“I am a beneficiary of Auburn’s commitments and its investments in women and in multifaith leadership. It is a blessing to continue this lineage of building a world where no one is excluded and where we are writing a better letter to the future than the one we received. The opportunity to deepen Auburn’s capacities to keep these waters troubled in this next chapter of its unfolding story is the sacred call I am answering.”
