  • President Woodward's Inaugural Address — The Inauguration of President Woodward — Carthage College
    be postponed to this Health time labor on what in the single life which nature has given us can these be better bestowed than on this immortal boon to our country The exertions and the mortifications are temporary the benefit eternal 9 Light and liberty Jefferson uses these words often I imagine that we all understand his meaning when he uses the word light though there is no explicit definition given He tells us that the diffusion of Light and Education leads to advancing the happiness of man And he ascribes eternal benefits to the establishment of universities Clearly it is a noble cause that we are engaged in here I am sure that for many others at Carthage as for myself the promise of each day lies in the beauty surrounding shared learning and the transformation of our students And in the joy seized at the most precious moments of recognizing what the light is of witnessing what the light can do of being a catalyst for the light of even being near enough to feel the purity and power of young people suddenly elevated to the best versions of themselves through the newfound potential of their minds Jefferson s light is real and it shines here every day Without quite knowing how or when I have gained a sense of this place over the past nine months I chose a theme for the year I am because we are before I arrived This African mantra Ubuntu in the original tongue places all of us inside a collective family bound together by the contributions of the many individuals compelled to realize their own personal potential in order to strengthen the whole This past fall I wrote an email to the campus describing an early morning sunrise on the lake and I innocently titled my mid year state of the college address Carthage Rising Since then I have received almost 100 sunrise pictures and a few poems as well from members of the faculty staff and student body I was able to spend some time with the very statuesque Jefferson on a recent trip to Washington D C and Mary Oliver whom we keep hearing from has been in my back pocket for many years now All of these somewhat isolated strands have been coalescing into something very powerful to me The idea of the light keeps coming up and has upon reflection been present all along I have seen it in many settings and received it through many different messengers Last winter when this opportunity at Carthage was brought to my attention and after a great deal of study I decided to look into it I was convinced to consider Carthage for a number of compelling reasons One I value the shape and structure of the school and the liberal arts curriculum Two the College has been managed beautifully and while modest in endowment is in an excellent financial position Three the student faculty ratio is small and the residential nature of the undergraduate experience seems to me to be the most powerful learning environment in and out of the classroom for college students Four around 75 percent of our incredible faculty are full time with about 25 percent adjunct or part time This is quite powerfully almost the exact opposite of the national average Five this is a beautiful and well maintained campus in a very select location situated between two major cities and a vast array of industry business fine arts and the broadest possible range of diverse communities Six the College has a proven track record of achievement by the student body Fulbright awards employment success graduate school admission first to fourth year learning gains within the highest 20 percent in the United States short term international travel for students among the top ten of all institutions in the country wonderfully talented students winning national awards and in partnership with their professors earning prestigious grants and engaging in research alongside such revered universities as MIT Stanford Yale and Duke Seven our students are fine athletes talented artists emerging scholars and extremely service oriented civic minded individuals Eight Carthage faculty come from the highest ranks of graduate programs and from prestigious careers within the professional community They are inspiring teachers and fine scholars with demonstrated service to the College and their professions and a primary interest in the welfare and success of their students Nine the entire staff at Carthage are fantastically dedicated individuals who take great pride in their work After visiting the campus another major factor in the job consideration became quickly evident to me Now I suppose this is my tenth reason This is what I found I have never been on a campus where the people are so nice I am sorry for the plain English and the rather plain expression but that is the best word for it People here are unbelievably nice And I will add that the leadership team that I met and now have the privilege of working with every day are top professionals and great humans Now nine months later I grow more inspired to be here every day Liberal arts education is under some attack in the media I think they have it all wrong We prepare students for professional lives inside a liberal arts context that gives them more than just a set of marketable skills Our broad education provides them with qualities insights and abilities that will help shape them equally as successful professionals and as individual citizens Our students are immersed in the great works of mankind an understanding of science and math the experience to understand languages and cultures the imperative ability to communicate well in speech and in writing a panoply of skills in human relations critical thinking and deep analysis and most importantly a knowledge of who they are what their chosen vocations might be what their values are a reflective appreciation of their own beliefs and insights into a shrinking

    all these things but it s a bit abstract Here for the first time in a really important and interesting context they learned to apply these ideas and principles Mr Werlink said the project was a success The result was exactly what we wanted to learn he said I was very happy that we got our objectives accomplished When I talk to other people in NASA I tell them how well this worked out I didn t tell Kevin Crosby how to do this stuff I threw out some ideas and he picked it up and got the students to work independently which really impressed me Some of the teams in SEED see the program differently he continued They have some science basis for what they re doing but it s something simple and getting a zero G experience is the whole point This project was 100 percent not that way It had real work real science real engineering Even if it didn t work I would have been happy that the students tried that hard to make it work Hopefully the team will apply for the program again next year I ll definitely be looking for their proposal Related stories Microgravity Team members invited to watch NASA s final shuttle launch Read the students blog from the trip Heading Into Zero Gravity Wednesday April 6 The Second Flight Day Stephanie Finnvik 12 Cecilia Grove 11 and physics professor Kevin Crosby had their turn in zero gravity on Wednesday April 6 The members of the Carthage Microgravity Team flew aboard G Force One taking off from Ellington Field shortly after 9 a m Watch two videos from the flight and see pictures more Friday April 1 This Year s Experiment The SEED program pairs NASA researchers with teams of college students to conduct research important to NASA In previous years the Carthage Microgravity Team has studied lunar dust filtration systems angles of repose under lunar gravity and propellant slosh in the Orion Crew Exploration Vehicle This year the team is working with NASA research engineer Rudy Werlink to design build and test a zero gravity fuel gauge Led by Werlink and faculty mentor Kevin Crosby they have designed a way to measure fuel volume using non invasive PZT sensors and actuators We re using sound waves to determine how much fluid is in a tank said team lead Kim Schultz 11 of Genoa City Wis more Monday April 4 Anti Motion Sickness Briefing gives tips for feeling good Anything that you do up there that s distracting you from your science is not going to be helpful said lead reduced gravity flight test director Dominic Del Rosso as he kicked off the Anti Motion Sickness Briefing Monday afternoon But the reputation is a lot worse than reality About 10 percent of first time flyers get sick Whatever you do don t panic Don t swim Don t kick or flail That s not effective at all more Monday April 4
