International students in virtually any institution confront the challenge of fully participating in community life. When students' native cultures and languages are not shared or reflected in the community majority, the best intentions from their domestic classmates and institutional peers are often not enough to address systemic issues of race, ethnicity, and power. McCormick is no stranger to these knotty realities – but it does work at naming them and keeping them on the radar.

This year during my McCormick sabbatical I spent two weeks in Jerusalem for study at the Shalom Hartman Institute as part of the Christian Leadership Initiative of the American Jewish Committee. Some of you may know that President Cynthia Campbell and Professor Emeritus Fred Holper participated in this program in the summers of 2008 and 2009.

Grayson asks me “Why did I choose McCormick in the first place?”  That is a loaded question!  There is so much background to get to the answer to that question but I tell many people, “I did not choose McCormick, I believe that God chose McCormick for me.”  And I add to that…, “Now that I have been to and through McCormick I am a part of it for life.  You can’t get rid of me!”
