4 President John F. Van Domelen at AZ Veteran Certification Ceremony, 2014 President s Corner Wikipedia defines volunteering as an altruistic activity intended to promote goodness or improve human quality of life. In return, this activity can produce a feeling of self-worth and respect. There is no financial gain involved for the individual. It has been my good fortune to travel extensively in this world. I have managed to visit or live in more than 40 countries, and I have been struck by the fact that volunteerism is far less prevalent as a cultural norm outside the United States. I am sure that this is because the citizenry in those countries look to their governments to provide essential services. In the United States charitable groups staffed with volunteers provide many of these services. The founding of our nation was greatly enhanced through the use of a volunteer army and navy against a British military conscripted into service or mercenaries paid to fight. It is true that our volunteers were eventually paid, but pay was secondary to the belief that they were serving a cause important to their family, their friends, and, ultimately, their greater community and future nation. In the last century this sense of serving a greater cause led thousands to volunteer for the Peace Corps. Again, there is compensation for members of the Corps, but at a very modest level. We are fortunate that we are a nation of volunteers and givers. It has enriched the lives of many of our citizens who receive services and goods they may otherwise not have been able to aspire to (through no fault of their own). I truly believe the benefits of giving work in both directions; that those who have volunteered or given of their wealth have had their lives enriched by being involved citizens and making a difference in the world around them. I volunteered for military service long before there was a draft in force. After leaving active service I volunteered in the Vermont Air Guard. Yes, I was compensated for both activities, but at a far lower Prescott College Volunteer Board Members Walt Anderson Faculty Trustee Dan Boyce Financial Planner, Center for Financial Planning, Inc.

5 rate of remuneration than I would have earned as an engineer. For me the true pay was the sense of service to my country, despite its many warts. As an educator I volunteered for just about any service group available. I served as an accreditation team member, then chair, and then finally as a member of the board of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges. I served on numerous committees and boards for the State of Vermont and then the City of Boston too many to list. But I am not atypical. Almost everyone I ve known has volunteered for something that would help their community, their state, their country. I have used the multitude of good examples surrounding me and tried to emulate them. I have tried to be charitable with what wealth I have and with the time I have. I volunteered for the Prescott College Board of Trustees because a good friend, Dan Garvey, said he needed me, and when the President left during the middle of last academic year, I agreed to serve as president until a replacement could be found because I knew the institution needed me. The College was clearly in need in many aspects, so I have and continue to serve in this position without pay. It is the largest charitable contribution I have ever made to an organization and the one that has brought me the greatest satisfaction of any volunteer effort I have ever undertaken. My wife, despite an ongoing illness, encouraged me to take the time to serve the College, in essence sharing her precious time with me with the College as well. between self-fulfillment and service to others. Each of our students is instilled with a sense of obligation to enhance our world community and environment, and equipped with the skills to make a living making a difference. Not surprisingly, many of our graduates go on to work in the nonprofit world, at NGOs, in conservation, teaching, and in the fields of counseling and psychology. Even beyond altruistic forms of employment, many still find the time to volunteer in their communities and give from what means they have to organizations acting on worthwhile missions every day. I am proud of my service on the Board and as President of Prescott College and hope it helps in some small way to encourage a sense of volunteerism in our graduates, and reinforce it in our alumni. There is no gift as special as your time. Thank you, John F. Van Domelen, Ph.D. President Prescott has graduated and continues to graduate students who care about the quality of life the members of their society enjoy.

