Welcome to the start of a new academic year! This time is so filled with excitement and energy, as the months of hard work finally pay off. We enthusiastically welcome our students to campus to begin a new year of discovery, learning, and collaboration. I am so grateful to our fantastic staff members in every department who worked diligently to prepare a warm welcome for our students. Whether your role is highly engaged and “on the ground” with our students or you work more behind the scenes, our students are the reason we’re here, and the work that each one of you engages in everyday is critical to our students’ experience. Thank you for your dedication to excellence in every way. Continue reading . . .
