Marywood University ANNUAL REPORT of the President
Marywood University has had a busy, productive year!
Most notably, we committed significant resources to create
a new School of Architecture—the first to open in
northeast Pennsylvania. In keeping with the
University’s tradition of educating students to live
responsibly in an interdependent world, the Marywood
University School of Architecture has been created to
produce a new generation of architects—environmental
stewards who will assume major responsibility for the built
environment of the region, the nation, and the world.
Marywood University Architecture students pursue
coursework that prepares them for the LEED Professional
Accreditation exam. LEED—Leadership in Energy and
Environmental Design—is a rating system developed by
the Green Building Council to encourage the global
adoption of sustainable green building and development
practices by architects. Marywood University is a proud
member of the Green Building Council.
In keeping with this spirit of sustainable progress, we
decided to once again produce a “green” President’s
Report—a solely online piece—to reduce our use of
paper products and take another positive step in our
ongoing efforts to cultivate and practice environmental
stewardship. Marywood University continues to evaluate
its current practices and engage in future initiatives with
environmental considerations in mind, for the benefit of
our students, our campus, our community, and our world.
I am deeply grateful for all you have done to advance the
goals, initiatives, and mission of Marywood University.
Our progress is a source of great optimism and abundant
hope. May we continue, together, to enthusiastically meet
the challenges of our time, recognizing the significant
impact that our efforts make on the education of our
students, now and in the years to come.
