President's Message

As you will read in this issue, our new geosciences, physics, and engineering facility, Sitter Family Hall, is open and operating. The building is remarkable! The opportunities this addition to campus offers our students for learning and research are, in my opinion, unmatched anywhere but the largest research universities.

True to the liberal arts environment at Fort Lewis College, Sitter Family Hall melds science with the arts and humanities. The beautiful FLC NEWS Foucault pendulum shows us the rotation of the Earth while the scanning electron microscope helps us examine the unseen parts of our world. The Constellation Ceiling evokes the heavens and the traditions of the area’s Native American tribes, while the observatory will allow us to explore the stars.

Thank you to all who have supported the creation of Sitter Family Hall and founded a legacy that will endure for years to come.
