Words to describe the diverse, talented, ambitious students who fill our campus with energy, questions, and hope for the future. Luckily, these words also describe you who comprise the enterprise that is Marywood. You - our alumni, friends, students, faculty, parents, staff, and community partners - who come together with unprecedented support to enable Marywood to excel in all areas of her mission.

I am so grateful for each person who has contributed to making Marywood not only the revered institution she is, but also for helping to create a welcoming community that is committed to making a positive impact in the world. Thank you for being a part of all the accomplishments we made this year- who knew so much was possible in only two short years? But, there is still much to do - much to dream about and to achieve. I am honored to lead this great institution and am very excited about what we will accomplish together in the future. With your support, Marywood will continue to exhibit the positive attributes of her founders as she inspires future generations of leaders, servants, and change-makers. I can’t wait to see what we accomplish together next year.

With hope and gratitude,

sister mary persico, IHM
