I spent an amazing evening at the annual awards ceremony of Global Green, a Los Angeles based organization with national and international impact on environmental issues, from energy use to green construction to education.
I stayed over for a day in D.C. after our Pomona College networking reception to attend the Washington Ideas Forum, an incredibly intense day of interviews with national leaders in government, business, education and culture.
Each June, I try to find time to take part in the Aspen Symposium on the Future of Higher Education because the participants and the range of topics covered go well beyond those typical of higher education meetings.
"I hope that our contributions help Pomona continue its tradition of excellence, and make it possible for students to attend and graduate. Even if our individual gifts are not major gifts, collectively we can make a difference."
