Message from the Dean

To the Graduate and Professional Students, Faculty, and Staff,

Another semester is underway, and I look forward to what the new year has in store. Looking back at last semester, I had the opportunity to connect with graduate students during Donuts with the Dean and collaborate with numerous support units and graduate departments. Engaging with our community has been critical to my experience in this position so far, and I thank you all for the possibilities in continuing the important work that supports graduate education on our campus.

It is also essential that we remember to check in with ourselves and reach out for support as we move through challenges that will surely come our way. Though we are a spirited and diligent community, resources like Counseling and Psychology Services and the Writing Center can be helpful in minding well-being and reaching goals.

As we embark together on this spring semester, I anticipate more moments for connection with members of our remarkable community to continue learning from you all, enhancing our academic offerings, and ultimately facilitating an educational experience that is personally and professionally fulfilling.

Dean Hope
