Marty's Message

We talk a lot about our students' placement at internships and clinical sites, but CPS students and faculty also volunteer a lot of their time and talents in the community. The Monday Message highlights a few examples including the women's basketball pancake breakfast for Project Embrace and hundreds of volunteers raking leaves during Make a Difference Day.

It's all part of the CPS tagline:

We are proud to be CPS.

Marty Loy,
CPS Dean
