Just wanted to reflect on a lovely meeting I had with my presidential fellow, a student who is paid to work on extra projects with a faculty member. Carolina and I are working on something we are calling these days emPOWer: this is a working title for an emerging project to document, support, foment, and study social innovation and entrepreneurship in, around, and through Bucknell.
I’ll blog more on that later. But this morning, we sat under the cherry blossoms on a glorious Spring day and had the easy exchange of people with roles, with goals, and with common passions. My mind was alive with ideas and actions to see those come to fruition. The verve, blessed by a suspended snowfall of pink petals, underscored this is one of the best jobs ever.
