Agnes Flanagan Chapel
From: Mark Duntley, Dean of the Chapel
To: LC Community (staff and faculty)
In the interest of helping us connect with one another just a little bit more broadly, I have offered to facilitate a new effort to share important life transitions with our campus community. We are calling this project “Passages” and it will be posted in the “News” column of the Chapel’s home page as well in the “From the Community” column of The Source.
Passages will be a repository for news about campus community members and our families. Things like engagements, graduations, births, promotions, deaths, and other significant milestones or transitions will be reported in Passages so that we can be just a little bit better connected with one another here at Lewis & Clark.
Our philosophy behind this endeavor will be to “share with permission,” so we only plan on sharing information that one of you has specifically asked to be shared in this forum.
You can send messages and updates to: firstname.lastname@example.org. I will be the one who reviews these emails and will be in charge of bringing them to the attention of our community in Passages. Whether you are reporting information about yourself or a colleague here, I will always personally verify the information with the individual involved and secure permission to pass along that information in Passages.
In the coming days I hope to publish our first posting of Passages. Thank you.
