And Happy Week 12!

It’s not about what you see, it’s about what you envision. I saw that on an Instagram post the other day and it made me pause and reflect for a moment. As those papers and projects take more and more of your day, and as those deadlines eat into your nights, we hope that the bigger picture, whatever that is for you, inspires you to keep going. And remember, in every step of the way, we’re here, with you and for you. From ISPaSO’s notices desk, below is this week’s quick rundown.

Summer Research Opportunity
This summer, Dr. Sarah Andrews will be researching factors that contribute to food insecurity in counties surrounding Principia College. She is looking for two research assistants, paid at a rate of $11/hour for 35-40 hours per week, for six weeks from about May 17 through the end of June. If you are interested, please send Dr. Sarah Andrews an email ( by Friday, April 16. In the email, please write a paragraph explaining why you are interested in this opportunity.

Equity and Inclusion Survey
Please take some time to fill out this equity and inclusion survey, designed by the Equity and Inclusion Working Group (EIWG) and Dr. Jennifer Stollman and intended for all Principia community members, in order to better understand the variety of experiences with equity and inclusion, as well as a sense of belonging and mattering at Principia. Your input is highly valuable in this process! The survey is completely anonymous and should take about 12-15 minutes to complete. Learn more