6 College News Prescott College Commits to Fossil Fuel Divestment The Prescott College Board of Trustees has approved a landmark Fossil Fuel Divestment Resolution, making a commitment to shift endowment investments from the 200 largest fossil fuel corporations to clean, green energy companies and other socially responsible investments aligned with institutional values. The divestment initiative at Prescott College was first developed by recent graduate Kara Kukovich 13, who prepared a report on the ethical, financial, and environmental reasons for fossil fuel divestment. The proposed action gained widespread support from students, faculty, staff, and executives at the College, and was approved by all major internal governance committees within a few short months. We are excited about the Divestment Resolution it reaffirms our commitment to environmental responsibility and social justice, said President John Van Domelen. These have been our core values from inception nearly a half century ago, long before the emergence of the sustainability movement. Arizona Gives Day Prescott College participated in the second-annual Arizona Gives Day a statewide, 24-hour, online giving campaign with our very own Cowboy Dollar Drive on April 9. Drawing on the history of the College and with a generous $5,000 matching gift from President John Van Domelen, the Prescott College community raised $13,750 in 24 hours! Big thanks to everyone who participated in one form or another. Raven Review Transformed Under the auspices of Social Justice and Human Rights faculty member Todd Mireles, the student staff of Prescott College s student run newspaper, The Raven Review, launched an online-only version of the publication with a dynamic new photo-heavy design and user interface (www.ravenreviewnewspaper.com). According to Mireles, who earned his undergrad degree in journalism, it s not just the look and format that are different. He sees the new Raven Review as a year-round publication accepting article ideas, photos, and complete story submissions from the entire Prescott College community. Got an idea? Submit directly online at (See story on page 29.) River Studies Leadership Certificate The River Management Society has partnered with five colleges and universities, including Prescott College, to offer the River Studies Leadership Certificate. The certificate is designed for undergraduate students and requires completion of approved river-focused coursework and a river-related professional project. Faculty will collaborate with each student to design and complete a personalized academic program that should address real world challenges facing rivers in the U.S. Each student will receive a one-year membership in the River Management Society that includes a subscription to the RMS Journal and the opportunity to attend national and regional chapter events, including the national symposium or workshop (held in alternating years). In addition to coursework and professional experience, students must present about an aspect of their studies at a professional conference or contribute an article to the RMS Journal to complete the program. Prescott College faculty member Joel Barnes and Faculty Director of the Water Center at Colorado Mesa University Gigi Richard were instrumental in developing this certificate. Earth Day Turned Earth Month Prescott College turned this year s Earth Day into an Earth Month with collaboration among groups and individuals on and off campus. Events included: Earth Day at the Courthouse Plaza, a Rachel Carson Chautauqua, a presentation on climate change by Rev. Michael Dowd, a movie screening of More than Honey, a campus conversation on Spiritualism and Nature, a presentation called The Path of Natural History by Tom Fleischner, and the One Man s Treasure Up-cycled Art Auction. As part of One Man s Treasure, the College participated in a month-long display at the downtown Prescott Public Library during the month of February. The largest event each year by far is always Earth Day at the Courthouse Plaza, which Prescott College co-sponsors along with the Prescott Open Space Alliance. Our five booths on the Courthouse Plaza represented several groups on campus including: Admissions, Advancement, Natural History Institute, Sustainability Council, Butte Creek Restoration, and ECOSA Institute. 4 Transitions Fall 2014

7 Media Resource Center Expanding Scope The Prescott College Media Resource Center is radically expanding its scope. For years the Center filmed colloquium keynote speeches and graduation ceremonies, and in the beginning this footage was relegated to DVDs held in the Library s collection. In the rapidly expanding age of online video streaming, the Media Center is coming of age. Graduations and Baccalaureate will still be filmed, even streamed live or viewed and downloaded directly from the Prescott College website. But, the fun doesn t stop there. Center staff is interviewing faculty and students about their passions and their experiences at Prescott College. Video cameras are in the hands of students in field courses. Wilderness orientation will be coming to your screen soon! These very short programs will be shared on the College website, the official Prescott College Facebook page, and soon on a dedicated Media Center Blog. All of this activity focuses on connecting Prescott College with likeminded people