Report to Community 2018-2019

Dean's message

Our Report to Community showcases the Faculty’s impact around the world, and is guided by our strategic plan, which is built on our three strategic priorities. Meet researchers who are taking on some of the world’s greatest challenges on Earth and in the skies, students who are pushing the limits of learning in and out of the classroom, professors and instructors who are making a difference in student learning, and members of our community who are creating places where science can thrive.

While we take pause to celebrate our achievements, we know that we still have work to do — and we are up for the challenge!

Thank you to our students, faculty, staff, volunteers, alumni, and supporters who have come together to foster new opportunities to create, discover, learn, and reach deeper into the local community and beyond.

I am excited for the next year, and look forward to you being a part of our success.
