“We are determined not only to transmit to young women and men the knowledge our species has acquired and valued, but also to nurture their intellectual capacities as producers of new knowledge. And – yes, we are not embarrassed to say it – we are determined to impress upon them in the importance of spiritual life, of faith, of honor, of ethical awareness, of character. We do all these things here at Muhlenberg because we believe quite simply that they are essential preparation for lives of leadership and service.”

- from Peyton R. Helm’s inaugural address

 

 

 

THE INAUGURATION OF
PEYTON RANDOLPH HELM

A Celebration of Muhlenberg College


President Helm gives the inaugural address

“Though [liberal arts colleges] produce only 3% of our country’s college graduates, this tiny minority is disproportionately represented in every corner of our country’s leadership ranks. This meager 3% produced approximately 20% of all Pulitzer Prize winners and 20% of scientists inducted into the National Academy of Sciences…In fact, 19% of our nation’s presidents and 11% of Fortune 700 CEOs have been educated on the campuses of small liberal arts colleges like Muhlenberg.”

- from Peyton R. Helm’s inaugural address
