Dear Member of the Campus Community:
Tuesday, in my third annual State of Union address, I outlined some of the highlights of the past year as well as the challenges facing the College and higher education in general.
We have a record number of applications. We are about to complete the Powering Union campaign. And we have begun transforming the residential experience through U Journey.
At the same time, we face a demographic cliff that is challenging enrollment throughout higher education, as well as rising costs that affect students, families and employees.
In case you missed it, a recording of my State of Union is available here for students, faculty and staff.
You can read a news story about my State of Union address here.
Finally, as always, I welcome the thoughts of all members of our campus community. Students, faculty and staff are invited to my office hours each month. The next session is Tuesday, Feb. 7, at 4 p.m. in Wold 118 - Imagine Lab.
