Dean’s Message

Dean, Carol ShanklinAs we reflect on the gifts we have received throughout our lives, the one that has had the greatest effect has been the gift of education.

Other gifts, even though appreciated at the time of receipt, often become outdated, outgrown or no longer of interest, but the gift of education rarely loses its value as we use it daily in our lives.

A special thank you to graduate alumni who have contributed to the gift of education for our graduate students.

Your gifts have encouraged students to achieve more than we thought feasible.
