Marty's Message

We are so fortunate to have many alumni who support the College of Professional Studies. A recent example relates to the first story in this week’s message.

Keith Anderson, a 1985 business administration alum, sponsored a book called The Leadership Challenge: How to Make Extraordinary Things Happen in Organizations that each of our 250 senior business students received during “Kickstart Your Career!” programming.

The Leadership Challenge was a perfect supplement to what students learned and new skills that were developed during the week.

Alumni like Keith play an important role in student success.
