It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the Spring Semester 2016 as your new Vice Chancellor. I have been received with such remarkable warmth and generosity that I am truly humbled and grateful.

Please also join me in welcoming the 803 new students, 3 faculty, and 2 staff members who have joined us this semester. We wish them success in their new institutional home and we all stand to benefit from the talents and gifts each one of them brings to the university.
