Checking in with Dean Forbes -- March 2019

I recently shared the College’s FY20 Compact and the 2018 Annual Report. I encourage you to spend some time reviewing these documents when you have a chance. Taken together, the College’s compact and annual report provide a snapshot of our past, present and future. The contents of both documents speak to what we have achieved and what we can yet achieve through our collective efforts.

Checking in With Dean Forbes -- February 2019

Prospective students are coming to campus to learn more about what we have to offer that is distinct from other institutions. The high caliber of research that happens here -- and by extension the research opportunities available to them -- is at the top of the list.
