ANNUAL REPORT 2008-2009
From the President The ’00s: Better to Ripon than they were to most TIME magazine ran an article recently contending that the ’00s were the worst decade ever, and they made a strong case. There was the botched 2000 presidential election, 9/11, the tsunami, Katrina, Madoff, the bailout, Abu Gharib, Guantanamo and wars on two fronts. Millions of jobs went overseas, homes were lost and nest eggs were crushed. You may not agree it was the single worst decade ever, but you probably weren’t a big fan.
ipon College, by contrast, actually enjoyed something of a renaissance in the ’00s. Of course, I’ve only been here since 2003 so for some additional perspective on what kind of decade we had, I talked to Barbara McGowan from the history department, Jack Christ from the leadership studies department and Doug Northrop from English — three of our “superannuated” (to borrow a term from Barbara) professors here: “For Ripon, the experience has been mainly positive,” Barbara said. “Every member of the College community is aware of the fact that in 2001, long-term financial problems forced the layoff of staff and faculty and a significant reduction in programs and course offerings. But almost immediately, key college figures — particularly interim President David Williams, Dean of Faculty Bill Schang, and committed faculty and staff — rededicated themselves to the College’s core mission of serving students and providing an excellent liberal-arts education. The administration began to communicate calm, and students demonstrated pride rather than President David C. Joyce resentment. I do believe the nature of the student body helped us here, as most come from backgrounds in which temporary financial setbacks are accepted as part of life, and not a cause for panic or shame. “Since 2004, there have been many positive developments starting with balanced budgets, restored retirement funding, small-but-real raises … and increases in both faculty and staff. The admission staff has done a fantastic job of bringing good students to campus and enough of them. Of course, the most visible change has been in the physical appearance of campus. While education may be a spiritual exercise, appearances, comfort and convenience do matter. The renovation of Todd Wehr Hall, improvements to Great Hall and the reconfiguration of the campus have gone a long way toward making Ripon look as goo d as it is. Ripon in the last decade has continued to be a goo d place to work and learn, but it has also become more of a place that feels and looks like a progressive community.” Jack Christ believes the Ethical Leadership Program (ELP) was a positive development. He admits to some bias here. “When Ripon began addressing leadership behavior as an academic subject in 1980, we were literally the first undergraduate liberal-arts college to offer a minor in
leadership studies. We were responding to the challenge of widespread calls for new leadership in the wake of a general decline in confidence within the American public over the previous three decades and to a range of opportunities afforded by new insights about leadership behavior within the academic community, especially within the social sciences. Twenty-five years later, the ELP expanded Ripon’s commitment to the academic study of leadership behavior to include an all-campus, all-department, all-studentorganization approach to leadership development. At roughly the same time, Ripon adopted a far -reaching mission statement which included a strong commitment to leadership and citizenship in all walks of life.” Doug Northrop agrees it was a goo d decade to be at Ripon on a few other fronts. “So much has happened in the first decade of the new century … beginning with a balanced budget (indeed some surpluses to help in harder times) and the increased and increasingly diversified student and faculty bo dies,” he said. “The upgraded facilities include a Todd Wehr Hall that is enhanced aesthetically as well as functionally. The center of campus is closed to cars and has a usable green space, which also feeds into our bicycle-friendly campus. All of these things lead to our new 10-year accreditation approval. “But the thing I notice most is the quality of student engagement. This energy and enthusiasm for Ripon and for the total educational program are shown in many ways: the vitality of the College Days, the occasion of our third Rho des Scholar, the establishment of the Honor Co de, the McNair scholars extending the possibilities for student-faculty research. All of these items show how learning is not a passive but an active quality on campus. The Collaborative Research Center with its cadre of mentors has stimulated student-tostudent learning and made the center not a remedial facility but a kind of honors college where our best students gather to work with each other. The community involvement of our students has taken many forms, including the work done in the ELP. And what is most exciting about these developments is that they are just beginning and hold great promise for expansion in the future.”
hile Ripon and the higher education market, in general, is going to hit some roadblocks and see interesting new trends develop, such has always been the case. As we close the books on the past decade, I hope all of you agree that we took many more steps forward than back and that we’re ready to face the challenges of those yet to come. As Professor Northrop noted, “We’re in a good place, and it is getting better.” With warm Holiday tidings to you and yours,
Dr. David C. Joyce President email@example.com
EARLY WINTER 2009
The Year in Review The College continued to receive accolades and grants from various sources and welcomed one of the largest incoming classes in more than 25 years. Students found a much more pedestrian-friendly campus with the removal of campus portions of Seward and Elm streets and the addition of more green space. These were just a few of the highlights of the 2008-09 year. We share several more on the following pages.

