On behalf of everyone at the College of Health Sciences, I am delighted to welcome you to campus for the first week of classes. Whether this is your first year at CHS—or your last—here you are part of a community of service-oriented scholars aspiring to change lives through education, research, healing, and care. At CHS, we’re in the business of opening doors. This college truly is the gateway to all aspects of the health sciences landscape, and our students push their limits to explore new possibilities and elevate their knowledge and skills to new levels.
I hope you are as excited as I am for the coming year. Your time here will pass more quickly than you can imagine, and our dedicated faculty and staff are here to help you make the most of your academic experience. We hope that you will study and work hard, but also focus on fostering a deep sense of compassion and belonging at CHS. Determination and graciousness are at the heart of our story and at CHS we want every student to know they belong. We hope you will join us on August 29 for the CHS Day of Belonging—a college-wide celebration of inclusivity.
I wish you a most happy and successful academic year. I know you will all do great things.
