Happy First Day of Classes

Dear Colleagues,

Let me be among the first to wish you a happy first day of classes!

A new semester comes with renewed opportunities to connect with students and colleagues, pursue meaningful and innovative research and continue to achieve the goals set forth in our strategic plan. I hope you are as excited as I am about these opportunities.

Thank you for your ongoing dedication and commitment to our students, to your discipline and to the teaching profession. Please know my door, digital and physical, is always open to you.

Here’s to a wonderful, rewarding spring semester
