From the Ground Up

From the Ground Up

We build our lives on foundations. Some are literal — the base of the structures where we are born and raised, where we learn and grow, where we build our families and careers. Others are intangible — the groundwork upon which we establish our belief systems, our values, our institutions.

Foundations support us intellectually, creatively, morally and financially, and help to create protected, just and prosperous communities. Whether made of stone and brick or of people and principles, foundations provide us with safety, security and shelter and help us to build lives of mental, physical and social well-being. In this issue, we explore the foundations on which eight alums have built their lives.
