Marty's Message

It was nice to see many of you attend the announcement of Sentry Insurance’s gift. In case you missed it, you can read more in this week’s Monday message.
 
By funding two professorships and supporting a new bachelor’s degree in data analytics, Sentry’s gift will make a big difference in our ability to educate the workforce for the future.
 
It is an honor to accept a gift like this because it says that a local partner recognizes our importance to the region and has full confidence in our faculty and staff. In this case, the partner is Sentry who is showing confidence in our CPS School of Business and Economics and the Department of Computing and New Media Technologies in the College of Letters and Science.
 
We are lucky to have Sentry and many other local partners who are willing to invest in us.
 
Marty Loy,
Dean
