Dear Alumnus/a,

Greetings from the Alumni Relations Office!

My guess is that upon receipt of this issue of Rhodes magazine, you turned first to Class Notes to get updates on your classmates and the other alumni you know. Then, flipping through the features, you came to appreciate that this issue centers on our faculty.

Rhodes College is richly blessed to have a talented and caring community of scholars. This is nothing new. The faculty who went before also cared deeply about their students, and many still have contact with their former students.

During this academic year we have a rare and wonderful opportunity to reconnect with each other. Dan Cullen, associate professor of Political Science, is visiting each of our Rhodes Chapters, offering an afternoon seminar on “Equality and Justice.” Participation in the seminars is by registration on a first-come, first-served basis with a limit on the number attending. However, all members of the alumni and parent community are welcome at an evening reception following the seminar. Advance information will be sent to alumni in each chapter location with details of the seminar and reception. Make plans to attend.

Our faculty members have always cared deeply that we realize the Rhodes Vision by graduating students “with a lifelong passion for learning, a compassion for others and the ability to translate academic study and personal concerns into effective leadership and action in their communities and the world.” If you wish to contact a favorite faculty member, please e-mail me at

Best regards,

Bud Richey
Associate Vice President and
Director of Alumni Relations
