Dear Friends and Colleagues,
We are more than halfway through the fall term, and the cooler weather and the impending holidays signal to me a time to reflect. I believe we can all agree that the Fall 2016 semester has been memorable, particularly for its presidential surprises. By the time we all returned to campus, we had learned about the unexpected departure of our University President, Robert J. Jones, at the end of September. Two months later, we witnessed the unforeseen election of a U.S. President who – based on most polls – was not forecast to win. Yet, as disconcerting as abrupt changes in leadership and direction might be, I have observed how the College of Arts and Sciences thrives and moves forward, even in uncertain times. The source of our resilience is our dedicated corps of faculty, students and staff who carry out the College’s mission of excellence in the pursuit of knowledge each day. In doing so, they achieve noteworthy accomplishments, and I invite you to read about some of those accomplishments in our Fall 2016 newsletter.

I wish you a very productive and successful remainder of the semester and hope that it will be pleasantly unsurprising. 


Edelgard Wulfert, Dean
