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.

Connie Foster