THANK YOU: The Honor Roll of Donors Few of the wonderful student achievements or campus improvements would be possible without the generosity of Ripon College’s friends and alumni. These thoughtful groups and individuals make the Ripon educational experience a reality through their gifts and contributions. For the fifth consecutive year, Ripon exceeded its $2.2-million-dollar annual fund goal. Listed here are the individuals, families, businesses and foundations who supported Ripon during the last year. Thank you.
VOL. 42, NO. 4
The 2008-09 Year in Review Ripon College must be doing something right. As you read through the highlights of the 2008-09 academic year that we’ve summarized here, you will see that things are going well for the “college on the hill.” Student enrollment continues to be strong. To support it, Ripon once again met its annual fund-raising goal despite a questionable economy and in great thanks to the generosity of the donors listed within the later pages of this publication. Fund-raising, Student-recruitment Efforts Successful The 2008-09 fiscal year was a banner one on many levels despite the sagging economy. From the very beginning of the economic crisis, President David Joyce was quick to point out the “opportunity” it presented for Ripon. “Our relatively small endowment draw has buffered us somewhat from the same magnitude of budget woes that many peer institutions now face,” he said. “Our belts are tight already. We don’t need to blow our goals out of the water — we need only to meet them.” Ripon did meet its annual fund goal for the fifth consecutive year. In fact, the College exceeded its $2.2 million dollar target by nearly $55,000. The College also exceeded its student-recruitment goals, welcoming the largest class in more than a quarter century. The class consisted of 284 first-time, first-year students, the largest incoming class since 1982. At a total of 316 students, Ripon’s new student population included 32 transfer students and augmented the institution’s total enrollment of 1,057 students — the largest since 1972. Much of the year’s recruiting success was owed to the 1,081 applications received by the office of admission, which shattered the all-time record of 1,029 applications set in 1965. The national attention from the Ripon Velorution Project may have helped contribute to the num ber of quality applicants. In fact, 2 RIPON MAGAZINE
more than 160 of the first-year students took the Velorution pledge. In a year when alumni giving did drop slightly, giving from those closest to the institution — its faculty and staff — increased. Employee participation in the annual fund reached 85 percent, a 38-percent increase from and more than $10,000 greater than the year prior. “Our faculty and staff realized the importance and responded positively to the necessity of reaching the annual fund goal this year,” said Joyce. “It is a strong show of conviction in the mission of this College. I recognize and greatly appreciate how much our faculty and staff do and how well they do it for Ripon College.” The continued success of the annual fund-raising program and consistent student-recruitment efforts have played a significant role in the College’s ability to balance the budg-
et in each of the past six years. While the market tumble affected the College’s bottom line, Joyce was quick to point out that “All things considered, the College is in goo d health.”
Publications Recognize Ripon Ripon College once again has been recognized for its outstanding liberalarts education. Ripon ranked among the top three colleges and universities in Wisconsin and 109th in the nation, according to a new “America’s Best Colleges” ranking by Forbes magazine. The rankings’ unique methodology placed Ripon well ahead of larger and betterknown institutions such as the University of Wisconsin-Madison, UCLA, Cornell and the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor, just to name a few. The Princeton Review also recognized Ripon among the nation’s best institutions for undergraduate education. The New York-based education services company known for its testprep courses featured Ripon in the 2009 edition of its annual book, The

