Of Mind & Heart newsletter

Whitworth’s 17th president, Bill Robinson, wanted a way to keep alumni, parents and community supporters apprised of Whitworth news. In his first year, he composed the first Of Mind & Heart monthly newsletter, which, paragraph by paragraph, gave an update on each area of campus. But the publication was more than a newsletter; it was a winsome, thought-provoking, spiritual reflection of the university – one that hundreds of friends of Whitworth read from beginning to end. At the close of Robinson’s presidency, in 2010, the university published a collection of his newsletter’s opening and closing paragraphs, which captured the zeitgeist at Whitworth over 17 years and provided a unique meditation on Whitworth’s mission.
