Dear Colleagues,

I urge you to come to our all-college meeting tomorrow morning (September 1). The meeting will run from 9-11 a.m. in 130 Murphy Hall, located on Church Street on the East Bank of the Minneapolis campus, south of Rapson Hall, near Washington Avenue.

We hold our fall all-college meeting in Minneapolis to avoid the State Fair traffic, and will have our spring meeting in St. Paul. For those of you on the St. Paul campus, do consider taking the campus connector bus, since Murphy is close to the bus stop at Northrop Mall and we no longer have money in our budget to validate faculty or staff parking for college meetings.

At the meeting, we'll give you an update on the state of the college and on events that have happened over the summer. We also want to get your input on how best to move forward on several fronts and let you know of some of the highlights of what we might expect this coming academic year. Come to reconnect with colleagues and catch up on where we left off before the summer break. I look forward to seeing you tomorrow -- 130 Murphy Hall, 9 am.
