As we begin the New Year, it is often a time to look back at what we have achieved during our previous year and look ahead to the upcoming year. I recently had the opportunity to do this at the annual State of the College Address. It was rewarding to report that we are well on our way to achieving the goals we set in January of 2013.
In order to provide our students with additional and much-needed financial assistance, we set the goal to grow the number of endowed scholarships. I am pleased to report our Advancement team has been successful with this quest, and they continue to work hard to further this goal. As a collaborative effort with faculty and academic leadership, we are in the final stages of designing a “wow” first-year academic and co-curricular experience for students. The new academic building is slated to break ground this spring, and we are ahead of the game in identifying the program needs and design for updating the athletic facilities for our students.
It is an exciting time to see the collective efforts toward our vision of becoming a college of choice for business and leadership education!
