CAS: Progress and partnerships

‘State of College’ highlights accomplishments, looks forward

   In assessing the state of the College of Arts and Sciences, Dean George Watson cited such accomplishments of the past year as progress in improving diversity and inclusion, numerous successful partnerships and a “banner year” for hiring outstanding faculty. He spoke to a packed house in the Roselle Center for the Arts last month at the annual event. His address was followed by a talk by UD President Dennis Assanis and a reception to welcome new CAS faculty members.