Best 368 Colleges. Only about 15 percent of America’s 2,500 four-year colleges and two Canadian colleges are in the book. It has two-page profiles of the schools and student survey-based ranking lists of top 20 colleges in more than 60 categories.
President’s Honor Roll for Ripon The corporation for National and Community Service honored Ripon with a place on the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll for exemplary service efforts and service to America’s communities. “Ripon College counts civic engagement and service among its most cherished values,” said President David Joyce. “This honor is a validation of how our students, faculty and staff put those values to work every day for the betterment of the community.” Launched in 2006, the Community Service Honor Roll is the highest federal recognition a school can achieve for commitment to service-learning and civic engagement. Honorees for the award were chosen based on a series of selection factors, including scope and innovation of service projects, percentage of student participation in service activities, incentive for service, and the extent to which the school offers academic servicelearning courses. Ripon’s the Office of Community Engagement helps bring together continuing student placements, onetime volunteer opportunities, service learning and the Bonner Leadership program. Deano Pape, director of community engagement, said the office fills a vital role. “The office of community engagement is a centralized place where community partners can get the help they need,” said Pape. “Our students, faculty and staff can also use the services of our office to grow, learn and serve the community at the same time.”
Streets No Longer Intersect Heart of Campus Where Seward and Elm streets previously intersected just outside the Great Hall of the Harwoo d Memorial Union there is now a pedestrian walkway and additional green space. The makeover also includes new trees and plantings as well as outdoor seating venues near the Pub and Pickard Commons. The $1 million project was financed as part of the numerous capital improvements — including the Campus Apartments, the new physical plant building and renovations to Pickard Commons — begun in 2006.
Ripon Participates in Wabash Study Ripon was one of 27 United States colleges and universities to be invited to participate in the Wabash National Study of Liberal Arts Education. Twenty-six of those institutions participated in the first two rounds of the study based at the Center of Inquiry in the Liberal Arts at Wabash College in Crawfordsville, Ind. Ripon is the newcomer. The Wabash National Study focuses on understanding the conditions and practices that promote the development of seven liberal arts outcomes: Effective reasoning and problem-solving, inclination to inquire and lifelong learning, integration of learning, intercultural effectiveness, leadership, moral reasoning and well-being. Gerald Seaman, vice president and dean of faculty at Ripon, said that participation in the Wabash National Study “builds on current efforts at the College to assess student learning and understand how the curriculum and programs affect students’ skill development, critical thinking and attitudes towards lifelong learning. As a liberal arts col lege, we want to know that an education here helps students develop both a robust knowledge base and curiosity about the world.”
CIC Awards $100,000 Wal-Mart Grant Ripon was selected by the Council of Independent Colleges (CIC) to receive the Wal-Mart College Success Award — a $100,000 grant to help build on Ripon’s demonstrated successes in enrolling, retaining and graduating first-generation college students. Ripon was one of only 20 colleges selected through a highly competitive application process to receive the award, which is intended to help institutions that already are deeply committed to the education of first-generation students. “We are honored that the CIC and Wal-Mart have selected Ripon as one of the 20 private institutions of higher education in the country to receive this grant,” said Dan Krhin, director of Student Support Services at Ripon. “It is impressive that WalMart has dedicated funding for this important national educational initiative, which will bolster our ongoing efforts in retention and graduation, and provide exciting additional support for our students in areas linking liberal arts and career opportunities.”
Kharbush ’09 Awarded NSF Jenan Kharbush, a 2009 graduate of Ripon, was awarded a National Science Foundation (NSF) graduate fellowship to pursue a doctorate in marine chemistry at the University of California-San Diego’s Scripps Institution of Oceanography. Only one in 10 applicants receive the award, which provides support for three years of graduate study, including an Jenan annual stipend, Kharbush ’09 annual tuition allowance, funds for foreign travel and access to the NSF’s supercomputing resources. It is awarded based on student’s intellectual merit and potential to conduct and contribute EARLY WINTER 2009 3

Rachel Resop ’08, who is now studying microbiology at UCLA, was one of the honorable mentions for the 2009 NSF graduate fellowship.
Pulitzer Prize Finalist Speaks at Commencement Robert Sean Wilentz, the Sidney and Ruth Lapidus Professor of History in the American Revolutionary Era at Princeton University, spoke at the 143rd Commencement ceremony at Ripon and was an honorary degree recipient. The theme for the 2009 Commencement was “Democracy and the Presidency.” Wilentz’s book The Rise of American Democracy: Jefferson to Lincoln (2005) was awarded the Bancroft prize and was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. “It’s a special thrill being at Ripon, not only as an extraordinary college but as a historical place in precisely that era of American history that fas cinates me the most,” said Wilentz. Also receiving an honorary degree was Gwendolynne Moore, who has been a Representative of Wisconsin’s Fourth Congressional District since January 2005. She serves on both the House Committee on Financial Services and the House Budget Committee. 4 RIPON MAGAZINE
The Ethical Leadership Program (ELP) held its fourth annual leadership conference in April with support from the College’s Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE) organization. This year’s theme was, “Going Green: How it Can Benefit You, Your Business and Yourself.” The conference was an informative, fun-packed day directed toward helping both small and large businesses become environmentally responsible. Participants learned about the pressing needs of the environment and how everyday decisions affect it. Training about steps and practices to make businesses both more sustainable and cost-effective was offered. Bill Shireman provided the keynote address for the conference.

