You Called, We Responded
At the end of the first year of the Dean's Dispatch, we asked our A&S community for feedback on our communications. Your responses showed us that there was particular interest in knowing more about deadlines and events, as well as having additional opportunities to celebrate our colleagues and their achievements.

Therefore, two times a semester, you will receive a supplemental issue of the Dispatch with this sort of information, to help you stay connected to our broader community.

Thanks for all you continue to do to make A&S an exceptional community of learners.
