Galligan Jr., as well as reflections from alumni and trustees followed by formal remarks from President Galligan.

There are five primary areas of investment for The Power of Infinity campaign, including (1) health professions, (2) business, (3) the arts, (4) always learning and (5) sustainability. These priorities reinforce the Colby-Sawyer belief that a curriculum isn't just learned, it's lived.
