Over the last few months, I have had the opportunity to immerse myself in our college community and promote our mission. I am struck by the passion that our faculty and students have for learning, discovery, and problem solving; the dedication of our hard-working staff in keeping the college running efficiently and in collegial manner; and the engagement and generosity of our science alumni.
My transition has not been the only one in recent months; we have recruited, hired, and also shifted some of the best faculty and staff into pivotal roles that will help the college succeed in achieving its strategic objectives.
We have a great foundation on which to build future success in the college. As the new dean, I will continue to reach out to our college community as we build and shape the future of our college. Please join me in transforming the Eberly College of Science to achieve its full potential as a vibrant and diverse scientific and educational community that is internationally renowned for excellence, and for improving the world through its discoveries and solutions to life’s most pressing challenges.
