Welcome back to campus. I hope we are all returning to campus well rested and ready to tackle this semester with renewed energy and purpose. Following up from various conversations last semester, I would like to share a few thoughts on how we intend to move forward with the following issues: diversity and inclusion; sexual misconduct; and the academic work load. We discussed many issues last semester, but these three strike me as the highest priority items to focus our attention.
Please take some time to read the memo below (pdf) for some reflections on what we learned last semester, and how I think we can achieve a more excellent institution in the future.
