PRESIDENT'S LETTER 2020-2021

ACT, MOVE, BELIEVE

Thank you for your unwavering support!


The strength and success of any school correlates to the love and support of the community that surrounds it. The Ursuline community is like no other. Your countless volunteer hours, advocacy, and generosity in giving make everything we do possible. Your support for the Ursuline mission is unwavering.

The accomplishments of our students, faculty, and staff over this past year have been incredible, especially in the context of this unprecedented time in our school’s history. Ursuline has been able to make significant new investments in technology, professional learning, and campus improvements. All to benefit student success and well-being, today and in the future, and all thanks to you!

As year two of The Campaign for Ursuline kicks off on UA Giving Day, Thursday, September 23, we celebrate tremendous progress toward ambitious goals. Our new East Campus facility, opened this fall, provides exciting collaboration spaces and classrooms for Visual Arts, English, Journalism, Social Studies, and Engineering, with two fabrication labs and a 3D print studio. Students also have new dining options with the addition of East Campus distributed dining and an expanded Fox Dining Hall in a beautifully renovated Haggar Center.

At Ursuline we aspire for students to meet problems and possibilities with creativity, ingenuity, responsibility, and compassion. As they learn, our students acquire broadly applicable skills and competencies that they can apply flexibly to any challenge. The commitment to the full development of every girl runs deep at Ursuline, through programs that embrace the cherished and timeless core values of an Ursuline education.

Ursuline will continue to explore and implement student-centered innovations in curriculum and instruction, where every girl’s program is unique. With your continued partnership, the energy and momentum of this past year will carry us forward through the next phases of construction, as well as provide the resources needed annually for The Ursuline Fund and student Scholarships. View campaign progress.

Ever grateful for your invaluable support, we are fully inspired by the words of St. Angela to “Persevere faithfully and joyfully in the work we have begun.”

Yours in Christ,


Gretchen Z. Kane
President
