Dottie L. King, Ph.D., 16th president of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College

During this season of thanks and giving, I am reminded of how strong our commitment is to the foundation laid by Saint Mother Theodore Guerin. We feel her presence as we look to forging a strong future for The Woods - one that is on the move to actively aspire to build long-term success and growth through intentionally investing in our educational offerings, enhancing the quality of the campus environment and elevating the identity of SMWC.

The Aspire Higher Strategic Plan process has allowed us to make decisions to grow this institution. We have been mindful of our history, our mission and our students, while keeping our thoughts and efforts focused on the vision of a bright future. Together, we are forging a path that is unique to us.

I feel very strongly that Providence has joined our efforts to build a foundation for the next 175 years. Thank you for joining me as a partner in action and in prayer as we continue to aspire to strengthen and grow Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College.

With warm regards,

Dottie L. King
