I always enjoy the energy that the start of the semester brings. I'm excited that I'll be back in the classroom this semester to teach a section of UMD Seminar. We had someone cancel at the last minute and I took the opportunity to take a deeper look at the course and to also have a chance to keep in touch with our incoming students.
As you know, we have several major initiatives going on including Program Prioritization and establishment of the new Governance system. I'm going to use this blog as a way to get communication out to supplement the communications coming out through other means. Please feel free to post questions and I'll answer as many as possible (focusing on the ones that may be of interest to the broad UMD community).
I hope you have a great first week of classes,
