Introducing the New Bryant Magazine
Introducing the new Bryant Magazine
Jun 17, 2024, by President Ross Gittell, Ph.D.

Ross Gittell Ph.D.Greetings, Bulldogs! Welcome to the relaunch of Bryant magazine. This edition celebrates the heart of our community and spotlights the leaders, changemakers, and innovators who have shaped Bryant University.

One of the most rewarding aspects of being president is interacting with our alumni community. Their stories of transformation at Bryant resonate deeply, and the common thread through our conversations is an enthusiasm for Bryant's future and a desire to deepen their connection to our university. Bryant magazine provides that connection through storytelling and offers a platform for information and engagement as Bryant undergoes its most significant transformation in more than 50 years. 

Within these pages are narratives celebrating the achievements of students, faculty, and alums, as well as stories charting our bold path forward. So many hands touched this publication, but I especially want to thank the editor, Casey Nilsson, and the Bryant University editorial team for bringing the magazine to life. Our Vision 2030 Strategic Plan keeps the institution agile, innovative, and student-focused with a top 1 percent return on investment for education while positioning Bryant to be a university of choice for delivering transformative educational experiences — all while preparing students to achieve success on a global scale. I urge you to explore the enhanced opportunities offered by Vision 2030 throughout the magazine. 

Page 41 features a glimpse inside the Business Entrepreneurship Leadership Center. Delve into the details of Bryant's first doctoral program, a Doctor of Clinical Psychology (Psy.D.), on page 7. And on page 18, get to know Bryant’s new board chair, D. Ellen Wilson ’79. I hope these stories inspire you to broaden your participation in Bryant's journey. Whether attending a campus event, mentoring students, or reconnecting at an alumni gathering, we encourage your involvement. Through continued engagement, together, we will realize the goals of Vision 2030 while developing the next generation of purpose-driven leaders.
