum in the world is used as a catalyst in chemical reactions, most importantly in vehicle emissions control devices—catalytic converters. Platinum is found in Arizona, but only in trace amounts recovered during the refining of copper.

Gold Society $2.5M - $4.999M Gold, a dense, soft, shiny, and malleable bright yellow precious metal, has been highly sought-after for coinage, jewelry, and other arts since before the beginning of recorded history. Arizona’s heyday of gold production ran from 1860 through 1965 when it was ranked eighth among the gold-producing states.

Silver Society $1M - $2.499M A soft, white, lustrous precious metal, silver possesses the highest electrical conductivity of any element and the highest thermal conductivity of any metal. Silver mining in Arizona was a powerful stimulus for exploration and prospecting in the early years in several areas including Tombstone, Globe, and the Bradshaw Mountains near Prescott.

Onyx Society $500,000 - $999,999 Onyx is a banded variety of crystalline silica. The bands range from white to almost every color except for blue and purple. The most common onyx contains bands of black and/or white. Onyx is only found in three places: Arizona, Mexico, and Algeria. Arizona’s mines are all local to Prescott College; in Prescott, Mayer, and Ash Fork.

Azurite Society $250,000 - $499,999 Azurite is a soft, deep blue copper mineral produced by weathering of copper ore deposits. Bright blue pieces are often polished into cabochons and beads; large masses are sometimes cut into ornamental objects. Azurite was historically crushed and used as a blue pigment. In the U.S., most specimens are from numerous Arizona localities.

Garnet Society $100,000 - $249,999 Garnets are a group of silicate minerals used since the Bronze Age as gemstones and abrasives. Arizona is one of five states that commercially produces gem garnets. Arizona’s gem garnet, red pyrope, is from two mines on the Navajo Indian Reservation. Pyrope’s dark, blood-red color is distinct and attractive, making it the most well-known form of garnet.

Copper Society $50,000 - $99,999 Pure copper is soft, malleable, and highly conductive. A freshly exposed surface has a reddish-orange color; once oxidized it turns a blue-green hue. Copper and its alloys have been used for thousands of years as building and decorative materials, and it is essential to all living organisms as a trace dietary mineral. Arizona has several famous copper mines including one of the world’s largest in Bisbee.

Turquoise Society $25,000 - $49,999 An opaque, blue-to-green mineral, turquoise’s bright color has afforded it important gem use throughout several ancient civilizations in the Americas and the Middle East, and today it remains an important yet affordable gemstone. Important turquoise deposits throughout the Southwest include those found in Kingman and the Copper Cities Mine in Arizona.
