Letter from the President Dear Friend,


Springfield College has a long history of attracting exceptionally caring students who go on to become exceptionally caring alumni. In fact, our alumni far exceed any standard for excellence when it comes to service to others, and that is especially true with how they continue to engage with the College, our students, and each other long after graduation. It is gratifying for me to watch as so many of you refer potential students, help students and alumni with networking and professional development, assist the College with your financial contributions, and continue to positively represent Springfield College. In the article entitled


“Humanics. In Action.,” you’ll learn about other members of the Springfield College community who are making a difference, including Emily Brown ’14


and other Springfield College students who worked with Habitat for Humanity to build a new home for Juan Guerrero and his two daughters. Juan lost his wife in the 2011 tornado, which also destroyed his home. His family was pleased to be able to move in to their new home, made possible by the work of our students, just before Christmas. This issue also features others whose commitment to


excellence and service is reflected in their work, including our professors Jen Stratton, Naomi Graves, and Chuck Redington. Stratton, an assistant professor of education, took her interest in literacy to South Africa where she led workshops focused on how to support early literacy development among young children; and Naomi Graves G’85 and Chuck Redington, the 2011-2012 and 2012-2013 Distinguished Springfield Professors of Humanics respectively, spent considerable time investigating Humanics from their own unique perspectives. We recently learned Roscoe Brown ’43, Ph.D., the


Tuskegee Airman who was featured on the cover of our previous issue has been awarded the National Football Foundation’s highest honor, the Gold Medal Award, for exhibiting superior qualities of scholarship, citizenship, and leadership. Like Roscoe Brown, many of you have been honored for your outstanding work, and we are proud of your accomplishments and achievements. Likewise, we are proud of the successes, both large and small, of each and every one of you as you live out the Humanics philosophy day to day— more often than not, without any recognition other than knowing the influence you have on the lives you touch. As we begin the new year, we look forward to sharing


more stories and more successes of our alumni. Please know that many of our students tell me that it was an alumnus who recommended that they apply to Springfield College, or an alumnus who provided an internship experience or employment, or who served as a role model. They thank you and we thank you!


All the best for a healthy, happy, and prosperous New Year,


Richard B. Flynn, Ed.D. President