who might want to attend themselves, send their children here, or invest in the College. Check out these shorts, share them with friends, and let the Media Center crew know what you think at A growing collection of videos is already available for direct viewing and sharing here: Southwest Writers Series Hosts Poet Laureate at Prescott College Alberto Rios, Arizona s first Poet Laureate, came to the Art Gallery at Sam Hill Warehouse on April 30 as part of the Southwest Writers Series. Rios has published 10 books and chapbooks of poetry, three collections of short stories, and Capirotada, his memoir about growing up on the Mexico-Arizona border. Rios has received the Western Literature Association s Distinguished Achievement Award, the Arizona Governor s Arts Award, fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts, the Walt Whitman Award, the Western States Book Award for Fiction, six Pushcart Prizes in both poetry and fiction, and inclusion in the Norton Anthology of Modern Poetry, as well as more than 200 other national and international literary anthologies. At the lecture in April he gave readings of his poems When Giving Is All We Have and Nani and spoke about several topics, including teaching at Arizona State University and coming from a family of storytellers. Biological Collections Back on Campus Alumna Audrey Clark 05, digital herbarium specialist at the Pringle Herbarium at the University of Vermont, coordinated the donation to the College s Natural History Institute of about 140 western plant specimens, a dozen of which were collected by the famous and prolific botanist Cyrus Pringle 130 years ago in what is now northern Mexico. Shortly after the Pringle Herbarium donation, Yavapai College transferred its entire herbarium containing approximately 8,500 specimens to the Natural History Institute in May. Since then a group of dedicated volunteers and student workers have been tirelessly processing the specimens so that students, researchers, and community members can access them. Town-Gown Sustainability Consulting A team of sustainability consultants from Prescott College funded by the Sustainability Council completed a rapid sustainability assessment of the local Skyview Public Charter School (founded 15 years ago by Prescott College staff with a vision for more progressive and holistic educational offerings). The assessment was led by Prescott College faculty member Peter Sherman and his wife Mariana Altrichter. Other members of staff and a team of undergraduate field assistants provided management support and subject matter expertise. The Skyview Sustainability Assessment offers a model for blending experiential education with sustainability consulting services and providing the blend of services to the local community, Peter says. The assessment model may provide opportunity for similar projects in the future. Start By Believing President John Van Domelen signed a proclamation this spring committing Prescott College to the Start by Believing campaign against sexual violence, and recognizing Arizona s status as the first state to adopt the campaign. The premise of Start by Believing is that your reaction makes a difference. When someone tells you they ve been raped, there s a simple response. Start by Believing. A friend or family member is typically the first person a victim confides in after an assault. Knowing how to respond is critical a negative response can worsen the trauma.

Prescott College, Tucson Hosts XITO Conference The Institute for Teaching & Organizing (XITO), a sponsored program of Prescott College, hosted its summer institute from July 10 through 12. Over 35 educators, activists and organizers from around the country participated in this intensive professional development training on the pedagogy and philosophy of the acclaimed Mexican American Studies Program, which has been outlawed in Arizona. XITO s three-day institute included workshops by former Mexican American Studies teachers Sean Arce, Curtis Acosta, Norma Gonzalez, and Jose Gonzalez along with Prescott College Tucson Director Anita Fernández and El Paso activist Georgina Perez. An evening event featured graduates from the Mexican American Studies Program and a performance by the Los Angeles theater group the Chicano Secret Service. Proceeds from the Institute went to support young urban teachers travel to Tucson, with additional funds held for scholarships for high school students taking XITO s college-credit-bearing courses. For more information on XITO visit Presidential Search Update During the summer months 65 applicants submitted letters, resumes, and references for consideration by the Search Committee. The Committee, with assistance of the consulting firm Academic Search, reviewed all of these materials and evaluated the applicants according to criteria that reflect the values of Prescott College and the needed qualities identified for an effective president. The pool included outstanding and accomplished men and women from both academic and non-academic backgrounds, and in August the Committee narrowed down the list to nine people to be interviewed at an off-site location. Additional vetting and reference checking continues. Following the off-site interviews, there will be a selection of three finalists to visit campus in October. There will be opportunities for both formal and informal communication with each finalist. Keep your ears and eyes peeled for your chance to meet these finalists! 6 Transitions Fall 2014

