Watch: Sean Decatur '90

Sean Decatur ‘90 delivered the Collection address at Alumni Weekend 2015. 

During his Collection, Decatur reflected on his transformative time at Swarthmore and his career in higher education. He also explained how a liberal arts college provides a complete education, and illustrated how he has "never encountered a question or problem in life that could not be answered at least in part by a basic description of chemical reaction dynamics and then invoking a potential energy diagram."

Decatur, who graduated from the College with a B.A. in chemistry, is the president of Kenyon College.
