Introduction from Dr. Brosnan


Posted on November 1, 2013 by Dr. Joseph S. Brosnan, Delaware Valley College President.

When engaged minds come together, great things happen. That’s what people are saying about the Delaware Valley College of today.

DelVal is a remarkable institution of higher education made special by our community of students, faculty, staff, alumni, donors and neighbors. The excellence, character and distinctive qualities of DelVal are evident on campus, but aren’t fully understood by those off campus who lack firsthand knowledge of who we are and what we stand for.

The transformation of DelVal goes well beyond meeting the rigors of achieving university status. Together, we are advancing our mission in alignment with the challenges and opportunities of the 21st century. We are effectively communicating our purpose and the value of a DelVal education. By telling our stories, we will allow broader audiences to come to understand and trust our commitment to excellence. And, more importantly, sharing our stories will show how what we teach here translates to positive, meaningful and lasting change in the world.

At DelVal, a promise to our students guides what we do every day. These are the words we live by:

Delaware Valley College promises to give our students the knowledge and experience to tackle the most important issues of our time.

Each and every day, we deliver on that promise. This blog will serve as an outlet for students, faculty, staff and alumni to share what they are learning, what they have accomplished and how that knowledge and experience is making a difference.
