Why Madison? It's the question we've been asking all semester as JMU President Jon Alger travels across the country to meet with university stakeholders. But as the Presidential Listening Tour passes the halfway point, it's worth noting that our question of "why" will eventually become a declaration of "how."
Your feedback, your ideas, and your love for JMU will play a critical role in how this university advances into a new era. So as we share our thoughts of why Madison matters to us, let us also be aware of why it is critical for us to propel JMU forward.
This past year, JMU received more than 26,000 admission applications. Enrollment is on the rise, and the percentage of JMU's budget covered by the state has dramatically decreased over the past decade.President Alger believes alumni are "the lifeblood" of the university. We have an opportunity to prove him correct. Our donations will help more students afford college. Our advocacy will build awareness for the notable work our graduates do every day. Our involvement will show the world we're ready to make JMU the model for the new American university.
So while I encourage you to read and enjoy our new eNewsletter, to attend our events and socialize with classmates, know these are not the only ways we ask you to remain connected to JMU. Your alma mater needs you. Be a donor. Be a volunteer. Be an advocate. "Why" will soon become "how," and you can help us get there.
