  1. Thank you for your support of the AD Search - Fred

I just wanted to thank the many faculty and staff who last week came out to hear the presentations by Shaily Menon and Karen Libman and to meet with them in other settings. The process has been robust thanks to all of you.  We owe a special debt of thanks to search committee chair Deb Burg and the rest of the committee.  The process is on-going and I hope to be able to make an announcement soon.
