Summer Leadership Projects

This week’s edition of What’s on My Mind? provides a quick summary of the summer leadership projects in preparation for the 2017-2018 academic year. I also express my thanks to staff and faculty for the very good work around our very positive fall enrollment picture.

Please take a look.

Greetings All,

Summer session is well underway!
