"Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving." Albert Einstein
This column is about stability and change, necessary opposites that interact to complete the whole. To create some context, last fall Westminster hosted a visit from our accrediting organization, Independent Schools Association of the Southwest (ISAS). The ISAS Visiting Committee was on campus for three days, and its task was, at it stated in its final report, “to assess the quality of the mission, vision, goals, and program of Westminster.” We had worked hard to prepare for the visit, and though nerve-wracking and time-consuming, we enjoyed the committee members and appreciated how seriously they took their work. We were re-accredited for another ten years which is important, but what really matters are the insights and suggestions the Visiting Committee gave us.