Chuck Downs on Foreign Policy The Ripon College International Relations Club brought speaker Chuck Downs to speak with the
Ripon community. Downs is executive director of the United States Committee for Human Rights in North Korea. He was on the board of the committee for human rights in the Pentagon’s East Asia Office from 2001-2008, and acted as treasurer from 2004-2008. While visiting Ripon, Downs addressed issues of foreign policy and human rights present in North Korea.
Holmes ’57 Honored with 2009 Founders’ Award The late Sam Holmes ’57 was honored with the 2009 Founders’ Day award. The College recognized Holmes, who died in October 2008, for embo dying the spirit of its founders. “[Sam] was known for a moral and ethical compass that always pointed due north,” said President David Joyce. Holmes regularly performed quiet, random acts of kindness for friends, neighbors and even strangers. His friends recognized that it was appro priate that he received this award posthumously, because the recognition would have made him uncom fortable. His wife, Yvonne, and his grandson, Nick Revello ’10, accepted the award on his behalf. After graduating from Ripon College, Holmes became an insurance agent, a job he held for more than 40 years. His venture into out door furniture later in life earned him the title of “Sam the Patio Man.”
Theatre Students Finalists in Kennedy Center Competition The theatre department boasted seven students competing for recognition in performance, design and stage management at the annual Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival (KCACTF) at Saginaw Valley State University in Michigan. Jessica Mann ’10 reached the finals competition in lighting design and finished with an honorable mention, which equates to a third place. She also, along with Nick Osenberg ’11, reached the finals in the stage
management competition. Cady Cummings ’10, Brandi Gaspard ’10, Ashley Retzlaff ’11 and Paul Steffens ’10 were nominated for the Irene Ryan Audition Competition. A nomination suggests that the contestant is in the top 10 percent of college actors in Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Ohio. Robyn Zajac ’11 received a third place in the Critic’s competition. She was one of 14 students accepted as part of the Critics Institute for the festival.
Thompson Returns for MLK Week Ripon College’s week of events commemorating the work of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. culminated by honoring the Rev. Jerome “Jerry” H. Thompson. Thompson served as the College’s chaplain and professor of religion from 1961 until his retirement in 1983. In February 1965, Thompson led a group of Ripon students to Selma, Ala., to march with Dr. The Rev. Jerry King during the Thompson civil-rights struggle in America. Several of his students returned with him, including Dave Minor ’68, Gary Yerkey ’66, Larry Tice ’65 and Dick Grimsrud ’65, to honor Thompson and to rec ognize him as their mentor in social justice. Thompson spoke of his experiences in a panel discussion with his previous students, and also led a peace vigil through Ripon to commemorate Dr. King’s support for nonviolent solutions to war.

Summit was one of Ripon’s own — Jim Haney ’76. The topic of the summit was ethical issues related to communication about crime in American culture. Haney, a communication professor at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, shared his insights as a professor and as a former director of research and information for the Wisconsin Department of Justice. The Youth Summit, which marked its third year in 2009, not only offers an educational experience for students in Ripon’s communication department, but also allows those students to share the topic with high school students through workshops.

Forensics Team Boasts National Champions Ripon sent three students to nationals at the American Forensics Association District IV tournament hosted by Gustavus Adolphus College in March. Garrison McMurtrey ’11 of Canton, Miss., was named tournament champion in After Dinner Speaking for his speech about the commercialization of President Barack Obama. McMurtrey also took second place in extemporaneous speaking and fifth place in impromptu speaking. He also brought his duo with Jeff M. Davis ’10 of Rockton, Ill. Luke Lockhart ’10 from Richland Center, Wis., was tournament champion in extemporaneous speaking and competed in impromptu speaking. Director of Forensics Deano Pape was honored with the Larry Schnoor Distinguished Service Award, the highest coaching honor bestowed at the district level, for his service to the forensics community. “To say that we have grown new wings and taken flight in the past two years is an understatement,” said Pape. “I could not be more proud of this team and this College. We are, indeed, very fortunate to have such quality students representing our institution.”

