362 days

It has been 362 days since I started my current position as Senior Vice President and Provost at Columbia College Chicago. And what a year it has been! 

Columbia College is a wonderful place — it is a liberal arts college with about 7000 students, and a focus on the creative arts. Our three schools: Liberal Arts & Sciences, Fine & Performing Arts, and Media Arts, are assembly points for some of the most talented faculty, staff and students you can find anywhere, and I have truly enjoyed my time here so far.

Even with COVID-19. Even with unrest and economic hardship. This is the place to be.

I am inspired to reconnect with my own artwork. I share some uniquely Chicago photos from the past two days, but plan to branch out this summer to capture more of city life, as well as the wildlife I so love.

It’s good to be back.
