Sr. Patricia Homan to Become Chatfield’s First-Ever Vice President of Mission & Identity
July 29th, 2014
Chatfield College, a private, Catholic liberal arts college offering two year degrees in Liberal Arts located in St. Martin and Cincinnati, is pleased to introduce Sr. Patricia Homan as its Vice President of Mission & Identity, a new position at the college. Homan, who previously served as the Associate Dean and Site Director of the St. Martin campus, has done a wonderful job developing campus ministry programs and student leadership initiatives.
In this new role, Sr. Patricia will also have external responsibilities, representing Chatfield at conferences and gatherings pertaining to mission, service-learning, and Catholic higher education. Under her direction, the Chatfield community will be seeing new and enhanced student-centered programs and opportunities that support and reinforce the important mission and recognize and glorify the Ursuline identity and charism at Chatfield College. The mission of Chatfield College is to empower students who might best succeed within our supportive, small college experience. Success is demonstrated through the achievement of established learning outcomes in a liberal arts education grounded in our Catholic heritage. Sr. Patricia will also continue to be Associate Dean and Site Director of the St. Martin campus.
“It is a privilege to serve as the first Vice President of Mission and Identity for Chatfield College. Founded by the Ursulines of Brown County in 1971, Chatfield’s mission remains focused on the education of the whole person in a small supportive environment. Working with the staff, faculty and students to provide the best educational opportunity is truly a gift,” Sr. Patricia states.
President John Tafaro adds, “We know we are just one of several options for prospective students seeking an associate’s degree, but as the only accredited, faith-based, associate’s degree college in the region, there is a real distinction between Chatfield and any other school. Sr. Patricia combines years of experience in ministry and education. Her unique background, lifelong connection to Brown and our neighboring counties, as well as to this campus, combined with the work she has done over the last few years, make her the perfect person to lead Chatfield’s focus on our important Mission and Identity.”
Sr. Patricia currently resides in Eastgate and when she is not at Chatfield, she enjoys cooking and baking.
