It’s hard to believe that a decade has passed since I arrived at Augustana in the summer of 2003. Later this week, Jane and I will begin a coast-to-coast tour of the country that will give me an opportunity to thank Augustana alumni for their support.
In addition to celebrating the accomplishments of the past 10 years, I also hope to share what’s ahead for the college. I plan to discuss some of the critical challenges the college faces in the years ahead and how our next strategic planning process will address these challenges. I also want to share the personal goals I have identified that will guide my leadership of the college in the future. When we are in your area, I hope you will be able to join us.
