It is always my distinct pleasure to recognize the accomplishments of our alumni, faculty and students. From four outstanding alumni and five faculty college award recipients to 29 promotion and tenure appointment announcements, we had much to highlight at our annual Celebrating Achievement and Success event. And just one week later, we welcomed many of you back to campus for Alumni Weekend. Not only did a CAS alumus receive the Alumni Wall of Fame award, I had the joy of returning to the classroom that Saturday to participate in “The Power of PBL.” Our college continues to lead the way in academics, research and publication engagement, and I thank you all for playing a part in our success.
