  • President Herzberger Addresses Class of 2019 | Whittier College
    president we just don t know yet who it is Whittier s success in preparing graduates for important roles stems from our commitment to a mission established way back in 1887 Our founders were Quakers who named both our town and our College after fellow Quaker and poet John Greenleaf Whittier Coming from a poor family Mr Whittier was a farmer by day and a relentless reader by night He became a well known newspaperman founded a political party and devoted his life to the abolishment of slavery His abolitionist poetry ironically was used by President Lincoln to spur men to fight in the Civil War Like the students we attract to this College he was multidimensional principled and smart and he helped shape the American conscience With John Greenleaf Whittier as a model our founders adopted a mission to educate students to respect people of all religious backgrounds and all races and ethnicities and coming from all places of origin They aimed to educate graduates to serve their own communities and simultaneously to look beyond regional and national borders to understand and appreciate people and cultures of the world Our College s founders would be proud to look over our campus today and see students of all backgrounds and from all over America and as represented by the flags behind me from so many countries They would be satisfied knowing that you will learn through service to others and that today as intended from our beginning you will learn from faculty who respect both theory and its application who will teach you to see the world s challenges from multiple perspectives and above all who will teach you to raise questions and to be humble about what you already know What I want to emphasize tonight is Whittier s continuing commitment to Quaker traditions that teach you about your responsibilities as a human being and as a potential leader In a few minutes and then often during your time at Whittier you will be asked to sit in silence To our founders silence encouraged listening to the small voice within each of us that calls on us to choose the right path Equally significant silence encourages us to listen to voices different from our own to learn from them and to use this knowledge to seek common ground In a world where there is more talking than true listening just think about what might be achieved if we all remained silent and purposefully listened just a little more Read any newspaper today and you cannot help but find evidence of the need for more listening From conflicts between police and citizens to discord among nations we see the ills that result from not practicing the art of listening and learning And we can see this just as much in everyday interactions and decision making The economist Daniel Kahneman made a career out of studying humans tendency to engage in fast thinking when slow thinking would have been best Fast

  • President's Welcome to the Class of 2018: The Gift of Whittier | Whittier College
    leadership stems from our commitment to a mission established way back in 1887 Our founders were Quakers who migrated west and named both our town and our College after the poet John Greenleaf Whittier And it is important to understand why Coming from a poor family young Mr Whittier was a farmer by day and a relentless reader by night He became a well known newspaperman a renowned abolitionist and a devoted Quaker whose poetry ironically was used by President Lincoln to spur men to fight in the Civil War Like the students we attract to this College he was multidimensional principled and smart and he helped shape the American conscience With John Greenleaf Whittier as a model our founders adopted a mission to educate students to respect people of all religious backgrounds all ethnicities and all places of origin They aimed to educate graduates to serve their communities and simultaneously look beyond regional and national borders to understand the world Our mission called for an education that would encourage students to think broadly act with integrity listen to disparate voices and from these voices seek common ground Our College s founders would be mighty proud to look over our campus today and see students of all backgrounds from all over America and as represented by the flags behind me from so many countries of the world They would be satisfied knowing that you will learn through service to others and that today as intended from our beginning you will learn from faculty who revere breadth of knowledge as much as depth who respect both theory and application and who will teach you to see the world s challenges from multiple points of view Most important Whittier s faculty will prod you to question all that you think you know Our founders would be equally proud that we still engage in Quaker traditions that teach you about your responsibilities as a human being In a few minutes and then often during your time at Whittier you will be asked to sit in silence To our founders silence encouraged listening to the small voice within that calls on us to do what is right Equally significant silence encourages us to listen to voices different from our own and to learn from them In a world where there is more talking than true listening this is an increasingly important tradition Think about the conflicts underway around the globe in Ferguson Missouri Syria Somalia and Ukraine Think about the misunderstandings between Russia and the United States Sunnis and Shiites Republicans and Democrats and even between the talking heads at Fox and MSNBC What might be achieved if we all remained silent and purposefully listened just a little more I ve been going around recommending Daniel Kahneman s book Thinking Fast and Slow which illustrates the foibles of human cognition how we gather information how we judge others how we make decisions about them Kahneman s conclusion not terribly well He describes two types
