Volume 9, Issue 2 - August 29, 2011

This Week's Message

Welcome to Week 2! I hope your first week of classes were exciting and energizing. It is great to have all the faculty and students back on campus bringing this place to life.

In his opening passage in A tale of Two Cities (1859), Dickens wrote:

"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, ........., it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us"

We have a lot of work that lies ahead of us this year. However, I strongly believe that it is up to us to seize the moment and decide that this is the "spring of hope" and that there is "everything before us." I say this acknowledging that we face tough challenges in these economic times but we have much to be proud of and much to build upon. I ask for your active participation in the coming year at many levels. Some of the most immediate issues include:

I am looking forward to the tough but thoroughly engaging, discussions that lie ahead of us. Thank you!

Pareena
Dean of the College
