I trust by now you’ve read the premier issue of the electronic newsletter that went out on May 31. It was a joy to assemble some of the many accomplishments in CNAS, and we look forward to our next edition in the fall.  The newsletter masthead image (pictured above) is linked from the CNAS homepage to a blog where it will be archived. Please share the information and links, too, as we need your help in outreach and promoting the college.  Thank you to all who contributed to the launch, especially my team in the dean’s office. Keep up the great work and send us anything we might use in the future. (The next newsletter is scheduled to go out before Thanksgiving.)


I hope you had a chance to see how far we’ve come and to see where we’re going. Check out these links for more info.
