Colleagues Newsletter was originally conceived as a high quality journal that would promote civic discourse, create a community of writers and invite campus-wide engagement, participation and collaboration in the learning process. It is the only communiqué on campus that fulfills this mission and since its inception has featured articles by more than 600 faculty, staff and students, including both nationally recognized and first-time authors in more than 119 issues.
Colleagues, Volume 24 Number 2, December 2014
This edition presents the poetry, memoirs and fiction of our colleagues and reminds me, once again, of the incredible talents and wealth of experiences that we bring to the St. Kate’s community. Perhaps in reading this work, you will be inspired to put thought and memory onto a page. As poet Mary Oliver writes in her instructions for living a life, “Pay attention. Be astonished. Tell about it.” And enjoy this read. -Gay Herzberg, Editor

Colleagues, Volume 23 Number 4, May 2014
This issue of Colleagues features articles on resilience, both an important, timely topic and an essential quality for living well in a complex world. We defined resilience as an ability to successfully cope with challenges, to navigate skillfully in the face of adversity and to interact with the environment in ways that promote well-being. We asked writers from many different arenas in our community to explore resilience from their particular vantage points. Their articles shed light on how to develop it, nurture it and teach it. Our hope is to continue to foster a great wealth of resilience here at St. Kate's: in ourselves, in our students. –Gay Herzberg, Editor
