By the time this reaches your desk, I will have completed four months at TBC as your new Executive Director. You have made me feel incredibly welcome, and I am excited by what is in store for us.
In December, the TBC Board of Directors approved their Strategic Direction, which, in 2018, will drive our focus toward aligning collaborative programs and shared services to best serve the organization and our member institutions. There will be more on this in upcoming issues of TBC Connects.
We’ll be using TBC Connects to highlight what our Communities of Practice have been up to (did you know we have over twenty active communities?), and innovative ways through which our member institutions have been cutting costs (MIT’s effort to reduce emissions is a shining example). We’ll also bring you up to speed on what the Board has been working on, and use this connection as a vehicle to share information and best practices.
Our vision in connecting with you regularly is to let you know what your Consortium is up to and gather your feedback and ideas. Please send them! My email address is below, and I would love to hear from you.
Happy New Year!

The Fellowship carries on her legacy by connecting, developing, and supporting emerging leaders within the schools of The Boston Consortium. The Fellowship seeks to increase awareness of the Consortium's values and activities at the grassroots level, connect and engage practitioners in meaningful projects, and foster collaboration and camaraderie in the next generation of leaders..
