New Faculty Orientation: A Model of Intentional Support
I recently took the opportunity to sit with our newest faculty members to hear about how they have experienced our efforts to support their entry to St. Mark's. I heard generally positive feedback, with a particular emphasis on a sense of welcome and a readiness on the part of members of the adult community to offer support and advice and to answer questions.

Ben Bradlee '39: A Historically Significant Life of Consequence
I have experienced a distinct sense of déjà vu over the last couple of months as I have watched, listened to, and read about events relating to the impeachment of Donald Trump.

I am often asked what the phrase "Lives of Consequence" means. The question is a logical one because you see the phrase prominently displayed since we have chosen to make it the tagline for our capital campaign. You can't miss seeing it when you drive up to the Main Building since it appears on banners attached to lampposts, and you will also see it in many of our social media messages and in our publications.
