Warmest Wishes from Pitzer College

Greetings, Pitzer alumni and families. Wherever you are, I hope you are doing well and staying safe.

During these difficult days, I take comfort in the strength and resilience of our community. I began my Pitzer experience as a student 45 years ago. While I didn’t imagine then that I would become a Pitzer professor and parent, I knew that I had found a rare, wonderful collection of student peers and teachers, drawn together by curiosity, creativity, and a determination to make this world a better place.

Today, I am heartened by the overwhelming acts of kindness from members of our community. Many of you contributed to the Pitzer Student Emergency Fund, and we thank you for that. Our upcoming One Pitzer campaign, launching on Monday, April 13, will highlight the College’s COVID-19 Relief Fund and provide more opportunities for us to support one another during these uncertain times.

At Pitzer, students are asked to wrestle with new ideas, stretch their minds, and apply their ideals to the lives they live. I am confident that we will not only get through this together, but that we will emerge more connected and stronger than ever.

Provida Futuri,

Paul Faulstich ’79, P’15
