Dear Members of the Extended Fordham Community,
Today I begin my first day as your new president, with all of the eagerness and anxiety of the first day of school. (My 10-year-old daughter Lucy calls this feeling “nex-cited”—nervous and excited at the same time.)
I cannot wait to meet you all, and only wish I could do it simultaneously. I want to know what you love most about Fordham, about your work and studies and research. And I want to hear the ways you constantly work to make Fordham better, and the ideas you have for the future.
I have such big shoes to fill and I will be working very hard to earn your trust. We are going to do great things together.
Editor’s Note: President Tetlow was welcomed at an outdoor coffee reception on July 5 at Rose Hill. She’ll meet the Lincoln Center community at a similar event on July 14. Below are photos from the Rose Hill event, taken by Tom Stoelker.
