Dear Friends and Colleagues,
The spring semester is turning out to be very busy and extremely productive as illustrated by the interesting news and announcements from across the College.
First and foremost, in addition to our day to day responsibilities, many of us have participated in President Rodríguez’s Strategic Planning activities. Over the next few months, it will be critical to collectively adapt our departmental plans to align closely with the University Strategic Plan.
In addition, as many of you know, we are approaching the 25th anniversary of the formation of the College of Arts and Sciences; the inauguration of the College occurred on October 26th 1993. A committee of faculty and staff are making preparations to celebrate this in the fall. We have many accomplishments to be proud of and will celebrate this in October with the University community at large.
Best wishes for the remainder of the semester. I wish you a rejuvenating and productive summer.
