Office of the President
Everything we do at Beloit College begins with students. Our mission statement, in this way, sets the tone. Everyone from our coaches to our faculty members, from the Board of Trustees to our admissions staff, is focused on supporting and enriching the student experience at Beloit College.
This singular focus, however, doesn’t translate to a cushy environment. That’s not Beloit. Ours is a community where challenges are confronted and risk taking rewarded; where close observation trumps 30,000-foot speculation. Where hands get dirty and boots too. Where information is passed along and processed, sifted and tested—and then, always, applied.
This is more unique than you might think.
We are also a place and a people warm in a way that has nothing to do with the weather (especially in February), bold and fearless in all the right measures, and worldly—both in our point of view and the makeup of our student body.
It is privilege to serve such a place, and such a group of people. If you don’t know Beloit or what makes us different, I hope you’ll come and see us. And if I can tell you more about this place my wife Melody and I call home, I hope you’ll give me (and my colleagues) a chance to do so.
It is, after all, a great day to be a Beloiter.
Scott Bierman, president
