Welcome everyone to the Fall 2022 Semester. We hope that you have had a restorative and peaceful summer and you are feeling ready for the new academic year.
Attending orientations, meetings, and SPDs are likely the first thing on most people's minds, along with finalizing those last few modules, but we invite you all to an all Faculty Luncheon on Friday, August 12th, at 11:30am in Building 20 (The Library), Room 2051. We'll give a full report on CBA changes, answer any and all questions you have for the upcoming year, and meet and greet with everyone again. Please attend if you are able and invite a friend! Luncheons are being planned for our other campuses and we will share information about those soon.
We begin this year with many changes. A ratified contract, many of our faculty friends have retired or moved on to different positions, and we lost our dear colleague Carla Williams this summer. But we arrive back on campus entering a new era. Globally we are coming out of shells and entering classrooms with a little more confidence, a great deal of resiliency, and we're ready. We and our new batch of faculty are willing to take up the torch and do what is most important: provide our students with outstanding and quality educations.
Again, welcome back and hope to see you during Convocation and at lunch on Friday!
