    Faculty and Staff Made it a Great Year

    Dr. Joseph Savoie -- Fri, 05/17/2013 - 1:27pm

    Dear Faculty and Staff,

    I’d like to thank you for making this academic year a great one.

    In recent days, I've attended several events with graduating seniors. In offering their parting thoughts, a common theme has persisted. Many soon-to-be grads mentioned professors by name who they noted as exceptional mentors. Several, especially those from other countries or states, explained how staff members made them feel welcome. Perhaps they haven't always told you that directly, but in sharing their sentiments, they were expressing gratitude for your dedication and service.

    Students Made it a Great Year

    Dr. Joseph Savoie -- Wed, 05/15/2013 - 12:50pm

    Dear Students,

    Now that finals are complete, I’d like to thank you for making this past year a great one. At every level, you moved UL Lafayette forward by big leaps.

    We started the year by welcoming the most academically talented freshman class ever to enter the University. We also opened the newest residence halls in the Rose Garden, enhancing the physical space of our campus.

    Provost Update

    Dr. Joseph Savoie -- Fri, 05/03/2013 - 9:09am

    I would like to thank Dr. Carolyn Bruder for her dedication as an exceptional Interim Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs. She is retiring this summer after leading our academic affairs division for nearly three years, longer than she first intended.
