Letter From The Dean

Now, more than ever, we need your help to prepare students to be tomorrow’s leaders. The Rising Tide Campaign is a call to action. By supporting initiatives in this campaign, you are joining a coalition of students, faculty, alumni and friends focused on providing better opportunities for generations to come.

The timing of The Rising Tide Capital Campaign couldn’t be better. As our world becomes increasingly globalized and society begins to tackle problems never faced before, we need innovative ideas and creative solutions. We need students who know how to serve their communities and how to solve whatever problems come their way. We need researchers who think about problems differently, using their knowledge and expertise to improve our world.

Join us in being part of this transformative initiative as we prepare future leaders and solve our world’s most pressing problems.

Thank you!

Dr. Joseph P. Messina
