Fall 2006 A Look Ahead New Chapter Inside: Begins Annual Report 2005–06 2 President’s View I WAS NOT SURE WHAT I WOULD FIND WHEN I ENTERED HILBERT COLLEGE’S CAMPUS DINING HALL on Oct. 13 with the noise of the generator in the background and the windows the only source of light. Yet the tables were filled with resident-students eating their hot lunches, albeit on paper plates, while sharing strategies for living without computers, television and phones. President Emeritus Sister Edmunette Paczesny and her family occupied another table celebrating her birthday by sharing lunch with students and staff rather than the gala dedication for Paczesny Hall and the William E. Swan Auditorium that was cancelled by the October surprise snowstorm. Staff shared stories of how they walked to campus in the midst of the storm and prepared meals for students in a kitchen illuminated by flashlights. Facilities staff cleared downed trees and maintained generators to provide heat for resident-students and the Campus Center. Hilbert Campus Safety maintained contact with local officials to coordinate emergency response efforts. What a powerful example of our mission and Franciscan values. Despite adversity, student well-being was our primary concern. This year Hilbert celebrates 50 years of building a learning community that has This year Hilbert enabled graduates to make a positive impact on their professions and communities. As we prepare for the anniversary celebration and presidential inauguration on April 20, 2007, the Hilbert community will complete a strategic plan to guide celebrates 50 decisions through 2012. A recent story in The Buffalo News discussed the challenges confronting Western years of building a New York’s seven Catholic colleges and universities, including the competition for enrollment, affordability and the need to remain distinctive. The most important learning community thing we need to accomplish in this academic year is to establish Hilbert’s top priorities and identify how we will measure and track our performance. We will face a difficult challenge in this strategic planning process – the challenge of choice. that has enabled Often colleges that are struggling today are those that have tried to be all things to all people. That’s not Hilbert’s approach. We will develop a plan that will graduates to make build on the legacy of Sister Edmunette to keep Hilbert an efficient, effective and thriving college. a positive impact I’m energized by the conversations we are having about the importance of our Catholic and Franciscan identity, about the best way to enhance the learning environment, about what new academic programs would be the best additions to our on their professions portfolio of offerings, about the role athletics plays in the lives of our students, and about the ways faculty and staff can work together to strengthen Hilbert. and communities. I’m grateful for the warm hospitality that has been extended to me in these first few months of my presidency and look forward to the crucial conversations we will be having regarding the future of Hilbert. I’m confident that just like the staff who put students first during the October snowstorm, we will remain student-centered throughout this planning process. We need each of you to help us achieve our goals and welcome your input during this strategic planning process. Cynthia A. Zane, Ed.D.

Simpson was the grunge bands, TV show trial and the Oklahoma City bombing. Technology in the ‘90s also took another huge leap forward, prompting many changes at Hilbert College. In 1990, McGrath Library’s online catalog was in its infancy with only two computers available to access the catalog, making the traditional card catalog, shown here, still a needed resource. As the decade progressed, additional computers with Internet-access were made available for student use and CD-ROMs were phased out for Internet databases, among many other improvements. To share some of your favorite memories as a student during the ‘90s, contact the Ofﬁce of Alumni Relations at 716-926-8888, or e-mail email@example.com. 5200 South Park Avenue Hamburg, NY 14075 Return Service Requested Parents: If newsletter is addressed to a grad- uated son or daughter who no longer main- tains a permanent address at your home, please clip the address label and return it with correct address to the address shown above.
