Description: James Davis Garden, a peaceful sanctuary tucked in near the Garden Level entry to the John Carroll Administration Building.
“A generous ethos of being and generous habit of mind is how I try to make meaning in my professional as well as my personal life. It isn’t so much about the committees that I chair or the programs that I create or the courses that I teach; I want it to be about how I conduct myself and how I interact with everyone I meet. It’s about showing my humanity—the pain and the joy and everything in between. That allows me to accept generosity—the passion and caring of others. And accompanying those with whom I live, work, and teach and trusting in them and in whatever relationship we have will hopefully allow me to express my generosity so that we can, in the words of Ignatius, both give without counting the cost and labor with that being its own reward.”
