To the Cabrini College community, It is a great honor for me to serve Cabrini College as interim president while the Board of Trustees engages in a national search for a new leader.
When the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus founded the College in 1957, they created more than just another school, but instead created a true Cabrinian community of students, alumni, faculty, staff, friends, and partners who have a deep commitment to the mission and to one another. For 20 years, I too have been part of this Cabrini College community and recognize its value and strength. I began my association with Cabrini College as an adjunct faculty member in 1986, and later, served for 13 years on the College’s Board of Trustees, including the past two years as Chair of the Board.
It is from this perspective that I have had the opportunity to witness firsthand the dedication of faculty and staff in providing the Education of the Heart envisioned by Mother Cabrini more than a hundred years ago. My commitment to you is to continue providing an Education of the Heart as we work to make this strong College even stronger.
Together, we can achieve the strategic vision of becoming a college of first choice and a national model for excellence in forming leaders who advance the common good in their communities and the world. Even in this time of transition, we know that a bright future lies ahead for Cabrini College, and all of us will build that future together. Please know that I welcome the insight and knowledge of the College community as we move Cabrini forward into a new and exciting era.
To prospective students and parents, I invite you to become a part of the Cabrini College community. This welcoming environment places great value on working together to provide students with a transformational college experience unlike any other.
When a student is transformed by an Education of the Heart, they are equipped to reach their career goals, pursue graduate study, and make real, substantive change in the world.
At Cabrini, students work alongside accomplished faculty who are not just teachers and scholars, but mentors in the truest sense. Plus, students become part of a Cabrini College community of alumni and friends around the nation and across the world who are ready to help them realize their dreams.
Working together to help students reach their goals while emphasizing a commitment to bettering our shared world is what defines Cabrini College. I am honored to be part of this community and I look forward to working with each of you. Together, we will Do Something Extraordinary.
Sincerely, Deb M. Takes Interim President
