Dear Panther Family,
We are just a few days away from kicking off a week of exciting events around the Investiture, and Dr. Bridget and I hope you will join us as we celebrate what makes our university so distinctive and unique.
I have learned so much about this incredible institution over the last year— its people, its traditions and its history. I am so grateful and humbled to be leading us into the future. This week is a chance for us to reflect on what makes us US and an opportunity for us to come together and be proud of what we have achieved together.
We have put together a lineup of great events around our university pillars, starting with a President’s Day of Service this Sunday at our Clarkston Campus. Throughout the week, we’ll celebrate our research and innovation, student success, college to careers, and identity and placemaking. I hope to see you all as we open our incredible new Convocation Center next Thursday and I would be so very grateful to see you in the stands at my Investiture Ceremony next Friday. I promise I will do my best to honor our past and chart a course forward. We will continue to excel together.
Georgia State is truly the most significant university of our time, and it is truly OUR PLACE and OUR TIME
All the best,
