As I write this, spring semester is ending and we are about to celebrate our spring commencement ceremonies. We will bid farewell to 1,150 students who are moving on to their new and exciting future.We will watch these students say their goodbyes, celebrate with friends and family, and possibly shed a few tears, but we trust that the foundation they received through UNG will be a catalyst to their success as they become civic, professional and military leaders in communities here in Georgia and across the world.
Indeed, as you read the articles in this magazine, I hope you’ll get a sense of the positive momentum we have at UNG. As one person recently said to me, “Things are happening at UNG!” Through new programs like the Center for Cyber Operations Education, our new virtual hospital on the Gainesville Campus, and the success our students are having with nationally competitive scholarships, we are creating amazing opportunities for our students to be regionally and globally competitive.
The bottom line is that UNG’s future is bright. The key to our continued success is being true to what we are and our mission and values.
What a privilege it is to serve this great university. Thank you for your support of UNG and our students.