SIFE Takes Second at Nationals After securing a regional championship in Chicago, the Ripon College Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE) team headed to Philadelphia for national competition. There, Ripon took second place in the Entrepreneurial Topic Competition for the formation of the Creative Enterprise Center, a student-led consulting business that assists community businesses and organizations. Ripon was represented by Chris Larsen ’09 and Paul Williams ’10. The team consisted of 31 active members and completed more than 1,500 total hours, 15 total projects and impacted more than 2,200 people, according to Associate Professor of Business Management Mary Avery, the team’s adviser. “We have 19 different majors in SIFE, and I know that the diversity of interests and abilities is what sets us apart,” said Avery. “There’s a lot of collaboration. SIFE service opportunities take what students are doing in the classroom and apply those lessons directly to community problems.”
2009 May Bumby Severy Award Assistant Professor of History Rebecca Berens Matzke was awarded the 2009 May Bumby Severy Award, which recognizes excellence in undergraduate teaching. Matzke was
born and raised in Seward, Neb. — “a little college town amazingly like Ripon,” according to Matzke — which is where her interests in education and Rebecca Matzke history began. Her parents were elementary and junior high school teachers, and her love of history stemmed from the auctions she went to with her father. In nominating Matzke for this award, one of her colleagues wrote: “Her energy and enthusiasm fill the classroom.” “That seems to make a big difference to students, when they see that you really love the subject and that you’re not just going through the motions,” Matzke said.
Baerenwald ’12 takes third at Nationals As a first-year student at Ripon, Heidi Baerenwald was the Red Hawks sole representative at the 2009 NCAA National Outdoor Track & Field Championships. She finished third in the shot put with a school-record throw of 4606.75. The distance was only five feet off the mark of the 2009 champion and eight inches fewer the secondplace finisher. Baerenwald’s throw was the Heidi longest of any Baerenwald ’12 Wisconsin athlete and was also the best in the Midwest Conference. Baerenwald earned 2009 All-American honors and was also the only first-year student to qualify for nationals. R

Ripon College Alumni Association Annual Report 2008-2009
he dedication of the more than 10,000 living alumni of Ripon College never seems to amaze me. The pride I feel when I look at the many accomplishments over the past year should also resonate with each and every one of you. It is because of your time, commitment, ideas and financial Dante A. C. contributions that Houston ’01 we are able to continue the legacy of a top-notch liberal arts institution. As the newly elected president of the Ripon College Alumni Board of Directors, I, along my vice president, Nick Spaeth ’04, want to ensure there is engagement of all eras of the alumni family; more experienced as well as young alumni. Each year, we are fortunate to welcome a new group of alumni. The Class of 2009 graduated in May and officially joined our ranks. Their senior class gift provided trees to continue with campus beautification and sustainability. While you — members of the graduating class — have stepped outside the walls of our noble alma mater during very troubling economic times, we know you will be successful in your chosen careers and graduate schools. We wish you well in all your endeavors.
key goal of the Alumni Board of Directors is supporting the college in meeting its Annual Fund goal. The Ripon College Unrestricted Annual Fund for current college operations finished the fiscal year on June 30 with 14 RIPON MAGAZINE
$2,254,977 in total revenue, exceeding the college’s $2.2 million dollar goal. This marks the fifth consecutive year Ripon has been able to exceed its goal. Meeting the Annual Fund goal during the challenging economic times of fiscal year 2009 is a testament to the deep commitment of our alumni, parents, friends and employees. Thank you! Those of you who haven’t returned to campus in awhile should give yourself the gift of doing so. You’ll be greeted by familiar faces like that of Associate Dean of Faculty and Registrar Michele Baran Wittler ’76, who always says to me, “Welcome home!” Those two words summarize the experience of connecting with classmates and breathing in the educated air that resonates on campus. Alumni Weekend, hosted each year in June, is a great opportunity to do so. Walk through the newly erected welcome pillars, take in the renovated Pub, venture past the new green space or visit some older, more familiar spaces. I’m positive you’ll find a space or face that will make you feel at home. A Different Kind of College Ranking named Ripon College one of the Top 30 Liberal Arts colleges in the country. This ranking represents what students and alumni are doing in the community and how those with a Ripon education excel at extending the helping hand. My many thanks to the 30 members of the Alumni Board of Directors and the 95 class agents. It is because of their many contributions that prospective students are distributed information about Ripon through the Alumni/Parent Admission Alliance (AAA) program; current students were able to take advantage of the third annual speaker series “Ripon’s Return on
Investment,” utilize an alumni biography database and enjoy their cap and gown celebration; while alumni were able to come back to a renewed energy during Alumni Weekend with new activities and continue to gain insight into our Alma Mater. None of these things would be possible without the continued efforts and commitment of dedicated alumni.
s with past administrations of the Alumni Association, we will continue as an action board. Your dedicated group of volunteers are poised to move forward with purposeful expansion of actions. We have heard your suggestions and will be providing Consistent and Constant Communication (CCC) through regular articles in the Alumni Quarterly Magazine, an “Alumni Corner” on the MyRipon Web site (my.ripon.edu) as well as updated information delivered through online social media and networking. I am excited to see the outcomes of the planned initiatives for the next year. You will be proud of the accomplishments. There will be representation by alumni on panel discussions at all admissionsponsored on-campus events, involvement in international student recruitment, a Ripon Alumni Teacher Summit, an integrated focus on philanthropy, and an effort to promote the spirit of Ripon College. I welcome your thoughts and insights, along with your continued contributions. My thanks, again, for another great year!

