Our responsibility remains to select the best of diverse students, so that they may come here and learn from each other. To ensure that they balance learning and effort of mind, spirit, talent and body. To fire in them a lifelong desire for learning and moral reasoning and action. To inspire them to do what the college was founded for, to enlighten, care for and advance society as a whole, within and beyond our borders.
"It remains our students' responsibility to learn, engage and change the world. It remains the faculty's to inform teaching with scholarship that is deep but also broad?in the way it can be only at a great liberal arts college. And it remains our duty, together, to serve the community, and thereby learn further; to work with those less privileged. By serving our core mission of education, we serve beyond it."
