As I reflect on the past semester, and all the work, learning, and growth represented in the pages that follow, I am amazed. I am not surprised – we have bright and hardworking students, committed and engaged faculty and staff, visionary and supportive donors and friends – and we have been busy! But I am still amazed. Amazed and grateful for this extraordinary community – and all the opportunity it presents.
