Marty's Message

It looks like everyone is off to a good start to a new semester, or shall I say a new start to a good semester!
Speaking of new starts, and good starts, one colleague from each of our departments has agreed to serve on a new college-wide task force focused on improving inclusiveness and diversity within the College of Professional Studies. The task force will advise the college on matters of inclusiveness and diversity, encourage inclusiveness and diversity within member CPS departments, and make one tangible improvement to CPS’s inclusive culture or our appreciation of diversity each year.
Members of the task force are: Nisha Fernando (IA), Celine Kline (HPHD), Nanc Slizewski (SHCP), Maysee Herr (SOE), Beth Kinslow (PEAT), Jill Millis (Athletics), Elle Wu (SBE), Maggie Watson (ComD) and Michael Butcher (Military Science).

Marty Loy,
Dean CPS
