The Council is charged with both action and innovation in creating an ever-more inclusive community at the University of Redlands. I hope we adopt the following mindset: that we are in a process of becoming . . . a process of becoming and evolving . . . remaining committed to a rich history of excellence by redoubling and sustaining our efforts in important areas and exploring new ways of being in the modern world. This is not a moment, nor a crisis. Rather, it is an opportunity to be ever better.
