State of the College - September 15, 2015

Last year at my first State of the College address, I shared observations from my perspective as a new dean who had spent the months prior to arriving on campus and my early time on campus talking to as many faculty, staff, students, and alumni as I could.

One thing that was clear in these conversations was the shared desire for the college to begin taking actions that are aligned with a strategic direction. We needed to act now to improve our situation, rather than wait for others to improve it for us.

This year I’m especially pleased to highlight the progress we’re making due to the exceptional efforts of our faculty, staff, and students, and the opportunities we have as we continue on the road ahead.
