Note of thanks
Dear University Community:
As my time as Interim Chancellor draws to a close
this weekend, I want to extend a note of thanks to the entire campus
community for your support. In a period of declining state support,
this past year saw us educate and support a record number of students,
while we made significant progress in bringing our strategic plan to
fruition. These achievements would not have been possible if it were
not for your skill and dedication. I send my best wishes to Dean Van
Galen as he assumes the role of Chancellor next week. I am confident he
will provide the leadership needed to ensure that we continue to serve
as the learning nucleus for the St. Croix Valley.
