Welcome to the newest edition of Glimpse – the Webster University Alumni Digital Publication. In this issue, you will read alumni stories featuring Award-winning authors, a marathon runner who knows no limits, and an Army sergeant determined to beat the odds.

In addition to stories about our incredible alumni, you will also hear about some of Webster University’s recent accomplishments, beginning with our newest addition to the main campus: Browning Hall, the Interdisciplinary Science Building. This state-of-the-art facility will be the center for collaboration among faculty, staff, and students in the sciences and humanities and will help fill the community’s need for more STEM-related programs. I hope you will join us for our grand opening celebration on October 19 in Webster Groves.

This year we are proud to be celebrating the 50th anniversary of Webster’s Conservatory of Theatre Arts in the Leigh Gerdine College of Fine Arts. To mark this special occasion, the Conservatory will be hosting a weekend celebration April 20-22 for alumni, donors, and members of the Webster community. In this issue of Glimpse, you can explore the history of the Conservatory and hear stories from Peter Sargent, dean of the Leigh Gerdine College of Fine Arts, who has been an integral part of its success.

Finally, with the recent relocation of our Webster Ghana campus in Accra, I invite you to take a closer look at our re-envisioned campus that serves a growing population of local students, provides unique study abroad experiences, and proudly embodies the spirit “We are all Webster.”

I hope this issue of Glimpse inspires you and reminds you of the special connection you have to your alma mater and fellow alumni.
