I hope that you had a nice Thanksgiving break and welcome back to campus.  We wanted to remind everyone that tomorrow we will host internationally renowned John Gardner on campus for our kick-off event for the CSI Foundations of Excellence project.  This project will be a wonderful opportunity for us to evaluate some of the goals concerning first-year students that have emerged from our Strategic Planning process. The formal kick-off begins in the Center for the Arts (Building 1P) at 2:30pm, with a reception to follow.

We hope that you will attend the campus-wide reception with Dr. Gardner at 4:00pm tomorrow in the Center for the Arts upper-level reception area.  This is a great opportunity to interact with Dr. Gardner and to discuss important issues related to undergraduate education.
