    Dear Colleagues:


    I view this as an opportunity to encourage, facilitate, and nurture the bringing together of ideas: of the faculty, students and outside experts. I believe that ideas “move” between people and synthesize into new ideas and knowledge that represent a wide variety of academic disciplines and practices.
