President learning and telling Silver Lake story

Since becoming president of Silver Lake College on July 1, Dr. George Arnold has been both learning and telling the Silver Lake story.

Now he's determined to expand that story by enhancing college offerings without losing sight of what Silver Lake College is and does.

He is interested in adding more residential students and expanding athletics and other student activities.

He's already made some low-cost changes - paint, adding ping-pong and pool tables at the student center and more recreational sports.

There are several things Arnold wants to preserve:

• Silver Lake as a primarily undergraduate liberal arts college. The difference between it and a university is that Silver Lake's faculty is dedicated to teaching, not to research, writing for professional journals and securing grants while leaving much of the teaching to graduate assistants, Arnold said.

• its Catholic identity and its "feel."

• the commissioned ministry program offered in conjunction with the Green Bay Diocese to prepare lay people for employment in church ministries, because it meets a real need, he said.   Full story ...
