Welcome from the Dean

 |  Fall 2016

aprilboultonTo all of our new and returning graduate students, welcome to the 2016-2017 academic year! This is the inaugural issue of the Graduate School’s online newsletter, which will be produced at the start of each new semester, in September, February and June. In this issue, you will find stories about notable alumni, exciting new programs (including our first doctoral degrees) and a number of updates on new opportunities and events geared toward our graduate students.

Here at the Graduate School, our top priority is the success and well-being of our graduate students, so rest assured that you are at the center of every plan we develop and every activity we offer. I know several of you have been following my #30HoodTips on Twitter for ideas that will ensure your success here at the College. If you have not yet found the Graduate School on social media, it’s not too late to start! Be sure to friend or follow us to receive a variety of important updates and special opportunities both on and off campus.

In closing, I hope that your fall semester is already off to a great start. Please do not hesitate to let my staff or me know how we can improve your time here at Hood. I thank you for the diverse talents and leadership you bring—it enriches and strengthens our community!

Best wishes,

BoultonSignature 001
