Fall has arrived, as have our students. It is great to see students on campus and to be reminded of our core purpose “. . . to educate, serve, and inspire our diverse populations in the pursuit of their lifelong dreams and ambitions.” It is that core purpose that should continue to give us the passion and the energy to work together to create an ASU 2020 plan that will detail how best to accomplish this purpose.
I have been meeting with each department to discuss the importance of ASU 2020. Just as important, I have been learning and listening to the accomplishments of each department. I continue to be amazed by the talent of our faculty and staff and the commitment to serve our students and our community.
The campus on Edgemont and Richardson does not fully represent the reach ASU has and the impact on the San Luis Valley. Our calendar of events alone reflects a broad array of programs for the Valley and for our students. This calendar does not include how many of you are involved in the community and contribute many hours of service to improve the lives of those in the Valley.
I look forward to continuing to work with each of you to educate, serve, and inspire. Certainly, all that you do is an inspiration to me.
