Opening of the Academic Year

Last Friday, the academic year of 2015 – 2016 was opened in a faculty and staff gathering on campus.

Dr. Irene Hazou, the Vice President for Academic Affairs, opened the meeting and welcomed everyone back on campus for the new academic year. All vice presidents and deans also specifically welcomed their new staff and faculty members.

Br. Peter Iorlano led the audience in a meditation on values, challenging Bethlehem University’s staff and faculty members to think about their own values as well as the University’s.

Br. Peter Bray, the Vice Chancellor, addressed the audience and presented Bethlehem University’s development plans. Br. Peter also challenged the staff and faculty members to always strive to make the University better and to serve each other and the students entrusted to us as ‘older brothers and sisters’.

Happy new academic year to all staff, faculty members and students!
