Dear students, faculty, and staff,
This week we celebrate commencement. It’s the time of year when we not only reflect on the hard work and achievements of our graduates but of everyone across the university.
We should be proud of our new innovations in student success, highly rated academic programs, groundbreaking research, remarkable individual accomplishments, and athletic championships. All across campus, Volunteers are making a difference.
We should be bold in celebrating our achievements and outspoken in telling the world about the great things we are doing. I know that it is the pride in our work and the impact it makes that keep all of us striving for excellence each day.
As always, thank you for all you do.
