As we head into the Thanksgiving holiday, I'd like to express my sincere gratitude to everyone who has helped me to feel at home here at Stevenson University over the past three months. I can honestly say that everyone I have had the pleasure of interacting with has been helpful, even in the face of some odd requests!  The team of HaSS Department Chairs and Program Directors, the Academic Affairs leadership, and my fellow Deans have been particularly lovely, gracious, and patient.  Thank you all.
