As you receive this newsletter we will be in the midst of inaugurating the 15th president of William Jewell College, Dr. Elizabeth MacLeod Walls. She joined our campus in the fall of 2016 and has already been moving and shaping our campus to a greater future. We have launched a brand campaign which has started to share our philosophy of being critical thinkers in community pursuing meaningful lives. For those of you who know Jewell we have always been a place that thinks deeply about complex issues and engages the difficulty of finding effective answers to the problems in our respective disciplines. The idea of being and fostering critical thinkers is nothing new on the Hill. But now it is being shared with our broader community in a way that so effectively captures the heart of Jewell. Join with us by sharing this message, follow us on Instagram or Facebook and tell a high school student about Jewell. This campus takes critical thinking, community and seeking meaning seriously and we want others to join us in this endeavor. Please do!
Dr. Kelli Schutte
Chair of the Department of Business and Leadership
