Beautiful Southern Illinois University!

I have been rather obsessed with the educational institution that I love.  SIU is something special to me…and it is always new…no matter how many times I walk the beautiful Campus.

Today, President Randy Dunn shared the G. K. Chesterton quote, that has been my talisman, with the Southern Illinois System,  in his Systems Connection Newsletter.

I like President Dunn and Chancellor Colwell.  Both of these leaders speak to me very naturally and sincerely.  I felt empathy for President Dunn at the last Board of Trustees meeting when several members of the Edwardsville Campus spoke very hurtful and disingenuous things regarding the Carbondale Campus.  I believe that President Dunn is doing his best to hold our Carbondale Campus together during the most financially critical time of our history.

We must pull together with these leaders to weather these stormy seas, and come out on the other side with a renewal of our former greatness.

As we  pledged our loyalty and fealty to our leaders…who want our success…we ask that we be kept on board the ship…even in a diminished manner…so that we may be part of the solution…that will surely need our expert…career dedication and support.

One more time…for good measure…” We are all in the same boat in a stormy sea, and we owe each other a terrible loyalty.”  G. K. Chesterton
