President's Updates

Over six months ago, when I first met you, I made a promise that I would not spend my first year sitting on my hands. Instead, I would move forward with a plan to focus on academic excellence. Today, I am more optimistic than I have ever been that we will achieve our vision of achieving eminence.

Since I assumed the presidency of the university last July, I have met with countless members of our community. Whether those meetings were with faculty, students, staff, or alumni, there was virtual unanimity with respect to one proposition: our top priority needs to be academic and research excellence. With this message, I invite you to join me in what I hope will be a transformational process of aligning our resources and our efforts to achieve our aspirations as a preeminent public research institution. 

As the fall term and finals wrap up, I want to wish you all very happy holidays and a safe winter break. My first full academic term as your president leaves me inspired, invigorated, and impressed by the commitment and talent of our community of scholars.