Benefactors A Lifetime of Philanthropy
ipon College names these alumni and friends as Ripon College Benefactors in recognition of their lifetime philanthropy and significant gifts. Their philanthropic efforts have played a pivotal role in the life of the College since its founding in 1851. The generosity of these Benefactors continues to assist generations of students and to enhance the liberal arts mission and financial stability of Ripon College. We gratefully acknowledge and thank them for their altruism and tradition of caring for the college community . It also is appropriate to acknowledge the role of the founders of the Lyceum and Brockway College, the predecessors of Ripon College. Through the foresight of the founders, Ripon College evolved. W e honor them for their commitment and determination. These founders, including David P. Mapes, who gave the first acre of land, and Alvan E. Bovay, who helped him stake the site, had a dedication to education that is the essence of all Ripon College Benefactors. Alvan E. Bovay Jehdeiah Bowen Warren Chase John Scott Horner

Partners in the Legacy Ripon College’s Planned Gift Associates
artners in the Legacy was established in 1995 to recognize alumni and friends whose concern for the long-term future of Ripon College is manifested through making estate plans which include the College. Partners in the Legacy move the College toward greater fiscal stability through endowments and other gifts their estate plans provide. These individuals have made their commitment to enhancing Ripon’s outstanding liberal arts educational experience for future generations of Ripon College students. The more than 500 individuals listed here have remembered the College in the form of a bequest or a planned gift and have a special place in the college’ s history. They also have supported ongoing programs and, in many cases, have endowed the College in specific areas, creating a personal legacy and a permanent record of their affection for Ripon. We are grateful for this far-sighted planning by such dedicated alumni and friends.

Partners: Cochranes: ‘It’s our duty’ Jim ’52 and Jo Klawiter Cochrane ’51 of Lake Geneva, Wis., are Partners in the Legacy because they have great love for and confidence in the institution that helped shape their futures. After graduating from Ripon, Jim worked for Illinois Bell for his entire career, in the commercial, traffic and plant departments, retiring as district manager in 1990. Jo worked at Northwestern University as director of teacher placement, then at New Trier High School in Winnetka, Ill., before retiring to raise their family of four children. Both are ordained elders in the Presbyterian Church USA, and for more than 30 years they have helped organize and lead senior high school mission work trips throughout the United States for First Presbyterian Church in Lake Forest, Ill. Jo also directed the children’s choirs at the church for more than 15 years. Jim recently retired as a member of the board of directors of Wonderland Camp, a camp for handicapped children and adults, in Rocky Mount, Mo. He still serves on the board of directors of the Boggs

Rural Life Center located in southern Georgia. The couple spends summers with their families at their Gilbert Lake, Wis., cottage. This summer, Jim and Jo celebrated their 80th birthdays with a special surprise that incorporated their continuing love of Ripon College. Their children arranged a driving trip through the Green Lake area, including a stop on the Ripon campus to see “our tree, in a perfect spot on Ingram Hill,” Jo says. The tree had been donated in 2003 by their families to honor their 50th wedding anniversary. “After taking some pictures,” Jo continues, “we stopped at the Commons for a rest break before moving on

— or so we thought. The door was open, and we walked into the lower level. Here was this big ‘Happy Birthday, Jim and Jo’ poster — courtesy of the College — and tables with hors d’oeuvres and martini glasses. Later, we all went upstairs to the President’s Dining Room for an elegant dinner. The sharing of a beautifully decorated birthday cake — with ‘Happy 80th, Mom and Dad’ — topped off an unforgettable evening. The fact that our kids arranged it all and that it took place on campus was especially meaningful to us.” Jim adds, “Seeing that we both hailed from small Wisconsin towns, our Ripon College experiences certainly opened our eyes to new possibilities for our lives and broadened our horizons more than we could ever have imagined. We’re grateful for what those four years gave us and feel it’s our responsibility — actually our duty — to help ensure that our alma mater continues to excel and to impact others’ lives, as it did ours. Being Partners in the Legacy is an expression of our confidence in the future of Ripon College.”

