January 21, 2010 — Haitian Relief Effort

Dr. Joseph Savoie -- Thu, 01/21/2010 - 11:26am

Dear Students, Faculty and Staff,

Campus is abuzz again and it is wonderful to have our students and faculty back.  It is my hope that everyone is settling into the routine of a new semester after an enjoyable holiday break.

We are all saddened to learn about the catastrophic events in Haiti in the past week.  This tragedy reminds us of just how quickly life can change but also how people from every background can work together for a common and worthy cause.
