Counting my blessings…

I get such energy from our amazing students! Here I am with Adam Nicholson, Haylie Arb and Farah Alramadhan.

It’s that time of year when many of us gather with family and friends to pause and count our blessings, enjoy a meal, maybe take a long walk among the fall leaves, perhaps watch some football.  It’s been a VERY full and productive year for our College of Health and Human Sciences students, faculty, and staff and I am grateful for so many things, thankful to so many people.  Among my blessings…

Our many alumni, donors and friends who have made gifts, large and small to support research, scholarships, faculty, and special programs, and who fulfill our mission of Taking Care of Life in their communities.

Every one of our 3,300 students – for their diligence, perseverance, vision, and passion that goes into their academics, volunteerism , and service to students.

Our new director and the ongoing construction and anticipated June 2011 completion of our Hallie Ford Center for Healthy Children and Families in the heart of campus.

Members of our Administrative Team and Faculty Transition Team that are guiding the evolution of our college into the College of Public Health and Human Sciences.

Our shining stars, faculty and staff recognized by the University and by our college for their outstanding accomplishments and service.

Each member of our extraordinary faculty and staff, for their commitment to our mission and enthusiasm for our vision that guarantee our very bright future!

Thank you all for being part of our worldwide Health and Human Sciences Family!