Scholarships & Endowed Funds
eading a list of endowed funds is a bit like looking at a snapshot in the history of an institution. We see names that have become intertwined with the progress of this College, names of individuals, couples and families who have made that progress possible. W e see classes that have chosen to be remembered collectively by contributing to the future of their beloved alma mater through an endowed fund — unrestricted or for some ongoing commitment such as the purchase of library materials or for a scholarship for future generations of students. There are funds for endowed chairs and professorships; equally as important are endowments for the maintenance of the College’s physical plant or a designated portion therein. As you read through this year’s endowment list, you will notice some funds are in bold print. These endowments received new gifts during the 2008-09 fiscal year. Some fund names are in italics. These are new endowments for which an endowment agreement was signed and an account established during this fiscal year. Some have both designations, having been initiated and at least partially funded during the year. You may see an endowment you would like to augment — perhaps one honoring a favorite professor, a friend or a relative. Your class may have a fund. You may be inspired to initiate an endowment of your own. Each type of endowed fund has a specified minimum amount, based on the purpose for which the annual disbursements are designated. Agreements may be developed and signed for endowments that will be funded in the future through any type of estate gift. After an endowment is established, gifts of any amount may be added to that fund. If you have any questions about these endowments or wish to make a gift to an established fund, please contact the Advancement Office toll-free at 877-231-0455 or send an e-mail to Bill Neill (email@example.com).

The Leadership Alliance
ipon College launched the Leadership Alliance in 2005 to recognize alumni and friends who make five-year pledges of $1,000 or more, annually, in support of the College’s mission and vision for the future. We extend heartfelt thanks and congratulations to the following members of Ripon College’s Leadership Alliance. These individuals and couples understand that stable unrestricted funding over time makes a tremendous difference in long-range planning and budgeting.

Annual Giving Societies
Ripon College’s annual giving societies recognize individuals and couples who make their commitments year by year . The College community relies on these generous people whose contributions fund scholarships; enhance Lane Library; support academic, student-life and athletic programs; and, in a variety of other ways, keep the fires of achievement burning. Ripon College is proud to honor all those whose gifts during the 2007-2008 fiscal year place them in one of the following annual giving societies:
$25,000 or more
Wilfrid of Ripon
$1,000 - $2,499
The founders of Ripon College demonstrated their commitment to an excellent liberal arts education with leadership gifts. Members of the Founders’ Society confirm their dedication and continue the tradition of excellence.
Seventh-century prelate Wilfrid of Ripon was one of the first to articulate the concept of the liberal arts. The College recognizes individuals who show their support of Ripon’s liberal arts mission with membership in the W ilfrid of Ripon Society.
William S. Brockway
$18,000 - $24,999
The presidents of Ripon College have maintained a consistent focus on the students. By making a minimum gift of $18,000, members of the Presidents’ Society show their support for today’s students.
Without William S. Brockway’s initial investment, Ripon College would not exist today. Members of the William S. Brockway Society invest in the future of Ripon, confirming their commitment to a quality, personal liberal arts education.
Jeremiah W. Walcott$10,000 - $17,999 Heritage In 1853, the Rev. Jeremiah W. Walcott provided the funds which made possible the first classes at Brockway College. Gifts from members of the Jeremiah W. Walcott Society provide the means to enhance and expand the programs offered at Ripon College today.
larissa Tucker Tracy $5,000 - $9,999
Known to many as the “mother of Ripon College,” Clarissa Tucker Tracy served as teacher and mentor to students from 1859 to 1905. Contributions from members of the Clarissa Tucker Tracy Society allow future students to grow and learn under the tutelage of today’s dedicated faculty.
Orrin H. Ingram
$2,500 - $4,999

$150 - $499
The Ripon College heritage is a proud tradition of excellence and growth. Heritage Society members make possible the continuation of Ripon’s reputation as an institution of the highest order.
T he 833 Club

By contributing just $8.33 per month — roughly $100 annually — by automatic fund transfer or credit card deduction, the members of this club are doing their part to make Ripon a better place for current students.

It was either just before or during graduate school, and heaven knows I didn’t have much disposable income. As my career has progressed, and I’ve evolved into a position where I have more disposable income, I’ve tried to increase my giving proportionally.” Mark came to Ripon after looking at college literature and liking the look of small colleges. After a presentation about Ripon was given at his high school in Colorado, he visited the Ripon campus and one in his home state. “The experiences I had during those visits are what absolutely convinced me I wanted to go to Ripon,” Mark Arthur Wong 52 Orrin H.