10 Women s Studies at Prescott College: The Beginnings By Lisa Stewart Garrison 75 By the late 1960s and early 70s, as feminism swept the country, dramatically changing what women expected of themselves and each other, the seeds of the women s movement were taking root at Prescott College. With its slogan the personal is political, feminism was primarily impacting urban centers. Few would have predicted that young women at a secluded college campus in the chaparral country of the Granite Dells of Central Arizona might be emboldened to develop courses of study and ways of living and talking together that would contribute to the broader movement and transform the lives of those of us involved. In many ways, fertile ground for women s empowerment was in place by 1968 when Prescott College formally launched its signature three-week Wilderness Orientation Program. The first cadre of young women participated in intensive hiking, kayaking, river rafting, and mountaineering; faced physical challenges, took risks, and engaged in cooperative teamwork, gaining newfound confidence in their strength and problem solving abilities. Three days spent alone in the wilderness nurtured qualities of self-reliance and a sense of spiritual connection with nature. Yet as classes formally began, women students quickly learned that experiencing competence in wilderness settings and knowing how and when to use words to confront sexism were very different things. At Prescott College, in that era, men greatly outnumbered women on the faculty and in the syllabi. Out of a faculty of 37, only three were women. As women students we embraced Prescott s philosophy of taking individual responsibility for directing one s own education. We were learning to read maps and to map out our lives. But we were also searching for role models and determined to find faculty on campus to help us articulate our insights. Prescott College s first women s consciousness raising group met at the school s newly opened Center for the Person on October 19, We found our faculty mentor in Heather Keen (now Heather Starsong), who had arrived on campus to teach modern dance and establish ayoga program. A group of 12 to 15 of us met weekly, throughout the year, verbalizing feelings and perceptions previously left unsaid, grappling with our increasing anger, and finding our common ground as women. Although at first reluctant to serve in an advisory capacity, Heather stepped in, on condition that we accept her as a fellow learner, since she didn t claim this issue to be within her area of expertise. Feminism was focusing on women and their bodies at that time, but the emphasis was on reproductive rights, access to 8 Transitions Fall 2014 healthcare, sexuality, and self-defense. Heather s commitment to embodiment through improvisational dance and the inward journey set a distinctive tone for our explorations. She invited special guests to meet with us, such as the ritual and ceremony maker Elizabeth Cogburn. Heather s grounded presence in a turbulent time of intense social awakening demonstrated for us what it is to be an emotionally courageous woman. The provocative influence of feminist theory and the intellectual firepower of Peggy Rourke and Sarah White, 1972, by Beliz Brother confrontation were alive and well among women at Prescott College in the early 1970s. A feminist critique of the Orientation Program began to emerge. Give us experiences that lead us out of our comfort zone, by all means. But Outward Bound s creed then To Strive, To Seek, To Find, and Not To Yield (Alfred Lord Tennyson) evoked a summit mentality, a push for the peak, and an unwillingness to surrender that was increasingly discomfiting to women. A group of us set up a feminist dorm. Hot-off-the-press feminist manifestos, forwarded to us by my sister in California, were coveted like contraband. Dog-eared copies of the women s newspaper Off Our Backs were passed from room to room. We were yearning to read literature by women and to find heroines whose journeys might inspire our own. In the fall of 1971 fellow women students approached me to teach the College s first women s literature class. We organized ourselves as an Independent Study with Heather Keen and literature professor Dr. Stan Witt serving as faculty advisors. By the following spring, 25 women were enrolled. We supplemented a syllabus of novels by women with readings of feminist theory and criticism, acquired through pilgrimages to bookstores in Phoenix and Berkeley. We were making our way through the writings of Shulamith Firestone, Kate Millet, and Robin Morgan. The poetry books of Sylvia Plath, Anne Sexton, and Judy Grahn were on perpetual reserve for us in the library. Throughout the spring of 1972, we met each Monday evening in an old grey farmhouse off campus (then home to a group of Prescott students and their small herd of goats). Inspired by our readings, our conversations ranged from women s changing identities, to women loving women, and Women s Literature at Prescott College was my entry point to everything. What we read and talked about, where we met, who we understood ourselves to be, opened the door to what I would study, whom I would love, how I would live and work. Melanie Lohmann 75 Lisa S. Garrison, 1972
