Within a few weeks, we will welcome over 2,000 new undergraduate students, hundreds of graduate and PhD scholars, dozens of new faculty and staff members, who all bring fresh energy and perspectives to the campus. I look forward to joining them in their initial SGT University exploration. My regular order of business is to engage broadly within our community to hear your ideas about the future of our university. As I plan to learn from all of you, I hope you will also take time to continue to learn from each other. As we all know, education within a university isn’t just about what happens in the classroom. Our entire community benefits from our diverse life experiences, which enrich both our life on campus and our ability to contribute to the world beyond SGT University. This is the ideal place to share and discuss ideas and perspectives that may be different from our own, in mutual understanding and respect. I am filled with optimism about the strength of our community, the trajectory of our university and the opportunity we have to magnify our impact on the world. You will hear more from me before long, and I hope to see you around campus—in your residences, offices and laboratories, at performances, presentations and other gatherings … and while cheering on our student athletes!