Parents: This couple believes in giving back Ripon parents Larry Sisco and Deborah Sundmacher of Carlsbad, Calif., are enthusiastic participants on the Parents’ Advisory Committee and find it helps keep them close to their daughter, Sara Sisco ’11. “I wanted to be part of the discussion of programs that affect the quality of life and student education at the College, and I wanted to contribute my voice,” Deborah says. “There’s so much you learn when you’re on the advisory board that you wouldn’t normally know — especially with us in California and her so far away. To be able to be in a meeting and listen to what the president, the vice president and deans have to say helps us to understand what she’s experiencing and how we can help.” Deborah grew up in Wisconsin and graduated from Hartford High School. She wanted to go to Ripon but

ended up attending the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor. After receiving her master’s degree from the University of San Diego, she now is a professor of English there. Larry attended Montgomery College in Maryland and is a semiretired businessman. “When Sara was looking for a school, I took her to Ripon,” Deborah says. “Sara had always been in small schools from the time she was in kindergarten. She was used to a smaller environment, and she liked that about Ripon. “When we visited, we saw that everyone there truly believes — from the faculty to the students — that this is the right place for them and they’re just in love with the place.” Larry adds that Sara also really liked the politics and

Deborah says they have many friends with children attending other schools, but not all of them are having good experiences. “Ripon has been such a phenomenal experience for Sara,” Deborah says. “She loves it there.

big schools don’t. Sara’s been able to get involved in a wide range of activities. One night she had eight meetings! A small environment is great for a kid who really wants to participate. The staff and professors are so supportive in ways that make education more than just going to school. It’s a whole experience. As a professor myself, I know what it’s like for kids to be in an environment where they can connect to teachers and staff. That makes all the difference in the world when it comes to education — which is much more than learning from books.” Larry adds that their support for Ripon is natural because of what they are receiving in return. “We think you have to give back to those places in some way, and so we try to do what we can to help other kids who want to go there,” he says.

Foundations: Bonner seeks to make college affordable for all When President David Joyce came to Ripon in 2003, he came from a college that was a Bonner Scholars School, in partnership with the Corella and Bertram F. Bonner Foundation of Princeton, N.J. The Bonner Foundation works through sustained partnerships with colleges and congregations who they believe have vital roles to play in society. Support from the Foundation nurtures and mobilizes thoughtful, caring and diverse leadership dedicated to community service. “It’s an honor for an organization like us to be affiliated with a school like Ripon,” says Bonner Foundation president Wayne Meisel. “We understand the relationship to be one of privilege and hospital ity. We do not import a mission to an institution like Ripon. It’s the mission of the institution that inspires us to join ranks. I knew about Ripon College because I grew up in Minnesota.” Because of his dedication to
service, Joyce encouraged Ripon to apply to become part of the Bonner program. For five years, Ripon has been a Bonner Leader School — one of only two in the state of Wisconsin and one of 80 Bonner schools across the country. “It’s an organization that promotes service,” says Deano Pape, Bonner director at Ripon. “We offer a Bonner scholarship of up to $2,000 a year, and we also — through Bonner — provide access to AmeriCorps education awards. Education awards mean a student who puts in 300 hours of service can receive a $1,000 education award.” Meisel says the Bonner Foundation seeks to help make college affordable for all students and connect that with opportunities to serve. “Having something like a Bonner Leadership Program creates opportunities for individual students to grow and develop; transition in their

Now, he is a proud supporter of Friends of Ripon Athletics. After graduating from high school at age 16, Weiske came to Ripon College in 1946 because “the admission people enticed me, plus I had a girlfriend who lived in Ripon,” he says.

Friends of the Arts Friends of the Arts was launched in 2007. This organization comprises individuals, couples and families — Ripon community members as well as alumni — who support the performing and visual arts programs at the College. The group formed with a challenge from four longtime and constant Friends who have been committed to the arts at Ripon for many years: Professor Emeritus George Miller, Mary Brandt and John and Celia Roesch. Goals of the group are to provide quality training in the arts for students, including opportunities off campus to attend productions, concerts and art exhibits; to improve facilities and equipment in Rodman Center; and to promote the achievements of students and faculty in the arts throughout the greater Ripon community. Current friends encourage all who thrive on cultural enrichment to join them as Friends of the Arts. For more information, contact Lyn Corder, major gifts officer (email@example.com).

Arts & All That Jazz
The Arts & All That Jazz scholarship benefit dinner and auction was first held in 2006 to under write the direct costs of Al Jarreau’s benefit concert held that year. It has since become an annual College/community gala to celebrate the arts. Net proceeds from the event are added to the Al Jarreau 1962 Scholarship in the Arts Endowment. As of June 30, 2009, the endowed scholarship totaled more than $58,460. The success of this fund-raising effort rests with the artists and other individuals who contributed art, services, dinners or special events, as well as a dedicated volunteer committee composed of both community members and College staff. We thank the following who made the August 2008 Arts and All That Jazz event a success.
