It’s been one year since I joined George Mason University, and I wanted to say thank you. Thank you for helping Beth, Alex, Emily and me feel at home from the moment we arrived. Thank you for helping us understand and appreciate this very special institution. But most importantly, thank you for all you do for Mason. As I learned about the multiple elements of the Mason community, I have been constantly impressed and inspired by the caliber of people I have encountered, their professionalism and dedication to our students and to making our university the special place it is.
What an exciting year was 2012! It is hard to believe how much has happened at George Mason University in the mere six months since I arrived. I am delighted with the progress we have made on a number of different fronts and very grateful for the assistance I have received from so many of you.
